I finally took the plunge and got myself a pair of Isabel Marant Dicker Boots.
They are boot classics and look aaaamazing!
This style has been around since 2010… and many other brands have since copied the style, so it’s kind of cool (ok, very cool) to have the OG pair.
I have been eyeing and drooling after a pair for years; stalking eBay for a black or tan suede pair, but none came up.
Anyway, Shopbop recently announced that they were going to stock Isabel Marant (leather goods) and Isabel Marant Etoile (clothes)… so I took that opportunity to splurge using a birthday discount, courtesy of Shopbop.
Sizing: They are true to size.
I wear EU 36 / AU 6 / UK 3 for all my shoes and boots and these fit me perfectly.
They are super soft and super comfortable.
When I wear thin, cotton ankle socks, they lift up a bit when I walk. So I wear semi-thick, cotton socks and they fit great.
I’m hoping to wear them into Spring and maybe early summer, so I might still wear thin, ankle socks and hopefully my feet will expand a bit? I’m sure I’ll be fine.
Another thing to note: I have narrow/small feet. But I can imagine if I had a wider-than-average foot, these boots would feel a bit tight across the toes.
The suede leather is lovely, supple and soft.
It is lined with a leather inner sock, so it keeps its structure… but the boot still buckles when you move, which is a nice thing!
(My Acne Suede Jensen Booties are very stiff in comparison.)
I did give the boots a double spray of rain and stain repellent (specially designed for waterproofing suede) too.
I the zip is chunky, but kind of hidden.
The wood block heel is a good everyday height at 60mm.
They are very easy to walk in, and I can spend all day in them.
I just love their cool, casual, raw, chunky look, with a boho and cowboy vibe.
I plan to wear them with dresses, ripped jeans, cropped jeans and denim shorts!
Haha I don’t have a bad thing to say about these boots.
I’ll let you know how I feel about them in 5 years time.
I bet I still love them :)
