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.

These shoes have a lovely style. I found them to run a size large. I have narrow ankles, and I am using the last holes on the straps; should the leather stretch I will have to punch additional holes. The heel is covered. The toe buckle rubs my toes a bit the wrong way, but I don't think I will get a blister. Am waiting for the snow to melt to wear.

Love these boots! Very versatile for warmer weather...can see these pairing well with a cute dress or jeans. Run just a tad big...I normally wear an 8.5 and ordered an 8 and they are perfect. Width is true to size. Order these! You won't be disappointed!

Overall style is nice but too distressed. Entire boot and back zippers are stiff. They fit narrow. Wish they were more comfy as I really do like the overall design and the taupe color but for the price point they fall short. Also should come in half sizes.

Incredibly cute and very distressed. Ankle style is fine, but Size 6 is just a bit too small. Half sizes not available, so no way to try that The sole is very stiff, so break in would take far too long a tad narrow.

Size 11 is true to size, if not a tad long. The area just above the criss-cross straps bulges out and does not look good, though. It makes it fit oddly. The top part fits the ankle but the bulge below destroys the look. Too bad. True to width since my almost wide feet felt a little snug.

Beautiful boot, but sizing didn't work for me. Normally I'm a 9. So I ordered a 9. Like their other boots I found them to be a full size too small. So I ordered the 10 which felt like a 10.5 with socks! So these guys aren't for my foot. Bummer.

I love these boots. I broke this pair in really quickly - maybe two wears and they were molded to my feet. I wore them to a two day event right after, was on my feet all day in the sun, running around. They were comfortable and felt supportive. I highly recommend them.

I read every review I could find on this boot before ordering and I am so happy I took a chance and treated myself to these! Hope this helps someone (who likes long, detailed reviews): I always get an 8M in boots because they give me a little wiggle room, which I like in a boot. Taking into account other reviewers who found them too small, I wanted to and would've gotten an 8.5 if they made half sizes. They don't. So I took a deep breath, worried they'd be too small, and ordered an 8 like I always do. They fit perfectly. I never thought of myself as having very narrow feet and they fit me like any other size 8 boot, with the bit of wiggle room that I crave. But they are fitted! They hug your foot and ankle more than, say, a Frye boot so that may take some getting used to. But I put them on with my thickest socks (which made them a little tight but still not uncomfortable) and walked around the house in them and within minutes it felt as though they were stretching. The leather is awesome. Really good quality, nicely distressed. Someone mentioned the boots being two different colors- all distressed boots I've had have differed from each other. These are different too - the left is a bit lighter, the right is a bit more wrinkled - I love that look, it's very naturally distressed looking, but you should definitely know that going in if it's not your thing. I fell in love with the rust color and it is just as lovely and unique as it looked online: a rich, faded reddish-cognac. And they look better on my feet than they do in the box. Very flattering on the foot! Great heel height, comfortable all day the first time I wore them. The words "western boot" in the name made me hesitate, but they're very subtle and sexy, not really very "western" at all. I think all of you boot lovers will fall in love with them too!

These boots are more than all that! I have worn them twice in less than 24 hours and have received compliments galore. They are comfortable, chic and just amazing! They are worth the money!

I ordered a 7, my usual size, and could barely get them on. They pinched and hurt the ball of my foot. But I liked the style so I ordered an 8. It's a little tough getting the heel on but they fit great once on. The footbed and sole do feel hard and stiff—not as much padding or comfort as my usual Fryes. The little leather loops that hold the ends of the leather straps aren't attached and slide all over. I may try to attach them to the straps somehow since these are not functional buckles anyway.

I've been wanting to order these since November and finally did and I don't regret it. They are COOL, beautiful construction, great quality, sexy but edgy, made in MEXICO not China. I am normally a 9.5 and I ordered a 9. They are a little narrow, but the length is right. The left one fits perfectly and the right one is a little snug. I decided against ordering a 10 as I think they might be too long. I got the black one's on sale on the Zappos sale website.

