I love these boots. I'm 5'8" so I like to wear flat boots and these are awesome. They hit over the knee, but can also be folded down if you want. Because of the awesome price point, I got them in brown and black!

I bought these for work and they are so comfortable, as I am on my feet all day. The boot is rather thin and flimsy, but they serve their purpose. I've have gotten compliments on them. This is my first Chinese Laundry purchase.

The boots are really nice and I would have followed the previous reviews but they did not have a half size up at the time (a 9) so I ordered my real size (an 8 1/2) and the boots are just a little to small. They feel fine when you are sitting but when you are walking it is tight and I walk a great deal most days so I can't get away with a shoe that is just a little too tight. All in all order a half size up.

I love this boots! I have skinny legs so all other over the knee boots always look funny on me - too loose, too wide. I always wanted a pair but could never find one that fits me the way I wanted. This pair is perfect, fits me well, very comfortable and they don't look cheap! Reviews suggested to get a bigger size but I still tried to order my size 7.5 and to me they are true to size. Maybe if your feet are on the wider side then you need a bigger size to have more room! Overall I'm very happy and would order more colors!

I have worn these twice and I love them. They are so comfortable and they don't fall down. I want a pair in another color.

I like them a lot! For the price they are very high quality and are holding up well. My only complaint is that they don't stand up on their own, the leather is too soft and the fit too loose. I would prefer a construction that could stand up on its own because I prefer that look, butI still wore them all winter and loved them...

Nice boots! There's a little extra room just in case thick socks need to be worn. I'm 4'11 and the boots come just above my knees. They're pretty comfortable and stylish. The one thing I hated was that the front of the boots were scratched really easily.

I am on my second pair of these. They are staple in my closet and have been for years. I have really wide calves and I wear them with jeans, leggings and skirts with tights. They only last a season or two, but totally worth it. Any Chinese Laundry Boot with the stretch panel in the back will be good for a large calf. I am also tall and I like the height on these. There isn't any arch support but if you order them a little bigger wearing a bigger sock or putting sports in is easy. It's not a snow boot, but good in cold weather. Can't say enough about this brand for a fun boot.

I LOVE these boots. the only problem I have is with the width in the calf. I am about 5'10 and wear a 6 pants (for an idea on my size). I had to safety pin the back part to make them work. There is a 2" section of elastic on the back side, I suppose for extra width-so you can make them smaller if that was gone, or taken in. Other than that- they are great. Love the quality and look!

I Love my boots, and they are very comfortable. The only issue I find is that I have to keep pulling the left boot up because it slouches a lot more than the right, other than that I am very pleased and I get many complements. I loved the free shipping and I received them a lot sooner than expected.

I love these boots. Even for a 5'1" girl these are perfect over the knee boots. They were a little big in the ankles so I am returning for a smaller size.

The leather on these boots is thin, but since I am planning on wearing them as dress boots only, that is not a problem. Having read the reviews, I ordered 1/2 size up and that solved the problem. I think the boots are attractive, but not for everyday wear.

Love these boots bought in both colors! but they run VERY small and usually wear a 7.5 but needed an 8.5, so it was a bit of a hassle to finally find a size that fit... at least Zappos made the return/reorder process incredibly easy!

Overall, I like these boots. The price is reasonable. I found a coupon so I paid a little less for them. I love how the boots cover my knees. My only complaint is that they are a little big on my calves and ankles which makes it look a little funny. They are also slippery. I almost fell wearing these boots for the first time. The bottom do not have much support.

Such a cute boot. Fit true to size for me. I'm 5'8 and the shaft of the boot was the perfect height; covering the entirety of my knee.

Love the look of the boot. The one thing is around the calf it was very tight. If you wear a 9, get a 10.

These are super cute, great color and the leather is a great quality. They do run small, I always wear a 9 and I need to exchange these for a 9.5...hopefully the fit is better.

When these boots arrived, I really liked them and thought for the cost, I couldn't go wrong. After wearing them a few times, I decided I didn't like them quite as much since I felt like they were slouching down quite a bit. Now when I wear them I feel like I'm always pulling them up. I do have kind of small calves so that may be part of the problem. I still wear them, but if I had to do it over again, I would probably try to find a pair that wasn't quite so slouchy looking. If you like the slouchy look, then they're perfect, but that wasn't what I thought they were when I bought them. I must say that I feel they are pretty comfortable, though. I'm on my feet a lot and I could definitely handle a full day in these.

Bought these on sale on this website. I was excited it was leather, on sale, and stylish. Then after they came in the mail almost seemed like overnight I was excited too. I bought a size bigger just to be on the safe side because to me they are considered dress shoes. They fit well a little on the wide side (I have wide feet) but I figure, hey, I'll wear thick socks any way during the cold. Then after a while I noticed they started talking in the front. (What No!) I liked these shoes and they can go with any outfit. I was upset guess I have to take them to the man that fixes shoes to add a piece so it does not detach completely. I was very disappointed. I expected more from Chinese Laundry boots.

These seem only so-so for the price. Thin sole that I would have to put an insole in and though I have muscular calves these slid right on. So plenty roomy. I ordered a size up as the reviews suggested and found that these were then too large. Perhaps just a 1/2 size up would be better.

I have been looking for this style for a while so when I saw these I jumped at the chance to order. They do look exactly like the picture, style, color, etc. However, I find them to be cheap looking in person. They are comfortable and fit true to size but my feet get very cold in them during this winter weather. I would recommend ordering half a size up and wearing a thick sock to keep warm. Overall, I am not impressed with this shoe.

I'm not happy with these at all. I was really excited to buy them but when I wear them they slide down into slouchy boots. I want them to stay over my knee. If you have a wide calf and have trouble fitting into other boots, then these would be good for you. I wish that I could return them.

I loved these, but they just didn't fit over my calves. There is stitching through the elastic in the back. My calves aren't wide but they aren't sticks either. Shame because they are very cute!
