Love the rich gold of the boot. High heel, but not unmanageable if you are used to stiletto style footwear. I am normally a 39-39.5 size depending on style and was tentative to order without trying on so ordered the 40 to be sure. Ideal with a little insert to bring the size down and to give a little padding under the balls of the feet when wearing for a longer period of time. The elegant design of the boot allows versatile use under trousers, with jeans and dresses. May be tempted to order in another colour too.
