What Size Are You?
- Step on a piece of paper big enough to fit your entire foot.
- Keeping your pen or pencil as straight as possible, trace your entire foot onto the paper.
- Measure your tracing from the top-most point of your toe to the bottom-most point on your heel to get your length measurement.
- Compare the number to the insole measurements in the length measurements chart below.

These boots are amazing! I love them so much, they are beautiful and perfect. The leather is supple, the rainbow stitching is delightful, and they are a joy to wear.
I have always struggled to find shoes outside of kids' sizes that fit me. I generally wear a size 5 because it is the smallest size that most brands offer, and even that is difficult to find sometimes. I bought these because they are offered in a size 4, and they fit PERFECTLY! My toes are not scrunched, and they also don't slide around in the boot. For reference, my feet measure at 21.6 cm and 21.8 cm long, and if they were any longer I would probably size up to a 5, but the size 4s are a perfect fit for me.
The boots have a totally walkable heel (I generally avoid heels but these are comfortable). There is little to no arch support, so I will be purchasing an insert for that once they are fully broken in.
The only other thing to note is that these boots are extremely difficult to get on for the first couple of wears. I bought a cheap shoe horn from the grocery store just so I could get them on to see if they fit, but before I did that I ended up creasing the leather around the heel section so much that they might have been un-returnable at that point. It worked out because they are a perfect fit, but I'd advise those unsure they got the right size to fully inspect the boots before attempting to try them on, and make sure you have a show horn from the beginning. They have been easier to put on each successive time I've worn them, and soon I won't need to use the shoe horn at all, but this is absolutely something purchasers should be aware of. Even on the first wear, once I got my feet fully into them, they were not tight or uncomfortable in any way.
I fully recommend these boots and am looking forward to wearing them until the soles give up, then getting them re-soled and wearing them again!
Been eyeing them for a while and finally treated
Myself. They feel sooooo well made. Love. I got a 9 and usually wear a nine, they take effort to slide into but assuredly will soften as I wear them. No complaints! Super impressed!
These boots are so dang cute but putting them on was a torture. I had to return them.
Hi Tachi, thank you for taking the time to give us feedback! We're so sorry that the fit of Tessie didn't work out for you. We do recommend using a shoe horn if you experience any difficulty getting a shoe on-foot, but we have also passed along your feedback to our production team! Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions! xo
I'm in love with my new Tessie's! I wear a size 9 in CS footwear and these fit great in a size 9, per usual. I wore them to town doing a bunch of errands before I did a pop-up market where I was on my feet for hours and not only were they comfortable... they also made me feel like a badass!
Well made and totally worth the purchase!
I have these boots in red, and they’re just perfect. I’m a 7.5, and sized up to an 8. They’re a little roomy but nothing a thick sock can’t fix!
I have gotten compliments on these every time I’ve worn them. They’re a statement boot, but are more versatile than I expected. 10/10, would buy more in all the colors!
