Ive been drooling over some similar but insanely expensive black and white boots from Chloe, Celine, Balenciaga and Isabel Marant. When I saw THESE boots at THAT price I bought them immediately!!! They probably run a half size too large... Im usually an 8 or 8.5 in boots. The 8.5 was huge and the 8 is almost too big. Order a half size down if youre torn between two sizes. Theyre pretty comfortable but not cushioned like a pair of Borns or Clarks. Theyre also a little slippery on carpet so Id buy a grip pad if youre going to wear them indoors a lot. The heel is very stable and manageable but I personally wouldnt want any higher or Id have a lot of trouble chasing my toddler around. Im back to buy the turquoise pair now! I think theyll go better with standard blue denim- the black and white ones go best with black leggings or black skinny jeans. Truthfully, the only downside to these boots is that the black and white is a little hard to match with things. Not as versatile as I imagined. If these boots were available in a patent black and suede black combo Id buy a third pair!!!
