I wear an 8.5 at 5’3, so I have to be careful about the “lug” being too big! These are sleek enough. I usually prefer my boots to be leather, but being Nine West these are classy enough in a synthetic. They don’t look cheap. They’re true to size with plenty of room left for any kind of sock. I got compliments the one time I wore these with skinny jeans. They are comfortable, too. Can’t wait to wear them again!
