These boots are great! I've worn them a few times now and they are so versatile. You can wear them as shown or folded over. I get compliments all the time, even from guys!

Nice boots. I was worried about what size to order but ended up getting my regular size and they fit just fine. They would probably be great with skinny jeans but I have no problem fitting my straight legs in. I can't wait to wear them.

I bought these boots for my daughter. I actually also ordered a similar, but more expensive, brand so that she would have a choice. She preferred the Steve Madden Troopa, and the other pair went back.

Cute boots! I own these in brown and black I like that they are not so wide at the top and the laces make it easy to style a little different if you want. I have mega skinny legs - 110, 5'4. Highly recommend if you are thin in the calf. These boots look great with dresses and skirts. My daughter wears them with leggings and shorts really cute. Not made to last forever like Frye but you will constantly grab these cute little boots often! Perfect height on the heel and boot shaft. Order a 1/2 size bigger than usual for room in the toe area. Zappos, I love you!

The boots are light and comfy to walk in. Obviously if you loosen the shoe ties they'll fit perfect. (The left boot was too tight before I realized that was the problem.)

I have been looking for these shoes for months now, but couldn't find any that weren't too combat-like or that were made of real leather. I finally found these and fell in love. I can't wait to wear these more in the fall!

At first I had ordered these boots in a size 8.5 Cognac...and they wound up being way too narrow for my feet to the point where it was very uncomfortable. So I returned them and I talked to a Zappos associate because there was a pricing difference issue, and they were so helpful. I got my boots today (just 18 hours after my order was shipped) and I wound up going up to a 9.5 Tan because Cognac was no longer available. These boots, though they need to be broken in a bit, are very comfortable. Sizing up helped the narrowness issue, and I'm so excited to wear them forever! Love Zappos! So impressed with them.

Order a size up! I'm always a 5 or 5.5 at most but I ordered a six and they fit perfect. The only issue I have is that the metal parts don't have a back so I have to put them back in occasionally but besides that I love them. I've gotten a bunch of compliments on them and I can even wear them in the summer and with any outfit.

Zappos.com has to be my favorite website to order shoes from now. Saw these and had to get them. Love Steve Madden and I loved this combat boot style. Its trendy and really versatile. I put in the order and about an hour later got an e-mnail saying my shipping was upgraded for free and I would be getting them sooner which made my day because I wanted them before the weekend so I could wear them out. No regrets. Love these.

My absolute favorite pair of boots. I wear it with skinny jeans and patterned tights. They're very durable and easy to clean, too! I walk two miles in them every day, and I find them pretty comfortable.

I bought these Steve Madden Troopa boots in a 6.5 in brown leather. They fit true to size and are a nice quality, real leather and well made, albeit a little flimsy. I've been wearing them regularly for the past few weeks and feel they have held up nicely to the elements of the Midwest, are very comfortable, and are extremely stylish when worn laced up or 'relaxed,' half laced with laces wrapped around and the boot length hanging loosely away from the calf. I'm excited to wear them through the seasons, a great multi wear boot.

Not an ideal boot if you have a high arch or a wide foot. Very stiff leather so I'm returning them instead of trying to break them in. Pressed on my instep and was a very tight fit for my foot type. Even though they didn't fit and I'm returning them, I was still impressed with the overall quality and style. I agree with other reviews that these would be great with any outfit, from dresses to pants. If you have narrow or flat feet, I'd suggest checking these out. Got another pair of Steve Madden boots (Candence) and they fit great. Thanks Zappos!

These run kind of small. I normally wear size 8 but got these in 8.5. They're a little big but definitely manageable and I didn't need to break them in which was a great plus. They didn't give me any blisters and were not painful. I was worried and skeptical about getting these because I read in a lot of reviews that the soles would fall off after only a couple wears, but I have had these for about four months now and I wear them almost every day and they are still fine!

I've had these boots for about a day. One major problem that was obvious immediately: The plastic cap inside the toe of the shoe extended much too far. I can't bend my foot where it naturally bends when I walk because the plastic inside comes at least a centimeter past it. I'm not sure if this trait is prevalent for all sizes of the shoe or just for the smaller sizes, or if my feet are disproportional, but it is a problem. When I wear them the plastic edge is constantly digging into my foot. Maybe if I wear them enough, the plastic will get weakened enough so that it will hurt less. But don't count on it. The quality of the leather is nice, and the boots are very cute. I would have given them five stars if not for that one problem.

Love these boots. I ordered them along with a pair of very similar Sam Edelmans, knowing that I'd return whichever I liked least. Needless to say, these won out. It was a combination of the cute details, the easy fit, and the side zip for convenient on/off. These would be great for anyone with thick ankles or calves too, because of the wide tongue and the multiple lacing options. Hope I won't have any trouble with sole cracks, as in other reviews! For now, my only complaint is that they're a bit stiff, but I'm sure that they'll loosen soon enough.

Bought these for my teenage daughter. She loved them. The free return policy is the main reason I got them through Zappos, because you never know how shoes are going to fit & I hate paying for shipping twice. It all worked out great - no need to return!

I got these boots a month ago in black. It's really cute and comfortable but material feels really cheap not worth the price. I could have bought a no name brand for under 30 bucks. Overall, I like it. But if it goes on sale I will probably buy another pair in congac.
