Bed Stu has a way of making shoes that say "rock star" without necessarily saying "death metal." These are my second pair of their shoes. I was not too sure when I first saw this style, but they are super cute when you see them on. Some ankle boots you just can't tell until you wear them, but these are keepers. These boots will dress up or down, and are very comfortable. Platforms also keep the heel height well away from the pain point. If you are on the fence about these, go for it. You will love them.

I ordered these in the natural color exclusive to Sundance Catalog. They are awesome! They are very well made and the leather and workmanship is outstanding. However, they are really short even though they have a very large toe box. Anyway I did end up sending them on their way!

Absolutely the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. The leather is soft and supple, the boot gives good support I am wearing it every day! I have never had so many compliments on a pair of boot.

These are stunning boots! It sounds weird but I loved them from the moment I opened up the box...I have a lot of quality boots in this price range and these are the first that had the intoxicating smell of real full grain leather. The leather is buttery soft and supple. They truly look like they were hand crafted by an artisan. I purchased the tan color and they are a perfect compliment to any everyday wardrobe. The lacing in the back allows you to wear them as a taught tall boot or a slouch boot. I am 6' tall and love the full shaft height - they hit about an inch below my knee. AND, on top of the extreme beauty, they are completely comfortable. My only dilemma now is to decide whether or not I want to splurge and buy them in another color!

Sharp looking boot. Unmatched pair arrived, about 1 to 1-1/2 sizes different. Other reviewers suggested somewhat unmatched pairs arrived to them also.

This bag is a traveling dream! I'm a high school educator and this bag is phenomenal. It holds a ton without looking like I'm moving in everywhere I go. I absolutely love all the pockets for organization, the "oil slick" color is really neat, the material is comfortable and soft, and I've received many compliments on it. This bag definitely has a rugged look to be casual, but is put together enough to use it professionally. I also used this as my carry on/personal item while traveling on planes and it was ideal for my Europe Club trip to Germany, Switzerland, and Italy where we were on the go constantly. I would not hesitate to buy this bag again and plan to be a return customer to this brand for any of my future needs. Zappos had great service as always! I ordered it one evening and it was at my door by 1pm the next day! Awesome!

Love the way these boots look! They are pretty stiff and I'm really hoping they loosen up a bit. The toe box is pretty narrow. If you have wide feet, these probably aren't the right boots for you. I had to exchange for a 1/2 size down for a proper fit. (Normally a 7 to 7.5 but the 6.5 is what I ended up keeping.)

I just LOVE these shoes! I ordered two pairs, one my regular size (8.5) and one a 1/2 a size larger. The 8.5 was snug but the 9 was swimming on me. I tried the 8.5 on one more time feeling frustrated because I just loved the style. This time, I stood up and walked around the house and just like really good soft leather, they started to give. Now, just a few weeks later, they are one of the most comfortable pair of shoes in my closet. Just like another reviewer said, they are slippery at first. I walked around on pavement a bit and now they are just fine. Once you get the laces tied to your liking you never have to tie them again. The shoes go on with ease just using the zippers. Let me just say that if the smell of leather turns you off, you might have a hard time with the smell; it's a natural smell, just quite strong at first. They are very well made; a great balance of feminine, masculine and cool; all in all a great quality shoe! Thanks Zappos, you never disappoint!

Just bought these boots for a week or two and so far I'm completely sold. Very comfy and stylish, including the wrap around laces. I can't run in them, but hey, they're boots after all. The only complaint I might have is there's a slight crease on the right side of the right boot that I can seem to un-crease, but barely noticeable all the same. Overall great buy for the price, similar cap toe boots sell for at least 20 bucks more. Very, very, happy about that.

Sadly, I am returning these boots. They are super cute and I was going to try and make them work. But I realized walking around in the house, blisters and arch pain were soon to ensue. I purchase at least 12-15 new pair of shoes a year (it's an addiction). Brands include Miz Mooz, Calvin Klien, Fossil and Michael Kors. These shoes ran small. My toes jammed into the end (I'm a 7.5). I have no special needs for my feet or arch, but I knew these shoes would create some unfortunate issues. I am terribly sad, though, because they are adorable! I don't write many reviews, but I thought this needed one.

