Lady Grace MacLaine, the scourge of the PNW seas! This faux leather boot is soft for slouchy affect, a very reasonable heel for being a heel at 2.5″ and stable on the bottom. Nice piratey flap with a touch of back lace, and red ribbon lacing. Whole sizes only. I always order boots a size larger than my regular shoes, then adjust with insoles and inner-shoe-sticky-thingies from the drugstore. Makes for a cushy, comfy, roomy fit with extra arch support, then if I wear thicker socks or my feet swell from seafood (hee), I take the insoles out. Let me know if you try that, and how it works for you.
