These boots cost about twice what I'd usually consider spending on shoes and I'm not ordinarily one to wear sporty stripes, but I managed to talk myself into buying them on the premise I need to help maintain demand for high quality vegan footwear. Shopping for boots can be frustrating as a vegan with fat calves, flat feet, and occasional plantar fasciitis, and I'm glad I splurged on these because they are perfect across the board. They are very comfortable (I put Birkenstock insoles in them as I do all shoes, but I debated whether I needed to), I can tuck jeans into them without pinching my legs, and they are high quality. They don't look cheap or fake like some fake leather; in fact, I suspect I'll be asked at some point why I'm wearing leather.

Only buy these boots if you have enormously wide calves. I admit I have narrow calves, but I figured that boots with an elastic back would run smallish so they can stretch and make an attractive, snug fit. When I put these boots on and zip them, I can fit both my hands inside. Also, they look kind of cheap. They're definitely not worth the price tag. I'm pretty surprised by all the positive reviews. I have other Jambu shoes that I like, but these were a major letdown.

These boots are fantastic! They fit perfectly from the moment I put them on and everyone compliments on them. They look great with pants and dresses. I'm not sure what the buckle on the side really does, but I don't care. They fit well, keep my feet warm (not too warm either) and are vegan. All good.

Even though I am returning this boot, I can't really say anything bad about it. It's really cool looking - I love the buckles and the stripe in the back. It's different. And it's definitely very comfortable, although I actually found it a little small (usually I am an 8, a 7.5 in Jambu shoes, and I ordered an 8). I had two problems with it, though - first, like all boots, it's made for women with very long legs. On a petite woman, it's very high. Still, this alone didn't undo all the coolness of the boot. I would have kept it even so. However, it's very casual looking, and I needed something a little more versatile, because I wanted to wear it with work dresses too. These wouldn't look right with anything but a very very casual dress. They looked great with skinny jeans though, even if they were a bit high in the shaft. I'm actually kind of wondering if maybe I can afford two pairs of boots, because I hate to give these up.

These books are amazingly comfortable and so cute and fashionable! I've had so many people ask me where I got them. And when I tell them they are Vegan they can't believe they aren't real leather. I'm thinking of getting the black ones too.

I'm in love with these boots! They feel like slippers! I have wide calves and these fit perfectly. They are so cute and different from the standard knee high boots everyone is wearing. I have 4 pairs of Jambus and I love them all. I'm really tough on shoes, but all of these have held up really well and look as great as the day I bought them. The boots definitely have a casual style. But, they are cute with more casual dresses or skirts.

These are great boots. I have a pretty wide toe box and these have plenty of room. The pink stripe on the back is definitely more pronounced than it appears in the picture, but it gives the boots a little more zing. I usually wear Merrell boots for everyday fall and winter wear and these will be a nice change. I can't tell if they are meant to be weatherproof, though. I guess I will spray them just to be safe.

I love these vegan boots. Had them in black. first and bought the brown. Very comfy and easy to wear all day and walk the dog. Room to tuck jeans in. great find especially since now marked down. Got them at regular price but well worth it, made well and will last. Hard to find vegan boots.

I am glad I got these Jambu boots. They are fun to wear: light but sturdy, and very comfortable. My feet do not get overly warm in them. They have an elegant line, and the brown is a pretty, dusky brown. I have slightly wide feet at the toes and a narrow ankle, and these boots don't slip or pinch anywhere.

Love these boots and have had so many compliments on them. Very comfortable for all day wear. And the stretch/fabric panel was the trick to fit my muscular calves. Liked them so much I ordered a second pair in black. Did get a half support pad to create a bit snugger fit in the ankle (but this is standard for me in all my boots).

These boots are comfortable, warm, and look great! I have gotten lots of compliments on them. My feet stay warm outside in the cold, but don't overheat inside. The only problem was a lack of support -- I had to put insoles in, unfortunately.

