hey all! i just got my madeleines...the leather is awesomely soft and smooth, it's a very floppy boot, not stiff like i thought. it's pretty comfy inside, i'd probably be able to walk around for a while in these, as it has decent support. i got 9, and i'm usually 8.5-9 with a wider than normal foot. it fits perfectly with socks. okay, here's the thing...my calf is around 13.5-14 inches around, and the boot is about 15.5-16" around...so its definitely too big for me. i took pics of me wearing em with leggings (scuse the wrinkly red skirt, i pulled on something so i wasn't just in leggings!), and it seems a bit baggy, but i know a lot of people like that look. personally i'm a fan of fitted boots, but i should just give up consider boots are almost always too big on me! and accept the "baggy" boot look but, they do look FAB when worn with jeans, i think! what do you think? keep or return? (i got em for about 50% off) please be honest!
