When I purchased this boot, I was a bit skeptical due to the fact it was not leather but when I took it out of the box it smelled like leather and looked like leather. Even though it runs a little big I have put on thicker socks and they fit great afterward.

They are so cute. However, they smell really bad and therefore my closet smells. Don’t know if the smell is going to go away. If not, will have to get rid of them. Such a shame!!

I ordered this in brown tumbled and loved them when I received them. They looked just like the picture- very nice and have a beautiful squared toe. I'm not even a fan of 'western style' clothing/shoes but loved them as soon as I saw them. I set them outside on my balcony for about 24 hours to get rid of the chemical smell (just fine after that).

So far so good. Haven't worn them yet, but tried them on and they look super cool. Returned the previous pair which we a half-size too large with no problem or charge whatsoever.

These boots were exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a true brown leather boot -- not red/orange/tan brown -- and I wanted a narrow pointed toe. They are perfect! And you can't beat how fast they arrive! Zappos is so fast and reliable!

Sexy style! The smell goes away after leaving them out a few days in an extra bedroom. Sadly, I must return. I usually wear size 4.5, though some 5s work. The heel is too big in this style for me - tons of slippage. So sad.

I searched many sites; Zappos had just the boot I was looking for. This was my first order. The size 8 was a bit tight, so I returned them. Then went through the process of using the resulting credit to order a size 8 1/2. Zappos made the whole process extremely easy! We will order again from Zappos and highly recommend them to all our friends.

I love these boots - so comfy and they look great. They do run a little large - I usually wear an 8 - 8-1/2; I got a size 8 and probably could have done well with a 7-1/2.

I was so excited when my ankle boots arrived. Unfortunately, the size 5.5 was actually a UK size, which equals a size US 8! The material and craftsmanship were great.

Cute boots! These are very cute but tend to be narrow, due to the pointed toe. I would order a half size larger. They do have a very strong chemical smell so I would also suggest leaving them outside for a few hours to diss spell that. It has really helped. Overall, I really like them!

Heel slips. I ordered these in my normal size 6.5, and my heel would slip with every step. I ordered a half size smaller and still the issue with the heel slipping -- not just a little. To the point where it is hard to walk. I also realized that these have almost no traction on the bottom. Really a shame because the style is extremely cute, and the cut makes them look more feminine than some other boots.

Cute style! I purchased this boot for a one-time event. I am not a western gear type of person. I had to exchange the boot because the size I needed was a half-size smaller than my normal size. It was still rather loose; I had to wear a thick sock.

I was puzzled by the remarks of a different customer reviewing these boots. Only after they arrived did I understand what she meant when she said the toes are square. She means that the sole juts out well beyond the toe and has an aggressively square cut to it that is so noticeable you might be afraid you'd lacerate the bellies of small dogs you passed on the sidewalk while wearing these. These boots are just plain bizarre-looking. I sent them back.

These boots are great for the price. The chemical smell does dissipate after a week. Super cute with jeans, however not made for walking miles on the Vegas strip!

This boot felt too wide in the heel causing my foot to rub up and down. The point started too soon and pinched my toes. I have pretty easy to fit feet but this boot does not fit. Gorgeous otherwise but has to go back.

This boot is really cute in person, but the first thing you notice is this horrific smell emanating from them. That alone would have made me send them back. The upper which is a strange cross between vinyl and fabric is also very thin. I would be afraid that the boot would wear right through. It\'s a shame because it really does look cute on with jeans.

I ordered these boots and loved the look and fit. I was worried the smell wouldn't go away but decieded to wear them. Before I was out of the house the tip of the toe snapped off, and when I tripped the top of the toe also peeled off. Had to return them.

The boot color is a different grey. It looks charcoal grey; when I received the boot it looked green. I will return.

I read all the reviews before I purchased these and yes, there is a smell but it lasts a day. They are super cute with jeans. However, they are very cheaply make and I haven't worn these more than a few times and the sole is already coming apart from the shoe. The price is great for this shoe but as with all things. I got what I paid for and I'm returning them for a different brand of shoe.

Cute boots / Awful, terrible smell: I bought these for my daughter but we somehow entirely missed that they are pleather (or faux leather). They look absolutely great in 'distressed brown'. However, they have the most bizarre petrochemical smell. We held on to them for a little while to see if it would dissipate at all; it did not. At all. We returned them. I cannot help but be concerned: How could something that smells this weird not be bad for you? Zappos Customer Service was, of course, as usual, totally great -- and they have assured me that they will look into this matter further.

I love these boots. I have bigger legs so there just the right height for me, I always have trouble with long boots. I have really low arches n these shoes still feel comfortable, never thought I'd pull off a pointed toe but these are awesome.

I just got these boots and absolutely love them! The chemical smell that everyone seem to complain about was nothing bothersome. I love the style and the color. I am used to paying much more for a pair of shoes so considering the price, I cannot really complain, I am rather really happy with them. I guess you do not have to pay a fortune to look cool! And they do not look cheap at all (that was one thing I was hesitant before ordering).
