from Washington D.C,

I bought my first 2 pair of these in olive green and red at Bloomingdales and they were wonderful!!!! Yes, you can hear the zipper make a little noise if you are in the house ALONE with no other noise, otherwise you never notice it. I get compliments every time I wear a pair of them. I ordered the black and also the saddle, now armed with all four colors!!! They are awesome with tights and skirts and skinny jeans. When you first get them the zipper is hard to unzip only if they are not on your foot, otherwise they zip up and down quite nicely! I also have all the colors of the Sam Edelman Maddox...very comfy, a little more dressy and also look very nice with skinny jeans and skirts if you are looking for another gret bootie, and I noticed they are now on sale of course!!!

I had surgery on my right foot in December and have been on crutches for over a month now with my foot in a boot. I wanted to find a boot I could wear while on crutches and still fell a little cute. I originally wanted the black, but when I finally got around to it they were temp. sold out in my size. My roommate talked me into getting Olive instead. No regrets! Fits true to size. Very comfortable even on crutches. Thanks Sam Edelman, you win again.

These are excellent boots! The grey looks super cute with black tights and a sweater dress, or more casual with a t-shirt and jeans. The wider top is nice and slimming on your legs. Just the right amount of clunky, although the noise from the zipper swaying back and forth takes some time to get used to. These are great ankle boots!

Okay, I love these boots. I would wear them just about every day if I could. They are super comfortable. One thing to be aware of - the zippers on the back kind of clink, so it's a tab on the noisy side if you want to wear them to work and you are in a conservative office. Also, it seems the pull tabs are just for show...in about a month mine ripped (sad face). Trying to exchange for a new pair, because I couldn't live without these now!

These boots are very versatile and comfortable. I wanted a boot that I can wear to work and then walk home (about 20 min walk), without killing my feet and these are great for that. I am usually between a 6 and 6.5, I got a 6, and they fit great, so I assume they would run a bit tight for a true 6.5. As others have said, the zipper is a little loud as you walk.

I love these boots! I am a regular size 8 and ordered these in a 7½ (in black) because I was worried the 8 would be too wide around my ankles. They fit perfectly and were comfortable right out of the box. I have narrow/flat feet, so someone with a normal feet may want to order their regular size. I had concerned about the zipper looking cheap or being hard to pull up/down after reading reviews, but I have not had a problem - and have gotten lots of compliments on the boot because of the clunky copper zipper. I wear them with skirts, dresses and leggings/jeans (I roll up the bottoms of pants because they do not look good ticked in). These are definitely recommended!

I LOVE THESE BOOTS! They are the most comfortable boots I own and they were that way the moment I put them on. I can't recall every having a pair of boots that did not need broken it. Yay!

These shoes are visually appealing. I really like how they were designed. What attracted me most to the shoe was black leather, then the shape of the shoe and the bootie size. I just got them today, and I cannot get over the fact that the leather seem like faux leather. It said "leather upper," but it did not say "genuine leather." I contacted support and they verified that it was leather, and I also did some research and found that on Sam Edelman's website, it was called, "distressed" leather. I was looking for a softer leather and this was hard and it felt very synthetic. I may not know what I am talking about, but the touch of the leather does not appeal to me. I am so sad that I am not 100 percent with these shoes, I want to be. I would forgo the clinking of the zipper if the leather felt natural.

I just got my boots! They look exactly as depicted in the photos! The quality is great! I ordered the olive ones, and the nubuck color is gorgeous (although not as brown as in the photos but more of a light grey tone. I knew this because I saw them on another site and that is the color they were there), and goes with everything! This was my first pair of Sam Edelmans, and I now wish I had gone down half a size, as they are very roomy like other reviewers stated. I did not want to risk it though, as I have wide feet (but not high arches), so I stuck with my size. When I put my thick Spanx stockings on, and a pair of thick socks on on top of that, they are still a bit roomy in the heel (I am thinking that is just the style and how they are supposed to be, like, slouchy and relaxed or something), so I am kind of contemplating returning them for a smaller size even though I do not really want to cause I love them so much! As for the zipper, I read a lot of complaints about the noise and quality, that it was hard to pull up and down. I do not know if I lucked out on my pair, but my zipper is so smooth, like it was pre-oiled or something, and I walked up and down the hallway and did not reflect on any noise from the zipper. Probably just depends what pair you get shipped. Overall I am really happy with this purchase, the boots are really stylish and so comfortable and look awesome with a pair of skinny jeans, and they are a great color for spring too!

