This is a fab little no-nonsense bootie. Clean, chunky, comfy and slightly boyish. There is little consistency in the review comments on this style, but I can recommend it based on my own fitting experience. Thumbs up!
I did not find the leather cheap looking at all. In fact, it’s a well made shoe with neat stitching and solid hardware. The fit around the ankle is flattering and I highly recommend wearing this bootie with dresses and skirts so that you show off the shape and the buckle. I personally find it’s minimalistic look appealing.
They run true to size and go up to a size 12. This style has the potential to be a good city walking shoe. The brown is lovely, but I preferred them in black.
