Size isn't what it seems!
I don't know what it was this time, I've bought from Barefoot Tess before, but this time I had to wait for about 4 weeks for them to arrive. I tried to put them on and discover they won't pull over my instep. I've never had a problem in the past. I read a similar comment from another boot enthusiast, so I'm not sure if it is a flaw in the boot or the sizing. I'll try them on again tomorrow. It will be a shame to return them as they look really stylish and feel fabulous. I even ordered a size bigger than I usually wear as it is a boot, which usually call for a heavier sock. These wouldn't even go on with a nylon. :(
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THESE!
First of all, the delivery was fast & I love the link they send so u can track your items. I ordered 2 pair 1 in black and 1 in brown, in size 14, they were true to size. I was concerned @ 1st because the other comments stated that they were narrow & could use a hidden zipper, well my foot slid right on in and I'm a big girl (6'3 and a half, 300+ lbs).

Could have been a bit more fitted around the ankles but all in all a very cute idea and versatile for a variety of looks.

Love these boots!
I didn't have the same issue with pulling the boots on and think a hidden zipper is not necessary. I get tons of compliments on these when I wear them. I already bought the black and may buy the camel too....

Unique & Stunning
These boots are everything I hoped they'd be. Except they are too loose and slouchy around the calves when wearing them full length. My calves are fairly average and I'd have preferred a secret zip or something so that they'd be easier to put on and stay up if worn full length. This is not a problem at all if they are folded over as in the picture.

These were a surprise!
LOVED these boots! Wonderful fit (I have slightly wide feet). Not as crazy as I thought they might be, but enough to jazz up an outfit. Really cosy in winter. Fun to wear
Highly recommend this boot - super comfy and looks great.

Only For Style
I wear these casually when its cold however, they do not have fur in the foot area and are very low to the ground and do not have cushion in them so they are NOT made for the snow. They look good but have hard soles. They are only made for style. Not recommended for someone with bad feet. Also, they do not zip so if you have large calfs you will need to order two sizes up if you want to pull the boots up over your calfs. I wear a 12 and ordered a 14 and still calf size is tight.
Most comfortable shoes I own!

Love That Pair of Boots
I was afraid that I would not be able to get past my instep with these boots since they do not have a zipper. To my surprise, I was able to put them on and eveyone at work loved my boots as I did.

I loved them
I really loved these boots when they arrived. For a size 14 foot, they made my feet look smaller. The bonus is the fur. It's so stylish and I got a lot of looks when I wore them. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing but at least I stood out :)

Put these boots on and walked all day at work, very comfortable, lots of toe room, easy to get on if you pull the top down to the lowest point So nice to have a great looking boot in size 13 Thank you barefootTess for understanding that the large and tall woman likes to look like every one else..you are my new to go place for shoes..

Great Boots! Great Price!
Of course, love these boots because of larger size availability! Very trendy and stylish...which can be hard for me to find in my size. Very comfy and love that they work with just about anything I wear. Caught them on sale, making the deal even sweeter.

Should have ordered my size
I read other's reviews and knowing my big fat feet, I decided to go with a size 14 instead of 13. Should have stuck to my actual size because I have more than enough room for my feet to get in!

Nice looking boots
They look good and are comfortable to walk in. I did buy them for an upcoming ski trip and was a bit disappointed when I saw the sole...no tread of any kind. I plan on taking them anyway and wearing them when a lot of outdoor walking isn't required.

excellent fit and very stylish
I received these boots very quickly even though it was during the christmas season. They are extremely cofortable but would be hard to put on if you have wide feet. They are very stylish and can be worn in various ways for different occasions. I love them. The only issue is you will have to waterproof them if you wear them in the snow.

The Best Choice EVER!
I was a little bit nervous about this order because of the comments made. But still ordered them. With size 12 1/2 wide the 13 just fits perfect and my toes have wiggle room ;-) It wasn't hard to get my feet in at all, and they fit perfect. The only complain I could have is that my feet were too warm, so I guess these wonderful boots have to be used by -/- temperatures, and in this cold part of our country it won't be a problem!I have wide calfs so I won't be able to wear them all the way up, but that's ok they are fun the way they are!

I Would buy this product
Got one foot in :)) my feet are kind of wide and i barely got one in, the other one couldn't. i will keep trying before i will decide anything else. nice boots, really wish to keep them, hopefully will get the other one in too. like somebody said before me, wish there was like a secret zipper or something it would be a lot easier to get them to fit.

This is more of a thank you.
Thank you for carring sizes above 12. My 15 year old daughter is 6 1 and she wears a size 14 shoes. I really want to thank you for catering to people like her it is extremely painful to go in a store and walk out because they don't carry her size. She is still growing and her feet might get even bigger please keep on doing the deed it's a great one."

Couldn't be happier with my purchase!
It's fabulous finding shoes that actually fit a big foot!

I have always had trouble finding a pair of shoes that would fit my large feet. This site was a life saver. I have gotten these boots which are amazing. They compliment most of the outfits I wear to school and other occasions. I have also gotten a pair of black flats for choir. I didn't like how when I put them on in the morning, I have trouble putting my heel in. Whatta shame. But overall, excluding the heel issue, I wear these more than I wear my other boots. That's saying something.

I ordered these after a month of obsession. They are true DIVA boots folded over. Full length is abit odd looking but ok. They are not all easy to get into. There is no give at all. I can get one on but not the other. (I have high instep and one fatter foot) I 2nd the vote for a hidden zipper or something help get them on. Im going to keep trying a few more times before giving up and returning because I really do love these boots.

Best boots ever!!!
I loved these boots as soon as I put them on but didn't expect all the compliments. I've literally had people stop me in the mall to ask me where I bought them! All the staff at work want a pair but .....there feet are too small! Heee, hee! The expression The boot is on the other foot" comes to mind :)"

Sizing is incorrect
I could not get my foot into the boot due to the narrow arch. I am a true size 11. I ended up giving the boots to my sister who is a size 8 1/2 - with heavy socks the boots fit her!!!! If would be nice if these companies could size their products correctly.
even cuter in person
super cute boot, comfortable too. I love that you can wear them 3 different ways for a different look. I cant wait to wear them out
Kari would recommend this product to a friend.
What I love most about this shoe is that you have so many different way's to wear them. You can roll them all the way down, half way down, just turn them down a little at the top or wear them all the way up. I love being able to change my look several times in one day. :)

I'm thrilled. Being a size 11 is a nightmare, but not anymore! Thank you

second pair I bought
The first pair I bought fit fine, but the toe wore out after wearing them only a few times. The second pair I bought are so tight, they feel like the wrong size. They're beautiful boots & I'm keeping them because the cost of shipping I paid was so much compared to other sites that I don't want to waste anymore money.
Just what I wanted
On time, exactly what I thought they would be.So happy

I bought these boots based on the reviews. The only review I should have listened to was the suggestion about adding a zipper. Too narrow for even my thinner foot (feet are 2 different sizes/widths)! The ankle is too narrow to allow foot to slide in. Another return! So sad cause they are so cute!
Cute, Nicely made
I really like these boots except for one problem. I have a high instep. The ankle is too tight to slide my foot through without a zipper.
Love this boot!
I get so many comments on these boots. I did not have a problem putting them on. Normally my right foot is exactly a 13 and my left foot is slightly smaller. So, a lot of times my right foot will not fit. With these boots both my feet fit perfectly. Great/cute boots!

Overall very stylish. Feel somewhat narrow, and therefor tight. Seeing as they are clearly a cold weather shoe I thought they would be more insulated. But overall happy with them
