I have a high arch and instep, so I had a lot of trouble getting my foot in the boot and there's not as much give in the bottom as on the top. I haven't had this problem with boots before but I have to return them, I think if I actually wore them to walk around, they would break! I do like them. For me (I'm 5ft4), they are over the knee. They might be a little cheap looking, but, hey, they are inexpensive boots, what do you expect?

PROS Soft leather. Beautiful grey color. Robin Hood styling. CONS No footbed support. Despite both a rear stretch panel and the boot being listed as 15 3/4" circumference, my 14.5" calf (measurement includes tight skinny jeans) fits tightly in the boot. It is so tight that to put the boot on, it pushes/bunches up my skinny jeans at the knee. Whew that's tight!

I would not buy these boots! They do not stay up at all. I walk for a few steps and they are all bunched up at my ankle. They elastic also stretches out and looks terrible. I, unfortunately, bought them when they weren't on sale and wish I could return them. I really dislike them.

Loved how these boots looked online, however, I was a little disappointed as I was hoping for a warm cognac color, but when they arrived, the boots look more like a dusty-worn cognac color. I usually wear a 7, tried going the 1/2 size up as another reviewer suggested, but they were still really snug. Ended up going with an 8.5 instead- they're a little loose when I'm wearing tights, but fit perfectly with socks. The only other complaint, the ankle part just above the straps kind of slides down, giving you that slouchy kind of look.

Great boots. They fit well and are easy to walk longer distances in. I wish the outer material was a little stronger though - the toes and heels seem to scuff easily. I've only worn them for a couple of days and they are already scratched across the toe.

I love these boots. I am very short, only 5 feet tall, have wider calves so I am always hesitant to buy boots without a full zipper or a wide fit. These boots are a little snug when first putting them on, but do not get hung up on that. They are so comfortable. I wear them for hours. They are great walking boots and they are beautiful on. I love the versatility of up high over the knee, folded down for a nice cuff and they look great folded halfway down for shorter boots, too. The color is beautiful and they look much more expensive than they are. They are highly recommend.

I wear a size 7.5 and I could barely get my foot into the boot with my sock on. I'm going to order a full size up, I guess. The leather was of expected quality. The shaft is snug which is what I wanted so I hope getting a larger size wont result in a larger shaft.

Great boots, very good quality and well-priced. Finally a boot that is tall/over the knee (even at my height 5'11"), comfortable, modern style, easy on/off. Snug enough so it holds your leg in the right places without strangling your leg and enough room for tights or leggings. Great boot, might have to order another pair!

I love these boots. I have athletic calves and I can't ever find boots that fit. These were amazing. I love the height and the style. I wear them with skinny jeans, tights and leggings. I am going to buy them in brown too!

I love the color even though they are not leather. They scuff easily. They do slouch a bit at the ankle. There is little to no arch support despite having a wedge. The fit was awkward especially across the ball of my foot. They run a bit narrow. I kept them because I wore them out of my house and did not think it was fair to return them at that point. After wearing them since they have stretched a bit but they are still not the most comfortable boot by far.

Love the way these look, but they were too "slouchy" for my taste. Too much room in the calf and loose in the ankle - not the streamlined look I was going for.

I have very wide calves (I am not a huge person, I wear a size 8 clothes, my calves are disproportionately large compared to the rest of my body), and I have always struggled to find boots that would fit comfortably over my calves. Few pairs fit and the ones that did were so tight they just looked ridiculous. These boots fit over my calves with room to spare! I was so excited, I am buying them in both brown and black and cannot wait to wear them! They do feel like they run a bit large - I wear a size 9 shoe normally, but for me the 8½ fits perfectly in the foot (I tried them on in the store before buying on Zappos), but the calf was a bit narrower so I went with the 9 and I plan to just wear thick socks with them. I highly recommend these to anyone, but especially those ladies who have struggled to find cute, fashionable boots that will fit over larger calves!

I almost always order a half size up in boots, but since this was my frist pair of Chinese Laundry boots I decided to get my actual size (size 5). Shipping was super fast..tried them on the they were the perfect fit! Only downside is I wouldn't be able to wear them with thick socks or jeans. I contacted customer service and they guided me through their exchange process and even refunded the difference of what I had orginally paid since the price had dropped! Got my shoes next day and VERY SATISFIED with this purchase. I ordered the slate color and love the shoe!! Comfort and style all in one! Thank you Zappos you are the best!!!!!

They boots are really cute on picture and in person but when tried them on I new right away that I'm going to be returning them. I wear a size 5.5 in shoes so I always get a size 6 in boots so I can wear them with socks and these boots are so uncomfortable and I have pretty skinny feet so that says a lot. Plus on the ankle part it just sags way to big.

I LOVE these boots! I have been looking for a great pair of versatile riding boots for the Fall. I was so excited when I saw these. I went up a half size (normally a 9 - ordered a 9.5) and they fit perfectly. I have pretty muscular calves so I sometimes have a hard time finding fitted boots that actually fit and the way these are made with the little bit of stretch at the back are PERFECT! They hit right at your knee-cap and you can also fold them over to have them be a little bit shorter. Very versatile. Very comfortable. I ordered them yesterday and literally received them today before noon! I also noticed that my purchase price was more and then it went down a few hours after I ordered. I called Zappos and they immediately issued a refund to my card. Absolutely love these boots and the amazing customer service at Zappos!

Love them! Soft leather with stretchy back! I have wide calves so stretch is key! You can bend the top to make it half boots or short boots. Worth it!
