These booties are amazing. I have worn my Putty colored ones so much that I recently ordered the Black too. The shaft and heel height on these are so flattering. I love the wooden sole because it allows the bootie to transition easily from season to season. I wore my Putty colored ones in the middle of Netherlands winter with jeans & heavy jacket and then Australia's end of Summer with minidresses and cutoffs. I typically wear an 8 in boots, but got these in a 7.5 - they felt a bit snug at first, even with my very narrow/flat foot, but have broken in beautifully (and quickly!). I'm not sure I would suggest those with a wider foot to size down. Bonus: the more worn-in they get, the better they look.

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.

I just wore these boots for the first time yesterday, with skinny jeans. I love them. I usually wear between an 8-9, and ordered these in the 8.5. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable. I have a very high arch and was worried that they might not work for me, but I shopped in them all day and they were nothing but comfortable. These will definitely be a favorite in my closet for Fall, Winter, and Spring!

This boot is super cute and more brown than green. I have not worn the boot yet but it feels as if it should be comfortable. I always appreciate the shoe reviews on Zappos website. I hope mine will help another shopper.

I got the Putty color. My first pair of Sam Edelmans and the quality seems alright. For the price I thought they'd seem a little more high quality but, overall, I really like these. Super cute and very comfortable. I just took a 40 minute walk in them and they feel great. I was worried that since I'm 5'4" they would make my legs look short - not so. They stop at halfway up my ankle bones so they're the perfect height to lengthen the legs. I've worn them with skinny pants, leggings, skirts - they really look great with everything!

Great basic boot. It is perfect for when you do not want to look to dressed up but still look stylish. The taupe color is perfect for letting you wear them with grey as well as browns and tans...and of course jeans.

I just received these boots yesterday, and now I cannot wait for the weather to get cooler! I usually wear a 6½, but I ordered both a 6½ and a 7. I will be returning the 6½, because the larger size is definitely better for me. These run a bit narrow and the 7 prevent my toes from being cramped in the tapered front; they do not seem too big/long, and I also have room to put in a cushioned insole if I want some added comfort and arch support. The putty suede is gorgeous, and the shape of the boot is very slim. I will be wearing these with flared and skinny jeans, skirts, and leggings in the fall. I am so pleased with these boots!

These are beautiful boots. They run very narrow. It seems like Sam Edelman boots all do. They do hurt my pinky toe from the narrowness but I loved them to much to send back. I am really hoping they will stretch. That is the only negative to these boots. They are beautiful!

Really cute boot. Not comfortable enough for me. Loved the real hair and style, very trendy and cute saw them in a magazine on a model wearing skinny jeans really cute! They hit my bony ankle wrong and they were not flattering with my twig legs 110 5'4 mega skinny legs. I like to wear dresses and skirts. They ran true to size, just very uncomfortable on my foot and ankle bone. With Zappos service you should try these, you can always return them. Zappos is the best!

I looked around for quite awhile for a short boot, and I kept coming back to this one. The boots are well made and look really nice. I usually wear a size 7.5 or 8. In these I bought the 7.5 and they fit well with a medium sock. I can wear the boots all day and my feet don't hurt, although I wouldn't choose these if I were planning extensive walking.

I am absolutely thrilled with these shoes. The moment I put them on they were so comfortable, and when I wore them for a full day of work followed by a night out, they were just as comfy. Not to mention they look fabulous. At first I did find them a little loose at the heel as other reviewers had mentioned, but with the right socks that wasn't an issue. Before I received them I was also a little weary of spending so much, but they are very much worth it and I would buy them again and again.

I love these shoes. They're completely comfortable and adorable with skirts and dresses. I am able to walk a couple of city miles in them with no problem. Wish I could afford them in every color. They run true to size and width.

I love these boots and have been longing for them all winter. Sam Edelman products are top notch and, of course, I am so happy to have them in my possession, in other words I love them. The fit is perfect and since I am a young old person I like the low heels.

This is my second pair of these boots. I bought them previously in Putty and loved them so much I purchased them in black. They fit perfectly the very first time I put them on - no blisters, no rubbing, extremely comfortable. I get compliments on them all the time and am so happy to have found such a comfortable and stylish pair of boots!

My new favorite boot. Not too high of a heel. I can wear them to the park with my 2 year old, and out to dinner with my husband. I'm an 8-8.5, and the 8 fit perfectly. I also have a thin foot and feel that a thick sock would be uncomfortable and so I'll say these run slightly narrow for a medium width.

These are the best shoes I have ever owned. I got them in early fall and kept them in the box for a week, until I decided I liked them. (I thought they wouldn't look good on my legs.) These have turned into my go-to shoe. I have worn them every day for the last two months. They never needed any breaking in and still look pretty new after so much wear. The heel is a little beat up and chipping, but I tend to shuffle my feet when I'm walking and I do a lot of walking since I live in NYC. I'm debating getting another pair in black, or possibly the putty suede. I love this shoe!

Bought these for my daughter-in-law. She loves them and they look great. As in other reviews, they are a bit loose at the heel. Otherwise, they're lovely and she's thrilled. I also noticed how difficult it is to find fashionable and reasonably low heels; heel height seems to be stratospheric these days.

I have thin narrow feet and usually wear a 7 or 7½. Since these boots run large and because I wanted to wear them mainly with dresses and tights, I took a chance and ordered a 6½. I am glad that I did! Breaking them in for the first week was a little painful, but the suede has loosened up a lot, and now they fit perfectly. Had I ordered a 7, I worry they would have been way too large after stretching out. They look adorable with anything, and have held up well to all of the walking I do in New York City so far. I love these boots!

Love these boots! I ordered my true size & it is very comfortable. Walk around for a few minutes for the toe area to adjust to your foot. I got them in black, then decided to get the moss green - read a review that it was more brown but it's not - it is a great color though. I'm thinking about the putty. Can wear these with anything! I did spray them with Scotchgard. Order them before they're gone - Zappos sent them in 24 hours!

I mistakenly ordered a half size UP based on these reviews, and it's way too big. And I do not have a narrow foot...so it's not the width that is causing the large size issue. Order your exact size, is my advice. Cute shoe.

These are my first pair of Sam Edelman's and I have to say that the quality is very good. The shoe fits true to size but a little tight in the width. I figure since they are suede they will stretch a bit. The style was what I was looking for along with a comfortable heel.

This is a very nice flat, comfy bootie. It's well made and looks good with skirts or pants. There's not a lot of padding in the shoe, but because of the low heel, it's still very comfy.
