I love the look but I have struggled to get my foot into the boot. Too narrow and tight. Going to try a larger size.

This boot is attractive but it has caused me severe blisters on my ankles. They are small and narrow and I believe I got a pair that someone had ripped trying to get their foot into such a small boot. Steve Madden needs to stop making such tiny boots and pay attention to the part of the show that that touches the back ankle. What was he thinking? Did he put spiked card board back there or what?!

These boots are really beautiful; however, they are very narrow at the ankle and the zipper does not go all the way down the heel in the back, therefore, I couldn't get my foot into the boot. Several of the ladies in my office tried to get them on as well, and were also unsuccessful. I ordered the next size (8.5) and we all tried to get they on again. No luck! I will sadly return them.

I love the boot, contrary to the other review I think they fit very true to size. I am a 9 and ordered a 9 and they fit well. I too have a very skinny foot and heel and they fit great. I get tons of compliments on them each time I wear them. I got the grey stone washed color and they are awesome and go with a lot.

I wear a 9 1/2 and ordered a 10. I couldn't get my foot in at all. They look beautiful. I maybe will order an 11 now or 10 1/2?

Brands I'd also recommend: you need to get a bigger size. at least

Order a 1/2 size up. I couldn't get my foot in unless I did so and still even a bit of a struggle with the bigger size. Be patient putting them on! Very narrow where your foot is but hopefully the leather will stretch over time (my feet are narrow and it still feels tight). Nice quality material.

I like these boots a lot, the slightly pointed toe on them gives them a little bit more of a feminine edge. They're pretty comfortable and I find them to be true to size, but the zippers don't zip down low enough to really fit your foot comfortably in for a long time until you finally wear them in. When I first bought these boots the zipper straight broke off when I is trying to zip them. Zappos replaced them with a new pair and so far so good. After weeks of wear I can finally put my foot in without hopping around like an idiot. I would say to order them in a half size bigger than you normally would just so you can fir your foot in but if I did that they would be too big once my foot is finally inside. I have just decided that this is a zipper design error.

I think this is a good boot for a person with a narrow foot, but otherwise, you will have to go up in size. I'm a very standard size 8, normal foot, not wide, not narrow. In boots, I order 8.5 so I can insert my custom orthotics. Even without the orthotics, I couldn't get my right foot into the 8.5 in this boot. Struggled mightily and got my left foot in and found it very tight, including on the calf. I'm returning the 8.5 and will try a larger size because they are cool boots. I have the Madden Girl Zoilee, the cheaper version, and the 8.5 is perfect, very easy to zip over jeans, but they don't come in black.

This boot is made of quality materials and the stone gray color is beautiful! The footbed however, was a full size too narrow and small. I normally wear a 9.5 but lately I have been ordering 10s because of size variations. I have a very skinny foot and ankle, but I could not even get into these boots for the above reasons. The shaft by contrast, is extra tall and wide. Bad sizing on an otherwise spectacular boot caused me to return. I really wanted them to fit!

I have wanted these boots so badly! I was afraid to order them after reading the reviews. I saw them in Dillard's yesterday and tried them on. Everything everyone that has had fitting issues said is true. The heel is so narrow that you cannot get your foot in without fear of breaking the zipper. I wear a 9B. I tried on a 9½. I do have high arches. After five minutes of struggling with a nylon and a shoe horn I did get my foot in. The heel bites on top of arch bites! Half a size bigger just makes for longer, more painful boots. What a shame the leather and design is so beautiful to look at.

I've been looking for a nice, reasonably-priced pair of tall leather boots for quite some time, and I thought these were it...but they don't fit. I bought a half size bigger than I normally wear, but should have went up a whole size bigger. Can't get my heels into the boot Sadly, I'm sending them back.

