I now own 3 pair, need I say more? (Well, I will.) I wear orthotics, always have shoe "issues". These are so incredibly comfy and fit my orthotics just right and I traverse cities in them. I rated 4 for comfort because they could use some additional padding for long distances.

Really hard soles, bottom of shoes look really cheaply made. Huge bummer because I love the style and the color and the heel height. Looked great on. But cannot do that to my feet.

Extremely comfortable, nice padded sole, goes well with straight leg or boot cut pants/jeans - bought them in 3 colors. Zappos customer service is outstanding!

Super cute boots! It's a pity that my wife wants me to send them back. Oh well. Color, fit and build is true.

True to size, comfortable the first time I wore them, perfect with dressy pants. The only problem is a slick bottom - be careful walking on snow and ice with these booties.

I so wanted to love these. They worked for my friends and they worked for my fave bloggers. They are the perfect color for everything. But my narrow heels did not work with these beauties. I slipped out of them constantly. Thick socks felt weird, and sizing down squashed my toes. Alas, this love affair was not to be.

I bought this boot in suede three years ago, and I'm still wearing them. They're very comfortable and still look good. I'm glad this style is now available in leather. They're trim and look good with just about everything casual.

I ordered half a size smaller due to reviews saying they run large and I am glad that I did because they fit perfectly! I have many variations and brands of boots and I must say that these are the most comfortable boots that I have by far. Make sure to spray them with a protectant! This is my first pair of Sam Edelmans and I am hooked.

I really like fit the and look of these booties. The light putty color is a bit too light to wear with dark jeans, but otherwise great. I have a fairly narrow foot and these fit great and don't slip around when walking. They look sharp and I've received compliments on them.

There were several features about this shoe bootie that attracted me: the color of the leather, the heel height & shape, the slightly rounded toe, and the clean styling without embellishments. I ordered it in my usual size based upon other reviews and they fit perfectly. Stylish with slim cut or boot cut jeans. I am considering ordering them in black.

I had these shoes in the taupe suede and black suede, and liked them so well that I bought the leather pair. I got compliments the first time I wore them. They are great with skinny jeans. They are comfortable and I love the small heel to give me a little more height. These are fantastic!

These are the best ankle boots on the market! I love the simple styling that can truly be dressed up or down. My favorite way to wear these is with black skinnies, but they also look great with boot cut jeans and dresses. They are comfortable and well made.

I needed a work shoe that looked professional and that I'd be able to walk a few miles in without experiencing the painful aftermath of wearing heels for a day. After doing quite a bit of research, I found these shoes on Zappos and thought I'd give them a try based on the other reviews. I really love how these shoes look on me: they make my feet look narrow and sleek. They've got some inner sole support, which is good since I have some arch issues. They're nice and snug, and though it feels slightly loose in the heel, it hugs the sides of my feet and still feels secure. They're also versatile enough to wear when going on, as long as you have the right attire to match. Overall, a great product. I would prefer more cushioning in the foot bed, but most people don't have the same foot issues as I do.

Maybe I am the pickiest girl in the world, but sometimes style is all about the details. This is the second pair of Sam Edelman boots I have returned because of the ugly, cheap-looking zippers! They are a weird super shiny dark gunmetal color. They look cheap and kind of 90's. Definitely don't look cute.

I can't believe these got such a high ratings. First of all this price for synthetic leather is outrageous. I was curious to order them to see if they were comfortable because I've been looking for low heel black booties for a while now. What a waste of time! These booties are very uncomfortable. The fake leather may be soft and flexible, but the padding at the sole and heel is horrible. If, like me, you'll be pounding the concrete sidewalks of a city, avoid these or you could end up with major foot issues. The construction is also very poor, I noticed some very obvious irregularities along the sole … some area looked like they were not glued properly. Again, this much $ for mass production made in a certain country? Ugh. I ended up spending quite a bit more on a pair of Paul Green booties very similar to these (Tommy). Beautiful suede, leather insole, great arch support and handmade in Austria. If you are looking for a long-lasting, quality shoe, don't buy these.

I was very happy with this boot! It looks great but I did find it fits bigger then the usual 8.5. I should have ordered an 8 but otherwise I love it!

SO comfortable even though I just got them. In the end there are other boots that I like more in style so I'm returning these but might still get them into the future.

The shoes came just 24 hours from when I placed the order, so that's the first plus. The quality is excellent - it looks like a much more expensive shoe. The leather is soft and even, stitching is perfect, and no loose threads or anything like that. I wear a 6.5 or a 7, and I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly with a thick pair of socks. They seem comfortable, and I really love them! Can't wait for spring!

I love these boots! I purchased these boots one year ago but I purchased my normal size (size 8) and I ended up returning them because they were too big. I should have sized down a little but at the time I did not do that. I always loved the way these boots looked and after reading all of the reviews I decided to give these boots a second chance and purchase half a size down. The smaller size fit much better. They look amazing with everything! Dresses, jeans, skirts... you name it. You will not go wrong with these cute boots! I wear them as often as possible and even though the 7½ initially felt a bit close, the boots stretched out within a day or two. Do not wait, buy these now!

Bought these for work (I work in a hospital and am on my feet all day). It took a few wears to wear them in, but if you have narrow feet you may not have to wear them in at all. They're functional but still cute. The downside is that the soles can be slippery if there is any wetness outside (not much traction).

These are really great, very versatile shoes and are quite comfortable for a low heeled boot. Great for work on winter days or with jeans. The only problem is that one of the zippers broke after only a month. Maybe I just had bad luck but a bit disappointing.

These are beautiful unfortunately they were just a tad tight. I do have a wide foot and a high instep. I'd size up 1/2 a size but my regular size already had my heel slipping in the back. I'm sad these are not wider. They were exactly what I was looking for.
