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

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.

The Babycakes in black are my third Fluevog purchase and a welcome addition to my footwear wardrobe. I wear a 9.5 and these boots fit perfectly in that size. The leather is so supple and I love the detailing. I was not able to zip the right boot up fully at first (apparently my right calf is a little beefier than the left) but I wore the boots around the house for an hour and it zipped right up. I'm now convinced I need these in brown -- and maybe red, too.

I love these boots! However, I did notice that they run a bit small length-wise. I had to order a half size bigger than I usually wear in Fluevogs.

Feets Don't Fail Me Now
Bought these in black, when they first came out, back in 2006. They've walked hundreds of miles with me across several continents, been re-soled, re-zippered, re-heeled, polished, buffed, waterproofed, gone riding many times on my motorcycle (and no, the heels don't get caught on my footpegs, they're perfect!), sloshed through puddles and mud and been to foncy parties too. They've looked good under boot-cut pants and good over tights and skirts, good with dresses and in the office and at shows and good playing billiards. My only regret is not also purchasing them in the three-tone green :)

A note on calf circumference
On one woman they're like galoshes, on the next they can't be zipped up....oh dear. I received these wonderful boots as a birthday gift last summer, and they have become a wardrobe staple, so I feel that I should say something in their defense. I have pretty average calves -- maybe a touch on the slim side, certainly not matchsticks -- and they fit just right on me. They make my legs look longer and slimmer than they actually are, too. But for those who find them too tight to zip up: from what I understand, they can be stretched A LOT. The leather's really soft.

Fell In Love, then got my heart broken
I love, love these boots. My biggest mistake was not looking at the calf size. I really wish that Fluevog would have different sizes in the calf. Not everyone has skinny, skinny legs. I am an average size person and could not zip up these boots. Was so sad to have to return them.

Skinny Calves Beware!
Like many other boots, these sadly did not fit my skinny calves. They ended up looking like galoshes which did a disservice to both my leg and the boot. Good thing I tried them on before buying! I will just have to admire these gorgeous boots from afar and on others. Too bad for me.
