I am absolutely in love with these boots. These are my 5th pair of minnetonkas and after reading reviews I went back and forth on size. Honestly this style runs true to size where other styles run big. I'm a true 8 and the boots fit perfect. I also wear an 8 in the tramper ankle boot if that helps anyone decide (though the trampers run a little big). I definitely recommend these!

I originally ordered this boot in a size 7, which is my true shoe size. They arrived and I absolutely loved the style and look of the boot but it was definitely a size too small. I just received my size 8 in the mail and they fit perfectly. This is just a warning that these boots run small. One other warning is that if you have a slightly larger calf circumference, this boot may not fit. The boot opening is somewhat narrow. Overall, I love this boot and they are so comfy and stylish!

Love these! I'm a Free People girl, and these go very well with that style. I'm between a 7.5 and 8 and they fit perfectly- so they really are about 1/4 size smaller, but I'm sure the suede stretches over time. Great addition to the boot collection! If only it had a zipper.

I have wanted a pair of these for a long time. Yes I finally was able to get them. These are the most comfortable(with added insert)foot wear I have ever had on my feet! I absolutely LOVE them! P.S. I have been a server(waitress) for 25 plus years. I wish I could wear them to work!

I ordered a size up after reading everyone's reviews and really wish I hadn't. I think anyone that is a half size should possibly go up one higher, but otherwise stay your natural size and let them stretch out. The boot felt floppy and too loose. Also, the brown suede has a little bit more of a red undertone than I expected, but they're still a good color.

I love these boots ! I got my regular size in them which is a 8 I wouldn't recommended getting a size up UNLESS your feet isn't narrow if your feet is wide you have to get a size up. They're a little difficult to get on because they don't have a zipper so you have to pull them on. They fit snug once you get them on but as you wear them they'll stretch. They're worth every bit of the money !

Okay, so where do I start!? First of all, this boot, in your right size, will be a dream with no breaking in period - as soon as you stick your foot in. I initially ordered the womens size 8 from another site (waited like a month to get them, nice!), ugh! I was dying to get 'em. I'm a true womens size 8.5, medium width. I finally got them and they looked like a size 7. I mean tiny. I've had Minnetonkas since I was a little girl, so I'm aware sometimes their sizing is a bit weird, but, man, these run small! Really truly small. The womens size 8 is extremely tiny. I got my foot in because I have a narrow foot, but my big toe was killing me. A lot of reviews mention that "Minnetonkas stretch" --- they don't...what they do is they mold to your foot when you order your right shoe size in them. That's why I made that mistake to order a smaller size thinking "oh they'll stretch." Huge mistake, they'll never stretch a full size and if they do (shoe stretcher, cobbler, etc.) they'll be deformed boots. So: word of advice order your true shoe size and if you're between sizes order up. So in any case after saving up my hard earned dough, I decided to go on Zappos on my iPhone & literally buy them there. I wanted these boots so badly & more than anything. They're so fun & flirty & gothy & perfect & adorable...besides the most comfortable boots that ever existed (that's when I ordered a size 9 on Zappos). So anyway, another thing. I ordered these last night, from my phone. Astonishingly I got them today....overnight, baby! Amazing, just amazing, in every way, shape or form. Zappos, you rule my universe. Thanks for making my life and so many other lives easier! Another thing. I got them in the Minnetonka box, they come wrapped in Minnetonka labeled tissue paper & perfectly packaged. I stuck my foot inside them & they felt like a dream! If you're a womens size 8/8.5 like me, you must get the 9. I have narrow slender feet & legs and these fit exactly right. These boots run super duper small. I never ever wear a 9 in any shoes, never ever. But when you order your correct size they're absolute stunners. No breaking in period at all. I have them on & won't even take 'em off for sleeping! Love...also my sis just got the Minnetonka leopard moccasins and they're the cutest thing I've ever seen and she says it's like walking on clouds. Minnetonka is my fave brand of shoes ever, besides the vintage boots I got at Beacon's Closet here in Brooklyn. I'm a vintage fiend but it feels so good to have your very own, molded to your own foot, new boots. These are super vintagey looking, also. Okay, yeah, this got really long. Sorry! But seriously get these boots & thank you again Zappos for being the best company to shop for online.

Brands I'd also recommend: MORE MINNETONKAS, vintage minnetonka mocs, thrift stores!!, vintage boots, minnetonka sandals, black chuck taylors, girls vans, vintage 90s boots, etc!!!!!!

