These boots are cute but a bit narrow in the shape of the leather so I'm returning a 6.5 for 7.5. The footbed seems true to size once i get my foot in there but it's just hard to get squeeze my foot in the boot. I've seen this shoe on several other websites and they all list the heel as being different heights. The shortest inner edge of the heel is only 2 inches but the longest outer edge is 3.25...not a low heel in my book but not too high either.

7 are "Critical"

These boots are very cute, but they have an odd design flaw that makes them difficult to wear. The toe section, or toe box, curves slightly outward, rather than inward, and it places pressure on the main joint of your big toe (where a bunion would be). I have never seen anything like it. Its outward curve is pronounce enough that I actually thought I was putting the boot on the wrong foot at first. Very strange. It also makes the shoe difficult to put on and uncomfortable to wear. You can kind of see the outward curve in the overhead photo of the shoe. I'm surprised other reviewers haven't mentioned this, but every foot is different and perhaps it will not bother every wearer. I would suggest ordering them and trying them out on carpet to see if they will work for you. If they do, great. If not, take advantage of Zappos' free returns. The boots run true to size. If you plan on wearing these with thin socks or tights, order your true size. If you plan to wear these with thick socks in the winter, or you fall in between sizes, I would recommend half a size larger.

The smog color is a beautiful vintage-looking brown. As other reviewers mentioned, the toe box runs narrow. Length runs true to size. Great bootie for ladies with narrow feet and calves.

These are wonderful boots if you have a narrow foot, particularly if you have a long narrow foot like me. I can rarely find ankle boots that don't look huge especially around the ankle because I'm a size 9 1/2. These are great to throw on with jeans or leggings. They are much more comfortable than I expected. I rarely wear heals now that I'm a mother of 2 but I can run around all day in these. I tried a bunch of boot before settling on these and I am super happy!

Amazing! Firstly, I was thrilled they run true to size. I wear 8.5 in most shoes and boots and they couldn't be more perfect fitting. Second, I have never found a more comfortable shoe/boot with a heel! These are just perfection and super cool looking. I'll wear them with everything.

The boots look great with skinny jeans/pants and also underneath a wider leg pant (but not too wide). Very comfortable and stylish. I love Dolce Vita boots! Need to wear o 1-2 times before they form to your foot.

I love these booties. The sole and heel are shaped nicely so that you can wear these all day, and have the added height. They are versatile and very comfortable. I have worn them like crazy with zero blisters or break-in period. Thank you, DV, and Zappos! I wish these came in black - if they did, I would buy them also.

LOVE these booties. As with some other reviewers, I have tiny ankles and large calves which means I have trouble finding booties that don't make me look weird. These did the trick. I got the waxed suede ones because it rains a lot in Georgia in the winter and most of my suede shoes get very lonely in the closet waiting for a sunny day. Love the ombre toe as well. Looks great with dressy and casual clothes. Highly recommend these!

I rarely wear heels this high and still found the boot to be very comfortable. I often have the problem of shoes rubbing where a bunion would be, but I've worn them a few times now and have no complaints. I have skinny ankles and like that they're narrow and high enough on the ankle that you can't see my socks when I'm wearing leggings or skinny jeans. Overall very satisfied. I'm a true 7.5 and that size fit.

These boots are exactly what I'd been searching obsessively for all fall. I liked the bootie look, but with slim ankles and calves, I feel most booties look awkward, like I'm standing in two pails or buckets. Not exactly a stylish look for a grown woman. My style is pretty bifurcated: think Jackie O with a funky twist at work, and elegant hippie at play. These boots work for casual days at work or any time for play. These are slim in profile, elegant and chic yet kind of funky in the black suede and a little more bohemian rustic in the smog leather. To me, the smog color is slightly lighter than I thought it would be, but with some wear, I think it will soon be perfect too. I loved the first pair so much, I got another pair in a different color. Now debating a third pair in brown. Comfort: with a foot pad this boot would be a solid perfect 5. As delivered, the only thing I could see being an issue is a lack of cushion for long walking-intensive days, like in SF or NY. Wore all day in the office and they were super comfy. Size wise, I find boots boots are always 1/2 size bigger than my pumps, and half a size smaller was perfect. My foot isn't that narrow anymore, and I found the width to be perfect. Buy 'em, you'll love 'em.

These shoes are cute and comfortable-- I got the black and they are versatile. The stacked heel is very nice; I hardly feel that I am wearing a high heel. I have many pairs of DV shoes but these ones are particularly fabulous. One kind of tricky thing with their shoes though is the sizing- I am never consistent. For these I went up a 1/2 size.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these boots. Going for my second pair now. Trying to decide on a color. I have the Smog. It's not as brown as the picture. More of a taupe. They fit great. No issues like some of the other reviews. I am a size 9 and these fit great. My first time to wear them was when I was traveling. Lots of airport walking and still felt great.

These are my favorite shoes this season. I can easily wear them all day without them hurting at all. They also go with dresses, skirts, and pants so they're super versatile. I would definitely recommend these shoes to anyone who is thinking about getting them!

These shoes for me are very comfortable. They have become my everyday shoes. I brought the brown pair to San Francisco with no other shoes. I was thinking that I would probably have to buy another pair because my feet would eventually hurt and they did not! I was able to walk around the neighborhoods no problem. I was so impressed that I bought the black pair as soon as I got home. I recently took my kids trick or treating wearing these shoes, too. They are good shoes that provide great comfort. I am actually wearing them now.

This is a dynamite shoe. I have been on the fence about buying a bootie and I'm glad I made this choice. The black suede is fantastic and goes with everything. Heel is a moderate height but gives you enough lift without being uncomfortable. The front sole is very flexible and easy to walk in. I got them a week ago and have been living in them every day since. To work, to the gym, then out and then home. Very comfortable. Only issue was the first few days, the front of the shoe dug into the front of my ankle a bit. I would unzip the zipper half way to alleviate the pressure mark, but a week later, the material has given and stretched a little. Even got the smog color. Worth it if you're on the fence. And PS, saw two people in my building with the boot the same week I bought it. Go figure.

They're pretty comfortable to walk around in unless you try to flex your foot in any way. I wore them for the first time today and things like driving, taking stairs and bending down (in my case to fill my car tires) and the top of the boot dug pretty hard into the front of my leg/top of my foot. I'm hoping it'll get better as they break in a little. Otherwise, they look great!
