a little about me and my feet:
i love love love heels and wedges! i wear a size 9.5 shoe and often shy away from anything taller than an ankle boot as i most definitely have a plus calf at just under 20" around. my feet are abnormally thin and bony compared to the rest of my 5'4", size 26/28, 46DDD-46G frame.
about the boots:
in the foot, i almost wish i'd gone down to a 9. they're very roomy, but not uncomfortably so. they lace up and have an inside zipper as well. the boot closes over my calves with no problem and doesn't gap at all. my only complaint is that i had to move the buckle to the furthest hole, and even then it barely makes it across (the buckles are purely decorative and are Velcro'ed into place). for someone who lives for shoes, i'm ecstatic with my purchase. they're extraordinarily comfortable! they've a little thickness to them, but not so much that i feel like my feet are sweating to death.
all in all, i definitely recommend these! i wish they came in brown - i'd break down and own brown shoes, goth scene points be damned!
pictures soon! i'm late for a dinner date as it is and i couldn't tell you where my camera is if my very soul depended upon it...
EDIT: the boots are definitely suited to a wider foot than mine. not uncomfortable per se, but definitely something that i need to adjust to. and sorry to those of you who asked which boots - when i originally made the post, the word "boots" in the first line was supposed to go to the link. in my haste (even though i was still late), i completely put in the code for image instead of a link.
and now, instead of doing my homework in a timely manner, i shall respond to the replies...
