These boots are fantastic. Superbly comfortable and stylish, a rare combo! Didn't think I'd get it in time for my overseas trip. Zappos came through! Got it within a day even though i picked 5 day shipping method. Can't praise the service enough..

This product is of very poor quality and made of poor materials. The pull tab on the back of the boot tore as I was trying them on and with it ripped portion of the interior liner. I was very disappointed and returned them for a store credit.

I love these boots. I wear them quite a bit, and am always getting compliments, and people asking where I got them. They look good either wearing with pants, or shorts. The distressed look was a little intense, and they appear pretty light, and honestly, the color tends to get scuffed off as you wear them, but I find it adds a bit of character. Very comfy and versatile. Think I'm gonna buy the brown ones today.

Type Z Timmy - These boots are hands down the BEST footwear I have bought in a year at least! They are out of the box comfortable, feel good for extended wear; I've hardly taken them off in 3 weeks! Besides the comfort they are really cute; just the right amount of attitude! I like that they look a bit worn, and it makes the leather extremely soft. I would buy these again and again and again!!!

This is my 5th pair (4 brown, 1 black) and I cannot say enough about them. About the time I wear a pair out you get another shipment in. Don't stop selling these. As for the whiners reviewing, you can usually get a pair on sale. Hate to tell you but that is a cheap pair of shoes if they only last 6 months. I have gotten more compliments on these than my more expensive American made Allen Edmonds shoes and they are as comfortable. These are made in Portugal and are decent made. The finish rubs off, you put more polish on and they look aged and comfortable. The side zip is great for an old man like me, less bending.

In less than 24 hours after ordering, these boots are already on my feet, and they feel awesome. I read the reviews about the weird coloring, so I went with the brown and they look exactly as pictured, a nice medium/dark brown. Maybe they adjusted their coloring formula on the second batch? I'll probably order a pair of blacks when my size comes back up and if they're as good as they look in the picture, then I'll keep them, too. Leather is super soft and flexible; maybe a little too soft to last as long as I hope, but we will see. Get a set of insoles and you'll be set. I take off one star only for the buckle on the heel; seems a bit overkill and unnecessary. Other than that, my new favorite pair of shoes hands down.

I waited months for these to come back into stock. When they did I snapped them up. They are the coolest looking, most comfortable shoes I've ever purchased. Really soft leather. Light in weight. I returned another pair of boots that looked pretty cool only to discover them to be basically cardboard with a thin skin of a leather-like material. And they were relatively expensive. I'm so happy I waited for the Timmy. You'll be very happy with these. Compliments every time you were them. True to size and width in my case.

The "it" boot. Now you all were right about the quick delivery. Bought them at 6 pm yesterday, returned home at 445 pm today and they were waiting for me, that's fast Zappos, that's real fast. This boot is really stylish and modern for the macho guy that doesn't want to claim that he's really a metrosexual. I got the black ones and they do look as advertised. If you ask me they look better. As for the tightness, what I did was I adjusted the shoe laces to fit me. It's still pretty snug so I guess if your feet are super wide then this is not your boot. For me it's just fine. I've been looking for the right boot for a while now and I think I found it in these bad boys.

Shoes are so rad. First off, the shoes got to my house the next day, which is worth 5 stars all in its own. I have them on right now and I do like them a lot, a bit tight very stylish. I wear 13, but they make my foot appear smaller.

These boots - In my life, these are the second pair of boots I've ever owned. I've wanted to wear more boots, on the account of how tough I am on my shoes. But I also hold fashion at high regard, and most good looking boots are not very functional, and most functional boots aren't very fashionable. This boot was made for me. Light, tough, and I can't tell you how many compliments I've gotten on their peculiar style. The strap is a bit nonfunctional and the leather has started to stretch, but considering how often I wear them, they've been very good to me. Do take into account other reviewers comments on the colors; they are a bit off from the photos.

I recently got these shoes as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. They weren't the shoes I picked out for him, ( I picked out some really cozy uggs to keep him warm through the snow storm, but they didn't appeal to him) so I told him to pick out whatever he liked the most, and this was it. He wears them all the time, and they look cool too. The leather is a little on the thin side, and they don't have much support, but like me, he's very fashion savvy, and style can definitely outweigh functionality and comfort.

As promised - The look and style are great - the boots are extremely lightweight so your feet stay much cooler than other brands - side zipper provides easy access - overall better than I thought they would be - would like to order a second pair!

Great airport boots - These boots rock, because they are so easy to take on and off (which is wonderful at the airport these days!). They look wonderful, very soft immediately. They do fit a bit narrow though.

I love this boot, the look and the color. Unfortunately my feet are too wide for this one, much to my chagrin. The size seemed right, but the width was rather tight. I wore these around for several hours hoping that they would get comfortable, but they squeezed my feet to the point where they were uncomfortable. I love the look and I love Zappos and will definitely continue purchasing shoes from them after this.

This boot has a style all its own. I wanted a boot that was workman like but with a slight western style to them. I saw this boot and ordered it on the spot. Exactly like I wanted. The boot does look more like a dark brown because of the worn leather. But it fits any look you want, extremely fashionable.

Real Deal - Nice boots, good color. I added oil dressing to mine after I got them; that beefed them up a little. Very comfortable from the start. Fast delivery too.

A Cool Boot - These boots are pretty cool. I got the silver first because the brown was out in my size. When the new shipment hit, I picked up two pairs in brown. Out of the box the color isn't that great, but it's the kind of leather that will improve with a little age and polish. Fit is perfect and comfortable. Another good design by Zappos.

I bought the brown after reading that the black was more silver and I loved the look of these boots! The color is bit lighter than pictured. Very supple leather and great construction all around, loved the look of the metal hardware. They were, unfortunately, too narrow for my largish feet (US Men’s 13-14) in the toe so I had to return them but I'll be using the store credit immediately! I love Zappos!

Great boot - The look is great. I have the brown version, and the weathering looks natural. Those with the black ones said they appeared more silver than they expected, but the brown looks exactly like the picture. The outer dimensions are smaller than I imagined, it's not a big clompy boot. If you wear with long pants it looks like a tight leather shoe. Soles are comfy, and very flexible, but too thin for my taste. I have pretty sensitive feet, so I put insoles in almost all my shoes. The leather is very supple and stretches to fit my feet well, I'm a little wide. After only the second wearing, it's broken in significantly. You'd probably do well to go half or a full size larger than your usual shoe, it's a snug fit.

These shoes rule! Honestly, I think I would have felt alright paying about $300 dollars for these shoes. They are beautiful, and even when they start getting a little bit scuffed, it doesn't look out of place. They are comfortable, stylish, and easy to put on... really worth it.

Unique and Comfy Boot - Believe me, I searched high and low for a similar style when these were out of stock (which was a while) and there isn't much that didn't cost well over $300. These garner regular attention while not being over the top. Hopefully Type Z can keep up production in the future. As always, Zappos customer service is second to none. After making every experience I've had with them right, they will get my business because even if they aren't the cheapest, they are by far the best value.

Very nice for the $$ Very nice boot. I strayed away from the black because most reviews here said they look more silver. I was a little worried the brown would be different than pictured. Once they showed up they were very close to the pictured color. Maybe a little lighter. Super soft and comfortable. I wear a 10.5 normally but went with a 10 since there are no half sizes and they fit just fine.
