These boots are surprisingly comfortable!! I have a physical disability and was concerned that the heels would be too difficult to walk in, but the heels are both wide and flat enough to not cause any trouble!! They add just the right amount of fun to any goth outfit, though it's not super practical for everyday wear. I regularly wear a women's size 9 / men's size 7 and a 9 fit perfectly. The ball gag strap was a bit big around my legs even on the smallest size, but I think it's intentional and it doesn't look out of place.
