Love these boots! I'm the sort of person that walks everywhere and anywhere, so I don't buy boots that just look good, they mostly have to feel good. These fit the bill. Wear all day, hike home in the rain, these are warm and waterproof and comfortable. So far, have lasted me two winter seasons of tough wear and still look great. Five stars.

I bought these boots for a trip to NY, NY in the February and they definitely served their purpose. They looked great with bootleg cut jeans, skinny jeans, dresses and skirts. They kept my feet dry when it rained and very warm. After walking all day in them for about 3 days the balls of my feet hurt so I purchased some inserts and that helped greatly, just enough room for the insert and thick socks too. I love these boots.

I really like them. I wish they were a tad bit taller. I've tried 5 or 6 different pairs and these are great. They are a bit narrow so I bought the wide shoe.

Disappointed i

 

These boots will not fit your calves if you have any muscle whatsoever! My calves are 14.5 inches at largest diameter and I could not zip them up, so make sure you measure before you order. They are nice looking but they have to go back. And I usually wear a size 7 and I ordered a 6.5W as others suggested which fit fine on my foot. I am having the hardest time finding a quality boot that zips and fits my muscular calves. I guess they think we all walk around with chicken legs?

This boot was really cute on, but it ran a bit small on my toes. It was also pretty snug to my calf and I couldn't fit jeans or pants under this boot, so I had to return them. I'd say go a half size up if you purchase, and not for those with larger calves!

I wear these boots almost every day, and I think they are perfect, casual, everyday boots. Hold up great in slush and rain... my feet stay dry and the boots don't pick up water stains. They are also comfortable enough to wear all day long. After about a week of breaking in, I can wear these all day long in my job where I am up walking and standing for 12+ hours a day. The adjustable top is nice as it allows me to wear these with leggings or skinny jeans. Bootleg jeans fit in the boots, but are a little bit uncomfortable around the ankle which is tight. I don't usually shell out this much for shoes, but this pair I think are going to last long enough to be worth it! Great everyday boots.

Be aware these boots have a very slender calf area. Could hardly zip them up and when I did, it felt like my blood circulation was being cut off.

This smooth suede boot looks just like the picture and is very comfortable. I was so pleased that it is waterproof. It looks quite long in the toe area when on my feet and unfortunately the shaft was not tall enough for me and I am 5'-7". It is good looking on and somewhat narrow in the calf area with pants tucked in. It was fine for me but might be tight for bigger legs.

I love this boot, but it sure doesn't fit my foot. Unlike my other Timberlands these run very long and narrow, and my feet and short and wide. The 7 1/2 fit me in width, but was way too long. The 7s are snug but too long, and the 6 1/2 are like a vice grip around my foot yet still seemed slightly long. They're so cute, and waterproof, and I love the non-slip soles for winter, but they're going back!

Love! So comfortable immediately! I'm a size 9 and ordered the 9. I agree the toe appears a "tad" too long; however, ankle and calf width are on the snug side with straight leg jeans (need to get skinny jeans now) so I would be afraid to go any smaller. Kept my feet the perfect temperature with my normal thin cotton sock even as I sat for hours in a freezing bus. Love the sole. This boot is comfort and quality down to the brass zippers!

These are way too small. I was so sad. These boots looked great, but they did not fit at all. I am a typical size 9 always, but these were unbelievably tight in the foot and way to tight in the calf. Plus, there was a big ridge at the heel that rubbed and was painful immediately. I really wanted them to work, but had to send them back. Ah, well, at least Zappos has plenty of other similar boots to try.

Gorgeous boots but runs small. If you have a more athletic leg, you may run tight on calf!

I am 5'3" and wear 7.5 or 8. I tried both, and the 7.5 was better, though pretty snug. A very comfortable boot. Love that it's waterproof.

