I was so excited to get this shoe but must send it back. I sized up one whole size, but it is still too small. I would order a larger size but the color is way off. I ordered the grey and it isn't grey at all. It's blue! A nice blue, but I want grey. Oh well. Seems a little over priced also. :-(

Read all the reviews and ordered a size larger. Still couldn't get them on. Too bad. Liked the look of the shoe.

I was so excited to get these boots! They are really cute and comfortable, but the second time I wore them, the sole peeled off. I am exchanging them for another pair, but I am disheartened that a pair of shoes at this price lasted one day before falling apart. Hopefully, it was just a defective pair. They definitely run a full size smaller.

Wow, first time I've ever been disappointed in a Zappos purchase (I know its the brand not Zappos). The shoes were a lot of money yet they came in a generic brown box too big for the shoes and were wrapped in tissue paper like I had just pulled out my gift wrap box and did the job myself (or, had they been returned / worn and were now being re-sold? couldn't determine). The inside sole was thin rubber (with a map on it, cute) - but these were not attached to the shoe itself! If you took it out, here was this bare-bone sole (rubber bottom) directly! Also, the shoes were crunchy weird tight - it could be that they were smaller than size, but they also hurt all above my toe- line - ouch! They are so cute tho, and only blue flats I really liked (best) - :-( bummer!

Love this boot. True to size and fit my very hard to fit wide forefoot narrow heel foot. Just wish it had more support/cushion. Sad to have to return it. Now, you can buy it.

Very cute shoe. Great quality. Love the detail. Soft leather. Definitely runs on the smaller size. My normal size 10 was overall too small, pretty narrow as well. It seemed like it offers quite a bit of comfort also. While I liked it I didn't love it for the price, so they're going back. Absolutely worth a look though.

These shoes are really beautiful! The fit is a little large as sized, so I exchanged them (with the usual Zappos ease). They are really comfortable, and the leather is supple. The leather has a purposely slightly-worn look, but the quality is very good. I would buy these shoes again and recommend the brand as it's a fair-trade sustainable brand, made in Ethiopia.

These boots are cute and relatively well made (though still overpriced in my opinion). They're my second pair of Oliberte shoes, and in both cases I've had to order not one but TWO sizes up. I'm typically a 39, but even the 40 is way too small. The largest size they offer is 41. If the sizing is going to be this far off, Oliberte is certainly going to need to offer at least 42 and 43. Or they could try and fix their sizing problems!

I really, really wanted this shoe to work. I wear an 8.5 or 9 and my foot is medium width. The first pair I order were a 39. It was way too short. I figured that these were truly European sizes (39 does not correlate to 9 in most European shoes) so I ordered a 40. The size 40 was still a little short and pinched my toes. I think I'll give up instead of trying the 41 because I think it just may not be the right shoe for my foot. Too bad because they are cute in person, seem to be well-made and I like the idea of fair trade shoes.

Great boots. At first, they're gonna rub against your upper ankle area but after a while, they'll be worked in. The boots I ordered (brown yellow) came with a rich brown color leather thats smooth to the touch and the footbed isn't bad either. Amazing stiching and detailing makes it a unique shoe. The video showing the fit doesn't do these boots any justice, they look way better in person. The only gripe I have is that they should've came with leather laces and that they should have a thicker crepe sole. Other than that, fantastic boots!

This unique shoe has soft leather and a flexible sole. It is reasonably comfortable, but I think I'll add an arch insert. I normally wear a 9.5 or 10, but the 10 was too tight. The 11 fits great and somehow appears smaller than a lot of my size 10s!

These are very comfortable shoes though a bit wide looking. But I have worn them with slacks more often than jeans and like the look in both. The comfort thing is a biggie since I'm on my feet most of the day. I wish they had had 1/2 sizes.

Love these boots. I bought a pair of dinner boots a week before I bought these and I can't wear the Danners two days in a row because they hurt my feet too much. But I have worn the Oliberte's every day for a week several times. I couldn't be happier with them.

Too small! I usually buy size 10, but I bought size 11 considering the reviews and the correlating European sizing. Those are just sized wrong. I knew that size 41 is not an 11, but decided to try it anyway. The 41/11 was more like a 9 or 9 1/2 WITHOUT socks. Too bad they chose to not make the shoe for us big-footed gals! They are cute though...

Sweetest pair of boots I've ever owned. Great style, comfortable, couldn't be happier. I'll be making more purchases from Oliberte in the future. Also, the fit might be kind of weird at first, but my advice is to have some patience they break in quickly. I wear size 12 everything and a 12 in these fit just fine. Hope that helps!

Horrible . . . Stitching started to unravel on day 1. Oliberte offered to cover the cost of me taking it to a shoe repair shop, I was unaware I was buying a chore. I am on my iPad now, but I will write a better review later. I also have the gymano and it has the same issues.

Lovely shoe with weird construction glitch: the toe box is extremely shallow. So much so, that I could barely get my foot in the shoe even though there was more than ample space between the end of my foot and the end of the shoe. I must return.

Simply put, I love these shoes. They were comfortable right out of the box with my usual thick cotton socks however, if i wear thin dress socks, I get a little heel rub. They are very light due to the non-chunky soles. I also love their style. Being made by a fair-trade company from Ethiopia doesn't hurt either. My only regret is that I can't get them in black.

I loved the look of these shoes on line. The concept of Oliberte's fair-trade company based in Ethiopia made me decide to take a chance on these boots. In short, they are beautiful and the construction is excellent. They have an unique, rugged-chique look. They look best with jeans, but you can wear these with a pair of chinos. I think they are a little casual to wear with a tie. They tend to run large and wide in size. I have wide feet and it is difficult to find boots that are comfortable, so they were an excellent choice for me. My criticisms of the boot are the following: the color is a little unusual and the foot bed is pretty flat. The color is more of a blue-grey than a true grey color. It limits the versatility of the boot. If they were a dark grey or black this would be the perfect casual boot. In summary, this is a unique boot of excellent construction that runs large. Expect more of a blue-grey color if you order them.

Great shoe. It fits well. It has a great heel cup that is comfortable and snug, there is plenty of room in the toe box and the shoe looks very stylish.

Same here, I ordered one size up based on the reviews...a perfect fit. Love the fringe and getting loads of compliments...the suede is so snuggly...like wearing slippers...my new favorite moccasins/shoes for the fall.
