The idea of the boot is there, but bad execution. The toe is made extra long, so getting your size makes you look like you have clown feet. Plus, the sizes run too large, and they don't have half sizes. So I wear a 10.5, but went with the 9, because it does not make my foot look gigantic. however, it is killing my feet because a 9.5 would have been perfect. (the 10 was too big).

Stylish-looking, mostly comfortable shoe. Two caveats, both about the sole strangely. 1) It's a very loud shoe, clomping like solid dress shoes than what you'd expect from something a bit more casual looking. 2) Hesitate to buy these if you have hardwood floors or do a lot of sidewalk walking: anytime you step on a pebble, it gets pushed up into the heel. If it's a large piece, it's enough that you have to stop and pull/kick/scrape it out. If it's a small piece, you may not notice it and end up gouging any flooring you're on.

These shoes are really awesome! I usually buy name brand shoes and I was hesitant at first. Very glad I got these. I've been complimented every time I wear them.

Cute shoe, beautiful leather. The texturing on the sole looks kind of weird and gummy. Difficult to get foot in and out of- ran too small. My size 12 felt way too narrow. It's hard to say if the fit length was too small given the narrowness issue, but it did feel awfully tight everywhere.

The shoes were commensurate with the price I paid. Good looking and comfortable. Would recommend going a half size smaller. Zappos service was impeccable as usual.

These boots came in just today, they are comfortable, and look great. The sizes do run large. i'm normally 11.5 in other brands I am 11 in these. I saw that in another review and i'm glad I chose a half size smaller. My initial impressions are very good. Great price and great style.

Absolutely worth every penny! True to size and width - I'm a 7, but I ordered 6.5 because with this type of shoe I expect they'll stretch significantly. It's exactly what I expected. They're also handcrafted and high quality and I expect they'll become my new favorite shoe for the fall and winter here in NYC, to replace my current pairs of beat up heels, and for when it's not yet snowing but no longer warm enough to wear my Dansko clogs and not yet appropriate for my Frye boots. They even have an additional rubber sole for traction, and they're extremely comfortable. Perfection. I'm thrilled with this purchase.

These are very nice quality boots. The heel is a nice height. I love the small circumference, my skinny ankles don't look ridiculous, but they may be just a tad too short in the toes. These are probably going back due to fit.

After receiving two pairs (one replacement pair) of these boots from Zappos, I finally had to return them and ask for a refund. While being a very stylish boot, they lack any sort of durability and the sole of the boot began separating on both pairs after just a few weeks of wear. I would only recommend these boots if you plan on standing around in them without doing any actual walking.

I liked the style of these as seen on the screen. When I received them I thought they looked even better in person. Great color and not as bulky looking as I expected. I have just sent them back for two reasons. 1. They were too small. I normally wear a 10.5 - 11 size in shoes and boots. According to a few reviews here that claimed these run large I decided to go with a 10. The 10 was too snug. A 10.5 would fit just right while a 11 might work also with a heavy sock. 2. There was a slight tear in the sidewall of the left side of the left boot where the rivet is under the last lace eyelet. I don't know if this was a factory defect or Quality control issue, but the leather upper must be extremely thin for a tear to develop in a boot that hasn't been worn. If it were not for the tear I would have exchanged for a larger size but I am returning them and already ordered the Triumph by Dr. Martens.

Look good but if you plan on wearing them for long periods of time, buy some insoles. Purely built for style not comfort. Feels like walking on cardboard sewn to leather/pleather.

I've had these sandals now for about 2 months and I've NEVER worn them outside (only inside the office). I must say these sandals are adorable. I love the look (quite different) and they are very comfortable. I thought the straps would be a problem, but they aren't. However, just recently I've noticed that the material on the front of BOTH sandals is slightly torn. I'm disappointed because I don't consider myself to be hard on shoes, I don't wear them often (maybe once or twice a week) and since I've only worn them inside the office, I don't even know how this could have happened. I don't even know if they can be repaired. Lucky for me, the tears are small and unnoticable, and I'll be able to wear them throughout the remainder of the summer season. For the price, I can't complain too much. It's a very nice "seasonal/summer" sandal -- just beware that the material is not durable. For this reason only, I've given this shoe an overall rating of 4.

The shoes were way bigger than the size indicated, but Zappos were very good about sending me a smaller size immediately. They even sent the replacements overnight. I love the shoes by the way.

I am a runner and have muscular calves. These were to loose on me and I had too much slack. You need to have bigger calves for these. Material was cheap and they looked like they wouldn't stand the test of time.

I loved these but they scuffed at the toe within 5 minutes of wearing them. I feel so disappointed about this and wish the inner sole was made of better material. I bought another brand of gladiators at the same time and have had no problems with those. Will be returning.

I always wear a true 6 and I couldn't even get my foot in the 6 of this shoe, I ordered the 7 and they fit perfectly. I suggest ordering a full size up on these beauties.

This is a really cute and comfortable shoe. It fits well other than the my heel slips when I walk. Too bad, I would have kept them.

These are really sharp looking boots, fit well with dress pants or a suit. When I buy regular cowboy style boots I usually have to wear thick socks to take up the extra room because I have a semi narrow foot. Not so with these, they fit like a glove. I give them 5 stars except that there's not much comfort in the footbed. I added some gel inserts, which took care of it. Still, I rate them as worth every penny. The sole also has good grip on slippery surfaces.

Not very comfortable (stiff and heavy)...I got these to replace my Type Z Harvey's (which I loved). I would pay almost any amount to get more Harvey's; they were my favorite boot of all time. The Taylor's, however, not so much, they feel a lot heavier (even though they're actually only 2oz heavier), the sole is very stiff and feels a lot more 'clunky'. the Taylor is just not a comfortable every day boot. That being said they do seem reasonably sturdy. I've been wearing them mostly every day for a few months now, and they are showing no sings of wearing out.
