I wanted to like these boots, but they ended up feeling too narrow on my size 8 feet. My feet are normally a true size 8 and these just did not fit very well. They looked okay at first, but felt a little cheap. Then I held them up next to another pair of black boots I ordered (a different brand, similar price range) and the LifeStride Racey boots looked very cheap and plastic-y, unfortunately. A positive note is that the leg/calf width was great. I do not have skinny calves per se, but I often feel boots have too large of an opening around my calf, so in that aspect, they fit great. All in all, I returned these due to look and narrowness.

Love this shoe, but they felt a half size smaller. I usually wear an 8 or 8 1/2. I ordered and 8 1/2, and they are too small.

I like the boots the fit well mostly. I find the toe box is narrow and hurts my toes after walking a while. Too bad they aren't made of real leather so they would stretch out. The heel is made of a rubber like material and is very comfortable to walk on.

After reading reviews I ordered size 7Ā½W. I am a 7. That was a big mistake because they are too long for me. These shoes are beautiful!

These boots are completely mislabeled on the website. They're only a 15 inch around. My husband and I had to both pull and stretch them to zipper and got them to 16 inch, but holy cow were they tight. Hurt after 10 minutes. Will definitely be returning.

Runs large. I usually wear 6.5 and had to return for a size 6. Cushioning is comfortable but more arch support could be had. Overall, cute and mostly comfortable, as I usually avoid heels, but this pair works all day for a dress or slacks. Just don't plan on walking to dinner and back in addition to that as well.

These shoes are lovely but they do start to kill after standing up or walking in them a while. Like really kill. I'm going to put pads in them and hope they'll feel better.

These boots are great. Very comfortable, and a really nice color. The only bad part is the buckles click together when I walk, which can be a little annoying.

Although this boot is beautiful, I would not recommend this for the wide calfed woman. The front of the boot cut into my shin. The rest of the boot is comfortable, however!

I love the shoe style. I just need W/ not M. I would like to pick something else that has the option W. Thank you.

Absolutely loved the style but the toe box was too low and as a result my toes were being pinched and too bad but I had to return them.

I have these in black already and love them. Not sure what happened with the brown. The left was too tight and the right too lose around the calves. Very strange! Also, this color is a bit lighter than expected. Returned!

This is a great heel for those that want comfort. Literally, you can walk all day in this shoe. Not easy to say for most heels. Went ahead and got it in black and navy...why not!

Shoes are very nice. True to size. I have a wide foot and these fit perfect. Little squeeky but I have only worn a few times.

Fairly cute boot but a bit too clunky for me. Feels a bit narrow across the widest point of my foot and definitely too long. Have to return since I found something better.

As others have written, the shaft was too large for me. I loved the look and the heel height, but the shaft was sloppy big. Sad, but these have to go back and I'll keep shopping!

These are nice looking boots, but the heels were just too much for me having screws in my foot from surgeries. Nice fit around the calf. I was sad that they will not work for me.

I was really excited about these boots. Based on the measurements that are given they should have fit perfectly. Upon arrival I couldn't get my foot into the shoe itself, they seem to run a half size too small and the boot was very rigid and unforgiving. Also, I couldn't zip them up past mid calf. I'm 5' tall, I have very small feet and short, thick calves. I'm not sure if I underestimated this or the measurements are just a little off but the boot wasn't up to snuff. I would take into consideration that the shaft circumference is almost 1/2" smaller than advertised and the shoe runs much smaller as well.

I wanted a gray boot. The heel height was good. The problem is the front of the boot comes up high in the front and it is stiff so it rubs your lower shin. It is not pleasant. I made this mistake with another pair of booties I ordered last year. Did not want another pair that I wouldn't wear so back they go.

I'm a 9.5 and bought the taupe Parigi in a size 10. I wore them to my wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. They were the most comfortable high heels I've ever worn, even more comfortable than my 2-inch Nine West wedges. They did not give me blisters (a miracle), and while they were a tiny bit too long, they weren't coming off at any point. I had purchased them in taupe because my dress for the rehearsal had some beige in it, but the taupe ended up being a little darker than I expected. They still looked very nice, though, and I'm looking forward to wearing them again. They're an excellent neutral pump to have as a wardrobe staple. I can't really speak to arch support; I have completely flat feet.

This is a lovely boot. I have calves that measure 17". This boot zipped snugly. However, the foot runs quite small. I normally wear a 9 and am exchanging for a 9.5. I ordered the 9 wide and it did not feel like a wide at all. Definitely best to order a half or whole size larger with this boot (especially if you plan to wear thicker socks). I got both in the black and gray.
