While these boots are cute, and I was looking forward to wearing them, don't expect them to fit if you have the least bit of wide feet! They also run a little bit long. I ordered the wides and they felt more narrow than some normal width shoes I own. Disappointed, I am.

Really nice looking boot, great brown color and nice leather. Unfortunately even with the buckle all the way loosened the boot did not fit my calf so I must return. The toe does feel narrower and longer than other boots I\'ve worn but the look is really nice. Sorry to have to return them!

These boots are fantastic! They are very practical for our long rainy season, but they also look great and I get compliments every time I wear them. I love the "real" treads on the bottom & the fact that they are waterproof. The fit works great for me -- I got my usual size & do not feel like the toe box is long like others have said in their reviews. Many boots seem too roomy in the calves for me but these are perfect. Good arch support too. I've worn these a lot since getting them and they've held up great so far. I live in the country and can be pretty hard on footwear!

I love the quality and arch support of these boots and they are great in snowy or slushy weather, but the fit is very odd. As other reviews have noted, the toe box is quite long and the fit is narrow. When I ordered my usual size (8) in brown, the width was good for my narrow fit, but it was too long. Then I ordered a size smaller (7.5) in black and the length was good but it was slightly too narrow. I should have gotten the 7.5 wide, but now have been wearing them around trying to stretch them out, even got them professionally stretched. Trust me, they don't stretch that much. Unless you have very narrow feet, go up to a wide.

This boot absolutely runs half a size larger; they will also stretch a bit with wear. That being said, these are excellent everyday cold-weather boots. They\'re warm and comfy, an overall good investment.

I ordered these boots in my usual size, 8.5M. I was worried that they might be too narrow based on other reviews. When I tried them on I discovered them to be too narrow and also too long. I have never worn a wide; shoe, but I am returning these and ordering 1/2 size smaller in the wide. I think they will fit perfect. I wish I had trusted the other reviewers. The 8.5M's felt like a 9N! I love the style and quality of these boots. They are very nice.

These boots are great: the mix I was looking for of stylish and practical, not too heavy on the foot but not flimsy either. A bit tight at first, but they adjusted quickly. The toes are indeed ridiculously long, but I don't care. I have fairly wide calves (16", size 8), and adjusted the top buckle to its loosest hole, and they fit fine.

Beautiful boot but too narrow. I ordered 7.5W (my usual size) and it was too long and way too narrow. Also quite snug across the instep, so stay away if you have a high arch\/instep. Too bad, because they look great!

These are the most comfortable boots I've ever owned! Mostly because I wear high heeled boots all the time. They are perfect weather boots; I can not feel any water from snow or rain with these boots. The tan color is a very nice rich shade and goes well with other dark or neutral colors. Arch support is good, the leather is excellent, waterproof (yes), and the overall style is just what I wanted in a weather boot. I love them!

Great Boots! I have worn a pair of short Timberland boots for years and loved them. Hesitated to buy any others because I needed warmth, traction, weather-resistance and of course, style. These are every bit as nice as my old boots, if not better.

Great Boots! I just got my boots. Have been searching for boots like this for over 2 years. I love them. They are super soft. They do not pinch. The tan is a great color. Now I want the black. I'm a size 8.5 & decided to get this size due to other reviews. They fit great with room, so I didn't need a size 9. It is a great boot to buy.

I love the color and the quality of the leather. Also love the rugged sole and the fact that these are waterproof. I\'ve worn them in the rain and they kept my feet warm and dry. I have small ankles and calves, and the fit is fine. I use the buckle at the top to adjust the calf so that the boot isn\'t way too big. \r\n\r\nI am disappointed, however, at how much they stretched out in the foot in one day of wear. The fit felt perfect when I tried them on at home. But after a day of heavy walking I\'m wishing that I had ordered a half size smaller. Also, the arch support is just okay, not as good as other Timberlands I\'ve had.

The look of the boot is a bit masculine. Exactly what I was looking for! They are a bit narrow in the foot, but I ordered a half size smaller. I usually wear a 9 in boots, but got an 8.5 because of the reviews. Glad I did. They were tough to get on the first time, but after a couple of times of taking them off and on I can tell they will stretch out to perfection in no time.

I love the look of these boots, but for those of you with wide calves, choose another boot. Although the circumference is supposed to be 16.25", they did not fit my 14.5-15" calves. (Maybe because I'm short and my calves are widest too far down the leg.) Anyway, I have ordered the lace up version and hopefully that will do the trick.

