This boot is great if you need a rugged looking waterproof boot. It does run long and narrow like others stated. I'm normally between an 8 1/2- 9M and I ordered the 9 and would return for 8 1/2 W if I was going to keep them. In the end not as dressy with the matte leather as I wanted, so I'm returning.

Love these boots! can't wait to wear them. Very sleek & stylish. H2O proof is definitely a plus. 1st time ever a Timberland boot was true to size. I take size 8 & was going to get 8.5 but out of stock, so I had to have them. Happy I did! Size is fine & definitely room for socks. These should not hurt my feet first few times wearing (like all my other Timberlands). Love Zappos customer service. 5 stars!

Amazing! Fit almost perfectly. I would be OK with a little less wiggle room in the calf, but they're about as good as it gets when you have size 10 feet and normal/small-ish calves.

These boots are really nice; they fit me well in the foot, and were extremely comfortable there. The leather is good quality, supple and matte, not shiny, very much like they are pictured here. But very unfortunately, the shaft circumference is not what it says in the description, so be aware of this. My left calf is wider than my right and measures 15 at the widest part. The description says these boots are 16.25 in circumference, which should leave me room for skinny jeans inside, but in reality they are 14.25. I measured, so I'm sure of this. I had to return them and was very disappointed because they were awesome in every other way. Zappos, please correct this error in the description.

These boots are fabulous! I am not sure what's up with the reviews that say the calf is too narrow...I have wide calves and I was worried about them fitting but they fit perfectly with room for skinny jeans even! These are comfortable and waterproof, rugged but still nice enough to wear with a dress. I love them. They may run a little big. I take between a 9 and a 9.5; I ordered the 9.5 wide and they are perfect in width but a teeny bit long. It doesn't bother me enough to return them but I could have gotten away with the 9 for sure.

Love, love LOVE these boots! If you are often between sizes, go with the smaller size. Waterproof, warm in snow, and still good-looking to wear out in the evening. They stretch some, so don't be alarmed if they are snug at first. An outstanding choice if you are faced with a lot of wet and/or cold weather.

Compliments and comfort! I have had these boots for a year and a half. I wore them during school when I had to walk around campus, and they were great. Very comfortable and stylish. I never slipped on any snow or ice. What surprised me was this Winter I wore them to the office! I wore them over skinny black corduroys and they looked dressed up. Such a rugged boot, but still dressy! Amazing. People compliment me on them every time I wear them, men and women. Very much worth the price.

I purchased this boot as a replacement for the same pair I had, which, after over 3 years, had a zipper which "jumped off the track" on one of them. Not able to be repaired by the local cobbler, I am grateful to find them again on Zappos. These boots are comfortable, attractive and waterproof. A perfect combination. Get many compliments but more importantly, they stand up to regular, frequent use. They are my "go to" boot time and time again.

The boot top is very small. I don't have big calves, and I couldn't even zip these. They are really cute, and the leather looks really nice.

Cute boots but definitely not 16.25 circumference. I have 14.5 calves & these wouldn't even zip up. Very disappointing.

Great boot; runs 1/2 size larger (I typically take a 7M, ordered to 6.5W and it fits great). I love the look, the feel and the fact that it's waterproof is great (these boots compete with my Frye boots which cost twice as much, so you do the math).

The arch was way too low on these for me. I couldn't get my foot into the boot. I imagine you would have to have pretty flat feet to get into these comfortably.

Love these boots! They run a bit long and narrow, perfect for my long, narrow feet! They have great treads and are waterproof, so you can look stylish in bad weather. Good quality for a reasonable price.

This was my first purchase with Zappos, and though I've heard great reviews from friends, I was not pleased. The boots have definitely been worn. There's junk sticking to the bottom and part of the leather was worn off so the black part underneath showed. I'm returning them. Also, these do not fit a wide foot and were too tight to fit my 14'' (at the widest part) calves. I couldn't zip them up.

I just received my Timberland boots; I couldn't wait to try them on since I loved the way they looked. I figured they probably won't fit since I like them so much and would be disappointed but...they fit! They fit perfectly and unlike the Keen boots I ordered - these zipped up quite easily even with jeans tucked into them. I was very happy with them. The leather is nice and they are waterproof which I wanted specifically so I could wear them in the snow and rain. I just tried them in the snow walking my dogs and they were great. Great traction and easy to walk in the snow. I am so glad I read the other reviews since that always seems to be the best advice I can find about any shoes on Zappos. I love it! Love these boots and you will too!

Love these boots, but the shaft is way too small. My calves are not at all big, nor are they skinny, but I couldn't even zip these up! There is a DRAMATIC difference between the shaft circumference stated in the description versus what you actually get. Also, similar to other reviewers, these do feel very narrow in the foot and ankle. I have a narrow foot, but I ordered a medium because of the reviews. They still felt very tight, although they'd likely stretch out after a few wears. The style is great and the tread is very strong, I just wish the shaft measurements were more accurate for all sizes.

I love these boots! But after trying them on, I understand the comments about the size better. The width is normal/slightly narrow, but the shape of the toe area is long, providing extra room. I ordered my normal size 9.5, and will return for 9 regular or 9 wide (to give room for a thicker sock or tight)...if they come back in stock! Fingers crossed.

Oh how I tried. I am living in Germany at the moment and was in desperate need of WP black boots and fell in love with these immediately. Alas, they were out of stock in my size/color so I ordered alternates (lots of alternates). Two days later, I got an email that my size was back in stock. I ordered. I tried on. I despaired. I wear a regular 9. They were so long in the toe box. So then I ordered and 8.5. And they were perfect in the length but so tight in the width I broke a sweat trying them on. I love Zappos and hope they won't hold my return of 10, yes 10 pairs of boots with no purchase against me. I have returned everything and am returning to Germany without my fab new boots. Crushed.

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.
