I have a very hard time finding stylish boots that fit me. My feet often fall between regular and wide width, and I have a high instep with a proportionately narrower heel. I ordered a 9 Wide. These are hands down the most comfortable, fashionable boots I've had, so much so that I wished the designer made other types of shoes--I'd buy 'em in a heartbeat. Although I share other reviewers' doubts about how long the zipper will last, they are just soo comfortable! I don't usually wear heels either, so me finding them so comfortable is even more amazing.

These are adorable and would look great with long full skirt, jeans or pants but for me comfort is everything and these are just not. The width was great but it felt like barely anything but a hard sole between my foot and the floor, there is zero padding in the forefoot area where I have a neuroma so back they gos. Of course Zappos is fabulous.

I love the boots! The site could be improved. First pair I ordered had obvious flaw on toe. Returned with no problem. Replacement came and a week later I saw the boots on another site for less. I informed Zappos, and they had no interest in crediting me for the difference. I would have spent the credit on shoes, BTW. As a result, I will price shoes at other sites first.

Brands I'd also recommend: Naturalizer for narrow sizes

These are the best boots I've ever had. I have very narrow feet and also have a long arch. They fit great and the heel is a perfect height -- very comfortable. I'd buy another David Tate shoe in the future. And, I'd buy through Zappos. They are the greatest!

I really like these boots. The upper is nice and soft, and the heel is not too high. I will probably order a brown pair if available.

I love these boots, they are stylish, and comfy (after I added a gel insert). They do run small, I have a size 12 wide foot in most shoes, but in these boots the 13 wide fits well with a thin sock.

A great stylish and versatile boot. My only complaint is that there is not much cushioning or support in the sole of the boot. I also tried the Clark's Leyden Crest boot. I found the Clarks more comfortable and easier to walk in but my heel kept slipping out of these so I kept the David Tate boots.

These shoes are really great. I normally wear a 7 1/2 N and I ordered that size and they fit really well. I was able to ut them on and wear them with no break-in period. I would recommend them even those they were pricey.

I love these boots. They give the boot look under pants. They do not have too high of a heel and for me very comfortable. I bought the grey and burgundy. I wish they made a camel or tan color as I already have black and dark brown in Munro shoes.

I couldn't find a man's boot in a 12AA (women's 13AA), so I ordered these. These are very comfortable boots and go very well with casual dress/jeans. The heel is not an issue, as there are several men's shoes with almost identical heels...not that it matters.

I've been wearing these for a few months now and love them. They're very comfortable, especially once I put orthopedic inserts into them so there was less impact on my heel. I'm not a high heel person at all but this heel height and style works really well for me and I can walk all day in these without trouble. There was no breaking in period at all, the leather is beautifully soft.

Love these boots! I don't usually wear heels this high, but after reading the other reviews I decided to give them a try. I wore them the whole weekend in Boston, even sprinting to make connecting flights, and I still love them! The steel shank makes all the difference in support. Thank you Zappos, I'll be back!

The reviews are true - let's just start there. Very comfortable right from the start so as soon as you put them on they feel like you have been wearing them all along. These have a cushion padded insole and that feels very comforting as well. I'm a guy and I was looking for something in a beatle boot, and although they do have a couple of men styles here at Zappos which are nice nothing can beat the styling of a women's boot. Women are so lucky. Excellent heel height not too high, excellent soft lambskin leather, good quality side easy on zipper, good rubber soles although the heel taps are hard rubber so I may change them later on to more a soft rubber material as to get better traction and make less of a click reminds me of that movie where they called the women "clackers" because the shoes made noise - okay, getting off subject, but yeah, excellent well made quality boots which leads me to believe that the manufacturer cares about offering quality shoes but most importantly and personally they were one of the few out of two or three styles that I found in a size 14! Happy with purchase they came fast and they fit like a glove. Okay Cheers.

I only wish these had more cushioning at the front. They're not quite comfortable enough for a full day of city walking. Otherwise they're great -- they look good on, and are well-made, quality boots.

Almost returned these because they felt too tight for my 8S foot. But I wore them a little longer, and realized that I was wearing a perfectly-fitting boot for the first time in years. These are chic and built to last. I'm glad I changed my mind.
