I have a large foot (12) and I needed new boots, fast. I bought these boots to wear for NYE. I was really impressed at the fact that they needed no time to break in and were very much like they appear online. I think that they are very easy to walk in and go great with leggings. The only draw back is that they tend to slouch a little, but maybe I just prefer a little stiffer boot! The plus side, they are easy to pack in a suitcase. Glad I bought them!

Looks sexy, feels TERRIBLE. Fitzwell touts itself as sort of comfort brand, so I was expecting at least a semi-comfortable shoe, especially for the price. These feel no different underfoot than shoes from discount retailers. My feet were hurting within a few minutes of trying them on. Sent them right back. If you're a wussy about heels and non-supportive shoes, these are not the boots for you.

Love this boot! I'm in event marketing, and can wear these while running around for hours with total comfort. I wear an ankle sock to add a little cushion. They are adorable! Great with black tights and a mini.

After carefully reading the reviews I decided to purchase these boots. I received them yesterday and I have them on today. Okay, yes, when you open the box they do have a smell, but that goes away when you leave them out. They're great fitting boots, true to size. I will say this, these boots aren't good for standing on your feet all day long - but if you have a desk job like myself...get them!

These are great boots! I have larger calves and these boots stay up perfectly for me (one thing I love about Fitzwell.) Sleek, simple, and comfortable - the perfect black boot!

Love this boot! I have skinny calves and frequently have a problem with boot shafts being too big. This one was still a bit too big, but the best fitting so far. The best part is that the shaft is made of Lycra, so I paid my local tailor a visit and had her take it in a bit. Perfect! I wore this boot over the long weekend and found it very comfortable and stylish.

Fun boots that are comfortable to walk in. I do have to pull them up occasionally, but not excessively. They look great with skirts and dresses.

I think they are a little overpriced for what they are. There do not provide any support and they are not leather. That said, they look great, and if you are like me and have trouble finding higher boots that fit your calves, you may be in luck. I am on the smaller side, and these fit me great, but I suspect that they would work for larger people, too. They are stretchy and have some give. I have been wearing them all the time.

These are very comfortable boots! I love the elastic leg, no zippers to dig into my skin! My only complaint is that the seam at the very top of the leg is already starting to get a little hole near the stitching, so I'll have to be careful pulling them up from now on so I don't put my finger right through it. The gel in the heel is a wonderful feature, although some more padding under the ball of my foot would have been nice considering these are heels. But they are by no means uncomfortable to wear all day at work or out at night.

I ordered a 7.5, thought the shoe ran small and could have ordered a 6.5 or 7. I do not think this shoe runs small. I found them comfortable and I received lots of compliments My shoe size is generally a 7.

These boots look really cute with a dress or skinny jeans, but they don't have very much support. Cute for a few hours out, but not for work all day.

Nice boots they seem to run at least a 1/2 size larger; I was a bit disappointed about the fit around my ankles but I guess it is because the size it too big. I am keeping the boot; the support great and I use an insole to change the fit.

The sole reason that I bought this shoe was that the shaft of the boot is made out of a stretchy material. I have absurdly skinny calves - and most boots make me look like I am standing in buckets. These fit my small calves relatively well. I like the comfort of the wedge heel and the color of the boot. The style of the boot is pretty nondescript, and I wish it had more visual interest. It is great to wear over tights - but can show the bunches from jeans if you wear them over pants. Overall, they work for me because they were the only brown boots that I found that fit my small calves - but if I had more options I probably would not have selected them. I will say that I am very impressed with the comfort of the shoe.

Overall I like this boot, though I was hoping for a little slimmer look across the instep. From above the foot just looks big. I was also surprised at how floppy the boot is and it's a microsued-like material and gives the impression of not being very high quality. Nonetheless, very comfortable and I would recommend it to someone who was looking for similar styling.

This is a great date, dinner, theater boot. Super looking, unusual, sexy and gets many complements. I am not used to high heels - and these are very high for me, but I wanted a great looking boot for going out. The balls of my feet become uncomfortable after 2 to 3 hours, even after worth of Dr. Scholls inner soles help and when I am home, off they go. Love the fabric, although they do slide down after a bit, so you'll need to lift them up a few inches. Probably better over pants, I wear them under pants or with a skirt/dress. I'd buy them again; good value, but not as my only pair, I need a 1 inch heel for all day wear.

They look fine out of the box but feel cheap/uncomfortable when you wear them. I was hoping these would work out since I love the price but they have to go back. Love the style.

These boots are pretty good. They are not the most comfortable, but they are dressy and look good with the dress that I needed them for. They won't be boots that I wear all the time, though.

The material is very thin and seems awfully flimsy. Hard to believe they would last. I am returning them because they were too short for me. Seemed shorter than 16 1/2" but I suppose it could be accurate.

The boot looks great and fits well but the material is very stiff and cheap feeling. Mine also had a strong chemical odor similar to a Sharpie. If you can get over the feel and have Febreze, it is a good fitting boot for the price.

I thought these boots were terrific, until I put them on. They look great, but the left boot was so squeaky every time I moved my foot I knew I couldn't wear them anywhere. I am returning them and hope to exchange them for a different pair. I can't imagine what would make a fabric boot squeak like that.

I have a love-hate with these boots. Love: the price; fashionable looking. Hate: the lycra feels flimsy (and as others noted, it sometimes bunches); the foot of the shoe doesn't give that much support. Now, I always wear tights and socks when I wear these boots, and the socks give me some extra padding - otherwise, I felt like I was walking around barefoot all day.

My main problem with these boots is that they absolutely slip down and get all slouchy. They would look awesome if they stayed tight and sleek on your leg, but the bunching is unattractive and pulling them up constantly is annoying. Also, an earlier reviewer said they fit her thinner legs. My legs are definitely not skinny (I'm a 12M and tall) and these were loose on me. So not sure what's up with that. It is hard to see in the pictures, but the stitching on the boot foot is designed in the outline of a pump--so it almost looks like you are wearing a pump with tights (except loose, bunchy, thick tights). I didn't really like the way that looked.

This boot is great because the circumference actually allows a fairly snug fit around my skinny calves. They're really stylish BUT, they are quite uncomfortable, especially for a wedge that's not all that high! The problem is the lack of cushioning, especially at the balls of the feet. I will be keeping them for the fit and style though.
