I loved these boots! Very stylish that they look good with jeans tucked in or even a skirt. I have received many compliments & they are truly comfortable. I was a little worried with no side zipper that my calf would not fit with pants tucked but they are great with or without.

I was looking for a pair of flat black boots and came across these and loved them instantly. Guys just be aware they run large. I purchased a size 8 1/2 and had to send them back for a size 8. I love the look it's like a treated rustic suede..

I bought these boots about three weeks ago and they have been the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. The coloring definitely varies intentionally throughout the suede which gives them a decidedly vintage feel. They were a little narrow in the foot at first, but have stretched and are now perfect. I can wear them all day with no problems. There is a lot of calf room. I highly recommend these boots!

Love the look and feel of these boots, however, buyer beware the chart of the boot is WIDE, when you pull your boot cut jeans over the boot you can see the shaft sticking out through the material, I was disappointed in this, best to wear jeans tucked inside the boot.

I really love the look of these boots! However, I ordered my true size in an 8.5 and they feel like a 9.5! They are very wide as well! Zappos was great to ship overnight as I was leaving for Spain the next day. I received them, packed and was on my way! I usually have good luck with boots but not this time! I put them on for work and was stuck with them. I still wear then but my feet slide and they feel sloppy! Their is a reinforced internal toe and that area, which is stiff, has a noticeable protrusion through the suede which is much softer. I hope they look better than they look & feel to me! I love the look! Oh well, lesson learned!

Perfect style and very good price, look more expensive, the only negative thing is the boot opening is a little bit smaller for my calves, the boots are perfect every where else in fact they are wider and bigger, just be careful of the measurements before you buy them.

I love the color and the material. However, the boots do slouch quite a bit so if you're looking for a boot like the one in the picture, I would choose something else with a stiffer leather. Also, DO NOT pull the boots up by the straps at the top. They are for show only...I found this out the hard way when I ripped the strap the second time I wore them.

Man oh man, I saw these boots on my girlfriend and fell in love! Ordered them next day. I usually wear a 9.5 and so I ordered them in brown in a 9.5. Got them, tried them on and realized I hated the color - not Zappos or DV's fault, I just normally fall into the black, grey, tan color trap! The one thing that bothered me was that they were too big! I'm always a 9.5 so I couldn't believe it. The width was also wider than I like, I have chicken ankles but these were pretty wide. I returned them and exchanged them for a size 9 in black (because I really wanted these boots to work) but of course the 9 was way too small! Bummer! Sent them back and invested in some Frye boots instead! Overall - pretty shoe, just not for me.

First off, gorgeous boots! I saw them in person and instantly fell in love! I read the first review about the boots being tight around the shaft opening, but chose to get them anyways. They were right, it is very snug if you have runner's calves (I purchased a size 6.5 and have a smaller body frame). Also, the ankle/foot sizing was rather wide. I felt as if my feet were sliding around and that I could have gone a half size smaller. Unfortunately, as I was putting on the boots a strap broke so I am returning for another pair. Still hopeful because I just love these boots, so if they catch your eye like they did mine...go for it.

I loved the look of these boots, but I purchased a size 8 in black and the boot opening is definitely NOT a 16. It was a 15 when I measured. That inch made all the difference. If you have smaller calves these would be very cute.

I tried these on in person, and was so disappointed, I thought I would write a review to help people who are considering this shoe. When I first saw this online, I was really attracted to the way it looked. When I felt it in person, the leather on the black shoe was really waxy and gooey. If you were to rub it, black goo would be left behind on your fingers. The brown color wasn't as bad. I am 5'8, and have pretty slim legs, and these boots were very unflattering. They were super wide from the ankle all the way to the top. Most boots are better fitted. I would definably try to find a store near you that carries this boot before you buy so you can try it on, because I would have been very sad if I spent money on shoes that were awkward in person.

This was the worst product I ever purchased - putting them on is virtually a taxing war between a collapsing heel support and pull-up side tabs so cheaply sewn that they ripped up after a normal tug. They have a great aesthetic, but are completely non-functional, uncomfortable and cheaply put together. Complete disappointment. Spend the extra money for winter and fashion - it will be worth the headache and frustration. Poor construction makes for an ill-fitting waste of time.

Brands I'd also recommend: Stick with Uggs, Frye, or Ralph Lauren-NEVER buy this product
