How do they fit? Here is a description from Karen in our team. She tried them on just for you:

"The boot I'm trying today is called Catia. It's an ankle boot with a low heel, only about two centimetre heal, so nice, easy to wear sort of boot. You could wear this every day.
It's full leather, leather in and then a leather outer. I'm trying a size 41, which is my standard size. So I think you'd find if you're a fairly standard sort of a size, you normally go for the same size, you'll find the fit on this fairly easy as well.
It has a rounded, pointy toe, but it's more rounded than pointed. It's got a little bit of shape at the front there, which does tend to bring it in a little in the width, not to say that it's narrow. It's just not as roomy as some, because it does have that tapering there at the front.
It has some really nice stitching detail, sort of at the top of the sole, which just gives it a little bit of interest.
It has a inside zip up. My ankles obviously get in and out of it quite well, which also helps too if you have a higher instep, it's quite easy to get in and out of there as well.
I'm trying on the tan and black combination, which is a full all leather combo. The other color is a black one, which is black suede and black patent leather combination.
So both nice wearable leathers and quite soft on the foot as well, the leather is quite soft on your foot as well. So nice boot." Karen

Great when you are unsure about the fit of a style.
A little time spent loving your shoes will mean they will last longer and look better, giving you better wear out of every purchase.
* It is a great idea to store your shoes in their boxes and use the tissue (packaging) that comes with them to re-wrap them. We call this "putting the baby to bed" and it keeps them happy! And protected. You'll protect them from getting marked in your cupboard, getting dusty and getting squashed out of shape. Some shoes and hand bags come with soft, cloth storage bags and they are very useful for protecting stored items.
* We also suggest that you use a product called Water & Stain which is a waterproofer spray. This can be used on all smooth leathers, suede, nubuck and satin/canvas/fabrics. It helps to repel water, dirt, grease and grime. It also protects against moisture. It should be applied to a clean item by holding the Waterproofer about 20cm away from the shoe and giving the whole shoe a light spray. Leave the item to dry and then repeat the process. This product will allow the leather to breathe and not discolour and is great for colour fasting bright colours.
* Leather conditioner is another great product that will significantly prolong the life of your leather shoes and bags. This product cleans and conditions your leather as you would your hands. To obtain the best results, we suggest using it in conjunction with the waterproofer, on a regular basis.
