Purchased for our grand-daughter. They looked so cute. NOT combat boots, but feminine and fashion forward.

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!

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 was really surprised that this boot's so good! Originally I purchased "Jenifer Tanker Boots" by Vintage Shoe Company and "Savanna Lace Up" by Durango but despite higher price when try to wear them the best look and most important feel and comfort came from the "Troopa's" which was absolutely unexpected and great surprise! Consider that other boots 2 to 3 times higher in price! The only thing I did I spent 30$ and added extra sole; now boot's quarter inch taller looks even more cool and feels better.

This is a fantastic pair of boots. I was a little hesitant at first because of some of the comments regarding the quality of the boots being poor (such as the the sole coming off), but I bought them anyway because of the other positive reviews. Since Zappos has such amazing return/customer service, I figured I would just return them if they were bad quality (even though I hate the hassle of returning things in general). However, these boots are absolutely amazing. They really are super cute. I love them! They run slightly large; I am a true 6½when it comes to shoes (with or without regular thickness socks), but I always buy size 7 boots to make room for thicker socks. But usually even with thick socks I always have some wiggle room. I find these boots to be on the larger side; they seem to be half a size larger (a size 7 feels like a 7½). I did not exchange them because I do not mind it so much. Larger boots are fine sometimes for comfort. For reference, I have medium to slightly narrow width feet. When I first got the boots, the zipper on the left boot kept getting caught because the trim on the inside of the zipper was a little long. So I just trimmed it myself with scissors and it is perfect! I love the zipper accessory because it makes the boots so much easier to put on and take off. If you are not sure whether to get these boots or not, buy them. You seriously will not regret it.

I've had these boots for three years now, if they've been making them that long, and they have not fallen apart or been defective in any way. I'm a rather clumsy person, so I tend to run into things a lot and walk with a heavy step, so the boots are scuffed beyond any repair, but I personally think it gives them more character. A lot of the reviews say that the soles fall off after a few months, but after years of wear, my soles are as intact as the day I bought them, just more run down. I would definitely recommend these boots to anyone and everyone because they go with everything and they are extremely comfortable. I've worn them on all sorts of activities from hiking to nice dinners out. These seriously are the best boots.I would definitely say that they are worth your money. If you take care of them after you beat them up or get them dirty, they will definitely last you a long time no matter what you do in them.

I tried these on in a store and really liked the fit and style. They are soft with a large folded tongue which might seem odd but somehow it works. Very comfortable for all day walking. I gave the style a 3 star because I am not a fan of the color which is a kind of fake looking distressed saddle color that has too much orange in it. But I did not want another pair of black boots and I am hoping they will wear a bit over time and the color will get better. I would have preferred just a rich brown that would distress naturally but they did not make one.

These look great, I've worn them almost nonstop since I got them. The ONLY thing is they felt really narrow on my already-narrow feet. But after breaking them in, they are perfectly comfortable. I wouldn't recommend them for anyone with super wide feet, however.

I love the look of these shoes, and have received many compliments. They do tend to chafe and blister the skin right under the ankles, and I managed to scratch the suede in the first week. If you're gentle to your shoes these are fantastic.

The Troopa is so comfortable! I have bad feet and I can wear them all day long. I don't like the laces on the Camel Leather as much as the other colors but I just switched them out.

Gorgeous, rich and versatile color. Vintage but not distressed. These boots look classic and I got tons of compliments but...they are not the most comfortable boot. They are a tad stiff and not super cozy for all day wear if a lot of walking is involved. Having said that, I would recommend them.

Adorable, great lester, A+ for style, fairly comfortable I think its going to take awhile to break in, I felt a little rubbing after wearing an entire day with lots of walking, might start out with a thick sock if they are new.

Love these! Exactly what I was looking for! Feminine combat boot...not too "manly", nice worn look and the color (Olive) is a perfect Khaki that will match anything! I usually wear an 8 but the 7.5's fit perfect. Only problem is the zipper was broken when I tried them on. Need to exchange, but I know that Zappos will make it easy!

I don't get the negative reviews for these boots...great product. Tough and versatile, but still feminine. Have owned these for over a year and they are well worn, but still look great. I am extremely tough on shoes, and the soles of these still almost look like new. The only thing is I should have weatherproofed these...the leather has started to take on a nasty green tinge - hoping polishing will fix the problem.

This shoe is the perfect combat boot! However, they are not that comfortable, and don't have enough support! If I am walking on a rough path, I can feel it. The laces are also very weak. All in all if you are willing to go for the style despite the not to great quality I recommend. Like always Zappos was great! Oh, also size wise, it is a little off, a 7.5 would be too tight (as I have tried it) and the 8 is a little roomy; however, I preferred a little room and settled with the 8.

LOVE these boots. So comfy and go with everything. I wear them almost every day. The one complaint i would have is that the front part of both shoes scuffed super easily right away.

I've been pretty happy with these boots. They're fairly versatile-- they're cute and stylely with leggings or skinny jeans, and they look professional under wider cut pants. After a little breaking in, they are decently comfortable. I have somewhat high arches, so if I walk too much in a day wearing them my feet start to hurt, but on a normal day they do fine. My only concern is about them holding up (for the price I'm hoping they'll look nice enough to wear to work for at least a few years). I've had them for about a month and so far they have held up pretty well (scuffs seem to rub off easily), though I got a little nick in the leather from the toe clip on my bike and the leather is lot lighter color underneath the top thin layer.

I bought these boots over a year ago and I am still in love with them as much as I am now! They scuff pretty easily but for me it adds to the look. The shoes are really comfortable and easy to put on. A minor setback about these boots is that my laces got worn very easily. The bottom of my shoe is starting to loosen from the leather but that is due to them being older. It is definitely a must buy!

The shoe runs a little big (go half a size smaller). Overall i like the look/design of the shoe, although the leather does look a little fake. They are pretty comfortable and decent value for the price.

Very comfortable hippie boot right out of the box. Love the purple, boots come looking very worn which is fine for me but I could see others being a little disappointed in the 'used' look.
