Let me add my enthusiastic compliments to the mix: Yes, it's safe to believe all of the extremely positive ratings about these boots! I was skeptical about the heel length especially, thinking "no way a boot with a 3-inch heel can be easy to walk in!," but now I know I was wrong. Oh how wrong. I am a huge fan now and find myself reaching for these boots whenever I have a lot of walking to do and want to look good doing it! I have these boots on right now and my feet are so happy. Just two caveats to include: They are mostly true to size, but I do have to wear socks that are thicker than the usual trouser socks and tights I wear; and they tend to be very warm which is good in the winter, but maybe a bit too warm in the fall and spring. They're so comfortable and stylish, though, that I think I'll be willing to tolerate that. Buy them -- You won't regret it!
