Not sure about this boot yet. Stylish and comfortable. The only "problem" is the ankle is wide and roomy. Great for tights and jeggings to tuck into the boot. Works fine with boot cut jeans. Doesn't work so well with skinny jeans. If you're not tucking your jeans into the boots, the jeans look a little odd over the boot at the ankle. I prefer a slimmer/tighter boot at the ankle.

Horrible experience with these shoes. They look fantastic and I thought I was buying a quality pair. The fit was ok and comfortable for the most part. Then within 2 weeks the paint and finish on the Espresso color had lifted off spontaneously revealing off white natural leather under. I was shocked when I caught a glimpse of myself head on shopping for shoes at Nordstrom this Saturday. I had seen the shoes looking increasingly scuffed over just 2 weeks, which was frustrating, but if it hadn't been for that day & being out shoe shopping at the mall I may not have noticed that the front of my left boot was almost white!! I am taking pictures of these shoes to post on my blog. I live in Seattle where it doesn't snow and it hasn't rained very heavily, I drive in my car with minimal walking (or if I am walking or at the gym I wear my Bensimons or sneakers) so there is no excuse for this happening. Zappos customer service was kind of a nightmare calling this wear & tear (in 2 weeks?) and asking me to contact the manufacturer but after a battle they apparently issued refund so ok (waiting for it to show on my credit card). I will never buy another pair of Sam Edelman shoes again, nor recommend this to anyone.

Very comfortable boot. Just what I was looking for low heels, soles that are not slick, and looks very nice on foot.

I am a bootie newbie and I've really liked this purchase. This is a great bootie and very comfortable. I mostly wear it with skinny jeans and leggings but I've also worn it under dress pants and they look like regular boots. I can wear a size 4 in women's pumps and I can get by in size 5 for boots since I can wear socks. I ordered a size 5 in these and they fit nicely with a pair of ankle socks.

Fantastic. These are great looking and extremely comfortable. I previously bought these in burgundy and just bought the black. I can wear these all day with no problem. Highly recommend them.

I have two pairs of this in Saddle. I love them. I feel stylish (and think I look it?) when I wear these boots. Price point is great. I am going to get Black, and I plan on getting the Petty from Sam Edelman, too. I have serious problems with my feet (bunions, argh!) so I cannot wear these every day (because they don't sell this in wide). So I wear them every other day.

I purchased both the Sam Edelman boots in saddle and black. They are fashionable and comfortable. They are great with pants and the ankle circumstance works well for wearing tights with a skirt or dress. They are sold at a great price and feature great workmanship. If there were other colors I would have them too.

This is my 3rd pair of Sam Edelman boots. They really know how to design a boot with great style and comfort. I always go a half size up because I want to be able to enjoy all day comfort and socks are always a factor in wearing boots. Heel height is just perfect! Not too high but very flattering. Great with leggings or jeans. I'll be watching for their next great design!

These are beautiful boots. I was looking for nice brown ankle boots and have tried a few to no avail. They have to be comfortable and these definitely were from the very start. They took very little time to break in and they look fantastic with skinny jeans or leggings. This is my second pair of Sam Edelmans and it will not be the last!

Initially not comfortable and thought I would return. Wore them out one day and they easily became more comfortable. I had bought two pair and these have become my favorites. Received many complements as well.

Sam Edelman's Maddox is my go-to boot! They are true-to-size, comfortable, stylish, and the 2-1/2" heel is a perfect height. The non-skid bottoms are great when there's any type of slippery walking surface, whether it's water, snow, ice, or just climbing steep steps. I have the Maddox in four colors and get compliments whenever I wear them which is quite often. Highly recommend these booties!

These are cute boots. The leather is quite nice. The heel is a bit lower than I expected. Everybody said in reviews that they fit true to size but I find they ran a bit small. Overall, I'm happy with these boots. I'd buy again but, personally, I'd go up a half size.

Great overall bootie! Easy to dress up for the office but can wear casually with jeans and looks cute. Perfect heel height for me as I am not a fan of wearing heels. These boots were comfortable straight out of the box. Highly recommend these for anyone needing a well constructed, fashionable bootie that won't go out of style.

LOVE! So cute and flattering. The color is a great neutral and will be an awesome addition to my wardrobe. I read somewhere else to size down 1/2 and they fit perfect.

There is a little bit of ankle room but I think will be fine with cuffed jeans. I love the neutral color. I ordered a 6 and has just a little bit of room in them, not enough to need to go down a half size though. They will be fine with thin socks.

This is a good looking and very comfortable boot. I especially like the smoothness of the heel and the color is fabulous. Looks great with jeans, slacks, and leggings.

Kudos to the VIP's! Don't you love our shipping. S.E. are the best shoes/boots, have quite a few pairs and they run true to size to the "T". These are so comfortable, wore for a wedding and 5 hours later I had just realized that my feet never were uncomfortable.

These shoes are amazing. They are comfortable enough for me to wear all day and walk around in. I also love the style. I had been looking for a pair of black booties for a while, and these are perfect.

Love! These booties...very comfortable, love the style...have had many compliments on them. Wish I had bought them in black also, but when I went back to buy them they didn't have my size. Zappos always gives me great service and everything I have bought from them have been of excellent quality. Will continue to buy from them.

These are GREAT booties. I get lots of compliments every time I wear them. They fit a little loose, not enough to order a smaller size, but enough that I wear shortie socks with them.

Love this shoe. It is comfortable, the circumference around my skinny ankle is the smallest of all the booties I tried and the color is great (Chateau Grey) It is good with greys and blacks as well as browns so it is very versatile. And for the price I would highly recommend.

Love these booties! They are a really comfortable heel height. I did have to stretch the toe box out a bit. But once that was done, they've been my favorite go to shoe.

This is a truly beautiful shoe. I just received it today and the fit is very comfortable so far. The sole has a unique rubbery texture which gives it great grip and a quiet stride. I have never ordered Sam Edelman shoes before but I think I might end up becoming a big fan.

Comfortable, nice stability on sole. Roomy toe area. There is no red or burgundy to this shoe it is a rich brown, I was looking for a red toned shoe. Also, for those with larger ankles, plenty of room to zip all the way up! I will keep for that reason alone even though they aren't red/burgundy in color.
