I bought these boots just as I was about to fulfill a professional obligation in the UK. In that I had not yet worn the boots, my plan was to bring along an additional pair of shoes for comfort. As it turned out, my luggage could not accommodate the shoes, so I took a deep breath and hoped for the best. Well my hotel was 1½ miles from the training site, uphill along cobbled stone streets. The boots were like walking in heaven from the start! Over three miles a day in utmost comfort and support. An additional perk is that they can easily be resoled and re-heeled. I absolutely love these boots. They are the utmost best!

Not loving these boots. The ankles are very tight. Even though there is that extra elastic still too tight so unfortunately will be going back. Need a very skinny leg for these.

These boots are great looking, well made, really comfortable, and the fit is great too. I have worn them with jeans and I think they will go nicely with slacks too. I will definitely buy the La Canadienne brand again.

La Canadienne's Perla - These boots are so comfortable and fit perfectly. I have bunions and hammertoes and it's very difficult finding comfortable shoes and boots. I was afraid that the rounded toe would be to narrow and put stress on my bunions and would have liked a squared toe boot but these are very comfy.

Great everyday boot - Very sturdy and comfortable everyday boot. Not too chic, but very warm and waterproof, which is terrific for commuting--I have a train ride and a long walk. This boot is good for cold waits on the train platform.

I tried a square toe knee-high style and they fit well-but were too wide at the top. This and other La Canadienne round toe styles are too short! Shouldn't they be a bit longer to accommodate the narrow front?

I have a very wide foot and found that the wide (W) width shoe didn't fully accommodate my foot. Beautiful and comfortable boot. Love that it is waterproof as well.

These boots rock. They were extremely comfortable, from the first moment I put them on, and are obviously made of quality materials. I wore them all day today (first time wearing them) with thin smartwool socks and my feet were toasty and happy, not sweaty and feeling like I was breaking in a new pair of boots. I'm so happy with these and would highly recommend them. Very stylish, too. Will wear with jeans and skirts.

Versatile, comfortable casual boot - I have worn these boots almost every day since I got them. They are extremely comfortable and I can wear them with my orthotics. They look very cute with jeans and pants.

Great everyday short boots - Excellent fit and very comfortable. I ordered several pairs of long boots and all of them fit well except in the heel which seemed a bit narrow. A have what i would call average heels as I have never experienced this issue before. A friend who has the boots I ordered said they fit perfectly but she does have narrow heels which are often an issue for her. I was really happy these boots fit me so well and recommend them to anyone who wants an everyday boot that works with everything.

Brands I'd also recommend: Taryn Rose - excellent fit and comfort

Great boot! I saw this company in a Vail, CO shoe store and loved the look of its merchandise. I went to Zappos when we got home and ordered the boot. I love everything about it! Glad I waited to get home to see the ENTIRE line of La Canadienne.

I've worn these boots to work at least three days a week since I bought them. The look is simple and classic. The heel height is easy for walking. The leather is soft. And, they keep my feet dry in the rain. I am a size 11M and they fit with just the right amount of wiggle room at the toes and no sloppiness in the width. There's not much arch support, but I still find them very comfortable.

Not quite chic, but stylish enough and high quality - These are boots for pants/jeans, very comfortable, with a comfort you get only with quality materials and workmanship. They needed no breaking in, and are fine with normal or high-tech socks. Also important for those of us who live in slush much of the winter, they are waterproof. These boots are worth the investment, as they will undoubtedly last for many years.

Beautiful - The leather on this shoe is gorgeous. It is totally worth the price. Unfortunately, however, my calves were too big for the shaft -- which is unusual for a low-rise boot. My calves are probably bigger than average (I'm a long-distance runner/soccer player), so if you have narrower calves you'll probably love this boot!

Great comfortable boot - Even though I have "difficult" feet, these boots are comfortable enough to wear all day. Although I would prefer something a bit more stylish, they do look nice with pants and jeans, and I'm happy to have found a boot that I can work in all day.

This is my second pair of La Canadiennes and this one was perfect right out of the box. I have problem feet in every sense -- very wide feet, bunions on both feet, one foot smaller than the other -- but this one fit perfectly and required no break-in period. I always buy half a size bigger with La Canadiennes. I am a 7 W, but with La Canadiennes 7.5 M is my size. I work on a college campus and these are perfect for walking around in all kinds of weather. The Perla is not the most stylish but they're conservative-looking boots that go well with dresses and skirts to work. Expensive but worth every dime. I buy all my shoes from Zappos, and their customer service continues to be the industry gold standard.

These are hands-down my favorite shoes from October through March. I wear them probably 4 days out of 5. They go with most everything and are totally comfortable. I usually don't spend quite so much on a pair of shoes, but these are totally worth it.

Bought these boots in patent leather to replace a pair of Santana boots that lasted forever. Was looking for something stylish to wear with pants but also waterproof. These boots are gorgeous, and even better, they were on sale. The heel is perfect, and is wide to give stability and looks like it can be re-heeled if necessary. The patent leather really makes this boot. I agree with reviews that the top is a bit snug above the ankle, so that is the only reason I gave it 4 stars. There is elastic on the side, at the top of the boot, so hopefully it will stretch. If you want a pair of boots that are functional, and look good, particularly for a work environment, these are for you. You can even wear these to work and not have to change into shoes; they are that pretty. Good arch support and a comfortable insole. Very well made from what I can tell, and on par with the former Santana brand (of which I own 3 pairs, bought over 20 years ago, and 2 of the pairs are still looking great and going strong). Don't hesitate to purchase these boots.

I have had these boots for about four years now. They have held up really well. I have no complaints. I walk about ¾ mile into work and my feet stay warm and dry in winter weather. I wear a 6½ or 7 and the 6½ fit fine with light to medium weight socks.

These are beautiful and well made boots. They are just somewhat too narrow so I am returning them for wider boots. I am looking forward to receiving the new size.

Do you have skinny ankles and shins and are tired of trying on booties that flop around and swallow your pants? These are your boots! Really nice fit for low-volume feet and ankles. Style-wise, the leather is smooth, so that reads dressy, but the chunky heel is more casual, so they're middle of the road, business casual. I have another pair of La Canadiennes and I trust the quality is worth the price. And, booties that fit? Priceless.

This is my second pair of Perla boots. I have had the first pair for over four years. I can still wear them but the leather was looking a little peaked. I wear them every day for six months-during fall, winter and early spring. They are so comfortable for walking just about anywhere! These are the only boots you would need on a trip! They are truly waterproof and have made my winters so much more comfortable!

These fit like the La Canadienne Passion boot, which I have and wear all the time. They also look like the toe box of the Passion boot; if those fit, you will love these. I am an 8 1/2 wide and they fit perfectly with room for heavy socks. Arch support is less than moderate, but I wouldn't say there is none. Only item that could be improved, however, love them and keeping them!

Love these shoes! At first I thought they were too tight (in the footbed and ankle) but they quickly stretched and are now perfect and fit like my other La Canadienne shoes. I live in NYC and they are very comfortable to walk around in.
