"I really like these. I wanted a neutral leather bootie with a small heel and these are exactly what I was looking for. They do run a bit big overall. I am often a 10 and sometimes a 9.5 (I measure a true 9.5 with a ruler). I ordered these in a 9.5 and they were quite big with a thin sock. When I doubled the thin sock or wore a thick sock, they fit fine. Some may be able to get away with ordering a half size down. They are pretty comfy. I've worn them all day with only a slight pinching on my little toes by the end of the day, but I think that happens with most shoes that have any sort of heel action going on and a front that narrows as these types of boots do. They are very cool looking. I love the mixed fabrics (leather on the bottom, canvas on the shaft). The canvas definitely keeps them in the more casual category, but that part is hidden under a pair of regular pants, so you can wear them to work if you want. It all depends upon how polished you need to be. They do have a bit of a broken-in look."

"This Nicole boot is really adorable. Truly Western inspired. It does run big (thanks for the tip in the description, DSW!). I'm anywhere from a size 7 to 7.5. With Nicole's, I'm usually a 7. I ordered these in 6.5 and they fit and I can even wear with a sock. I find that I can't show the cute pop of color in the back, though, because if I leave that unzipped, the boot is too loose and unstable (like it will slip off my foot)."
