I got these in black and they are gorgeous. I'm usually a size 40 in euro sizes like Dansko and even in other taos shoes, but these boots I needed the 41. They were a little tight across the top of my foot when I first put them on but after one day they have loosened right up and I know will wear in really well. They're works of art but the best part is they have pretty good arch support. I have some injuries to my feet, very low arches and usually wear Dansko. These don't have cushioning so I wouldn't want to be on my feet all day, but on a day when I'm just up and down from my desk at work-- great arch support for such a cute boot. Highly recommend.
