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!

Great boot. Can dress up with leggings, dress or shorts, or go great with jeans. Moderate comfort. Great addition to have in your shoe collection.

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.

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.

I was looking for a boot to wear every day. I got these as an early birthday present in late February, and have worn them almost every day. However, I am appalled by the quality. Within a week the toe was separating from the sole. Since I am alright with fixing small things like this, I glued it back on without complaint. I thought it was maybe how I was walking, that maybe I scraped my toe too often. Now, I do walk a lot. I walk around my campus, I walk around a lot at work, I walk around a lot in studio. But that does not excuse the soles of these shoes from developing large holes in the sole in under two months, especially for shoes that are so expensive. I do not want to have to pay to resole shoes within a year of owning them. Ever. And I now have to have the soles replaced on both shoes, which is going to be half the cost of the boots. I was hoping to at least get two years of service from these before resoling them, but I did not even come close. They are comfortable, and only took three days to break in, but I would have preferred for them to last.

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.

These boots are great, very well made. They run half a size big in my opinion, so order down. Put some insoles in because they're not super comfortable, but I also walked all around a new city as soon as I got them without blisters.

I LOVE these boots! I purchased them in black, size 8. I typically wear a size 8 in most shoes/boots and these fit PERFECTLY from the moment I tried them on. My mom didn't know what to get me for my birthday, so she gave me money as a gift, and told me to buy something for myself; something I've really been wanting. I bought these boots with the $ and they are the BEST birthday gift I received! I haven't been this excited about a pair of shoes/boots in awhile! So cute! Extremely stylish! Very comfortable! Quality leather; can't beat the price! The zipper glides easily with NO tugging or straining. I would definitely purchase these again (and may just do so, in another color. I have my eye on the cognac!) These are EXACTLY what I was looking for in a combat-style boot!!! I wanted quality, style, and something with just a bit of an "edge", but nothing too crazy (I'm a very young 42 year old). These look fabulous with leggings (the only thing I've worn them with so far). But they would also look great paired with long skirts, short skirts with tights, skinny jeans, etc. I am extremely pleased with this purchase! And of course, I am pleased as always, with the excellent service provided by Zappos!

The soles fell apart. The uppers are still great. The sole on one foot split in half and the heels wore down almost immediately. The uppers look fine age, but the heels and soles wore down so fast. I have read a lot of reviews about customer service from this company and am expecting none. I would not buy these boots again. Leather boots are usually assumed to be made with quality materials, while synthetics, at the cheaper price point are somewhat disposable. These are the worst of both worlds, nice leather but cheesy soles. My daughter, a bit of a shoe hound, wore these 3 or 4 times a month over a period of a year before they became unusable.

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.

Absolutely love these boots. I bought them in the cognac color. They are a little darker than I expected but they look good. I live in Steve Madden boots and heels. I have a closet full of Steve Madden boots. I usually wear a 7 to 7.5 in Steve Madden shoes. Size down in these. I got the 7 and they were huge still. I am sending them back and reordering them in a size 6.5. Hope this helps your decision to order these.

I love these boots! They are very fashionable, cute with a nice blouse or a plain t-shirt. I have not had them for long so I cannot comment on the soles of the shoes. They do crease easy, but what can you do about that. Overall I like them. They are a little pricey, so I will be waiting a while to get another pair.

This is a great looking boot at a relatively low price. I'm sorry the other customers are finding they don't last long, but I'd buy these even knowing they are good for only one season: they look that good. (Though that's a little pricey for only one season!) We bought them in Stone color and they look as great as the photo. The only other way to go is to price up and go with Dr. Martens or Frye, and those can get pretty spendy, or maybe try some of the Harley-Davidsons.

I love these boots! Basic combat-style boots, with long laces that I like to wrap around. I love leaving the top unlaced so it fans out, and the zipper on the inside is super cute unzipped a little. I've had people ask me if these are rag + bone - they really do look more expensive than they are. Definitely recommend. I'd say they run about a half size small - I'm usually a 7.5 and had to exchange for the 7 - thanks Zappos!

Great shoes! Its not the most comfortable but I love the style and the real leather makes it quality. I wear size 7, not too sure if one size smaller will me perfectly, but I do feel there are still plenty of room in front of my toes. Not the shoes I would wear to work but casual wear match perfectly!

Boots were spot on for the cognac color I was hoping for and they are comfortable and really cute either with a sundress, leggings, jeans or shorts. Quite comfortable too, and true to size. May even buy a few in other colors. Definitely recommend.

Love the shoes! I was getting tired of the traditional, close the the knee, boots, and wanted something a little funkier. These are great - pair them with jeans, a dress, skirt, anything. I will say, however, that the tip of the boot has changed color dramatically. I will simply add some shoe polish, but it did happen quite quicker than it should have. Additionally, while they are comfortable and easy to wear, you may want to add a heel or foot insole. They are very flat shoes, and after wearing for a long amount of time, your feet are tired. Regardless, for a somewhat inexpensive boot, I highly recommend.

As soon as I opened the box I could tell the quality was poor. The soles look like plastic and the leather is stiff and looks fake. I didn't even try them on...not worth it. Looks like a faux leather boot that should be $19.99. Zappos replaced them right away with a different brand. I love Zappos!

I was super skeptical about these boots after reading some of the negative reviews...so glad I bought them! They are perfect and exactly what I've been wanting. They are quite comfy out of the box, however, I definitely recommend ordering a 1/2 size down. I exchanged my first pair in my true size 9 1/2 for the 9, and I still have room with socks. I'm pretty sure I'll be ordering the brown pair as well, and for $99 bucks you should too! I don't remember the last time I paid so little for such well made shoes!!!

I was extremely impressed with the style of these boots but highly disappointed by the quality. I tried them on for the first time and absolutely loved them, but when I went to take them off I found that an interior lining of fabric around the heel had ripped from the bottom of the shoe. I had only worn them once and this happened. As always, Zappos' customer service came to my rescue. I loved the style, but for this price they are not worth it. They will not last.

Shoe is so cute! I usually wear a 6.5 or a 7 and ended up buying the 7 in this shoe in stone and 6.5 in black. Both fit well. Not the most comfortable foot bed but not bad either. Can wear these laced up all the way or half way, outside a skinny jean or inside. Goes with everything. Love!

These boots look beautiful and work well fastened to the top or fastened half way and tied around the ankle. They are the perfect feminine military style boot. The only criticism is that they are very lightweight, so I don't know how good the quality is, or how long the sole will last. But they are beautiful!
