I have never written a Zappos review before but I really appreciate reviews left by others and I absolutely love these booties so I thought that I would share. They are beautiful! They are cuter in person than online and made of a really soft, high quality leather. They look great with skinny jeans - not too casual, not too formal - and I think that I will wear them with leggings and skirts, too (which is saying a lot - I have big feet and thin ankles and am really self-conscious about short boots). Most importantly, I wanted to comment on the sizing: these run a full size big. I wear a firm 11, which means I usually go for a 42, but I went ahead and ordered the 41 and 42 at the same time after reading other reviews (thanks, Zappos' return policy). The 41 fits me perfectly - there is actually a bit of room to spare at the toe. They are rather narrow, which is great for my feet but might be challenging for someone who needs a wider fit.

These are great boots, very comfortable...right out of the box. They are super cute and the buckles with the color make them a bit edgy...love them and they are my go to black ankle boots.

I have this boot in red and brown and love it. Right out of the box you can wear it all day. I normally wear a 7.5 and a 37 fit me perfect so it may run a little big. The red is a muted red with some brown overtones. The brown is true mid-brown, a milk chocolate color.

This is a nice, stylish boot that is warm enough for cold weather outings, but your feet won't get overheated. I was a little concerned about it being a pull on, and not having a zipper, but the buckle strap really helps, and I don't have trouble pulling it off and on. They also do not feel clunky while driving. Very functional and nice looking.

Holy cow, these things are huge! If you're looking for a boot with lots of room that hit almost in the middle of your knees (I'm 5'2", 104lbs) then these are for you. They are comfortable but I feel like Big Foot in them. They look well made and I'm sure someone taller and bigger than me will love them. If you're looking for something sleek and stylish, keep looking. If you're looking for something substantial and comfy, these might be for you.

These shoes are gorgeous, high quality and comfortable. They are the best shoes I've ever owned. I expect them to last a long time. They look great with jeans, leggings and tights.

These boots are so cute! I tried so hard to make them work. I'm very sad to have to return them. The good things: wool-lined, waterproof, good traction, roomy toebox and cute! The bad things (for me): arch not high enough (but I have an exceptionally high arch), heel to big, footbed to narrow. And if you want to wear jeans inside these boots, forget it. I do not have big calves and these fit me very snugly. No way I could have gotten pants inside them, just tights. That was not a problem for me as I usually wear my pants over my boots and the fact that these fit tightly would have meant I would have been warm. Unfortunately, the other problems were just too big to overlook. But I would recommend these to others who don't have high arches or narrow heels and don't mind that the calf fits tightly.

These are spectacular! However, I am short - and the tall shaft bumps and rubs my knee caps. The super fuzzy lining is wonderful - and these are marked as Aqua Proof! I am bummed that I cannot keep them. I have wide feet and non-skinny calves and those parts fit in the 39!

Adorable. I am usually a 5.5/6 and had to go with the 35 in these. I still have room for my insoles (not because the shoe needs them, but because my feet do). Very high quality, lot's of compliments, and the rise is the perfect shoe/bootie. Great with pants, skirts, dresses.

Had these in taupe and adore them, so got them in black too. Super comfortable, soft and warm. Great with leggings. Black ones look a little "tougher" than the taupe ones. Only down-sides: soles are smooth, so no grip on wet or icy sidewalks, definitely not waterproof or even resistant (raindrops leave dark spots on taupe version, though they disappear when dry), and top is a little wide for me to wear with just tights -- though I have skinny legs, so maybe not the case for everyone.

These are great boots. They are stylish and very comfortable. But I was unfortunately just between sizes. I wish that the brand offered half sizes.

I got these for my ex-wife - don't let that deter you, they are excellent boots! She has skinny calves so the majority of boots she tries on look sloppy but these are perfect. If you have thin calves, try these boots. She said they are comfortable and she wears them all the time so I gave it 5 stars across the board.

Although I'd never heard of this brand before, I took a chance on these boots and I am extremely happy with them. I ordered a size 39 (8.5-9), which fits true to size, though is a wee bit short for my foot (I am a pretty solid US 9). They are very well made, with heavy rubber lug soles and leather lining in the boot shaft. The arch support is very good. I'm pretty sure I'd be able to walk for miles in these -- I've worn them often but haven't put serious miles on them yet. I have stood in them for hours, with no discomfort at all on the ball of the foot. The style is terrific too - black motorcycle style with a steely gray / gunmetal wash. Interestingly, they also make my feet look way smaller than the size 9 that they are. I'm not quite sure how, but it's a nice benefit. They offer a tremendous value for the price.

I have been looking for a nice short winter boot, I live in a snowy area. I read a lot of the reviews and they stated this shoe ran big - I wear a 5-5 1/2. So I ordered the 4 1/2 -5. Still too big. It is sized more like a 6.

Based on previous review, I purchased 1/2 larger and these fit perfect. Extremely comfortable boot and stylish. I get compliments all the time.

These are really nice boots that look great with leggings or jeans tucked in. Rubber sole is great - no slipping on tile floors or noise when walking. Leather is very soft, and boots are easy to pull on and take off (no zippers). Not much cushion in footbed - easily solved by adding insoles.

These are beautiful boots. I got the grey and it is a true grey in my opinion. I am in the process of wearing them around the house now. I have slightly wide feet and I'm hoping that they will work out but at this point they are a bit small in the toe box with thin socks. I normally wear an 8.5 and ordered the 39. In my opinion, if you wear a nine, these might be snug and short as my toes are close to the boot toe. However, I am writing to resolve the calf issue. I have seen reviews that say they run small and an opposing review by someone suggesting to wearers that they don't know what size their calf is. Here are some facts. My calf on the right (larger side) measures 14" around at the widest part - I don't know if this is average or not but I have been told I have slender legs. I would call them average. The boot calf measurement for the pair on my feet measures 14.5 inches at the widest part. With thin socks and legging jeans they just zip closed. There is some elastic that gives a bit, but it is a snug fit that hugs my leg but does not look tight. I hope this is helpful.

This boot is amazing. It's rugged enough to withstand working in a wood/metal shop and walking up and down a giant hill every day, yet stylish enough to be worn about in studio. The footbed is underratedly one of the best features of the shoe as well -- it's a thick piece of memory foam that molds to the arch of your foot. It also holds up well in the snow. As for sizing, size down. I usually wear a 9 (euro 40) and ended up going with a 39.

These boots are a really nice chocolate brown leather, very similar to the picture. They are pull on boots and kind of slouchy. The heel is an easy to wear height. I love Eric Michael styles but they don't fit me very well I'm a 7.5-8M. I have a pair of size 38 booties that fit like a 7.5N so I bought the size up 39 thinking I would wear these with socks but they are too big, the heel slips. I could wear a thicker sock or put in insoles but for this price I really want a perfect fit. I am going to return these beautiful boots.
