Like other reviewers said, just untie the lower laces before putting them on and slide in. I also untied the top laces to get a little more calf room at the top. The leather is very smooth, nicely thick and well-made. They are very comfy (I wore them for a whole day) and true to size (8.5). I like the way they look tall (more formal) and scrunched (more casual). I wish STP had shown a photo of them scrunched, because they don't scrunch down very much without looking weird. They also will only stay scrunched about 2 inches lower. I still like how they look both ways.

I was only able to get these boots in the darker color but was still very pleased with them. They are very comfortable. I have a wider calf and was easily able to pull them over a skinny jean. Hope the other color becomes available!

I am very pleased with my new boots, I would definitely recommend them. The leather is a decent quality and soft, not too thick not too thin of a leather. The boots are light weight and comfortable. I am 5'-8", 135 Lb., and foot size 10, my foot is a medium width, in some Sorel snow boots I have needed a 10.5, but these fit perfectly in my size 10. The shaft height reaches about 2 inches below my knee. My calf width measures 14 inches, and I can fit skinny jeans in the boots and still have about 1"-1/2 of room left at the top shaft opening. To put the boots on takes a little work, in my case, I undo the strings to put the boots on and tighten the strings back because I like the boots to show the leg shape as much as possible. These boots have a casual relaxed look they don't really design your leg shape, but I love the look, they still look really interesting and fun on.
I don't need to wear thick socks were I live (West bay area) , but I think my feet would still fit well with thick socks. Because the look is rather relaxed, I wear them with leggings, skinny jeans, or a short skirt to balance the relaxed look and accomplish an overall feminine look. Wide pants over the boots wouldn't work, the boots stick out too much, unless you want to wear them for snow or at a ski resort where wide boots tend to show under pants.
