This very nice-looking shoe went back because, though it was just what I wanted style-wse, it was too small in the size 10 that I ordered and what I felt I really needed was the 10.5, which they don't make. Goes straight to 11. Common but frustrating.
I had been looking at these boots for so long but the price and the fact that they are leather really held me back. Its really hard to find a pair of boots I love. Finally, I gave in and splurged. Up until the time I received them in the mail, I was sure I would be sending them back once I tried them on, based on some of the negative reviews about sizing. Well, I must have gotten lucky because they fit perfectly like they were made for me. And the cushining is thick and comforatble! The only 'negative' comment I can make about the boots involves the leather straps, they are on the thin side and I worry that with enough wear they will break. Also, I had to add more holes to the straps-for the buckle- so that the boots fit more securely. These are the most expensive boots I have ever bought and prob will ever again, so I will take extra good care of them! I also love that they are made in the USA!
years ago when this style 1st appeared I bought it in brn distresses, loved it although it was just a little on small sz....still wear it but knew I needed to go a size larger with my new black pair....the old one was not sz labeled! guessing it was an 8, I first went with a sz 9 on this one- huge!(I am always a EU-39 ) So I returned for an 8.5...perfect sz but then I had to deal with the issues everyone mentions of mismatched and/or annoying imperfections w/ this boot. The only one I can't accept is when one boot is an inch higher in the shaft than the other....first 2 pairs were that way.....ordered the third pair and that issue was resolved but the strap on one was thin and worn, strap much wider and thicker on other....but willing to overlook.....NO issue with width like others say, surprising because I have bunions and a wide foot (not a fat foot, but really pushing B width shoes) it is a really comfortable boot for me .... slips just a little like people say but that doesn't bother me
***bottom line is this boot looks wonderful and is worth the effort and its price
I love these boots! I will get alot of use out of them! The only downside is the straps-they are not thick. They are thin so, I try to remember that when II put them on. They do tend to run a bit larger (in size). VINTAGE SHOE makes a great product. That is one reason, I chose these boots.
I believe that: these boots are a similar pair; which were made and worn in WWII. Isn't that cool?