I bought these boots a month ago, took a few miles of walking to break them in. They are awesome boots and i like the finish that seems to get better with every step

I have to start off by saying these boots are amazing. They look great with dresses & leggings/skinny jeans. The leather is on the shaft is soft and you can adjust the width of the shaft slightly by loosening or tightening the draw string on the back of the boot. The draw string also adds a nice embellishment to the back of the boot. There are some limitations as too how much you can adjust the circumference of the shaft. In my opinion the shaft is on the smaller side. That's where you may run into some problems with choosing the right size. The sole part or bottom part of the boot runs large. I would say about a half size unless you intend to wear them with the thickest socks you can find. However if you decide to size down a full size you may run into a problem with the shaft being too small/tight. I would only recommend sizing down half a size if you are in-between sizes. If you typically have problems getting boots to fit your calves, do not size down!

My son wears a 13 (I think every other pair of shoes he owns always 13) so we ordered these in that size. They are very big! You can measure an inch behind his heel and the back of the shoe. These run long!

Warning, this shoe is much smaller than marked! I'm always a 7.5 and couldn't even fit my foot in the shoe. I loved the style but it's also a very heavy shoe so I decided not to get the larger size.

These shoes are on the smallish side and are noisy and clunky but I decided to keep them because they were not killing me and are very cute. I don't think I could walk long distances in them so have only wore them for short periods.

Love this bag! I have had this for a year now and have used it more times than I can count. I had the strap adjusted/shortened slightly because it was too long for me and the self adjustable concept wouldn't hold on its own. I use it for everyday errands, to and from work/gym, and I revelry used it as my carry on for a flight. I am a light packer and was able to fit all of my belongings in this one bag on a four tip to Austin. I think it's great and ant wait to buy another smaller everyday bag from this company!

These are some awesome boots! However, because they are cobbler made they fit differently. The left boot was great, but my right two outside toes were squished. I tried everything! They were just too uncomfortable to endure. I think it was just this particular pair, I did order them from another website and got a terrific sale price, and that might be why, the shoe was defective. So, Back they went, Bummer!

Who would have thought that a boot could represent the renewal of a healthy body image? We all think what we want is simple, and in this case it was knee-high brown distressed boots that don't slouch. I have a pair of Frye Melissa button boots (with a 15"shaft circumference) that fit perfectly around the calf, but I don't like the way they tend to sag around the ankles, plus I was looking for something less polished looking but without looking like a motorcycle boot. I fell in love with the look of the Frye Shirley Artisan tall boots, but the specs read that the calf circumference is 14". I measured mine (never having given them much thought before), and they are 15". So then I researched boot stretching, and the consensus was that 1/2"is the maximum stretch by a professional without damaging the leather. I don't want to hate wearing beautiful expensive boots because they cut off my circulation and exacerbate my budding varicose vein. So I let go of the dream and stumbled across the Bed Stu Manchester II. Love the distressed look and the way they stay straight on the leg while being worn. I am not a criss-cross-lace-up-the-back type person, so that feature was almost a deal-breaker for me when looking at them online. However, I decided that the overall styling doesn't scream sexy pirate like what I usually associate with the criss cross lace up detail. I'm glad I was able to overlook that, as that feature is what allows the boot to accommodate different calf sizes and to be fitted enough to stand straight without slouching. (And I guess the fact that I can leave my cleavage covered while wearing them helps, too.) The color black is not truly black -- I was looking for a dark brown and I would say the black qualifies as dark brown. I ordered a half-size down as recommended in other reviews and they fit well in length. The footbed on my slightly wider foot was a little narrow at first but has accommodated the width of my foot well after a few wearings. I guess I'm mildly neurotic about body image (as most American women are, right?) so in the span of a week, my thought process plummeted and rose as follows: I want some cute boots to wear with leggings and skinny jeans. Wow, I didn't know I was fat; I guess I 'm fat. Or maybe just too old to attempt to look stylish (43). Oh these boots fit well and are really cute -- that's just the look I was going for. Hey -- I do still look pretty decent! One other item to note that I didn't see in product description. The tag with the boots reads, although we do use a sealing agent in our process, the finish will continue to distress with use and as a result the finish may rub off. The distressing may be exacerbated under hot, moist conditions. We recommend that you exercise caution in the early days of use and avoid direct contact with fabrics or other surfaces." I have not had any problems with this and have not seen it addressed in other reviews, but it's worth noting. I love these boots. Oh and did I mention that they are a lot less than the Frye boots I started out with but are great quality?
