"These boots look very sheek and they made well, but if you have anything but narrow feet you probably want to go up another half size."

Cute boot, but way too stiff
"These boots are beautifully made of high-quality leather with great attention to detail (even on the inside - the lining is butter-soft leather). I also loved the style - one foot in "goth" and one foot in "vintage". The fit seems true to size. (I wear 8.5M and the boot fits my foot perfectly.)
Sadly, I am having to send them back because the entire boot is uncomfortably rigid - including the shaft, the sole and the shoe. The sole doesn't bend when I step forward. Instead, only the shaft bends -- at the ankle, with a single hard crease with each step, so that the front of the shaft presses uncomfortably into the front of my ankle. Despite being made of leather, the shoe is completely rigid with no "give" at all, and is therefore extremely uncomfortable to walk in (although it fits my foot perfectly, with no pressure points when I'm standing still)."
