These boots do NOT, in fact, tend toward a narrow width. I wear average width shoes and, if anything, have slightly wide feet with a high arch and these fit wonderfully. They are supportive, comfortable, attractive, and the color is so indeterminate that I can wear them with many colors of clothing. I like the slight spaceman appearance of these boots. The leather is super soft. I am really glad I bought them.

How can this boot have five stars? I do NOT have a high instep and I had to pry my feet into them. No, they are not too small. Once I actually got them on my feet, they weren't bad in the comfort department, but one shoe felt smaller than the other, so much so that I checked the size on each shoe to ensure they were the same. And the leather? Wow! This shoe is pricey and the leather is hard and looks like plastic. I love this brand, but not this shoe.

These boots arrived last night, and I have only taken them off to sleep. Honest. I even took a nap in them. \r\n\r\nThat\'s not just because they\'re comfortable, which they are -- really. My feet don\'t want to be without them. It\'s also because they\'re stylish. Every time I look down at my feet, or pass a full-length mirror, I feel a little thrill -- they look so cool! \r\n\r\nI am in love with them.\r\n\r\nThe color goes with brown and black. It\'s very unique, but not weird. The seams on the front are flattering to the wide foot. The arch support is superb.\r\n\r\nI have odd feet. I broke my left foot decades ago, and it never healed right, so it\'s bigger than the other. Both feet suffer from plantar fasciitis. But both feet feel great in the Tellins. I couldn\'t be happier.

I felt a little hesitant about buying these boots because of the price, but I\'m really glad I did. Immediately after buying them, I was in New York City for 5 days during a winter snowstorm. I had no issues wearing them right out of the box, and my feet were consistently comfortable, warm, and dry. Appearance-wise, these boots go with everything. Highly recommended.

I got these boots 4 days ago and I've worn them every day since. They are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned, with a soft and padded insole and great arch support. I wouldn't say they are rain boots, but they have kept my feet warm and dry over the past few rainy days. The color is great, sort of a dark metallic gray that seems to go with everything. These are sure to be my everyday shoe for fall and winter.

Love them. After 2 years suddenly my size was available. Fit narrow feet very well. No break in time. Walked all over Europe. Toes spread out and are not cramped. Only one issue, right shoe is squeaking on certain surfaces. Don't know if it's the insole or what. I had a pair of Dansko boots that did that. Still love them.

Finally found my boots! After multiple returns (sorry, Zappos) I finally found my boots! I've only worn them twice, but have found them to be perfect in every way. They are so comfortable and the arch support is great. Nothing has rubbed the wrong way and even though they are VERY expensive, they were worth it. Now, if they can just hold up to extensive wearing, I'll be even happier. Also, the color is great. It's a mix between black, grey and bronze so you can really wear them with lots of clothing options.

A beautiful boot. Is a pearly black-gray. The swirl stitching adds to the look and also elongates the foot. The size 7(38) is a good fit with plenty of room for mid-weight sock. I usually wear 7-7.5. Fits nicely under jeans and I plan to wear with leggings and skirts. If you are looking for a functional leather boot, this one is a classic. As usual Zappos provided phenomenal service.

I wanted so badly to keep these boots. They are beautiful to look at and beautifully made. I'm a size 11, though, and they were just too short. Please, please, Naot, make these in a size 43. There are plenty of us out here.

I've had these for a year now. I love everything about them, but one shoe squeaks something awful. It's kind of maddening, actually, and thus I wear them a lot less than I'd like. In fact, I almost never wear them! Anyone know how to get rid of the squeak?

Review for Zappos Rewards Points
(What's this?)

