I so wanted these boots to fit me. I bought one whole size up and the fit seemed about right length-wise, but the room for the toes is very tight (height-wise). It was crushing my big toenail from the top down. I have normal size toes, but I am sensitive to outright pain, and these shoes would be unwearable for me. The only thing I could do is put leather conditioner on them and stretch the toebox area, but as these were expensive, I don't want to take the chance as it might not work. Bummed about these not fitting.

I ordered a 6 1/2. Could not get them on my feet so I ordered a 7. Too big. I decided to keep the 6 1/2 and stretch them out. I put a large marble at the toe and I shoe stretcher. They were perfect. I love these boots. They will last forever. You do have to be careful not to scratch them with your fingernails when putting them on. I can walk all day in these boots. Just give them time to stretch out. It was totally worth it.

Good quality, great design and style. I have not worn boots in years so it took a while to break-in, but happy with the purchase. Ordered at 6pm and delivered in the afternoon the next day!

You have no idea how much I wanted to keep these boots; they have that worn, hand-crafted feel to them... soft, supple but very high-quality leather. I have long legs and these are some of the only non-over-the-knee boots I've tried on that actually come up to right below my knee. I also ordered a 1/2 size down, which was perfect. Also agree with someone else who suggested the black is really more of a dark brown. My issue was the sort of bump or bulge right below where the lacing ends in the back. I do have pretty skinny calves and they did not even begin to fill out the calf area of the boot, so from the side, that bulge was still there and it just didn't look right to be. If you had fuller-calved and could fill that part out, I think these boots would look incredible on. Alas.

I loved the style but platform sole has no give whatsoever which made walking difficult. I was very sorry to have to return them!

Got this shoe in the tan color and wore it until it, literally, fell apart. Super comfortable, easy to dress up or dress down. Stood up well to daily wear in a variety of conditions. The soles are a little slippery (not much tread) but this is easily remedied. Highly recommend these!

Wore them inside for a few hours and they felt fine. After wearing them for a few days, the right shoe really hurts my big toe. The left shoe is comfortable. The right shoe may be too narrow in the toe area. Can't wear them anymore. I like the style, but I guess I have to throw them away now. I hate wasting money like that.

Beautifully constructed very high quality shoes. Unfortunately, they are very narrow and in a size 9 they resemble clown shoes. Regretted having to send them back.

The most comfortable boot I have ever owned. I love the rustic black color, it goes with everything. The sole is slippery at first, but just walk around on pavement & that is eliminated. The toe of the boot does not flip up like the image shows. The boot is true to size and I can wear any type of sock.

These boots have definitely become my new favorite. Very comfy and stylish. True fit. I normally wear a 6 1/2 and that's what I bought. Fits great. I can see a little what other reviewers said about your heel moving but the right sock fixed that. Besides it was so minimal I probably would never have noticed it if not for the previous reviews. Great buy!

I've had these boots for two weeks now and the fit is still a little snug, even with a thin dress sock. It may be a little on the narrow side as well considering I have to open the top up wide to get my foot in. The color on mine matched the light brown of the images, so perhaps they've corrected that issue. Though it is taking on a two-tone appearance as the toe cap is staying the same color but the leather where my foot creases is lightening up as it breaks in. The sole seems a little soft and I'm interested to see how it holds up over time. Overall I'm pleased with the quality of the leather and construction, but was disappointed that they don't include the cool lace eyelet on the inside of the shoe as well. I feel like that's where I'd rather it be since the only time people are going to see the eyelets is when you have your legs crossed and they see the inner portion of the shoe.

Awesome boot! Extremely comfortable, although I have a very narrow foot so they fit me GREAT! If you have a wider foot the boot might not fit well or be too comfortable. Overall the style is FABULOUS and HOT! LOVE them. Bed Stu makes great shoes and styles.. I am an urban city chick so fits my style and get tons of compliments...

