Gorgeous AND functional
These fantastic boots have totally lived up to my expectations, which were very high after reading all the glowing customer reviews on this site. Also, I've been walking around in Operettas all year, so the bar for cuteness and comfort was pretty high anyway. I've only had the Babycakes for a week, and despite the fact that it's flip-flop weather, I have not taken them off my feet. They are beautiful, stylish and so comfortable it's hard to believe they have three-inch heels. I walked several kilometers along the seawall yesterday with no problem at all. The f-soles seem really sturdy, too, although I haven't had them long enough to comment on how well they hold up. As to sizing: I found they run true to size, or even a little bigger. They have a nice roomy toe box. I'm normally a six, and I could probably have taken a half size smaller in this boot, except it doesn't exist. The calf sizing is perfect on my smallish legs. The verdict: Babycakes are worth the money. I absolutely recommend them.

These boots are just the cutest most comfy boots ever. I really can't say enough about the staff at the Toronto store, most employees in retail will tell you things look fantastic on you just to get the sale, not here, they are honest, I really appreciate that and would recommend this store to anyone looking for great well made shoes that are stylish and unique. Oh , I forgot to mention the BEST part, they sent the boots out to have them stretched to fit my not so skinny legs, and now they are PERFECT. :-O :-O

I just got these a few weeks ago and it was fairly love-at-first-sight, but they started coming apart at the seam near the heel and now I should take them back. I love these boots very much but it just isn't going to work between us.

Hi Risi, Yes if the stitching is coming undone, please contact the store you purchased them from, and they will take great care if you. :)

New York item!
I've never been to New York but my Babycakes have. When I ordered them almost two years ago that's the store that had my size, finally!!! They make my toothpick legs look absolutely astounding!!!

These boots are incredible! I was a little wary spending so much on a pair of shoes that I was having mailordered, but they fit beautifully, and they are honestly the most comfortable shoes, heels or flats, that I have worn in years. I am SO impressed, and so, so, so going to end up with more Fluevogs, now. Just... WOW.

a real class act!
These were my xmas gift to myself this year and wear them all the time! Note: they do relax a half size (or at least they did for my size 9 foot). I suspect it's because of the soft leather type. I must add that I work in a warehouse and have been able to put in a full day @work wearing these on more than one occasion without experiencing discomfort of any kind.

kid leather gloves
You know that Kate Chopin short story where the harried mother goes to buy necessaries for her children...but instead treats herself to a pair of silk stocking and an incredibly soft and supple pair of kid-leather boots (and then has tea and cake by herself at a cafe--f*** the kids--"The Silk Stockings" I think it's called)? These are those boots. The leather is silky and supple. I'm a 10 and at first wondered if I should have a 10 1/2, but the shoes molded to my feet w/o any discomfort, and I went dancing the first time I wore them. RE: Heel. Yes, they are more comfortable than the average heel...very balanced and sturdy. Are they as comfortable as flats? NO. But they are way hotter.

I wish I could marry them. Theyre some of the only shoes I can wear with my plantars fasciitis. And theyre SO hot and sexy and supple. I build whole outfits around them. :-D

Trust the girls....
Having 'drooled' over these Babies for 3 years on the internet, on a trip to Montreal last summer I finally got the chance to try them on at long, long last. Having British legs (wide calves!) I was very nervous that such a gorgeous boot at a higher than average price Must fit perfectly.. I was elated when I tried them on and true to many posts I had read, the leather stretched and I could zip them all the way. Quite simply the best $500 bucks ever spent and I can tell will last a long time to come. Such Fantastic style, fit and killer but comfortable heels.. even though I live in a hot country and don't get to wear them as often as deserved they will not leave my feet when flip flops are not a practical alternative. ?:-)
