These shoes run 1 to 1.5 sizes too big. I had to return a pair after buying them only 1/2 a size smaller. I normally wear a 10.5, but 9.5 fits perfectly in these. Besides the size issue, these boots are very comfortable, great looking with jeans, and waterproof, which was the main reason I bought them.

Great look, but the hollow rubber soles don't hold up. I wore through mine in just the first couple months.

Comfortable - My wife gave me these boots for x-mas. They are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. I wear a size 12M and could have got by with an 11 1/2M. They are also a bit wide but fine with a thick sock. There is no need to break them in as they are perfect right out of the box. Great with jeans in all types of weather. I have not really tested the waterproof claim, other than walking several miles through the snow & there was no issue with dampness going through the leather. These boots are nice looking and well worth the money.

Very Impressed - My husband loves them. He says they are the most comfortable shoe he has ever worn. These are boots that he would consider getting resoled when necessary. Thank you, it was the best Christmas present in the house!!!

Awesome boot! I am very pleased with this product. It is super comfy (first wear six mile hike) and problem free! I took the advice of others and ordered one size smaller and they were perfect. However, after just a few weeks the stitching on one of the tongues is coming apart. A bit disappointing. I am going to have it repaired because I do think/hope they will last and because they are just so dang comfortable! Outside of the tongue glitch I give these boots an A+.

These are amazing boots! Bought these for my boyfriend and he loves them! Perfect for dressing up or down. He wears a size 12 and I ordered him a 10.5W and they fit him like a glove! As always, Zappos had them delivered in speedy time!

I have flat feet with no arch. I have purchased two sets of shoes this year and all of them hurt my feet badly. I had an old pair of Timberland work shoes that felt comfortable so I searched for the same in walking shoes. I now need to buy buy another pair in a different color. This will be my third pair since I have found what works for my feet and a pair for my son for he has my feet.

Overall, a great boot although I've only had them for a month. I'm on my feet in an ecology lab and in classrooms all day long and the comfort of the boots can not really be matched, never had a problem. They are very light and well cushioned. The ability to layer thicker socks basically means that you have a quality 3 season boot. The sizing on these is correct (i.e. not the poor sizing on Timberland Pro). The leather is waterproof (although I'll be redoing that every so often anyway) but the gussets on the sides of the boot are not closed off. If you submerge the boot above about 1" to 1.5" your feet will be wet, just to let you know in advance.They break in very quickly and take wear quite well. Granted I haven't had them for too long so I don't know about the long range durability. Still, if you are considering them, go for it.

Comfortable and great looking boot. Runs pretty big, had to get a full size smaller to get the right fit. I wore these in some pretty rough weather and they've stood up pretty well so far. Only issue is the leather-based insole stained my socks. Otherwise, great boot.

I bought these boots for the winter and for hiking. They have been great. Waterproof, comfortable and look good. Only problem is the size issue. I normally wear a size 10 but I found 8-1/2 fit me best.

Bought these for my 21 year old son. They were a bit too big for him, but fit my husband who also loved them. So, he kept them and I ordered a second pair for my son. They both love them!

I bought these as a gift for my son. He absolutely loves them for both his job and everyday wear. He will not wear any other brand but Timberland. Timberland and Zappos are both superior and I would highly recommend both to everyone!

Timberland Earthkeepers 6" Leather Boot - This pair of boots feels and looks great, I just got mine so I'm not sure how durable it's gonna be but these are more for light duty. It has a soft sole (although it doesn't seem like it in the photo) gave it a pinch and wondered if it would hold up but they do flex as you move with it pretty good. As they've said no break-in required, really comfortable out of the box and definitely looks good with jeans or khakis (got mine in black). I normally wear a size 9 1/2 followed the review and ordered a half size smaller and it was still big so I returned it and ordered an 8 1/2...still not right, finally ended up ordering a size 8 and at last got it to fit perfectly. So all in all if you like ordering stuff online like I do, I strongly suggest to order at least a full size smaller, so if you do have to exchange it still at least you only have to do it once and not twice like I did or you could test fit it first at your local shoe store. Overall experience with Zappos has been great, they have real good customer service, and I couldn't be happier with their shipping process. I'd definitely come back here again!!!

Great Boots! Very comfortable right out of the box and truly waterproof. I have walked through snow and deep standing water and my feet remained warm and dry. I would highly recommend these boots.

Very comfortable - One of those rare pairs of boots that require no break in. Very comfortable the first time on the feet. Very similar to Timberland Pro series in terms of fit at a significantly reduced weight.

Brands I'd also recommend: Timberland classic boots.

Nice Boots - Very comfy right out of the box. Don't look quite as cool in person as the image online, I think because the stitching contrasts more in the photo but is the same color brown as the leather in reality.

My husband loves these boots - I bought these boots for my husband for Christmas and he loves them. He says they are so comfortable like he's had them for years. He says they feel like they're already worn in. We give them a thumbs up for comfort and style and also the price and fast delivery from Zappos!

Wow - Love this boot. Was looking for a boot in this style for several years before I came across this on-line. Was concerned about purchasing without trying it on but needn't be. Extremely light and comfortable...like walking on pillows. Fits a 1/2 size bigger than other boots I’ve owned. An insole solved that.

Recycling and looking good doing it! These are the best looking boots I've owned in years! The fact that the box they came in was made from recycled materials impressed me, the fact that I only found a couple of pairs of boots that used any recycled materials in the shoes (I think they were all Timberlands) was shocking to me, we’ve all got to do our part. Thanks Timberland for setting the standard, and I might add, you set the bar very high with these boots!
