The boots aren't quite as beautiful as they look in the picture, but they are very nice - comfortable, stylish. Have only had them for a month, and I'm waiting to see how sturdy they will be. Overall, I'm glad I bought them - other boots in the same style are priced so much higher.

I really love these boots (black). They fit well and go with almost anything. I have not had any issues with the soles breaking or cracking. Although, I do not use them every day. Maybe two or three times a month. I just ordered the brown ones. I may even re-order black ones just to have an extra pair because I think they are so cute. They have a rocker look but cute at the same time.

I am usually an 8.5 in steve madden shoes. I ordered these and when i tried them on they were very tight in the foot area and very uncomfortable on the heel however they were also too long and were more like a 9 than an 8.5 in length. I would not recommend these.

Cute, but very uncomfortable! Like walking on blocks of wood. Also, this is the cheapest, worst quality leather I've ever purchased. Very disappointing.

This is the third Steve Madden combat boot I've bought in the past 3 years. It's styled exactly like the previous version, but without the scuffing. The sole is rubber and a bit easier on the feet. I love this boot...it's great with dresses, leggings, jeans...whatever. Very comfortable...feels 'broken-in' the first time you put it on.

They take some breaking in but they are really comfortable cute boots. They are great in the rain too! Your feet will be perfectly dry. My only complaint is the sole is really hard so it gets tons of gravel lodged in the bottom and little chunks of it get taken out by rocks. Nothing a trip to a shoe repair place couldn't deal with though.

Looked super cute and comfortable enough for daily walking. Not especially supportive but my 20-minute walking commute felt fine.

I love these boots! I've had my black ones forever and I'm actually ordering a second pair in the brown leather. So cute I love wearing them! My style is kind of all over the place but these boots always add that subtle edge that I love to have in all my outfits. I definitely recommend these boots!

I have been looking for a true combat style boot to wear all the time, and I just got these today. I truly love them, they are so adorable on and look exactly as I pictured they would on my foot. I opted to lace up halfway and tie around ankle slit flops round the top. I'm so thrilled, I'm usually a 7, and they fit a a tiny bit big but I figure I can wear them with a thick sock. Ordered them in black and I'm happy I did. Love, love, love.

I ordered the Steve Madden Troopa in Brown Leather, and it was by far the most hideous pair of Steve Maddens I have ever seen. Unlike in the images, the leather is very splotchy (especially around the ankles and lower leg) and much darker in real-life. The zipper is difficult to work while on; I felt like I was going to tear the leather around it before I was finally able to take to boots off. Overall, I do not recommend this pair of boots, at least not in the Brown Leather material.

I bought a pair of these at a department store two years ago for my daughter. They have been her go to boots that long. She has worn the heels down and the front is scuffed, but that doesn't stop her from wearing them. I'm going to see if the shoe repair can re-heel them and put some shoe polish on them. If not then I'm considering buying her another pair because she wears them so much. They have turned out to be a good boot and well worth the price. I paid the same for them two years ago as they are offered here.

I absolutely love these boots. I got them early this year and they look great pretty much with everything. I like them so much that I'm thinking about getting another pair.

This is my third pair in two years. I love them. I wanted different colors. All three pairs are still holding up. I traveled (walked and walked) all through Europe in the summer with these. I always received many compliments everywhere I went. However, the leather is not great quality. It is just ok. But the comfort is top notch. I noticed the soles are now rubber as opposed to wooden as before. I wear an 8. My feet are narrow. They have a lovely fit.

Not good for skinny legs despite the laces, and cut funny. I do not understand how everyone rates these 5 stars, especially with the soles cracking. For me, I can't go out of this price range right now so I took a chance. They are just okay. I wish I had returned them and kept looking; however, I had already worn them out and scuffed up the bottoms so couldn't return. I have very narrow legs, ankles, heel, and pretty narrow foot in general. The toe box of this boot is quite narrow. I ordered my usual size and doubt I will be able to wear thick socks with these unless they stretch. And though narrow on the toes, they are too loose on the leg/ankle even laced up as tight as they will go. There is about an inch and a half gap between my leg and the shoe. This doesn't look too bad with dresses, but skinny jeans would have to be tucked in (a look I'm personally not into) or the boot makes a bulge from under your jeans. The boots also run long. I wish I had ordered a half size down. I tried on the Steve Madden boot with the blue zipper down the back in a store today (forgot name, sorry), and though they are not real leather, the fit was better -- tightened close to my leg. If you've got very thin legs, go for those instead. I also wish the toe was a little rounder -- the very narrow toe makes these look more delicate and less tough.

Oh my gosh, I just love this boot. I love it so much I am ordering an additional pair. I had my mother try them on and she loved them too so am giving her this pair. The boot has a great sole. It is rubber and grips very well. I take a 9 1/2 ordinarily, but I ordered a 10 in case mother liked them and I will be ordering my pair in a size 10 too.

I just received these boots today in black and I Love them!!! I usually wear a 8 but I brought an 8.5 because of some reviews staying they are kind of tight, and I am happy I did that. They do have a little space but they are not tight on my pinky toe. Love Love Love them. Will be ordering them I'm cognac color!

I loved these boots. LOVED THEM! But they are poorly made and virtually fell apart. The lining started to show wear and tear a little within the first month. The laces broke. The heel wore down within a few months. I consider Steve Madden more or less mid-range when it comes to quality. But even with moderate expectations, I was disappointed. They didn't even last one season! I need to buy a new pair of boots now. But this time, I am willing to spend a little more to a company with higher quality.

These felt very cheap and flimsy. I really liked the look of them, so I was very disappointed to return them, but you could just tell that they'd be falling apart in less than a year.

I FEEL SORRY FOR ANYONE WHO DOES NOT OWN THESE BOOTS. They are fabulous. I just bought them online at Zappos and could not be happier with my purchase! (FAST DELIVERY TOO) I got them in the cognac color which is a great fall hue. I knew I wanted short brown boots and these are absolutely perfect. Good height, soft leather and comfortable. I'd go up half size from your normal size just to be on the safe side and since you'll most likely be wearing heavier socks with them. THESE BOOTS ARE A MUST GET!

The Troopa is not just stylish, it is truly comfortable. This trendy boot takes you from jeans and tees to mini skirts and sassy tops! I have been able to mix it with so many different styles!

Love these shoes! very comfortable could be worn daily. I have very little legs so it was great to find boots with the right circumference. The leather is of very high quality.

I got the black Troopa boots a few days ago. These boots are adorable, and totally on trend this season. The size and width is good, but the leather is stiff, even after a few solid days of wear. I really like them, and I won't be returning them, but they are stuff around the ankle.