I wanted a brown boot for winter that could dress up or down. These fit the bill. And, they are beyond comfortable and warm. Two bonuses that I was not expecting for a fashionable boot. I have the brown, and I love them. True to size, as well. Order without hesitation and you will want to live in these, I swear!

I purchased these boots for my 18 yr old daughter. I bought a pair of Jambu clogs this summer and loved them, so I looked to see what they had in boots. These are unusual in style, not too biker or steam punk but suit the skinny jeans my daughter loves. They are warm and do well in snow also. She loved them and has had many compliments.

These boots not only are very comfortable, so far they have been walking me through the snow covered streets of New York City keeping me dry. So they are waterproof too which it doesn't state on the website. The details of the buckles and different color stripes makes them pretty cool looking and people stop to ask me where I bought them. I absolutely love and bought them because they are vegan!

These boots really rock! They are light in weight and have adequate foot support, with cushioning, too. Most of all, these boots still look leather-like even if they are made without using animal products. I am definitely getting the black pair next time.

These boots look like a work of art. They are so handsomely designed. Except for around the house, I haven't worn them yet since it's been warm, but I have loved (lived in) my other Jambu shoes and look forward to the same all day comfort.

These boots were comfortable, and while I really liked the materials, I wasn't crazy about the styling of the stripe up the back.

I absolutely love the styling of this boot - modern, yet not too crazy. Heel is a good height, cushy, comfortable. They look good with jeans tucked in (stretchy panel allows room for this, even with big calves like mine), or with pants covering the shaft. I have them in brown, which is a nice subtle color; it doesn't look too fake, even though they are vegan. I was worried that the pink accents would be a little much, but I don't mind them at all. Unfortunately they do seem a little narrow for me, so I may be sending them back. But I do love them; I wish they came in a wider width.

I was really excited to find a vegan boot that looked super cute in the photos. When the boots arrived, I was disappointed to find them less sassy than they looked online...They have more of a utilitarian rubber rain boot look to them in person. They were very comfortable in the footbed and I almost kept them for that reason. But ultimately I decided to return them because they were a little snug in the calf (great for wearing with tights, but no good for wearing over jeans). Looks like I'm still on the hunt for some comfy but pretty vegan boots!

These boots are fantastic! I receive compliments every time I wear them. Finally, vegan boots that are attractive. They are not made for freezing cold weather, but should keep your feet warm with extra thick socks...which will fit, because they do run a little large.

Fits perfectly, and I'm almost always 8.5 in shoes. Feels like it runs half a size smaller, but not in a bad way if that makes sense. It truly is the most "perfect" fitting boot I've ever worn. Love the quality and design. Not a true cold weather boot, I'd wear it on rainy days and during autumn, I certainly don't have space for boot socks. The only pants I wear are for exercise or sleep, but I can see how those of you who wear jeans (unless they're skinny) would have trouble fitting them into this boot. I think these look better, as a result of that, in a skirt and tights anyway.

I LOVE these boots. I love them so much that I bought a pair in brown and another in black. I get compliments constantly when I wear them. They work great with jeans tucked in them. I feel super stylish when I'm dashing about in foul weather or hanging out in the coffee shop. And they are comfortable, too! Vegan, stylish, comfortable all in one? FINALLY!

I just got these in brown from my awesome mom and already have the black ones. I love them. I got the black ones last December for a trip to Europe I was taking and wanted to be chic and comfy while walking. Mission accomplished. I feel amazing support. I wore them practically every day and night (except NYE, heels were obviously necessary). Get them! I am vegan and tattooed as such with a giant armband and am often called out for wearing these because people think they're leather. Oh also, I ordered them from a different website in December 3 weeks before my trip...bad idea. After two weeks of bs with them about where the boots were coming from and why it was taking go dang long when they said 4-5 days, my mom finally called Zappos on a Friday afternoon at 2pm...my boots arrived Saturday (yes, the next day!) at 3pm, still for free! Wow. Rock on Zappos. I don't expect that every time but couldn't have been more appreciative for a company being so "on it" five days before my trip overseas.
