Cute boot and true to color, but I made the mistake of also trying a (much more costly) Aigle rain boot in the same order, and Chooka is simply nowhere near the top-notch feel, comfort and quality of the Aigle rain boot. If Chooka was the only boot out there, I would be very pleased to get it. It would be a good Wellie for gardening and being in the yard in the rain. But I'll be living in my rubber boots once the rains begin, walking a lot on mixed surfaces -- pavement, sidewalk, roadside edges with no sidewalk but a lot of mud and roots, plus the garden and yard in the rain. Aigle's insole was built up inside, softly lined, solid, and the shaft very soft, and it wiped the plain insole of Chooka from my options in a single step. Chooka is well priced for what it is and how charming the style -- for not much more than the Wellies at the feed store, you get as solid and durable a boot (and much cuter!). But the Aigles won in a walk. Sorry, Chooka, I did love the color.

I wanted these boots to work. I love the color! But they are way too big and "bunchy" in the ankle area. The material folds and bunches in a weird way. Had to return them.

I ordered these as a hopeful alternative to Hunter boots, & I've had them for about 2 weeks. The rubber seems to have stretched a few centimeters since I got them. I'm 5'4 & usually wear a shoe size 8, & I worried the shorter boot height would make my legs look even shorter. However, since I ended up ordering a 9 (so my large calves would fit), the boot height covers about 1/2 of my calf. (It's not perfect, but my large calves limit my tall boots options.) The ankle space looks a bit big/floppy, but it doesn't feel too big with thick/winter socks. I've worn these boots comfortably with both leggings & jeans. I've walked through light snow (up to 7in.), small creeks (covering the entire foot) and muddy/gravel soil, & the boots kept my feet dry & comfortable. They never needed to be readjusted or pulled up. I'm a fan!

I love these boots and they are my second pair of Chooka's but they just don't last. Second pair that has split open at the ankle areas and the lining fell apart.

The rubber split in several places, along the back seam and on the both sides, where the boot shaft folds when walking. Overall lasted about 2 months.

I love these boots! I must have tried a dozen different styles before these and had almost lost hope of finding a pair that both fit well and looked great. These are roomy and probably wouldn't work for a narrow foot but are perfect for me. They have a bit of arch support and are so comfortable that I am able to wear them all day long. I love the height and they are wide enough for skinny jeans but still look slender. I am a bit concerned about the durability of the buckles based on other comments.

Super cute and thick rain boots! The only issue was the size. I am an 8 and have never had an issue with sizing, but this boot fit way too tight with thin socks.When I tried it with my thickest socks, still super snug and my toes felt like there were being crushed. Size up!

I absolutely love these boots. I have had them over a year now and still get compliments on them when I wear them. I love that they are not your traditional Hunter boots. I love the brown leather buckles at the top! They are very sturdy and comfortable and really keep out the water and rain. I can wear them with thick boot socks or just normal socks. I highly recommend these!

Great rain boots. Classic design. A little tight in the calf area if you need a little more room there, but they still fit over skinny jeans. Pretty comfortable for walking around.

I absolutely love these rain boots! Not only was this my very first time buying something off the Internet, but I bought rain boots that are so hard to find that fit right. You mostly have to try rain boots on before you buy in my opinion. But I live in a very small town and the only boots around here are cowboy boots or fishing boots. I am a girl and want something cute, duh! My calves are a little bigger and I was worried that either I would pay for these boots and never get them or they would not fit. Nope! My boots were here the next day! And they are so comfortable! You can expand them with the buckle or make them tighter. They sell in only whole sizes. I wear an 8½ so I ordered a size 9, and they are perfect! I seriously wear them everyday. They go great with jean shorts, any leggings, and long jeans. They are very reliable and will not wear and tear out! I am so happy with my boots and the service by Zappos! This will not be my last purchase for sure! I Definitely give this five stars. Both the site and the boots!

I purchased these boots from a bricks and mortar store. Within 5-6 uses, the boots cracked and were unusable. Overall, I liked their appearance - they are adorable boots. BUT, they were not comfortable (no arch support, the bottom felt unstable), they were not easy to walk in. And they literally cracked on the side within a few uses. A friend of mine experienced the same, except her boots cracked on the seam. Not worth the money.

I bought these because they looked sturdy enough and I liked the brown leather detailing. Upon first wear, noticed they were a little on heavy side, felt a bit wide and had absolutely zero insulation -- but I wasn't too bothered. However, I have had them just over a month, and they already have an inch-long hole near the sole. Terrible quality. Would not recommend.

I needed these boots so I could walk my dogs in the snow, they are great, not a drop of snow/water has gotten my feet wet! I think they will be great when I work in the garden in the spring too!

I was so excited to find such a fashionable yet seemingly functional rain boot. They seemed to be a good fit when I tried then on, but I did find that they lacked support in the foot bed. I was okay with that, so I simply bought an insert to give my foot a bit more support. Like other reviewers, I did find that after a few months of wear they no longer kept my feet dry, and today when I went to put them on, I found the entire back seam of one of them had split. I have owned this product for less than 7 months. Don't waste your time on this shoddy product just because its cute.

