These are great short boots. The leather is very soft and the lining is cushy and soft. The arch support is pretty good. I think the problem with the heel is it's hard plastic and slick. I had mine replaced with rubber and they are fantastic - no problems at all.

The only reason these shoes get any stars overall is that they are just the cutest style ever. That said, they are mass-produced, poorly designed garbage: 1) The heel does not sit flat on the floor when the soles of the shoes are flat on the floor. Other reviewers have speculated that the heal feel unstable because it's narrow, but it's really not that narrow. It's just poorly designed - instead of the heel piece being longer at the back to account for the fact that the foot bed is higher up at that point, it's the same height all around which means that the back of the heel piece is on an angle to the sole, rather than being a continuation of the same line. Because my apartment is carpeted, I didn't realize this until I was out walking to work - too late to return them. They're awkward for both walking and sitting. 2) The dye job is uneven - there are several noticeably darker spots on the leather that look like the dye dripped or oil got on them. The first 2 pairs I ordered had this problem too, not sure why I didn't return pair #3 as well. 2) The lining on the inside of the left shoe is scratchy and has destroyed is all the tights I've worn with it. It's as if whatever makes the material feel like buttery soft leather got burned away in the gluing process. These shoes were a splurge for me and for the price I expected quality, not ruined tights and basic design flaws that make them unduly hard to walk in. It's like Eric Michaels aspires to quality shoes, but settles for inattentive production and sloppy design.

These Ankle boots are awesome! Funniest thing is I was just in Spain, loved their style and had no idea that these were made in Spain till I received them! I have wide feet and find it challenging to spend 8+ hours in any flats let alone a boot with a small heel. On top of that, I always wear a nylon, or trouser sock with all shoes, but surprisingly these have a wonderful leather insole and a felt like upper sole! It is extremely comfortable, super stylish and well made! I have never purchased a pair of shoes online before this and I will definitely be doing this again! Thanks Zappos!

I bought these boots in black 2 years ago and they still look like new. I wear them almost every day, all fall and most of winter and spring. I wear a 10 Wide and these are so soft they stretch beautifully into an elegant and stylish bootie. I mostly wear them with sweater dresses and leggings but they are also cute with skinny jeans. I will need to replace the sole by the end of this season, but I would gladly pay to have that done to save my favorite booties.

These boots are gorgeous! They are made from soft, supple leather, beautifully made. I have seen reviews where people complain about the heel being unstable. I think that is more to do with the person wearing the shoes rather than the shoes themselves. The shoes feel comfortable and the heel is fine. For long hours of wear I do plan on putting in an insert. I got the 38 - I wear a 7-7½. With tights and socks they should fit fine. Without those items they are a tiny bit roomy. I love them. I wish they made these exact same boots in a knee high version too!

These are great looking boots, and they're super comfortable. My only complaint is that something about the heel makes it easy to turn your ankle on slick floors.

The leather is super soft and the boots fit well. They're really comfortable, but could be a little tight in the toe box if you have wider feet.

My daughter selected these booties as a birthday present from me to her. She loves them. Grayish taupe, super soft leather, and she can wear them comfortably all day. And they arrived in less than 24 hours! Amazing! Thank you.

This boot is a Cadillac. The leather is butter soft and sublimely crafted so they feel as if they were custom made. However, I returned them for what is strictly a matter of personal style preference. I was looking for a '20s/'30s vintage style. I don't know if it's just the way the size 11 is cut, but the gathered leather around the buttons on the side stuck out quite a bit further than they look in the photos, giving them more of an '80s vintage look - very New Romantic. I would definitely buy the Eric Michael brand again some day, but the price is too high for me to keep them if I don't love them completely.

I absolutely adore these boots! They are sophisticated and unique and I am very happy with them. I have searched for months for a pair of boots with style that I can wear every day and these haven't let me down yet. The leather is supple and seems to be of very good quality. If I could redesign this shoe, I would give it more ankle support and a wider heel. They are a tad bit wobbly, but hey, if you want nice leather shoes that are as comfortable as sneakers - get Danskos. These are more comfortable than you would expect for boots with heels - I've walked a couple of miles in them and my feet are fine. I am usually a 9.5 or 10 and the 41 fits pretty well; perhaps a tiny bit big, but perfectly with an insert. I tried the 40 and they were just a tad too small.

Oh yes. These are fabulous. I was drawn to them initially because of the unusual styling and the versatile color. I received these as a gift and I just love them! They are really surprisingly comfortable. I'm a full-time mom so many days I wear nothing but my sneakers or other comfy run-around shoes, yet I am perfectly comfortable doing my thing in these as well. I love the soft leather, the fit, the styling. These are so different, yet so wearable. I love them with my skinny jeans, but the nice low height means they're great with boot-cut jeans too. Can't wait to try them with leggings or a skirt.

I adore this boot! I wear an 8 1/2 medium for shoes I plan to wear with stockings, but I have bunions that make most shoes excruciatingly uncomfortable. These have a natural shape across the toe box that nonetheless manages to be extremely cute and dainty looking instead of having that dreaded clunky look. The leather is wonderfully soft, including at the ankle, and although the heel isn't as stable as a wider one would be, neither is it nearly as unstable as a spike heel would be. The boot looks great with skirts--and even with long, wide, dressy pants, it shows enough detail beneath the pants hem to be unusual and fun. I'm about to buy a second pair in another color. I feel as though I could walk in these all day--and that's from a woman who wears running shoes most of the time.

Great little booties! The color is a bit lighter than pictured, and can actually pass as grey or brown, which I like a lot! The heel height is perfect for skirts or pants, and the leather is so soft. The buttons and slouching add a hint of whimsy. I've walked miles in these with no issue - not usually the case for my sensitive tootsies.

The boots were shipped on time and without delay. I love these boots - they fit well and have a narrow heel. A bit tricky to walk on the first time, as the heel is very narrow and it feels like you may lose your balance, but you learn quickly. I love them and will order again from this company.

I love these shoes. They make my feet look more petite than they are...and do this without cramping toes! The small heel dresses up but in total comfort. They are Euro sized, but I think the size is slightly roomier than what I would usually wear after conversion.
