I love the styling of this shoe. The heel is a comfortable height, and the ankle support is nice. I have slightly narrow heels, so I thought the fact that it runs narrow would be good, but it is a tad narrow for me.

This boot is poorly made for the price...quite a thin sole, and the leather is stiff and shiny. The fit was good, but the look was kind of "cheap". Sent them back.

Love the look of the boot. Ordered a 7.5 wide and it was just a little on the small side - I am going to send it back and get the 8 wide because I really want this boot.

I was trying these boots on when my husband came in and said: "Whoa! I like these!" I do too. Elegant and comfortable, these boots are perfect to wear with skirts. The leather may appear a little slick, but it is soft and will pick up creases with time. I am really glad I ordered them in wide. It would be a good idea to plan to wear a gel insert.

Thank you! These boots arrived just in time. I have flat feet and have a difficult time getting the right boots all the time. It took me about a year to find these. Also the leather is beautiful, nice and smooth. These are beautiful and very comfortable fitting. These boots are excellent! :) Even my colleagues at work were complimenting on how nice they are as soon as they arrived and I put them on. I am very happy. Merry Christmas!

Brands I'd also recommend: Anything equal to the quality of Fitzwell stylish and comfort.

I love this boot! Very comfortable and the side zip makes it easy to take off and put on without having to unlace and lace up every time. The leather is good quality and the sizing is right on for me.

The best boots you ever could own! They keep you dry in 13 inches snow, they keep you warm too, and they have you walk comfortably. Unbelievable! If I didn't have a pair, I'd get them.

I purchased these for my 16 year old daughter and she loves them. Her comments are that they run narrow, which was OK for her. True to size, nice cushion in the sole. "They're slammin'. "

Boot is nice, but too tight; also the boot box the shoes came in was too big for the boots and they slid around in the package. I added some bags to help in sending the boots back.

These boots are so comfy. (Would not expect less from Fitzwell.) I wore them for a couple of hours around the house to make sure of the fit and then wore them for a 3 hour singing performance on concrete, with no problems. The laces are real, even though there is a side zipper, so you can loosen the fit around your ankles if you need to (I did). I wear a WW. They are also very cute on.

These are amazingly cute. They run a little big. I have a wide foot so I ordered the wide width. I could have ordered medium width.

These are great boots. I love the Fitzwell boots for wide calves. Mine are wide but not extra wide. I had ordered a pair of their knee hi boots -- but when I saw these, I returned the others and took these. The others were also great. I think that Fitzwell does a fabulous job of making wide calf boots look great, and not way out of proportion. I wanted these because I always loved the granny style boots, and these have a zipper so you can slip in an out easily. I have not worn them yet except around the house, but they are really comfortable so far. The leather is really nice.

Great shoe. I have very wide feet and some foot issues. Ordered this shoe in a WW and it was indeed a WW. Wore them for my wedding and did not have foot pain afterward. I like that you can dress up or down with them.

These Fitzwell Rhea black boots are great. They are a medium width and are perfect for my feet. Also, there is a side zipper and the lace-ups are adjustable as well for perfect calf-hugging comfort. They look great with jeans, dress pants, and longer skirts.

I bought these boots to wear with a costume. It was a period piece from the 1830s. They were very comfortable. I did have to put gel soles at the ball of my foot, but then that's my own personal preference (I have foot problems). I'm sure they would be perfectly fine without them. I also have thicker calves and these zipped up easily.

Got the shoes in less than 48 hours! Super fast! Fit perfectly and very comfortable. I got 2 of the same, but different sizes just to be sure. Returning the other pair was super easy. I would get shoes here again!

I love the boots; they are beautiful and very comfortable. There is a funny problem however; the tongue of the boot is accidentally sewn to the top/side of the boot. By the third pair I just decided to cut the stitches w/ a knife instead of sending them back. You couldn't possibly see it or tell it's behind the laces. It was worth it and the second and third pair were sent immediately.

These shoes fit well right out of the box-- they look complicated to lace, but have an inconspicuous side zipper that makes them easy to put on and take off. The leather and eyelets were close in color, and didn’t make a strong impression. Because I was going for a stronger look, I preferred the Naturalizer Drury to this boot.

These are very cute; really wanted them to work, but they were too narrow for me. I wear a 7 1/2W because of painful bunions. Would recommend them if you don't have that problem.

They're narrow. They smell funny, plasticy, not leathery. The toes are long and boxy. But the real deal breaker was the heel. The heel is a hard, slick piece of plastic, very slippery on linoleum. Additionally, the heel stack appears to be plastic wrapped in fake leather. This will not wear well. I would have ordered a size wider if not for the above.
