I love the look of these boots, but was afraid they might be difficult to get on, especially since I broke my left foot last year and have a callus on the bone. I went up half a size and tried them with thin socks and didn't really have a problem--just untied the pom pom ties and wiggled my foot in. They are so cute and unusual. I can't wait for next winter! We have lots of zero degree days in Western Maryland and these will be perfect. They look great with leggings!
