I only gave 3 starts because while they are very cute and stylish; these are the most uncomfortable boots I have ever owned. I got them in a 10 because the store was out of 9 1/2 M and the wide width ones of course fit funny. So I tried these on and went with them, now I have a narrow foot so I usually have no problems with regular width shoes. Fast forward 2 weeks later they are still not even close to being broken in and I wear them daily. They are very tight around my foot, so much so that I have to take them off during the day. I've tried them with the same socks I had on when I bought them, thinner socks, trouser socks and pantyhose...THEY STILL HURT.
