nice styling, details, and fit

Very cute boot. It is cut fairly narrow in the toe so I would not recommend if you have a wider foot. I ordered my normal shoe size. The length is right on and the width is just a hair slim on my medium foot. I ordered the black. The shaft is made of soft, somewhat thin leather that hugs the leg nicely. I am petite and the shaft hits at a very attractive place on the calf. The shaft just fit my athletic calves, and I was able to get skinny jeans on under the boot and they look great. The reason I could not give it a higher rating is that on the pair I received, the zipper on one boot catches. I keep trying them on at home to see is this "works itself out" but I am considering returning them because of it. For being such a nice boot overall, I wish it had a higher quality zipper to match the thoughtful detailing and quality material. The boots' styling is elegant and understated even though it has western detailing and I could imagine wearing it frequently, but I fear the zipper might not hold up. I like it so much I may exchange to see if the zipper problem is just a fluke I haven't heard other reviewers complaining so it may just be a problem with this pair. Still, the Melinda is a very attractive, terrifically priced boot and I strongly recommend it, even with said concern.
