I loved these boots from the moment I took them out of the box. They are beautifully made and well worth the price -- they are, to me, like wearable art, made with perfect craftsmanship. I kept them for several days, trying to figure out how I could make them work. But, sadly, I ended up returning them. The problem, for me, is the sizing. These boots come in European sizes, so that means that even though I'm a perfect size 7.5 in boots (never wear any other size) and always a medium width, I had to order a size 38, which is supposed to correspond to a U.S. size 7.5 to 8. But on me these boots felt much more like a size 8 (too long), and they were also wider than was comfortable for me. When I walked in them, both heels slipped, and the right boot (my right foot is slightly smaller than my left) felt decidedly too big and sloppy. I tried heavier socks, but the problem couldn't be solved that way. I think these boots (in size 38) would be a great choice for someone who's a true size 8, with a slightly wide foot -- and a great sense of style! Wish I could have kept them!

Very comfortable and well-made. Style from the front and back. Very short fur lining throughout. I got the brown, thinking black looked too young and biker-ish. Good for leggings, tucking in tight jeans and even under bootcut. I wear 8 or 8-1/2 and the 39 fits with room for socks.

I absolutely loved these beauties. Excellent quality, the style is lengthening to the leg and is a comfy heel height. Unfortunately, when I ordered my correct size (I'm between 7 & 7.5, and the 7 fits properly while my heel slipped out of the 7.5), the way my foot moves while walking in these creates a little air pocket that 'farts' as I take each step. Kinda funny, but sadly is a major deal-breaker. I can't be 'farting' around town or the office in these! :(

I am disappointed. These boots are nice looking, but I bought them September 1 and I wore them for the first (and only) time on October 11 to a baby shower so I walked to my car in my garage, drove with them, walked around on someone's carpet for two hours, and drove home and walked into my house from the garage and now the leather looks splotchy and wrinkly, almost like a very thin top layer of the leather separated from the underneath layer of leather. It looks ugly and cheap and for the price I paid I am really bummed. I see now (October 16) that these boots are no longer available on Zappos.

Loved these boots right out of the box. The first day that I wore them, I walked for hours. They are extremely comfortable.

I loved this boot. I first ordered in a 39 and was too snug around the toes. I exchanged for a 40 but alas that boot, as beautiful and stylish as it is did not fit me. I was looking for a grey boot and the color and style and shaft lenght were just right. I settled for a grey (not so stylish) boot that fits me to a tee! Amy

Love these shoes. A bit pricey so expected the best from them. Which is exactly what I got. Would definitely buy this brand of shoes again!

These boots are luscious. The leather is soft and beautifully colored and the inside is cushy and warm. I love them. If you need arch support, however, these have none.

These boots are very comfortable. The leather and inside are very soft. I wear a 5.5-6 and ordered this size and it is perfect. I like that it is a wee bit wider so I can wear socks comfortably. I plan to buy them in brown as well.

I love these boots! They were more comfortable than I expected. I cannot wear heals due to years of running, but these, I can wear! I did have to purchase arch support adhesives for more support.

Fantastic little bootie! I love this shoe and I am fairly hard to please. This boot is comfortable, soft to walk in, does not clunk as you walk and my heel orthotic fits just fine to improve the comfort level even further.

This beautiful boot is made of a nice quality leather. I wish that I could keep them but they don't fit my large calf muscle. I have another pair of boots that aren't wide calf that do fit and I really hoped these would work. It's not that they are small, but they are more likely to fit average sized legs.

Love these boots. I bought and returned many different pairs and kept these finally. The calf fit, narrow, they have a low heel which is nice to where longer and a classic, casual look that is just comfortable.

These boots are nice. They look a bit like galoshes, but the red zipper is cool, the leather is soft, and they are comfortable. The lining is very thick, so I probably won't be wearing them in summer, but they are great fall/winter boots.

From the moment I first put them on I fell in love with these boots. Well, before that actually because I also love the way they look. Love the mid-calf length, the slouch, just enough buckle. But the fit is perfect. Despite the reviews on them running large, I ordered my true size and they fit wonderfully. I also love the fur lining as it is light, and not too much but enough for extra comfort and cushioning. Am thinking about buying another pair in brown too. Great boots!

Wanted boots you could travel comfortably in and also wear to work. This fits the bill. Not only is it stylish and a wonderful color, it's versatile enough to wear with most outfits. Amazing colors to work with too. I love the wine color with the saddle brown decorative strap detail. Gives me just a little bit of height. There's also enough room in my boots to add foot petals. Not that it needs it. It's just a personal preference of mine. No need to break in these boots. They're good to go right out of the box. Worth the price for the comfort alone. Thankfully, you don't have to sacrifice style with these boots.

Love this boot. I usually wear a 9 but as their sizing seemed odd, I got a 40 and it is great. Very comfortable, you wouldn't know the heel is not stacked leather. Wanting to get black now.

For the price, I was very underwhelmed with these shortie boots. The height is not adjustable as the leather is all pre-sewn in the slouch style so you cannot adjust how the slouch goes up or down. The color is actually a dull, grayed brown color that is moderately unattractive. The boots actually are loose like a bucket style at the top when on despite how the picture makes it look like a fitted slouch boot. The backstrap does not adjust to tighten at all, so is simply for looks. It does not allow cinching to tighten the boot against your leg. I feel that these boots are worth about considerably less for what they are. I wish all boots were as comfortable as the Born B.O.C. brand's soles are. I think if you found these on serious sale and rubbed them with chocolate shoe polish and shoe oils to enliven the color they would be workable for every day with the right ¾ length orthotic arch support insert which is what I plan to do. I also plan to have a local leather artist make new straps that have more snaps and are shorter so they fit closer to my legs.

Love these boots! I have a very hard time finding boots that aren't huge at the calf. Because of the buckle, these are perfect. The grey has a slight olive tint to it (and I mean very slight), but I really like it. They seem to fit true to size.

I was looking for cute booties to wear with skinny jeans or maybe even a skirt. These were not it. Granted, I live in Austin, TX so we don't need any type of rugged, snowbank scaling boot. This boot is more of a snow boot in terms of style, not a slim fashion bootie. They went back.

These are real cute and look to be good quality. However...I could feel the dust on the floor through the soles they are so thin. Have to return.
