Black suede boots

Very pleased with my boots good fit very comfortable . Hope the suede wears well.


Perfect for skinny legs

After years of ordering boots from a whole range of brands, I finally was able to find the perfect boots to fit my skinny legs and ankles. I measured as they recommend and my new boots are snug around the calf. The slim ankles are proportional to the rest of the boot. The quality of the boots are comparable to other brands in the same price range.



I 've bought Duoboots before but this time I was disappointed to receive the boots several weeks after the initial delivery date. Also, the black boots have a shiny silvery metal zipper which is in none of the pictures and is quite big in contrast with the black suede. I didn't like it much as it made the boots look cheap (a discrete black zipper would have been better). The sole was also quite thin for the price. But most importantly the fit was wrong: way too wide at the ankle which made the boot drop and sag around the ankle. And it was supposed to be a small ankle fit which I don't understand. I was told by customer services that the ankle width depends mostly on the shoe size not on the calf width. that said, this boot shouldn't be labelled as "small ankle fit". Also, beware that return costs may run up to 13 GBP if you're in continental Europe. I was very disappointed as it was not clear upfront just how much the return would cost me. And 13 GBP is just not reasonable as it exceeds by far the actual return shipping costs.
