I love these boots! They are cute and classy. I ordered one size larger in order to accommodate thick socks and that has really helped.

I really wanted to write a good review on these boots, but it is what it is. It is true that these boots are very nice to look at and they are also somewhat comfortable for a rain boot, but the quality and durability of the boot is most definitely lacking and for me these are the features that are most important in a rain boot. I wore them for a total of about 20 times in a 3 month period and they already have a hole in the seam around the bottom edge of one of my boots, and the other one is not far behind... they are also showing signs of cracking in other places...this is most disappointing...perhaps I just got a lemon of a pair? Unfortunately they are useless if they let water in and kind of defeats the purpose. So my suggestion is. If you want a good looking boot, these are right up your alley, but if you want quality? I suggest that you keep looking. Sorry.

Love them! Perfect combination of comfort and style, plus they were still easy to take off after a few hours of walking around. I ordered half a size up to accommodate heavy socks, definitely recommend doing so as my regular size would have been too small.

Like the boot. They are exactly what I wanted a stylish rain boot. From previous reviews I thought they would be tighter on calf. I ordered my normal size 7, but may have been able to go a size smaller. But, have room for a warm sock!

I bought these boots last year and love them. I love the design and that they are not your typical rain boot. However, the shaft has split with the quilting design around the ankle on both boots, so that's frustrating.

Gifted these last Christmas in the houndstooth print and was very satisfied with product initially. I wear these almost daily for a few minutes in the morning when I take my dog out for a walk. 8 months after purchase both boots split on the side where the two sections come together. What is worse than taking your dog out at 6am in the cold/dark? Taking your dog out at 6am in the cold/dark with wet feet...the exact reason I asked for these boots. Very disappointed.

I'm on my second pair because the first pair started to leak everywhere. Zappos was excellent with customer service & sent me the second pair straight away. Unfortunately these too have sprung multiple leaks. A real shame, very disappointing in such a comfy boot.

Okay I think I'm in the minority here, but these boots just do not work for me. I went with Sperry because their boat shoes are so ridiculously comfortable. The problem I have with these boots, however, is blisters...terrible blisters. I have relatively wide feet for a size 6, and the lining on these boots is so thick that the space for the foot is too narrow for me. That combined with the fact that these are rubber boots and don't bend well at the ankle made them rub terribly on the back of my heel. I can't wear these for longer than 5 minutes without forming a blister there (yes, I've tried no socks, thin socks, thick socks, blister block, preventative band-aids, everything under the sun). I tried to wear them outside too many times to be able to return them, so I will be donating these and restarting my search. If anyone has any suggestions for another brand to try, please let me know!

Very nice boots. Had to get one size larger cause I don't wear sock with them and a littler harder to put on. True to size, tho. LOVE them. Great color.

I followed other reviewers' advice and ordered one size up. So glad I did. The boot fits over my jeans but still snug. The boot comes up to my knee (I'm 5'2" and size 6 shoe but ordered a 7) and the shoe portion is now a little bit but doable. Colors are gorgeous.

I feel like I had a love-hate relationship with my Sperry Rainboots. Unfortunately, today, it ended in hate. I bought these boots on January 29th, and now on May 10th they already have a hole in the left foot. I bought these rainboots because I thought they would last longer than the cheapo brand-less rainboots I've bought from other places. Unfortunately, rainboots with a hole in the foot are pretty pointless. Here are the reasons why I had a love-hate relationship prior to finding the hole on my left rainboot a little over 4 months after purchasing them: - Hate: The clips on the side constantly come undone. They're really just a fashion piece, but it's not quite fashionable when you have the gold clasp swaying separately from the little rubber lip thing. - Love: These have to be by far the most comfortable rainboots I've ever owned. Truly made like the other Sperry items I own. Hate: The width is fine and they're just a little awkwardly tight around the ankle when you want to roll your skinny jeans into your socks. Lends itself to some rubbing around the ankle region which is no fun. Love: They have a nice lining to them so they stay nice and toasty when it's chilly and rainy. Ultimately, I would not recommend purchasing these boots if you don't want to find a hole in them a little over four months after you purchase them!

I just got these today, Thank you Zappos for that fast delivery! I have a very narrow foot and slim calf. I have never found a muck boot or rain boot that was near to fitting me. Although this is a medium width I can use a boot sock and this comes as close to a fit I have every had. The foot is comfortable with a moderate support. Cute enough to wash them off and head to town in. I love them! If they were narrower, I would have given Comfort a full 5 stars.

These rain boots are adorable!! I normally wear an 8 or 8 1/2, so I took the advice of other reviews and got a size 9. They fit absolutely perfect! They are so comfortable and don't slip off my heel when I walk like the Chooka (sp?) brand I tried first. I highly recommend these!

Well where can I start? One word "great". Very comfortable at first I thought it would be too big because of it having any fur inside but I was wrong they fit excellent they do not come off your feet when you walk and they are also a conversation piece I love them. When ever I wear them I'm always being ask where I brought them. They are not your everyday rain boots just "fabulous". Thanks Zappos.

Just moved here from WI & needed boots that are waterproof tho' not necessarily warm. I've had them for over a month now. They felt quite neat initially, as others described but are fine now. I bought a size 10, usually wear a 9.5. I like that they are nice & long in the leg.

For how much these are worth they should last a couple years. Wore them (not every day) for only 3 months and the shoe is already cracked! A waste of money. I will not buy from this brand again, I could have bought a pair from target for cheaper to last as long as these did.

Warning: these boots smell very strongly of rubber. I get migraines triggered from strong smells. I have had these for about a month or two waiting and hoping this smell will at least tone down some and nothing yet. My feet sweat terribly in these boots - as bad as Crocs. I wear an 11 and I ordered an 11 and they feel very snug. I am still losing some preggo weight so hoping some of the puffy in my calves will go down and they may not be so snug a little later down the road. I would be leery of ordering these if you have wide feet, are sensitive to smells, or have trouble finding tall boots that are wide enough in the calf area! There really is no wiggle room. I really do love them though and want to wear them.

LOVE these! They keep my feet dry AND warm and the light lining is just perfect. And they are super cute too! I normally wear an 8.5, and went up to a 9, and they fit perfectly.

These are fantastic in every way except that the calves are enormous. Even with jeans on, I can put both my hands inside the boot while I'm wearing it! It has decorative little buckles on the side that you think will tighten the calf up - they do not - they're plastic and don't actually hold with any tension. Purely decorative. I regret getting them and it really detracts from an otherwise perfect boot. However, I don't know other brands to be able to compare it, maybe they're all being made ginormous to accommodate bigger and bigger calves.

This is a real rain boot! I have had trouble finding boots that fit my calves and after trying on lots of styles at Target, DSW, etc. I finally turned to Zappos! I was nervous about buying this boot because a lot of women with larger calves were complaining they didn't fit...and they are snug, but they do fit! I have a 16.5" calf and any bigger would probably be a problem. I can't fit a jean in them which is a bummer, and mostly why I gave it a 4 star, but I can wear them with leggings and just roll up my jeans when necessary so it works for me. They are warm, comfortable and totally adorable! They come up a little high on me, higher than I expected as they are basically to my knee (I have sort of short legs) but I liked everything else about them so I am definitely keeping them!
