    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?

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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).

    Sara, so glad you love these! They're definitely worthy of it. Thank you for sharing your size experiences!

    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!!!

    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!
