These boots are awesome! The sole of the shoe has rubber so it feels very cushiony and provides a little grip. I wear 9 1/2 boots and got the 9 1/2 and they are great! I currently have them on and I am so glad I bought these cuties! The zipper is high quality and I think they look even better in person! The buckles on this pair do not jingle at all. These will be my go to boot for my boot cut, boyfriend cut or straight leg jeans!
I'm happy with these boots. As other reviews mention the metal buckles do make noise when you walk. They are a tiny bit narrow: I don't have wide feet, I imagine they suede will stretch after next winter season comes and goes. They do keep your feet warm: I'm wearing them in spring weather and my feet get a little sweaty. They look very nice not too fancy but better than your usual casual motorcycle-style-boots.
Got the black, Size 9. I am usually between a 9 in shoes/boots and a 9.5 in sneakers. The 9 fit well...heel is a bit loose (my heels are skinny) and front of boot needed stretched wearing thick socks for a few nights at home before they were comfy. I don't have wide feet...so ladies beware, these don't run very wide at all.
Gorgeous color and really nice matching buckles. They sometimes make noise when you walk but its not so noticeable. There is really great shock absorption in this boot which is great for the New York city pavement. Comfortable and adorable! I put a coating of waterproof spray for suede which has so far kept them perfectly clean.
