I love Khombu for their grippy soles and warm faux-fur lining. I ordered these because the shaft was not as high as my other Khombu boots. I needed something that would go underneath wider legged, boot cut jeans, and the Lily Zip was short enough for that. What I didn't like was how the fabric folded under the zipper and made the boot around my ankle too tight. The design is great in terms of keeping the snow and water out but for everyday walking and wear, it would be too uncomfortable. These had to go back to Zappos but instead, I ordered the Khombu Paige and those worked out just perfectly!

I liked the style and how light the boots felt, but they were too narrow when wearing just one pair of wool socks.

I love these boots. They are warm and cozy. I wear them with thick wool socks that have stripes on the top and they are so cute popping out over the faux fur.

These boots are great! Super comfortable and warm. Great to wear with jeans. I've had this brand before and know them to run big, so I ordered a size smaller than what I normally wear and they fit fine!

Note to self...listen to what practically everyone reviewed about this boot! Although this boot is exactly what I was looking for, very cute, and even very comfortable - the zipper will not zup up all the way/stay up. Please do not bother with this item.

These are super comfortable boots. They are super warm as well, which surprised me. The inside is very soft and doesn't rub or feel painful. Unfortunately for me they did not quite work, because I have thin ankles and very wide calves and these boots hit just at the wider part of my calf. When I walked they rubbed a little bit at that part of my leg and it kind of started to hurt after just a minute. These boots will definitely work well if you don't have that curvaceous leg kind of thing going on. They would probably be a really great winter boot, very warm but also really cute. There is a lot of room in the toebox, which was a nice added comfort.

I so wanted to love these boots because I think they look great...but once I tried them on, they come a bit short (as in not high enough). Short, don't close enough (so the snow will definitely find its way in)...therefore, I'm sending them back...although they did look elegant on my foot.

Well I was looking for a boot to wear when it snows and instead I got a boot that make my feet feel cold when I am inside.This boot is for you if you don't live in Michigan.

I love the style of this boot. My concern prior to ordering was that it would be chunky and awkward but it is not. It is fashionable as casual wear and very comfortable and looks more attractive in person than it does in the picture. It doesn't have a strong arch support but the sole is thick and soft and the cushioning makes up for it. They are made pretty well but there is one concern I had with the stitching. About 2 inches of stitch line at the top of one of the boots came loose after wearing for a couple of months. It does not seem to be affecting the integrity of the boot since there is a double stitch line to start with. All in all I am happy with this purchase and would recommend this boot. It is very cute and extremely comfortable. It is also very warm in cold weather. Wouldn't wear it in the snow or rain though.

I bought these for a trip to New York we are taking next month. These shoes are fairly comfortable in that they feel like moccasins when you put them on however, they have no arch support at all. Overall, I would say it's a good shoe; however, I do not like the style on my feet so I am returning them.

Love these. A lot. The footbed is wonderful, feels very sturdy and supportive but without looking obnoxious. I can wear them to work and look fashionable, but have the advantage of comfortable, warm feet. They make the transition out into the snow perfectly. They are a Minnesota staple for winter fashion IMO.

Love the style but really wish they came in half sizes. I wear a 9 and with socks they are a little snug. 10 will be too big ,so these will just have to do.

I bought these for snow shoveling and quick errands. Usually wear an 11N, depending on brand, but these 11M were really roomy. If the hook and loop closure kept the cuff tighter, I might have kept them. On the plus side, the plush interior feels really cozy - like wearing slippers.

These boots were super cute and comfy but the tongue wasn't attached to the sides. Therefore, if walking in actual snow, there was nothing to keep it out of the boot. It's more of a fashion boot than a snow boot. Bummed.

Great looking boots but they didn't fit, my toe was rubbing at the end and that has never happened in a size 11 for me. Size 11's are always a little too big for me. Also the foot bed had a weird feel, like my foot was in a bowl with no cushioning. I have had boots in the past that have had a concave sole but it never felt like it from the inside, these feel like you are walking with your foot in a concave surface. Too bad because I loved they way they look.

Great looking boot. Had expectations of outstanding quality but was disappointed. The sole of the boot seems indestructible, but it feels like there is a plastic support that runs behind the heel and under the ankle bones. The way the boot is constructed, the ankle bone rests on top of this support, rubbing with every step. Maybe heavy socks would avoid this, but for the price I shouldn't have to compromise.

Wow! Love these shoes. They are super light weight. Feel a lot like wearing slippers with a solid bottom. I ordered in wide, they are plenty wide and super comfortable.

The good: This boot has a beautiful profile with a handsome heel. Lots of good grippy tread. It is also on the narrow side but that is a plus for me. The fur inside is very soft and it has a special insole to keep your feet warm in really cold temps. I really wanted to love this boot. But.... The bad: this boot is NOT leather as stated on the website. The interior label says All Man Made Materials. I thought it was cheap for leather!

Just received my shoes today. I wear size 8 but these run big and I will be returning them. They are also little dirty like someone was wearing them and have hair inside.

These boots are very cute, but I have a high "rise" on the front of my foot and I could not zip them up all the way to the top of the zipper. They are definitely cute and warm, but I am returning them because of the zipper issue.

I wore these boots in 5 degree weather in snowy Colorado, and they were nice but not as excellent as I was hoping. My ankles were nice and warm but my toes were a little cool. Also they felt a little flat. I would have appreciated a little arch support. Other than that, they were comfortable, and the regular width was wide enough to fit bunions comfortably.
