These boots were really cute on but they do run 1/2 size large. I ordered the 7 (which I wear) and they were way too big! Order down a half size for sure. Also, the leather is not a soft supple leather like some other boots. The leather is stiffer but not in a cheap way. They stretch and form within a day or so of wearing. I ended up keeping the size 6.5 which felt tight initially but formed to me foot and was quite comfy after a short period wearing them around. These are also really cute with a tiered skirt and cardigan but I like them with skinny jeans best! Oh, one other thing, I get A LOT of compliments on them and people ask me where I got them all the time. They are so unique and stylish. Don't be discouraged by the initial "tightness".

Great service as always from Zappos, however this is the second time I am sending these boots back. :( Same buckle breaks first time you wear them. Super cute, super comfy but definitely an issue with the buckles. So disappointed. Will not try AGAIN with same boot or even Caterpillar brand.

I bought these boots for my daughter, she has wear them three different times, and I just notice today that her straps were loose, as I was about to button them/tighten the straps I realized that the tiny button was gone! It was attached to the boot with a screw the inside part is there, but the top was gone in both boots! I certainly, did not expected this from this boot. They look really good quality and was happy with it otherwise. Now, I feel very upset, for the price paid I was expecting better quality. They are practically new, but they look really bad with the straps unbuttoned. Now, I am just stuck with a pair of boots with loose straps. I do not recommend this product at all. I will try to post some pictures so you can better see what I mean.

These booties are awesome and I can honestly say I received many compliments on them. However, the buckle broke on my 4th outing with them. Returning them for a new pair in the hopes this was just a fluke - they're worth a 2nd chance!

I love these. They are pricey, but I'm keeping them. Seem to be super comfortable. My orthotics fit in them as well. I love the combo of the black with brown heel and strap. The black is more of a gray black. These look cute with rolled jeans, skinny jeans, or with my boot cuts over them.

I love them, but they do run big... I wear a 6 1/2 to a 7...bought a 6 and I can wear a thick sock. They answered my quest for a winter shoe to wear with skinny jeans. Very comfortable too.

These are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn!! After the first wear they are perfectly broken in. Well worth the price. They do run big, I wear a 10, so ordered a 9.5 and I feel like those are a bit big too, but I kept them and love them.

Very cute ankle boots and surprisingly comfortable right out of the box. I didn't need any time to "break them in" and actually wore them to work all day after I got them. Good for people with narrow feet and has moderate all around support.

These are the most expensive shoes I have ever bought, and they are totally worth it! They were comfortable right out of the box. The day I received them I walked around downtown Boston for three hours and my feet were cozy and comfy the whole time. They work with dresses and jeans. I usually wear a 6.5-7 and I got these in a 6.5. I think they might be a little big if I were wearing them barefoot or with just tights, but with socks they are perfect.

Love this boot. I am a casual dresser and this fits the bill. I love it with jeans, leggings, skirts, and dresses. Some reviewers said that the boot is true to size but it is not. I usually wear a 8 to 8 1/2 so I ordered the 8 and had to exchange to a 7 1/2. I have a wide foot but ordered medium and it is not tight.

I love wearing boots but it seems to be difficult to find boots that are comfortable and stylish. These boots are both. They didn't have to be broken in and fell comfortable. The soles are quiet and nonslip. I have received a lot of compliments on them since I purchased them and feel like a bad@$$ when I wear them! :)

I normally wear a 9.5 or 10. I ordered 9.5 and found they were a bit large -- especially in the space for the toes. I could poke the toe area on the boot and it stayed "dented." I ordered a size 9 and kept that size. So I would agree that these boots run 1/2 size larger than normal.

I love this boot. It is exactly what I have been looking for. This fit me perfectly true to size, and is very comfortable. The slouch is just so hip and looks great with skinny jeans. I got the espresso color which is rich and gorgeous. This boot is so well made and will only look better with wear. Great purchase. Love Zappos!

These are super cute little boots. I am glad that I heeded the advice to order down half a size. I typically wear a 6½, and the 6 in these fits perfectly. They also run a little narrow, which I like, having narrow feet myself. I am looking forward to stomping about in them all summer with skirts and pairing them with skinny jeans come fall.

These boots are fabulous. I love them with jeans, shorts and skirts...the funky style compliments anything! I have a very wide foot and was worried about the width, but as usual the shoe stretch product I put on them before wearing for the first time did the trick. Great boot!

I love these boots. They look even better "in person." The size is true, so I'm glad I didn't have to try to anticipate variations in manufacturing. I've been wearing them with jeans and also with leggings and tunics. I intend to continue wearing them all summer...I think they'll look funky with a casual linen dress.

I ordered this size and one a half size smaller because the last pair of Caterpillar boots I bought ran large. I thought these would run large too but they are actually truer to size. I will say that they are a bit narrower feeling across the top of the foot between the ankles but I think that helps to keep my foot from slipping. I have noticed that a lot of low ankle boots are designed like that to help keep the boot on and these are no different. Since they are real leather, I expect them to stretch to my foot. I am keeping these until the other pair I ordered (half size up) comes so that I can compare them. I returned the ones that I ordered that were one half size down. I really love the style and they are really cute in skinny jeans or with a casual dress. The leather is a bit stiff but they are the kind of boots that last forever! I am anxious for the other pair to get to me so I can decide which ones fit best and start wearing them...Hurry, Zappos. Hurry.

This boot is so dang cute! Unfortunately it is also too dang small! I really love the look of this boot. It is super cute with the skinny jeans I tried them on with but they are just a bit too small. I ordered CAT brand boots before and they ran a bit large but these run true to size. Overall, I really love the style. I am returning these for a larger pair! I gave this item 3 stars for comfort because they are too small and therefore not too comfy. When I get the other pair, I'll be able to give it a better rating, I'm sure.

I originally sized down to an 8 after reading reviews, but while the length was ok it was a little too narrow in the toe. If your toes are small (not all long like mine!) you probably will want to go down a half size. My true size is 8.5 but I wear a 9 in some brands, occasionally an 8. I exchanged for the 8.5 and it fits great.

Cute casual boot. But shockingly poor insulation. My feet were freezing when I wore them to an outdoor evening event in October (in Atlanta, so not that cold). Recommend sizing up to add thick socks if you are thinking of wearing these during cold weather months.

This boot is beautiful, especially in the black and brown combination, and is very well made. I ordered a half size smaller and should have ordered my regular size. Had the boot fit properly my comfort rating might have been higher.

I previously reviewed these boots and said I was returning them because of the defective buckle. But I really like them, so I took a closer look, and the rivet wasn't broken, it had just come unscrewed. So now I check that it is tight before I wear them and haven't had any further problems. I'm thinking I might put a drop of superglue on the rivet to help it stay tight. Of course, if it comes unscrewed when I'm not paying attention, and I lose the button part, them I'll be "screwed". And then I'll be calling Zappos!

The boot is cute and well-made but, as stated in so many of the reviews, it runs big. I ended up ordering a size smaller. Actually, if the sizing had been listed according to the European size inside of the boot, I would have ordered the right size in the first place. Someone needs to revisit the size conversions or Zappos should simply post the European sizes (most shoe shoppers know what their European size is).
