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!

I was very excited about these boots and ordered my typical size 9. When they arrived they were HUGE. I had read quite a few reviews before purchasing, but no one complained that they ran super big. I had to return for a full size smaller (I haven't been a size 8 shoe since Jr. High!) The size 8 fit perfectly and I really love the boots. I've gotten quite a few compliments on them. Just a warning for all those size 9 ladies out there...they run big!

These boots look really good. I see people wearing them on the subway every day, definitely on trend. Had to return my first pair - these run half a size too big. The leather finish is nice, I like the burnishing. They come half laced in the box and I wore them both ways. The pair I returned was very different from the one I got as a replacement, even though I ordered the same exact color. The leather quality was different and so was the color. The thread color was also very different. Guessing there isn't much consistency in production for these. The foot support isn't really there. These aren't very well padded and not something I'd wear if I was going to spend all day on my feet and running around town. The big downside for me is that there isn't a heel tap on these, it's just one piece of rubber. I don't know if people have shoes repaired anymore, maybe no one else will even notice this, but I definitely do. Having these heels repaired when they get worn out will be a huge pain. Overall, a lot better than I have come to expect from this brand. Glad I got them.

I've only worn these once so far, but they're perfect! I ordered them in brown and was pleasantly surprised to see that the color is a bit richer and darker in person. Even out of the box they're quite comfortable, and I'm sure once the leather gives a bit they'll fit like gloves. Based on all the reviews I'll definitely be keeping an eye on the soles for cracks, though.

Wonderful boot. Got it out of the box, put the boot on, and it felt very comfortable from the very first second. I did order them 1/2 size larger, but only because one of my feet had surgery, and the foot is somewhat disfigured. I ordered the perfect size. Overall: the pair of boots do look just great.

My 12 year old daughter loves these. Comfortable, walked long distances in them. Easily scuffed, however, need to get some polish to try and fix up after wearing only twice.

Great little boot! Perfect with skinny jeans, leggings, darling with a skirt and tights. I've worn them all three ways and get complimented with each ensemble! And to top it off, they are comfortable too! Definitely worthy of consideration, Zappos stand behind its products, you can't go wrong, and won't be disappointed.

So I got a pair of these for Christmas. They were great at first, but I have quite large calves, so when i put them on and zipped it up, the zipper on the right boot would pop open. So I gave them to one of my friends. Overall they are a very stylish shoe to me, you just have to have quite small calves. But i got Doc Marten's instead.

Loved the look of these shoes. They took a little bit of wearing in but once they stretched out a bit they were extremely comfortable. They did get holes in the soles within 4-5 months of wearing them and the zipper on the left shoe broke within 1 month. I just ended up wrapping the laces around the boot for security but it would have been nice to have the zipper, especially on rainy days. These boots are super cute, I received a lot of compliments, but for the price I just wish they would have held up a little longer.

This is my daughter's third pair of these Steve Madden Troopa boots. She loves them. However, they do not last very long if you wear them frequently...bottom sole cracks easily.

I would like a better quality leather, these are thin and I feel they will not hold up, also they must run big as I always wear 7.5 and these are too big.

These boots are exactly what I wanted. They look just like the picture! Some people say they have a smell but it's the leather. I actually like the smell! I'm usually a 5 1/2 so I got a 6 and it fits perfect. They go with everything!

I love them! The color is great as well as the style. They are a bit narrow in the width but are doable. I cannot send them back because of it since they are way too cute. I am giving them four stars for comfort due to the shoes running a bit narrow.

Most comfortable and versatile boots I've ever worn. Walk all over NYC in these and never any issues. So pleased with first pair that I bought a second pair to stash away for subsequent years.

Love! I stalked these boots for weeks and finally caved and bought them in black. I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure they cured the flu I was suffering from. Easy to wear the very first day!

We gave these boots to our 13 and 16 year old daughters for Christmas and both girls were stoked! They are wearing them regularly so we are nothing but pleased. As far as I know, 5 stars all around!

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!!

These boots are not comfortable and they scuff very easily. Within a week of wearing them, the toes got totally scuffed up. They already look old. Would not recommend.

I wanted to love these, but they just were not flattering at all with skinny jeans or leggings. I have big calves and these just accentuated them.
