I am in love with my new shoe. It is very high quality in material and workmanship. Zappos is the best online company I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. I received my product in less than 24 hours and it shipped for free. What more could you ask for?

These boots are great. They look good outside and inside your jeans and they're comfortable. The side zipper makes them real easy to slip on.

First of all they look great! When I had just opened the box I was a little skeptical because they looked too stiff and narrow, but once I put them on I loved them. They fit my feet perfectly and theyre super comfortable. Buy them!

I bought these boots for my daughter. She chose them and she loves them. The inside zipper makes them easy to put on and take off and I have to say they are very cool looking!

Love the boots! I ordered this boot in the cognac and the color is beautiful. The leather is nice and the boot has a worn-in look that is not cheap or tacky looking. They look great loose or fully laced. In regard to the size, I purchased them in my usual size 7 and they fit. The length is right, but the arch is quite low and a tad snug getting on. If you have high arches or if you intend to wear a thick sock, I would definitely recommend going a half size larger.

If you have thin ankles and calves, this boot is for you! Comfortable and fits like a glove! Zipper is a little rough.

Love these boots. I wear an 9 1/2 and that is what fit in these as well. Maybe a tiny snug to get on, but they will stretch for sure. Wish I could get them in brown!

Oooh, I love these boots! I bought them in brown and then in black. Very comfortable. Extremely versatile cute with shorts, dresses, skinny jeans. I have skinny legs and they make me feel really cute. I own my own salon and stand on my feet 8 hours. I can not recommend these boots highly enough. Order a 1/2 size bigger. Very soft leather, especially the brown nubuck. You will love all the ways you can wear these boots. Zappos is the best if you have any problems but I know you will love these boots. Happy Fall, Welcome Winter.

I am surprised that someone said these boots run large. I went to try them on at a Steve Madden store. I have always been a 5 in women's shoes - a 3 in Mens. My feet are tiny and rather narrow. When I tried on a 5.5 they were extremely tight and I had to buy a 6 if I wanted to wear any socks with them. I've never bought a 6 in anything! I also tried on a 5 in the Harllem style (which looks exactly the same) and they were much softer and fit well, but cost more. So far I love them, but I am definitely hoping I made the right choice as it seems the Harllem style (in a true-to-size 5) was much comfier!

The shoe is absolutely beautiful! And so far, it's comfortable. The only downside is that the tongue is a little weird. You have to kind of play with it until it sits right on your shin. Other than that, the boot is so beautiful!

Had to initially send back the first pair - uneven color. But the second pair were fine. Love them, comfortable but not for long walks. Trendy, fun, great with skinny jeans tucked in. Such a good price, I also bought them in black.

I ordered these boots in the Cognac because they looked so cute and the color looked really vintage. I got a color that looked an awful lot like the tan and not the cognac. I called zappos and they sent me a new pair two days later. The new pair was the same tannish color and NOT THE COGNAC. After doing internet research it looks like the brand has changed the cognac color to a sort of new tannish color with a darker toe and heel. So don't buy the cognac online because the picture is NOT CORRECT. But the shoes are adorable and comfortable. Just buy them at the store.

Loved the boots! I was so excited to get them that I didn't notice that one of the zippers had come unstitched at the bottom until I wore them.

Had to send these back because they were too long and narrow. The color was also lighter than in the picture and the toe and heel pieces were of a darker leather making the shoe look two tone instead having a consistent aged look. Not the end of the world but since the fit was also weird.

I purchased these boots in a 5.5 because I have the other Steve Madden "Harllem boot" in that size; however, the size 5.5 in this model felt more like a 6.5. They were huge. I have narrow feet and wear between a 3 and a 3.5 in kids so a 5 or 5.5 always fits me perfect. In this boot it is not the case. If you have a wide foot, you may be fine in ordering your normal size as they do not run small and in my opinion run really big. I would need a size 5 and unfortunately the sizing stops at 5.5 so I had to return them. Also the material is another thing I want to address, all of the other Troopa boots which include the cognac and the black are a shiny leather, these are not shiny hard leather. They are more like a Timberland leather and are soft. If you are unfamiliar with nubuck material, I suggest looking at a pair of Timberlands to get an idea. Overall, the shiny leather is more appealing and if these were designed in that way, they would be much better design wise, and fit wise. Hope this helps!

