They're my first pair of *good* boots, and i'm so in loveee. I initially was planning on buying a pair of Prada boots but decided against them because they were just a bit too clunky and well.. on me, a little hooker-ish, haha.. Probably because i'm a pretty small person and the boots were just.. overwhelming. But the JC's are perrrfeecctt! I've never been much into pointy toes, but these are just so rich looking and feminine, they really work for me I ended up getting them in "Coffee" and they are TDF, the leather is soo nice. AND they fit my calves perffeectttly, which i was weary about after reading some threads here.. I guess i'm thinner than i thought **shrugg* These are them!
