The Babycakes are an excellent, wide fitting boot with a fairly standard fitting calf and length. A fantastic boot for all kinds of feet!

I spent Thursday afternoon in the Los Angeles store trying to figure out a way to get these boots to fit me. Sadly, my feet are just too small and the size 6 would not work even with inserts, 2 pairs of socks & much determination. I would love it if you could consider making this line in a size 5 for those of us with smaller feet.

Best Boots EVER
I bought these boots for my wedding. In fact, I designed my dress around these boots. My calves are the tight, wide, athletic type, so the boot shaft needed to be stretched just a bit. BUT the Fluevog store in SoHo did that for me, free of charge! Hello awesome customer service! Anyway, I took these to Rome for my honeymoon and walked for miles every day in these boots. I toured Castel Sant'Angelo in these boots. I walked miles of cobblestoned streets in these boots. I checked out the Vatican Museum & St. Peter's Basilica in these boots! I hopped up and down the Spanish Steps over and over again in these boots! Oh yes I did! We walked everywhere, never taking public transit or cabs. And my feet NEVER complained. They were tired, but happy. Here's a little tid-bit about my stupid feet. I have high arches, wear orthotics, teach Zumba, have a wicked case of plantar fasciitis and these boots are like a dream come true for me. I love them and I will be buying more. I think it's the wide heel and the appropriate amount of fore-foot support the boot offers. Thank you, Fluevog!!!! Love love love!!! @>- :-B

I bought my babycakes a year ago as my reward to me for my new job. I love the look of them and always feel empowered when I wear them. I am not a heels girl though and the 3 inches are just a bit much for me. They are easy to walk in with the rubber soles but the balls of my feet get really sore after about 6 hours. I do love them though! I feel fierce wearing them. They go with everything and they always get noticed.
Oh what PERFECT boots!
Babycakes, you are a dream come true!
The Babycakes (in super hot red) were my first Fluevogs, and I do not think there could have been a better first impression.
I'm anything but traditional, so when I started planning my bridal wardrobe, I saw it as a perfect opportunity to purchase my long-lusted-after Babycakes. Originally, I was going for black, but changed my mind and fell for the detailing on the red pair. We specifically set aside part of our wedding budget for these kick ass boots!
I've got really muscular calves (I run, cross country, too) and was concerned that they wouldn't zip, but they actually fit my calves perfectly, with just enough room for stockings.
The comfort - OH THE COMFORT! I had back surgery about 2 weeks before these arrived at my doorstep, and could actually walk around in them immediately! They are SO comfortable! Dancing, walking, epic shopping trips... these boots are amazingly comfortable for everything.
Babycake gets noticed - that super sexy hourglass heel and gorgeous detailed red leather BEG to get noticed, but look kinda cute under jeans, too. For me, they were bought to be worn underneath a custom made fantasy-style wedding gown from Romantic Threads. The gown was velvet and silk, the boots added my personal "funky style" to our wedding, and look so cute peeking out when dancing. On the weekends, they look amazing with miniskirts, long skirts, dresses.... God, I could wear these shoes everywhere.
Oh sizing - I wear a 10, these are a 10... they fit like a dream. I dunno why people say they run small, because they were perfectly true to size for me.
Now, my only dilemma is which pair to get NEXT!
Oh - and a HUGE shoutout to the kickass customer service I received from the Chicago JF store!

Love these Boots!
These boots were my first Fluevog purchase and I'm very happy. I bought them in brown. I'm a size 8 and found they are true to size. They are so comfortable and so gorgeous! I can't wait to buy another pair :-) Very good quality which seems to be difficult to find these days. :-D

My 3rd pair of Fluevogs, perhaps my fave
I just got these in the mail yesterday. After lusting after these shoes for 3 years, I finally justified buying them for a great reason-my wedding! I wear a 6 1/2 and I got the 7 because there were no more 6 1/2s anywhere in stock--so I figured I'd be swimming in them, but was wrong. They're perfect--which tells me they run small. The calves fit my just fine--I have average shaped calves--neither skinny nor big. I do love these, possibly more than my other 2 Fluevogs.

The Ultimate Sexy Comfort Boots! @>-
I think I was waiting for these to be invented. I had been fantasizing about them in my idle moments. I think they'd been fantasizing about me, too, because the moment I put them on they said "yes yes yes" with every step. Fit like a dream; didn't have to break them in at all.
They have everything I'd been craving in a boot: low but foxy spool heel, rubber sole, buttons, comfy wide toe, broguing. Perfect for office or for-special. I walk to work in them-- and when I come home after a hard day of work, these are the heels I'm HAPPY to put on for a night out. In San Francisco, we highly prize a 3" heel that you can walk down steep hills in.
(Also: Complete strangers love all over these shoes regularly. The lady in Williams-Sonoma sounded like her mind was blown: "Wow! Those must the coolest boots in the world!")

I love Babycake. They were my first boots and they make me feel amazing! I love to have the exactly the same model in white instead of black.

After an Alteration, Amazing!
People seem to be all over the map on the calf size of these, so here's my $.02: I'm an athletic (powerlifting, roller derby, and running), sturdy girl with pretty big calves. My legs are also really short, which means the boots have to zip over a wider portion of my leg than they would on most people. I'd lusted after these boots for years, and my husband got them for me for Christmas figuring I'd have to have them stretched to make them fit right. I put them on and they had the wonderful fit in the foot that Fluevogs always do, but I could get them zipped maybe halfway up. At the top of the zipper, there was a five-inch gap- stretching wasn't gonna cut it. I took them to a local shoemaker who put triangular leather inserts up the backs of them, making them fit PERFECTLY. The turnaround time was about a week and he charged me a little over thirty dollars for it. Now they're perfect. They're beautiful, make me feel beautiful, and look hot with a pencil skirt. These are my second pair of shoes from the Mini family, and I love that F-Sole more than I love a lot of things. Moral of the story: even if you have giant beastly calves like I do but you really want these boots, go ahead and get them! Just plan on an alteration.
