I bought these shoes to wear while im pregnant. I wanted something with a little height thats still comfortable and stylish. These definitely fit the bill. I dont typically wear wide width but ordered this time to allow for a little swelling during my third trimester. The clasps on these are a little annoying to buckle but I was able to slip them on and off without using it. In my experience Bass shoes always run a bit large. I would recommend ordering at least a half size down.

As another reviewer indicated, I could not close the toggle when my foot was in the shoe. I am sorry to have to return this item. Nice color, good fit, but I cannot see attempting to fasten the toggles in the morning when I'm hurrying off to work.

I like the style. The heel is a comfortable height and width. The toe box is stiff and will take a little breaking in. I have a narrow foot, but like to wear inserts in my boots, so these fit fine.

I wear an 8.5/9, so I ordered an 8.5 and my foot was slipping right out of it. I then ordered the 8, and they were a bit snug at the toe, but I decided to keep them. I have worn them several times in throughout New York City and they are stretching out and molding to my food quite nicely. Not to mention they are gorgeous. Definitely a great purchase. Heel height is perfect as well. They aren't the most comfortable boots I own, but they are worth it. Great work shoes.

These boots are really great for those of us that want a fully leather boot that will soften and shape to our feet with wear (rather than stiff vinyl that never will). There is no lining at all, so it is a nice thin boot that will quickly soften in all the bend points. Plus, the nonexistent lining will never wear holes making rough spots. There is some padding in the instep, but it is very thin; fortunately there is plenty of room for an insert. I normally wear a 7.5W and the Primrose 7.5W left enough room in the heel to slip a thumb down the entire back without crowding my toes, so I would say it runs a full size too big, or at least a half size if you like a loose fit. This might be good if you're wearing thick boot socks, but this more of a dress boot you wear with thin socks or hose. The toggle is cute, but a bit hard to use. The heel has a nice rubber grip base though, so that's a nice addition. The toe box is nice and roomy too, so it wont smash the ends of your toenails from the top or cramp your toes on the sides even with wide feet. I like these enough to return them for the next size down, and get another pair in another color.

The leather is beautiful and the heel height works - not too high or low. Nice looking boot. I wish I'd had a better idea of the fit before I wore them...Boot isn't tight around ankle, or on top of foot. Make fit sloppier than I'd like. Even though not high, my foot slides down against toe of boot. I've already added bunches of stuff inside for a better fit.

These boots look funky on and the toe box is narrow so causes your toes to get squished together. Some with larger feet may like the narrowing affect in the toe box but I don't care for it. These are very pretty looking but when they are on, not as cute or very comfortable. I usually love BASS shoes but not a big fan of these.

I love the look of these boots and they were really comfortable - unbuckled! I just could not manage the toggle. I even broke a nail trying. They are cute but have to return them.

These are nice looking shoes. However, the cut of the boots was higher than I expected. As others have mentioned, the fastener would take some getting used to.

I found this boot for significantly less on another website and decided to give it a try based on the reviews here. I love the color and overall style, but it did not fit at all. My left foot is a little smaller than my right, but the right boot was way too tight and the left boot was slipping off my heel. The difference was so great that I checked inside to see if I had received two different sizes by mistake. My toes were squished tight up against the toe of the boot on the right foot-too short to try to break in. It's too bad because I love the style and the heel height. These will be going back tomorrow.

The general style of this boot is very nice, even elegant and, for the money, it's reasonably well made. However, the little metal closing you see there is poorly designed and a real nuisance to open and close. Just the kind of little doodad that will wear out before the boots do! However, the boot runs true to size and it looks stylish. The light brown color and the leather are attractive. I decided to keep the boots though I would have felt better about my purchase had I gotten a boot like this on sale. I say that because the boot has no lining, the aforementioned clasp is cumbersome and because Bass insists putting their label on the outside of the boots. Makes them look kind of cheap in my opinion. (I'm going to take it off.)

Loved the look of this boot, but couldn't fasten the buckle by myself. Should have a closure that only requires one hand to secure/release.

I tried the 7.5w and they were more than a half inch too long in the footbed (major heel slipping and too much room in the tip). However, the 7w was too short and my toes were mashed into the point. How can a half size change be more than a half an inch? I almost thought the first pair were an 8.5 sent by mistake, but the inside did indeed say 7.5 I wanted to love these, since the leather will wear very well and comfortably, but there's no way to get a size that fits when the half size changes are this huge.

The ankle opening of this boot was too wide for me. My feet would slip out and slip forward, causing my toes to scrunch near the front of the boot. The boot looks really nice, just like in the photos, and expensive, despite being made of man-made materials.
