"I was unsure about these boots at first, because I thought I might want something a little dressier. However, I have these now and am happy. I do have to say that I had to scrub a streak of glue off the front, but it eventually came off with some Goo-Gone and a scrub.I got these boots so fast and wore them on Monday with a long skirt. I live in the tundra of Iowa, so I bought a half size larger than I normally wear in order to put some thick socks in them. They fit well. I understand the reviews that say that they run a tad narrow, but even with a thick sock for me they were comfortable. They were a little snug, but still comfy. I have a wider toe than heel and these worked for me. They aren't as dressy as I was looking for, but dressy enough. Finally, I thought that the heel would be higher based on other shoes that I have and thought that they had a 2 and a half inch heel, but oh well."
