Thumbs-down -- way down. After only a few minutes of wear the zipper on one boot failed. It now will not stay zipped, so the boot is too loose to wear. Such junk. In addition to the poor quality, these boots are not warm at all. Spend your money elsewhere.

I just received this pair today and love them! I wear an 8 but the only boot available was a size 9 (thank God). With 1 thick wool sock on, I have a good amount of wiggle room. These boots run very small so I suggest buying a full size larger than what you usually wear. Other than that, I am thrilled to have these boots!

I took a chance and ordered these before there were any reviews up. They're really cute and seem like they would be warm and comfy but the problem is in the design. They kind of flop open at the top and the laces don't go up high enough to really secure the boots. The fold-up option isn't really an option either because again, the laces don't go up that high and it doesn't seem like they would stay up too well on their own. They're too bulky to wear pants over but not really tall enough to tuck pants into since they only lace part of the way up. Too bad because they are cute.

Excellent quality boots that are true to size in length but narrow enough to fit my narrow feet. Very fashionable. Incredibly light weight and tall enough to step into the deepest snow in Chicago. I get many compliments on these boots. Love them! I am ordering a second pair now.

I wanted to like these! Waterproof, insulated, non-leather, and not too granola-looking -- perfect for sloshing through grubby city snow. Though cute and warm, these rubbed the insides of my ankles badly even through thick socks.

I thought these boots were really cute and quite comfortable. I ordered a half size up and thought they were too big. From what I could tell, they kept my feet pretty warm the first cold days in Chicago. The first time I wore them, the front got scuffed up and I could tell the material would just continue to peel off. Fortunately, I was able to return them because I thought the quality was poor (I bought them at DSW).

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.
