I'd been looking at these boots for a while but hesitated to buy them. I treated myself on Cyber Monday to an early Christmas present and am sooooo glad I did. Although they look fabulous online, they are breathtakingly beautiful in person. The heel height is slightly higher than I normally wear, but they are extremely comfortable (no breaking in needed), and I'm on my feet alot during the day. They are super sexy but also classy. They look fabulous with skirts & tights, dress pants, leggings or jeans. These are the most gorgeous, uniquely designed, exquisitely made boots I've ever seen. I was quite impressed to see the trademark on the zippers that's found on high-end designer purses. Don't hesitate to buy them - you'll look and feel like a supermodel when wearing these boots. I am thrilled with this purchase. Many thanks to Shoebuy.com!!
