Old Gringo has CHANGED their sizing. All of their new styles are cut much narrower in the shaft of the boot and are unwearable unless you have s VERY slender calf. I am height weight proportionate but I am a runner and horse back rider and I have calves, so this new sizing is laughable. I guess they are going for a market that wears skinny jeans instead of boot cut? I have no idea, but I spent an hour in Allen's Boots in Austin Texas confirming this by comparing their old and new styles in my usual size of 7, which is half a size down than my normal size because they use Mexican sizing. Every OG pair I own----and yes, I'm somewhat obsessed with them as the first reviewer of this style is-----is a size 7 and fit fine over my calves. I further confirmed this by speaking to the salesperson at Allen's who said another customer has said the same thing and that he would speak to the sales rep noting our feedback. I guess if I buy another pair of OG it will have to be an old style unless they got thei head back on straight and go back to NORMAL sizing.

Hoped the these would work, but after trying on carpet for a couple of times, I reluctantly came to admit that I need the next half size up. Unfortunately it is not available. Beautiful soft leather that is a perfect blend of autumn colors. Per usual with OG boots, the inner sole at the metatarsal area is not padded. This is an issue for me. I need the extra room to insert a pad to cushion a neuroma. Sadly these will be heading back instead of getting compliments with my mix and match seasonal jeans and cords. So appreciate Zappo's return policy.

Gorgeous boot. Just can't say enough about the design with the embroidery and studs, the color, and the 2 zippers that are beautifully executed. The 2 zippers were heavenly for ease of getting on/off. No more fish-flopping-around-the-room trying to get the boots on and off. I would keep these in a heartbeat; however, the length of the toe area is ridiculously long and curves noticeable upwards in an exaggerated fashion. It makes the boot clownish. Wish Old Gringo would widen the toe box and round the toe a bit like some of Lucchese or Frye boots. Just not a fan of that long, too narrow, curved upward toe box, and so many of Old Gringo's boots have that shape. I used to ride horses and wore plenty of cowgirl boots, but I can't imagine that I'd have liked this extreme exaggeration in the length of the toe. If I size down to my regular size 9.5, the narrow, long toe box is just too tight - and still looks clownish. Just a shame because these are beautiful in every other way. In fact, I'm in love with the look of many of the Old Gringo designs. But that long, curved upwards toe area is going to keep me from purchasing. Sadly, back these go. I do love Zappos for being so patient with my mission to find a few pairs of boots that actually fit and call to me in terms of style, finish, and quality. I don't mind paying a high price if I can find all of that in a boot.

This boot is extremely narrow, the leather is very hard, like wood, there is no give at all. If you don't have very very narrow feet and calves, don't buy. They are very pretty and stylish, sadly.

This is a beautifully embroidered boot. However - the toe tips up just a bit so it reminded me of an elf boot. They are very well made, but the sizing runs a bit small and the top of the shaft is a bit snug fitting. This would be fine if you are wearing something thin, but with heavier jeans it could be too snug.

I'm proud to say the LS Zorril from Old Gringo is my first pair of cowboy boots. As a boot lover, I wanted to finally add a pair of Western shoes to my closet. I'm extremely picky when it comes to this type of boot - the toe is beautiful, the details are meticulously defined throughout, and they are super comfortable to "boot." These shoes do not click when you walk, btw. As a cosmetologist on her feet over 8hrs a day, these do the job! I get compliments nonstop!!

These boots are FABULOUS! Gorgeous color contrast between the cornflower blue embroidery and the chocolate brown leather. These are classic and I've received several compliments already only having worn them twice. A definite staple boot to pull an outfit together without dominating your look (if that makes any sense).