These are so close to amazing. Great quality, super soft stretchy leather, hand-made feel, and simple mary jane style that I'm always looking for. Two problems resulting in a return on these: One is that the "handmade" thing went a little too far and one shoe had a more worn-in look than the other, to the point where they just looked uneven. I ordered another pair, and this pair had the same issue, though a little less noticeable, and I would have kept them if not for issue two -- the fit is just not quite right. Another reviewer remarked that these were perfect on her narrow feet. I have wide feet...and have to agree with her! These had a little extra room past my big toe, but were a little too snug around the toe itself, so my big toe kind of pressed against the leather and my feet didn't have room to spread out. Also the flat leather outsole makes these a little impractical for every day urban wear...so sad! Back they go. Still -- if you have narrow feet and are okay with the zero-traction thing, these are a beautiful and well-made pair of shoes, try them.

Great boot! I am also a Frye girl and when I received my Bed Stu Manchester II boots from UPS I was very pleased. I also took advice from some of the other buyers that they tend to run big. I am a size 10 and ordered a size 9 which fit perfect. They run a little narrow, but leather stretches with time so I am not too concerned. They have their own unique look and style which I love and the quality is very good. I am also 5' 11" so they really compliment my long legs. I have not taken them for a test walk yet, and hope they will be comfortable enough to wear an entire afternoon or even day....we'll see. I also must say that the Zappos rep I spoke with by phone was very helpful and granted me a coupon from a past coupon I had deleted from my inbox by mistake. She went the extra mile to ensure the fullest customer satisfaction. Thank you Zappos!

Very nice looking and practical purse, but had to return it due to a very strong tannery smell that just wouldn't go away even after having it out of the box for several days.

This is a great new brand. The shoes look great, similar style to To Boot New York but the price. They fit perfectly and were comfortable first day wearing them. I just ordered another pair in a different style (the shoe version of these boots) and they are just as good.

These are gorgeous boots! I love them! I wish they came with a little more height in the heel, but these are gorgeous show stopper boots!

Terrible quality. I ordered three pairs of these boots, and every pair had exactly the same problem - after putting them on and bending the foot, the zipper split wide open. Obviously returned all three pairs. Hard to believe the zipper quality could be so consistently bad.

These boots are amazing. The second they come out of the box you can tell the quality and know immediately why they are priced as such. This makes pair #2 of Bed Stus for me. The height of the boots hits me maybe an inch above the bottom of my calf. The zippers make it easy to get your foot in. The foot of the boot is long in the front but not too narrow. I am normally a size 10 and ordered a 11. The 11 is a little big but if I wear a thick sock it will be perfect. The distressing is just right - not tacky or overdone. Although the boots are black, the distressing allows you to wear them with any color because the Browns and undertones show thru. Easily you can wear them with casual leggings and a sweatshirt or dress them up. Very comfortable without wear time. I am an obsessive boot researcher before I buy and these are perfect! I looked at almost 100 pairs before getting these. They look, feel and even smell expensive! Buy these! You will not be disappointed.

These are great shoes, but there is an issue with the way they are labeled. Other reviews have said they run small, but I believe this is due to in inconsistency with the label. I bought a 7 1/2. The box says US 7.5, UK 5.0, EUR 37.5, CM 24.5. The label inside the shoe says US 7.5, UK 4.5, EUR 37.5, CM 24.5. There really should not be a difference between what is on the box, and what is on the shoe. I have brought this to the attention of Zappos. I am a perfect UK 5, and I feel that the UK 4.5 is the correct size, not the UK 5.0, which is on the box. They may stretch, because they are very nice leather. The look is super,with distressd leather. I haven't yet decided if I will keep them, but they are so cute! If you decide to get them, and you can relate to UK sizes, I would say what is on Zappos for a 7.5, is UK 4.5, but for these shoes only, because a UK 5 generally translates into US 7.5. I actually feel a UK 5 is a little between a US 7 and 7.5, but closer to a 7.5. I have many pairs of shoes I have bought in London over the years, and a UK 5 generally translates into EUR 38.

First, the shoe is quite long; there is an extra two inches of empty space beyond your toe. So, it can look a bit too long, and even disproportionate to your height, if you aren't very tall like me. The width on my right shoe is a bit tighter, so it can get a bit uncomfortable, but hopefully the leather will stretch. Overall, the shoes are a bit like clown shoes.
