Felt true to size with a stylish design. However, when I went to put the boot on for the very fist time, I used the shoe loop at the back of the heel to pull up and over my heel, the stud, holding the loop came right out! On the very first pull it came out. I had to return these and didn't reorder, worried that the same thing might eventually happen again. It really needs to be stitched on, not with a stud that doesn't hold the leather together. Lately, the quality seems to be lacking in this brand...wish they were still made in the U.S. for how expensive they are.
