Very comfortable boots and the fit is true; so if you plan for thicker socks you may want to go up 1/2 size. They are great for town or county and no need to break them in. The first time I wore them, I traveled and walked for hours in NYC without any discomfort.

Love these boots! They were supremely comfortable right out of the box, are beautifully made, and go with everything. I was somewhat surprised to find that the leather is sueded. However, the only thing that I don't like about suede is that it doesn't like to get wet, and these boots are waterproof, so no problem there. Like my two trusty pairs of Merrell ankle boots, these boots are somewhat wide in the forefoot, giving them a slightly less sleek aesthetic (so I took off one star for style), but that wideness also makes them extra comfortable, so I'm willing to make that tradeoff. Awesome boots and well worth the price.

I splurged on these boots before winter. Not sure what to expect, but they were stylish, grippy and warm in snow. They are so comfortable I even wear them around the house all day. I walked in snow with them and they seemed plenty waterproof for what I need. These are my new favorite shoes hands down. Very happy I made the purchase. Excellent quality.

Super comfortable boots - did not require a painful break-in period. Completely waterproof, as the description says. I was wary about ordering supposedly waterproof leather boots instead of getting rubber rainboots, but once I got these I put them on and stuck my legs under the showerhead and when I took them off, my feet were still completely dry. My friends often compliment me on these as well. I wanted cute, non-plastic or rubber rainboots that looked like an everyday boot and these exceeded my expectations.

I love Merrill. I love these boots. Unfortunately, the upper part of the boot was too narrow for my larger calf. I'm not sure if the shoe is on the narrow side, or if my calves are on the fatter side, but either way the shoe couldn't zip the last 3 inches or so. SO DISAPPOINTED! The boots felt wonderful and looked great. Maybe Merrill can make the same shoe with an expanded calf size for those of us who need that. I wish I didn't have to return these.

I am a HUGE fan of Merrell! I bought these knowing I'd be happy and when I got them on my feet, all was well. I love that I don't have to worry about them getting wet or stained as they are completely waterproof and have thin insulation so my feet won't get cold in a Michigan winter.

I love this boot! I have small and narrow feet (6 1/2) and this boot fit me really nice...it has a small shaft so if you have any meat on your calves beware. I liked it so well I also got it in black. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this boot. I haven't had a chance to see how waterproof they are yet.It looks really nice and stylish too. I have to wear a heavy knee sock with these boots because my foot is narrow and they only come in medium width, but it fits fine then.

These are fantastic boots! From Day 1 they have been a perfect fit and so handsome! I have had Merrell hiking shoes for the past 8 years so knew I could trust them to feel good and fit right. I am very happy with my fall/winter boots!

Amazing boot, true to size. VERY comfortable for walking around all day. Only complaint is that the calf is a bit big, but comfort/style outweigh. Also, I recommend spraying with an additional waterproofing spray if you're going to be wearing them in the winter with snow/salt.

At last! I have searched for years for boots that would fit my wide calf, wide foot base and skinnier ankle, and were comfortable and would work for winter (waterproof baby!) and were stylish! At last, I knew it wasn't too much to ask. Thanks Merrell!

Love these boots! I have to admit that I haven't tried them in the weather yet, but I've heard they are great in the snow/rain mix that is too typical in Upstate NY. I am 5'4 and they fit about right under my knee, but they're beautiful! Over dark jeans and a nice top, they would be good to go out, or just to go to class. Very comfortable and cute. I usually wear a 6 1/2 - 7 in other shoes and 7s were perfect in this! The espresso color is a nice dark brown too.

I haven't had a chance to wear these out of the house yet (I bought them in summer for a trip in the fall), but I have high hopes for them. They're comfortable right out of the box, and they're really cute. I think they'll go with a lot of things, and I can't wait to wear them.

Just got back from a two week trip to Scotland and Iceland where it rained most days. These boots were the only shoes I wore the entire trip and they were fabulous.. incredibly comfortable and waterproof! They looked great, too. I am 5' 6" and 135 lbs. with muscular calves, wide feet with a bunion. The boots fit beautifully even with my jeans tucked in. The fit is true to size and plenty roomy so you do not need to order big. I would highly recommend these boots and think they are worth every penny.

Super comfortable from the word go but I found them a bit loose. Slightly too big & a touch more casual than what I was looking for.

I watched these boots for a while before allowing myself to buy them and I'm glad I bought them! I am surprised by how much I love these boots! They are comfortable, have decent traction, keep my feet warmer than I expected and are cute! I like the wide toe box and the low heel-to-toe drop (I can't wear heels because of calf/foot issues). I also have small ankles, so they kind of 'buckle' a little in that area but they still look good and are comfortable. I highly recommend them!

The boot is perfect... my feet are not! I have a ridiculously high arch on my left foot. The zipper on these boots doesn't go all the way down, so wearing any kind of sock keeps me from getting my foot into the boot. (They are also a little wide in the calf, but I can live with that.) I normally wear an 8.5-9... I am sending back the 8.5 and reordering the 9. Fingers crossed! They are exactly what I have been looking for in a travel boot.

I bought these boots looking for a comfortable boot to take traveling. After trying Keens and 2 pairs of Arcopedicos, this Merrell is infinitely superior. They are, in fact, incredibly comfortable with plenty of room for my toes. As an added bonus, they are waterproof! I was grateful for the reviews as I did order 1/2 size larger as suggested. If you want a comfortable boot, look no further. These boots are great on my nurse's feet and look stylish with leggings or skirts. I am wearing them everywhere before the weather changes. May even wear them on my 16 hr plane ride in the fall-that's how great they feel!

These are such nice looking boots and very comfortable even for my unfortunate feet. I was able to slip out the insole to replace with my orthotics (a huge plus for me) but the diameter of the shaft is just too large for my calves. I also ordered the low Captiva (nearly identical) and will probably keep them although I really wanted knee high boots.

I love the leather (espresso color is great too) these boots are made of; somewhat soft and suede-like but substantial enough to keep their shape when standing alone. I have a really hard time finding boots that fit my calves; most regular ones are way too small and the "wide" ones are too big. Needless to say these will work for me! The calves were really tight when I first zipped them up but after wearing around the house they seemed to have loosened up and are really comfortable. I like the location of the small amount of goring; doesn't look tacky like many other boots. I bought these for an upcoming summer trip to New Zealand (will be winter there) as need something cute enough to wear with skirts/dresses and comfortable enough to walk miles in with jeans and sweaters. I also live in Oregon so waterproof is pretty much a must for me. They do seem to run a little big but I'm actually fine with that because the arch support/cushioning is not great so have replaced the insert with a Sof Sole one which takes up more space. Props to Zappos for getting these to me so quickly; loved receiving them the day after I ordered them, for free!

Received this boot and it looked great. I tried it on and was slightly stiff at first. After wearing for a short while it loosened up as was very comfortable. As others stated it does run at least a half size large. Great buy!

This boot is a favorite, bought the black, then went back for the brown. I'm a size 11 with a narrow heel and small calves. Can be worn dressy or casual. I have stepped in some puddles and feet remained dry. I'm not a good judge for warmth because my feet are basically always cold. This is the toe shape that I look for - no pinching or scrunching. The leather is wonderful and good quality. A little tilt of the foot helps get into the zipper that seems to give some reviewers a problem.