Great boot, solid traction, nice fit, nice casual style, very comfortable, good heel height and shaft height. More rugged than I'm looking for. I'd hoped I could pull off a dressier look with it, but decided to go with Clarks Cardy (and decided, mid-way through search to go for an overall dressier, higher-heeled boot).

I loved loved these boots...nice leather, soft and comfy...except I couldn't even zip them all the way up! I am so sad. I have man calves. I can't find boots that will zip all the way up if they are leather...only certain synthetic boots will zip. And I want leather. Oh well.

I was so excited about these boots, but they are so narrow! I don't ever take a wide size, but these were so uncomfortable there was no way they were going to work out. They felt super stiff too, though that might have eased up after repeated wearing. I'm returning, and I don't think I'll order the wide size because I also don't like how the Timberland logo is repeated on both buckles. The good thing about these boots is that they seem super durable and seem to be made of high quality material. I'm still looking for the perfect boot!

I have slightly wide feet with a bit of a bunion problem, and I have recently come to terms with the fact that I need to limit myself to shoes that come in wide sizes if I don't want to be walking around in pain all day. So these shoes looked promising. I ordered them in a size 9W (my "true" size), and, well - these are awfully narrow for a "wide" cut. That stretch across the bunion zone is really no better than your typical medium-width shoe. And while I don't have terribly wide calves (about 15.5" in circumference), the fit around the calf is definitely snug. Not sure if I could fit anything but socks or stockings in there, and I'm looking for a pair of boots I can wear with pants. Other than that, they do seem like very comfortable shoes; they're just not the right fit for me.

hese boots just arrived at lightening speed thanks to Zappos. After reading all the helpful customer reviews, I ordered the black in 9.5 (my regular shoe size) and the brown in 9. What people say here is true--the toe box is at least a half size long. That said, though, the regular (B) is narrow, perfect for my very narrow foot. The 9 fits like a glove, with a medium weight sock, but I did have to shoe horn my feet in due to the high instep. I expect that it will soon get much easier, as the leather, which is gorgeous, almost immediately starts conforming to your foot. The black was not available in 9; I'm on the fence and may keep it in 9.5, to wear with two pairs of socks then winter hits full force. The foot ankle portion of the boot is narrow and a close fit; the calf was big on me (13" calves); but the boot is such high quality that I'll live with it. The boot has a "biker" look but is streamlined and still feminine looking. Fantastic arch support, wonderful lug-soles, I can tell that I will walk my dogs in these all winter in the snow! Finally, after buying many pairs of boots from Zappos and sending back some, I can say that you do get what you pay for. These boots are a great price for such comfort and quality.

Love, love these boots. I haven't been able to take them off since I got them. Like to buy a black pair so I can match more outfits. It took two wears to stretch out the tight spot on my right foot... after that it feels great!

Couldn't get the boot completely on. It seems to be cut narrow at the top of the foot and with the high heel I couldn't get the boots on. They have great quality and seem like they are very well made.

I love these boots. However they run very narrow and long. I am usually a 8 1/2 medium and those were long and too narrow. I sucked it up and ordered the 8 wide and they fit so much better. So comfortable, beautiful boot that I can wear over jeans. My calves are about 15.5 inches and they fit great! Thanks again Zappos. You never cease to amaze me!

I really love these boots. Was looking for something a little more casual that I can wear over jeggings. I finally found these! Love the soft, leather material. Like others said they are longer and narrower than usual. I am an 8 1/2 but I am wondering if an 8 wide would fit better. Also someone else mentioned that the buckle on the heel digs into the heel of their foot. Does the same thing for me but I am hoping others were right as well that they will stretch and will fix that with a thicker sock. They def make my foot look long and narrow so I guess thats a good thing. The shaft is also accurate. I have calves about 15 1/2 inches and these fit great. I like them so I will keep them! Thanks again Zappos for phenomenal service!

These shoes are great, but they did stretch a full size larger. The waterproofing wore off pretty quickly, so I would recommend using a good amount of waterproofing spray once a month if in frequent inclement weather.
