These boots were bought when I noticed that my favorite slouchy flat ankle boots had a huge crack in them and I needed something to take the pain away.. They were a TINY bit uncomfortable the first time I wore them, at the heel part of the shoe. But now they are just fine (huge relief since I was really scared they'd stay hurting me). I love that they're a perfect shade of brown and the gold stud detailing. A simple boot but still interesting with the slouchiness and all..
