Soda is a fashion shoe brand based in California. Soda offers a wide array of styles including heels, wedges, flats, shoes, sandals and boots.
I wear these boots all around Manhattan and they are always comfortable and look great with just about everything. I am right in bwtweem a 8.5 and a 9 so getting the 9 was perfect. It allows for thicker socks in the chilly weather or thinner socks. Highly recommend them! They are a lloud, but its a good 'power click' when walking.
In a boot like this one, I usually either buy a 9W, or a 9.5M. Since they didn't have a 9.5, or a W option, I just ordered the 9M and hoped for the best. Surprisingly comfortable, not too narrow or "squished" feeling. Not at all disappointed in the fit of the boot. My only minor complaint would be that the little flap on the inside of the zipper (you know, the one to prevent pinching, or snagging) feels like paper. Other boots in this price range at least have a cloth-type or faux leather strip here, but the material they used in these booties is very thin and brittle/fragile feeling, compared to the rest of the material used. Time will tell if it holds up or not, but even if it doesn't, it's not the end of the world, just a bit of a bummer.
I'm not really into high heels but I decided to give this boots a try and I'm very glad I did. They're very comfortable even if you are not used to wear high heels. I'm a size 9 but I ordered a 10 so I can wear with tick socks, I also have wide feet and they are tight are all. I'm so thankful they rushed my order (without paying any shipping fees it was free) I placed the order on Dec 16th and I received them by Dec 20th. Now I'm ready for Christmas.
Shoes appeared to have been used and worn. Soles had dirt on bottom. I have ordered Soda brand before and they have always been great quality. These were just thrown in box without no paper wrapped around shoes to prevent scarring of material. This pair was just thrown in box. I am very disappointed in the condition of these shoes. Normally i love this brand and they are very comfortable. I am unable to return them do to the rural area I live. So I will have to keep them. But I will think twice before ordering this brand again.
These booties are great quality and don't look cheap. They're substantial for walking around. I feel like an *ss kicker in them. They're perfectly comfortable, except if you're walking around all day, then my arches get sore. I have to roll up my pants a couple times, which I like anyway, but should fit ankle pants fine.
For the price, you can’t beat it. During the winter time, I practically live in booties/ankle boots. I work in a professional environment but have to be on my feet and walk around quite a bit - I manage a large 384 unit apartment community so you can imagine weekly property walks in heels! Are they the best made? No but again, I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on shoes I knew I’d probably wear out after a season or two anyway. The heels do scuff up easily but again, that’s to be expected for what I paid. If you’re looking for a pair of black booties that are expected to hold up well, these are not the ones but if you’re looking for something to get you through a season or two, go ahead and invest.
I am ordering these for a second time, that's how much I love them. They are cute, comfortable and fit true to size.
(Just FYI husband and wife share account, so wife bought these haha!)
