Nice casual
4.5.2012
"Got the black one and they are a little large for my usual size 7. Comfy. The tips of the shoes seem a lot rounder than on the picture and the material used (not sure if it's real suede) is quite shiny. Will wear with skirts or pants."

just as i imagined
3.8.2012
"i love these boots. i've only worn them once and it was slippery out so can't say just yet if they will be comfortable for a long day / night (i didn't walk far# but they look and feel great. they are high #for me# but the stacked heel helps. i'm normally an 8.5 and ordered both 8 and 8.5 #one cognac, one black). i opted for the 8.5 because i needed black more, but i could've worn the 8s comfortably. i don't wear socks typically so that helps. on sale these are a steal!"

Love' em!!!
2.1.2012
"I've got the ones in red. Awesome choice, I'd say. They look like they're a bit worn out, but that's the way they should look. I agree, they are not most comfortable booties, I walked in them for maybe three hours straight and I heard my feet cry a bit :)) From the picture you can't even tell that the heel is pretty high. But I'll never regret buying them, because they are really awesome shoes. Some other reviewer mentioned that they are "snug at the ankle", but I'd like to disagree. I'm 5'6 and 135lb, and around the ankles those boots are anything but snug. So I guess it depends on individual. And I probably forgot to mention - I love those shoes! :)"

Not impressed

"I ordered these in brown. They looks very old and worn out. They are also uncomfortable to walk around too. From the side, they look very long."

Perfect booties
8.26.2011
"I fell in love with these booties as soon as I saw them. I just was in doubt whether to order them in red or cognac colour and finally decided - cognac. Well, the colour is the only imperfection about them - it is not cognac, but light brown suede. However, I rated them with 5 stars as they are beautiful, very comfortable even the heel is high (but very stable, and I am not get used to high heels, usually wear flats). They look as already worn, but definitely they do not look cheap, they are so boho and so stylish! I am 39 in euro size and I ordered them in 9, they fit perfectly, there is enough space for thicker socks. I think they will be my favourite booties for this fall/winter!
Just be aware, if ordering in cognac, that colour is everything but not cognac!

Wish I liked these..
8.24.2011
"I looked at these every day since they had come out hoping to see more than one review but I ended up ordering them any way because they (cognac) look awesome in the picture! Hardly :( The color is not rich like picture, it's more of a faded brown suede. The heel sort of looks cheap, maybe because it's that big. The folds on the top of the boot look nice though, the only thing that makes this boot look like they should be $160. And the thing I hated the most was that cute space between the model's ankle and the boot is not there! They fit snug onto your ankle. So watch out for that because I'm 5'0, 103 pounds and it still fit snug. Wanted to love these, but they're going back."

adorable bootie
8.3.2011
"i got the brown in 5.5 and they fit perfectly. They match with practilcally everything and they look exactly as in the pictures.
The only downside is that they are not the most comfortable boots. worth the pain for the look though."
