Very comfortable and quickly molded to my feet. Very good looking with all my pants; I'm not a dress girl but I might be tempted with these! I added an arch support with padding as I have sensitive feet and they are now my go-to booties year round :)
Love these boots! They are so comfortable from the moment they arrive - no break in needed. Perfect heel height, too!
Oh my gosh I love my shoes so much! So comfortable, well made by humans paid a fair wage, and beautiful. I originally ordered a size way too large and decided to go down two sizes. Sarah from the Fortress team reached out to me to confirm my exchange. We decided to go just one size down and I am so grateful I did. They fit perfectly and I've received so many compliments. The sole is slippery, so I ordered some non-slip pads and I haven't had any problems. I appreciate a company that cares about their employees! I cannot recommend them enough.
I had to wait for these to come back in stock because they were sold out and there is a reason! These are so beautiful and match just about anything. Giving an honest 4 star (but wish I could give a 5 star) because the prior reviews were correct, shoe is true to size but is a little tight and you need to wear a different type of sock and break them in by wearing them around the house before the first full wear. Otherwise love the beautiful pair.
The shoes are beautiful. I have worn them almost every day since I got them. The heel feels a little higher than expected, which I like. It makes them look more elegant. There is not much cushion so my feet hurt after standing on them for a few hours. I wear a standard size 6. At first I felt the shoes were a little big and would slide around, but already they seem to have molded to my foot.

Stylist tip: It is often best to buy leather shoes that fit snug upon first wear. This will allow them to soften and stretch around your feet.
