(I so totally don't do the platform boot thing. I want boots I can walk to the club in, and then dance in for five hours.)
On the other hand, they fit my Giant Ukrainian Calves with room to spare. The UK 8s fit my size-ten-and-a-fraction clodhoppers perfectly: if anything, I have room for cushy socks, even, and usually shoes pinch my feet until they break in. And they smell amazing. (Mmm. Leather.) Also, purple plaid lining! Aweeesome.
