True to size, nice construction, super cute. The husband even noticed. That's gotta mean something. After wearing them for a couple of months I love them even more. Transitioning to spring & summer well. Buy these already, will ya?

I love, love, love these boots. They are so so comfortable and look perfect with dresses, skirts and crop jeans or pants. They fit true to size. The leather is fabulous and I love the hot pink lining. The buckle is a really cool look too.

Great boots, super cool, I love the buckle. The boots were TERRIBLY hard to actually get on my foot, but they were easier to take off. At first I thought I'd have to send them back since they are too hard to put on, but I kept taking them off and putting them on and voila, after a zillion times? They go on beautifully at least. :) Great boots.

Stylish and comfortable. I went a half size up and so they fit well. Also, I have narrow feet and am able to get my feet in without difficulty unlike some other customers.

Just received these boots and I love, love, them! Followed review advise and ordered a half size up. Fit is perfect. They are so comfortable and sassy. I am over sixty and wore them to the theater with tights and pencil skirt. Today will be with jeans! They are both stylish and comfy. Get em before they are gone!

A most beautiful boot. Great leather. Just cool. I wanted something a little over the edge but not too flashy. Well constructed.

I absolutely love these boots! They are so sexy and so comfortable, I never want to take them off. They were a bit awkward to put on at first (the top seemed tight)...but wearing thinner socks did the trick. I think once they are stretched you could probably wear thicker socks if need be. The pink lining inside is just an added bit of sexy. Love that the buckle is adjustable to give that extra slouchy-chic look! Loves it!

I love these boots, the inside linging is bright pink and the leather is very nice. I typically wear an 8 1/2 and have somewhat narrow feet and could have almost worn a 9 in these, but the 8 1/2's are not too short. Love the buckle, great buy!

This is such a great boot all around. I did have to get them a half size up because the ankle part of the boot is sort of narrow for me. The boot is well made and the buckle does give it a statement! I got these in black.

I love these boots! They are stylish, fun and comfortable! I wear a 7-1/2 and they were true to size! Only drawback and they don't go on as easy as I'd like but would NOT want a zipper in them.

Love them. These boots are cool, comfortable. Stylish well made. Must have purchased at least eight boots recently and returned most all of them! These I'm keeping for sure, they are my new favorites. The leather is awesome and the pink lining is adorable. True to size. And good width not narrow at all!

I love these boots! I usually wear an 8.5 narrow, but got these in an 8 and they are just a little too wide, but nothing a thick sock won't fix. The leather is beautiful and the buckle doesn't look as huge in person.

I was on the fence buying these since I like to read others reviews and these only had once review at the time...but I'm so glad I did! They are so comfortable! Leather is soft, don't need much breaking in and they're cute and funky. Love them!

Love the look of this bootie. A bit funky. Haven't walked far in them yet, but seem pretty comfy. Will be great for skinny jeans, leggings, with dresses or tunics, etc. They are true to size, roomy toe bed and can wear a sock with a moderate thickness.

These are super cute boots. The quality doesn't equate to the price tag. Seem a little bit more on the plastic side on the upper. Not the easiest to get on as there is not a zipper. I ordered an 8.5 which is what I wear in all my Born and Ugg Boots but just ordered a 9 to see if they fit a bit better as the 8.5 is a bit snug. Cute none the less and the fact they are on sale is worth the lack in quality.

I love these boots. I'm thinking of getting them in the taupe as well (I have them in black). I just think they're really stylish and look great with jeans. The only thing that I was kind of bummed about (not enough to return them, mind you) is the sole is all rubber. From the pictures I couldn't tell and maybe I skipped it in the item information part too.

A very comfortable and a great quality product. They look great with jeans and skirts. I wear a size 8-1/2 shoe, and a size 9 boot, but these fit well with room for socks in 8-1/2. The only problem is that they are narrow where the belt/buckle crosses the boot, are hard to pull on, and fit snugly in that area. I have a regular width foot so I wouldn't recommend these for a wide foot.

These boots are adorable, BUT the 7.5, which ultimately fit well, took ten minutes to get onto my feet. I tried the size 8 as well, but even though I could (without help from my husband) get the boots on, they were just too big. These boots need a ZIPPER!

I am so sad! I could not get them on. I wish you would put a zipper on these. They were my favorite boots for winter 2012. Betsy, give us these again in boots we can get on. And my sister wants them in size 11. Come to us...

These boots offer style, but that's about it. You are pretty much buying the name of the designer with these, not much else. The quality is poor, these are cheaply made and I think they will wear out quickly due to the poor stitching and low quality of the leather.

UGH! The taupe leather color is gorgeous and the boot is the perfect style... BUT I CAN'T GET MY FEET INSIDE THEM! I've read other reviewers mention how narrow the instep is, and they weren't kidding. I don't want to go up a size, because it's no guarantee that sizing-up will solve the problem, and more than likely the fit of the boot will be too large. Regretfully I'll have to return these.

I am a small person with small feet. While these shoes are very cute, they do not have a zipper, and I could not even get them on my feet.
