I read mixed reviews about this shoe yet I was willing to give it a try because it's the exact style I was looking for. At first I ordered a 6.5, which ended up too narrow. I exchanged it for a 7 (thanks Zappos) and it fits just fine with plenty of toe wiggle room even with wool socks. I heard about the shoddy soles that it wears off easily and cracks. To prevent this, prior to using it, I took it to a cobbler to fit new soles with "winter grips," which came with free leather conditioning. I've had this shoe for going on one month now, worn it everywhere and have had no problem. The soles have not cracked, the leather has not scuffed and the body is holding its form. It hasn't snowed yet but I'm sure I'll be walking on icy sidewalks just fine with the winter soles. Bottom line is that I do recommend these shoes. It cost me extra for cobbler fees but I buy shoes so infrequently and tend to keep and use things forever that it's worth the extra hassle to make sure this lasts as long as it's worth.

I absolutely LOVE these boots! I first bought the cognac ones and liked them so much that I ordered another pair in black the same the first pair arrived. They look great and are very comfortable from the first wearing.

I love these boots! Because they're leather, you have to break them in. So they're a little uncomfortable at first, but I love them now.

Cute! I got them in black, size 6. They are the perfect width but a little long. I wish Zappos could stock these in size 5 and 5.5! I'll get them somewhere else in size 5 and 5.5 and see how well they fit.

These boots are awesome! They are my go to, for skinny jeans and leggins! I read other reviews about cracked soles, but mine are great so far, no problems at all. I've had them since August.

Owned a pair of these for a year...as a 13-year old girl. I wore them nearly everyday, actually wore a hole in the soles I loved them so much and my parents threw them in the trash on a hot August day they were so worn out! I got another pair but wonder if S. Madden changed factories...the new pair didn't last 3 weeks! The front of the right sole separated from the upper and the same is starting on the left now. Zappos is great and will process a refund but I am not getting these again, sadly. Love the style but fear they are no longer reliable. Will try another brand with similar look.

I am so sad. I like to wear my boots in a 6.5. I ordered these back in July and they were great. I needed a new pair and the 6.5 was way to big. So naturally I ordered the 6 and again it was too big. They are out of the 5.5 so I have to wait. I can definitely tell that the manufacturing has changed on this shoe. The laces were also quite different from my original pair. Not the most comfortable right away, so I out an cushy insole to compensate. But very stylish!

These boots are nice and soft and are a "quiet" shoe on hard floors. They are very comfortable. Cute with pants, leggings and dresses.

Love the style and the leather. I have ordered this boot more than twice. I am usually an 8.5 in most shoes and boots. But this boot was huge in 8.5, ordered an 8 still big. So now I ordered a 7.5 !! Thank you Zappos for making my boot shopping easy since I dont have a mall near me that carries steve madden boots.

I absolutely love these boots, but they do not hold up. The soles cracked within 2 months of wear and they need to be re-soled. They are beautiful boots, they are comfortable and the rest held up pretty well. I just wish they were worth the price.

The boots aren't quite as beautiful as they look in the picture, but they are very nice - comfortable, stylish. Have only had them for a month, and I'm waiting to see how sturdy they will be. Overall, I'm glad I bought them - other boots in the same style are priced so much higher.

I really love these boots (black). They fit well and go with almost anything. I have not had any issues with the soles breaking or cracking. Although, I do not use them every day. Maybe two or three times a month. I just ordered the brown ones. I may even re-order black ones just to have an extra pair because I think they are so cute. They have a rocker look but cute at the same time.

I am usually an 8.5 in steve madden shoes. I ordered these and when i tried them on they were very tight in the foot area and very uncomfortable on the heel however they were also too long and were more like a 9 than an 8.5 in length. I would not recommend these.

Cute, but very uncomfortable! Like walking on blocks of wood. Also, this is the cheapest, worst quality leather I've ever purchased. Very disappointing.

Brands I'd also recommend: choose ANY other brand

This is the third Steve Madden combat boot I've bought in the past 3 years. It's styled exactly like the previous version, but without the scuffing. The sole is rubber and a bit easier on the feet. I love this boot...it's great with dresses, leggings, jeans...whatever. Very comfortable...feels 'broken-in' the first time you put it on.

They take some breaking in but they are really comfortable cute boots. They are great in the rain too! Your feet will be perfectly dry. My only complaint is the sole is really hard so it gets tons of gravel lodged in the bottom and little chunks of it get taken out by rocks. Nothing a trip to a shoe repair place couldn't deal with though.

I love these boots! I've had my black ones forever and I'm actually ordering a second pair in the brown leather. So cute I love wearing them! My style is kind of all over the place but these boots always add that subtle edge that I love to have in all my outfits. I definitely recommend these boots!

I have been looking for a true combat style boot to wear all the time, and I just got these today. I truly love them, they are so adorable on and look exactly as I pictured they would on my foot. I opted to lace up halfway and tie around ankle slit flops round the top. I'm so thrilled, I'm usually a 7, and they fit a a tiny bit big but I figure I can wear them with a thick sock. Ordered them in black and I'm happy I did. Love, love, love.

I ordered the Steve Madden Troopa in Brown Leather, and it was by far the most hideous pair of Steve Maddens I have ever seen. Unlike in the images, the leather is very splotchy (especially around the ankles and lower leg) and much darker in real-life. The zipper is difficult to work while on; I felt like I was going to tear the leather around it before I was finally able to take to boots off. Overall, I do not recommend this pair of boots, at least not in the Brown Leather material.

I bought a pair of these at a department store two years ago for my daughter. They have been her go to boots that long. She has worn the heels down and the front is scuffed, but that doesn't stop her from wearing them. I'm going to see if the shoe repair can re-heel them and put some shoe polish on them. If not then I'm considering buying her another pair because she wears them so much. They have turned out to be a good boot and well worth the price. I paid the same for them two years ago as they are offered here.
