This is a very cute casual boot that fits great around my skinny calves (13" around). It seems to run about a half size small in length and kind of wide. If you have narrow feet, these may not be for you.

I read other comments on this boot before buying and the comfort factor sold it for me. Plus the cuteness factor of this funky little boot. However I was unpleasantly surprised to find a boot with such a narrow shaft that made it difficult to put on. I returned it for a size larger and it helped. Still the only thing good about this purchase was the fact it was deeply discounted.

This is a great boot. It runs a little small. I usually wear an 8 but had to exchange it for an 8.5. The boot rubs the top of my foot where the bottom meets the shaft. There is not much room for foot height which also makes them tricky to get on.

Just received these boots and I absolutely love them! I wore them all day and they stayed comfortable the whole time! As always, Zappos comes through with fast delivery and I could not be happier!

I love these. I needed boots to wear with skirts that had a wider toe box due to inflammation from arthritis. I ordered these a half size up and they are perfect. Roomy enough to not cause pain, comfortable like sneakers and incredibly stylish without being huge in the calf area.

Like wearing slippers! Love these boots so much. I wore them all day and into the evening the had happy feet. They are a little tight over the top of your foot when putting them on but after your foot is in they feel wonderful!

These are super freakin' cute... I agree with most other reviews except for the fit. I normally wear 8.5 or 9...always. I had to get the 10s, but when I put them up to the soles of my other shoes they are the same size. I did try the 9s on and they cut into my foot way too much. Other than the size, these are perfect casual boots!

These boots are really adorable. The strap on the top opens so you can grab the boot better to get your foot in - and then tighten around your leggings or pants. They are narrow in the leg - so won't go over anything but skinny pants. I found it hard to push my foot past the ankle and into the sole of the shoe - but once it was in, the boot fit great - but I had to "tug" a lot to get my foot in.

I ordered these boots a half size larger than I usually wear and was glad I did. They run a little small. But they are perfect for people with slender calves. They're more for fashion than warmth. They're very cute; I've gotten tons of compliments.

Tiny foot box and narrow shaft. I could barely slip my size 5 foot into the foot of this shoe and once my foot slipped into place it was a snug fit. The boot shaft is also very narrow; there's no way you'll be wearing these with your jeans tucked inside. I'm returning mine. Thinking about trying the next size up.

Very comfortable and fun. Not super stylish in the grand scheme of boots, but they fit my relaxed style perfectly. In my experience Simple shoes tend to run small so I ordered a half size larger and they fit great. Not for people with big calves, my legs are probably at the upper limit of fitting. Also don't expect these shoes to keep your feet warm on their own, warm socks recommended on cold days...another reason to order a half size larger. Overall, I love this brand and these boots did not disappoint.

I absolutely love these! They are so comfortable and cute! I normally wear an 8, sometimes an 8½ and the 8 was definitely too short for me.

Comfortable and very stylish. Not a lot of arch support but I like that. From reading other reviews I decided to order half size up and glad I did because it doesnt rub the top of my foot but I can see how it will. I wear 6.5 but ordered 7.

Super super comfortable -- very soft floor bed. Just more of a comfy-boot look, kind of like Uggs, and not quite chic enough.

I love this boot. First I ordered a brown pair. Then I decided to order a black pair. I wear both of them regularly and have never been uncomfortable. I have severe psoriasis on my feet so it's hard to find a comfortable shoe. This one works!

Fun, casual. Have to be really scrunched down for girls with bigger calves. I didn't have the arch problem others had though, but they're challenging to get into, just like any boots without zips. Love my Simple shoes.

Cheap looking. Not nearly as cute as the picture. The size ran small, I ordered a half of a size up and they fit but felt cheap.

Bought in chocolate and charcoal. Both look great with tights and a short skirt or with jeans. I'm petite, only 5'1, so the only thing missing is a little bit of height, but that's pretty obvious from the description and the photo. I think it's an even trade for the comfort and style they provide. It takes a little effort to wiggle into them, but once they're on, they're so comfortable. Nice quality suede, flexible sole, but add your own insole for arch support. The 6.5 fit perfectly, but a 7 would've allowed extra room for my insoles.

I have always been fond of the Simple brand and this boot met all my expectations for comfort. I really like the adjustable top because I have thin legs. They look great with cable knit leggings and, of course, shipping was fast and free, as always, with Zappos.

Okay, so after reading the mixed reviews, I got these to have a pair of dark brown boots other than my Uggs. First of all, the first thing I noticed when I got them out of the box was that they were pretty scuffed up. The inside heel and toe area had been scuffed pretty badly on one shoe (like someone had walked around in them and scuffed them up), so that was disappointing. The reviews about the top of the boot being tight were dead on. When I first got them, I was scared I wasn't even going to get my foot in the boot! After a little tugging and pulling, I got them on, and the seam across the foot definitely cut into the top of my foot (I do have a high instep, though). I took them off and was considering sending them back...too, bad, though, because they're SO CUTE! I tried them on again, and this time they were much easier to get on, so I could tell they would stretch out some. After wearing them around the house for a bit, I decided to keep them. I have ginormous calves and can never find boots to fit. The opening at the back of these boots is large enough to allow for my muscles, but the strap across the back has to be let out almost to the very end, which is unfortunate, because it is only suede part of the way. The last half is lined with cloth, and it looks ugly when it shows. I think I'm just going to take them to a cobbler and have them replace the strap with a solid piece of suede. As for comfort, they are great. Don't expect too much support, but there is some, and they are built like thin, comfy sneakers. Overall, I'm pretty happy.

Extremely cute boot, but not for those with a larger calf! Yes, the split in the back looks like it could accommodate one, but with the strap across the back, it really does not look great on a larger leg. I wear a 7 to a 7.5 depending on the shoe and the 7.5 in this fits really nice with a pair of regular weight socks. They were comfortable and stylish, but not for me. Sadly, they go back.
