I have wanted this boot forever! I absolutely love it. I purchased the expresso and they are beautiful. Considering ordering in black while on sale.

These are amazingly stylish, comfortable booths. The leather is beautifully soft, but strong, and the zippered details with over-spats are quite sassy. Highly recommended for staple boots with the slightest bit of steam punky flair. I've had them for about 1.5 years, and they are wearing extremely well - the heels and soles are well made, and the leather just gets more comfortable.

Beautiful boots, and very classy. I tried the peacock blue on in a store and then found them on sale at Zappos. Yay. They look great with jeans tucked in and the slight color in the peacock blue is enough to give the boots more personality without being too much. The foot bed was quite stiff out of the box but after wearing them around the house for a few days they started to form to my feet (bunions and all) and today I wore them all day with no problems.

Loved, loved, loved this boot! Super comfy, just the right bit of lift to feel a bit dressy, and a subtle sparkle for fun!

Love this boot! Very true to side in the foot; however, the leg is a bit snug. I bought the olive and chestnut colors and am keeping both because I love them so much! Great size heel, very comfortable.

Love this boot - highly recommend buying it. I was skeptical at first - couldn't stop thinking about them and bought them so I could see if they were as cute in person as on the screen. They are even better in person. I have thinner calves and these boots fit so perfect. Solid construction - well worth the money. They look very sexy paired with a shorter skirt or skinny straight jeans. Go for it - you won't be disappointed!

I'm so in love with this boot, the style is perfect, so well made, you can dress them up or down. But unfortunately I had to return them today; Did NOT want. The length of the boot felt about a 1/2 sz. to big, but with thick socks it would work. For the rest of the boot, they were just to big on me over all. I felt like I had on someone else's boots/ my legs where swimming in them, much to much room in them. I wanted them to fit a bit more closer to my leg. Thank you Zappos for your service, you're all awesome over there. Happy holidays to you all.

I have these in the espresso color and want to share that these look even better in person. The color is great with Navy blue, greens, grays and of course certain shades of tans, reds, and purples. I love the finish on these, love the height on these. Even though there is a heel on these, it is stacked which makes them a little more comfortable if you are wearing them for several hours while standing. I am finding that these are very versatile in this color. Also, I noticed the quality on these immediately after taking these out of the box. If you are considering these boots, I say go for it. I am very happy with these.

This is the boot that rocked the fashion world. Pliner, obviously inspired by the Equestrian world, ran with that very cool utilitarian look and refined it. I own the Devi II, in saddle vintage, and believe me I went through hell and high water to get it. Of course, Zappos came through for me via email notify. This year '13 is our third season 'together' truly a boot of a lifetime. This year I took them to my most trusted shoemaker for new heels and he raved over the quality and style. Every time I wear them, stares and compliments. I walked by a movie set and a production designer pursued me, wanting to lnow the source of what she called "Killer Boots". Last week was the topper as I wasn't wearing them, but a stranger that had noticed the boots a week prior asked me about them! Along with style, they provide amazing comfort. If I didn't wish to be cremated I would ask to be buried in these boots. As it is, when I'm gone, I hope they pair up with the bright person.

Beg, borrow, or steal to get these boots. Incredibly comfortable right out of the box. No wearing in period needed. Way more comfortable than any other boot I own, including Frye. Incredibly expensive looking (ok - they are expensive). I saw these boots on a salesperson in an upscale clothing store and had to have them. Be warned and if you have a wider calf you will not be able to zip these up. I don't have a skinny calf, but I wear a standard boot ok. I have these on with leggings and that's probably all I'll be able to wear them with other than a skirt. But they're lovely and I'm keeping them. They feel true to size and the zipper down the inside helps.

I have to say that I have never, ever written a review, but often read them and find them helpful. With this boot, (especially because of the price tag!) I felt compelled to help some others who may be eyeing these boots. Bottom line, is that they simply rock. ;). I have searched high and low for a knee-high boot, and haven't found anything truly like this in stores....from the fitted style, to the distressed leather, to the quality...it is all unique and simply outstanding. Although there are some boots that attempt to have a similar style, like the Fergie Ledger Too, they just aren't comparable, I did order the Fergies, and although very cute, it was loose on my leg, the leather was not flexible, and the heel is a bit dressier. The quality of the Devi is unbeatable. The leather is everywhere...the inside, outside, the sole, and even the area hidden by the zippers on the lateral aspect of the boot that are for design. The zipper works smoothly...no tugging here! The leather is very thick, so although these boots will stretch a bit, it won't get floppy with time....and it will definitely help provide some warmth to your legs with the cooler temps. Because of the cost, I went with practicality first, and ordered the distressed black suede. My thoughts being that black goes with everything, can be dressed up or down, and that with the distressed look, I wouldn't fret so much about every little bump and scratch. Love them, and am so happy I bit the bullet and went for it. As far as the fit, I have to say it is pretty close to true. I usually wear an 8, but tend to have to size up in half-size increments as the heel gets higher. They were a little stiff from the get-go, but are loosening and molding after just a few wears. The support is a bit less than moderate, so take that into account with sizing, in the event you want to add an insert. Keep in mind these tend to go fast when they go! If you google the Devi 2, it is pretty much nonexistent... I already put in my order for a second pair in taupe! ;)

