I ordered this boot in two colors: brown with blue stitching, and brown with brown stitching. Cowboy Boot Fans, Take Note: The brown-stitching version has a pointed toe, whereas the blue-stitched boot has a snip toe. (Weird, huh?) Both fit great and are very comfy, even for wearing all day, riding, walking around pastures, etc. (or just looking cute in the city!). The bottom part of the boot, where your foot goes, is really roomy all around -- there seems to be more vertical space (top of arch to bottom of arch) in these boots than in many. Nice moderate heel, good for riding and walking. I wish I could've kept both colors! Really supportive, too!

Awful. The leather seems more like man-made to me. The ankles are loose and sloppy. I should have known by the price, but was hopeful they'd be better than they are. I haven't had cowboy boots for years and the last ones were a beautiful lizard - of course, a lot more expensive than these. So disappointed.

I ordered these hoping they would fit a wide calf and they are amazing! I'm on my feet all day at work and these boots are more comfy than my gym shoes. I got the medium width because of everyone saying they really wern't kidding when they said wide. They fit better than any boot I've ever had! Next to no break in time compared to my durangos. I would have these resoled before buying another pair I'm so in love with them.

These are the best boots I have ever bought. These boots are the definition of comfort. Literally felt like I could wear them all day. They barely need breaking in.

I just bought these and absolutely love them. But, like any good leather shoe or boot, you need to be ready to break them in.

These boots are amazing! My very first pair of cowboy boots and I was very impressed! The time between me placing the order and when I got my boots was outstanding. It only took 2 days to get my boots with free shipping!

Best boot I have ever had! As soon as I put it on, it felt like it belonged on my feet! Instant comfort! I am in heaven. Most boots take awhile to break in, not this boot! Thank you Justin!

The best-fitting of the 6 pairs of boots I ordered. The color of the embroidery is green, not blue as it appears. I like the deep slit in the front.

These boots are great. I can definitely tell a difference in the size 8 vs. 8 1/2. Plus the extra half adds more to the circumference - bad for my skinny legs.

Great boots - they are so cute and very comfortable. Not sure about ordering 1/2 size larger - I wear and 8 1/2 and wish that is what I bought instead of an 8. You will love them!

I bought these for my girlfriend and she loves 'em. She says they fit amazing (I did buy 'em a half size small). The boots came extremely fast in the mail, and ready to wear.

I am a very proud owner of the Justin J flex boot! I am usually a 6 and a half but ordered the 6 due to all the reviews saying they run about a half size big. Glad I did because they are a perfect fit! I was worried they wouldn't come up high enough on my calf but they fit about half inch below my knee. Very comfortable and cute. Couldn't be happier with my purchase!

Beautiful comfortable boot. The stitching is subtle but lovely, the brown leather rich and handsome. The ankles feel a bit tight after wearing all day, but that's my only complaint.

These boots were purchased as a Christmas gift, and I was specifically looking for a boot that was comfortable without looking clunky and that would look good with skirts as well as jeans. To verify the sizing comments, I went to a local western store (where these boots cost 50% more) and tried on the same boot before I ordered. True to the comments, I was comfy in a boot a whole size smaller than I normally wear. Success! She is very happy with both the fit and the style. She typically wears a 10.5 or 11 shoe, and the 10 in this boot was comfortable from the beginning, with only a little break-in period. She has gotten lots of compliments on them both with jeans and with tights or leggings.

I am really enjoying my new boots! As with most cowboy boots they take a little breaking in to feel great. These boots run big - I usually wear a size 9 and I went down a whole size to get the best fit. Thank goodness Zappo;s allows free shipping on returns because it took a few sizes of trying on before I got my perfect fit.

These boots are great. The pattern and style is eye-catching and the brown leather is a rich tone. Order a 1/2 smaller...they run large. The boots are still a bit stiff. I've worn them 4 times now, but boots are like that. It takes time to break them in. Customer service on the return was very easy.

LOVE THESE BOOTS!!! Love the colors! Love the stitching! Love the comfort! I had to get these for a wedding that I am in and I absolutely love them. They are so comfortable. I always wear a size 8 1/2 and these boots felt true to size for me. I also have very large calves and was worried that they wouldn’t fit because of the height of the boot, but they fit very well and look great! I also love the turquoise stitching and think these boots would be super cute with any summer dress. If you look at the picture right under the "v’s" on the boot is a light purple/pink stitching which I think adds a little more flair to the boot and goes very well with the turquoise. I would highly recommend!

Bought these for my sis--she loved them. Soft leather, beautiful stitching. A little loose on the heel at first, but that resolves once you wear them for awhile. Order a 1/2 to a full size smaller than normal. The squared off toe is a great detail that gives them a little out of the ordinary look.

Very quick delivery for items in stock. The Justin boots are great. I was so fortunate to find Zappos because I wear a size 11 and it is very hard to find cool shoes, boots, etc for women in that size. I love Zappos!

This boot is cute, it was just too wide in the heel for my narrow ankle. The leather is a beautiful color, and the pseudo flames going up the shaft of the boot are awesome. I wish I could fit into these boots. I ordered an 8, when I normally wear an 8.5 and the length was fine, so order a half size smaller.

Nice style boot! The fit is good to slightly large for 5B. I was concerned about calf fit because these are higher than most, but fit okay. I was not sure about the square toe, but it looks proportional. I returned one set of boots with no problems - Zappos is excellent to deal with so far as this was my first order. The only downer is the Justin boots are made in China - what isn't anymore?

So disappointed when I received these boots because I love the design. Normally I wear a size 9, but I ordered an 8.5 in medium width. Well, the boots were still way too big, and felt extremely wide as well. Even if I put on thick, fluffy socks it wouldn't have made up the difference. In addition, the sides of the boot puckered in at awkward, stiff points right below the ankle on both sides of the foot (both feet), which felt painful even through tall socks. Not sure if this was a defect or all the boots are like this. :( Returned, not going to try my luck with a smaller size.

Definitely big - I wear an 8, ordered a 7 1/2, and they were too big. The wide width isn't all that wide, either. They are sturdy boots, and look like it.
