Natahleah - Review from Anthropologie
How About Some QC?!?I lusted after these, and finally took the plunge Black Friday. When the boots made their grand arrival, I did a celebration dance as I opened the box. I was met with disappointment fairly quickly. Unless there's a new trend I'm not aware of, my boots had a glaring quality control issue off the bat -- the left one's insole was MIA! I looked down into it and saw some bright white material and the tops of the nailheads holding the soles on. (See photo.) The right boot had its sueded, brand-stamped insole. I thought I could let that slide and just get a replacement, but upon trying them on, my dreams were dashed. I normally wear a 9 in boots, and ordered 9 in these. I found these slightly narrow for my normal-width feet, and, as another reviewer mentioned, the ankles were SO uncomfortably stiff. I could feel the boot rubbing against that little bone that juts out of the outside of my left ankle with each step around my living room. At this price, I expect great quality control, and a pretty darn good level of comfort (these are flat boots, after all -- I'll save my discomfort for heels). I was also not super into the level of distressing on my black pair. The toes were immensely scuffed and a ton of tan showed through. My search for boots with the perfect balance of rugged and luxe continues...

Runs very smallSaw these boots online and had to have them. I own other Anthro shoes and love them. Always a size 8. Ordered an 8 in these and I could barely get my foot into them. They are also very narrow. Wish I would have known this before I ordered as they are now on backorder.

The perfect boot!I can't say enough about how great these are. For me, they are true to size and very comfortable. The heel height is low but they are super flattering with tights and dresses. I ordered the brown and want to get the black as well, I love them that much! The distressing and finishing is perfect, the details, like the rope circlet, are beautiful. Love, love, love them! I ordered my regular size 9 with some trepidation, never knowing for sure about boots, but they are a perfect fit. I have wide-ish feet and calves, and the way the boot is cut at the back near the zipper allows them to fit beautifully.

Cute, not comfortableI will first say that these boots are as cute as they come, (I ordered them in the black). That is why it is so disappointing that they did not work for me. I found them to be the most uncomfortable boot, around the heel and ankle area they are hard and, it is as though something very stiff was inserted in that area and it didn't seem to want to give. The sole is also very hard, felt like I was walking on plywood in my bare feet. One more thing, there is no "tab" to pull the boot on with. They were not too small, just very uncomfortable. For the price of these I expect them to be extremely comfortable!

Great quality but not for high archesI have been in love with these boots and ordered them over a month ago, wating patiently for their arrival. When I finally got them my fears from the other reviews I have read became real. These boots are just narrow, and despite having the zip all the way down the back, I couldn't even get my foot inside. I have high arches and even though i do believe that the leather will stretch, the fact that my feet couldn't even fit in the shoe meant that I had to return them. I would size up but size 10 is the largest they come in. The quality is amazing, as is the look. They are so perfectly distressed and unique.
