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.

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.

Love these boots! I got them in olive which looks great with everything I wear. They are comfortable and the heel size is perfect for day and night. I get so many compliments when I wear these boots.

After trying on heaps of booties, these were the perfect find. Comfortable without being bulky, supportive, solid construction, nice leather. On the first time out, I walked in them all day without any problems... I have sensitive feet so this is rare for me. Love!

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 really like the way these look, but I can't wear them every day because the heel is just a bit higher than I'm used to. It's a narrow fit, which I like; my foot stays nicely in place. My one complaint is that the top of the boot sort of cuts into my shin when I take a step forward, so it's not as comfortable as it should be.

These were so uncomfortable, there was no way I was going to keep them. They're cute but unwearable for me. There were pressure points in the toe, and the whole shoe was too stiff. I have normal feet, too.

from Brooklyn, NY

I find these shoes insanely comfortable. I have narrow feet and ankles and they fit snugly, but just right. I can see them being uncomfortable for those with wider feet or ankles. I also noticed what others have said about the curve of the interior toe portion of the shoe - it does appear to curve outward somewhat. However, because of the shape of my foot, this ends up providing excellent support, with no uncomfortable rubbing on the ball of the foot or the big toe. The stacked heel is also great for running around the city. I'm giving four stars because they are somewhat cheaply made - there was a bit of glue showing between one of the boots and the wooden heel on the pair I received. But it's still a great deal for the price and the comfort they provide. I got the Black suede and I'll probably get the Smog leather style soon.

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 are such good looking shoes. But I ordered them because I was looking for a good looking BROWN shoe. The "smog" color looks brown in the photo!!! Beware, it is actually truer to it's name; it is grey. Bummer. Had to return.

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.

Brands I'd also recommend: Nine West, Jeffrey Campbell, Frye, Dan Post

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.

I have ordered this shoe twice. Both in hope that it would look like the picture and video on your site. This shoe is not as brown in person as it looks pictured. It's more Blonde. Which I didn't want. Sadly, I am returning them again.

Very cute on, but but very narrow. I normally wear a 7, and ordered a 7.5 because of other reviews. The 7.5 was still very small and I had a hard time slipping my foot into the boot, even with the zipper wide open! I will be returning them.

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.

The sizing was really terrible. The width was way too narrow and the length seemed to be too long. I am returning.

I love these shoes, but they did get a slight rip in the left front seam after only a few wears. Zappos sent me a new pair, and the same thing happened. I opted to keep them though, because they are really super cute and easy to wear through the day.

I was a little leery of the heel height before I got these but based on other reviews thought I would give them a try. The style is cute, and the boots are relatively comfy for a short time but I wore them an entire day & walked a lot. The zippers are on the outside but look a little edgy. Overall, a cute style but if I hadn't worn them outside and could return them, I would.

I love the way these boots look and I usually buy DV shoes but these unfortunately were a bad design...maybe for someone for super narrow feet would be great but my average size feet did not feel comfortable at all. I usually wear 7.5 from DV shoes as they usually run a little small. These fit me as far as size but the shoe itself was too narrow and too tight.

I ordered these in the smog color because the picture makes it look like a brown leather. The boots are actually more of a nude color and a suede finish. They look very different from the picture. In the picture of the smog color there's a sheen to the boots, so that's why I assumed they were leather instead of suede. That being said, these boots feel comfortable so far. I'm debating keeping them because while they're cute, they aren't what I was expecting, and for the price, I think I might want to buy something more in line with what I thought these boots were.
