Coté 3 sur 5Â par NewYorkCityAnthro Not what I expected
I lusted after these boots--I love the side zipper, I love the heel height and thought they looked amazing on the model. I received them in the mail yesterday and was, sadly, disappointed. Maybe my expectations were too high. The leather has subtle streaks in it, which I initially thought were faint scratches from shipping, but realized they were all over both boots. I guess it is meant to be some sort of design detail, but the effect just made the leather seem sort of cheap. It wasn't a deal breaker, but I thought it was worth mentioning. The leather is stiff and there is a big "Made in China" stamped on the inside. The zipper also didn't close super smoothly, contributing to the overall cheap feel. The biggest problem, however, is that the top of the shaft hits my knee cap in a super uncomfortable way. I have other knee high boots and have never experienced this problem. I think there is a reason that the model photo shows the boots from the side--standing up looked absurd--the boot sits really awkardly on my knee cap. Back they go.... For reference, I am a 9,5-10, usually 9,5 in boots. I ordered a 9,5 and it fit fine. Regarding the shaft height: I am 5'10" and the boot came up too high--Maybe on a shorter peron it would be an over-the-knee? 13 octobre 2012

Â par Lulu7 My favorite brown boots...
I received many compliments on my first wear! I wore to work all day and they were very comfortable. I really want them in black too! The brown color is a distressed look, the leather feels great! So far so good!

Coté 5 sur 5Â par jewishjen PERFECTION
I saw these in store and absolutely loved them. My size wasn't available in store so I had to order online -- I am normally a 9 or 9,5 but I opted for the 9.5. Thank goodness I did, because I definitely could not have done the 9. The 9,5 is PERFECT, I am normally worried about tall boots because I have athletic legs/calves. but these fit perfectly over them and are not too snug. I got the distressed BROWN color. They are a dark, rustic brown and look great with skinny jeans, leggings, or paired with a dress. I have worn these much more often than I intended! After a couple days of breaking them in I could wear them comfortably through a full work day with no problems. I am 5'9" and these reach my knee cap. I saw one of the associates wearing these who was significantly shorter than me, and they come to about the same height on her leg. These are a must-have!! 21 novembre 2012