I bought these boots for myself for Christmas to wear on my motorcycle and I absolutely love them. They are warm, comfy, and versatile. I wear them with jeans, and with dresses for an edgy look that's still stylish. I bought these in a wide size and they were still a little snug for a while but quickly broke in. I can't wait til the hot summer weather is over so I can start wearing them again!

Beautiful boots. Love the tan color! Goes with a lot of outfits...skirts (dressy casual), jeans etc. It is also very comfortable. My calves typically fit most boots, I found it snug with these boots...but it still fits. The quality of these boots is great, very well made. I have always been a fan of Timberland and will continue to be.

OMG! These are the best boots I have ever owned. Outstanding in wet cold weather and do not need breaking in. Walked all over Boston the first week I owned them. Amazing, bought two colors and both get used frequently. I have little feet and slim calves, they work well for me.

An odd fit - I was excited when I found these because they looked nice enough for city wear, but rugged enough to wear around a ranch on a rainy day, and the price was good. I was really disappointed when they came; they fit wrong all over. My calf is about 15 inches around, and I have a wide size 7 foot. I could hardly get them zipped, and the ankle felt really tight, too. The foot felt comfortable enough, but the boots were really long in the toe, giving the whole thing a sort of odd cowboy boot look. They made my feet look huge, especially when I tried them on under jeans. I returned the boots and will probably spring for Fryes instead.

Great boots - I bought a half size larger than usual, and they fit very well. Narrow in the ankles, true to size in the foot, and they break in and open up in the calf. My only complaint is the finish. I have it in black, and they aren't super shiny (I need to polish) and would have preferred that kind of finish. Otherwise, super stylish with jeans or skirts.

I love these boots! I love these boots so much I would buy another pair now if they were available (and I've only had mine for 6 weeks). They were comfortable from the first time I put them on and they offer better arch support than nearly any other shoe I own. They are close-fitting with heavy socks. And they look fantastic!

Love my boots! I did some research prior to buying these boots, mostly because of the room in the calf area. These do not fit me completely YET, but I just need to get my lazy rear in gear and once I do some exercise, I am sure they will. :) Great looking sexy boot. Only wish they listed the calf circumference. Probably would have done the exercise PRIOR to buying (right).

Best Boots Ever!!!!!! LOVE!!!! I bought the brown pair, and loved them so much I had to have the black as well. Other reviews seem to complain about the narrow width and calf- it makes me wonder just what their legs look like! I have a very large muscley calf (16"!) and usually can't wear tall boots at all, but the gusset on these allowed for a lot of stretch- I was comfortable in them even through my last pregnancy. I have very wide feet and usually have to wear a (too long for me) size ten, but these seem to be wider width than other brands. I got the medium width, and fit happily into a 9.5. They're not quite dressy enough for the office, but are comfortable the whole way to and from - the perfect "commute boot". These look great with my suits and dresses, a much better alternative to the sneakers-and-suit look that we working city girls have to resort to for comfort. They are my weekend staples as well, and are great for walking around the city and running after my two sons in the park. I have worn these every day for more than two years, and they are still as comfortable as when I first put them on. The brown has a more weathered look than the black, but that's probably because I wear them more often. I honestly can't recommend these highly enough- I will probably be stockpiling them in five years when mine finally die!

Great boots! Warm, comfortable for walking and great looking. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase! Size runs a tad large. which is great for wearing a heavy sock with a winter boot. Got lots of compliments on the look too!

Almost great timberland boots - Wanting a pair of winter boots and knowing the quality of Timberland, I ordered these and overall I am very satisfied with them. The craftsmanship is everything you would expect at this price point: rugged, durable, handsome. However, I find the shaft is quite narrow even with the gusset let out. I walk a lot; I have well developed gams and can barely get these boots zipped. Oh, yes, the leather eventually stretches a bit and now I can get them zipped over very thin winter long johns. Hopefully it will stretch a bit more. Another inch in the shaft would be most welcome for me. They offer great traction on snow not so much on ice. Waterproof? Hmmm...I used Sno Seal on mine. It darkens the leather somewhat but protects it and keeps the water out. This is an accessory item that Zappos should sell. Except for the narrow shaft, these boots are extremely comfortable and have been from the first moment I put them on (an unusual quality in boots in my opinion). I have worn them all day with no problem. I would have preferred them in black but black was not offered. The look is rugged chic, appropriate for winter boots in Chicago. I would buy these boots again. Timberland: improve the waterproofing, offer black and increase the shaft width and you will have a 5 star product.
