Love the style and look of this boot, but a black 42 is unavailable and the 41 does not fit my 9.5M feet well. Even with thin socks, it's tight across my (high) arches and around my (skinny) ankles and I could barely close the zipper at the top of my 15" calves. Plenty of room in the toe box and the length is fine, though. For comparison: I have narrow heels and "low volume" feet (i.e., they are thin, or not tall). By the way, the fuzzy lining does cover the top of the foot as well as the leg; maybe Rieker responded to complaints. The boots are hot while I'm trying them on in my 78 degree house. I've never had lined boots like this before and am wondering whether the lining will prevent the boots from stretching as the leather normally would, and whether they will be too hot to wear indoors even in the winter. I'm thinking of keeping them with the idea that they will stretch a little. My Born boots that fit great initially have stretched so much that my feet move around too much in them even with thick socks. How's a gal supposed to know how the boot will fit after wearing it a few weeks? My crystal ball is not working.

These boots do not look like the picture because the leather is quite different. They actually look like the brown boot's leather only in black. Additionally, I have very narrow calves and thought they'd be tighter based on other reviews. This is not the case--they fit like most other boots.

I love these boots! I wanted a sleeker style for winter, that I could wear everyday. I wore them in Wyoming, in the sleet, rain, and snow and bitter cold. After that, Ohio should be fine! They kept me warm and dry with style. I have paired them with jeans, skirts, and semi dressed up long skirt for a funkier look. I am a 9, and they were true to size.

At first I hesitated about buying these boots because of the price, but they are wonderful, and the fine quality means that they will last for years. They are made of soft enough leather to be instantly comfortable; they are warmly lined, and have enough tread so I won't slip. They are the only reason I wish it were snowing in September.

I bought two pairs of Riekers last year and they are my favorite boots. When I saw these online, I thought, hmm....and when I saw that they have fur lining and cool markings on them, like buffalo hide or something, I bought them and now I love them. I am wearing them now and it is raining and my feet will stay warm and dry. They look good with jeans or skirts. I give them 5 stars.

I love this boot! It is so comfortable and very versatile. Not only is it a great winter boot for outdoors in the cold snow, but it looks great and is comfortable enough to wear indoors as well. Highly recommended!

I am a true 8 1/2 and the 40 fits perfect. Boots are very true to size. Boot quality is excellent. Distressed leather is very good quality for price. Excellent boot for cold weather wear. Worn all day and still comfortable. Only negative-calf is snug (I'm 5 8 126 lbs.), but I can still tuck my jeans inside. The expandable elastic (at top) helps a lot. I will definitely by more Rieker products from Zappos!

These boots have a great fit and are very comfortable. I love the sheepskin lining. My only concern is that there is no flap over the zipper like there is on other boots of similar style--I will need to be extra careful that my stockings won\'t get caught in the zipper. Also, I thought that Rieker shoes are made in Germany--on the sole on the boots is stamped in very very small letters \'Made in Morocco.\'

So comfortable! Tried these on after a day of teaching in the wrong shoes and my feet felt no pain. No soreness at all. Tried on other boots same evening and felt every sore spot. Would love to keep these, but the wool lining is extra itchy. If you do not have sensitivity to wool, I recommend getting this boot! Pretty color, very comfortable foot bed, room in calf. Just too much itchy wool.

I was looking for a stylish, brown, leather boot that could withstand the slush of city living and definitely found what I was looking for! The shoe was true to size and is very warm. Be forewarned, the shaft is rather narrow, but is great for my smallish calves. The boot has lived up to it's waterproof description. I have stepped in multiple puddles and my foot has remained dry. Definitely worth the money!

Great boot. I ordered the 6.5 US size and they fit true to size. I have muscular calves but not huge (I've never measured). That being said, I usually have a hard time finding boots that will zip around my calves with pants or jeans tucked in. I was extremely pleased that these did and look great, too. They are rugged looking but not too Harley Davidson-ish. They are casual for sure but not biker. Some reviewers said the black color came in a "crinkled" style - not smooth leather like how the brown color is pictured in the photo and video. I wanted the crinkled leather in black but got smooth leather instead! I still love them as a casual boot. The shearling is wonderful and I love the lug sole. Perfect for bad weather. I'm happy with the purchase even though they are not what I expected.

Great boots. The shaft is not too high and the heel is not too low. Very comfortable, too. I went a half size up for a perfect fit. Unfortunately, they are a bit too warm for what I need, so I will be sending back.

I bought these boots on Friday and they arrived on my doorstep on Monday, with regular ground shipping! Unbelievable - thanks Zappos! I love the boot itself, but it's not as pictured. The pair I received has smooth leather, as opposed to the textured leather in the picture, which is the part I liked most about this boot. They are comfortable, but there is a ridge in the inlay that you can feel midfoot. They are also one full size too big for me. The fit around my calf is absolutely perfect and I love them overall, but without the leather detail they are not quite interesting enough for me to keep them. Very sad to send them back.

These boots are awesome! I am 5'6 with big athletic calves, and they fit great. There is really good traction for the long slippery winters in Jackson Hole, and the warm wool inside the boot keeps my toes super cozy.

These are great boots. They are well made, comfortable, and stylish. The lining is cozy and the fit is just right for me. Most of the boots I try are much too big in the calf, and these are great. They are not tight, but they do no gap and look like galoshes. I highly recommend them.

I already wrote a review. Love the boots, warm stylish, waterproof, comfortable. I got them in brown - really wanted black boots but the black looked wrinkly in the photos. I took a chance and got them also in the black. The black is not so bad. So now I have them in black and brown. Love these boots!

It took me a couple of tries but finally got the perfect size in this boot, which has it all for a good casual winter boot: lug soles, waterproof and warm fleece lining. If your foot is narrow, however, you may find you need a 1/2 size smaller than you usually would. This is compared to what I take in La Canadienne or Ugg. The shaft is just right for me as well as the shoe width (I'm a B, with somewhat muscular calves).

I love these boots! They are warm, waterproof, and comfortable! WIth all the snow we had this year in Boston, these were the perfect boot to have. The great soles help walking in slushy ice, less treacherous. I am so happy I paid the price for these boots. My only regret is that I had to buy the chestnut as the black was not available at the time of my purchase.

I love these boots! True to size and very warm. Flexibility in the calf area is a plus. Boots were comfortable as soon as I put it on. Wish there was a black in my size. The brown color is nice but too rugged for my style. Will have to return these and hopefully wait for the black to be available in my size.

Just received them last night, as another snowstorm hit NYC. Thanks Zappos for the 24 hour turnaround. I needed to replace my old Timberlands (Charles Street style) which seem to have lost all impermeability to water, if that's possible (after 5 years?). These Riekers feel fantastic-very bouncy soles-and kept my feet dry and warm during my commute. I just can't stand the proliferation of rubber boots this season. Warm leather boots with traction are so much more stylish and appropriate for this weather! But I must come down off my soapbox and I am a convert to Rieker!

These boots are super flexible; soft waterproof leather, and a great height for snow. The sole is also great because it seems to have a good grip and it will not be slippery. Super comfortable and WARM, these are boots for snow. Since Rieker is a German brand, I love the fact that they weren't made in China, but Morocco. Gives me an additional guarantee that they will last longer.
