I wear these shoes daily. I was looking for something that I could step into the barn if I needed to, but also looked nice around town. They are pretty, and comfortable, and look like boots with jeans. They were a little tight around the ankle at first, but loosened up within a couple of wears. Love these shoes!

They just arrived. They are stiff, but made from leather, so I hope they will soften. From a distance they look like snake skin boots, and it is only up close that you notice the flowers- I think it will grow on me.

I loved the look of these sensible, yet interesting shoes. However, i was concerned by the earlier reviewers' unfavorable comments about the fit. I typically wear an 8, so i ordered a 7.5 and crossed my fingers. When i tried them on they were initially a bit too snug, but after walking around for a half hour, they feel comfortably snug. I love the rubber soles which are safer and quieter than plastic soles. The leather is good quality and the squarish toe is also handsome. They have a kind of men's-wear look that i appreciate. They don't make my feet look bigger than they are, though i imagine that appearance may be a styling feature: similar to the long toes on so many chic high-heels or men's Euro-designed dress shoes. Regardless, the detailed information provided by reviewers helped me make an informed decision that worked out perfectly! Thanks ladies!

I ordered and received a size 9; I put them on; they fit well, but lo and behold! my feet suddenly look like size 11! I can't take it. I have to send them back, which is a pity, because the tooled leather really is an interesting look. It's just that the overall design of the shoe works to make your feet look as big as possible.
