I just received these boots and they exceed my expectations. I had a good idea of what to expect since, due to the hefty price tag , I did my research. I purchased them in asphalt which is a dark rich grey and they will go with just about every color. I purchased these to wear with dresses and they look phenomenal. Although many reviews state that they can be worn over skinny jeans, I did not like the look. Although my legs are average to thin, I found that pulled over jeans my legs looked chunky and the look unattractive. I tried them over tights and it was better but still am not fond of the look so if you are planning to wear mostly over tights or skinny jeans; I'm not sure I would recommend these boots.
Also many reviews state that they will stretch to accommodate thicker calves and thighs, I'm not sure about this as I purchased a size 71/2 and they are quite snug in the leg especially when I walk. I am a true 8 and sized down a half size and the foot bed is very comfortable.
