I like these boots. They're cute and waterproof which is good here in Seattle. Also, I have "athletic" calves and I can actually zip these up over my jeans.

I bought these boots for my daughter. She LOVED the boots! However, they were too tight on her calves. Will be trying a different style. Love the service at Zappos!

Love these boots! I've been wearing them almost two weeks. Ankle area stiff at first, which meant I could only wear super thin socks, otherwise could not fit my foot into boot. But now the ankle area has softened up, and I can wear regular socks! Even with thin socks, my feet were not cold at all even in our cold and snowy climate. Ordered my regular size 7, very comfortable fit. I can keep them on all day with no discomfort. They look stylish, and I don't need to change in and out of snow boots during the work day.

Wow, so glad I got these. They are super comfy and after a day of wearing them I'm in love. For those looking for a dressy boot, this probably isn't what you are looking for but you can probably tell that from the brand name and shorter heel. It is a great all purpose boot for just about everything else especially in bad weather. A fabulous alternative to rubber boots. I will have no issues wearing these to the office. The slimmer heel (where the buckles are) does need a tad breaking in because the material is a little stiff but this is not uncomfortable. I'll go back for the brown pair soon.

I LOVE these boots - they are incredibly comfy and my legs do not get tired in them even after standing on a hard concrete school floor and running after children all day; I work at a middle school and am on my feet a lot. I ordered a size 9 (I usually wear an8 1/2) but the 9 fits very well with socks. This boot is very attractive and just the greatest!! I was hesitant b/c of the price but I love Merrell and am really pleased that I went ahead and ordered these!

These are the best boots I have ever had. As other reviewers noted, comfortable from the first day--and I am on my feet the whole day. They look wonderful on--I have somewhat short stubby legs and boots usually do not look good, but these look great because they conform to the leg so well. And they keep my feet warm. It doesn't get any better than that!

This is another good quality footwear from Merrell. It makes your legs look leaner with the shape of the boots and the ankle straps. It was rather uncomfortable for the first few times around your ankle area because the straps were rather stiff, but it gets better the more often you wear it. I also had walked on the snow a couple of times unintentionally and I can say that it is waterproof although your feet might be a little cold because there isn't any lining inside. It is after all not meant for walking in the snow. Over all I'm happy with my purchase.

I ordered these boots because I liked the style. They fit great and run a little narrow which is perfect for my feet. I have not worn thick socks since I am trying to break them in and get adjusted to the fit. I think a thicker sock is needed because I feet get cold in these boots with thin socks. They look great on and are very comfortable too. I would recommend this style to others looking for a classic brown boot.

These are great boots. In one day I used them to go on a hike, walk in a pasture, and go out to a nice dinner. They are great in the snow with heavy socks.

I ordered these boots to travel to Ireland in December. I thought they looked stylish and versatile. They were actually the only shoes I took on my trip! I was amazed how comfortable they are, with no time needed for breaking them in. I walked all over Dublin in them and my feet were tired but fine after wearing those boots. My only complaint is, I have wide calves and when I put them on, I felt they looked like a pair of Wellies instead of stylish black boots. Perhaps that's due to where they hit my calves, the pull straps at the top and the rounded toe. From the side, however, the boots looked much better because of the stylish straps and buckle. Overall, I love them and highly recommend especially for travel. I also tested them out in puddles and wet grass and my feet remained dry.

Wonderful warm boot. Finally an ankle that isn't huge. This makes it a little challenging to get your foot in initially, but the leather gives and now fits like a glove. I have a narrow heel and wide foot, and this boot stays on. I usually wear a 10, but got a 10 1/2 to allow for thick socks. Thanks!

Super comfortable boot - cute and casual too. Length is true to size. Boot is cut a little wider than most boots in the toe area, which isn't a bad thing. Boots are water resistant, which I tested last week in a downpour - good to go! Have worn these with jeans, cords, and skirts - all with compliments.

I bought a pair of espresso Captivas in 8½ (I usually wear 7½/8 dress shoes and 9-9½ sneakers because of my long narrow feet) about three winters ago, post-Snowmaggedon when I found myself up the proverbial creek in wet-cold DC. I am so glad that I did! Not only have they been super comfortable, with ample cushioning and toe-room for thick socks, but they still hold up and have been good to me in moderate rain (granted, now I mostly wear them in Los Angeles, where it seldom rains but does get cool). I have never had to get them worked on, though it does not hurt to take any shoe in for a check-up. These are primarily functional boots whose tapered shaft follows my leg's curve for a subtly flattering, versatile look, one major reason that I made the purchase. Although I am leaning these days toward my Fryes for the office, I still stand by my Captivas for sport and for low key nights out. So, with calls for winter storms back East this weekend, these babies are definitely coming home with me for the holidays!

These are water proof. Some reviewers said they weren't but they've been working fine for me. I had to take the insoles out because they arrived smushed into the toe so were permanently bent. Okay though because I put in my orthotics and there is more than enough room even though my foot is significantly lifted up. Usually 8-8.5 in shoes, these fit in 8 perfectly.

I purchased these boots based on other reviews and they are great! I have slightly narrow feet, so there is plenty of wiggle room. I use inserts which snug them up and they feel awesome. These boots are very comfortable, from the very first time I wore them. I wear them with skinny jeans and they really compliment the look. Haven't had rain, yet, but looking forward to trying out their waterproof feature. Buy these, you will not be disappointed.

I am in LOVE with these boots, I don't want to take them off. They are comfortable, stylish and warm. This brand was recommended to me from a fellow student, and she was RIGHT! The size was right, and I can still put my wool socks on and my arch supports. They fit great! They shipped quickly, and Zappos is easy to navigate to make my shopping experience wonderful.

These boots are extremely comfortable, but appearance-wise I didn't feel like they were worth the cost. I am 5'3 and petite, and they looked a little too tall and the calves stuck out a little too far. If I were a slightly bigger build they would have been perfect.

Good fit, great look, exactly what I was looking for! I have flat feet so felt little roomier, but a thicker sock was a perfect fit.

These are absolutely the most comfortable boots I have ever owned! There was no period of adjustment; they fit perfectly the very first time I wore them. I have had many compliments and will order another color next year. Worth every penny!

I live in NH and this is a great boot for wearing through the winter. Sole has great traction for walking on snowy, icy sidewalks and I've found it to be very waterproof. The style of the boot to me is outdoorsy/casual which is perfect for where I live. I love the detail of the ankle strap which gives them a bit more feminine look. I had to order this boot a half size up from my normal size.
