The color is more gray, I was thinking of returning them because I love the brown and blue jean look. It's taking some time to break them in! Beautiful boot!

Pretty boot but the shaft is too narrow. I wear a wide shoe size and it is a shame that they do not make the shaft wider in the shoes/boots in these sizes.

I love Sam Edelman shoes, they always fit perfectly. I wear a size 8 and these are true to size. I would not recommend wearing without socks, though! I paired them with skinny jeans and headed off to the mall...bad idea. I had blisters on my toe for a week!Get them! The style is current, and they are really comfortable with a thin sock.

Nice, stylish shoe. It goes well with a lot of different outfits. My one issue is that they're not the most comfortable shoe. I thought my pinkie toe was going to fall off in the beginning. They're much better now, but I think I'll need to get the heel replaced in a few months.

This color looked grey to me when I received them. I did not want grey booties. The shoe itself was not at all comfortable. Very disappointed. Sending them back.

Gorgeous shoe. Lots of compliments. I have huge feet -- size 12, rather wide -- and these fit in both length and width (after one or two days of stretching out a bit with wear). Hip and current design. Couldn't be happier with them!

Wore them for first time today--the suede looks as though it would be soft and comfortable, however it is somewhat stiff and uncomfortable. The actual shoe is also a wee bit narrow, and while I do have a narrow foot, this shoe is also narrower around the ankle...maybe a combination of stiff suede and narrow top is what is bothering me. Also a bit narrow in toebed and hopefully it will stretch.

So I have had my eye on these boots for quite a while! About a year now... Well I finally took the plunge a few weeks ago, and it was so worth the wait. These boots go with everything! I wore them with dresses and shorts as it transitioned into fall here and now they look equally as cute with tights and jeans. They are pretty comfortable too, only 1 day of pinching when I first got them, which is expected. Seriously these are my 5/7 day shoes. Get them now.

Beautiful boots -- but just too narrow. I wear a C width but can wear medium-width shoes if the toe-box is a bit rounded. These are a beautiful, rich teal with a perfect heel height, but they feel both shorter and narrower than a 9.5M. Suggest going up at least half a size -- and avoiding altogether if you have a wider foot. Sad to return but that's how it goes.

Probably one of the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. I am never comfortable in anything. I wore these the first day a solid 8 hours, and they never hurt. I have ordered them in 4 other colors. Just got the leopard print the other day. Gorgeous! Constantly getting compliments wherever I am. I'm all about comfort, but I still want an edgy style.

This is my third pair of these very basic go-to booties. Thought the color was closer to navy but it is not, it is more like a teal, tones of both blue and green, but looks great with jeans.

I love the putty color but the shoe runs short and narrow. I am usually a 6M in everything but would probably need to go up a half size.

I loved these boots but they are not the right color. They are much lighter and more silvery than the color pictured. I really wanted to keep them, but I don't like the color.

These boots were so comfortable from the minute I put them on. Wore in the rain and got spotted but brushed right out. Love them so much, I will buy another color in the same style.

I don't understand the high rating of these shoes and they are very poorly made. The back of the heels chipped immediately exposing the white plastic underneath, and the suede quickly became misshapen.

These boots, my first Sam Edelman's, look great and feel great. I've just realized that I'm a "boot girl" and not a "ballet flat girl" - they just look and feel better on my feet. So I got these in the black, teal and maroon shades and am keeping all three. I love the suede, it's comfy, but I do recommend using a suede treatment (I used some spray stuff from the shoe section at my local Target store) on them before wearing or they will stain. I wear either a 9 1/2 or 10 and ordered both sizes. The 10's felt better, so I would not go down a size. My feet are wide across the metatarsals and suede stretches, so while a bit tight with the first couple of wears, they are now perfect. And they are not too wide across the heel, which can be a problem with wide sizing. There's not a lot in the way of support, but unless you have plantar fasciitis or are going hiking in them, they are pretty comfy to wear to work all day; I'm up and down (not constantly walking or standing). I get lots of compliments and these are a nice compromise between a very flat, utility looking boot and a spiky heel. They look great with jeans, slacks and skirts. I really love these boots and will try this brand again in the future.

These boots are perfect. I got the black suede and they are so comfortable that, though I got them as a dressy shoe, I will probably be wearing them all the time. They seem really well constructed and they fit really well. My feet are a bit wide so I tend to get pinching with any pointier too. I was worried with these, but they seem really comfortable (have only just tried them on). The heel is a little lift and looks dressy but they are still really comfortable. They are also easy to get on with the side zip. I usually wear a 7-7 1/2 and I got a 7 1/2 to accommodate socks. The 7 would definitely have pinched my toes. Looking forward to wearing these into the spring!

Love these ankle boots...so versatile, and extremely comfortable for a fashion boot. The color is more grey than in the picture...goes with everything. I have a high arch and a wider foot and these are perfect. Could walk in them all day.

These boots look so cute but they are so cheaply made its ridiculous. The second I tried them on I could feel the heel cup and the piece over the forefoot. The leather is so thin there is no way those would hold up. These boots are a big thumbs down!

I have been eyeing these boots for a year. After getting and comparing numerous similar boots from other brands I finally decided to buy these. Originally I wanted the putty suede but the cocoa one was on sale so I bought the cocoa color. The color is not dark or too light but a delightful British Tan color (lighter than my new Madewell Transport tote in tan). I like the fact that this color goes with black, blue, green, and stone, very versatile and less dirt would show (vs. the putty color). They are comfortable to walk due to the low heel height. The suede is nice to the touch. I like the zipper being on the inside to give the boot a more polished look. I know why so many people swear by Petty, judging from thousands of photos posted online. They are truly well made, well designed, and highly versatile boots. I will get the black color when I see a pair on sale for sure.

I have received so many compliments on these boots! I got them in black leather. They go with just about everything. I wear them with dresses and jeans/pants. Looks great with a pair of pants folded up at the hem. I am so glad I bought them. They are stylish and comfortable and are meeting my fall fashion needs!

I love these booties! They fit true to size, and are really comfortable from the start. Sam Edelman shoes and boots continue to be one of my favorite brands; they are predictably comfortable and easy to wear.

These are great looking boots! I "think" they fit...and I only say that because I'm pregnant and have swollen feet. So, I'm keeping them until my feet go back to normal! Pretty sure they will work and look fabulous!

My Petty's have just arrived and I loved them right out of the box! The Putty colour is more grey- taupe rather than a light tan as it shows in the picture. But still, this bootie is so versatile and the suede is very lovely. They fit true to size I'm usually an 8-9 so I got an 8.5. Toe area is somewhat narrow that may cause an issue for people with wider feet but I believe the suede will give in after a few wearings. Great bootie and quality made! What more can a girl ask for. Besides three more pairs?