They were a great fit for me. My feet aren't what they use to be so was concerned about comfort. They are my favorite boots. I love them.

Just received my boots today. They look exactly like the picture online. I'm pretty picky with quality- these don't look or feel cheap (hurray!-I've been striking out lately on finding the right boot at the right price). The heel is the perfect height to lengthen your legs and at the same time give comfortable style to any everyday outfit. It's the perfect shoe for a busy mom on the go all day long. I just wish they fit better. I usually wear a size 9M shoe, but this one runs about a 1/2 size big. My foot slips out the back of the boot when I tried walking in them. Perhaps the brand runs big? I'll need to exchange them for a smaller size.

Totally in love with these super cute and comfortable boots! I get complimented on them and asked about the brand all the time. Be wary of the zipper - tried them on at Nordstrom before buying and had to try three pair because on two of three, the zipper would barely budge. Lucked out with the pair I received from Zappos, I think.

These are the perfect camel color leather booties! I have tried on pretty much every brand bootie this season from Target to Michael Kors and everything in between. I don't mind spending more money if the boot is exactly what I want but like most people I would rather get a decent deal. These booties are the perfect camel brown color that goes with everything and the leather has that worn somewhat vintage cowboy look. However, they are also very clean and classic. I love the rose gold zipper in the back which give it a more modern look. I have seen other reviews on other websites say that the leather looks cheap. Not true! I am a picky shopper who has a good eye for style and these are not cheap looking boots. If you want a perfect boot to wear with skinny jeans, bootcut jeans or even skirts, you will love this boot!

I've read reviews complaining about the color, noise or "cheapness" of the zipper, but I have no complaints. I ordered the Black and I love them - they are exactly what I was looking for. The zipper is a little "tough" to pull up & down, but not impossible and it definitely doesn't feel/look cheap or frail. I've walked around and the zipper doesn't make alot of noise either. The leather is beautifully distressed and matte & will only look better and get softer with wear. The shaft height is flattering as it bows down to reveal the skinniest part of the ankle. They look really nice with dresses, skirts, plaids, etc. I have flat, narrow feet and ordered a 7.5 - I am typically an 8. Someone with a wider foot could probably go with their true size. They were comfortable right out of the box too!

Very cute shoe, and looks higher quality than the price. Love the olive color, goes with everything. The copper zipper is a great touch, but be warned - it's pretty jingly. The sound is drowned out on the street, but I wouldn't wear them to the office (it would sound like a cat were walking down the hall with bells on its collar). But I think this is fixable with some home brewed creativity. I bought a half size up based on other reviews, and it was WAY too big. Bought a second pair in my true size and it fit well - even had room for a pair of gel inserts, which make these wearable all day long.

I really like this boot. I was looking for something not too clunky but casual and this is perfect. It is also very comfortable. I do agree the zipper is a little cheap but not a deal breaker.

I loved these boots. They were stylish and comfortable. Unfortunately I was forced to return them because the back zippers did not work. At first, I thought they were decorative but I was unable to put on the boot without unzipping them. It was extremely difficult to unzip them and I was fearful of breaking the zipper. I hope it was unusual and not typical of this boot.

#1 choice out of 7 different booties ordered! Perfect sizing and just enough cushion to be comfortable. This nearly looks like a cowboy boot under jeans.

Love these - bought a ridiculous 4 colors when they were on sale - perfect for skirts, jeans and shorts - love them. For me they fit as the Louie - I'm normally between an 8 and 8 1/2 and always buy 8 1/2 in Sam Edelman. They didn't feel narrow as some have said and I have high arches.

The boots fit and looked good at the beginning, but the heel is not actually stacked. What appears to be stacking is a veneer which after a couple of months of wear is now peeling and wearing away, revealing a light grey base. Plastic? I can't tell, but a relatively expensive shoe for this kind of false advertising and cheap manufacturing.

Got these shoes in black and they are very cute! They are sort of a cross between booties and cowboy boots, which I really like. They also aren't too high so they are comfortable to walk and stand in for a long period of time. Like most Sam Edelman shoes, they are narrow in the toe box. I wear them with medium thickness sock though because I have narrow heels and I don't want to slip in them when I walk. If you have a wider foot though, you may want to size up half a size.

I was a little apprehensive about ordering the olive, but it is a great neutral color, more like a taupe that blends with tans and browns very nicely. The heel is a little too roomy, and my foot slips up when I walk, so I had to put a heel insert in the boot. It is the type of insert that only goes half-way down the sole, which is perfect because the toe box is just right, if not a little narrow.
