I promised, and mentioned in my Best Boots of the Week 10.20.14, that I’d get back to you once my pair of Laura Boots from Zulily arrived. They did. Last week. And to say I was excited is an understatement! They were well worth the wait and didn’t disappoint. As I hurriedly opened the box and carefully unwrapped them I must admit my face must’ve been a sight to see! They look amazing. They’re jaw-droppingly high, with the heels appearing even higher in the flesh, but that didn’t stop me from getting them on my feet asap.
Like a glove!
The size fitted perfectly, they’re a bit tricky to put on though as although the material is stretchy, the style has a ‘tight-fit’ look to it, but once on they fit like a glove! And boy do I feel tall in them – they bring me up to 5’9″! I love the look of the fabric, it has a leather appeal to it, and not too shiny which contrasts well with the rubber sole and heel.
Special occasions only!
Unfortunately, I have to give these a fabulous rating of 4 out of 5 hearts, but that’s only because I’ll need to practice my walking in such high heels! I don’t think I’ve ever worn a 6″ heel before, but the 2″ platform should help me over-come that. Also, the heel is wide enough so you don’t lose balance too easily. For me, these aren’t an every-day boot, I never intended them to be, I want to wear these on special occasions only. They would also be great if you were going to a fancy-dress party, they would match many an outfit, especially for halloween 🙂
My FABULOUS shoe rating:
