Stunning boots, exactly as pictured. I believe they run about a 1/2 size big. I normally wear a size 6-6.5 for open toe shoes and a size 7 for closed toe shoes. I got these in a size 7 and even with socks I still had some wiggle room, so I stuck in a foot petals pad for the sole. The good thing is that with the extra room, I didn't have to break these in and even though the ankle part is a little loose, the leather is soft enough that I didn't end up with blisters or anything, so there was no breaking in period.
