Finally found a comfy, warm, stylish winter boot. Am so pleased with Zappos' shipping policy with ease of returns until I find the perfect fit.

These boots are great! They are well made and sturdy. I wear a size 11 usually, so that is what I ordered and they fit great! They look great with skinny jeans. They are comfy but don't have much arch support.

I was looking for a boot that is comfortable, warm, waterproof, with a chunky, non-slip sole and heel and some style. This boot is just what I wanted for wearing in snowy, wet weather. My only complaint is that it runs large, so I had to add an insole to make it fit right.

These are really comfortable boots. There is enough room for thicker socks and they are waterproof and warm. I liked them so much I also bought them in black.

Love these boots! Got them for a trip to NYC in February. Very warm and comfortable for lots of walking.

I love these boots. They're cozy, practical, and stylish. The interior is faux fur, which keep the feet nice and toasty.

VERY stiff in the heels. Size wise. I wear a 6 in a boot and even with thick thick socks, my heels got irritated from slipping and rubbing on the boot heels--even around the house. :(

I purchased these boots and gave a favorable review I will have to retract what I said because after less than 10 wearing the boots completely fell apart and Zappos cannot retract reviews. What happened- the lining inside the right boot completely tore where the fur was then started fraying. The fake fur started coming off in chunks there are little black faux bits all over my house. The part of the boot where the plastic boot art meets the shaft the plastic part bent in and kept on rubbing against my ankle. The calf area was def big enough, and were very waterproof but the quality was horrible when I actually contacted Khombu they contacted me about a week later and just bad cups timer service thank good eyes Zappos was kind enough to take back worn boots Do yourself a favour do not buy these boots I needed up buying a pair of North Face boots instead. My old review "These boot were 80% for cold and snow and 20% for Fashion. While these boots are nice looking they look more rugged than a fashion boot, which is fine as there is about 12 inches of snow outside and -17 degrees. Thanks to several reviews telling me to order at least 1/2 to a full size larger I did-I generally wear 6-6.5 and I ordered a 7 (I don't wear super thick socks-If I did I would have ordered an 8 there were no 1/2 sizes in this boot which I thought was ridiculous). I am so glad I did as they just fit with a just a little wiggle room (I like wiggle room). The width was good but I don't have wide feet very average. I do however have runners/cyclist calves(keeping in shape caused me large calves! Which is A-OK!)...they are huge 17 inches at the widest point-then I have the worlds smallest ankles (yes I am a hot mess in the boot shopping department)but they fit beautifully (wide enough in the shaft but with laces small enough in the ankles...yeah boots that fit! The only thing I do not like on these boots is the tongue of the boot is flappy and they should have put one more D ring at the top. I am going to have my cobbler place extra D Rings on the furry part of the boot... other than that they were an excellent purchase...Ready and set to play in the SNOW!"

I ordered these boots in my normal size 8 but when I tried them on they were very loose in the foot and ankle so I exchanged them for a size 7. While the size 7 fit my foot well, they were still very loose in the ankle. As I prefer a more snug fit I ultimately decided to return them. Which made me very sad as they are wicked cute, but I could feel my foot sliding around where the boot was too wide in the ankle and had the feeling that the shaft would start sliding down when I was walking with nothing holding that lower part of the boot to my ankle. If you tend to wear your jeans tucked inside your boots then these may work well as there was ample space for that and it would help hold the boot in place, however, I do not so this was more of an annoyance.

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.

These boots are exactly what I was looking for. They're warm, comfortable, and most importantly, have great traction on icy sidewalks. I was somewhat concerned that they'd be difficult to put on due to the lace-up style, but they're very easy to get on and off (which was important to me as I am 7 months pregnant.) I'm not a huge fan of the shiny patent leather look, but other than that these are perfect.

Just received, and tried these on, an hour ago. These boots are super cute, and really comfortable as well. I've worn this brand for the last 15 or so years, and they last a really long time. They seem like they will be warm, and hey, if they are good enough for the U.S Ski Team, then they're good enough for me! They are a little looser fit in the shaft, and accommodate a nice thick, wool sock, and I'm pretty sure that my skinny jeans will fit nicely into that space too. They do feel slightly short in the left boot, but I don't really think that this will be a big deal, as I don't expect to be walking great distances in them. Overall, this is a nice quality item, and a great value for the money.

I got this boot for work travel to a snowy location, where I didn't want to look like I was wearing snow boots to meetings. This worked for that, as much as a snow boot can! My feet stayed warm and it was comfortable for walking in. However, the front zippers would not stay up! I was wearing heavier socks than normal (because of the cold) so that may have contributed, but I ended up just leaving them unzipped most of the time because I was tired of rezipping them just to have them fall down again.

I love this boot! So stylish and comfortable. Great fashion addition for my western mountain lifestyle. A great addition to my more clunky snow boots.

These boots are fashionable. But they make your legs look fat. The furry top part flops outward, so that the boots look like a trumpet champagne flute. Your calfs end up looking twice as wide as they are normally, and the trumpet top also makes it difficult to walk as well. I completely agree with the other reviewers that they need another set of eyelets at the top, but these boots are not worth the hassle to try and fix the problem with a cobbler. There are plenty of better boots out there, especially at this price point.

Zippers will not stay up. Returned one pair thinking it was limited to that pair. Liked the boot style, comfort, and warmth but do not think they are worth the money when the zippers do not stay up. Would not purchase again. Disappointed.

Boots are just what I needed. Warm and a bit of the "motorcycle" look. They are more workboot than feminine shoe look but do have some style. Just came today so I don't know how they will wear yet. They do run large - I wear an 8 and based on other reviews I ordered a 7 and still have room for a heavy sock. Zappos service is amazing - I ordered on Sunday and they arrived on Tuesday - always the best customer service!

I really loved this boot when I bought it three years ago. However, after only having the boot for one season, the sole cracked and my foot got wet? I was so disappointed in the life of the boot, only one year? I am looking for something with a stronger construction for the sole. I guess that is why they call it Khombu, if you want the whole name "boot" you have to pay for the rest.

Beautiful boot; stylish and well made. Sizing seems to run a little small and I have to send mine back. So disappointed because I love the boot otherwise.

These boots are comfortable and stylish. They do not stay zipped up despite my efforts to carefully zip and place the zipper pull flat. This has happened every time I wear them. I can't recommend them based on the zipper issue.