I really wanted grey boots that were sleek and a low heel. I read so many reviews on other sites saying how hard these were to get on and there was a design flaw with the zipper not going down far enough. I wanted to buy them online so bad, but was scared they would not fit, so passed it up. Recently while in a larger city with a Nordstroms I tried them on. My smaller foot went in with just a few tugs, while my slightly larger left foot refused to go in. I gave up and then went back 10 minutes later to try again. I wanted them to fit so badly! I literally pulled and wiggled for about 20-30 minutes until finally my heel hit that pocket and slipped into the boot. They fit great once on! I wore them out of the store and all the rest of the day. The second time I wore them it only took about 3 minutes to wiggle in and I know after time the leather will become more supple and they will soon be easier to get on. So I must say, if you love them, try hard to get them on, and it will get easier! The leather on the stone color is really a dark grey, almost black, very pretty!

I wonder what is going on with these boots. I read all the reviews and still bought a pair because I love the look of these. One boot went on just fine but the other one took stretching, a shoe horn, and wearing a nylon to squeeze it on! I can't even say they run small because once they were on they felt about a half size too big. I have fairly high arches so that may be the problem but I think since so many of us had the problem then it must be the boot. I'm going to keep them and hope with some wear it will be easier to get on.

Very cute and just the right height (I am 5'3"). I normally wear a 7.5, but the fit was slightly too snug (of course I had no issue sending it back to Zappos for an 8). Had the same issue getting the boot on as other reviewers had mentioned with the 7.5 but the 8 went on fine. The zipper is a little noisy when I walk and the fit isn't super comfortable, but I am hoping they just need to be broken in. Snug around my calves but I can still fit leggings and skinny jeans.

Definitely glad I read the reviews and ordered a half a size up. They are a little tricky to get on because of the placement of the zipper, but are comfortable once your foot is in there. Super cute. These are a great addition to any wardrobe.

I'm normally a size 6½ - 7 I ordered the boots without reading the reviews. That was a big mistake I could not even get my feet inside the boots. I just ordered an 8 I hope they fit as I really like them.

These boots look great! Love the double zipper detail on the back. I'm a Steve Madden loyalist, so I knew for certain size 5.5 would fit perfectly. Wrong! Like most of the reviews say, the zipper isn't designed to go down far enough, so getting your heel in is nearly impossible. I struggled for nearly 30 minutes and just couldn't do it. But since they look so great, I exchanged for size 6. It's still a very tight fit getting them on, but once I shove my heel in they look awesome! As far as boots go the comfort is okay, I can wear them all day and its fine. Definitely order at least a half size bigger - it's no joke that it's a struggle getting your heel in!

Many of the reviews stated that the boot fit small but I felt they are pretty true to size. It was indeed hard to get my foot in the boot but once in they are comfortable. The back zipper is awesome, there's extra detailing that doesn't show up on the photos.

I just got these and I absolutely love them and I have had a pair of leather boots before so I know that wearing and wearing them will break them in. The only thing as noted about a thousand times is that I cannot get one of my feet in the boot! I can get the other one in, but the right one is not having it. Once I get that foot in that boot, I know I will love them and be able to gawk over them, but for now I am just trying to get the thing to fit.

Brands I'd also recommend: STEVE MADDEN :D

I am very sad to send these back, as I love the way they look. However, they are impossible to get on and to remove without the assistance of another person! I'm not sure what it is about the heel and shape, but the zipper doesn't go down far enough. I also could BARELY zip them (fairly narrow calves) and felt like the zipper would break if I pulled any harder. I normally love this brand, so I will try again!

I really like the style, but it's way too hard to put on these boots. I was sweating after I squeezed my feet into these boots. The length is good, but it's kind of narrow. I had to return.

Yes, they unzip down to the ankle, which is great. But the actual shoe of the boot is impossible to get your foot into. I would order at least one size larger then you usually wear. The boot is really good looking. I was sad I couldn't get my foot in it, and I don't have big or fat feet.

I have a very high arch and I could not even get my foot in to try on. Nice looking boots but they had to go back. I normally wear a 6.5 or 7. I thought with the back zipper, that it would be easy to get the boots on. Unfortunately I could not get my foot into the boot.
