"These are much cuter in the picture then in person. I originally purchased the same pattern in the Iron Fist flats and they are adorable, so much so that I ordered these boots. The flats are kind of satin and shiny and the boots look a bit muted and cheap. These seem to run a bit short in the footbed and are super tight in the calf. I would have had to wear them as a slouch boot. I wanted to love them as much as the flats, but back they go."
