I really like these boots, however be aware that they do not run true to size. I wear a 6.5 in 99% of the shoes I buy. So I ordered a 6.5, and they were too snug. I wore them on carpet for about 5 minutes just to see if I was imagining, and my toes just couldn't take it. I exchanged them for a 7, and the 7's are perfect. So order a 1/2 size larger than you normally do. Luckily, Zappos doesn't charge for the shipping on these type of issues, otherwise I would have just returned them rather than pay shipping twice. But I do really like them now that I've been wearing them a few weeks. They are very comfortable. I don't want to sound like I think they are masculine, but just want to note they are a little more rugged on the bottom half of the boot than I had expected. Not necessarily a feminine shoe, but I still really like them with skinny jeans tucked in and the right top.

These boots are super cute. My only complaint is as I walk, the zipper on the left boot starts to un-zip and after walking just a short distance, the zipper drops all the way to the bottom, and makes the shoe loose until I finally re-zip. Disappointed with this defect - not sure if I can return them since I had to wear them to figure this out.

These are great boots, warm and felt great! On each foot, however, a split developed on the inner side just below the big toe. I know that there was nothing I'd done to cause the damage as it was too coincidental that it occurred on each foot in exactly the same spot.

These are really nice comfortable boots for someone who's looking for something nice to wear to work in the winter months. While the arch support isn't the best, the boot is very comfortable, and I didn't have to break it in at all. I could wear these with jeans, skirts, or slacks. They are very versatile and kept my feet toasty warm on cold days. I recommend wearing them with the FoxRiver boot socks!

Great, warm shoe! I haven't given it a thorough test in the rain/snow, but I can tell you that it has kept my feet very warm on the coldest of winter days. Ankle height is nice and versatile. One thing to note: I had originally ordered a 10.5 and it was just a bit too short. I exchanged the 10.5 for an 11 and truth be told, there was not a big difference between the 2...the 11 had a little more space but felt about the same length.

Bought this boot to wear on a trip to NYC in the middle of winter. I was so pleased with the lightness and warmth of the boot. So comfortable, I actually wore them on the trip back home!

I absolutely love these boots. They are super comfortable, look great with jeans, and are warm. I wish I could have this exact boot without the fleece lining. I have had many people ask me about the brand and my friends all want to try them on. I ordered these in an 8W, to give me a little more room in case I wanted to wear a thicker sock. They are a true 8W. Awesome fit.

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarks

These boots are wonderful. This past weekend it was -30F here in Montana, and they held up amazingly well. My feet were warm, and the soles kept the traction even in those bitter temperatures.

Had to edit my review a bit and change the sizing to Felt a half-size smaller. My toes are hitting the edge of the shoe. As the day goes on, I am finding I am not happy with these boots, even though they are comfortable width-wise.

Well, today (12/10/13), they get their first test in the snow. However, I don't think they are worth the dollars I paid. The soles can be A LOT thicker. I wanted a warm boot for snow and the sole is so thin that my feet are cold. And I have on wool socks! Come on Trotters, you can do better than this.

I always have a difficult time finding shoes because I am an 11┬ŻN and have high arches. These boots fit me nicely and allowed me to put my orthotics in. They could have offered a bit more arch support, but fortunately my orthotics remedy that somewhat.

The quality of this item isn't great. There is a piece of material that sticks into your upper heel. Very uncomfortable!

Cute boot, definitely with a more snow boot look than casual dress look. I have a narrow foot and it fit like a glove there, but was a good half size short, maybe more. When I pulled the boot out of the box I had to check the size before I even put it on--it looked so short I thought the wrong size was in the box. So back to Zappos they go.

I bought this boot for my grandmother who needs wide boots. She tried them on and said that although the heal was roomy and comfortable, the toes were a little squished. The toe area seemed rigid and not flexible. So I returned these shoes. Keep in mind, this is only after trying them on once.

I bought the cognac faux leather version for a good sale price on Black Friday, and felt like they were worth about half of what I paid. Despite the shearling, the toe box is huge and my foot was sliding forward, banging my toes into the front of the boot. The faux leather is also really flimsy, even though it is fully lined, although this might be a side effect of the bendy sole. They were just too cheap looking and uncomfortable for me.

This was a great snow boot at first. However, once unzipped, I typically use the toe of one boot to help push the other boot off my foot at the heel, if you can picture that. But apparently I did that one too many times because now the heel is separating from the boot. I guess it's my fault for not pulling them off with my hands but that's never happened to me with a pair of boots before. Still a bummer because I've really only worn them a handful of days a week over the past couple of months. That's the good thing about buying from LL Bean or the like - you can always return no matter what. Still obsessed with Zappos though so off to find another pair. :)

I have an ancient pair of Trotters snow boots I dearly loved and wore out. I feel that the quality has gone down. Despite the picture above, there is no quilting detail above the ankle - just some plasticky smooth fabric. Based on reviews I went a half size up and that was a mistake. Should have ordered regular size. Heel area rubbed my foot in a bad way. Boot is loose around ankle - I feel like snow and water would get right in if pants not tucked in.

I bought a similar pair of Trotters boots which lasted several years, were extremely comfortable and well worth the money. The zipper was up the front. I purchased this pair because my old Trotters began to show wear (cracks in the leather where the toes/foot bends when walking). I purchased the exact same size. However, the Blast III has a zipper on the side. I simply cannot get them on my feet without five minutes of struggling! They are extremely hard to get my feet in. They are not worth the trouble. I purchased these last season and made the mistake of not returning them. After struggling to get them on I used my old pair. This year (too late to return) I am actually giving these brand new boots to whomever will take them and searching for something else. I do like the Trotters brand. I have several pairs of their shoes. They are very comfortable.

I have been buying these boots for many years. I have had more than 10 pair. However, the last 4 pairs I have gotten have been of lesser quality. So much so that after 2 months of wear the tops cracked where my boot creased with each step. The material is not the same. Before I would get over a year's worth of wear now I only get 2 to 3 months before they look trashy and have holes where the material cracks. Stop getting these. They are no longer a quality boot.
