I'm really pleased with these boots. I got them in black and walked all over NYC in them for several days. They were comfortable right out of the box (no breaking in required), and they work equally well with skinny jeans or dresses. The leather is soft, and the gunmetal hardware looks really sharp. Best of all, they make me feel like River Tam when I wear them. I hope they wear as well as I think they will. I'm considering getting them in brown too!

Not to be totally inappropriate, but these boots totally made me look like I was in the Gestapo. I tried them with three different outfits...no way.

Looked a long time for this height boot with some nice detail to wear with a maxi. These boots are beautiful. My calves are stocky, so I was little worried about the circumference, but they work great. Only down side is that the finish on the leather scratches really easily. Dresses them down as they look distressed. Down expect them to look dressy, but for fun, casual, they are perfect!

These are super nice boots, insanely comfortable. Order at least a half size smaller than your actual size, they do run big. Unfortunately, I'm sending them back because they're a bit shorter than what I was looking for.

These boots are incredibly comfortable and look super stylish. The first time I wore them, the heels were a bit snug, which I didn't mind, but they loosened up slightly as I wore them the first day. The leather is incredibly soft, so I use a good leather protector spray on them every few weeks. They're holding up great with frequent wear and are very supportive for walking and standing. I've had great luck with Born shoes, and I'm glad to find more on-trend styles from them every year.

I'd also recommend: Frye

I love these boots! I want them to fit so badly, but they just don't. The length is good, but the width at the instep is too narrow. They make my feet fall asleep! Returning.

I received the merchandise (boots) very quick, but they had some leather coloring issues and weren't the quality I expected for the price. I normally wear a size 8 and the boots were a little tight on my feet. I would have to order a 8.5 if I wanted to keep them. I am requesting a refund and will order something else at a later date.

I'd also recommend: I like Born products. Not sure what other shoes to recommend.