I love, love, love these boots. I initially bought these for a trip to the southwest and they've held up great through a variety of terrainsâ??dusty desert, muddy fields, city streets. They're fashionable, sturdy, versatile, and super comfortable. I found the Cognac color to be darker than pictured, but I like it all the same.

The quality is excellent. The color in Cognac is beautiful and goes with a lot of things that I have. It seems really versatile. I returned the Black color because for some reason I just didn't like it nearly as much in that color. The Cognac, though, is beautiful. It's super comfortable. Perfectly true to size. I'm a 10, I got a 10, and it's perfect. I have narrower lower calves, so I was worried it would be too wide up top, but it was fine because you can lace it tighter as well as use the zipper on the side. I have narrower feet, and the lacing also helped with that. A great shoe all around. Worth every penny.

I love these boots! They go with everything! They are extremely comfortable and felt like they were broken in from the moment that I started wearing them. I love Steve Madden and these boots outdid my previous experiences with his shoes. Obviously I own a few pairs of his already. You cannot go wrong with these boots. On top of it all, they make my feet look tiny! I could not be happier with them.

Hands down my favorite pair of boots, I worship Steve Madden because of them. You may want to order half a size up, but other than that they are perfect as is. The quality is great, too. Before I bought them I read a bunch of reviews and many people seemed to agree that the bottom of the shoe would fall apart within a few weeks of wear. I have had mine for 2 years and wear them often (even in the Florida heat), and I have not had any experience with a loose sole or otherwise. I'm planning on buying them in green leather and light brown as well! They actually feel much more durable than any other pair of boots I own - trust Madden, he knows what he's doing! I strongly recommend these, not only are they a must-have for concerts and festivals, but they are a great year-round shoe and belong in every woman's closet.

I bought these to replace some boots I got at Payless last year (which I think were actually an imitation of these!). When I first got them, I tried them on with some medium socks and couldn't even get them on my feet - I ordered an 8 and I am a narrow size 8. Remembering that leather stretches, I tried again.. this time armed with thinner socks and my roommate's shoe horn. Tight squeeze going over the heel, but that did the trick. They were extremely uncomfortable for the first hour or so, but I toughed through the day and took it easy on my feet. The next day I was able to pry them on without the shoe horn, and they got gradually more comfortable each day after that. Yesterday, I wore them for too long, thinking that they were close enough to broken in. Bad idea. I walked all around downtown, and by the time I was walking back to campus my toes and heels started aching. As soon as I got inside, I ripped the boots off to discover large blisters on my right heel and covering both of my pinky toes :( I'll have to take a few days off from the boots. In that time I plan to take some leather conditioner and elbow grease to them. I ordered the Cognac color - it looks more similar to the Brown Leather color in the pictures (and the laces are more like those on the Brown) but it's exactly what I wanted. They are great boots, just be sure you remember that leather boots take finessing!!

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!

This is my second pair of these shoes. I bought the first pair 3 years ago and still wear them. I just needed a dressier, less worn pair for "stepping out." Love these stylin', slightly tough boots! Comfy from day one!

I got these boots for christmas in '10 when they first came out. THEY ARE AMAZING! When I wear them, its with my skinny jeans then on top a cute jacket with a scarf. I have even dressed them up for family pictures. They have done wonders for my wardrobe! Definitely worth the money! I never tie the shoes all the way up. I wear the strings four holes down and make a cute bow. When you do get them do try to break them in slowly, they will last longer. Something like once every two weeks. But when you receive them, DO ENJOY!

Definitely very cute and stylish. It is a little tight across the top of my foot, but I do have a very high instep. I'm sure this will get better as I break them in!
