I am obsessed with these boots. I was wary of wearing fringe boots, but I saw Anya from Project Runway wearing them all the time and I thought they looked super cute. I was so excited when I got these that I've worn them every day since I purchased them 2 months ago. They seriously look good with everything. I've worn them with skinny jeans, dresses and skirts. Every time I wear them, I get compliments and people want to know where I bought them. I bought the black so they match my wardrobe, but I bet they would be cute in any color. The boots are really comfy. I went up half a size, as suggested by previous reviews, and they fit perfectly! They are a tiny bit narrow, but they stretch. Also, the color on the inside will transfer for the first couple wears. Be sure to wear dark colored socks or socks you don't mind getting slightly colored. Only downside -- they are suede, so living in MN means I can't wear them all year round. It snowed last week so I had to put them away. But I will be wearing them on all non-snow days. The mid calf height makes them wearable in spring and summer. I'm in love with Minnetonka brand now. I'm thinking of buying the mocs and some knee high boots soon.

It looks better in the picture in person the fringe is uneven and exposes the top stitching of the lower level in back. Returning ASAP.

I love these! I would recommend buying them a half to full size smaller as mine have stretched so much now they don't fit without two pairs of socks and inserts. The inserts allow for a lot of support so I don't care that they didn't come with any. I'm so glad they come in more colors so I can buy them all. Also, for storage...get stuff so they stay upright...otherwise the little stands bend and then it doesn't look so cute anymore.

These are not cozy and comfortable as they appear. I went 1/2 size up because they did not offer 1/2 sizes, but the toe is still narrow. They are unlined. They just don't feel like they look.

Zappos Cust Svc is absolutely THE BEST. I spoke to 4 different Cust Svc members & was told something different by each. The last one told me that if you call you should receive free next day delivery. I had a time constraint with my item and it had been shipped USPS 3 day priority but was not mailed until the day after I ordered it which would make it late for the event I needed it for. I was told it would ship the same day as my order which would have made it on time. The rep sent me the item next day FOR FREE & had the original order credited when I refused it. I called Zappos to let them know I had refused the item and was credited immediately, not needing to wait until the item was actually rec'd back (Zappos checked with USPS tracking to see that it had been refused). The sales associate that I spoke to on this day was also spectacular. For all my troubles she gave me a $100 credit coupon. Zappos rocks! And the boot, it fits great & I have skinny calves & a wide foot! It is so cute with the 3 layers of fringe. They are very comfortable. I wore them in the grass on two occasions.

Brands I'd also recommend: Minnetonka all the way!!

I so wanted these boots to fit so after reading all the reviews, bought a full size larger than normal. Alas, my foot wouldn't even slide into the boot. I also didn't take note that there is no zipper. They are so adorable and I love the flexible sole but I'll be returning them with a sad, sad face.

These are awesome! So comfortable, fit true to size. Suede is thick and nice quality, the fringe is heavy and awesome. Someone said that the fringe was uneven, and stitching is exposed. So not the case. Worth the money, very cool boots.

I was looking all over for some fun fringed boots for the fall. I'm so glad I decided to order these! They are very well made with very soft, pliable suede. Very comfortable - no break in time required. And they are just so fun to wear. If you are looking for some fringe boots, I highly recommend these! You won't be disappointed. Also, I wanted to mention they seem pretty true-to-size.

I adore these boots! They look amazing with skinny jeans and a sweater, I love how the fringe adds movement. They are fun to wear but also really stylish and attractive. They're also very comfortable for walking. No arch support or anything like that, but they're cushiony and they hug your feet nicely. I make these the centerpiece of my outfit -- I pick out the boots to wear before I pick out my clothes. They are great and I highly recommend them to anyone thinking of buying.

This is my 2nd time purchasing these boots. I absolutely love these! They take a few weeks to relax and mold to your feet, whereupon they become so perfectly comfortable. I wear these everywhere. They go really well with leggings, skirts and dresses. I wear them in town as well as when I hike on various trails and on the beach. The reason I purchased another pair was due to me wearing through the heels and the sun bleaching them a little gray/green after a few years. Super stylish and fun too.

I love Minnetonka more and more as time goes on. I have the 5 layer fringe and love them, so I bought these for a shorter, more summery boot to wear with dresses and skirts. Plus, the look of the 3 layer is not as bold as the 5 layer for summer styles. The three layer boots run a lot different! They are slip on, not zip up and they run a lot smaller- especially if you are a bigger calf girl (like myself). I always wear a size 7 in Minnetonka boots, but I had to order an 8 just to get them on. They are still snug on the top but do-able. I'm going to drop them off at the shoe guy to get them stretched around the calf. Hope my review helps...

These are the cutest boots ever! And they are so comfortable, too! I never had to break them in, like some other shoes that I have. Customer service was wonderful, I needed a larger size and received the new pair the next day! Thank you!

I am very pleased with the services from Zappos. I just had to have these boots and once they were delivered and I tried them on I realized they were a bit too tight. I quickly call customer service and they sent out a new size the very next day. I was shocked...they even emailed me the postage so that I can do an easy return and it was easy, quick and I highly recommend anything from this company!

I am in love with these boots! They are super comfortable after you wear them about 2 or 3 times. The first few times you put them on they are a little stiff. I bought my daughter the matching ones! I want the black ones now.

I could not wait to get these beauties once I received them love at first site. I still love them but unfortunately I can not wear them anymore. Three months after getting and hardly wearing but one day go to put them on and there was a hole in the toe area. That is a bummer because now it is a waste of money just sitting in my closet.

It's a cute boot but very tricky to get on and nearly impossible to get off. And the dye in the boot will stain all of your socks.

I absolutely adore these boots. I originally had the Minnetonka short fringe boots but wanted something taller with a sole for winter. These boots are everything I could have hoped for and more. as far as size goes, I was skeptical at first because many of the reviews said they ran big. However, I ordered my normal size (7) and they couldn't fit more perfect. The only thing I would be cautious of is the tightness at the top. I have smaller calves so they work fine for me but if you have larger calves they may be snug at the very top (although they will stretch a somewhat with wear).

If you go to the original website. The bottom of the boots have the name brand on them. These boots don't even have name brand on the bottom. They fake. And they charge the same as the original which is completely messed up. I should sue y'all for false advertisement. This kind of pisses me off seeing people getting ripped off. Some of them have the name brand on the bottom but not this color. Be careful people. Look at those pics closely.

I bought these for my 10 yo daughter, she loves them. They fit her perfectly, true to size (she has a big foot for a 10 yo. They wear well, she is not the easiest on shoes and they look good with several wears. Will need to wear socks and may need an extra insole but otherwise great.

Love these! I wear them more as like slippers around the house because I don't want to get them wet or full of salt. I usually wear a 7.5-8 and the size 8 fits perfectly and allows room for socks.

Been wanting these for a while and now I have them in black and brown. Will be buying the grey pair probably today. I received the black I'm a 9 for Christmas and thought and 8 would Maybe fit better. I ordered the brown in an 8 and there was no way in the world I was going to keep the 8. I'm usually an 8 1/2 in boots so I figured the 8 would be a better fit. My toes didn't have enough room and they felt scrunched up. There wasn't enough stretching in the world to make them fit. I went thru the exchange process and received the 9 maybe 2 days later. Zappos customer service is the best I've seen. I wear inserts with these boots along with a thick sock. It helps with the extra room I have. These are great boots and they literally make any outfit complete!