I love the style on these boots! I will say that they were a bit smaller than other brands. I wear a size 6 and the 7 would be too big. I added arch supports as it feels like the slope of the heel toward to toe starts a bit early and puts extra pressure on the toes. The heel is not that high so it is bearable, but unfortunate. I may take them to a bootmaker to adjust the slope...build it out a bit. They are traffic stopping beautiful though!

So happy with these boots. Purchased them in the grey 9, went up a size from my normal 8 to compensate for my larger calves. I had previously tried on the aspens in store while on vacation, and was saddened to learn I couldn't zip the back up over my legs. After returning home and reading other reviews about how they will stretch with some elbow grease and persistence, I decided to order this pair. After about a week of heating, stretching and remoisturizing the leather, I proud to say they fit perfectly and zip all the way up. Never give up, never surrender. These boots are beautiful, they go with everything and I'm pretty sure I haven't skipped a day of wearing them since I got them. Also, Zappos customer service has been the greatest and easiest I have ever experienced. Never ordering from another online shoe site ever again. Zappos for life.

There was so much I loved about these boots. The style is perfect -- not too dressy, not too casual, and the perfect heel height. They are made of good quality real leather, which I find is almost always superior to imitation leather in terms of aesthetics and wear. The problems? Well, they're rather pricey for my budget. But if not for the critical mass reached due to combination of the following three issues, I think I'd have kept them anyway. That's how cool I found them otherwise. 1. Not great arch support, and due to the style-defining cutouts, my usual solution -- arch-enhanced insoles -- was not advisable. 2. They went a little overboard on the "distressing" part. The pair I received, in taupe, had, in addition to the expected premature aging effects, at least one prominent, roughly circular, 1" diameter splotch that looked like someone had stuck their thumb in axle grease and then molested the boot. 3. The front and should-have-been-center panel of leather angled precipitously to the inner ankle, causing the boots to hug the outside of my ankles and gape widely on the interior sides. Admittedly, I do have rather narrow ankles, which may have exaggerated the offensiveness of this aspect. Sadly, I am reluctantly returning these otherwise gorgeous boots.

I had to get one size bigger than normal because these are so tight across the arch of my foot. There is lots of room in the toe area in the larger size, but I kept them because I just love the style and the red color.

I love these boots. I am a bit of a boot queen...and I was unsure about these after reading the reviews. But they are fantastic! Easily fit over leggings (and I have strong calves), or under boot cut jeans, are flattering, not as chunky around the ankles as some and so comfortable immediately. They have instantly become my absolute go-to favorite boots. I actually like the free-floating strap with the wide part in the front and the buckle on the outside (which means switching them to the other foot), but I'm sure there's some good historically functional reason why they're meant to go the other way (as shown).

I spent many months looking at boots before committing to these. These are gorgeous, and exactly what I wanted. The color is not "gray" as described but more of an aged/weathered/faded brown - true to what is pictured on my laptop screen. Given the reviews of poor/awkward fit, I admit I was wary when I first put them on. Yes, they are stiff out of the box, and the zipper wasn't smooth at first. But I'm so glad I committed to them. After a few hours of walking around, they adapted to my feet and fit perfectly. I wear an 8, and these are true to size. I've worn them to work (I stand all day) and to museums and I find them exceptionally comfortable. They slip on and off easily, the zipper mechanism has smoothed out, and I know they will age beautifully. The craftsmanship and detail justifies the price (which is far, far, more than I usually spend on myself) and I receive compliments each time I wear them.

Great boot! Very high quality. I have a fairly wide foot and this boot was just barely wide enough for me. If you have a very wide foot, it would likely be too narrow. It seems to have stretched a little with wear... I am all about comfort and this boot did not disappoint...not quite as comfortable as some of the Born boots I have, but very good nonetheless.
