Just got the black ones and I love them! I wear an 8 or 8.5-- I got the 8 and it's perfect. Love the ruggedness and soft quality leather. The aren't super stiff in the shaft which I like and they much more comfy than Fryes. I have scrawny calves and I think the shearling liner helps to grip my legs so the booths aren't flopping around-- yet the opening at the top is definitely not tight. I also ordered the Durango Savannah Engineer and found the Riekers to look more high quality, more rugged, be a little more narrow and has a slightly turned up toe that I prefer. The Durangos have a textured, slightly bumpy upper whereas the Riekers are smooth.

These are not Rieker and do not fit like Rieker. They are made by another company and sold under the Rieker name. The combination of lighter stitching and rubber lug sole made up to look like a leather sole only succeeds in making these boots look cheap. The work is irregular: one boot is okay but the other has some kind of rough spot at the top that rubs against my shin and would snag any hose I wore with it. Except for the shearling upper lining, they look and feel more like boots that cost half the price.

Score! Just what I wanted. These are cool boots with pants or a dress and so comfy right out of the box. I just walked 2 miles in them and it's like a great tennis shoe, soft, flexible leather, nice warm lining. No break in period. Super happy with these. Wanted the Frye Harness at first but these hit all the right notes and saved me money too. I'm a true size 7 and they were perfect.

Beautiful, well-crafted boot. Soft leather, real fleece interior. However, I have very narrow calves (11.5), and small feet (5 to 5.5. I have extreme difficulty finding shoes in my size and so am prepared with an arsenal of inserts and thick socks.They look great with skinny jeans, but I wanted a pair that would also look fun with skirts. However, these boots unfortunately made me look like I was wearing my big brother's biker boots and my legs swam in the size 36. These are perfect for someone who has normal sized feet and calves, and who wants a fun and very casual look. Going to try the Frye Harness Strap 12R next. Thank goodness for Zappos easy return policy!

So cozy with the shearling inside! I really liked the little zipper on the outside that lets you adjust the top opening -- perfect for all size calves (including mine, which are tiny). I do think they run a little large -- normally I'm an 8.5 and I ordered the 8, and they fit perfectly.

Really like the style of the boot. The inside sheer was nice but, they should have brought the sheer all the way to the top. if you the the boot without pants it rubs and does not feel comfortable. Because of that I am returning the boots. True to size.

I love these boots! They are so comfy. The sides are lined with wool and the bottom is nice and cushiony I usually wear between a 7 and 7 1/2 so that's the size I ordered. There's a little extra room for my toes and so the shoe slips just a bit. I solved this by wearing thicker socks and they fit perfect. Definitely recommend!

I really liked these boots, warm, comfortable, go with everything, but they didn't even last the winter, both zippers are breaking and sole has worn away as it is just made of rubber molded to look like something more durable. Too bad.
