These boots make me feel so badass while still being practical and comfortable! I was a little hesitant to spend so much money on a pair of shoes, but I'm glad I went for it. The shape and chunkiness of these boots are so unique. I'm a US size 7 and got a 38, I wonder if I could have sized down because they're a little roomy. But it might be better for when I want to wear thick socks. I spend most of my winters in Ohio and I'm confident that these will keep me from slipping around without compromising my sense of style!
