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

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. ?:-)

i love these boots!! i was so excited when i bought them. they are soo comfortable, i can run in them and i even wore them when i was pregnant! that is, until my ankles swelled up at the very end... unfortunatly i have to get a new pair- had a house fire and lost my beautiful shoes...

I heart these boots. Snatched up in a size 9, they fit perfectly the first two wears and stretched about another quarter to half size. I wasn't expecting that though the nice girls at Fluevog advised it was gonna happen. I work in a warehouse, climbing up ladders and stompin' around with the boys, and find these boots can put in a hard days' work alongside my Bills and Angels. These are the only "heels" I have-and I adore them.

Babycakes, how I love thee...
So, I wanted these boots for almost a year before I bought them. I was concerned that the boots would not accommodate my womanly curves. After reading some of the other reviewers who were able to stretch the boot to fit their calves, I snapped up a pair (I bought a full size larger than normal). When I pulled those beauties out of the box, I was able to get the zip up 3/4 of the way. After about 20 minutes, that zip went all the way up! No need to go and see a cobbler, YAY!! The boot is incredibly comfortable, the leather is so soft and these are worth every single penny! So don't hesitate, just buy! @>-

Worth every penny
I've never spent as much on a single pair of shoes as I spent last weekend on my Babycakes. I knew I wanted them the minute I spotted them on line - but I also knew that, at that price, I'd better try them on first. So I waited for a visit to Seattle and sweet-talked my partner into venturing down to Pine Street. Smart move - I wear size 8 in most shoes, an 8.5 works better for me in these.
I am in love. In 40+ years of wearing (and then pretty much not wearing) heels, I've never met a pair that made me feel so well-balanced and *grounded.* Nothing about them hurts. To the contrary - my footing is better in these than in some flats. To get all that in a package that comes wrapped in beautiful craftsmanship and hot, hot style - I'm dazzled. And every woman in my office has done a "where did you get THOSE???" double-take today.

Great for Dancing!
I bought these Vogs for touring as a bellydancer. These boots have been easy to dance in and are stylish. My only complaint: I feel that the leather is too thin and the soles are too soft. These boots are already wearing out after 5 days of use. There are deep creases in the leather around the ankles. The toes(front of the boots) are caving in! For the price, I'd hoped for more durable, better constructed boots. (:-|
for heaven sake aren't I your babycake?
I am in love. I am a masochist. I bought this shoe a half size to small (11.5) and I knew that because of the soft leather that I could get it a little wet and it would mold to my foot. Let me tell you I rock these shoes comfortably and fashionably all through the dirty LA streets and the tough SF hills. Even though I am 6'4" in these heels, people stop me to talk about my shoes, not how tall I am.

My Sweet Babycake
I'm in boot heaven!!!
I tried these on a couple of times hoping my calves had shrunk and they could fit, but they never did. I left the store thinking no way they could stretch them that much -- the 2nd time they convinced me to try and oh man, I'm so thankful to the Toronto store that they did. Ladies, they stretch -- just get them already!! Jen

I have a pair of Black ones and a pair of cranberry red and pink special combo colors from Eveline's in Lockport. Solid funky heel and Victorian style make this comfortable boot a conversation piece. Always compliments every where I go. One of my favourite Fluevogs.
