These were not at all what I expected. The color is not as rich as depicted on the site. It is much closer to a soft tan, several shades lighter. The leather is soft and flexible, which makes the boot slightly difficult to put on as it doesn't really hold its shape around the ankle. The buckles and braided decoration are only tacked down at the zipper, so they flop around a bit and need to be managed. I don't think they would stay over the leather while walking. The arch felt like it wasn't quite in the right place, even though the shoe fit overall as well as I would expect from a whole-sizes-only shoe. Definitely wasn't happy, and I am returning

I am a size 10 and I ordered the 9 based on the previous reviews. They fit in length, but were a pretty tight. They look narrow, too. I love the look of this shoe, leather is great. I am returning because it looks like my feet are squeezing into these shoes! so sad...

Amazing fit! Well, that is if you are a big gal (5'8", wears a 18/20) like me. I usually wear a 10W in most shoes and these are a perfect fit all over, including around the ankles with abundant space around the toes. Can't wait to wear them to work while adding some flair to my work wear.

WOW - Splurge purchase - BUT bit-it and went for it - NOT disappointed. Love everything freebird - My second pair. Don't know why others are complaining r/t donning them - went on like butter - just a tad snug (I need a little vertical space in the toe-bed) but after allowing the leather to warm they are already forming to my foot; will require just a little break-in period. Try a pair of English riding boots for a challenge getting them on. I digress -- GREAT BOOTS! Can't wait for fall to get some serious wear-time.

Beautiful shoes, well made, of high quality materials; but the sizing is all off! I first ordered my normal size 9. Received them, tried them on and you would have thought it was a size 11+, they were huge! So, I returned and ordered the size 8. No better, still at least a half size too big. Had to return those as well. They didn't have a size 7 available to try so I'm going to try another style in the Freebird shoes. Hopefully, with better luck!

I haven't actually worn these anywhere yet, but they are amazing straight out of the box. They are very well made with a perfect finish. You get quality for the price. These are worth every penny. I am a size 7 and the 7 fit perfectly. They are easy to get into with the zippered backs. I feel like a rockstar in these boots.

I love the strappy details of these shoes, and the low heels. They feel quite comfortable right out of the box. However, they are way too small above the ankles. The zipper stops 2" from the top on the right shoe, and 2.75" from the top on the left shoe. I hope this improves as they break in.

Quail to the rescue! As a forever hopeful fashionista in need of creative work looks, the inevitable journey through age and sports injuries have taken me from sky high heels to sensible shoes. I saw Quail and realized that they had everything my podiatrist advises and are damn stylish as well. These gorgeous shoes have really brightened my day! They are a most comfortable walkable heel, with awesome edgy aesthetic. The straps allow for a most custom fit. I only need buckle the top two to get in and out. A simple hole punch satisfied the need for a couple extra holes, no biggie. They look Fantastic with everything and elevate every outfit. I will be ordering another color. Very smooth feeling on the foot, no runs and no real break in times. They are nicely made. I ordered late Thursday and they were on the porch less than 24 hours later. I love Zappos!

Great looking boot!!! I usually wear a 9.5 but I ordered a 9 because I read that Freebird runs large and I was afraid a 10 would be too big. The 9 almost fit me, I just needed a tiny bit more toe length. The heel at 3" was also a bit higher than I wanted also.

I love the looks of these! Love at first sight. If only the heel were a bit shorter &/or the pitch of the shoe were not quite as steep. It pitches me forward onto the ball of the foot. I would definitely shell out the money for these & wear them every day, everywhere with everything if they were more comfortable. When I tried them on they weren't uncomfortable, but I know from experience how they would feel after a while.

I was looking for a summery booty and bought these in taupe. They are really cute and comfortable right out of the box. My teenagers say they look stylish. I wear a size 11 so I usually don't have good luck with boots because they end up looking like boats on my feet but these are very flattering. The color and style will be interchangable through the seasons.

Gorgeous boots. Good padding on sole, soft leather, well-made, cradled my foot securely, fashionable... Unfortunately, the heel is too high for my physical structure. It absolutely breaks my heart to return them. Please give them a try!

These are gorgeous! I just received my Freebird Sally in black. Unfortunately I'm returning them for two reasons...one, lack of distressing and two, too big. I'm going to reorder them in a 7 and in cognac. Keeping my fingers crossed that they will fit! The leather is so soft and smells so good! Love them!

Yeah, this is an ugly shoe. I have seen many of the Freebird items in store and they aren't quite this 'distressed' or unfinished looking. Many of the boots are beautiful. But this one? NO. Just looks not finished and beat up. Also, HUGE chemical smell. I had to move the shoes into another room and wash my feet after trying on. On the up side, if you find it cute, it's comfortable.

I purchased these last year, and have enjoyed them so much that I am back for a second pair in another color. The adjustable buckles allow for a customized fit which makes them comfortable as well as great looking. I want to commend Zappos for their top notch Customer Service! This company really wants to make sure that the customer is happy with their purchase...thank you!

OMG! Love these. Perfect fit. I generally wear 8.5 but ordered 9. Wide enough. Leather soft. Ready to wear. No need to break in. Easy to get on and off. Exactly the boot I hoped it would be.

Pretty sandal, but the shoe and the calf were quite large. Maybe because you wear this barefoot, but I'm typically 8.5-9 and the 9 was way too big. Space for calf way too big as well. Really cute sandal otherwise.

Super cute shoe, but the laces were very difficult to size to my foot, also, once they are on, unless the laces are pulled very tight, some will slide down under shoe. I was very disappointed because the shoe itself is so cool looking. The leather is so soft.

Lost a big customer because these run HUGE! 6 fits if u wear 7.5! I wear a 5 & 6 is the smallest avail- why the discrimination? Steve Madden is avail in 5 & runs small. Why Freebird so drastically different!? Missed out on many pairs I would've been otherwise able to keep, aka u missed out on big profits.

As others have said, the size is off on this one. My freebird boots are a size 10 and fit perfectly. I ordered these in a size 9 (somewhere else, sale of 55% off) and they fit well. Did wear them right out of the box without any problems. Very soft, well made, but very long in the toe area, which serves me well. Heel height is very comfortable. Since I only paid $125 for them, I kept them. I don't think I would have for full price. I like them a lot, don't get me wrong, but for the price I expect perfection. I foresee that in the future, I will have to take the ankle straps in. I do think they will stretch and they are already a bit loose for me (but not annoyingly so)

I love the styling of this line from Steve Madden just wish they came in half sizes. There is plenty of toe space but the top keeps the heel feeling tight. I was told to order down for a half size and I see why - for boots it is probably OK but this style is more shoe-like and even though I have space by my toes, the heel is tight. Next size up was huge, as in the shoe kind of swims. Again for a cowboy type boot that would have been fine but the straps (two are adjustable two are not) did not lie right. They are very comfortable and have a pre broken in look. I wish that sizing was better so I could have kept them.
