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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

I bought these boots right before a trip to Europe. I'm so glad I did because I walked a ton. I wound up not using the other shoes that I brought with me because these were comfortable.

I thought that I might not like the distressed effect on the leather, but I love it. Just trying them on, they feel comfortable and look great. I will write more after I've worn them a few times. Right now I like them so much that I want more colors!

Absolutely loved this boots! I was a little worried by reading some reviews about the comfort but I'm glad I was proved wrong. They are super comfortable and stylish. Color is perfect because it goes great with all kinds of outfits.

Super cute and I love how versatile these are and that they are perfect basics. Since I ordered the grey leather ones they are much more subtle than the black. I am very happy with my purchase.

Love, love, love these boots, they are comfortable, funky and I know I'll be wearing them a lot this Fall, Winter and Spring. I also bought them in black leather, the Purple boot ran a little larger than the black for some reason. But I would stick to your own size, don't go up or down a size.

Brands I'd also recommend: If you like a funky combat boot stick with the Steve Madden Troopa.

I LOVE these boots with all of my heart! They are adorable and they go with so many different styles. I have two colors so far, the black and the stone. I plan on buying at least two more colors by the end of the summer just in time for fall! I wore my black ones every day for the entire winter and did not have a single problem with them. They are extremely comfortable and stylish. I could not ask for more in a boot!

I've acquired a large collection of Troopas since 2011 and I currently own 7 pairs of them. I bought two (natural leather and the brown leather) back when they first came out in early 2011 and had a wood sole. The quality has not waned since, though the size altered slightly. The new rubber sole appears more durable and I actually prefer it to the wood. These shoes are nothing short of perfection (each and every color I own) and I get compliments on them often. They are all great to wear across a variety of styles- skinny jeans, skirts, dresses, tights, shorts, etc. The traditional black pair of Troopas I have had since May 2011 have held up through daily, rough wear. They have been across my college campus for two years in gravel, have been exposed to snow and rain (though this is not recommended in the slightest!), and were worn daily on a long vacation in Tokyo. Though every pair I have shows wear from being scuffed, scraped, and trekked across gravel, the basic colors can easily be restored with shoe polish. (However, I did purchase a new pair of black ones this past week to replace my originals...in preparation for the day they do give out.) I've found no causes for disappointment in any pair of Troopas I've bought; the soles will wear down over time, as expected, though none of my Troopas show signs of wear except for scuffs and scrapes from my own doing. I would suggest purchasing insoles if you plan on wearing these for a long day of walking though, for my arches ache if I wear them without my insoles. If you purchase lighters colors, take care though - if you get them wet, water stains may appear and are usually irreversible. My natural leather and light blue pair were worn outside when it began to rain...though they are meant to look distressed, the water spots are still there. I also made the mistake of wearing the natural leather ones underneath some boot cut jeans...the indigo of the denim rubbed onto the shoes and has faded over time thankfully. (However, these issues have not been very noticeable.) I purchased the blue denim leather ones yesterday and they are just as excellent as the first pair from 2011. If you are looking for a staple boot in your collection in any color, Troopas should be your first choice. I highly recommend them for a durable and fashionable shoe.

I love these boots! I bought these boots to replace a previous pair that I had worn to pieces over the last three years. They are the best everyday boots for a busy mom! You can wear them all the way laced up under or over jeans or loosely laced over skinnies. The zipper side makes on and off very easy without messing with the laces every time! Only wish they had some arch support.