Pregnant? Thick calves BEFORE pregnancy like me? I love that these fit. I've had these now for about 4 months and beat the heck out of all my shoes, but these still look brand new. Before pregnancy, my calves were 16 1/2 inches. Walking around downtown Chicago in fall through early winter here I am thankful for a boot that's easy to slip on and fits my calves when wearing work pants or maternity jeans. I wear them with thick Hunter brand wellies socks and they still fit comfortably. I am a normal size 9, I might have been a little overzealous on how large my feet and legs would get, and I ordered a 11. a little loose around the ankle, but fit fine walking to my office when my feet and ankles start to swell. I purchased three other (size 11s) at the same time to see which I liked most...these won. Other contenders I thought were thick calved or liked... Hunters, lol. Nope...only if barefoot, even then they are not that comfortable. Bogs...looked cool, thought the hole on sides would allow me to pull them up during pregnancy, they hurt in the arches when I walked in them and would not allow enough room for socks or pants to tuck into easily Kamicks. Still too tight around ankles Pros of Chookas: Fits large calves WITH thick socks and pants tucked inside -Easy to slip on -More support or cushion the other I tried. Moderately warm...no need for my winter boots yet here in December Cons: Ankles scruch a little (not felt, just shows if I dont wear thick socks).

I have worn these boots a few times, and unfortunately they developed a split along the bottom inside seam where the top and bottom parts of the boots connect. I was so disappointed, as I like the look of the boot and have received lots of compliments on them. Zappos customer service was AMAZING! I just got off the phone with them and they are sending me a new pair, as these are most likely defective. AWESOME! Zappos is a fantastic shopping experience with top notch customer service, which makes me want to be a repeat customer and spread the word that everyone should shop at Zappos!

Do not buy these boots! For starters, they are matte. So no matter what they always look dirty! I took them out of the box and they were covered in a white powder that I cannot get off. I have only worn these shoes (for very short periods of time) about five times and the inserts are already bunching up and ripping. They are not comfortable to walk in at all. I am so bummed I bought these boots and didn't realize how terrible they are until it was too late to return. Do yourself a favor and do not waste money on these boots.

I bought these boots for my daughter for her job as a camp counselor. Not only are they cute, but she said they are a lifesaver! they are 100% waterproof and comfortable. The adjustable strap is great if your calves are not bony, plus they are easy to slip on and off. Also, she was looking for navy blue, so yeah, kind of perfect! She debated to order 8 1/2 but opted size 8. Don't order up a size! The size is perfect even with socks.

The shaft is narrower than I hoped and the inside footpad is a bit thin so you feel the waffle pattern of the inner sole on the bottom of your heel after a while. One of the grommets on a strap is also nearly pressed through so I'll have to find a way to mend it before it tears all the way. Otherwise these boots seem pretty sturdy for outdoor adventures.

They are nice boots but they do run large. If you usually wear size 8, order size 7. I have to wear 2 pairs of socks to keep them flapping around on my feet. And they are a little heavy. Otherwise very happy with purchase.

I love these boots. I tried a couple Kamik boots and while I liked the styles of them, they were just too tight in the calves to wear anything other than skinny jeans, and I want to wear work pants and my boot cut jeans too. These are perfect for that, they are very comfortable. I usually wear a 9 or 9½, but the 9 was too big so I had to exchange for an 8. And I still have enough room for thick socks.

Mixed feelings on these. I've only worn these three times, and I've already discovered a major problem. The color rubs off. After very light wear, the blue color is already coming off on the back seams and around the buckles. I would expect to see this over time, but not after only a couple uses. As far as comfort, fit, and style go I have no complaints. They're cute, cozy, and keep my feet dry and happy. But based on the color rubbing issues, I probably wouldn't recommend these.

Ladies, these rain boots will fit around larger calves! I have tried 4 or 5 different rain boots over the past month (thank you, Zappos!) and NONE of them would fit around my 16 inch calves, except for these! I was going to try the Hunter Short next but wasn't sure about spending so much money on a rain boot. I think the quality looks good, although the true test will be out in some rain/slushy weather. As for sizing, I wear a 10 in most shoes (10 1/2 in athletic shoes), and I ordered a 9. The length is perfect for my foot, although it is a little narrow. I seem to have developed wider feet over the years after having 4 kids. However, I think a 10 would be too large. Another plus, no bad odor permeating from the boots. A pair I tried from another store (much cheaper boot, price and quality) smelled so strong I couldn't even stand it. So far I am pleased with this boot. One note, yes, they are a little bunch around the ankle but I find most boots are so it's not a deal breaker for me.

I was so excited to get these boots, but unfortunately, they didn't work for me. I will never be able to wear cute boots. My calves are just too meaty for these "wide shaft" boots. Ironically, I felt like these boots were flappy around the ankles. I am usually an 8.5 and got the 9, they were roomy, and if my calves had fit in them, I would have kept them. I did think the buckles were kind of cheap, but as ornamentation, they are cute. If you are lucky enough to have super skinny calves, then these boots will probably be a good fit for you, and keep you looking cute and your feet dry. For us with muscular legs, it's short boots and wet feet.
