An honest review of the Sarah Flint Perfect Riding boot

Boot trends may come and go—ankle versus midcalf, square-toe versus pointy—but a classic knee-high riding boot is always in style. I've been looking for the perfect pair for several years now, and what's that they say about the very thing you've been looking for being right under your nose? I've been working with Sarah Flint as an ambassador for awhile now, and when it came time to pick out a new pair, I saw her Perfect Riding Boot and it was like my prayers had been answered. It's a tall order to call something "perfect" in the official name, but as far as these boots go, it's pretty accurate—spoiler alert, they are indeed perfect. I was given this pair as a gift for referring so many new customers to Sarah Flint, but the following review is my honest and unfiltered opinion. 

 


A little about Sarah Flint

Sarah Flint shoes are direct-to-consumer, meaning you won't find them in department stores, and this is a good thing, because it keeps prices much lower than shoes of comparable quality. That said, they are luxury shoes, and incredibly well-made ones at that—they're manufactured in family-owned artisanal factories in Italy, known for their quality and craftsmanship. Because Sarah Flint shoes aren't heavily marketed or distributed, they rely on ambassadors like me to spread the word; I've done so much spreading that they actually sent me this pair for free. (If you would also like to spread the gospel of Sarah Flint shoes as an ambassador, I'd be happy to refer you!) 





How they fit

I ordered a size 39, which is what I usually wear in European shoes; I'm almost always an 8.5 in U.S. sizing. I have a bunion on my right foot which can often make shoes feel tight across the instep, and while my right boot was a little snug at first, within a few hours, the leather had relaxed and my feet were completely comfortable. (Like all shoes, I broke these in for a few hours around the house before wearing them out.) I've found a trouser sock or thin knit sock is most comfortable with this style; if you want to wear a thicker sock, I'd recommend going up half a size. I have somewhat narrow calves, so I usually don't have trouble with knee-high boots fitting me well (if anything, they're too big and slouchy), but these do have both an elastic gusset on the inside, as well as a zipper that runs half the length of the shaft, which makes getting them on and off that much easier. The heel is 30mm (about an inch) which is totally comfortable and walkable—I've worn these on several occasions for hours at a time and my feet were completely comfortable. They don't rub or give me any blisters whatsoever. 





My honest review

These are freaking gorgeous boots. The color is a beautiful, rich chestnut. The leather is supple but structured. The details are well-thought-out, from the placement of the zipper to the skinny buckle at the ankle. Even the heel is the right height—high enough to give you a little boost but not too high as to be uncomfortable. I can wear these all day with no problems whatsoever in terms of comfort. Plus, they're so classic, they go with everything. I was hesitant at first to give them such a rave review because they are on the pricey side, but, coincidentally, they're actually on sale at the moment, and when you pair them with my code SARAHFLINT-BACHERYLSHOPS for $60 off your first purchase, that definitely lessens the blow (every little bit helps, right?). They're still an investment for sure, but I think they're worth it. I plan on wearing mine for years to come, so expect to see them here again (and again)!

I love the rich caramel color! These are truly beautiful boots! Leather and suede are so worth the extra money because of how they form to your feet, especially if you have wide feet or issues!

Its a reality of this modern era that fashion is going to be moderated by people who want to purchase online from Amazon Wholesalers in USA but sometimes they do not satisfy themselves.
