These boots are exactly what I was looking for. Love the grippy soles in the snow. Very supportive and comfortable overall. Plenty of room in the shaft with the laces in the back. Sexy enough to dress up your winter wear. Only issue is that these boots do not keep my toes from getting cold. I have a wide foot and large calf and the 7.5 fits perfect on my 7.5-8 foot.

Disappointed. The seam inside the top of the boot is starting to come apart right out of the box. Bought the boots for cold northeast winters but the boot doesn't appear to be all that warm. It is cute but I don't think it is worth the price tag.

Alright, so these boots are adorable, and super comfortable! I wish it wasn't 80 degrees out right now, because I'd have a better idea of how warm they are going to keep my tootsies in the middle of a Wisconsin winter, but they seem pretty well insulated. Love these boots, and would recommend them to everyone! They are stylish and light enough that I will wear them to class and not worry about bringing other shoes to change into. I did order a half-size up which gives me just enough room for some thick-ish wool socks, if needed. Tight boots don't keep your feet warm anyway....

I tried about 10 pairs of boots and these are the only ones that came close to fitting well and looking decent! You need an engineering degree and several years of gymnastics training to get them on and laced, but once they are on they are super comfy and look great. I have a very high arch and most of the boots I tried were very uncomfortable, but these feel great and don't hurt or rub at all. I do not have skinny calves by any stretch and these fit me fine - I am able to lace them without any gaping. My toes did get cold after standing around in the snow for two hours, but I think the sacrifice is worth it for the comfort and style.

I absolutely love these boots! I bought them and took them on a month long trip to the east coast and we walked miles and miles. They kept my feet warm, dry, and comfortable. And several people told me how cute they were! These are a must buy!

I love these boots. I can easily tuck my jeans into the boots, due to the side zipper and laces. Now that I have worn them a few times, I just slip my foot in with my jeans and zip them up...no need to deal with the laces at all! They fit any calf size, because of the lacing in the back, too. I get compliments on my boots all of the time. The boots are also very warm. I wear these when I am in the high plains of New Mexico, where it can get a lot of snow and easily get below 0 with wind chill factor. These boots are wind proof, water/snow proof and comfy. After I bought these, I took them to a professional bootery/leather (boot/shoe) work shop in Albuquerque to have them professionally waterproofed. I was told there was no need, because the quality of leather and the way the boots were constructed, they were perfect just as they were! They also have super arch support. I generally wear a size 7. I purchased a 7.5, so I could wear a thicker wool sock. I definitely recommend these boots!

Am very excited about these boots and can't wait for the upcoming winter! Thank you Zappos for your help on deciding which boots to get. And also on your speedy delivery. These boots a very stylish, and easy to get on and off and it is waterproof so you can wear them in the snow and slosh that comes afterwards. Also the boots are good for those icy days.

I thought I had found a great pairing of comfort, style, and warmth. Alas! The back lacing actually has a typical tongue under the laces. I could feel cold air coming in at my heel as I walked inside. I give these a vote of no confidence for deep snow and real cold.

These boots are wonderful! Very comfortable and warm, and very much waterproof. I've spent hours playing in the snow with the kids and my feet stayed dry and warm. As a big plus, they look really cute. I am very happy with this purchase.

These boots are great! Here in Chicago, I need a pair of boots that will stand up to the winter weather. They are waterproof, no leakage whatsoever (I even stepped in a huge puddle to test it out) and they are warm. I also think they're pretty cute for a hardy, winter boot.

Just got these boots and really love the style - waterproof and sturdy which is great for snow and winter weather, but clean edges and stylish enough to wear without the snow. I would have gone a half of a size down, but they are all out - nothing thicker socks can't fix. I also may add arch support/ inserts since they are pretty flat in the inside. The inside is not fuzzy like an Ugg boot so it likely will not stretch.

I bought these boots for walking to/from work in winter (in Wisconsin). They are extremely comfortable for walking long distances, and have kept my feet warm in single digit weather. They have excellent support and keep you upright whether you are walking on dry pavement, slushy snow or ice. I typically wear a size 9 or 9½ depending on the shoes. I bought both sizes, and the 9 fits perfectly, even with two pairs of socks. The 9½ was too large. If you purchase these, definitely unzip the side when you take them on/off so you do not have to tie/untie the laces each time.

Super comfortable to walk in. They have kept my feet and calves very warm even during the 30 degree weather we are already experiencing in Chicago! Highly recommend this boot - well worth the cost.

These boots are awesome! I was looking for something comfortable, stylish and warm and these boots fit the bill. I can wear these all day with ease. I am 5'1 and a size 5 and these boots are the perfect height on my petite legs. The cut is very flattering and my husband even thinks they're sexy. I bought these in brown and the color is much darker and richer than in the picture- almost like dark chocolate brown. They are cute with skinny jeans or leggings/tights and a dress. No trouble with the tongue as others have commented.

