Magnificent! Comfy right out of the box. Accommodates moderately wide calves (11 inch shaft helps, since it's shorter than the 13 inches that other "dressy" boots have). I wear an 8.5 wide, and a 9m was perfect. Note: I wear hand knit socks with them, so your mileage may vary. Plenty of room in the toe box. Elegant looking, too.

These boots are a fantastic reinterpretation of the classic 1940s Gene Autry bluebird boots, in a much more wearable color than the original wild yellow and bright blue. The delicate hearts and scallops give the design an almost Alpine look. Note that the boots have an overall layer of antiquing applied, so the inlays are much more muted than as shown in the photo, and look more like shades of brown. My biggest issue with these boots is the finish--I must first point out that I didn't buy these from Zappos and instead found them at a deep discount from another retailer, so my pair could very well be factory seconds. But, the very first time I wore them, lots of the finish rubbed off the boots (even just where the cuff of my jeans was touching them), exposing the bare leather underneath. This may have been an attempt to give the leather a more authentic distressed look. But, after just a couple of hours on my feet, they had more wear on them than any of my 60 and 70-year-old vintage boots. The weathering looks nice; the boots now look like they've seen their share of rodeos. But I prefer to wear out my boots the old-fashioned way. I put a couple of heavy coats of Bee Natural distressed leather conditioner on them, and it's slowed down (but not stopped altogether) the accelerated aging. If you don't buy from a retailer with easy returns like Zappos, be cautious about these if you like your boots in pristine condition. Finally, my foot is on the long and narrow side, and I would have been better off with a half-size smaller.

I absolutely love these boots, bought them elsewhere for less, but they appear to be authentic since I tried them on in a western store. I have worn 7 in most regular shoes for years, I got 6½ in these based on reviews that I saw on Zappos and other places. They stretched out a little and are perfect now. My daughter has the similar kid style and loves them, wears them to school and to ride horses.

I love these boots so much! I was on a road trip and stopped at a western store, and fell in love with them. They didn't have my size, so I ordered them from Zappos. They were waiting on my porch when I got home! Love it!

The boots are pretty but they are darker brown than they appear online and the blue, green and red in the flowers and bluebird inlays is so subtle that it's almost not noticeable. The inlays don't stand out at all and just sort of blend in with the brown. That said, they are still pretty boots and the fit is good. If you're looking for a fancy boot, I'd look somewhere else. But if you want a basic, pretty boot that will go with just about anything, these will work. They also have more of a distressed look to them than is apparent in the photos.
