These boots are absolutely beautiful, but were not a good fit for me. I've been trying unsuccessfully to find a boot to fit my long thin legs and small calves (13.5"-14" calf, and I'm 5'9"). I was hopeful because the Ugg Australia website said that they had a 14" calf circumference, but in actuality it was much larger in my size (9.5). Unfortunately I'm returning these boots, because they just weren't what I was looking for. For someone a little bit shorter and with larger calves, I'm sure they'll look incredible. I don't recommend sizing up or down, these fit very true to size in the foot. Very comfortable foot bed, and overall a very attractive design. I'm disappointed that I have to return these boots.

I was thrilled when I got these because they are gorgeous and they didn't swim on my extremely thin (I'm talking toothpicks) legs. That being said, the thrill didn't last long because within five minutes I knew there was no way I could keep these...the leather is, as other reviewers have said, very stiff and uncomfortable and I knew right away they were going to hurt me. My feet are very thin and bony...just don't have any padding in my feet...it's very difficult for me to find comfortable shoes. I was very disappointed because I own several other Uggs styles and this is the first pair ever that have not been comfortable. Boo.

Gorgeous boot. Very stiff. Beautiful leather. And not easy to get on or off. If I went to an office every day, they might be a good investment. But am sending them back because they aren't an everyday boot and are difficult to get on and off. I can't really comment on the sizing because the leather and insole were so stiff, I didn't have them on long. They felt tight, but might stretch.

I have a very high instep, so even with the partial zipper, I was unable to get my foot into this boot. The boot is nice looking, but I cannot say if the fit is true or not.

Ive had these boots for about a year and I LOVE them. I don't think they are stiff, just good substantial leather that will last. I did go 1/2 size up and it is perfect fit. Never a problem getting them on or off. I work at a winery on the weekend and am on my feet for 8 or more hours straight and these are a dream. Wore then long hours right from the start. I came on to order them in black. Look good with leggings, skinny jeans or skirs or dresses. You can't go wrong. Just ordr up a half size and I think you will not have any problem breaking them in.

Beautiful, strong, well-made, classy leather boot from UGG; usual UGG sizing. Comfy after a few wearings "stirrup" lends equestrian look. Great worn over jeans. Not for wide-calf!

These fit perfectly. I am usually a 6½, but to be safe I ordered them in a 7. They fit great, the calf is wide enough to wear with jeans. The inside sole feels like fluffy slippers, making them extremely comfortable to walk in, especially when waking to the stadium. The color is beautiful. They are a great buy.

Love this boot! Wear it to work almost every day! Worth every penny! I wear a size 7 boot, but purchased a size 7.5 and so glad I did. Made it easier to get on and fits perfect! Would get in every color!

After reading other reviews on this boot, I was hesitant to order. I have a high arch and at first it was difficult to get them on. Once on, the doubts were gone. I absolutely love these boots - very comfortable and they fit like a glove. Extremely happy!

I love the look of these boots and so wanted them to work. But, I have long scrawny calves and the shaft was just too big. The fit was perfect for my size 11 foot.

I have bought 5 pair of Frye boots this season,2 steve madden and this is my second pair of Uggs. I think I love them more than most of my Fryes! I bought the chocolate and they are beautiful! I usually take an 8 to 8.5 in frye and uggs. I bought these a half size bigger to wear with thick socks. I have plenty of room. They are more comfortable than any of my Fryes. The inside lining feels very soft. There is a padded footbed making it very comfortable. The leather is very stiff....but I like that. It makes if feel like it will last a long time. The are easy to get on but hard getting off...but all of my boots with half zippers are like that. If you are debating on getting them, don't wait any longer!! You won't regret this purchase.

Buying these shoes were a bit of a surprise, actually. I have been saving for another pair of Frye's, but saw there were on sale and absolutely fell in love with the buckle in the back. I got the black when it was in stock, in a size 7. I am normally a 6 in the classic Uggs, but sized up due to other reviews. I probably could have gotten a 6, but they would have been very tight and required a lot of breaking in. The 7's are definitely roomy, but not "too big". The leather is stiff at first, but to me that just says quality. I wore them around all day the first day and can tell they are already softer. They are a more solid black than pictured, not quite so faded as the image. I highly recommend these shoes if you're on the fence, I can tell they'll be very comfortable and have already gotten a ton of compliments! The shearling in the sole doesn't make your feet hot a sweaty, just cozy. Thanks again, Zappos!

First, let me say that this boot is *not* your typical fashion boot. As other reviewers have commented, the leather is in fact quite stiff. This is a real, strong boot that needs to be broken in. Within two days of wear the leather had softened in the important areas and the toe box and heel contour had reshaped itself slightly to fit my foot. Once this happened, the boot became extraordinarily comfortable. It also became much easier to get on and take off after they were broken in. I'm basically living in these, and am getting ready to order the second pair in the darker brown color. So, before you turn around and return this boot, if you love it, wear it for a few days. You'll be surprised how comfortable it becomes.

These boots are of a high quality leather, look and feel. They run a little bit smaller than I normally wear, so the 1/2 size up advice was welcome. I am 5'10 and they are not quite as high as I would like, but I think they are just high enough. They would probably be the perfect knee height for someone 5'6 or 5'7. I plan to wear them with jeans for a casual look. I have average sized calf muscles I guess as they are fitted just right with jeans tucked in. I would advise people with shaplier calf muscles to definitely try these before buying. Average or smaller calf muscles may suit you. I love the flat foot bed, and the fluffy interior. I expect these boots will be my go-to winter about town boot.