These boots are awesome. They look good, feel good and are warm. I usually wear a 9 shoe, 8.5 boot and I have wider feet. I ordered these in a 9 and they fit perfect. I wore them to a professional football game it was 40 and raining. I had them on all day on concrete and my feet were comfy, warm and dry. Easily tucked in base layer and tapered leg jeans. Love them.

Love my shoes! Can hardly wait for some cold weather to wear them! I live is California and there isn't too many boot days in the area I live in! I don't know if these would be warm enough in real cold weather! The fit is pretty true to size. These are a size 9. I also ordered a 9-1/2 but were too big. The calf is a little loose. That surprised me as I run and have a pretty good size muscle in my calf, but I think once I tuck in a pair of blue jeans they will be perfect! The color makes them look very casual! (My lifestyle) By the way, I ordered them on Sunday and received them on Tuesday! Pretty darn fast if you ask me! By the way, if you do have a large calf it can be adjusted some with loosening the back via the shoestring. In my case I have them as tight as I could pull the shoe strings!

Very comfortable. I wore these for a week straight on my trip to South Lake Tahoe (in January). I leather is of good quality and therefore a bit stiff, specifically around the ankle. I know as the leather wears in it'll be more flexible. Based on the other reviews I purchased a half size larger, I think my regular size would have been fine but I decided to keep the larger size so I can wear thick socks and add a gel insert if I desire. I wish these had better arch support but then again I do have very high arches. I wore these boots snow shoeing and they kept my feet dry and warm. I do plan to seal the leather for longevity purposes.

I love these boots! I can wear them in the slushy snow and rain over leggings, or under jeans. They look great after walking through all that mess too! I did have to size down about 1/2 size.

Ladies with a little wider calf (size-wise), these are the winter boots for you! I am between a 16.5-16.75 and thankfully for the laces in the back of the boots these were perfect. I got the black pair and am overall pleased. Good: 1. The fur doesn't fly off or rip out-these are my second pair of faux fur winter books and compared to my other pair I don't have little fur fuzzies all over my house) 2. They are so comfy right out of the box 3. they have a nice little grippy bottom - no wiping out for me! and I unfortunately am the wipeout queen. 4. The leather is soft and buttery 5. The insides are warm and toasty. Bad: 1. They don't look as slimming as in the picture they have a little frump at the ankles. The girl with huge calves has super small ankles (I have the laces pulled as tight as humanly possible in the back). 2. The black while it has super nice quality leather looks a little faded black. 3. It's not bad as much as I wish they were a little taller. Watch outs: Yes, you heard me Watch outs - not bad but things you should be made aware of. 1. The tongue in the back where the laces are is not one piece it looks more like the tongue of your running show where it is flippy. 2. The boots zipper will allow you to take the boots on and off without unlacing every single time. Thank goodness because this girl has places to go and people to see and no time to be lacing and unlacing! 3. Get your true size. I wish I would have gotten the 6.5 but alas they didn't have it! and no 7's either so I took the 7.5...I know but I went with the Steel Magnolias thought process..."In a good shoe I wear a size 6 but a 7 feels so good I buy a size 8". I'll just need to wear some heavier socks. 4. The fur does not go all the way to the bottom it is just on the little top part and doesn't go down the entire shaft of the boot. Good luck and I hope you like the boots as much as I do...bring on the cold!

I searched for months to find a replacement for my beloved 3-year old shearling boots. These were in my price range. I do not love them as much as my old boots, that are Born brand. These boots are cute, true to size. I have a slightly narrow foot and heel. These boots are not snug around my foot, but with the half zipper opening, they don't slip on my heels. I was disappointed that the 'shearling' is so thin and is only on the top 2" of the boot shaft. So the boots are not fuzzy in the foot and not as warm as I had hoped. Overall, they are not exactly what I was hoping for, but I didn't have tons of money to spend. I've gotten a few compliments on the style.

Love these boots, they are true to size and fit larger calfs because of the lase. They do claim to be waterproof and they are as long as water, snow, etc does not get through the lace in the back. If it does, your feet are wet.

Through trial and error I finally found these boots as a comparable replacement for a worn out pair of Merrell boots that I loved. So far they have been great at fulfilling their purpose - they are warm, comfortable, and waterproof (and cute! I've gotten lots of compliments). Some other reviewers mentioned that their boots are not waterproof as they are supposed to be, but so far I have not had a problem with that (and I have walked through snow and slush in them). The one downside to these boots is that they are fairly difficult to lace up. I was used to my old boots that had a couple of toggles on the sides and took all of 30 seconds to put on. These boots, however, are much more time consuming to put on, especially if you don't have something to prop your foot up on in order to better see the lace in the back. The other downside is that they don't offer much arch support, but that seems to be standard in boots that I've tried. Aside from the lack of arch support, they are otherwise very comfortable.
