The Bartoli fits true, but people with longer toes may want to go up half a size, and the lace-up is great for those of us with a high instep!

Bought these today
I went into the Toronto store today wanting to buy a pair of Libby Smith boots, but ended up smitten with these Bartoli boots instead. The heel is a comfortable height and they look adorable on me. They even fit my orthotics, which I hate having to wear, but I might as well give in and do it when I can do it in such great boots!

Sophisticated and sexy. These boots fit true to size and highly recommended to anyone who needs a wider toe-box. This is my third pair from the operetta family, 14th in the collection. The whole line is amazing if you are looking for a comfortable shoe and you need to be on your feet all day. Heels are replaceable.

OMG..I received my boots yesterday and have them on today. May I say these have to be the most awesome boots I have ever owned and I have alot of shoes. My co-workers were freaking out today when they saw them. All I can say is thank you Mr. Fluevog for making such an exceptional pair of boots.

Heels I Can Wear
On a lark I tried a wine pair of these on in the Gastown store because I was already buying the wine-coloured Operetta tote and I thought it would be cool to have matching shoes. Once I got them on, I could not believe that wearing heels could be so comfortable and solid. Several years ago I suffered an ankle injury that prevents me from wearing any shoes other than lace-up flats (or so I thought). Lucky for me, the sides of the Bartoli support my ankle sufficiently, the laces hold my foot in place, and the Operetta heel is low enough, wide enough and cushioned enough to make wearing these gorgeous shoes a delight.
I love that it feels like these shoes were made for me personally. I am totally smitten with my two purchases. Thanks, John!

I just got my Wine coloured Bartoli Boots from Gastown. They are everything I wanted: style, colour, comfort and very unique, of course. I get so many compliments or whispers "Look at her boots" so I stop & tell them all about the wonderful John Fluevog shoes.

the only thing that sucks about these boots is that the pair that i own the tongue on the right shoe feels thicker than the one on the left like its been together differently and it presses up against the bone on my foot and rubs it so it hurts. so, i need to slide the tongue all the way to right which makes the boot have this weird indentation and wrecks the leather :-( but at least it doesnt hurt that way. other than that the boots are awesome.

The whole Operetta line is great. I'm not a heel person but these boots are so comfy. They're functional and practical but girlie and unique enough to make anyone's feet feel pretty! @>-

I was originally after the Giulias - but I like these even more. Extremely comfortable, funky, unique styling - the Trifecta!

Super comfy super cute
I was after the Malibran's initially but they ran out of my size and since Autumn was here I decided to go for these instead. The heel is super soft to walk on and I love the Wine and Red colour combination. Like the comment before about the heels rubbing on the other side, the scuff marks indeed do just rub off.
