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!

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 love these shoes! The color is more gray than the picture, but it's a color that will match practically anything I wear. I like the leather sole of the shoe and they have a feminine look but not too dressy! I would buy the same shoe in black if the sole and heel were black instead of the brown color and just don't like that look. But, I am so happy I ordered these and I'm sure will get lots of wear from them.

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 like the look of these boots. The soles & heels seem well made, but the boot upper is layers & the suede seems sort of thin. They're not a good walking shoe for me - not enough cushioning or support.

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!

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!

Had trouble loving this boot. The color is great. The heel height is nice - just a little lift. Wasn't happy with the way the shaft curved up over the front of the ankle. Kind of a pleat effect. Made them look cheaper than their price tag. Also felt narrow on my foot.

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.

I love these boots. The suede leather is really, really soft. The lining is leather. The sole is synthetic, but unless you have your feet up, who would know? The shape of the toe is very flattering. They are true to size. Extremely comfortable right out of the box. The moss color is a greenish brown...an attractive shade. They look more expensive than they cost.

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.

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.

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.

Love these boots! They were a little narrow at first but I used a shoe stretcher for the widest part of my foot and was comfortable even after a long day at work on the first wear. The heel height is just right, and it looks great with tights, skinny jeans or pants. I think I might get them in putty as well (I bought the black).

I am a true 6.5 and felt that these were almost a half size too big. Also, there is footbed is very flat and with no padding. I never put insoles in my shoes, but put them in these boots. Once the insoles were in, the boots fit perfect to a 6.5 with socks. My feet are not narrow, nor wide, and did not have any issues with width of the boot.

Very comfortable, perfect heel height. The suede is nice too. I have a high arch and but did not have an issue with these. Good support. Zero break-in. I'll probably order the same shoe in other colors. Look great with a skirt, slacks or jeans.

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 really love these boots. They were a bit more expensive than I was looking for but were totally worth it for both comfort and style. I got the moss color and it is in between green and brown. I think the picture looks a bit more brown than they really are in person. After reading reviews I ordered a size 8 (I am usually between an 8 and 8 1/2). Also I have a narrow foot and saw reviews that said they ran a bit narrow. That is true and therefore these fit me great with socks. The first day I wore them I had them on all day and they were extremely comfortable. Look great with skinny jeans and boot cut. Very happy!

These are beautiful! I ordered my size 8 and they are too tight even without socks, so I am returning them but ordering the 8 1/2. Love the moss green which is more like a dark taupe and is rich looking.

I bought these in black, and really like the way they look. They run true to size lengthwise, but are a bit narrow. After the first day wearing them, however, they stretched out just enough.

These boots are beautiful. I purchased them on a whim. So comfy right out of the box, true to size in my opinion (I wear an 8). I purchased the olive green and it is a really rich color I'd say with a brownish hint to it. Goes with everything! I haven't worn them with a skirt yet but I know it will look super cute. Get em, you'll be glad you did. Oh, did I mention fantastic with skinnies and also for work with slacks.
