So these boots certainly are stylish but their lack of quality makes the price ridiculous. At the price point you could almost buy some Doc Martens that will last the rest of your life or you could save up some more and buy some Frye boots that will last and last, look even more stylish, and are loaded with history. I am disappointed that I spent my money on these. If you ask me, the side zipper looks cheesy, the leather is alright, the stitching is not meant to last. Save your money and buy something better. Or buy $20 boots, the quality will probably be about the same.

My daughter also bought a pair of these boots and within 3 months one of the soles cracked. We took them back to the store and they informed us that it was a common problem and many customers took them back, they gave us an exchange set of boots. A few months later passed and the same thing happened to the new set. My daughter called them and the store said that if it was over 3 months they would not have a record and so we would be SOL. I told my daughter to e-mail Steve Madden and they replied to take it to the store. I took them to the store and the store manager said that she would contact her district manager. The store manager called us and told us to bring them back. We took them back and they said it would be the last exchange. The boots are very nice but they scuff easy and because the soles crack across easy (a common defect in workmanship) I will rate them low.

I've had these shoes for about 2 weeks and love them so far! They seem to be really nice material and the brown is a nice dark color. They are very comfortable- I've been wearing them almost every day. Some people seem to be complaining about the heel but it seems pretty solid too me. I like that it isnt too clanky when walking on tile. They have scuffed a little bit but I'm hoping I can fix that with some polish or something like that. I first bought a size 9 and they were huge- luckily I had to exchange for an 8 (since they were out of the 8.5) because they are even still a little bit big. The laces on the front do help with tightening them up and its nice that there is also a zipper on the side for easy putting on and taking off. Definitely recommend!

I've owned my pair of black Troopas for over 5 years now, and I love them today even more than when I first got them. They age very gracefully, and I like the look they develop after being worn often (and I wear them VERY often). They fit perfectly, and a very comfortable, but I don't suggest wearing them if you're going to be walking all day, because there isn't much arch support. If you're thinking about buying these, do it! They'll last you forever, and you won't regret it. I'm on this page now because I'm thinking about buying a new pair. A few pieces of the leather inside the shoe have started sticking out (but it isn't terribly uncomfortable, and is fixable if you're wearing moderately thick socks). This only happened in the last few months. These are my favorite shoes. :)

So far I've worn these boots about 5 times and I love them! They require a slight breaking in and the initial creasing around the toe box is a little uncomfortable but not bad as the leather softens up. The brown color is gorgeous and the boots look high quality. They look really cute with boot socks peeking out and leggings or shorts or a dress, and are pretty comfortable to walk around in all day. I'd say they run true to size or maybe SLIGHTLY small. I wear an 8-8.5 and this one I got the 8.5 and it fits with thick socks. So far I haven't noticed any of the quality concerns that are mentioned in some other reviews but I'll update later if I do.

Love the boots. My foot is size 10.5 and I have a really hard time finding shoes that fit. I read all the reviews about the size. I ordered a size 10 and it fit perfect. I would say it runs on the bigger side. They are so adorable and comfortable.

These are my favorite boots and I hope they never go out of style. I originally bought a pair in 2013, and I wore it for over a year in all weathers. I had to stop wearing it because the heel wore out. This new pair is just like the original pair. Somewhat narrow fit on ankles and foot, which is good for me.

These are great for a chill night out. My only complaint is the front of the shoe has a "band" that rubs against the toe initially. It's softened over time.

My 12 year old daughter is on her 4th pair of these shoes. They've worn incredibly well. She's worn them in different sizes and she has 2 different sized feet. This is a great price for a durable shoe that she can wear daily to school and on the weekends.

The heel wore out in a few months and was the support cut into my foot and they were unwearable. Look good but too low quality.

Liked the photo of these, but they were weird in person; something about the leather and height of the boot. They also ran large.

My favorite boots of all time! I bought a pair back in highschool that lasted me for almost three years-wearing in rain, snow, you name it- before the sole started to separate from the boot upper on the side. I spent about a year trying to muster up the strength to pay the money again for them and am so glad I did. I wear these with everything and they are so easy to zip on and go plus they make any outfit look more stylish. Super comfortable once broken in (which doesn't take long) and they go with everything!

Ordered a 7, but the (7)box contained a 7 1/2. Didn't like the dull leather. The boot should have sheen as pictured and as my first identical boot is still after 4 years.

I originally bought these in a Steve Madden store. I've had them for about 3 years and after wearing them constantly, they are finally starting to look ratty. I love them so much. They are cute, comfortable and go with practically ANYTHING. I just ordered my second pair.

Beware this book has a very strong scent to it. They smell like permanent marker. Be sure to air out in a large area for a few weeks or you'll end up with a headache if you put in your closet or room.

I've purchased the steve madden "troopa" boot multiple times over the past 3 years because I literally wore them until the sole broke. These are my everyday, go to shoes. I have them in both brown and black. I love these boots and find them very stylish and comfortable. The boot does run narrow, but after some use it does loosen up.

I am VERY disappointed in these boots. My husband said Steve Madden is a high quality brand, but there are several problems with these boots: - Extremely strong, terribly disgusting chemical odor: When I took them out of the box, the odor was overwhelming. Regardless of where I kept them in our apartment, they would make the whole room smelly to an extent that you could notice the smell right when you walked in. After I had them sit in a corner for almost a whole week, I decided to wear them for the first time today. They are still smelly, and - unfortunately - I cannot take them off because I am at work. The smell is so overwhelming that it actually gives me a headache. I cannot wait to take them off tonight!!! - Even though I had a perfectly normal day and did not do anything crazy, the surface of the tip of the left boot is already scratched and reveals a color that suggests that the upper is not made of leather, but some synthetic material. I also feel that my feet are sweaty, which they are not in my other leather boots. I paid the reduces price of $79.90, but that still seems way too much!!! DO NOT BUY!!!!

These boots look great and fit well. The insoles aren't super supportive so a comfort insole helps a lot. The sole doesn't have a lot of grip initially so they aren't the best on icy or slippery surfaces. A great fashion boot, but not meant for winter protection. The side zipper is handy and makes them easy to slip on an off without unlacing. Very cute boots!

These boots are so cute and sooo comfy! I read the reviews about cracked soles but I haven't experienced that yet. I've only had them for a few weeks though! As with most Steve Madden shoes I sized up and they fit perfectly! Only a half size on these boots though.
