I love the style of these boots. Yes, they are made for shorter ladies and I loved that they came below the bend of my knees. However, I am very bummed that the wide width was not wide enough. I ordered 8Ā½W thinking the extra half size of length would give me a little extra width but that was not the case. They did fit in the length by me adding the extra half size length to my order. Go up half a size and these do have some softness to the insole.

I agree with other reviewers, they do run small so get a 1/2 size up. I wear a narrow and these are still a bit wide at the heel, but for the price a good buy.

Cute shoe, but too small. I normally wear a 7 M in lifestride shoes, but this one really squished the toes. I guess didn't love it enough to return it for a size up.

Love these boots! The grey is a great color! I read some of the other reviews that mentioned that the shoes base was very hard but this went away after the first wear. Overall great boots!

These boots are great! I am 5'3" and have very skinny calves. It is difficult for me to find boots that both fit my calves and are not above my knee. These boots are also very comfortable and can be worn for both professionally and casually.

This is a great-looking, comfortable shoe. I just cant wear the really high ones anymore and this one still gives lift without the pain!

I love these boots! They were immediately comfortable and good looking. I wore them 4 hours the first day, walking around and was thrilled how good they felt. I would definitely buy them again!

I like these booties and they are comfortable. Except the regular width is too narrow for me. I also have a bunion on my left foot that cannot tolerate rubbing. So I am returning them for a wide width and hopefully they will be fine. So if you have the slightest question about width, I would go to the wide choice. I never need wide shoes, but these are narrow. Zappos is always great with their returns and shipping. They are my go to shoe source.

The width of the foot is extremely narrow, making for a very uncomfortable boot, especially with warm winter socks.

Very comfortable. I have several foot issues, and these are comfortable enough to wear for a full day of walking and standing.

Sizes run a little big; I norm wear 8-8.5 and the 7.5 was the fit I kept. Good thing for free return but didn't get to wear them on vacation because I had to keep reordering different so sizes and returning them But they match the pair I bought my toddler daughter so I'm super excited to have them!

I got these boots for Christmas and now, at the end of January, the seams around the soul are ripping and the sol itself is beginning to come off. I walk a fair amount due to a large campus, but that should not cause this amount of wear in this short of time. The boots are very cute and comfortable, but it seems they will not last long.

While I really liked the style of the boots and the price, they arrived (next day with Zappos VIP service, thank you!) They are not real leather and therefore very stiff. The footbed was quite comfortable, and had a decent flexible sole, but I returned them. If you like this look there are many to choose from on Zappos. And their great free shipping both ways makes it my 'go to' shoe! Happy shopping!

The shoes were much wider than the narrow width that I had hoped for. Inside the shoes were seams that rubbed against the top of my feet making the fit uncomfortable. The style was cute but unfortunately the shoes did not work for me.

I absolutely love these boots! I have finally found boots that will zip up over a pair of jeans and my calves! I have tried numerous wide shaft boots only to send them back when they will not fit. It is so frustrating! If you are still looking, give these a try. They are true to size, comfortable, and look great!

As soon as I saw the boots I knew they weren't wide width despite the tag on the inside saying "W". I tried to put them on hoping I was wrong. No luck. I'm just returning them and getting a different brand of boot.

Bought the boots for my teenage daughter. They are very cute but not well-made. The heel broke off after just a few wears.

Very comfortable dress shoes. Bought these to wear to a wedding. After several hours of mostly standing, I was still happy with them.

I am very disappointed! I have worn these boots for about 2 months and both soles are coming apart from the foot. I expected the boots to last at least a season. I have spend $50 on tall boots 5 years ago and those are still going strong, whereas these boots lasted 2 months and I do not wear them every day. To top it off, the shaft material has already come off in some spots. Poor quality for the price. STAY AWAY!

The styling is lovely and the arch support and padded heel in the foot bed are very nice. The problem is the interior stitching that is just inside the mouth of the shoe is very rigid, almost plastic like. It runs along the whole interior edge of the shoe and rubs harshly on the skin if worn barefoot and would very readily snag hosiery as well. The leather covering on the foot bed is very nice but is wrinkled at the toe end and does not lay smoothly.

I have been wearing these for a few months now. I am a true 10.5M and the 11M is perfect for me - no heel slipping or toe-pinching with the slightly pointy toe. At the very beginning, the outside-front of the opening dug into the top of my foot a little bit, but that could have just been my particular feet/stride, and after some wear, that isn't an issue anymore. The foot bed is soft and cushioned and I haven't had any issues wearing and walking in them for extended periods. Definitely happy with them!
