Very comfortable. I wear arch supports in most shoes, but they are not necessary with these because they are designed to support the natural curve of the arch. I dress them up with khakis and dress them down with jeans. I have the dark brown ones and I am thinking about getting another pair soon. I read the reviews and took the advice to buy a half size smaller. Good advice.

These boots look great and feel great. I get lots of compliments on them before people realize it's a boot. When they see it's a boot people really dig them. I do too.

Great shoes, very comfortable. Quality craftsmanship throughout. I wear a 12 1/2 so I debated over a 12 or 13. I ordered a 12 the first time and they are still a little big, but some odor eaters solved that. I believe they run about 1/2 to 3/4 on the big side.

I love the feel of these. I was looking for a dull black chukka style boot and these are exactly what I needed. They fit great and are comfortable.

These are a great pair of boots, both stylish and comfortable and look great with jeans. I know they are not described as being waterproof, however, I have worn them in the rain and they held up well. I would definitely recommend them.

Ordered Sunday night, received Tuesday morning, super fast shipping! This pair of boots is quite nice. The color is a bit darker than I expected from the picture but that's alright. They are very comfortable and soft. For sizing, I had to go a size down from what I usually wear with some room to spare, I have narrower feet so that is probably why. Overall very nice shoes

Very comfortable. I have problems with my arches and these have noticeably great support. Other Timberland shoes I wear also have great support. That comfort is worth the price.

I've only had these shoes a few weeks, but they're very comfortable. I'm breaking them in for a trip to Vancouver, where I know I'll be doing a lot of walking, but the medium weight makes them ideal for a San Diego winter (yes, there is such a thing). I bought my first pair before reading all the reviews, and it's true, they run about half a size large. Of course, Zappos quickly exchanged them, without hassle. I would recommend these shoes for style and comfort.

I can't find a way to update my previous review so I'll write another. I returned the first pair - felt too big. The next smaller size was out of stock but I asked Zappos to notify me when they had stock - 2 days later I was able to reorder. :) Very comfortable, stylish shoes. A shoe 1/2 size smaller than I normally wear fits perfect.

These shoes make me a better man! I never thought that I would say that about shoes. They feature supple and moist leather with nice (I am guess anti-microbial) lining, super cushy sole with arch support bump in front of heel, and flat out stylish. These will elevate you to a new standard in style. They are comfortable right out of the box. They are highly recommended. They are not available in wide sizes Keep in mind that these run narrow. I have medium width feet and they were tight to get on. However, the softness of the leather makes them comfortable regardless (and I know they will stretch). They fit like a glove really. All this to say, if you have particularly wide (or tall) feet, they may not work for you, but it is worth trying. You can always return them.

I just bought these at a store yesterday and I love them! Stylish, feels solid, and comfortable! No complaints. They do run larger than usual size. I am 10, but I got a 9.5.

Great shoes. Rugged and a bit dressy. Great shoes for one of those sloppy days in the city when you don't really want to wear boots and dress shoes are definitely out. Typical Timberland quality. The fit was great and they were comfortable from the time I put them on, no need to "break them in" This is a somewhat prejudiced review because I have been a Timberland fan for many years.

First off, I would like to address the reviewer that had a problem with these being a 'lite' version of Tims chukkas. They are not. They are a completely different style of chukka than the Timberland premium. They are not sacrificing the craft of the boot to make the price better, and in fact I find these to be a very stylish casual boot while the premiums are much more of a working boot. If you want a work boot, get the premiums. If you want a stylish city boot, get the lite. Having said that, these boots are phenomenal. There is very little break in time and they are very comfortable. I usually wear chelsea's, but I decided to give chukkas a shot since they seem so popular and I couldn't be happier. My only complaint is how large these boots run. I normally wear a 10-10.5 shoe and 9.5 boot. I ordered both a 9.5 and a 9 in anticipation of them running large and both were much too big. I returned them and got an 8.5 with no problems and they fit perfectly.

I purchased the Timberland Earthkeepers City Lite Chukka, in black, size 10, for my 43 year old fiance. He loves these shoes! It only took him two days of wearing them around the house, a bit, to break them in, before he started to wear them everywhere, with absolutely no problems. He finds them to be both stylish and very comfortable! He wears a size 10 in most brands, so I ordered these in a size 10, and he says that they fit him perfectly (true to size). My fianc 's usual attire is a long sleeve flannel, unbuttoned, worn over a t-shirt, with a pair of jeans. These chukka's look really great with his casual attire. Personally, I believe these shoes would also look fantastic worn with a suit. Might give the suit a bit more of an "edgy" look. Oftentimes, stylish appearing shoes aren't comfortable (you have to give up comfort for style), so I'm very pleased that my fiance finds these shoes to be so comfortable! And as usual, Zappos is awesome! I ordered these shoes around 5pm and they arrived the next day (free shipping).

Lightly constructed but seem durable so far. Quite comfortable and because of the lighter weight leather, are lighter on the feet and breathe a bit better than other chukkas I've owned. Would buy them again without reservation.

I read reviews from other sites indicating that these boots are a good whole size larger than average - I would agree totally with that. 90 percent of the time I fit into a 9M, and the 8M in these boots fit well, with the appropriate wiggle room. I have a pair of Timb shoes from about six years ago that are also a little over a half size too big. However they are great boots, well made for Zappos' price, and will serve me well this winter.

I read the reviews and took a full size smaller (14, not 15). That was a good idea. I have got a pair of black - they mark black at the ankles. Do not wear with white socks.

Good looking shoes. The soles, which are rubber,are very comfortable. But not so comfortable around the ankles. Maybe still needs to be broken in more.

A cool matte finish and very comfortable. They are great for this time of year; especially if you live in a climate like the northeast. They are also good looking and I've received compliments for the younger crowd. My pair ran about a half of size too big.

Nice shoes. A little narrow in my opinion. It took four or five days of constant wearing to break them in. Women love them, though.

Great all purpose shoe. A bit heavier than I expected. Seems durable but the tongue of the shoe is so stiff! Very uncomfortable to me...front of upper ankle was sore by end of the day.
