I love these boots! First time ever ordering shoes online and I hit the jackpot. As others have said, there was no breaking in period. They are THE most comfortable boots I've ever owned. My orthotics fit perfectly but due to narrow feet, have to wear heavier socks. So happy to have found Romika.

Yay Zappos reviewers! I had been searching for walking boots/shoes that don't look too dorky for an upcoming trip to Europe and ordered these based on the reviews. And they are great! Thank you! For other potential buyers: I wear a 7.5 wide or 8M and the 39 in these fits fine, room for heavy socks (or maybe an extra insole, not that it's necessary) but 39 is definitely the right size for an American size 8 foot. They run a bit wide in the instep (great news for some of us), and the heel does seem lower/flatter in person than it appears in the images online, and the leather is soft so they feel comfortable right out of the box. I did notice a lot of squeaking from the plastic sole on hard floor surfaces, but hopefully over time they will scuff up and that will diminish. In any case, not a deal breaker.

These boots are extremely comfortable... Nice looking too. They are much roomier than expected and heel is a little lower than it looks in photo. I can't decide weather to order a smaller size or wear them with thick socks. I usually wear a 7 and ordered a 38. Beautiful rich brown color.

I love this boot! It is perfectly comfortable, lovely to look at, and makes me happy every time I put them on. Glad I got the brown. It is a lovely shade. Also keeps my feet toasty.

Soft leather, good support, easy on/off and the adjustable buckles are icing on the cake. Very pleased and these will be perfect for travel. I normally wear a size 9, and the 40 is just right. My feet are slightly wide but the leather is soft enough to accommodate.

Super cute and comfy boot! Right out of the box it was comfortable. The 38 (US size 7.5) was a little big, but I prefer my bots roomy for thick socks and so my feet don't fall asleep. They look cute with skinny jeans, skirts and straight leg jeans rolled up a bit. Worth the price.

I really love these boots. They are so stylish and edgy, and look great with straight jeans. What is really great is how comfortable they are. Almost feels like I'm wearing slippers. Comfortable from the moment I put them on.

I walk everywhere, and quite literally run my shoes into the ground. Having recently slaughtered my go-to shoes with my relentless pedestrian tendencies, I needed to find a good all-rounder boot for an upcoming trip abroad. It needed to be flat, comfortable, and something that could dress up or down. And, crucially, it needed to be built tough enough to withstand a lot of miles. After looking at possibly every boot on Zappos, the Citylight 27 looked like the best match. When it arrived, I fell in love. Super comfy straight out of the box, no breaking in or blisters, and lined with a lovely, velvety leather lining. (Seriously, it feels great on bare feet, though I'll spare it the abuse and stick to socks.) I'm usually an 8.5, sometimes 9, and I went for the 8.5, which fit perfectly. So far, I've walked these all over San Francisco, and I'm loving them. They look cool, they feel fabulous, and I'm fairly confident that their construction will meet my needs. I'm going to sling some mink oil (or similar) on them to weatherproof a bit, but otherwise, they were my ideal boots right off the shelf.

These are really beautiful, comfortable boots! I love the amount of cushioning and support. I usually wear a size 5 for sandals/pumps, but always a 6 for boots. So, I thought that I made a mistake when I ordered an EU size 36 (sizes 5 to 5.5), that maybe I should have ordered size 37. But it turns out they're perfect, so these boots may run a tad large, up to a 1/2-size. (To me, they fit like a 5.5 to 6, but closer to 6.)

I have been looking for cute boots that I could wear all day without pain for years. Broke down and got these expensive ones in the hopes that they'd be wearable. They are! I've found my boots! I've got wide feet, but hoped these would stretch out to accommodate; no need, as they are plenty wide. Will probably get new insoles for additional arch support, but if you don't have high arches, as I do, these would be fine.

from BOISE, IDAHO

I recently bought a pair of Romika boots "Citylight 27" I had am 60 years old & as with many women my age we have feet issues & for me it's more serious as I crushed my left foot years ago so it's so hard to find a pair of boots that will work with both feet. With that being said, the style of these boots are extremely clever & so hard to find such an excellent balance of good looks, fun & yet tremendously comfortable. It has that ability to be so easy to get into, yet they are secure on my feet, they are incredibly comfortable & allow my feet to improve my walking with joy instead of pain & the heel size is perfect. The only problem: they need to have many more options with this boot in colors such as taupe & lighter beige for summer wear as many bikers also love this boot with it's fun look & stable heel & wear. I would also love to see it in a gold metallic & Alligator Grey as well. I would buy every color if you had them as this is the very first boot that truly solves every foot issue I have, & I have a lot. Some solve one problem but not others but this boot solves all my feet issues. This boot does everything! I have tried on dozens & dozens & dozens of boots & none of them come even close to solving every single foot issue I have! This will be your favorite boot no matter your age.

To anyone looking for an AWESOME boot, I couldn't be happier with my new Romika Citylight 27 boots. THE FIT IS SO COMFORTABLE you will think you're in heaven! They'll go with so many items in your wardrobe- VERSATILITY is a great asset these days! These boots are extremely well made. It was DELIGHTFUL to put them on. THEY ARE WORTH THE EXTRA money. It was my first experience buying on Zappos and I'm so glad I bought these Romika boots. Love 'em!

I love these boots! They are both stylish and comfortable, with removable insoles if you want to use orthotics. I did not need to put in other insoles, however, as they are quite comfortable as is. They look good with skinny pants or skirt and tights. They are versatile for traveling, and they performed well on icy/snowy city sidewalks. They are worth the price.

I have high arches and need good support as I am on my feet much of the day. These boots are as comfortable as slippers but with excellent support. I love them.

Love these boots. Super cute with skinny pants. Very comfy. Wore around the house for 2 hours the day I received them. I wear a size 10.5 -- I ordered these in a "42". Fit perfectly. No break-in needed. Love how quickly they arrived -- thanks Zappos.

Fit great out of the box. Very stylish and lightweight. I have not given them a day of wear but I think I'll need to wear thick socks to give more support to the metatarsal area. Not a lot of arch support. My one complaint is that these looked scuffed by a previous buyer. They did not have that brand spanking new look. The soles were clean but scuffs on the toes and ankle. I'll brush them to see if I can restore them.

These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned (right out of the box)! They are a little "short" on style/beauty, but who cares when they are this great to wear. I walked all over NYC in slush/snow for 4 days with no problems, and I teach all day in them (standing for 6 hours). You should buy them!

I really wanted these to work! My orthotics are too large and made the boots too tight. Loved the look. Wish they came just a bit wider.

Thought it would be cuter than how it came looking, but its a decent looking boot. I need it to be more fitted to my lower leg though - it kind of "came out" from my leg, making my ankle area look disproportionate. Its comfortable, but the leather looks CHEAP and the buckles kind of jingle.

I absolutely love the way these boots feel on my feet. However, they squeak when I walk and that is annoying. People will be able to hear you coming, it's that noticeable. I thought that it was just the particular boots I received so I returned and ordered the same pair. Got the same result. To spend this kind of money on a great pair of boots, I can't have them squeak. If that doesn't bother you, than you'll be happy with these boots. It was a deal breaker for me, so I returned them again sadly.

I have been on a long search for black buckled boots that are stylish and will fit a custom orthotic. These boots are perfect on all counts! One reviewer commented that they have a lot more space in the foot bed then it would seem from looking at them and it is true. These are very comfortable seem to be good quality leather and Will go well with many combinations of outfits. I can't explain how happy I am to find a stylish boot that fits an orthotic.
