I bought these a couple of months ago from ebay for $70 but just started wearing them with the cooler weather.  They are Sam Edelman "Rylan" from a couple of years ago.  Brand new.  The color is dark red but photos seem to drift to brown due to color balance issues.  They have a 21" shaft and 4" heel with a partial inside zipper.  They are a soft leather upper and shaft with a small slit in the back of the tops.  These fit fairly snug over the calves and a good fit in a size 10.5.  I usually get 10's in Sam Edelman but this style seems a bit snug so the half size up seems to be perfect.

Thanks!  The silhouette of the skirt contributes to the slender look, and it feels good to be able to wear something at my waist line.  I ignored what people say about aging and waist size and with just a little effort got back to where it was before I started college.  Skirts like this will help motivate me to maintain it that way, and I feel better and more energetic like this anyway.  

I might go out shopping later so I won't change into the skirt tonight, but I'm planning to give this a try for breakfast downstairs tomorrow morning.

Those are very nice boots indeed. Would love a pair myself. Alas I’d never find them in my size..

And I quite like the colour as they appear, balance issues or not.

I have seen these in size 11, but not sure they made them in 12.  They also made this style in black and snakeskin.  I had the snakeskin ones a couple of years ago but my wife wouldn't let me wear them so I got rid of them.  Sam Edelman made this boot in a short version called Reyes.  I have that boot in 10.0 grey and it fits the same as these 10.5.

If those are US women's sizes I would need at least a 13. At least...

Snakeskin is kind of difficult - a bit like wearing a houndstooth jacket; not everybody can manage it.

A couple of photos of the new heels , I think they would look better with black jeans rather than demin so I think that's what I will pair with them.

 

Just to clarify these are the faux suede boots and not the Ralph Lauren, haven't got those yet.

Nice looking boots there mate and i agree that black jeans may look better, lovely heels that actually look higher than they are, will give a very comfortable walk

They’re lovely to be honest, personally I’d prefer a darker tan or black but otherwise right up my street, loving the boots and jeans combo too, exactly how i would wear them, and I’m lucky enough to only wear a uk size 5 or 6 so wouldn’t have a problem with fit

My Wife and Iare. not too sure about my most recent purchase. We are thinking the pointed toe might be a bit too pointy. Not sure if to return them and keep looking for a similar style and height with an almond toe?

I would always prefer an almond toe. Never a fan of pointy.

If it helps i love that toe shape, doesn’t hurt to have a bit of variety, don’t want a dozen pairs of boots all looking the same

Definitely like them but no good for me I wouldn't be able walk in a heel that height. Like the shape and the heel but I would certainly need to have a lower heel.

I know what you mean variety is a good thing but I'm just not sure I would wear my most recent boots  with that toe shape. The heel height is good but I'm just wondering if getting something with a similar heel but less pointed I might get much more use out of them

Nothing wrong with that pointed toe.   If you can go out confidently in a stiletto heel, you can cope with that toe too; the overall look is balanced and sleek.

I agree with the others - unless cost is an issue - keep them and enjoy!

I really love the look of these too! Am sure they are very comfy. They look great with the jeans too. Enjoy!!!

These look really good. I prefer a taller heel, but this (kitten style) is really cute too, as it comes down to a really small stiletto style heel.

with the same type of toe and heel. Wear them in public, and I bet you will get plenty of interest and complements.   spikesmike

blueparrot,

That is an amazing colour commonly marketed as cognac. I have on a pair of wedge sandals in the same colour right now. I have a few wedges in this colour and one handbag. Very nice looking on you.

Pierre1961,

I like the height of your boots but I don't own any single sole shoes at all. You have the "joie du talon". HinH

Thank you @spikesmike

I don't feel at ease enough for wearing these Oxford outside. The heel is 17 cm They are perfect for house work,even all day long. But for walking on different surfaces I can't handle more than 14,5 and preferably block heels. That's my limit. Always with no platform. 

Thanks again. 

Pierre
