Took a while to arrive, but not gonna complain too much about that. The boots are gorgeous and sturdy and really comfy. My first pair of heels, and I adore them!
The boots arrived promptly in a plain outer wrapper containing a substantial box full of packing with each boot in it's own bag.
They fitted! Which is a bit of a miracle for me with my size 12 wide feet. They also look quite gothy/fetishy with the black laces that are plenty long enough to finish off with a stylish bow. The fabric looks like delicate lace but in fact it is quite tough nylon-like mesh with a lace pattern printed into it, so it is unlikely to get damaged in normal use. Very nice. I've worn them a few times now and have not suffered the problems I sometimes get with 3" heels.
I work in a 1920's speakeasy style restaurant, and these boots absolutely fit the dress code/aesthetic perfectly. I was nervous about my feet getting sore, but I wore them for hours (walking back and forth along our very narrow restaurant) before that happened! Comfortable, made it for the entire 6-hour shift with little issue, and always felt stable. A great heel!
Having had shoes and boots over the years sold as suitable only to find they too tight or in some cases wouldn't even do up it was a real pleasure to find these. My foot fits easily, does not feel squashed and the lace up design means they can be as tight or loose as I want.
