Who has bought some new BOOTS?

Having just paid £55 for the regular fit Elexis they've reduced the price to £33 today :-(

I had that happen a number of times, you get your pair and two weeks later they are 50% off.  I use that as an opportunity to get a second pair if I really like the shoe, maybe a second color.

The search facility on the Asos site doesn't seem to find the Elexis boots if you look by size/style etc or any reasonable combination thereof. Odd

Yes, ASOS searching has erratic results.   Expresso (black suede) boots available in most/all sizes (inc 9) in standard (now £35) and wide (£50).   

Strange that the standard fit Elexis/Expresso boots are now cheaper than the wide; the reverse true until today.

Arrived today and they're too small. Just about managed to zip them up but horribly uncomfortable over the instep. So they're going back.

It's possible that UK10 or wide fitting would help so I may order again.

I think you will find the 10 standard or wide a good fit if you are normally a 9; if a little loose, thicker socks will help.   (I wish I only had that fitting problem!)

I've just checked, and Elexis and Espresso (soft suede) are in stock in  both 10 and 10 wide.   If you place a new order (rather than exchange), you should get the lower price on Elexis.   Good luck!

My returns (sent last Thursday) were received and immediately credited  by ASOS today.

Took the return to my local Collect+ store last night. Much more convenient than the Post Office.

I might try the 10 wide. Part of the problem is that the bit that was really tight was at a seam over the instep. Exactly where there will be least stretch in the leather.

Just got the 10 wide and they aren't comfortable either. They just aren't the right shape for my feet. Shame, because I quite liked the style.

That is unfortunate, and I'm surprised that they didn't fit you comfortably.   The Espresso (soft black suede) is possibly more forgiving and lacks the awkward rear zip.

For others interested, today's prices (most discounted) on the boots are:   Espresso £35.00 (Wide fit £50.00); Elexis £33.00 (Wide fit £38.50), with all sizes up to 10UK shown as in stock.   I do wonder if the bigger discount on the standard fit reflects on them being a poorer fit, with fewer sales.   

Various other nice-looking ASOS footwear (in sizes up to 10) discounted too, including some 5" 'Tulita' wedges at £10.50.

I had you in mind when I mentioned them, Jeremy!   Let us know if you get them.

These are very nice too; my favourite sandal style - every woman should have them:   https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-hands-down-extra-wide-fit-barely-there-heeled-sandals/prd/9177568?clr=black&SearchQuery=hands+down+extra+wide&SearchRedirect=true   (I did try a pair in UK10; the heel is  4.5". )  Same or similar sandals available in other colours and fits too.

Yes, I saw them too - I like them a lot, a very simple but sexy sandal. The only thing that put me off was the shape of the heel - too straight and not enough of a stiletto curve!

Hi everyone, my first post on here. I just made a welcome thread too for more info, but here are the booties I recently bought from Call It Spring.
Suede front, everything else stretches which is nice, since my feet are kind of fat now.. I love how point they make my toes look.

4.5 inch heel, no platform, size 10US for those curious.

I've worn 7-8 inch heels in the past, but none with this arch. And I don't think I can ever go back to anything less than a 4 inch arch now.
I definitely like them over leggings or under tight jeans, I love the look.

Please enjoy!

Picked these up the other day. Not usually into single sole boots but I like the gold accents and tassles on the zippers. They fit amazing and are about a 3.5" heels which is relatively shorter than I normally gravitate too.

Nice, I really like these!  The elastic top ensures a clean line regardless of the pants configuration.  Looking good - hope they are becoming as comfortable to wear as they look!

hahaha I can only definitely walk in there for 20-30 mins before it gets sore, but then again, I've never worn an arch this high and my weight too.

Hopefully in time, it will be much more longer.

Heels and fashion are great weight lose motivators.

While not a huge fan of lace up boots, I like the general shape and heel on these.  Look like they'd be fun to wear!

Well done. Perfect sock booties, the heel looks fantastic. Pointed toe makes the shape of the feet better, or sexier for lack of a better term. My higher heel booties are oval toe, round. Find a pointed toe really is striking to look upon. Such as my asos chelsea tan suede pointed toe for example. 

 FullSizeRender.thumb.jpg.b96d4ce5dc5d549221694a1277899f31.jpg

Only problem i find with them is the toe box gets scuffed, discoloured difficult to impossible to clean. Yet tan goes very well with light coloured to medium wash blue denim  skinny jeans. Like you shown covered cigarette leg skinny jeans often make my bootie's look better then displaying the entire shaft. Only difference your sock like bootie is fitted to your ankle makes it look much better than the gap i show here. Usually i see woman roll up there skinny jeans so show off some  skin or wear very short cropped skinny jeans. My only problem i own and wear the trendy  staggered, distressed hem skinny jeans which is difficult to roll up. 

Definitely looked upon purchasing similar sock booties but never could have the nerve to pull the trigger. Sometimes lack of sizing was the con in wanting to purchase such great heels.

haha Well if you are ever interested.

(They got them in black too)

And yea they look nice when the jean is rolled up, but these ones don't have a high shaft, so I don't mind tucking them into the jeans.

Your sure there genuine suede outer materials? The website descriptions seem to stare syntheti materials. Sometime descriptions state leather but often is faux leather synthetic suede. Picture you shown looks like real suede.

Nice try, Lol.... In my opinion long hem roll ups don't look as nice as smaller cuff hem jeans. You need to buy  shorter inseam skinny crop jeans, couple rolls and your shins are showing your done. 

Yet those particular boots you should leave the jeans tucked seeing the fit snug to your leg. Or wearing cigarette leg cut jeans wear them over top. Rolling your hem would bring them up to high on your leg or calves better to roll pant leg cuffs with shorter bootie shaft.
