Obsessed with these. So cute! The fit is pretty true to size, but they do stretch so I would go a half size down. I have weird feet that have high arches but they fit me perfect! The zipper on the side is even cute with the fridge detail. Didn't expect that and I love it! Overall, love these...I want another pair!

These boots are adorable and I love them! They are very comfortable and go with just about any outfit I wear. I don't like big bulky winter boots and these are perfect for me.

Overall I love this boot. I could've gotten a half size smaller but the review I read said they were very narrow to buy one size up. (Not!) They don't really look too big and they are very comfortable so they will not be going back!

Bought this shoe for my sister and she loved it. This was the only place that I could find it around Christmas and I got it with incredibly fast shipping. She wears them constantly.

Very cute bootie, and I love the wine color. Warning: these boots do run very narrow. I wish Minnetonka made "wide" width shoes.

Really cute boot which I ordered in my regular size, 8 1/2, even though many reviews said they ran big. I was glad I did, with socks and a thin innersole to give some support they fit perfectly.Not sure they would do for any extended walking but were comfortable all day for normal activities. I had purchased the back zip boot to start but the zipper rubbed my heel and kept sliding down an inch or so from the top so back they went. No problem with the side zipper. Just wish they would add a little more support.

Service was so amazing, ordered the wrong size, called that same day. The very next day I received the exchanged. So efficient, friendly, helpful. After reading other reviews on the size, it truly a true fit or half size smaller. I am a size 10 and ordered an 11. Had to send them back and get my correct size (10). The 11's were way too big. But very comfortable.

Followed other reviews and sized down half size. Glad I did because I have a narrow foot and they fit great. If you have a wide foot, I would recommend sticking with your normal size as the toe box is a bit narrow. I get lots of compliments on these. I wear them mostly with skinny jeans. Very cute!

These are perfect. Just what I ordered and exactly as described. The sizing is very accurate. The best part is that I got my order the very next day! I love Zappos. I'm only sorry it took me so long to get around to buying from them. So far I have bought three pair of shoes this way, and since I'm a shoe freak, I'm sure I will be buying a lot more as soon as I can afford them. I already have several pairs in my shopping cart just waiting.

I love these boots. I got them last fall and they have held up wonderfully. The taupe suede color has weared well (no discoloration or holes) and the boots are extremely comfy. However, these boots do not have any arch support, which doesn't bother me, but I could see where it would bother some people. The traction is nice on the boot as I don't have to worry about slipping on the ice as much (got to love walking across campus in the snow).

First off, Zappos is, hands down, the best regarding shipping. I ordered these on a Thursday afternoon and received them the very next day! Second, I love Minnetonka mocs and these are probably one of my favorites. Don't get me wrong, I love the original mocs but these are my first pair of Minnetonka boots and I love them! So cute! They go with anything and are very comfortable! They do stretch out, but I like roomier shoes and as I normally wear a 7 1/2, I went down to a 7 and they're just fine.

When I first took them out of the box they looked small but they fit just fine. I am even wearing thick socks with them today & put them to the test by power walking 20 minutes to & from work already & I cut hair so I stand on my feet a good chunk of the day. I put insoles inside but they are too snug that way so I put insoles inside when I am not wearing them so they will stretch out a bit & keep there shape. I also noticed the soles are glued on so when they wear out I can get them replaced by our local shoe man. I got the wine colored ones, kind of wish I would have gotten the brick colored ones but I am very pleased with my purchase.

I received these boots, and was shocked to discover that I had been sent two left foot shoes! I promptly called the Zappos customer service number and received a replacement pair the very next day, free of charge. Thanks for the great service, Zappos! As for the boots, I love them. They are stylish and comfortable, and I can easily see them becoming my new favorite Fall boots.

I just got these boots and slipped them on and they are so comfortable. It's almost like just wearing socks. There isn't any arch support, which is super for me because I live in flip flops in the summer. I think I will live in these all winter! I ordered the wine color and it's adorable! The color is right on trend and looks cute with the leggings I'm wearing. I also think the size is accurate. I'm usually an 8, ordered an 8 and it fits the same as all my other shoes. Loving these!

Love Zappos, but hate these boots. I am returning them! I ordered them because I thought they looked nice and thought I would enjoy wearing them this winter. I used to have moccasin boots that were quite comfortable. I have a medium width foot with a narrow heel. The most irritating thing about these is that because of my narrow heel, I couldn't keep the boots from slipping every time I walked. Even worse, I had to pull my socks up repeatedly (and I don't normally have that problem with boots)! I had to add arch support and they still weren't comfortable for me. Finally, I could see the glue on these boots, which made them look cheap and sloppy. I'm going to give up on the boots and try the Merrell brand next as I have read good things about those. My boyfriend just bought a pair of the Merrell Jungle Mocs and he forgets to take them off when he gets home from work!

I absolutely adore these booties. However, I did have to return my first pair for being about a half-size too big (I'm usually an 8); but I ordered the 7.5 and I'm extremely pleased. Order a half-size smaller in these shoes, but definitely buy them!

I loved these boots! Until the zipper broke the second time I wore them. Bummer. I'm sending them back and I'm not sure if I want to order them again. Is this a fluke or is Minnetonka stuff super cheap?

I would've loved to keep these shoes. But the 'brick' color is dyed with something that bleeds onto my bare feet, on to socks. As our skin is the largest organ in the body I don't want to 'feed' it chemical dyes that are as unstable as found in my pair of Minnetonka ankle hi boots.

These shoes are comfortable and cute. They look great with skinny jeans and skirts. I normally wear an 8.5, but I ordered an 8 and they are perfectly. Hooray for Zappos!

I always order a half size down in Minnetonkas - I'm a size 6 in every shoe brand I've ever tried, except for Minnetonka. And even the 5.5 stretches out a bit, but it still fits very well - a size 5 would be too tight. Anyway, I ordered these particular booties in the wine color, and they are SO PRETTY! They're also ridiculously comfortable. I know that a shoe is good when I don't think about it as I'm walking around ...and I forgot I was wearing these! At first they were a little tight, since they do run on the narrow side, but they molded to my feet very quickly. The color is gorgeous, a perfect fall color. I'm so glad I got these, I'll be wearing these as often as possible!

Love these boots...so comfy. I already had a pair of taller Minnetonka boots in my regular size that fit so I crossed my fingers and ordered these ones also in size 6 and, yes, they fit as a six should.

I had to send these back because they were very undersized. Per the reviews posted here I ordered two sizes larger to allow my daughter room to grow, but the size 5 was half an inch smaller than the size 3 boots that she is growing out of. And they are indeed very narrow, although given the moccasin styling I think they would be somewhat forgiving in that respect. Too bad, as they are cute. But seriously this 5 regular should be labeled 2½ narrow.

Great boots. Very comfortable w sole for outside. Order down a half-size for sure. I own multiple Minnetonka boots and these run bigger. Color and style look perfect with skinny denim.

I love the look of these and I was imagining a lot of cute outfits, but they were too narrow. I work in a career that I am on my feet and have to look up to date fashion wise. I own Naots, Birkenstocks, Danskos ,etc and these were so uncomfortable that I returned them. I felt that my regular sized 8 foot would fall over the sides. They were not true to size and you definitely couldn't wear a sock in them. They hurt and rubbed when bare foot. Would not recommend.
