These were a gift and I love them! I am so disappointed that other colors in my size are not available, as I would have definitely ordered a pair in both the black & brown! I am thrilled to have found another great pair of vegan shoes! I did find these to run small as others have already stated.

This is a comfortable shoe, very well made and worth the money paid. Because of the lining it was very warm. It has a good tread on it for walking in the snow as long as it isn't too deep.

Perfectly amazing. I live in the high Rockies and J-41 never disappoints, winter or summer. Fit is comfortable and snug. Everything about this shoe is perfect. I bought my normal size and fits like a dream.

This shoe is comfortable and stylish. Loved the fur lining giving warmth during the cold winter weather. I found the shoe to be slightly narrow, but after a day of wearing them it loosened just enough.

I got these as a Christmas gift and asked for 1/2 size up from my usual size. I'm glad that I did because they fit perfectly. These are cozy and warm - perfect for winter wear.

These are probably the most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn. I am in love. I want to marry these shoes. Based on the reviews I ordered half a size larger than I normally wear. They would still be snug in thick socks, but in thinner socks the size is perfect and they are just super cute.

I bought these shoes to wear while traveling in airports because they are so utterly comfortable. Took them to Sedona, and ended up climbing on sandstone rocks, ledges, over challenging terrain, and these shoes were so much better than any trail shoe I have owned, at helping me to navigate this terrain. My foot literally conformed to the landscape and gave me confidence to go where I would not have ventured otherwise. And on top of all this, these are the most comfortable shoes I own. Love these shoes.

These shoes are well made, durable. The Sherpa lining and the memory foam like insole comfort your feet. They are a little snug when worn with a soak at first, but they do soften up in time. Wear them sock less and your feet are in dreamland. They have good rugged soles for grip.. very easy to slide on. I ordered the black color which looks more brownish. Overall a good durable shoe for the colder weather to be active in. Good purchase.

I have 4 pairs of J41 shoes they all look new (some are 5 years old!). I received the Barrington shoe yesterday over night shipping. Customer service told me they would arrive by 3:00 pm, they arrived at 2:58 pm. These are awesome shoes: flexible, well made and perfect for Cinti weather: light snow and a lot cold rainy days! And when you put them on ahhh! The comfort. Feels like a slipper! Thanks Zappos for the great service! Jan from Cincinnati, Ohio

Love these for comfort, but they aren't as warm as I'd hoped. They started off feeling a bit too snug, but it only took a matter of hours before the fit was perfect. (I think the fluffiness of the new "fur" lining took up extra room in the shoe.) I've had these shoes for about 2 winter months, and during that time it hasn't gotten terribly cold here in Seattle. I work on concrete that, in other shoes, have made my toes numb with cold. These shoes have prevented that from happening. But sometimes my toes still get a bit cold.

These shoes are toasty warm and comfortable. They are pretty small, maybe made to be worn barefoot, but that would make for some cold ankles in the winter. If you live somewhere cold order 1/2 to 1 size up.

I love these vegan shoes and easy on and off, and cozy warm comfort. Seems as though they will be durable too. No animals harmed for my comfort!

These shoes are very cute. I bought them because my most comfortable pair of shoes are this brand, but a different style. This shoe however was very tight on the arch. A 9.5 is generally plenty good sized for me in length, which this was. Getting my foot in the shoe was difficult, and it was uncomfortably tight on the top of my foot. Walked around in them a bit, so expect that if they weren't so tight they would have been fairly comfy. Sending them back.

I wear a size 9A shoe and based on the reviews I ordered up 1/2 size (9.5B) and the shoes my toes hit the end of the shoe so I'd have to say they must run a full size short. I did not reorder because I did not like the way they looked on my feet - the rubber toe cap curves up in such a manner that I felt like I was wearing clown shoes.

I received these in size 8 as a gift and had to exchange them for an 8½. I loved them. They are very comfortable and cute, although not as warm as I would have expected in our cold climate. Then after about three months of wearing them twice a week, the top seam on the left shoe split. I am returning them, which is sad because I liked them and have had other J-41s that were well made and great shoes.

I hate to say it, but one week after I bought these shoes, although I intiially loved them, I find that they have gradually led to an extreme, strange kind of fatigue up my calves. Never experienced anything like it before. There is a strange upturning on the pad outer edges of the pad that the foot sits on. Somehow this causes a discomfort which makes the shoe unwearable for me, and I am stuck with them. Bummer.

I wanted to love these but I should have returned them. I like the idea of them but the execution is terrible and the quality is poor. After a handful of times wearing them I'm ready to put them in the landfill and that is totally not my style! I wouldn't even gift them to anybody as their floor will get chafed and they are already showing pretty extreme signs of wear even though I've barely been able to wear them. I might donate them to Goodwill but, again, I can't see them being very good for anybody.

After about 1 month of moderate use, the top stitching on the left shoe started to separate. I returned them for a new pair but 2 months later both sides started to tear and the little decorative knot has come undone. I am really disappointed. These are really comfortable shoes but for the price, not worth it. They are falling apart and I can't wear them anymore, I have only had them for 3 months!

Shoes cracked in four places along seams on top after less than 2 weeks wearing. Cute and comfortable shoes but gets only 1 star because of poor quality, do not recommend. However, Zappos is amazing as usual and I got my money back. Great customer service, thank you Jennifer!

What a disappointment. I was so happy at first when I received my J-41 Barrington. I have only use these shoes for just a month or less and the leather is already torn right at the stitches on the top. Also interior lining the back of the shoe got loose so it feels bulky. I usually don't pay over my budget for a pair of shoes and I paid more for these and their quality is very poor compared with less expensive shoes. I just wish I could return them, since the area where they are ripped is on the top and very visible so they look ugly.

Dissappointed, they call this an all terrain shoe but I walked my dogs in them and had to turn around and put on a real shoe! There is really no sole, foot sits right on the ground, and I could feel every pebble and stone I stepped on! And now, oddly enough the back of the shoe is coming apart from the sole on both shoes! They arent durable, and are very narrow. I have had to wear them becuase I dont have any other reasonably attractive shoes, but the first thing I do when I get in the car is kick these shoes off!
