A year later, I love these boots even more than when I first got them. I've worn them through a bitter, snowy, salty Minnesota winter and they look as good as new (I have the brown ones). Warm, cozy, comfortable, and really good looking. I'd buy a new pair in a second, but they're still as good as new. You can bet I'll keep buying them in the future, though.

Fell out of love fast... I loved this boot. Its fit was true; it kept my feet warm and dry. I wore it to and from work for almost 3 weeks when I noticed that the seam on the side was opening up! I couldn't return it after wearing it for 3 weeks, so I repaired it. It's not even January yet, and our winters last until April! Sadly, I cannot recommend this boot.

Super quick delivery! First of all... I LOVE that they got here so fast... overnight!!... they aren't lying! (How refreshing!) The boots are great (I'm going skiing this month and needed some new boots). I didn't find the calf too narrow like some other commenters, and I usually have that problem in zip up boots. The fleece is all the way down to the toe, which should be helpful in the snow! I order EE wide because my foot is pretty wide and sometimes D width is too tight on my calf. These are definitely true to size! Almost too wide for my foot. If I order again, I will order correct sizing, because these fit a wider foot/leg quite well. Overall extremely please w/ my purchase... will definitely buy again!

When looking for a new boot, I needed fit and warmth andwaterproofness, I found all three in this boot. Then, to add style makes this the best of all for me. The buckle on the outside for style and the zipper on the inner side makes them very easy to put on. Great boots!! Come on winter snow, I am ready!

Great choice. Nice and roomy which is important for my wide feet and bunions. I can fit my very large custom orthotics in the which is a huge plus and not often very easy to do. I'm glad I ordered this version instead of the shorter style boot. We just need more snow in Seattle so I can really test them out.

These boots are just what I have been looking for. They fit great and look stylish, also perfect for Michigan winters. I love the new look of skinny jeans tucked inside boots. But no matter what boots I ordered the zipper wouldn't zip over the pant leg - even wide calf boots. These boots fit over my jeans and look good with skirts. I usually wear an 8 or 8.5. I ordered the 8 and I'm glad I did. The fit is just right. And Zappos is wonderful, as always!

Cute, comfortable - I ordered these boots to wear in the snow in Minnesota--not to go hiking across the lake in, but just across the parking lot, etc. I didn't want anything too bulky or "rugged," just something cute and warm and waterproof. These are perfect and I wear them all the time. They are non-leather, which I like, and have faux fur lining on the upper part of the boot shaft. The foot bed doesn't have the faux fur lining and is roomy enough to wear extra socks (I have pretty regular-width feet I think--store brands usually fit me). They are not overly warm, and I wouldn't wear them if I was going to be outside for hours at a time, but they are perfect to wear for an hour or two, or if you are going in and out.

Just what I expected. These are very nice, warm, and comfortable boots. I can just throw them on for a walk on the beach, no laces to mess with. The zipper is well made and easy to use. They look good, too. I love Zappos!

Toasty toes! I'm very pleased with these boots. I needed some new boots for winter in Chicago, but didn't want to have to resort to wearing Uggs. These seem like they will fit the bill nicely. I ordered a 9W and they are, if anything, a bit too wide for me. Not a problem - more room for thick socks. My only quibble is that I think there could be a bit more in the way of arch support. That said, my everyday shoes are Dansko Professionals, so I'm used to LOTS of arch support. Zappos customer service was top notch, I ordered these 12/7/08 and got them 12/9/08.

So, wow. I just pulled these out of the box and put them on and I am not sure I'm ever going to take them off. The leather is amazingly soft; these fit perfectly around my muscular calves, and accommodate my custom orthotics perfectly. I found the inserts that came in the boots kind of uncomfortable, so I'm glad my orthotics fit with no problems. I think I could probably walk for days in these boots! I ordered my regular size and they are perfect with medium-weight socks. Also the fleece lining is very cozy :)

Your boots are just what I was looking for. We go out to the city often and are dressed up for dinner. We walk everywhere, so I needed a boot that I could wear with a dress as well as pants and keep me warm. These boots will look very good with both as well as with jeans. I have a very hard time with shoes/boots fitting my foot as I have a very narrow and long foot (9.5 N). Your boots are very right-on to my size and they are very comfortable. Thank you for coming through for me once again. I love Zappos!

I'm a little surprised at all the 5 star reviews, but I suppose I shouldn't be because these are good value for money. I brought them for a year of snow in Helsinki--yes, Finland--and they've really done quite well: warm, waterproof, and good traction. They're not as high quality as top-end snow boots--for example, I had a small spot where I had to reglue a seam--but they are fabulous for a snow boot. Also, be aware that if you're buying them for snow, they're probably only good for 1 year, because the traction on the sole will have smoothed out too much by the end.

Good utility boot - These boots are comfortable and keep my feet dry. My feet tend to run towards narrow, so they're a little roomy and fit better with a pair of footies.

Nice boots but not narrow - I normally wear a 9 narrow and that's what I ordered. They did not seem narrow enough and a little big. So I gave them away.

Not a soft insole - I was really hoping these boots would have a good insole. They don't. The fit was a bit tight, but understand I have feet that require soft insoles and toe room. If you aren't concerned about the insole, then you'll like these boots for everyday.

Trotters Blizzard - I just got these today, but have to return them. I usually wear an 8 1/2 or 9, depending on the shoe. I ordered the 8 1/2 narrow. (My foot is actually a slim, so sometimes a narrow works and sometimes it doesn't.) The 8 1/2 was too short for me, my toes were at the end. I'm not reordering, however, because the heel was too roomy for me and I could step right out of the boot. On the positive side, it looked pretty good for a snowboot. I really wish it would have fit me. If you need a "slim" instead of a "narrow", then this isn't the boot for you.

I bought these boots for walking in the rain. I am satisfied with the shoe fit overall...they look nice and keep you warm and dry. The width (2E) fits me very well but the calf is almost too small - I can forget about tucking my pants inside! My heel was rubbed raw on my right foot. So not a perfect experience but adequate ...attractive casual shoes.

Great for bad weather - I had these shipped up to Boston in Feb. because I was going to be up there for a week and didn't want to have to travel with them. They were great for the bad weather. Very warm (but not TOO warm). Very water resistant. Good traction. I wore them with leggings and jeans tucked in.

Looks and feels good - I like the stone color, I can tuck in my pants, as long as they're not too bulky. I think it's pretty true to size. One reason I got these is the ease of putting on with the side zipper instead of laces or buckles. (The side buckle is decorative) I have only worn them a couple times, but like them a lot, they're very comfortable. I'm not sure how warm they'll keep my feet in really cold weather though.

Not a bad shoe - They are warm and snug. I wouldn't recommend walking long distances in them (They were my only shoe in NYC for a weekend and they probably weren't the best choice for days of walking:0). They do lack a bit of support, but a nice insole does the trick. Overall I like the shoes.
