Versatile, comfortable, year-round boots!
Wow -- where do I start? I love suede boots; glad I don't live in a rainy area. I love the color -- they will truly go with just about anything. I am 5'2", but I won't wear any heels over 3 inches anymore, so this heel gives me as much additional height as I'll tolerate! I love the floral detail cut-outs on the wrap, and the tie at the top can be tied on the front, back, or sides. For getting them on, I had trouble with my high instep trying to get it on as a tall boot. So I took the wrap off the boot, stepped into the wrap, pulled it up a little, then put on the short bootie. Then I could adjust the wrap on the bootie. As for size, I wear 5 1/2 to 6. I bought these in a 6, and I'm glad I did. I think they're true to size, but with boots I like the option of wearing a thicker sock. They're fitting well with thin-to-medium-weight socks now, and don't press on my instep like 5 1/2s sometimes do. And yep, in Wyoming, these can be worn year-round (as long as I don't have to walk through snow -- that's no bueno for suede. :-) And they really did come with a strand of pearls! I'm so glad I bought these, after looking at them for a couple of months. And Rivertrail packaging and shipping was perfect, as usual.