I was impressed with the look of these boots right out of the box. I bought them in Expresso, and they are so rich looking, but also so well made. The leather is a wonderful quality, but feels soft like butter at the same time. The comfort of these boots is more like a bedroom slipper than a boot. Although a little pricey for me, I knew Donald Pliner would deliver excellent quality, and I am NOT disappointed! I am wearing them now for the first time, and I am wearing them with a corduroy skirt...so these look great with more than skinny jeans!

I fell in love with these boots online and ordered them on a whim. As a "real" professional equestrian I am excited that this look is so popular and this boot is a true equestrian look like paddock boots and half chaps which is what I wear in the barn at work all day. I was impressed with the quality of this boot and I know leather work and this suede is gorgeous! It is a real calf hugging fit (I have 15 inch calves). The foot bed is so soft and comfy! I LOVE these boots! I am trying to invent ways to wear them but sadly unless i start wearing my breeches out in town or buy more skinny jeans I really don't have much that goes with them. They look ridiculous with a skirt. If you have a closet full of tights and skinny jeans and love suede and these are for you!

This is a beautiful boot and very unique. I love the olive color and distressed markings of suede. I thought the boot may have been too trendy with the two zippers, however this is not the case. While stylish and fun, the boot is still a classic style. After returning 5 pair of Frye boots due to various fit issues, I found this boot to slip on easily and easy to zip up. I am 5'10" and wear a size 10. This boot sits just below my knee. I can zip the boot up easily with skinny jeans or heavier leggings.

The only thing I like about it getting cold is that it becomes boot season! The finish on these boots is similar to waxed black jeans. They are unique and even more gorgeous in person than on the site.

I purchased these boots in peacock, but they are black with a few sparkles. I was hoping that the boots would be a dark blue or distressed blue/black. I ordered the boots for my daughter in 8M, but was surprised that they fit me fine and I wear an 8 1/2. They did feel a little narrow on me, but these boots are all leather inside and out and will stretch as you wear them. I also think that the heels on these boots should be a lighter color (ie. grey or taupe) so that the cute cut of the leather is more visible. I still think these are beautiful boots and of very good quality. I am considering keeping these for myself since I got them on sale and hope that Donald J Pliner will come out next year with a dark blue (NOT black) or distressed blue/black devi4 where you can actually see the blue color. Does Zappos send customer suggestions to the manufacturer? Please do!

They look more beautiful in person than these pictures. These fit beautifully but the circumference was not 15 inches on a size 6. It measured 14 1/4 inches inside. The foot fit perfectly and so did the ankle.

Be careful with this boot in the blue. It is not as pictured. It is black with a bit of sparkle dust over it. I purchased one and thought it was an order processing issue. I purchased a second and same thing.

I agree with another reviewer. I ordered these boots in peacock blue. They've arrived, and try as I might and can't tell what color these boots are. They appear . . . black, with a tiny bit of . . . sparkle? I've held them up against a blue background, black, navy, grey, natural light, sunlight, etc . . . they are blackish-greyish . . . I give up. They are, unfortunately, nothing close to the photo on Zappos. Not blue. Pretty boots, but proceed with caution regarding the color . . .

Higher heel than expected & not a winner under trousers. This is a seriously gorgeous boot. But it's so bulky that it doesn't look good under trousers (I was wearing regular leg cords.) It pulled the fabric up/out so much my pants look way too short. Also, the heel is higher than expected - in the pictures (and reality) much of it is hidden under the spat, so you don't realize how high a heel it is until you're wearing them. If you like higher heels, and you intend to wear these over super-skinny trousers or with a skirt, go for it. I'm returning these with a sigh in my heart. It was an honor just to be near them for awhile.

The boot is nice and it is obviously high quality materials but the fit is crazy off. I am a pretty standard 9 (very occasionally an 8.5) but even the 8 in these was too long. The instep and the calf on the 8 were tight (being leather I know these would prob stretch out eventually); however, the ankle was way loose. I'll just have to keep searching for that great green boot.

It is very hard to find nice fashionable boots that fit my "athletic calves", and that are truly below the knee. I am only 5'4", but these boots did not come high enough on my legs. Trying to tuck in my jeans or even tights would have been impossible. I also expected suede, but the material they were made was a little weird, like it was shaved stiff suede. I have had my eye on these boots since last year (2012). Donald Pliner used to make their shoes in Italy, these however are made in China and the quality has suffered. I have the Melissa Frye boots black, but they are extremely casual, so I am looking for an alternative. Comfort: three stars only (it would not let me change it) Maybe for someone with shorter and less wide calves.
