Promising review: "Cannot express how happy I am with these boots, they are absolutely perfect and the color is fabulous – goes with everything!! I was skeptical about purchasing online as I'm pretty picky about shoes/boots and was afraid they wouldn't fit or would be uncomfortable, but these were an awesome buy!! Very comfortable, true to size, a nice slouch in the leg, the material is soft like suede and does have some stretch for added comfort, the packaging was beyond great and they arrived super fast!! The first time I wore these out, I spilled coffee on them and thought they were ruined. I went to the restroom, patted the coffee off with a wet paper towel, and then patted dry, and there was absolutely no stain at all. Very happy and impressed!! Perfect transaction from start to finish. Would highly recommend!" —Tracy

I was skeptical but am here to confirm that these are amazing in both that they actually fit (can be tightened/loosened) and they are aesthetically so attractive (TRUE high-knee, lovely color, good-looking chunky heel).

A definite winner in my book." —Eddie
