I can't get over how amazing this boot is, because it is so stylish, but is also tough. I always get compliments on it. Can't believe it's waterproof, but it is! It is a little fitted compared to most boots but you can still fit them over your jeans. These are well worth the price because they are durable and you can wear them with so many different kinds of outfits.

I shopped for a long time before I got my tall boots, and I love them! I look for reasons to wear them for just about any occasion -- dress down Fridays, shopping, sightseeing, casual outings. They are stylish, comfortable, and rugged enough for recess duty with kindergartners. I find myself planning my wardrobe around my feet.

Based on other reviews I ordered wide width. I feel that the wide width feels like a normal width. I wear size 9-9 1/2 street shoe and ordered size 9. I might have been able to go with 8 1/2 but these are just fine to accommodate thicker socks if I need to, but still comfortable with normal socks. My calves are 15 1/2" at widest part and I am able to fit skinny jeans inside boot just fine. (Not sure about the normal width) I have tried other boots on and have been unable to fit them over my calves. The boots are warm. Wearing 1 pair of medium weight wool socks when temps were in the teens walking around town I was warm and comfortable. Walking on snowy icy sidewalks I had no problem.

I am in my 3rd winter with these boots. And, while it doesn't need more glowing reviews, I wanted to write one more because I have not fallen for any other boot like this one! It is really waterproof. Have worn it in the Colorado ski mountains and out on very snowy trails in the New Hampshire winter with my dog. They are comfortable, warm, dry, sturdy, have a great grip and a great look. Even 3 years of tough wear later! I highly recommend them.

Cinderella lives in Chicago, because I now believe that shoes can really buy happiness! I love love love these boots. I ordered them in both brown and black on the hunch that they would both be great, and I was right. They run true to size, not too narrow, and so comfy. I am very short, so tall boots can be a tough fit, and these are perfect at a good price.

I love these boots. They fit nicely and were comfy right out of the box. I initially ordered an 8.5, based on all of the reviews saying that they ran small/narrow, but then ended up exchanging them for a size 8 (my true size). Zappos has the best customer service and sent me out the replacement size before I even returned the larger ones. Love Zappos and love these boots.

These are great boots! Timberland is really stepping up their game with these. I thought they might be a little too masculine for me when I ordered them, but they are perfect. Great leather, hardware, and craftsmanship. I ordered a 6½W after reading other reviews about the boot being narrow. 6½ is my normal shoe size, but I probably could have gone half a size down, and the boot is pretty narrow for a wide size. Boots are much lighter than I had expected and very comfortable. Hopefully they will hold up in rain or snow.

Great boots! Good quality and very comfortable. Suggest buying snug as they stretch out, just like all Timberland's do. Perfect fit in the calves as well.

I love this boot! Bought them to wear with jean-leggings mostly and they look great, but they fit close enough to the calf to wear with skirts too. I bought them right before a trip to London and walked long distances in them every day, in freezing cold weather. Sent back the 8 for the 7.5 and those were perfect.

These boots are amazing! I bought them last year and get complements on them almost every time they are on. They are a comfortable and fashionable option for braving the Minnesota weather. And because they are waterproof, I don't feel bad about exposing them to all sorts of weather. Love these boots!

Love these. I've had mine about six weeks, and began wearing them day 1. Felt a tad snug in the heel/around the ankle initially, but quickly relaxed. If I had it to do over again, I might have tried a 9.5 wide (I'm normally a 10 reg., which I got), because they are a bit long-looking in the toe, but the fit feels fine; I just might have bought both sizes to see if I could minimize the length, if that variation still felt good (I now suspect that would have worked for my foot shape). Also, I'm a very muscly size 12 (pant), and the boot's top circumference just barely fit my calf; not a lot of adjustment available if you have a very large calf.

Perfect everyday winter boot - great traction and they are waterproof - but with style. The boot accommodates orthotics. Tested them at home, then wore them for my 2 mile walking commute without a problem. It was about 25F and my feet were warm with thin Smartwool socks on (I have spent a lot of time walking with cold feet in the NY winter). I am normally a 9 medium and find this to be a good fit. Based on reviews, I also tried the 8.5 wide. The 8.5 wide was not too much different - it did look a little daintier. But, I think the smaller shoe shifts one's balancing point a bit forward on the toes - so I decided to keep my normal size. I decided to keep the brown color (looks like a riding boot) - the black is also nice but a bit more aggressive - police/biker style boot. I find I can wear them with pants tucked in or not - both are comfortable.

By far the most comfy boots I have ever had. Well made, tough, but looks cute with jeans or thick tights and a short skirt. I walked all over Japan in these, and have worn them every day on my motorcycle for 2 years, in all weather. Now they need resoling, or I may just get another pair. Thanks Timberland for re-issuing these for another season; I was getting worried as I couldn't find them last year.

I am a person who wants the highest quality, good looking and rugged at the same time. Those three things are hard to come by. So after much research, I picked these boots. And of course, Zappos' immediate gratification helps as well when making my final decision. I live in Jackson Hole, and although I would not use them for snow above ankle high, they have already been tested in snow and rain. So far they are 100 percent waterproof. I liked the way they looked on line and they looked exactly as shown when received. Initially, the boot felt tight around the ankle and difficult to pull on which I didn't like because I am usually running late and do not want to have to worry about my shoes. However, it felt fine around my calf which can be described as athletic. After deliberating on the next size up to accommodate the heel and socks, I decided against it and wore them to work all day for 10 hours. I was pleasantly surprised. The next time I put them on, they had stretched, but not too much. Now they fit perfectly. I love them and get a ton of compliments from everyone. They can easily go from riding horses to work with a nice pair of pants or skirt. It really fits the western lifestyle of someone who wants to be stylish, yet functional.

Comfortable right out of box, good arch support, good traction, had to return as calf width was smaller than listed in description. Gave it five stars - boot was great, just didn't fit my calf. As always, Zappos service was top notch!

Nice boots, but the footbed in the bunion area is very snug. It's more like a C width than a D width.

I am very happy with my new purchase. At heart, they are durable and rugged boots with a simple and elegant design. Highly comfortable. My only critique is that I had to order half a size larger, as they were very tight, both in the shoe and calf.

Love these boots - I love these boots! So comfortable. I ordered a W and they are true to width. They definitely run big so may need to order a 1/2 size smaller if ordering a W width. But overall, they are beautiful boots and I get tons of compliments!

Love them - Great look, great sole. Fit length wise but maybe I should have gotten the wider fit--I’ve put a boot stretcher in for a bit and now they fit perfect. Jeans don't fit well into the boot but they still rock and look great with skirts.

Love them - I had already purchased the black ones last year and wore them numerous times dressed up or down. They still look very nice and they are very comfortable! I received many compliments wearing them. So this fall I decided to buy the dark brown ones as well and I am very happy I did. They are the same high quality leather and they are great in our Washington State rainy weather.

Order a size smaller and wider - These shoes are very long and narrow. I had to order a full size smaller and wider. I am thrilled that they fit my athletic calves and have a very comfortable sturdy sole. They are a little stiff in the foot and I hope they break in a little as I wear them.
