I really want a pair, are they comfy? the size 6 feels massive the 5 feels snug, are they big or small made 😀

So comfy and impossible to wear out
I think they are made big around the toes but easily tightened up around the ankle so they feel secure IYKWIM

I have went for the smaller size so I'm wearing them around the house to see how it goes!!

Beware there might be a wearing in period! After that, as Ladybird says, they will be super comfy. Wore mine with socks and tights until worn in.

Wearing in definitely takes a while. I would make sure you have some Compeed blister plasters to hand. Some people recommend wearing a think sock underneath a thicker pair.

Do you think I've done the right thing going for the smaller size? the bigger size felt huge and looked huge 😄

If you had gone for the bigger size, you would get more blisters. <bitterexperience>
Personally I would wear them in quick before sandal wearing weather
week season. Blisters spoil a good pedicure

Thanks guys, I am a bit in love with them 😁😁

What sort did you get? (I have several pairs, boots and shoes.)

They generally run big IMO, I've had to buy a size down before. If they're patent they can take a wee while to break in but once they do, they're great.

i think the sizing is different according to the style. You need to try on to know

Yes they are patent, flora style .

I wear mine with 2 pairs of socks. I'm sure the army/polis/posties are advised to do the same so the friction and rubbing is between the socks and not between your feet and the docs.

Slightly small and then broken in sounds good!

I have recently resurrected my old DM boots from my teenage years. They're still in excellent shape after (ahem) twenty-odd years. They also still have opera lyrics in faded TippExx on the tongue. I was a very cool teenager...
