They fit like clown shoes meant for clown feet. The boots fit very awkward and very big. They also felt very narrow even though they were big clown shoes. The bridge of the shoes is also big and doesn't keep your foot kept snuggly in the shoe. All around these were awful. The velcro wrap doesn't do anything to keep the foot from sliding all over the place in these boots. Returned.

These boots were "ok" but not great. They didn't look bad but I think you get what you pay for with this boot. They seem to run a little big. I did return them because they seem to run a little wide.

Wore mine all day today shopping, first time out. Felt great at the end of the day. Very pleased with my purchase. Love the look.

While it hasn't been very cold yet, these boots feel like they will keep my feet nice and warm. They are comfortable and fit well. I wear ankle/foot orthotics and am able to get these on and off without much effort since the backs can be folded down once you undo the velcro. That is a HUGE seller for me. This is the only pair I have found that work with my orthotics and the fact that they are comfy is just the cherry on top for me!

I love these boots that are both functional and reasonably attractive. The copper color is a very nice vibrant rusty brown. I needed to replace a fashionable uncomfortable brown suede boot, and wanted a better choice for rainy Seattle - and these are perfect. They might even look too nice for the dog park. I'm a wide size 10 and the zipper makes them easy to get on and off, and there is still room for a warm sock. I usually put inserts in my boots but this already has a small puffy one so I might not need to for awhile.

This boot seemed to run a little wide and didn't feel comfortable enough to wear for more than a few hours at a time so,I returned and ordered an UGG boot. I think you get what you pay for with this boot.

I am thrilled with these boots. I have wide calves, and it is very hard for me to find comfortable boots that will still allow room for me to shove in jeans or leggings. Not only do these have the room, but they are extremely comfortable. They have a bit of give to them all around that I have never found before. I went up a full size just to allow room for leggings and socks. I am stoked to have found these awesome boots!

I have wide feet and normally buy wide width shoes, but i find the Khombus are usually slightly wider than other boots and work for me in regular width. The style I bought last year wasn't available again this year, so I tried these instead. I walked about 5 hours in them the first day I had them and they felt just like slippers. I don't expect the man made materials to be super durable (and I don't know how effectively they resist water) but they do ensure comfy warm feet while walking long distances on damp pavement in cold, windy weather. And I'm thinking about getting a second pair for my mom who has bad arthritis, because the zipper is so easy to take the boot on and off.

Boo! LOVE the color, the down, the zipper, the fit of the bodice (which is even a bit too roomy) - BUT the arms are designed for someone who is skeletal.

I've already done one review where I did not recommend these. I'd like to update that a tiny bit. If you can fit your feet in any other winter boot, then I do not recommend these. ***If you have swollen ankles that do not fit other boots*** Then I recommend these with caveats. I've got about 24 hours wearing time on my pair now, and I can say without qualms that these are incredibly painful boots. The grid in the sole cuts into your foot badly after a short period of time. The cold seeps in quickly. They are not going to keep your feet warm if you are outside for an extended period of time. BUT: To shovel the driveway, to wear out and about (in and out of buildings, etc), and even to traipse quickly through deep snow (up to my waist a couple of times), these will work *IF* you put a good insole in them. I bought a set of "airplus Plantar Fascia Orthotic" insoles, and they have made a WORLD of difference in the comfort of standing in these boots. I no longer feet the grid. I haven't tested them long enough to know if they help block the cold, but I think doubling up on socks will help some with that. So, for other folks "in my shoes" with huge swollen ankles, these may be the almost-perfect boot for you. I will be keeping them.

Purchased Oct 1, 2016 with a prayer they would fit my horribly swollen ankles. The good news is that they do. The bad news is, Argus just arrived, and these boots are almost useless. In an inch of snow, I can feel the cold coming through the SOLE in less than 2 minutes. It's 25° outside right now. Honestly, I think I'll fare better in my Birkenstock Arizona sandals with thick socks :-( For fit, I have 15" ankles, I wear a woman's 8.5 wide...ordered an 8M in these, and they fit great. Also, you can feel the grid of the sole through the insole, but I could live with that if they kept my feet warm.

These boots are very warm, lite and comfortable. The heel height is perfect. I like the ski boot style. Unfortunately, the stretchy laces don't allow tightening the boot up enough to prevent the heel slipping and I felt like they would fall off or get pulled off in sticky snow. They also don't tighten at the top and my pants won't stay tucked in.

The jacket seems warm enough but with the following issues: Lack of two way zippers. The string that tightens the hood is awkwardly installed.

These boots are so ugly that it makes them cute! The top/laces are very bulky looking and the soles are NOT comfortable at all! The soles don't fit the bottom of the shoe leaving a gap in the back of your foot. The soles are stitched in but I plan on tearing them out and pulling in more comfortable soles in just because I love the "ugly" look of them so much.

I like these boots a lot. They are warm and you can easily slip on without undoing Velcro closure. I found them to fit a little short and with socks they are kind of tight. I got a size 9 which is my usual size but could have used 9.5 which is not offered. They are not waterproof but great in the snow. unfortunately not very comfortable but I am keeping them to take the dog out.

pretty - so disappointed it was so narrow. Also seemed like no support under sole of my foot - would hurt after wearing for a while.

Why are these so popular. They look and feel terrible. Not worth the price for clown shoes. There is no arch support, the shoes are way too big, and it just fits and looks weird on my feet. Returned.

Why is this so popular? These boots look/feel terrible. They don't have any arch support and they are only for narrowed feet. Wide feet women beware! This was a definite return. They look like clown shoes. No bueno!

There are seams in the sleeves that are pointy and quite uncomfortable- they run all the way from the shoulder to the opening at the wrist.

These are amazing! Soft, comfortable, and oh so warm! I have trouble finding the right shoes for my wide feet, but these were perfect right out of the box! Thank you Zappos for amazing service and stocking hard to find shoes! :-)
