    Carolyn, so glad you are loving this boot as much as Sara. I was just telling her how I picture this boot with anything from a distressed black skinny jean, to a clean structured pencil skirt. I, also, would love to add each style to my wardrobe!

    I will second Sara's opinion about the beauty of these boots. The photos don't quite convey how amazingly soft and supple the leather is and how well made this boot is. I am a 7 or 7.5 and took this in 7.5. Perfect fit and VERY comfortable. I would love to buy EACH style, that's how much I like the quality of Costume National!!!

    Thank you for your help abut the ankle opening. The boots arrived yesterday. They are absolutely beautiful. Perfect! To Yvonne, above, I would counter that I feel Costume National runs a little small, even for high-end Italian shoes, and I always go a half size up with them (i.e. I got these in 9 even though I usually wear an 8-1/2).

    Hello Yvonne! Fellow coworker, Maura, is typically a size 8 shoe, and she found the 38 to be a great fit. Hard to tell in the photos, but the leather has that silky, buttery feel Costume National does so well.

    Hi, I was just wondering whether this shoe fits true to size? I am quite a standard US 7. Any advice would be great! Thanks!

    Sara. Hi! The opening of the size 8 measures approximately 4 inches across in diameter and approximately 10 1/2 inches around. Please let us know if we can measure a specific size for you!

    I'm concerned that the opening will be tight on my lower calves (a common problem with this kind of mid-height boot for me and other muscular-calf women!) - can you give me some measurements?
