Okay, so first off, these boots are gorgeous. I'm incredibly happy with the purchase. I wish they were at a different price point, however, it is what it is. The laces make them unique, so even if you own a lot of knee high leather boots they are truly one of a kind. The only negative that I have is that they are kind of hard to pull on, even when the side of the boot is unzipped. The calf is very narrow. They pair well with dresses and skirts. Due to the tightness in the shaft, I don't know how well they will work with skinny jeans. Overall, I am over the moon about the purchase.

They sound clunky when I walk but are so comfortable! I'm pregnant and short and wanted the height without my feet hurting. They may be too wide if you have narrow feet.

This, is a fabulous shoe. I normally wear a 7 1/2 to 8, usually an 8 since I've gotten older and had foot surgery (too many years in retail). I first ordered the 8. They felt fine, but after a few hours wear (carpet and my kitchen floor), due to how it is constructed, I felt it stretched too much. It was also a tiny bit too long, looking at my toes. Shoes with this type of strappy style, esp real leather, can do that. I then ordered the 7 - no half sizes. I was worried it would not work out, but, it's perfect! At first it was difficult to get on (I have a narrow foot and high instep). Once it was on, though, I could tell the fit was just right. My toes don't hang over the edge, nor is there too much space at the end. It definitely looks better on my foot than the size 8. I would advise ordering the 2 sizes if you are in doubt, and if your budget allows. Don't worry if you have to work at getting it on your foot at first - the nature of the construction are typical of a style like this. It looks absolutely fantastic, and I have gotten compliments from some tough audiences already, since I've worn them. They are distressed, so if you are looking for perfect, this isn't the shoe for you. I will probably wear the crap out of these shoes. Perfect for summer. Worth every penny. Would skimp on groceries to have these! I also ordered the 'Stairway', but in a size 8, since it is a close-toed shoe. Also perfect. But that's another review! Buy them!

Love them! True to size, nice leather, no complaints. I have worn them with and without socks, and like the look of both. Zipper was a little tough in the beginning but I followed someone else suggestions and used a pencil on it, they are fine now.

These Freebird "Salt" boots are beautifully made with quality leather and materials. The color of the leathers is great. I ordered two more pair in black and grey suede after first receiving a pair in cognac. I ordered several other pairs of Freebird boots in other styles that include those colors; I am keeping all of them and ordered an extra pair in different colors in a couple of styles. I don't buy boots that often, and experience with Freebird boots has shown me that these new boots will be the only ones I will need for the next ten+ years. I love Freebird's boots: I have a pair that I've worn and worn and worn for 10+ years, including every day of every winter on the East Coast in brutal snow and ice and rainy conditions. I also wore them when I lived in the Caribbean for a year, a couple of years ago. I simply have them polished a couple of times a year, and have replaced the sole maybe once; they still look amazing. I call them my urban warfare/combat readiness boots because running around in New York City, the Freebird boots I've had for the past decade ground me and I could even run in them if I had to, though the heels are almost two inches high. It's awesome to have a brand of boots and shoes that is old-school quality construction and materials; that would be Freebird. These "Salt" boots -- plus the "Austin" boots are a bit more narrow than say, Frye boots (actually, they are a lot more narrow than Frye,) but this is a good thing, for me, since I don't like to have my foot swimming in a boot and slipping around, including having my heel slip up in Frye's boots, which is why I've never purchased a pair of Frye's that I didn't end up returning. Freebird is my go-to brand. I also ordered, with this Zappos shipment, a pair of the Freebird "Stairway" shoes; they are super cute, well constructed, and perfect for a hip, edgy summer shoe that is, nevertheless, substantial on the foot. Keep these great styles coming, Freebird and Zappos.

Gorgeous boot but too small. I have super skinny calves and for once a pair of tall boots that actually fit them snugly - but alas, I also have big feet. Size 11 US usually, but always a size 42. Depending on the brand that varies...these definitely fit like a 41. Boot was also tighter on my right foot than my left - not sure if that's a fault of the boot or my big feet - hah! If I thought it were possible to break them in, I would. Going back.

I wear a size 10 1/2 and the 10's fit perfectly without socks. They are going to be very comfortable once I break them in a little. Very cute!

I bought these boots last Summer and love them! Fits perfectly and can wear for a whole day walking around NYC. Style is great, can wear it with jeans, leggings or shorts/skirt/mini-dress, I just wear with ankle socks for shorts/dress. Socks need to be a color that matches the leather (I have the lighter shade of boot, so I just wear white ankle socks). I have no issue with the width of the ankle area at all and I have pretty slender legs/ankles. I am 5'6", and wear size 6 pants. I get a zillion complements on these boots. I also have small bunions, and these shoes are wide enough to accommodate!

I so wanted to love these boots. Sad day. I just purchased the Freebird FB-Stair boot which I love and they fit perfectly. Thought these would fall into the love category also. Here's the situation: the left foot fits perfectly. The right foot is really tight on my toes. Extremely tight. Not sure why this happened, as I've never had this problem before. Super cute boots and buttery soft leather. Sure sad to have to return them.

