M. Antonio does it again!
"Man; I just adore his shoes! They are so on point with trends but also classic in styling and comfort. These are no exception!
As with all M. Antonio boots and booties, I must order 1/2 size down. I only wear a very thin sock with my boots/booties so that extra 1/2 size up would swamp my foot.
While these are pointed, they are not exaggerated in length (think "Witch Toes"); they stop at the right length from your toe so you don't trip on your own feet (always embarrassing...even when alone) or get that unsightly crease across your toe. The best part is that they don't pinch, which is a rarity with pointed styles.
As with all of my M. Antonio boots/booties, the heel is quite high, another positive attribute of M. Antonio designs. I have no prob walking in them and find them very comfortable, even without any platform (no platform is preferable, for me). I adore the classic stiletto shape and that the opening for the ankle is nice and snug, preventing a "Bratz Doll" look.
The buckles tighten up quite nicely so it really hugs your foot. That said, I am adding one more notch on my right boot as that foot is slight narrower than my left; easy peasy to do. The tabs lay flat, if you tighten all the way but if you have a wide foot and leave them on looser notches, they may stick out...not sure since I don't have the width under the tab to support it, when loosened.
There is no zipper entry but the buckles are so easy to manipulate that I actually don't care. I think the zipper would have been a visual detractor, to be honest.
Lastly, the thing that I like the most about them is that they provide an edgier style without being so edgy that they look cheap or will be dated by tomorrow. My hubby loves them (we are in our 40s) and even commented that he liked the bit of edginess in combination with their clean lines and sexiness.
If you are on the edge, go ahead and fall right onto the side of "BUY THEM" as they are well worth it! :)"
