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.
The sizing is correct, on and off these boots look amazing. They are comfortable, light and not too transparent. The lace detail is well designed and can be seen but isn’t overly thin. An excellent pair of boots that can be used for a variety of uses.
