I love the style of these shoes and was excited by all of the comments about the ankle opening being so small. I always have issues with ankle openings being too big. I have many pairs of Steve Madden shoes and an 8.5 typically fits me spot on. When the 8.5 arrived I was surprised by how small the foot bed felt, but was thrilled with the how nicely the ankle opening fit my scrawny ankle. I then ordered a 9. I was shocked by the how much larger the ankle opening was with just a half size. I looked like I was swimming in it, though the foot bed felt less cramped. I absolutely love the style of these shoes, so I decided to suffer for fashion and go with the 8.5.

I'm so disappointed these booties didn't work for me, because they are adorable. But I had several issues with them. First of all, the color of the taupe suede version is completely different in person than the photos. It's a mushroom color, not tan. But I still would have kept them if they weren't so painful. Another reviewer mentioned they were small in the ankle, but I think the actual issue is that they are only made for someone with low arches. I have a scrawny ankle but a high instep, and I could barely get them zipped up. Then the top edge of the shoe dug deep into the muscle under my ankle bone, making it painful just to stand. I've never had a pair of shoes hurt in this way. The footbed was fine, though, so if you have a low instep, they are cute enough that it's worth a try.

Sadly I am returning because the width of the ankle once zipped is just too tight (as in it hurt)...I guess I have big ankles. I would think that you'd have to have pretty skinny ankles for this as I am 5'6" and 120 lbs, so by most measures, not a heavy person. Otherwise, I think it's a great shoe, hence the high rating.

Insanely small! I wear a 9.5 and ordered a 9.5 and the foot would barely even go in the boot, let alone be comfortable to ever wear. The color of the taupe pictured online is also quite off from what color it actually is, which is more of a fawn/gray. I ended up also ordering the 10, which is STILL too small. Not sure what Steve Madden is doing with sizing..but it's not working. I do, however, love the style of this bootie and SO wish it worked!

Very disappointed. I ordered these in black and LOVED them so I ordered them in the "taupe" shown in the picture. The color is WAY off, I would call them light grey. I gave my black ones a 5 but these get a 1 because of the color.

Shoe equivalent of a straight jacket... tried a half size up, and still ridiculously small, especially around the ankle. Also felt like they were proportioned oddly, as I felt myself leaning forward to the point of falling over... and I'm used to wearing pretty high heels. Too bad because they look great. Unless you have teeny tiny feet and ankles, these shoes are not for you.

Love the style and color but the bootie's design forces the foot forward and down so my regular size is too small, and the opening for the zipper area is too tight. Never thought I had fat ankles before!