These are amazing -- so amazing I bought both colors! Within days of each other. Very comfortable on first wear (there's elastic on the strap by the arch -- they hold my foot "snug" against the base). I absolutely am obsessed with these shoes. Buy them. You will not regret it! I wore them all day with zero issues...and they style is amazing, like all Freebirds.

I can't get the right size in these; I am consistently a size 9, medium w, and the size 8 is still a bit large - when I walk, the heel moves up and down - and the 7 fits a bit too snug and I am afraid in the summer it will become uncomfortable; there are not half sizes, so I can't keep these. Too bad; great looking summer bootie. I ordered the light color and it is very distressed, with dark marks all over, make sure you don't mind that before you order.

Super cute boot but the right sole had a painful bump under the footbed. I was really bummed because I wanted to wear them on my vacation.

Ugh - I love the style of these shoes so much, but the taupe color is finished with something oily so it looks very very dirty. I understand the finish gives it a more boho look, but it comes across as dirty. I think they would be perfect in black. I really do love them, but not worth the price. Also, the cut in the back, where the leather meets above the heel. Will have to return. bummer!

It is a beautiful design. I like the multi straps. Having some of the straps be adjustable would make it better. Also, the center back of the heel, where the two sides are sewn together rubbed, so I applied some Nivea cream to that area. It would be best to have that seam contoured to match most peoples heel shape, not just a straight up-and-down seam, have it flare out a bit at the opening. The stitching is coming loose there as well, just on the lining. All considered, I don't regret the purchase, love the all leather construction! The heel height is perfect.

Love the shoe but they ran very narrow. I am a medium width but barely got my foot into them. If you have very narrow foot, you will love them. Unfortunately I had to return them.

Let me start by saying I do like these sandals. Unfortunately, the left one when I walked made a clicking sound underneath the sole when I walked...even on carpet! (It was as though the leather was flexing and made a sound against itself like a loose piece of floorboard would.) The left shoe's top strap on the third hole was not punched entirely through. I did not force it because they are being returned and I did not want to do anything myself! They did run large and so I bought the size 7 instead of my usual 7 1/2 and the fit was spot on. The interior lining was very soft and was comfortable, however the amount of cushioning throughout the entire shoe was negligible. They did feel mostly like wood underneath soft leather and in the long run probably wouldn't be comfortable. Ultimately I am sad because the styling is adorable and was just what I am looking for...so the search continues!

These boots arrived the day after I ordered them which was amazing; however, like other reviewers, they just weren't comfortable. These are really good looking distress boots and really cool; however, I took the advice of others to order a size smaller and the 7 I ordered just is too snug. I normally wear a 7 1/2. I am debating exchanging for an 8 but fear they will be too big. Anyone do this?

Rustic fashionable look. However, not very comfortable due to the stiffness of the leather. I suppose after significant use the boot may soften and conform to one's feet but by then the already rugged looking boot would have bought it.

I absolutely love these! I ordered these in the late afternoon on a Friday. The associate said I had missed the cutoff for a Monday delivery, which was understandable. However, knowing Zappos, I had a feeling they would still arrive on Monday. And, I was right! Thank you, Zappos! Your customer service is amazing! Now, onto the boots! I love them! I am normally a size 9, a 40 in Danskos, and every so often, a 8½ in a very few brands, so I debated on these for some time. Would they be too big, would they be too small? Well, I ordered size 9, and I am wearing them comfortably right out of the box. They do sort of have a clog feel to them in the heel. The metal zipper was a bit difficult at first, but I used a pencil tip (graphite) on the teeth to loosen it up. It pulls up and down easily now. I think these will be a nice transition, with the negative spaces created by the straps, between our Iowa winter and spring (and all-out skin revealing sandals!) I chose the taupe, (though I would say it is a yellowish based nude), and accurately depicted in the photo. I plan to wear them with them skinnies (especially white, as I love that neutral white and nude look!) And, now, my inner "shoe-ie" is prodding me to get the black ones, too, as I love the contrast stitching on the them. So, maybe! I hope this helps anyone who is debating on these because of size. They are cute! ( and, PS, I am 65 years young!).

beware the beige! it has dark spots. looks like black dust/oil has been rubbed on the shoe on the sides and under the buckles. i wondered if someone had worn these and then returned them at first but the discoloration can't be wiped away. also, it has very unevenly spaced holes to secure the straps. the straps are very loose overall for me and there are 3 holes in which to buckle. hole 1 and 2 are normal but hole 3 is a lot further away. i need to punch a hole between # 2 and 3 if i keep them. i'm not sure yet. i would love them if they didn't look dirty! another note, i also bought the black distressed color and it is awesome. great color, great hole punching :) those i'm keeping for certain.

I love Frye but found these to be super cute. Comfortable right out of the box and true to size. I'm a 7.5 so I got the 8 since whole sizes were the only option. Perfect. I wish they were a few inches taller because I need more of an ankle boot than a bootie. I might try the Austin despite that bad reviews.
