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.

These boots are super cute and comfortable! I typically wear an 8.5, but since these boots only come in full-sizes, I ordered up half a size and got a 9. I think that was definitely the right thing to do. Though slightly big, I think the 8 would have been much too small. I have slim calves and the boots fit perfect around them...not too much space at all. The boots are slightly shorter than I imagined they would be, hitting me a little below mid-calf, and they tend to slouch down just a tiny bit as you wear them too, but, they are still very versatile. One thing that I wish I would've known before wearing is that the suede will bleed color onto whatever you're wearing. I happened to wear my boots for the first time with some magenta tights, and when I took my boots off my tights looked like they had been tie-dyed from mid-calf down. I've since worn the boots with only black tights/leggings, or else black mid-calf length socks, so as not to ruin any other of my socks, tights, or pants. Overall, super happy with this boot and would definitely recommend!

Ordered these for my granddaughter. She is in love with them! They do run narrow but we're perfect for her since she has a narrow foot. Zappos is the bomb - ordered one day and received two days later and, even more impressive, my order was placed during the Christmas holidays!

These run great for a skinny legged person. My granddaughter who is 12 and weighs around 100 pounds cannot even pull them up. There is no zipper to help the process.

This shoe is awesome. It is very comfortable. I was afraid it would be hard to get on since I have high arches, but went on with absolutely no trouble. The leather is super soft and flexible. I have had a lot of compliments. Look so much better in person!

These are super adorable and perfect for my 12 year old wanting to be right on trend. They look cute with jeans and leggings. She says they are a little tight when first put on, but stretch to fit her foot.

I really like this boot. It's very stylish and cute. One thing I did notice was the insane amount of black dye rubbing onto everything that touched the boots. My socks, and pants have turned black from these boots. They fit nice but feel narrow and I don't have a wide foot.

I absolutely love these! I bought them, put them on and wore them, walking all over creation, for at least eight hours the first day. They are so comfortable, I am so happy with them! I may have to break down and buy another color one of these days! I bounce back and forth between an 8½ and a 9 depending on the maker, and I bought these in a 9 and I have plenty of room. I highly recommend these boots!

I absolutely love these boots! So much so that I am seriously considering getting the black and/or the grey ones as well. The fringe has a nice swishy sound when you walk, the sole is rugged, it fits perfectly around the front of my foot.

Nobody had these boots in a 7, not even Minnetonka. Only Zappos had my boots. I have a pair already loved them to death - wore them every day, but left them out. My Pomeranian chewed the fringe on the right boot. So this will be my second pair, but these will not be left out. Thank you Zappos.

I love these boots! They are so soft and feel like you're wearing slippers. Not to mention how cute they are! My only issue with them in the heel kind of digs into my heel so I have to wear thick socks to prevent it other than that I love them!

These boots are so cute and very comfortable. I ordered a size 10 (which is my usual size), and they fit well. I get many compliments on them as they are so stylish. The only small downfall is that they will discolor light colored socks, so you must wear darker socks. I love them!

I love these boots. Great quality that will last for years. Look good with any kind of skinny jean and top (of course not a dressy top). They do fit snug at first but do stretch with a few wears. If you wear a 7.5 I would get an 8.

I absolutely love these boots. They are super cute and super comfy. I am a hard 6 and they fit perfect over skinny jeans, not tight at all. The sole is a little thin but nothing that a pair of thick socks and insoles can't fix. Zappos shipping and service is always awesome too!

I had always loved these boots and finally ordered them. I am a 6-6 1/2 and ordered a 6. They were comfortable right away. I also thought they were very easy to get on and off. I have worn them almost every single day since I got them. I love my new boots!

I normally wear an 8 and a half but no half sizes so ordered the 9 thinking I could wear thick socks with them. Tried them on and they were snug and the stitching hurt my toes on the sides. Put in my supports which repositioned the stitching and they were fine. I am counting on them stretching out so that I can wear thin socks with them. Don't think I will have any problems with them but if you wear a half size, be sure to order up rather than down.

Love this look and thrilled to purchase in this price point. Ridiculously comfortable and chic. I find Minnetonka runs large so I ordered 1/2 size smaller for a perfect fit.

Love these boots! I agree with other reviews though. The boots are initially hard to get on and run a bit small & narrow. I have average sized calfs & foot width and the boots are snug on me, even with me going a half size up. I'm usually a 9.5 but I got the 10 based off what the other reviews said. I'm glad I did this because the 10 is a tad snug. I was almost going to exchange for the size 11 but thought those would then be too big. So, I read the reviews again & reviews say not to go up another size as the boot will stretch. I love these boots so I am going to put my trust in this. The style is too cute--love the fringe--and they are a nice quality suede. They don't look cheap.

The boots look like in the picture. I usually wear a European 38 and ordered a 7 and they fit a little tight but they are comfortable. They are really tight on the top but I have small calves so it is no problem for me. They are not very warm and the sole is very thin so I think they are definitely no winter boots. But all in all I love them and I'm glad I bought them!

I bought these boots in brown suede two years ago and I absolutely love them! Everywhere I go people always compliment me and ask where I got them. They are two years old now and the soles are slightly worn out so I decided to come back and buy a second pair. I'm usually a size 8.5 so I got a size 9 and they fit perfectly. Some people had problems with how narrow they are but after a week or two of wearing them they adjusted and stretched a bit and now they are perfect. After having these boots for two years and wearing them all the time I am really surprised on how well they lasted.There was some normal wear and tear around the bottom of the boots from scraping on the ground but that was to be expected. I thought that after a while the fringe wouldn't look as nice and straight as it did when I first got them but I can say that it still looks just as nice as when I first bought them. I can't wait until my second pair gets here, I expect them to be just as wonderful as my first pair!

Very narrow shoe but so cute. I have them in gray black and brown. It is tight at first but when you break them in its a perfect fit. Not a shoe you want to get wet and the picture is true to the shoe. Fast delivery and shipping!
