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 absolutely loved these shoes; however, they did not last very long for me, my left shoe started to stretch out at the bottom and then the seams ripped. I love these shoes I wish they had worked better though.

Love. I am in love with these. I have a pair of Minnetonka Tramper half boots and while those are cute and comfy, they are no where NEAR as sexy and amazeballs as these. Seriously. I've been wearing moccs since my mom got me my first pair on our epic western road trip from L.A. to Colorado when I was 5 and these are, by far, the sexiest. And my favorite. Something about the calf height, the swinging fringe (and yes, ladies, that fringe is a-swinging), the overall design... ahhhh, they're just, dare I say, perfect? I will say, however, that if you have feet that are even slightly wide or if you've ever uttered the phrase, "my feet are a little on the wide side," do not get these. I repeat, Do. Not. Get. Them. If you're like me and your feet are narrow to average, by all mean, get them. I repeat, Get. Them.

I just gotta say, I love these boots as much as I love Zappos (ya'll are amazing!). These boots are super cute, can't wait to wear them literally all summer long. And Zappos as the best customer service out there. I exchanged a pair of shoes for these and they made it so easy - not a hassle at all. That's why I continue to shop at Zappos - thanks!

I am ordering my second pair three years later because I wore them so much I completely wore out the heel! (plus my dog found a couple pieces of fringe tasty) They are the ultimate in comfort. No arch support though if you need that.

I absolutely love these little gems! They are so perfect, can be dressed up or down. I usually wear size 8 but need 7.5 in Minnetonka Moccasins. Since these didn't have 1/2 sizes I got a 7 and had to return for size 8 so these felt true to size in comparison to other Minnetonka shoes. Zappos still had my back with next day delivery of the right size!

I love these boots. I purchased just to wear something cute to and from my dance and gym classes as not to dirty the floors. They're just so cute. No support at all but I'm okay with them as they serve a purpose. I've read other reviews on other Minnetonka shoes/boots and the sizes seem to run differently. I first ordered in one size then reordered in a size bigger. I'm in my 40s so I was concerned that it's too young a look for me. However, I'm not wearing with a jean skirt, etc. So I make them work in an age appropriate way. Don't think, just buy.

I love these boots; bought brown as already have black ones. I usually wear a 7 or 7 l/2 so ordered an 8 as I've bought Minnies before & know they run tight or smaller. I went online today to try to order Purple and they are out of stock but you can provide email address & they'll notify you when available. Yes, they do 'bleed' on your socks a little at first.

Love the style of these boots. Order 1/2 size up from your size. They are a bit narrow, but no worries...they're leather, so they will stretch. Only complaint, no arch support-no support at all. Just a very thin piece of rubber for the sole of the shoe, no padding at all. These boots definitely need a shoe insole.

Love! So cute, I get so many compliments. I've had these babies for about a month now and I wear them once or twice a week to school and I've seen at least 5 other girls walking around with fringy boots. They go with just about everything and such nice quality.

I have owned two pair of these boots and they are classics that look good on everyone! I sized up this time, rather than stretch/break in a smaller size, since my feet are half size. I figure, leave a little room to add an arch support insert and a pair of cozy socks (make sure not wear light socks the first few months, what ever color your boots are will dye your socks the same from wear).

I love the look of these boots. They are so cute and adorable but run a full size small. I was first apprehensive about the color but it's fantastic. I hate to return. No arch support. I wish it was more common to find shoes with it than without.

Love these boots! Normally I wear an 8.5 in the regular mocs (I wear no, or super thin no show socks). I ordered size 9 in these boots. The top of the boots are pretty tight but I'm sure will stretch with time, they look better with leggings anyhow!

The leather is so soft, it is like a glove molded around your foot. Good quality and stylish. There is no arch support but this is not an everyday boot. I am glad that I ordered these! There were so many mixed reviews about how narrow they were but the leather has so much give. Another satisfied Zappos customer!

Great Boot! Obviously this material does tend to stretch, but not so much that you can't wear it. Love them! Got my daughter a matching pair!

I love the look of these boots but have to say they have no comfort at all. The first time I wore them, I got blisters on the outsides of my little toes within an hour. I was hoping they would be as comfy as all of my other Minnetonka but sadly they are not. There is no lining or support. But b/c they are so cute, I will wear them.

I bought two pairs of Minnetonka fringe boots. One for my toddler and one for my infant. They fit great and I loved them so much I decided I needed a pair. I got the 3-Layer fringe boot for Christmas and they fit wonderfully and very true to size. They seemed a little snug around the calf but they stretched quite a bit and are very comfortable. I saw in another review that someone thought the fringe was uneven, I did not have that problem in any of the boots I've bought, so that must just be a flawed pair she received. Which happens. Love them!

I am a 9.5 to a 10, ordered a 10 and the fit is perfect! Wore them around the house for a while. A little difficult to put on and take off at first but they loosened up and I was able to do it with less difficulty. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM! I have been wanting them for some time; WELL WORTH THE WAIT! Even though ZAPPOS only made me wait 1 day. :) WONDERFUL!
