Boyishly beautiful. I wear an eleven, which is tough to find. Thanks to Zappos, I stalked this boot in the "Gym Grey Multi" and pounced as soon as an 11 came on line. True to Zappos form, they arrived less than 24 hours later. This boot has a 'western lite' vibe with an ever so slightly tapered round toe, which I like very much. The stacked heel is comfortable to walk in but high enough to add just a touch of sass and height, and places the leg in a sexy posture. At first glance, I was aghast to find that there was no zipper, and I feared I would never get them on. However, the surprisingly complex and beautifully crafted gusset in the back of the boot is extremely flexible! And so beautifully hidden by the strips of leather. This is a well made boot. The leather is glove soft and I anticipate it will age to a lovely vintage finish. A little tight across the instep, but this is typical for me, especially on one foot. I can tell however, that the leather will stretch nicely with a little leather stretch and some warmth. I think they will be excellent. The colorway is fantastic, with the foot of the boot a nicely distressed faded grey/black and the short shaft is a very rich cordovan color. Highly cool and very unusual. This boot will get some glances, no doubt. I can't wait to wear them out and about. I also adore the break over dip in the front shaft that makes wearing ever so more comfortable. There isn't much feminine about this boot except the wearer. It is going to be a great base for all my fall outfits for the days I need to be up and about for hours on end. I certainly foresee it being a part of my fall 2014 "uniform"! Thanks Zappos.

When I saw these boots I fell in love with them and ordered my size. The mouth is very tight and it's really hard to get your foot past the mouth and into the shoe. Once on they were a little snug and I would try to break them in but after wearing them around the house to get a better feel I realized they were just a strange fit and didn't fit my foot very well. I want to put them on and think they are comfortable right away and this did not happen at all. I just read another review that someone said they couldn't get their foot in the shoe so I know it's not just me. I'm normally not very picky about these things either but I didn't want to go a whole size up to avoid the strange fit.

I'm bummed! I have other styles of Freebird and LOVE the company. Great quality and style. The boot is a gorgeous color and style. Unfortunately the instep is steep. I couldn't get my foot into the boot. I do have a high instep. The opening is very narrow. I will be returning. I'll try another!
