Prepare to be enchanted - by a cuff!
I fell in love once I cuffed these just an inch or 2, still OTK on my short legs and totally doll-like! Pros: cushy footbed, lovely leather lining, wonderfully stable heel. Suede looks darker and warmer in person. The actual shape of the toe and above the heel makes me feel like someone in a Hans Christian Andersen illustration. Good leg fit (I have 13.5" calf, 17" low thigh). Cons: Heel is 1/2 an inch to an inch higher than I usually wear. A bit poochy around the base of calves near the zip. Regarding the sizing: the Coclico website says these run small. However it's only a fraction smaller. I usually buy 39s, which pinch my left big toe a bit but are loose on my right. 39.5 is ideal but hard to find. I bought these in a 39.5 and they are a wonderful fit, snug but not painful on my left foot and an easy fit on my right. So they run smaller than a typical 39.5 but not as small as a typical 39; in other words, they run almost half a Euro size small, but not quite.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected
