ECCO 'Saunter' Boot
Perfect riding boot
The description on the page said that a European size 41 equaled a 10 - 10.5, but I know from living abroad that a 41 is more like a 9.5 (which I wear). That being said, the boots fit almost perfectly and were comfortable the first day I wore them. The calf measurement was spot on. The only thing I don't love about them is that they are a bit loose in the ankle for me (I am small-boned) but hopefully once the leather gets a bit more worn and soft they will feel better.
Didn't work for me
These looked really nice online, but when I received it I wasn't impressed with how it looks. I am returning for two reasons - 1) I don't like the "cheap" look of it (I ordered the black one) and 2) they are too wide for my calves.
My long search is over. I love this boot. It is extremely comfortable while also being adorable. I also love the non slip bottoms. I am taking off one star because I have medium to large calves and have had a really hard time finding boots at Nordstrom this season, even though I have never had this problem with boots in the past. Anyway, when I took them out of the box they were super tight and one wouldn't zip all the way. I sprayed down the insides with rubbing alcohol and put them on to stretch them and now they fit perfectly!
These are beautiful boots. Soft leather and the cognac color is gorgeous!! They fit well and are very comfortable. They have a rubber bottom for better grip. Just what I was looking for. Perfect with skinny jeans, cute skirt or dress.
