I know you have seen several brands with their own version of rhinestone boots but I can promise you that none compare in comfort to Corkys Glitzy Rhinestone Boots. The ONLY downside to theses boots is they do NOT fit wide calves. There is a good chance this will be resolved in the fall 23′ release but for now we can only offer the Shine Bright short boot as an alternative. If you are a half size I strongly suggest rounding down unless you have a wide foot. This boot is very easy to slide into with and without socks. EVA foam insole.
