Beautiful, comfortable boot! This is a bit weird, but I have dreams in which I "design" shoes & sometimes clothes. I had actually dreamed this shoe about two months ago (hadn't heard of Zappos at that time), even drew a picture of it! Of course when I saw it, had to have it. Problem is I wear 9 & 1/2, the 41 is a bit long. I am ordering the 40, but I suspect it will be too tight across the instep, but am going to try it! One way or the other am keeping one of them!

Stylish, good quality, excellent fit. The three things in the title of my review are what I look for in a shoe, or, in this case a bootie. I wear orthotics all the time, so it's not hard to tell I have 'trouble feet'. I am used to spending a lot more on shoes, more like the $200 and up range, in order to have style, quality and comfort, but I tried this pair of Rieker as my first based on a friend's recommendation. I am very pleased I did. The bootie is very cute, goes will all kinds of things and can be worn anywhere, and has already garnered a compliment or two. I just got them today while at work and threw them on for their first try-on. Perfect! For me, there has been zero break in time. I will surely look to buy Riekers in the future. More, Zappos is the only place I buy shoes since years, now.

This boot runs a little large, but a half-size smaller would probably work. I have a similar Rieker boot (the Sarah 96) that I like a lot because it's comfortable & has worn well. Note that the chocolate leather is very dark. Think semi-sweet chocolate.

Bought two pair of these for my wife; they fit great, and she loves the feel and construction. What can you say except Zappos is the only place to buy. Shoes, purses, clothes; price the same or lower as the department stores; but no taxes, crowds or attitudes. Seems like as soon as you place your order, it's on your door step. Free shipping, no hassle on returns (free also). Can't get any better than that!

I had never owned a pair of Rieker's but I loved the look of the shoe, so I took a chance. I love these shoes! They are very comfortable through hours of walking and standing. They are my shoes of choice when I have a 12 hour day planned with multiple stops. Soft leather, perfect heel height, would highly recommend them.

Love the look of the shoe, very comfortable but not for extensive walking. No cushioning in the bottom of the shoe, had to purchase an insert and then they were great. A minor issue for a smart looking shoe. Nice with pants or tights and a skirt.

Trying to decide which one I liked best and fit most comfortable, I had ordered 2 different pairs of shoes of the same size and width from the same maker - Rieker. While this one felt instantly comfortable the other one was too tight. I love Zappos return policy which makes this experimental shopping easy and affordable.

I wanted some dark brown ankle boots/shoes to wear with casual and dressier pants, and these shoes are perfect. I tend to need wide widths in some shoe styles, but when I tried this standard width shoe on, it fit perfectly. They're comfortable and perfect for what I needed.

I needed this shoe for a Victorian Tea ASAP. This was my first time buying through this company. The service I got was excellent. I had to change my shoe size twice. They still got the shoes to me on time! Excellent service and the people were so friendly. Amazing considering how some of the other companies treat their customers. I'm sold. I also like the quality of this brand.

Rieker's 56572 Sarah 72 - Great shoe - stylish but not "clunky"! I've had several pair of Rieker shoes through the years - they have been well made, comfortable and light weight. The best place to buy shoes is Zappos! Awesome service!

56572 Rieker Sarah 72 - I was looking for low heeled boots and came across the Rieker brand. I love the low heel. I wanted a shoe/boot to wear with jeans for the winter. I usually wear a 10M. These shoes run about a half size larger. I didn't exchange for the half size smaller though, I just wear thicker sox. The shoes are really comfortable and I love the way they look with my jeans. I just can't wear high heeled boots anymore. I wear low heeled shoes for work and the high heels are way too uncomfortable. I'm going to order another pair of Riekers, just a half size smaller.

Wondered at first if they had enough support. Well, not the cushiest shoe I've ever had, but you know? After walking around in them for an outing of dinner and grocery shopping, my feet were fine. They looked adorable with a short skirt and tights. Very glad I bought these and enjoying them!

While they didn't work for me (the style didn't really go with what I usually wear), these shoes seemed super comfortable which I have found to be true of all Rieker shoes I've tried so far. Their shoes are well-constructed and very easy on your feet, thoroughly recommended.

Great looking shoes! When I tried them on they were quite large. I normally wear a 9.5 so I got the 41, which turned out to be to large especially with dress socks. I will be trading them for a smaller size.

I love these shoes. I have owned them for over a year and they have worn so well. They have nice soft leather that form nicely to your feet. The sole is incredibly light weight with a nice anti-slip rubber, they are so easy to walk in for extended periods of time. I bought them in black, but I would buy more if they had some fun colors and slightly different versions.

I love these shoes, but they were too tight on the foot with a bunion. I wear a medium 8.5. On the good foot, they were a bit narrow, but OK. The length was perfect. They are light and feminine.

I love these shoes. They are well made, fit perfectly, and look great! One major problem is the zipper on the left shoe does not work, and this is the last pair in my size that Zappos has! I am so sorry to return them.

I love this shoe! It was very comfortable. I have neuropathy and sometimes my balance is off. I have noticed wearing Rieker shoes, they hug my heel and give me stability. I'm a Rieker chick for life! WhooHoo!

Very comfortable - I don't usually wear any shoes with a heel because I walk a lot and comfort is very important. The heel is the perfect height. It's dressy and feminine. I am finding excuses to wear them.
