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.

I so wanted these to work. I've wanted boots in this style for over a year now and the reviews on this one made me hopeful. Unfortunately, on me the top of the boot digs in at the front where my foot flexes when I walk. Just walking upstairs to look at them in the mirror left my foot feeling bruised. They are otherwise pretty comfortable. They fit a little loose and a little long on my slightly narrow foot. But the half size down definitely was too short and cramped my toes, so I'd say they are a slightly loose true to size. Nice quality, nicely finished inside and out, and very cute. Don't know if another boot in this style would work for me, or if they would all hit my foot where it flexes. Sad to have to send them back. Oh, and the Putty color is a lovely, soft, pale taupe.

This is a great-looking ankle boot, but it was a bit tight in the toe box...I have a bunion and some sensitive toes. I also found the sole to be slippery on most of the floors in my house. I suppose with wear, this problem would be solved. For this price shoe, I wanted something really comfortable. Go for it, if you have healthy feet!

Love these. Color is a true putty and the heel gives just enough lift that looks great with jeans or skirts. Can't wait to wear this fall. Fit is true. Imagine this will be my 'go to' shoe this fall.

Nice boot but it ran a bit narrow. I had to size 1/2 a size up. Which made the boot a bit bigger as far as length but I kept them anyways because they are very cute.

I just wanted a plain boot with a lower heel, and this was exactly what I was looking for. Ordered these in black in a 4 and a 4-1/2 because I thought they would run short like the sandals I ordered this summer from the same maker. I had to return the 4-1/2 because these do run true to size. Very soft leather and comfortable from the get go! I had to have these in brown as well!

Brands I'd also recommend: Corso Como, Naturalizer, Sam Edelman - anything in my size!

These are really beautiful and I can't wait to start wearing them this fall. They look awesome with jeans and even dresses. Definitely feels like I'll be able to wear them all day, and the heel height is just right for a casual boot. I generally wear a 6.5 in heels and 7 in boots/sneakers/flats -- the 7 fits perfectly.

I already own a pair of these boots in the putty suede and they are the most comfortable out of the box boots I think I've ever purchased. I get so many compliments when I wear then, and they are so wonderful to wear with just everything. I've worn them with leggings, dresses, and skinny jeans. They totally enhance every look and I don't know what more to say. I really love the Sam Edelman brand and I totally love these boots.

Love these shoes for fall! I bought them in a size 6, and not only are they super comfortable, but they fit true to size. Can't wait for the cooler weather to break them out more often...

Love these boots. I made the mistake of ordering up 1/2 a size, but sent them back for a straight size 8. These run true to size for me. I own several boots and sandals from this brand and love them all.

I purchased these on a last minute whim a few days before leaving for my European vacation. I was looking for something easy to walk in, neutral, and reasonably affordable. At first, my initial reaction was they were too narrow. However, after walking around my house a bit, I found they began to stretch out. I'm so thankful I decided to purchase the Petty boots, they ended up being the perfect choice! I'll definitely be buying another pair!

I am a 5'5 and 100lbs with a petite frame. I normally have narrow feet and ordered a 7.5M. The boot was too narrow and tight but still too long and there was a bit of space in front of my toes. There was also a lot of space around my ankles. From the side, the shoe looked too long and big although it had the feeling of being tight. It was quite an awkward fit, and I normally fit into many types of shoes fine. It also did not have much cushioning or padding or support. The shoe looks much better in the picture and the color looks much flatter in person. Overall, a disappointing purchase, and I am returning it.

Unfortunately, my foot was swimming in this boot. I typically wear a size 11, rarely down to 10 depending upon the brand. It's a very attractive boot, but not substantial enough for me. I prefer heavier, tighter footwear and this was light with virtually no padding. Could not even foresee being comfortable at a desk with these on. May be a great buy for those who do not mind flimsy footwear, but not for me.

First let me say I've been looking for a cute bootie for a while and landed on Petty because of the other reviews and style! You can find a million outfit ideas and images online for this shoe and it seemed like the style I was looking for. I initially ordered it in a 9 but exchanged for a 9.5 which was much better for me since I don't have very narrow feet I needed the extra width. I do tend to bounce between a 9-9.5 in most shoes so if you aren't sure I would suggest sizing up especially if you have a more medium width foot! Having said all that I am also a curvy girl and while I love the style I'm still trying to figure out if they're right for me. Most images online are of tall and very slender girls so I think it doesn't make they're legs look so short and stumpy which I'm struggling with. However it is also summer so I'm planning to try them on with some skinnes and other jeans to decide for sure! Overall seems like a very high quality shoe, comfortable enough and low heel for what I would expect to be an everyday shoe! I hope I grow to love them because I adore them but personal style and what flatters us isn't always the same for everyone!

I love these boots! I bought them in putty suede, which is a grey/nude shade. I am normally a size 6 to 6½, and I bought the 6 in these. At first, they felt much too tight and narrow, but after I wore them for a few hours they loosened up plenty! Now they fit just right with socks. It was raining the first time that I wore them, and they got some water marks on them but I used a suede cleaner and protector afterward and they look fine now. I definitely recommend these!

The Petty feels true to size, with no trouble breaking in. I wear a size 9, and the boot feels almost loose at times - which is no problem for someone with a wider foot. Very comfortable boot - I've definitely walked long distances with no complaint. The Petty has a reasonably good arch, but maybe could use some padding? I chose the Black Gladiator Leather, which feels great to the touch, and does a great job looking nice without scuff marks or scratches. All in all, love the boot. Great buy!

These are very nice plain booties. I wear a true size 9 and the size 9 was perfect. They are relatively comfortable as far as width and length (I do have a narrowish bony foot but not to the point that I would ever buy narrow shoes). The heel height is very nice if you don't like wearing heels and still look like you are. The insole is a little cushy, more than I expected, but no arch support. I don't know why they would feel like after walking in them all day. I think the toe box is very attractive, a little pointy with a rounded tip and they did not squish my toes. I tried them on with and without socks. With socks they would need to stretch just a little bit but were not uncomfortable at all. They seem to grip the floor well but are a little slippery on carpet. I am returning them. Right now I am looking for something a little more fun with some character and these are very plain. I would buy them again in the future when looking for something like this but for now, they are going back. I still give them high star rating for what they are.

I really like the look of these boots! I got the black suede, and they are very versatile and work well with many of my outfits. I waterproofed the suede when they arrived, and so far I have been impressed with the quality. They seem as though they will hold up well to frequent use. My only complaint is that they do get a bit uncomfortable with extended wear (after about 7 hours or so), particularly around the toe, which is narrow. This does seem to be decreasing as they are broken in more and more. Overall, I'm very happy with them and wouldn't hesitate to buy them a second time!

I like these boots. I wear nothing but boots and sneakers for most of the year and I was looking for a boot to transition to spring. I like the look, but find them a little uncomfortable in the toe - too slim I think. Regardless, I kept them and can leave with them.

This shoe was comfortable in my house but just didn't like the way they looked on. They Made my feet look long from the side and I just didnt feel feminine. Also there is this awful, odd smell to them and the scent has attached itself to my hands and I scrubbed three times already and its still there... scary. Im returning them right now.

I'm so glad that I found this particular color [Putty Gray Suede] on Zappos! Plus the free overnight shipping just made me incredibly happy. These booties are perfect for the dressed up and down days. With jeans, leggings and dresses. I ordered an 8.5 and I have pretty wide feet...these fit perfectly. Order them! You'll be glad you did.
