Just bought these last week in putty and they are fabulous! Have worn them 2 days in a row all day and are easily the most comfortable boots I have. I did add a half insert for arch support since I have fallen arches, but even without the inserts they are very comfortable and a very attractive boot. Have gotten lots of compliments on them already and have worn them with both slacks and jeans. Great service from Zappos too! Thumbs up!

Love these boots. They are a comfortable height to wear all day. Didn't have to break in. I usually wear a 7 but the 7.5 fit a little better.

The width runs very narrow. The length runs 1/2 size large (so order 1/2 size down). The sole has very little padding. These are way too uncomfortable for me to wear.

I adore these shoes. They were perfectly comfortable right out of the box! After a few weeks, the suede seems to have worn down a little around the toe, giving them a well-loved look. The short heel is feminine yet easy to wear all day at work. Overall, it feels well-constructed and the black suede is deeply beautiful -- exactly like the picture. They look great with black jeans or leggings.

I love these boots. I wear them with jeans/slacks/skirts. The low heel is so comfortable to wear all day long. These are the most comfortable boots that I have owned in years. They fit true to size.

If there ever was a perfect boot, this is it! It is so comfortable. Fits snug, but doesn't bite into your feet anywhere. They are easy to walk in all day without any problems of discomfort. They look great -- I bought three pair, and finally ended up getting the black tequila snake which just came today and they are really pretty. I don't wear tall boots anymore, these short ones work well for me, and I have worn all three pairs that I bought this week with no complaints at all. Truly a good sturdy shoe, good support, and comfortable for a full day of walking. Get you some!

I have researched this shoe extensively, looking on fashion blogs, Pinterest, and the like-- I was worried about the boot looking too "long" and making my foot look big. I ordered my true size, and I wish I would've gone down half a size. I am a very "typical" 7 1/2... average sole width, average length toes, average heel width. A 7 1/2 in every other Sam Edelman shoe I've purchased, as well as majority of other brands (besides the expected half size down in Frye, etc.). The 7 1/2 looks enormous on my feet (comparable to a new born duck perhaps), and I wish I would've given the 7 a try instead. I needed them for an event, so I had to wear what I got-- so my dissatisfaction is my own fault. But I cannot believe people have reviewed this as "running small"! If you're on the edge of deciding between your true size and half a size down, go for the smaller size, unless your feet are wide (but I can certainly see the fabric stretching). I know I will be ordering a 7 in the putty color for spring when I will wear them with skirts. But for now, these black suede boots are only for skinny jeans tucked into thick wool socks. All that being said, I think they're a good value. I know that I will purchase them again!

I just got the Saddle Leather ones and I am in loooooove! They are the perfect cognac color, and go with almost any outfit. Got them as one of my go-to pairs of everyday shoes, and the breaking-in process has been so easy. Initially, the toe are felt a bit narrow (I don't have wide feet) but have already adjusted to fit more comfortably! I will likely order this same boot in other colors!

I managed to snag a pair of these "Petty" boots in the black snake color and I feel OH so lucky that I did! True to size, super comfortable (took no time at all to break in) and totally unique print... I see women wearing this Sam Edelman boot in various colors all the time, but I have never seen the snake - awesome!

I am so happy with these little booties! I purchased them in black suede and putty suede. I love how wearable these are for everyday because of the low heel. They look adorable with skinny jeans. They go with so many outfits. As far as size goes I think they are true to size depending how thick you like your sock. In boots I usually wear a size 7 or 7 1/2. These are perfect for me in size 7 which I wear a thin bootie sock (probably could even wear a medium thick sock). I would suggest purchasing two sizes and return the pair that don't fit. Zappos has an amazing return policy and will credit back your account quickly. I can wear these booties all day with no problem. Love them!

I had these shoes bookmarked for quite some time. I finally took the plunge and purchased the black suede. I'm not someone who likes wearing heels because I find them very uncomfortable. However, sometimes a little height is nice. These booties hit that mark for me. The heel gives a little lift but they're still comfortable and easy to walk in. I always expect there to be some break in time with new shoes, regardless of heel height or style. I was pleasantly surprised with these. They felt great from the moment I put them on, and continue to be very comfortable. Also, I will say, as a woman with thicker ankles and calves, booties can be hit or miss. But these seem to be very flattering. These were on the pricier side for me, but I haven't regretted the purchase once! Highly recommend.

These are the perfect black bootie! Great heel height for walking around, and the shape is very flattering. Wear them casual or dress them up- they go with everything. The leather is so soft, and feels great against my foot. Very comfortable. I bought my regular size and they fit great. Room to add a little no show sock if needed. These will get a ton of use!

These are great. I bought them as another reviewer said her orthotics fit in them without having to go up a size, and she was right! I too have to wear orthotics and they make all of my other shoes too tight, but these are perfect! And they feel great with or without. They don't pinch or rub anywhere and they are so cute and the absolute perfect style to go with pants or skirts/dresses!

This is a great little boot. I first purchased it in putty suede and liked that so much I bought another pair in black leather. I find it runs true to size and is very comfortable with no breaking in needed. It is also easy to get on and off and will accommodate orthotics very nicely.

I love these booties, super comfortable to wear all day and look great at work or going out. I also wear Powerstep insoles and they fit in perfectly, the first few wears were a bit tight but now they've stretched perfectly. Only downside is the front is a bit slippery, I might get the gripper added there.

Felt like cheap shoes, not worth the money, but the look is fantastic. I feel like they run a half size too small.

Love these! Comfortable, fit true to size, no need to break in. I was daring and packed them for a 10 day trip before wearing much - they felt fine. I bought black and light brown. Received compliments - referred them to Zappos. Saw them at department store - but they didn't sell 10.5, my size. Wore with dressy black slacks and also with jeans rolled up just a tad to meet the top of the boot. Highly recommend.

I absolutely LOVE these boots!! They are exactly what I was looking for: a cute, comfortable, go-with-everything ankle boot. And I get compliments on them every time I wear them. The color is very true to the color in the picture. They're comfy without it, but I put a Dr. Scholl's insert in them just so I could walk in them all day and chase after my 4 year old twins without any issues. I also used Kiwi suede protector before I wore them to protect against water stains. Overall, these are a great bootie for fall, winter and spring!

I am a 9 all day long. Got my size and it was too large. Exchanged it for a half size down and it was pinching my toe box and big toe was hitting the top of the shoe. The insoles feel like rocks. These are going back again. Too bad. They really do look nice on, but not at the expense of comfort.

Very cute booties and comfortable. The suede might require some care as I feel it gets dirty easily. A standard 6 usually fits me well in turns of width, but these are definitely on the narrow side. Do size up if you want to wear slightly thicker socks in them.

I really love these boots. I received them on Monday and wore them all day Tuesday. They were very comfortable. I ordered my normal size. I had bunion surgery on my right foot, so the right boot was a little snug, but not uncomfortable. I love the black reptile texture too. Very happy with this purchase.

A good, basic black leather boot. I would prefer a bit more v-shaped toe but overall the shoe is fine and will be worn at least once per week. As with most Clark shoes, the comfort level is good, especially with this lower heel height.
