Love at first sight. These boots not only look amazing, the are super comfortable and did not require any breaking in. Instant comfort. Highly recommended. Look great with skinny or slim pants.

Type Z Boots are great looking, I've been through several pairs, (including one that was a different brand but obviously the same shoe). I just really wish they were better constructed, and did not fall apart after a few months.

Boot is comfortable and very stylish. Had no problem with laces like previous review. Only con is I wish there was more of a heel on boot.

Great looking and comfortable boot. Flexible sole right out of the box. Not a work boot, more of a casual wear that can probably be worn with casual business attire too. I wear a size 8, ordered 1 size smaller and it fits just right. Boot runs large, so order a size smaller to fit.

First time ordering from Zappo's and I was not disappointed. Love these boots. Have already received several compliments on them. They look great, feel great and are true to size. Thinking about ordering another pair in black.

These shoes are amazing. I love the look of them and the details but unfortunately they were a bit to narrow for my feet (I wear an 11.5). The 12's were big but the 11's were too small in the toe box area as it put a bad strain on the outside of my feet. I had to forego them but I think they'd make an excellent choice for footwear if anyone was interested in buying them just make sure you try them out first. 2 hours of walking on carpeted floors.

Surprisingly light. Color looks good with almost anything. The back has a nice blue accent which stands out more than your standard chukka. The leather laces are bit annoying but looks very good. Overall very happy with the purchase.

These are great boots. They are not heavy and actually quite comfortable. I am a 9 and they fit perfectly. The wide calf fits great, but isn't too big.

Super cute. My calves are 17 1/2 at the widest part and these have plenty of room with no weird bunching at the ankles like I usually get. I'm 5'3 and these are a little past mid-calf so if you're taller, they're on the shorter side. They feel kind of cheaply made so I'm not sure how long they'll last but they're what I was expecting for the price. They're really cute, color is exactly what I wanted. Super excited to wear them.

I thought these boots looked awesome! and was happy that they fit around my larger calf. Unfortunately I couldn't get beyond the fact the just felt "plastic-y." From a distance probably look like real leather but close not so much.

They are nice looking boots and are pretty comfortable as well. I can't wait until they are broken in and the leather softens up some. Don't get me wrong. The leather isn't as stiff as some shoe I've had. I just think that the wear will make them even more attractive and comfortable. So far I have gotten no blisters.

Received these today. (I'm always very impressed with Zappos' speedy deliveries.) They are good looking boots, and they fit fine. I think they'd be comfortable without breaking in. I'm a little concerned about the loop in the back. This makes it very easy to get these boots on, but it also makes the leg of my jeans stick out a bit. I might return them for a boot that's cut a little lower and with no back loop.

To be honest, love the shoes! And it helps too that the Harry Porter loving CSO added the special touch to cater my query in regards to the size. No regrets. In fact, I'm contemplating buying the other color. Hahah! Keep up the good work!

I bought a size too small based on the reviews I read and they fit perfectly. However, after wearing them about a dozen times, the sole began to separate from the shoe. I read where someone else had the exact same problem. I returned them and got a different brand of shoe without a problem. The shoes were poor quality but Zappos is absolutely the best, without a doubt.

Stylish and comfortable, though it takes a day or 2 to break in. Agree with other reviewers, there is strange external smell when they come out of the box. Leave them out in air for a while...quite odd and annoying and may be a real issues for some.

Finally! A boot that accommodates my 17" calf and isn't huge in the ankle. They're also comfortable, stylish, and the color/texture looks expensive for a very reasonable price. I love these boots! My only complaint (and it's a small one) is that these are packaged in a small shoe box so the shaft has to be folded in half which leaves a crease. I'm hoping with time & wear & proper storage the crease will go away but again, it's a small sacrifice for such great boots!

These shoes fit well right out of the box and did not need much time to break in. I wish the sole was a little more padded in the heel, but there are plenty of ways for me to fix that on my own. Most importantly, these are comfortable all day long and have good padding around the ankles, which was something I was specifically looking to have. The one negative, in my opinion, is that the laces were glossed. I find that glossed laces tend to untie easily when walking. I wore them in heavy rain once, and that apparently washed away the gloss coating on the laces. They now hold just as well as any other laces. Also, the boots held up very well after the rain; they got drenched, but I ran a fan over them over night. The materials and construction did not suffer at all.

Even though I have some beeswax Clarks that look very similar, I decided to pick these up anyway. Great. Decision. I've gotten so many compliments wearing these. They add a little "bad boy" (whether you are or not) to your ensemble. If you're on the cusp, pick these up ri-now!

I loved the look and style of these boots, and ordered my size (7.5). I've owned leather boots like this before, and I know they stretch a little but even without socks on, they felt tight. It'd be pretty uncomfortable to wear them long enough to stretch them to where I'd be happy. I'm going to return them, for an 8.

The idea of the boot is there, but bad execution. The toe is made extra long, so getting your size makes you look like you have clown feet. Plus, the sizes run too large, and they don't have half sizes. So I wear a 10.5, but went with the 9, because it does not make my foot look gigantic. however, it is killing my feet because a 9.5 would have been perfect. (the 10 was too big).

Stylish-looking, mostly comfortable shoe. Two caveats, both about the sole strangely. 1) It's a very loud shoe, clomping like solid dress shoes than what you'd expect from something a bit more casual looking. 2) Hesitate to buy these if you have hardwood floors or do a lot of sidewalk walking: anytime you step on a pebble, it gets pushed up into the heel. If it's a large piece, it's enough that you have to stop and pull/kick/scrape it out. If it's a small piece, you may not notice it and end up gouging any flooring you're on.
