absolutely adore these shoes.. I bought them and another pair of leather boots so i would have a complete winter collection and I have to say, I wear these about five times a week. The leather is almost buttery soft but at the same time, very durable. They are also SO comfortable! I wear them with thicker socks than normal though because they ran slightly large. But they look great and I get tons of compliments on them every day and everyone wants to know where I got them!

I got these shoes from Nordstrom Rack for a steal. Seven months later they are so destroyed, almost to the point of being comical. My big toe sticks out of my left boot and the bottoms are visibly falling off of my right one. To be fair I did wear them a lot, but I never did any crazy hiking or anything that would cause a well made shoe to fall apart. I had another pair of these boots last year and after a few months of winter they looked really worn and cheap. Now I am just upgrading to a pair of Fryes because they are a much better investment. Moral of the story: These shoes are okay if you are not planning on wearing them much.

Brands I'd also recommend: frye, doc marten

I was super excited when I received this shoe especially because the first time Zappos sent it they sent a 9.5 instead of an 8.5 like I asked (but of course Zappos excellent service took care of it quickly!) but anyway this shoe is great! They are super stylish and fit like a glove i wear an 8.5 and the 8.5 is perfect. I will say that at the end of the first day of wearing them my feet were a little sore but I'm sure they will break in. I think the price is worth it I bought this super cheaply ones and these do not compare at all with them. These booties looks like great quality overall I'm happy!

Great boot! I love the look (lace) but that fact you can zipper in and out makes this such an easy to wear stylish boot. Great to wear over skinny jeans or under a boot cut jean. Goes with anything!

Love these boots, super cute and comfy. I'd say they are true to size. Ordered the stone color to go with black and brown leggings and pants.

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.

I absolutely love these boots! They are so comfortable and look so good. I have not had them for very long, so I cannot speak to their durability. They seem to be made well. The leather is supple and I like the way this smooth leather looks. Be aware that some versions of the Troopa are brushed with something to distress the leather. I have the Mocha which is like that. Still a nice look, just different. These are true to size if you wear thin socks. I will be buying the dark brown and blue, too. They are great boots!

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.

I just got the brown color and so far I absolutely love them. They are really comfortable and the leather is really soft. Get them half a size larger and they might fit better.

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.

After trying several styles that did not fit well or walk well, I settled on these. I have plantar fasciitis, use custom orthoticS when at all possible, and am just past a 10 in size, which makes finding a good fit a challenge! These boots in black a size 10 were perfect, and adjustable enough for my orthotic to fit. I also ordered the gray color, but the fit was different, too small. Zappos returns makes it so easy to get the size right!

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.

I love my first pair of Troopa's! I bought the mocha leather ones. Wasn't sure I'd like the distressed look but I do. They look great with leggings. They were very comfortable but after standing and walking for 5 hours or so my feet did hurt. But I mostly wear sneakers, so maybe that's why. I'll definitely be buying more in other colors.

I really like these boots. I normally wear a size 9 but ordered the 8 1/2 because I usually wear that size in SM. They fit good, just a little loose but will wear thick socks with them since it's cold.

I love these boots! They're a bit overpriced for unlined leather. But, the quality really isn't bad. I would not suggest them as "winter boots" however. I used to live in Toronto, and I know these would not hold up well to the heavy snow and wet mush. But I live in Orlando now and these are perfect for the mild Florida falls and winters. They also fit great. I am a short yet wide, size 8, and sometimes boots are too long and narrow for my feet, but these fit great, and eventually mold to your foot a bit. A great buy if you're looking for something cute, comfortable and somewhat practical.

Ordered these and opened the box to find one of the zippers was stuck at bottom and had an opening in the zipper like it was about to run. This is my 2nd pair of Maddens I'm having to return within a week or so due to the bad zipper. Not happy. I love the boot but can't wear the boot if zipper is messed up.

I bought these for my 13 year old daughter and she loves them. She says they are super comfy and she loves the side zipper for easy on/offs. These run true to size too.

I thought these were a great pair of shoes. I already have them in black and I needed a brown pair to go with some clothes. I got them from Zapposa no I thought it was funny that the box was a brown, plain shoe box, not white with the Steve Madden logo. Then I noticed that the bottom of the shoes are WORN. And I'm not talking just a little bit of wear. I inspected the shoes and the soles looked to be worn multiple times and even the leather on the shoe was not in brand new condition. This has never happened to me before, but I was quite upset. I sent them right back!

Bought the brown leather pair for my daughter and she loved them. After wearing them a few times, I noticed very bright scuff marks on the toes. Not a big deal, until I tried to polish them. Not sure what kind of cow produced this leather, but the boots won't absorb any polish whatsoever. Like trying to polish plastic - nothing absorbs! The "brown" dye on these boots is more of a flake of coloring, and easily scuffed off (and the color underneath is very, very light). Returned the boots. I would not recommend purchasing these at all. (But wonderful customer service by Zappos, thank you!)

Bought these boots thinking I was getting another color than the one that arrived. Sort of saddened me; however, very comfy and will keep them. True to size. I'm a 5 1/2. Thought I was getting green ones but there actually a grayish. Oh well. Like I said, a keeper.