Wendy A

from Albuquerque

I'm going to keep them around for a little while because I hate the thought of actually returning these boots. They were perhaps the most comfortable boots I'd ever put on in terms of insole support. Alas, my toe brushes the front of the boot and will surely bruise if I try to walk the miles I'd love to in them. If only the heel was held in place a little better against the back of the boot; perhaps my toes wouldn't be so compelled toward the front. So, so sad that I finally found the perfect comfort, but the largest size available is still not large enough... Story of my life; I wear a size 12. I ordered a size 43, which usually corresponds well to the American 12 (Unlike the 42, which Dansko and many other brands try to pawn off as a size-12 equivalent). In this boot's case, the 43 is definitely more like a typical 42. Surprising, the variation in reviews of "true-to-size?"... Maybe mine is just a problem with the larger boots?

This is the second pair that I returned due to defects! I felt unjustified to have to drive to the post office twice to return shoes. My confidence on Zappos' quality control dropped. I am going to give it a third try as I really like these shoes.

Like so many other happy Naot wearers, I use orthotics to correct pronation which over the years led to plantar fasciitis. My podiatrist told me I'd have to resign myself to wearing "ugly shoes." (He had never seen a pair of Naots.) When I brought in my pair of oxfords based on this same Shell footbed, he flexed one, turned it this way and that, and pronounced it good. "This," he said, "is how all shoes should be made." He explained that a buoyant but relatively stiff bottom most efficiently transferred one's walking motion into forward thrust. Tellin, Oyster, and Cruise are all built on the same footbed. If you have foot problems but still want to look fashionable, these should be your go-to footwear. I have Oyster in toffee and also in black (the black is low-gloss, toffee is matte). I also have Tellin in the black pearl, which manages to go with a wide variety of pants colors. All three of these boots are unrivaled for all-day comfort, around town or out walking the dog. Fashion-wise, Oyster has a toeline midseam ending in a wing-tip. Tellin sports concentric curves coming inwards from the toe. I find both styles attractive. My only problem with Naot removable-footbed boots? I wish they came in more colors. I'd have one of each.

Love everything about this boot - waterproof, warm, Naot has best fit of all manufacturers. I have deformed foot left by bunionectomy gone bad, but one reviewer didn't like these boots because of the style. They did not flatter her feet. True. The stitching is all wrong and does not flatter your feet. However, I need comfort, warmth, and waterproof so I kept them. I have about 6 pair of other Naot shoes. One day a lady in Costco's in Birmingham AL stopped and asked me about the real stylish "tennis shoes" I had on by Naot. So there.

These little boots are great. Very comfortable right out of the box, good support, interesting styling. I took them brand new on a trip to Spain and they were perfect for traveling, lots of walking, light weight. I am very happy to have them on my feet home and abroad!

I love this boot. I wore the Naot Cruise almost everyday last winter and it is still in great shape. I love its comfort, durability and style. The Tellin is pretty much the same boot with different exterior detailing. I love the metallic finish and brown stitches, which make it look either blackish or brownish depending on what I'm wearing, so it goes with everything. I am looking forward to the cooler weather so I can wear both of these great boots.

Lovin Them - The boots feel great and look wonderful at the same time. The color is a real neutral and I am able to wear them with just about anything. I will take them to my podiatrist and she will pull out the removable footbed and beef them up in the areas where I need more support for my feet that have arthritis. Just lovin them.

Great everyday boot! This book is exceptionally comfortable, provides excellent support and seems to wear very well. The mottled look of the leather of this particular style is also great because it coordinates so well with other colors/textures. The style is very cute, but not too “cute-sie”. A perfect boot in my book if you are on your feet a lot and want a durable yet casually stylish shoe.

Review for Zappos Rewards Points
(What's this?)

Anonymous

 

I had such high hopes for these boots after reading all the glowing reviews, but they just didn't work out for me. I typically wear an 8.5-9, so I tried the size 40 in the Vulcan brown color. I noticed right away that the distressed finish was much more pronounced than I expected, and the two boots looked completely mismatched. I also found the 40 to be way too long on my foot. Back they went, and instead I tried a size 39 in the pearl black color. The 39s were long enough but so much tighter everywhere else, and there was a defect on the inside of one heel that rubbed and poked very badly. I also found that the leather on the shaft of the boot was very stiff. I would have tried to make one size or the other work if not for receiving two defective pairs. I expect much better quality for this price!
