I wanted to write this review to let everyone know about my experience with this shoe. Saw it online and immediately fell in love! Read reviews that said they stretch so you should order a size down. I didn't do that, because I would rather them be a little large than too small. Got the shoe and they were perfect and so super cute! The only problem is they were so uncomfortable! They were not too short, but they are just awkward. Not wide enough and forces your foot into an awkward position. I called Zappos and was ready to put these shoes in a box and return them. Because I loved them so much, I got online and read about a way to stretch these shoes since they are suede and it worked! If this shoe is too narrow or uncomfy for you and you need more wiggle room, simply put the shoe on with socks and use a hand held hair blow dryer to stretch them. Use the hottest setting and blow each shoe for a couple minutes - especially in the tight areas. Leave the shoes on as they cool and they seriously stretch! Repeat this process if you need them to stretch even more. I am wearing these shoes today and they feel perfect! I couldn't be happier now. They feel great and I'm glad I didn't return them because they look amazing! Hope this helps someone!

I had to return these super cute boots because they were too narrow in the front. Disappointed.

These boots are so adorable and warm! They are my new favorite. I would suggest if you are going to be wearing thick winter socks with them, to get your normal size. If you are going to be wearing thin socks to go a 1/2 size down from what you normally wear. I got my normal size and wear thick socks and they fit ok, just a tad bit big but this doesn't bother me. LOVE THEM!

I like the style, they are pretty comfortable but no arch support. I wish they would have some cushioning. True to size for sure.

Fast ship as always. Love the look of Minnetonkas. I buy them for our 11 and 8 year old girls. And just as the childrens, these adult mocs are extremely narrow. I was hoping to be able to share with my 11 year old, who has caught up to my shoe size! Fortunately for her, she has a narrow foot. Myself on the other hand, cant make them work. Not for wide feet!

Love these! I am usually a size 8 and they fit. We're a little snug but I also have wider feet. I had to wear them with some socks around house and they stretched pretty quick. I also have a high arch but the zipper is great! I can get my foot into them pretty easily. Super cute for fall!

I have always wanted a pair of hippie boots like these. When I ordered them I was so excited for them to arrive! Even though there was no arch support, I planned to insert Vionic orthotic supports (which really did work well); however, there is a blade of leather at the back of both boots, ~2" up from the bottom, that cuts into my heel so bad that I am going to have to send them back. I am so disgusted! They are so cute but so uncomfortable!

I always get compliments on my Minnetonka boots. They feel so comfortable like I am wearing socks or walking bare foot. I wear a size 10 in regular medium width shoes but in these I wear a size nine perfectly and can even wear socks without the feeling of tightness around my toes.

I adore these boots. I have sesamoiditis and have found Minnetonka shoes to be the absolute most comfortable ones for me to wear. They are made well, extremely comfortable, and cute as heck! They have no real arch support, but I prefer that. Like other reviewers, I found these to run a little small. I take a 7 in almost every shoe I have ever tried on, and in these, the 7 was just a little too snug. The 7.5 is a perfect fit.

I bought these as a Christmas gift for my daughter. She loves them! They are adorable and look great with just about anything. She doesn't want to wear any other shoes. And as always, exceptional customer service and prompt delivery. Thanks again, Zappos!

I really wanted these to fit, because they look so cute and comfortable, and I liked the gray color as a fresh alternative to brown. However they were just too small. I ordered them in my normal 11B size but for them to fit comfortably they should have been 11½C, a size that does not exist. Sadly I must return them.

These boots are made in the Dominican Republic. Not in USA anymore. They weighed a ton & offered no support whatsoever. I even put in an inlay-nope--felt like I was walking on a flat heavy table. It is cute, but I think there are cute boots out there that don't feel like you've stuck your foot into a cement block.

I love these shoes!! I bought them for one of my daughters who is originally a size 4 in youths, i ordered a 5 in womens and ending up having to send them back for a 6. The exchange was so easy. Will continue to order from Zappos.

I love these shoes! But...I usually (like 99% of the time) wear 8.5 and my feet were swimming in these. I exchanged for 8's and they fit better but I still think I should have gone with a 7.5.

These are super cute and comfortable! I agree with the other reviews about sizing down about half size. I normally wear a 7 and tried these on in a 6 at one of my local stores. The 6 was too tight for me to where the heel was uncomfortable and rubbing. I am happy to have found a 6½ here at Zappos as for me a half size down was perfect. If you find that they are a bit narrow or tight, they will stretch with wear and conform to your feet. While Minnetonkas do not have much in the way of arch support, they are still incredibly comfortable. I have another pair which I have worn out walking all day many times and my feet feel great. I do love Zappos and their selection and customer service cannot be beat. The only thing negative I have to say is they used to have incredibly fast shipping which is not really the case anymore. I used to get packages within a few days, sometimes even the next day! The last few times it has been at least a week. Their super speedy shipping was always something I loved so thought I would mention it.

First of all don't you just LOVE ZAPPOS!! These boots are super cute! I was nervous because some of the reviews mentioned they run narrow....but they don't seem bad to me. The only negative I need to mention is that when I received these the zippers on both boots wouldn't go all the way down. I took them to work and the janitor snipped a little stitch and it works fine now! I wear a 10 and ordered a 10 they fit great! LOVE this little bootie!

Sadly, even though I ordered a size 6, the box I received was a 5.5. Have to exchange for the size I ordered. Zappos needs better quality control for packing orders. That's why this is only 1 star - for Zappos not the shoe. But the boot is very cute and I'm looking forward to receiving the correct size.

I really love these booties. They run narrow, which is good for me, but keep in mind if you do not have narrow feet. They are very comfortable - I could wear them all day right out of the box. They are super cute with skinny jeans or leggings. And a great price, too!

I started out loving these boots. Cute color, fun with skinny jeans, and not too tight on my feet. Unfortunately the more I wore them, the more they stretched and stretched and stretched. Now my feet are swimming in them! They are headed back.

I loved these shoes! I took the advice of another review, and used a blow dryer to stretch these shoes a bit when I first got them, and it worked!! Glad I ordered, and I ordered my regular size.

I really love these. I read the reviews and they advised to go a half size down and I'm so happy I did because they fit great. I would definitely recommend these. If you thinking of getting these, don't hesitate just get them you won't regret it!

I read the reviews that stated to get a half size smaller. I was hesitant but I did order a half size smaller. The fit was great. After the third time wearing the shoes they did expand. Therefore buying a half size small will keep the shoes from being too big. The shoes are comfortable and warm. I definitely will buy another style from this brand.

Nice boot looks good on. Sole of shoe is very narrow looks as if your foot is slightly leaning to the side. Other than that the boot is great. Light weight as well.