These boots are even cuter in person! I purchased them in gray and finally a gray pair of boots that really are gray and not some dirty brown version of gray. I do think this brand runs small and narrow but they are suede and will stretch a bit. I wear an 8 and ordered an 8 they are tight but once they stretch they will be perfect. Cute with skinny jeans, leggings or dresses!

Cute and comfortable! Fit around my calf nicely. I typically wear a size 8 and ordered a size 8 but the size seemed to be a little big. I could have gone a half size down but decided just to keep these. The shoe was slightly narrow but not uncomfortable for me.

I love these sassy boots. Grey is a great color. Mid-calf style is the way to go. Just enough fringe to make a statement but not going overboard.

I love these! I have high top back zip boots as well - which are narrow - and was concerned these would be just as narrow. Luckily, they aren't and they are so comfy! I get compliments on them all the time.

So happy with these boots, I get so many compliments on them. I knew they would be comfortable, because the Minnetonka moccasins I have are the most comfortable shoes I own. Was a little surprised that size 8 fit me best, when I wear a 7 in the moccasins (same brand). With this type of boot though, I'd rather them fit slightly looser than tight. If they were a little cheaper, I'd buy the mustard and brown colors, too! I can tell they are made well though, worth the money, because I'll be wearing these for years to come.

This shoe is so cute and very stylish and my hopes were high but right out of the box I could tell they weren't going to work. The shoe itself is extremely narrow. I have a fairly standard foot width and these were crazy narrow and 1/2 size too small. Order up a half size and if you have a wider foot, skip this shoe.

I am so happy I ordered these on Zappos. Not only did they come within days of ordering, and this was right before Xmas, but they were perfection when I took them out of the box. I actually ordered these from 2 other websites (Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom) and not only did it take forever to receive my order but the boots that came from Urban Outfitters were dirty! I couldn't believe it. I will only order from Zappos. Now on to the fit, I am a true size 6 and ordered a size 6 and although snug when you first try them on, they easily stretch and form to your foot beautifully. I have worn these almost every day since I received them and I am going to order the brown color at the end of the month. Highly recommended!

Searched high and low and only found these boot at Zappos as a Xmas gift for my granddaughter. Not only does she love them but so does everyone else. Although no support, she only wears them for fashion for an hour or two. Zappos has excellent service, fastest delivery on the planet and superb customer service!

Super cute, have 'em in brown too. I get so many compliments. Even though they are suede, I've had my brown ones for more than two years now and the are just starting to show wear...and I'm pretty hard on my shoes. Awesome!

I love these boots! Very stylish and comfortable! I wear a 9 and the 9's fit perfect. My feet are wide and they fit fine in them even with socks on. The construction is durable and well made. I saw some cheaper versions of these, but they look just that...cheap. These are very good quality. They go with everything and I have received many compliments on them. Bought them in brown and am waiting for my black ones to come in!

I love these boots! When I first received them I thought they fit a little snug, but after wearing them maybe two time they broke in really well. They are very comfortable and I get compliments all the time. I would go with one size larger because like I said they are snug at first. You could not tuck my jeans into them at first. I wear a 6 or 6½ and ordered a 7. They are for the narrow footed!

I purchased these boots after much debate on which color to buy. I decided on the Grey. After receiving them the next day, I tried them on right away to make sure the size I chose, fit. (After speaking to a customer service rep. about which size would be best for me, she suggested I go with the size 7. I am a size 6-6 1/2.) They fit beautifully! I have very full calves, and sometimes have problems finding boots that will accommodate them. I had no problem with these Minnetonka made boots. They are beautiful, deliciously comfortable, and are a steal at this price. These boots are now my favorite ones and I am now deciding on my next color to purchase. ;)

I bought these for myself about six months ago, love. I sized up an entire size and they work with thicker socks. This purchase was for my 16 year old. Again, I size up and she normally wears a size 7, or 7.5 and I purchased a size 8. They fit perfectly and she loves them, especially with black leggings. These can go through all the seasons!

I love these boots! In fact, I loved them so much that I bought them in brown too. I have thick calves so they were a little snug at first but I took them to a local shoe store and had the top stretched and they fit great now! I am usually a 7.5/8. I ordered these in 8 and they have just a little room for me to be able to wear socks with them. I'm a little obsessed with Minnetonka.... And Zappos!

I absolutely love and adore these. My one year old has a pair as well and they are a real crowd pleaser and ego booster when we both wear them. Be advised that a size bigger in both adult and kids may be needed.

I bought several pair of these boots for my neices for Christmas and the kids sizes were perfect but my oldest neice hers were too narrow --- they only come in a M width so we will see if they stretch out!
