Hi Sexy Shoes Expert, I recently purchased a pair of farylrobin knee-high boots in Black and decided I should share my findings with your readers.
The Larkin boots arrived within two days as promised and at first glance I was very excited with my purchase. The boots looked beautiful, were well made and very stylish. The leather felt smooth and supple to the touch.
Unfortunately, once I tried them on I knew right away that I had to send them back. The shaft of the boot is so narrow I couldn’t get the zipper to close. I wish I would have taken the time to measure my calves before I went through the trouble of ordering.
Here are the measurements provided on the website:
Shaft height measures approximately 15 1/2″ from arch, Boot opening measures approximately 14 1/2″ around, Heel measures approximately 3/4″.
Susan, thank you so much for sharing this information with us.
The farylrobin Larkin boots are certainly very classy, too bad they didn’t work for you. I hope you will keep looking for just the right pair of boots for you.
Here is an easy way to measure your calves:
Sit with your feet relaxed on the floor, now take a tape measure and wrap it round your calf at the largest point. Make sure you wrap the tape tightly to get an accurate measurement. Do this for both of your legs. (If you do not have a measuring tape accessible you may use a string.) Once you have an accurate measurement of both calves, take the higher of the two and you are ready to shop for your new boots.
