Walking Cradle where have you been all my life? Recently, after trying to buy knee high boots in the traditional stores, I gave up! In the time since I bought my last boots the sizing around the calf has drastically changed. I have skinny legs and every boot I tried on was at least 4 or 5 inches too big around the calf. A shoe salesman told me there wasn't anything available in the style I wanted and that the total trend was 'booties'.....yes, I'm old fashioned but these things are not flattering and yes, I have senior foot issues that a well-fitting boot helps. Although I had given up, I went on line and after searching found what I was looking for....too good to be true? They arrived yesterday and I held my breath as I opened the box....I wanted to Love these boots and it was love at first sight. They are beautiful, flattering, so very comfortable and look magnificent even on my old legs. I've had them one day and am truly grateful for Walking Cradle and this design. I wore them around the house for several hours....no break in required! Happy Dance. Not saying a comfortable boot can take the worlds troubles away...but just for now it has. Highly recommend....first time customer.