To say that I'm a HUGE fan/collector of OG is a massive understatement. To be honest, I'm a bit obsessed. I saw these when they were first listed and I promptly put them in my shopping cart and drooled over them every day for nearly two months before I bit the bullet, no pun intended, and ordered them. I've been looking for a boot with retro pin up cowgirls and pistols on it to add to my rather extensive collection for several years now and truly thought I'd found the perfect pair. Sadly, it is not to be. :( I don't know if it's the toe box shape--more round than OG's traditional snip toe--that effects the rest of the boot's construction but it was a struggle to get my feet into them, not typical at all for me with OG, and once I did I felt like my foot was constricted with the arch of the boot pushing way up into my foot. Again, not the norm for OG. Taking them off was a challenge as well and at one point I almost wondered if I was going to get my foot out without twisting my ankle. In addition to these structural issues, I honestly thought the color scheme for the cowgirls looked somewhat cheap/tacky. The white for their legs is REALLY unappealing, at least to me, and their shape is more stout than curvy like the retro pin ups they are meant to resemble. So.....my search continues and these ladies go back. :(

Well made boot and comfortable yet a smidge clunky. I ordered the brown color which had distress/very apparent scratch markings on the boot which I do not like at all. Unfortunately, will return them.

Absolutely beautiful and surprisingly comfortable once they are on. They are a struggle to get on and off for the first bit, say fifteen wears. I have small ankles and they don't drowned me like so many boots tend to do. They get a lot of compliments. I am very happy with them.

My absolute favorite go to boots! It's hard to even wear another pair. Perfect fit and comfy straight out of the box. And they came just in time for National Finals Rodeo in Vegas (wore these the whole time no probs!). Which by the way, these boots stopped girls in their tracks! LOVE LOVE LOVE these! And so thankful for the quick shipping.

Beautiful gray-blue background leather showcases the multi-shades of blue embroidery of theses boots so well! They are lovely with any color of jeans - deep wash to traditional or well worn. Typical of OG, no arch support, so I plan on trying my own orthotics with them - keeping my fingers crossed.

In a word - FABULOUS. These boots are elegant, stylish and yet so comfortable! The black hair calf shines like silk and really contrasts with subtle the laser pattern on the toe and heel. Plenty of room for my own arch supports.

I owned the boots less than three months and had to replace the soles as they wore through.

Gorgeous boot, goes with virtually 90% of what I wear. Though they are distressed leather, they can be dressed up with a skirt or dress to wear to a relaxed formal affair as easily as they can be dressed down to for a grunge look and everything in between. As Old Gringo boots tend to run about a half size large on me (as I indicated), I actually feel that they are TRUE to size since, for me, that has always been the case with their boots. These are the version that have the pointed upturned toe but fear not, they run long enough to ensure the comfort of their customers is a priority. They are well made boots, up to their excellent standards, and I've no doubt, barring a disaster, that I'll have them for decades. However, even more noteworthy than these gorgeous boots, was the supreme customer service which I received (again) with my order. There are those rare people who elevate customer service to an art form and fully understand, even go beyond, the true job description; Jessica in customer service was one of those. Thankfully, she is not an anomaly; as Zappos truly BELIEVES in excellent customer service, even still, Jessica was inordinately sublime. They are always my first choice...but perhaps they should be my only choice in footwear and handbags. Thank you Zappos for another wonderful shopping experience!

This Old Gringo is a huge fail. Could not even begin to get it on my foot. The throat is simply too narrow to accommodate a normal ankle and a normal instep. No amount of pushing and pulling even came close.

These are lovely boots. Comfortable right out of the box. The color and stitching are exquisite I have gotten lots of complements. These have a tall narrow shaft and if you have larger calves you will have issues. I have skinny legs so I was able to tuck my skinny(tight!) jeans into them but not my straight leg jeans. Looks great with a skirt and tights as well. I bought a half size larger to fit socks in.

Amazing boot! People compliment constantly. I wore them on a trip to Nashville and they were a big hit! Cute with jeans, shorts and dresses. Of course, the pattern on the boots is stand out enough so it is difficult to wear with anything other than a solid color. They fit like a glove and I danced the night away with no discomfort. I love this boot and highly recommend!

I love these boots. The quality is deluxe. Unfortunately I could not get the right one on without a struggle so I sent them back. Maybe I will try another pair to see if it a bit easier to pull on. I absolutely love Zappos!
