Great shoe! I am a size 6.5- 7, and the 38 fits me perfectly. A tiny bit too roomy, so I added soft soles for total comfort. The brown color is luscious. Extremely happy with this purchase. I sometimes experience neuroma syndrome symptoms, but with these shoes I walked all day during my vacation in Europe without any problems. I usually wear flat shoes, and I am so happy to be able to wear a small flattering heel.
With all shoes my right ankle tends to pivot inward as I walk but not with this Naot
boot. Some reviewers mentioned two possible issues. The first, is the width of the ankle (about 10" for size 38 and a side cut gives it even more room to expand). It's wide enough for average ankles and fine for slim ankles because the foot is properly anchored in the boot. The second issue is the top of the boot hit about above the ankle bones and one could fear rubbing. I did feel it to be so when I first put them on, but the leather is very supple and the initial rubbing went away rapidly. So glad I kept them.
I wear them with tight, straight and boot cut pants
. They are a bit more boxy than what I am used to, but they are really cute, and the ability to walk in comfort for a whole day is something I haven't been able to expect in a long time (except with some hiking shoes
These shoes are well-made, and the brown is particularly beautiful. I applied shoe polish and sprayed stain repellent before wearing them.
