I bought these boots about a month ago and love them so much that I wear them every day. It took a few days to break them in, and I used an insole to provide some arch support because they are F-L-A-T. After eight hours on my feet, the boots are not so comfortable, but with normal wear they are a treat. With an insole. I didn't even mess around with breaking them in without an insole because I could see that I would need a little extra padding if these were to be shoes
I wear to work. As for the style, I have huge calves and usually can't zip boots up unless they are extra wide. These little guys stop below my calves and flare out at the top -- they aren't meant to hug your leg -- thus making my calves look almost
dainty. They look great with dresses. I love these boots, which is why I was so very sad when less than a month after I bought them, the sole
of the right boot started to come off. Suddenly, the toe was no longer connected to the sole
because it had just been glued on. Rather than return the boots to Zappos and miss out on wearing the boots for even a day, I took them to the shoe repair shop where they were made good as new -- or even better than new, because there seems to be no chance that the soles will ever unstick again. They never got to the flapping stage because I nipped the sole
-peel in the bud, but the dude at the shoe repair shop also did some work on the left sole
because it felt "loose." I would unreservedly give these boots five stars in all categories were it not for the almost
immediate need for repair. I know, I know, I wear them every day, which may not be how they were intended to be worn. But less than thirty wearings later and they're losing their soles? That seems a little shoddy to me.
