Super comfy! Not supportive in the way a good orthopedic shoe would be. They feel life soft flexible loafers. But I think a boot would have more structure.

I bought them in the olive. They might not be stylish but I need boots to get me through the winter and I cant afford all the nice vegan ones. Hopefully i like them when they come in!

Cri de Coeur sent me the wrong booties, so I had to send them back and am now waiting (again! the torture!) for mine. But this time I have no tracking number to check obsessively.

I still kind of want a pair of knockoff vegan Uggs (cheap, but warm and waterproof, if that exists), SOLELY for taking the dog out in the winter. Lacing up my boots is the longest part of the dog bathroom break process.

Ooh, I wanted fake Uggs for the same reason. Perfect for morning dog walks!

I had the same thought this morning. I got an email from Neuaura and they have the ones with the little wooden buttons. Not that I have $150 lying around, lol. Plus I don't have a dog.

I debated the older version from Neuaura (the Robin, I think) every year that they've had them, but, $150! I'm considering them "outdoor slippers" so I really couldn't justify that.

I think I'll check out the Payless ones in person. In the past the cheapy versions I've seen all had soles that felt like cardboard, but these have gotten good reviews, so I'm hopeful! Thanks for pointing them out, Gracia.

Surely! I've never owned any fake uggs, so I can't say if they are good or not. But my sis in law has major issues with her arches now because of wearing real uggs so much. She developed planters fasciitis because they have no arch support and aren't flexible soles. Her doctor told her to stop wearing them! So make sure they flex and have some support before wasting money on them.

Will do! That's funny, I would've thought the sole on real Uggs would be better.

I just wear flip-flops and cheap ballet flats with no arch support all year, so I'm probably already screwed.

I think there is something bad about not having any flex. I tried her uggs on one time and they were so stiff and uncomfortable to me. I don't know how people wear those things. There's no give at all.

i want these in a ridiculous way. i mean, they're $400, so there's no way for me to want them that wouldn't be ridiculous, but still. sometimes i wish fluevog had never started a vegan line.

My favorite shoes EVER were a pair of black velvet Fluevog shoes. I wish they weren't $400!

I have a serious craving for some red shoes.

And just look at these cute sneakers by Olanthe. Aren't they absolutely adorable?

I've been eyeing these forever, finally just caved and bought em. I have larger calves, so hopefully they'll fit.

Creep! I got those in the cognac color last year and I LOVE them. The sole is a little slippery, so I recommend scratching it up a bit for some traction. They look super cute.

I have really big calves, and they DO fit (questionable whether or not I could get knee socks or leggings under them, but I'd guess probably). The zipper is finicky, so I have to sit down and hold the zipper at the right angle in order to get the teeth to grab--it's weird, the zipper will go but the teeth won't mesh unless I make sure it's positioned correctly--but once they're on, they're totally fine and I have plenty of wiggle room to be comfortable in them. They aren't constricting, they look really good, and although they don't have a lot of cushion or support in the sole, I still feel like they're really comfortable and my feet don't get sore or tired (and I walk a lot!).

I have a pair of Melissa shoes that I had in a bin with some other shoes. I took them out today and upon first look they look scuffed by some of the shoes they would've been rubbing up against, but actually it's more like stained? Like the scuffs went right into the plastic. I tried baking soda, toothpaste, a magic eraser and even nail polish to get it off and nothing is working. Anyone have any insight? They're so pretty but they have these brown scuff marks all over them now :(

Thanks for the heads up! They BARELY zip over my calves. I can wear boot socks or thin skinny jeans and still get them zipped, but they're about as snug as they could be without being uncomfortable. I read about the slick soles, but I didn't seem to have a problem. Danced on smooth concrete floors the first time I wore them and didn't bust my asparagus.

I'm peeved (as much as you can be about shoes). Cri de Coeur sent me the wrong boots TWICE, and now the ones I ordered are unavailable. They apparently sent out my pair to someone else by mistake (who are you, person? send them back!), so now I'm out of luck. It has been two months since I ordered! And now I get no boots, which is a bummer. My feet are cold. And they aren't doing anything to make up for it- not that they're obligated to, but it's nice when companies try.

I haven't had much luck finding short black vegan boots. These are adorable, but too pricey, and also sold out in my size. Gah!

Ugh! That's such a bummer, Amy! You'd think they'd at least give you a coupon or something. Those boots are gorgeous. I wish they had your size.

Anyone have luck with the boots? I need flat (freal flat) ankle boots that are comfortable and supportive. I should be wearing orthopaedic shoes but hell no. Any advice appreciated. The above look cute but I need flat and safe for my poor feets. These are the best I've found so far but they're not that cute http://www.payless.com/store/product/de ... ame=Womens

I got these and really like them: http://www.zara.com/us/en/trf/shoes/boots/trf-flat-boot-c503001p1296034.html I can wear them all day without getting too bothered by pain in my big toe/bunion area. I don't think they'd work well if you have skinny calves though as they're a generous cut.
