I got horrible blisters on my heels after wearing them for a full day the first time...but now that I've worn them in they're quite comfortable! Personally I'd like more arch support, but they're okay as is. They take up hardly any room in my bag, which is perfect since I commute in other shoes. Maybe I'm just clumsy, but they seem to get scuffed very easily.

These are great, comfortable shoes for work. They are the perfect height and seem to be made well. I bought them in both black and nude.

I'm a big boot person, and seeing it in person didn't exactly excite me. However, it's still a cute casual day-to-day boot.

As others have noted, this shoe runs small. I ordered my usual size, but it does not fit. I wear a "C" width, which is what I ordered. Disappointingly, like many shoes, while the forefoot is the proper width, the heel is too wide.

I love these shoes! I was looking for a pair of tan pumps, with a bit of flair and a moderate heel, and these filled the bill to a T. Wearable with either pants or a skirt, and comfortable enough to walk in.

For years I have wanted to accomplish the skinny jeans/riding boot look, but have never been able to find boots that worked. FINALLY, I found these and they are as close to perfect as I am going to get. The boot shaft is a comfortable height, not coming too close to my knee (I am 5' 7''). I am able to get a pair of skinny jeans in the boots and zip them without issue. Of course, when I wear them without jeans there is a slight gap, but not too much to make them look ill-fitting, so I have worn them with maxi dresses and it looks cute. The foot bed is supportive, with what I would call moderate padding. I have pretty high arches and I can wear these all day without issue. I own these in both the gray and the medium brown and both are lovely. The only thing about these, is that the Zappos measurements and the Lifestride measurements vary greatly. Zappos says these have a calf circumference of 17 inches and Lifestride says 14 11/16. I add this because if you are ordering based on the other boots you own and have measurements for, just be aware.

These boots are perfect if you have a very narrow feet and small ankles. I ordered B width because narrow was not available and they hug my feet. Also, there is hardly any space between my ankle and the top of the boot. This never happens when I order boots! I am very happy with them. They are comfortable and look great, but don't order them if you have wide feet. I completely understand why the other reviewer had to send them back.

I love this shoe. I have Bone Spurs in my heel and I was looking for a good shoe with great support but I couldn't afford $200 or more for the shoe. I happened to see these and just took a chance and I'm so glad I did!

Cute boot with a decent fit. Just didn't end up working out as I hoped. Probably worth noting that the top of the boot sort of flared outward like a trumpet, or so it looked on my leg. Lacked that substantial ruggedness that A good boot needs. More of a fashion item than a utilitarian one.

These are pretty comfortable. They haven't stretched out or anything after a few weeks so that's a plus. I bought these at my regular size and they feel good.

These boots look great and are generally quite comfortable. The only down side is the buckle closest to the ankle makes the lower part of the boot a bit stiff and I noticed that my ankle bone was a little sore after my first day of wearing them. I'm hoping a few more wears will break them in and this will no longer be an issue.

I love Zappos. These shoes I do not love. They squeak, and have a bump or nail bulging up from the heel. I tried wearing them, to see if it would break in, no, got worse. Too bad. Very attractive shoe.

These boots met my expectations. They're comfortable and stylish. My only very minor complaint is that the toe box is a little narrower than expected. If you don't have narrow feet, definitely get a wide, if possible.

Very disappointed. It is not for people with wide feet at all and feels like wearing plastic the moment I put them on. Returned right away.

This is a beautiful shoe and just what I wanted but unfortunately the narrow just wasn't narrow enough. They probably would have worked in a AAA. I usually take a narrow. Sorry to send them back. I always go to Zappos first for my shoes. Can't buy narrow shoes in the stores so I really appreciate the VIP one day shipping.

This is a beautiful shoe, but did not work for me. The wide width was true to size, but the heel was too high for me. However,I would recommend it for someone who can wear a higher heel. It is an elegant shoe.

The boot itself is really nice. looks good, really comfortable. Size is narrow for a wide and the shaft was a little narrower than I thought it would have been based on the specifications listed.

This is a decent boot but doesn't really stand out in my mind. I'm 5 feet with a 28-29 inseam and these came up to a few inches below the knee. The style is very hit or miss.

Love the shoe. A bit fragile; perhaps I've loved them to disintegration. I would buy a pair please in black. They make size 12 appear dainty!

I ordered a wide, and they were still very narrow. The inside of the shoe felt weird, not comfortable at all. The style is super cute though!

Very cute shoes. They hurt under my toes, though. The rest of the shoe would have been fine. There isn't any cushioning in the front of the shoe, so I don't consider these true comfort shoes. They might be great for others with less sensitive feet. I think they are 4 stars for looks, but I have to drop them a star because they are advertised as comfort shoes and for the lack of front toe cushioning.
