cute if the zipper flaps laid flat
I ordered these in the dark taupe colorway and the color is great. The leather is soft and matte, and I can also see how it would age nicely over time. There is little arch support or padding so if that is a concern for you, you will need to get insoles. The main thing that bugged me about the pair I received is that the leather flaps that cover the zipper on each side of the ankle would not lay flat! It was like my booties had elephant ears (okay I'm exaggerating but when I find an issue, that's all I can focus on). Basically they made my feet/ankles look wider than they are. Another slight issue is that there is no rubber sole so you may need to take these to a cobbler to get rubber soles applied (lest you slip and eat it). Anyway, I don't LOOOVE these enough to continously order new pairs until I find ones where the flaps lay flat so I'm sending these back. Otherwise I found these true to size -- I wear a size 6.5 in Sam Edelman and these in a size 6.5 fit perfectly.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected
