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

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.

My husband bought these for me last Fall when I was looking for the perfect pair of Victorian-esque boots. They are the most comfortable boots I own, as well as having a very stable heel. I receive compliments every time I wear them. Someone even slowed down on a busy street just to lean out the window and tell me how awesome my boots were!

Sweet sweet Babycakes!
From the moment I saw these on the website, I KNEW they had to be mine. Shortly thereafter, they were. They are every bit as wonderful as I thought they would be...and then some! The leather is so soft and supple and they are an awesome, perfect fit! I just ordered a different pair of boots today! Thanks JF, for helping me find a way to spend my money! :-D

I lost my Fluevog virginity to these boots. And it was everything I thought it would be. And more. Two years and 9 more pairs later, John and I are still going strong. These boots get the most attention. They never fail to elicit an inquiry by men and women alike. It goes without saying they are comfortable. You can dance in these all night, too.

Yummy Baby Cakes
Glorious, glorious Babycakes! I hemmed over these for months because of the cost, but they are worth every penny... they are so sexy, and comfortable and just plain yummy.I am still playing around with finding the perfect arch support inserts (I have high arches) and wish they were a tiny bit longer in the toe, but other than that, I am extremely please. And of course my husbands’ new nickname for me is babycakes! I also wanted to thank Laura in NYC for all her help—the whole Fluevog crew is wonderful... I am now a dedicated Fluevogian..