I originally got these for my daughter but she decided they were too stiff. I decided to try them. I have worn them almost everyday since then. My feet are often cold and the lining in the foot of the boots keeps my toes nice and warm. My only complaint is the toe rubber has separated a little on each shoe. I do not scuff them but the rubber has started to tear. Other than that my boots have withstood a lot of wear. I normally wear a 9½-10 so I ordered the 10. They fit comfortably with wool socks and skinny jeans. I would definitely recommend them for others. My daughter even borrows them sometimes!

Very sad to return these boots. I thought they were stylish for Uggs and could be worn with leggings, jeans or a skirt. As mentioned by previous reviewers, the leather is stiff. I have wide feet and athletic calves for my height (14 1/2 inch calves) and found that when I tried to fit the boots over skinny jeans, the jeans would bunch up at the top. I found that wearing my socks over the jeans helped a little. For those with skinnier legs, this may not be a problem. Also, with my skinny jeans, I couldn't pull the boot all the way up my leg so the boot would wrinkle around my ankles. This was less a problem with leggings or bare legs. Another problem for me was that the stiff leather pressed into the tops of my toes making the tops of my toes sore. I think the leather would have softened with time but I was deciding between these boots and the Keen Bern Baby Bern boots, which were much less in price. Decided to go with the Keens.

This is my first UGG purchase, I'm a little conflicted about the quality. I wear a 7.5 -8 and the 8.5 fits great. Other reviews cite the stiff leather as a problem, I agree! First day I wore the boots I had bleeding sore on my ankles from the stiff rubbing. The next day I wore thin socks with hose and could tolerate it. I keep doing plies hoping the leather will breakdown, improved but still stiff after three wearings. I love,love,love the style. They are comfortable to walk in but sometimes I feel like I am clomping around in galoshes with the super flat sole. I bought the Chocolate which I really like, at first I didn't cause the leather creases to a much lighter color.

These are great boots! They are really very stiff when you first get them, do not worry. I wore mine around the house off and on for two days and was grocery shopping in them by day three. They loosen up pretty quick. If you have large calf muscles, these might not work for you. These are very form fitting boots. I find that I can not tuck jeans into them very comfortably either. You need leggings for that. Overall, I love them. They look good, are well made and are comfortable once you get them broken in.

I ordered these boots on a Friday night around 7 pm and they arrived Monday on New Years Eve. I was thrilled. I read the reviews before and was nervous about them fitting right. The comments where that they were too stiff and you needed to get at least a half size bigger. I bought the half size bigger. I usually wear an 8 1/2 and I ordered a 9. I think I could have ordered a 9 1/2 and would have been fine so I could wear heavier socks; however, I love them. They are sharp looking. They were stiff in the beginning but they wore in nicely and are not stiff anymore. They are very comfortable. The sheep skin inside bottoms is a great. I get many compliments on them.

I love my boots! But I do wish that I would have gotten them in my size instead of the recommended half size bigger. The boots are stiff when you get them but the leather will start to soften and stretch some. I still love them I just have to wear thick socks.

I love the look of this boot. However, I am 5'2" and they hit me right at the bottom of my knee. Because the boot is so stiff it is very uncomfortable so they are going back. Also, I ordered the chocolate color. The color is very nice until you walk. The boot discolors quickly; shows every line and gather. As always, Zappos has been great and the return seamless.

Wow, I'm so excited about these boots! After a long search for the perfect boots, I one day ordered the Frye Veronica Slouch boots on eBay because they were a good deal and they got so many great reviews. I had looked into the UGG Channing and they were very compelling, but at the time I thought I needed a really tall boot up to my knees and ultimately passed on them because of the lackluster reviews. I actually saw them for the first time last week on a girl at the market. I thought I'd just order to see what they looked like on me because they looked gorg on the girl. Well, I am definitely keeping them and getting rid of the Fryes. I noticed a big complaint about these boots was their stiff leather and them being uncomfortable. I don't know why - the sole is very flexible, and there is a luscious insole of fuzzy lamb's wool classic to Uggs! So awesome that they made a boot to keep feet warm. About the leather, in a side by side comparison to the Fryes, yes they are thicker, but I love that. The Channings feel like they'll last forever the leather is so great. I got a 9.5 in Frye and found them a little snug. The 10's in the Channing fit perfectly. The side zipper is a charm - gets my feet in and out so easily. Also, the metal piece at the heel is so clever too. I have always hated the look of boots when pants are over them. I don't always like to tuck pants into my boot. With the Channings, you can see the metal part which looks really cute with jeans tucked in or out. Only con is that the bottoms look cheap and do not have a proper sole. I will be taking them to the cobbler to put one on, but it'll be worth it. The other con is that sometimes I think they look a little cheap for some reason, but I love the little features and the thick leather, and my boyfriend says that he sees so many other women checking my boots out!

Theses boots are very pretty and stylishness. However the leather is a bit stuff but I think it will soften up with a little wear. I was disappointed that the entire boot was not lined with the ugg typical wool. For some reason I was thinking they were going to be. Only the footbed is lined. I am still trying to decide if I am going to keep them or not based on that. However if that is not an issue for you I think you will like them.

I really wish I could have justified keeping these boots. The calf was too wide, I probably just have skinny legs because it happens with a lot of boots. I just thought these appeared more narrow.
