Rated 5 out of 5 by TheLadyInBlack A Wonderful Boot for the Victorian Look
I love this boot for many reasons, not the least of which is that it is comfortable.
Now, I am unusual in that I have short but very wide feet -- I am a 6.5 EE. So when I ordered a half size up, they were too small. But when I ordered a size 8, they fit the arch and ball (widest part) perfectly, and with a pad in the toe part of the boot, they are very comfortable.
I love the look, and they polish up to a high gloss. I recommend this boot highly. If you have very wide feet, I would suggest going a full size to a size and a half up, depending on how wide your feet are -- better yet, call Shepler's excellent customer service and they can help you size your boots.
I have several long full skirts that I wear with this boot and it really completes the look. With the pad in the toe I can walk in them all day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DCKitty73 Miss Kitty is happy!
Great boot for costuming purposes. Looked all over the Internet for good, sturdy boots for my "Miss Kitty" costume...these are working very well! My only complaint is that there is little cushioning in the footbed, making my feet rather sore after hours on my feet (and trust me, I can't sit down much in my costume...). I cannot speak to how durable they are as I have only had them for a little over a week. We will see how they hold up this summer. Thank you, Shepler's!

I purchased these for my wedding. They have lived up to my expectations! They are beautiful and reasonably comfortable :-) Very unique and vintage. Just what I was looking for. Well made too! Glad I ordered a half size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelster58 Great boots! Comfortable out of the box!
I recieved my boots within a couple days. I bought a half size bigger after reading comments and the fit was perfect. Wore them to church and a 2 hour grocery shopping event first time out of the box. Very comfortable! I wear a lot of vintage, long skirts and they complete the look! Love them and will buy the black pair.

If you like the old fashoned look these are for you = I bought 1/2 size bigger so I could wear socks I wish they had a little more padding in the bottom but I usually wear crocs so that may just be me very comfortable other than that

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pootie Nice lookin boot
Looks just like the photo. It said to get a bigger size, but I just got my regular shoe size and it fits fine. Nice boots to wear with jeans or skirts!

Really like the look of it, was exactly what I was looking for except the heel is too high.
I took a chance since they could not tell me even on the phone how high the heel is.
It should have the heel size on the product information.

Looking for authentic Victorian? These are it!!! Gorgeous antiqued leather, perfect in every way. The only thing that could have made these boots more authentic was if they also had a leather sole.
These do run small I rodered a full size larger than my shoe size and a half larger than my boot size and they are still a bit snug on my very high instep. Not to worry, leather forms to the foot after a few wears so these will be the most comfortable part of my Victorian waredrobe.
Can not WAIT until the Black pair arrives.
