Steve Madden 'Flank-M' Boot
After reading recent reviews on this boot, I decided to give them a try. The reviews recommened to go down half a size, so I did. I am usually a size 8, but decided to order a 7 1/2. My only concern with the boot is that everytime I take a step, my heel pops out of the back. If I were to go order a smaller size, it would just be too tight. They are uncomfortable after the first few days, but after breaking them in it is tolerable. I was also disappointed in the color, the light brown that is pictured is more of a dark chocolate in person.
Cute Idea, But Average Design
I wanted a Spring Boot to wear with my leggings. I had been looking for a perforated leather shaft boot and came across these. I thought I had hit gold!
I was disappointed when I got them and realized, the shaft is not perforated leather, but just a nylon net material. It just does not flow well with the rest of the leather boot.
Also in the picture it appears as though the shaft stays up...but it doesn't, it folds over and slouches since it is cloth. May be a good idea, just not an attractive design in the end. I returned them.
beautiful boot, terrible fit
beautiful boot, unfortunately this boot is huge in width and arch area. My foot literally came out eveytime I took a step. I would order a smaller size but the boot would be too short as the lenth was true to size. Very disappointing.
HUGE! Go down AT LEAST 1/2 size!
Love the boots they are fantastically cute and "tough" and no other store seems to carry them (YET). BUT PLEASE ORDER A SMALLER SIZE. I wear steve madden regularly and always fit a size 7.5, so I ordered in my size. These boots literally feel like I am wearing a size 9! They flop right off my foot. I would return them for a smaller size,but I live in Canada so it is a huge hassle. I would honestly go a whole size smaller myself. I wish someone have reviewed them before me so I knew. SO this is for all of you - my good duty for the day. Plus I think nordstrom left some security device on them because the alarm goes off every time I go into a store now.
