Love the color and style. Have had them on all day - first day and find them very comfortable. Having bad knees, they also offer enough cushioning when they hit the ground. Nice heel height. Look great with jeans.

I normally wear an 8 but they didn't have the brown color in my size so I tried the 40. I have a wider foot, not quite wide enough for wide shoes, but wide enough that 8s often feel tight, depending on the brand and style of shoe. This size felt fine in the width with a thin sock, but there was too much room in the toe box, and I could tell one heel would slip as the shoe got worn in (one foot is a little bigger than the other). Having said that, though, these were really, really comfortable boots. Very light weight, flexible but sturdy and felt cushy on my foot. I would have tried an 8 if they had it, but I didn't like the Smoke Cristallino color. If you look closely, you'll see the boot color on the video is a duller brown than the the still picture and has a grayish tinge. The video color is closer to the true color and it's not just the studio lights reflecting off the boot. In real life it's less brown than the video color, duller and with more of a grayish tinge that looks odd. I'm not sure what it would go with. There is a difference in sizing between the Rieker styles. I bought a pair of the Louise 73 in 40, they fit perfectly and are super comfortable right out of the box. Overall I'm giving it 4 stars because it's a super comfortable boot. It felt like it was probably closer to a 9 in size than an 8 1/2. Points off for the weird brown color.

Wow, Zappos, I ordered my boots Saturday and here they are on my feet Monday! Love the cozy wool lining and my other pair of Rieker boots have been so comfortable I wore them almost daily last winter. Love the barefoot feel with low heel and little arch support. I'm wondering how the synthetic vs. leather will hold up? And I don't mind that it's not leather...don't cows suffer enough?

Super comfortable, but ran quite small. I am a 9.5 narrow and I got a 10M and they were too tight and too small for me. Had I not found another shoe in the meantime, I would have ordered a larger size. They are very comfortable!

I ordered six pairs of shoes and when I tried these on I knew instantly that they were the ones. Well made, great support and super cute. I have a high arch and walk really fast at work so I need a comfortable shoe. These are well worth the money.

Love this boot, as I find I am always satisfied with the comfort of the Rieker brand. These have the perforation accent trim that I also look for in shoes, as stylish. I just received these and wore them around the house. As I took them out of the box the shoe looked really small and I thought it could not be a size 9. The size 9 is a true fit for my somewhat narrow foot. Lots of nice padding . Look forward to wearing them with my leggings. A really sharp boot.

My fit is between 8 1/2 and 9 narrow (AAA). The 9 provides a good fit.. Supplemented with an insert and a medium weight sock, these boots will fit great. Leather is soft, nice color and lightweight.

Ruh Roh! Love these boots. Even with pleather and not leather. Feel really good -- good room for your toes, warm, stable, easy to walk around in. The Ruh-roh part is the sole of the boot. It's soft black rubber that marks hardwood and tile floors when you walk around. I was shocked to see my kitchen floor filled with black streaks after I spent a few minutes in there in my boots. A further complication is that, because the rubber is so soft and scuffs off -- the heel is already worn down and looks like it will eventually just wear away altogether. the rubber gives you good grip, but what good will it be when it's all worn away and the top of the boot looks like new?

Very different & stylish look. Very comfortable as well. Ordered & happy with the size 39 (8)...have another pair of Rieker's in a size 40; has always been a little too big.

I have a very hard time finding comfortable shoes due to a very narrow heal. The shoe is not only comfortable, but also fashionable. I am extremely pleased with my new shoes.

I wanted to love this shoe. I was looking for something with a low heel that wasn't so boring. I have a pair of Rieker booties that I LOVE. The heel of the Louise 80 was perfect. Shoe was comfy. I loved the folds of leather. I agree with another reviewer, very Dickens like. But the toe. The toe. I just couldn't get past the super-rounded toe. I felt like I was a duckbill platypus in them. (Maybe because I wear a 41?) So back they went. So sad.

Ruh-roh! I love the boots. They fit perfectly, they are very comfy, and the lining will keep my legs nice and warm this winter. They look pretty groovy, too, especially with leggings or skinny jeans, But...the gray boots, with black sole...have left giant, dark skid marks all over my wood floors! I'm hoping that it will eventually stop, but what if it doesn't? It's bad -- not just a couple, but I turned and saw my dry, clean kitchen floor filled with the marks. When I wipe them, they rub off like a pencil eraser - little gritty bits of rubber. Quandary -- love and need the boots, but how many floors might I mark up? How long will it go on?

This is my first pair of booties and I'm glad I chose these! They are very comfortable. I'm on my feet all day and they felt great from Day One. I like that they are easy to dress up and dress down. The leather feels and looks nice. I bought the smoke color and it's a non-description, neutral color. I'll definitely be shopping Rieker from now on.

I just received my second pair and am disappointed. First pair was a 38 (my US size is 7M)and had some arch support and fit well. I wore them for a couple of years, plus for travel. This new pair has no arch support and is running larger. I have worn them twice, with inserts or 3/4 arch supports but they still gap terribly because they are too long. Very disappointed, especially after paying that much. Will give them away.

These boots are fabulous! They are very light weight and comfortable, perfect for the purpose I bought them - trip to Ireland. They accommodate my arch support without being too big in the footbed should I decide not to wear the additional supports.

These are cute and comfortable. I have had very good luck with Reiker shoes. They fit true to size and have some support. They also have some cute styles. These shoes did not disappoint.

Sleek looking shoes, although the style makes my small foot look bigger. Very comfortable but not as supportive as I'd hoped for my one foot with movement issues. I'm always grateful for Zappos reviewers showing me the best shoes to buy. They're never wrong!

I am typically a 6 1/2 M shoe depending on the brand. These boots seem similar to the sizing for Frye boots. My right foot is flopping up and down against the heel a bit to much, so I will add an insert to it and wear thicker socks. These are definitely an entire half size larger and would probably fit a size 7 foot best. I am going to keep them in spite of the sizing because going down a size would likely be murder on my toes, and the left foot might feel much too tight. You might want to buy 2 pair in with 1 below your average size to see which feels best. I prefer a roomy toe box and these provide that. The width seems true to size, and you might even like these if you are only slightly wider than a medium. They are comfortable enough to start wearing out of the box. Although not supple and soft as some of my higher quality boots,they're a good solid boot for casual wear. I like the height of shaft compared to other bootie styles. The way they sit at the lower calf makes them much more comfortable and attractive. Goes great with skinny jeans and even has room for regular straight cut jeans.

These boots look great in the picture. They're okay in person. I typically wear an 8 1/2 so that's what I ordered. Too long and too tight across the top of my foot and my feet are normal. And they aren't black black. More like grayish black. I'm keeping them but only because a friend promised to buy them if I didn't want them. Kind of disappointed because I really wanted to love them.

I love the style, but most of all, I love how comfortable these are. No breaking in period required. Comfy, right out of the box.

I've had a couple of pairs of Riekers that I've worn almost daily for 7 years, and they are finally wearing out. I wanted to replace them with Louise 80. Unfortunately, this shoe gaped around the top of the shoe and the heel was too loose for my narrow foot. I'll try again with another style, I guess.
