I love my Old Gringo boots from Texas - real leather, all the way top to bottom. But these Yippie Ki Yay boots don't measure up. Man-made soles and heels, stiff low-quality on top. Sending them back!

This is a unique and beautiful boot! The color is a muted red, not too "loud" and well made. Comfortable as far as cowboy boots go!

Second pair of Gringo's, I'm hooked. Usually wear a size 9 in all shoes and boots went with 8 1/2 on these. Thanks to Zappos easy return policy I ordered 2 sizes anyhow.

This was my 4th pair of old gringo boots and these were so stiff and the leather was so hard that I couldn't even walk in them. The pattern and look is awesome and they look really vintage and cool but it just is not soft leather and I don't think it will ever break in like my other boots. Had to send them back unfortunately.

Gorgeous, sexy boots! I love them, my husband loves them. The light blue stitching complements the bronze color very well. Stylish detail, without being overdone. These are classic. Elongates the leg and keeps it shapely -- no thick ankle look. The boot shaft is narrow. But the leather does stretch. The first time I tried them on I could not get my foot into the boot (high insteps). I tried again about an hour later, because I loved them so much and hoped they would work. The second time I could get my foot in -- that's how much it stretches or loosens. I have 15" muscular calves with thin ankles, but the shaft was too tight in size 8 to pull all the way up. I took them to a shoe repair place and they were able to stretch another inch without any problems. I am 5'4" and the top of the boot hits at the sides of my knee, but does not hit high at the back of my leg, so they are comfortable to sit without cutting in at all. The 4 star comfort rating is because the boot is a little loose and my heel lifts up, but nothing rubs -- no blisters. I may put an insole to add more lift at the heel and make it more snug. The heel height is very comfortable and the support is good.

I absolutely love these boots. I got the black and they are distressed enough so they look more dark charcoal than flat black and super soft leather. I am normally between a 5½ and a 6. I went with the 5½ and they are perfect since I have narrow feet.

I like love these boots. I got so many compliments. They are worth every penny. I love Zappos customer service reps. The young lady sold me the boots at a cheaper price that I had found on another site. Talk about great customer service...awesome job!

If you're ordering the black, you are getting the taller-heeled boot in the photos, not the shorter heeled one in the video. So you are also getting the more distressed boot. This is my 4th pair of Old Gringos, and my absolute favorite pair. The detailing is incredible - everyone comments on these boots. These are definitely a little narrower in the shank than some styles, which works out better for me. Because they are such soft, buttery leather, I would have liked the shank to be even narrower, as this leather definitely forms to the foot/leg after a couple of wearings. The slight push to get them on at the ankle disappeared very quickly. I wear them with jeans/pants, but they are still a little too wide in the leg for me to wear with just tights. Perfect height heel looks a little dressier, as does the perfectly rounded-point toe box. Tall shaft works well on my legs (I'm 5'8"). Show stoppers, guaranteed.

When a woman has a 'healthy' sized - aka "long" - foot it's too bad a beautiful boot such as Old Gringo, doesn't round off the toe. The pointed toe makes a long foot just look longer and the extra length in the 'point' isn't used. Love and have several pairs of their boots but now favor Frye for their less elongated toe-style.

These are beautiful boots! Guaranteed to get compliments if you wear them - from everyone! A small break in period, 2 days, and they fit like gloves now. Love them!

These shoes are awesome-looking. I wish I could keep them. They hurt my feet so bad. I tried all of my arch supports and pads, but nothing works to make them feel better. They are narrow in the toe area as the photo shows. If I went up to a larger size, they would be too long. I have 3 pairs of Old Gringo boots that I love, and they're reasonably comfortable. But not these. I wish I could keep them, but they have to go! So sad!

I missed out on my usual 9.5 size in these boots shortly after they appeared on Zappos. I checked everyday, several times a day, in true boot stalker fashion, to see if another pair became available. No such luck. I emailed customer service to see if any more would be coming in. Per usual, Zappos customer service rocks! The rep went so far as to check availability with other retailers, but, Zappos is the only one to carry this style and color combination. I decided to pull a Cinderella and see if I could get my feet into a size 9.0. Imagine my absolute delight when the boots arrived and I was able to get them on and walk in them without any problems! HUZZAH!!! So, I'd say these run about a half size larger based on my lucky experience. If you're a size 9.5 and have been heartbroken over not owning these FABULOUS boots, I'd give the 9.0 a try.

These are the only boots you need! Go with everything, skirts, pants, dresses shorts, crops, every fabric, solid, prints, plaids...comfort beyond belief and perfect height with just the right circumference for a thin calf, balancing your frame, complementing legs, an asset to posture. Love these so much, may have to get second pair, even though they're constructed to last a lifetime. Suit every season and go especially well with kimono styles, side slts, vests, hats, belts, cherry blossoms; like a 19th century explorer heading west.

I like the look of the boots except for the toes. They are extremely pointed and turned up a little too much for me. Otherwise they fit pretty well. I wear a size 9 regularly and I put on a heavy sock with this and that was okay. If you don't wear heavy socks, you might want to downsize.

Loved the style of this boot and the color, but the fit was less than desirable. Very long on the foot and made my foot look huge! Also these boots were very stiff. They looked awesome online but not so awesome on me - thanks anyway Zappos!

Fabulous! These boots totally rock! I'm a bit of a boot addict and have numerous pairs of Old Gringos despite the dent they make in my budget -- if you ever see a homeless woman pushing a cart filled with boot boxes, it's probably me! At any rate, I purchased these in my usual size 9.5 and in red and they do not disappoint. While the other reviewer stated that she could not get her foot into the boots, I found my pair to fit like all the rest of my Old Gringos; perhaps she received a faulty pair? If you love Old Gringo boots, love red boots, and/or love sugar skulls and the symbolism behind them and the skull itself, these are definitely for you!

I bought these very expensive boots for my wife's birthday and I am glad I did. I was put off by the price and the distressed leather until she tried them on. Once on though he looked like and felt like a rock star and my sales resistance crumbled . She and I both get loads of compliments every time she wears them. They look fabulous with skinny jeans and miniskirts. Another consolation is that quality wise they sure look like they will last a lifetime so go ahead and buy the most expensive boots you don't really need but will really like for a really long time.

Bought these for my daughter in brown. She raved about them, so got a pair for me in the blue. I own several pairs of tall boots, but these were first shorties. Wore them first time and was on my feet in them 14 hours, with never a hint of problem. They are really pretty boots, so expect compliments. Not quite as "off the wall" western as many OG boots.

I adore these boots! Thankfully NOT studded and country like most of OG's boots but they look like true artisan boots that fit a ton of different styles. They run just a little narrow but not too bad but the length is good. I'm sure with a few wearing a, they will be perfect! First time I wore them, I have 3 different ladies, at 3 different times as me about them. So thrilled to have added these to my collection!

These boots are true to size. They do not have a pointed toe as do many Old Gringo styles have. They fit well and are very comfortable to wear. I take a consistent 7 & 1/2 in size and these in a 7 & 1/2 are perfect. Not too small or too large anywhere.

I couldn't get my foot in the boot. The ankle opening was too tight. Never encountered that before. Ordered two other pair, the 8 1/2 fit fine. Too bad, the design is just as killer in person as it looks online. Gorgeous, but for me, unwearable.
