I bought these in UK 7 Black because I wanted a pair of heeled ankle boots for work. I'm on the short side and wanted something that would give me a little lift. Also wanted something that was a little more practical than heels but would look good with skirts and trousers. I just adore these. They are super comfortable and stylish. I wear them to work but also out in the evenings. The heel is high enough to give me lift without me feeling like I'm going to topple over (I have terrible balance!). My partner always comments on how great I look in them. Keeping my fingers crossed he'll by them for me in Coriander for Christmas!
