These boots look nice, I get compliments often. Unfortunately, they are not everyday type boots unless you work somewhere where boots are not an actual necessity. Clearly these boots are made for someone who wants to appear as if they require boots for their lifestyle but in reality would be better off wearing some Velcro shoes. These have been basically thrashed with two months of moderate daily use. If you are looking for solid boots I would recommend Redwing, Danner, Chippewa, or maybe Justin.

Love the look but that's about it. Zipper is very hard to work sticks going down and coming up. I tried to loosen it up by moving it up and down several time but it stuck every time. And "Extra wide Calf" is a joke I could not get the last 10inches to zip on my 20inch calves. So sending it back.

Definitely a somewhat narrower heal than most but the forefoot leather stretches almost immediately to be perfectly comfortable. Honestly, I like the heal because it holds onto my foot nicely. As another reviewer pointed out, the silver on the sole is just painted to look like screws or studs. Overall they are pretty comfy but after 4+ hours of being on your feet the relatively flat footbed does take its toll. The slight angle created by the heal helps with arch support but, while not totally flat, there is not much arch support to speak of. Though not perfect they are pretty darn good, especially at this price point. I usually go for an 11.5 or 12 in most shoes (EURO size 45) and the 12 fit perfectly.

These are great shoes, I get lots of compliments on them. They are warm, especially when worn with wool socks.

I like the look but unfortunately they a horribly uncomfortable. I am a 13 in most and a 12 in some. I went with 13 and my toes are completely crammed. I was hoping with a little breaking in they would improve, but between that and the rock hard insoles they are almost unwearable for long periods. Since this is Zappos private label I thought they would be better boots. Wish I had just returned right off the bat.

Just got these and I'm sad to say they're going back. They are really long. I got a 7, but they are long enough to be 8s. Runs very narrow for a men's shoe.

Bought these for my boyfriend's birthday and he absolutely loves them. From what he tells me they are comfortable and they fit well. The color goes with just about anything (exactly why I picked them). I would definitely recommend these shoes to others!

I bought these boots for a two week trip to Europe and I am on that trip right now. I have worn them a lot on this trip and love them! They are warm but not true winter boots as there is not a lot of insulation for your feet. But I live in Florida and they would be very comfortable to wear maybe with the exception of summer. The double zippers are awesome and they go on and off quickly. I have received lots of compliments - they are just good looking boots! Oh and they have handled rain and frost well but I have not seen snow yet. Reviews of other zip boots like Varvatos say do not get them wet, etc. but these boots are tougher and can handle it!

I love this boot! Fit true to size and is very comfortable. it's great for that casual "smart" look but also works well in a casual office environment. I love the vintage look it has. Very unique! Highly recommend!

Love these boots! They are super cute - I get lots of compliments on them! I think the material is better than my last pair of boots that started peeling within 6 months. My only reason for a small markdown on the comfort is due to the slouch around the ankle area that causes the zipper to rub uncomfortably.

I love these boots. They look fantastic, are really well made, and a super comfortable. As comfortable as any pair of boots that I've ever bought straight out of the box. Plus they're the perfect mix of casual but still nice enough to wear to dinner with the Missus. Love these bad boys.

I really liked the look of these boots when they arrived, but I could tell right off they were too small. my instincts were correct, painful to fit in. I think Type Z brand must run small. I wear a size 13, they were a full size small (yes, they did say size 13 on the shoe!). Very stylish, but no size 14 available, so back they go. Fortunately with Zappos returns, it's painless.

Love these boots! I needed a new pair of brown boots and decided to try these. Never wore anything by Type Z but so far very impressed. Super comfortable even after wearing for awhile and walking around. Seem well made too. Perfect fit for me.

These boots were two different colors-one less warm brown than the other. Some distressing on the leather. Long and narrow sizing. But really cute style!

Was definitely not disappointed by these. very comfortable with good arch support. I'm between a 9.5-10 and these fit perfectly. I have a pretty narrow foot as well so I would recommend going larger rather than smaller if you are unsure. Good for the winter with an adequate amount of insulation. The factory laces are a bit short when the boot is laced all the way up which makes tying them a bit difficult, but once that's done you can just unzip the side and slip in and out.

Nice boots. Roomy in the foot, so there's no need to order a size up. Calf is the perfect size for me, not tight, and the boot has enough structure to stay up all day without slouching down too much in the ankle. Only complaint is the zippers...they are routinely quite difficult to zip up and sometimes to avoid making my fingers hurt, I use pliers to grip the zipper pull. Unzipping is no problem, but zipping is difficult about 85% of the time.

I really like the way these boots look, but they are a bit fragile. After a mere two weeks the sole started to separate and some of stitching has broken off. Despite this I was able to easily glue to sole back with some Shoe Goo and the stitching isn't really noticeable. I'm pretty satisfied with these boots, just be prepared to do some minor maintenance on them and try to treat them nicely.

I love these shoes. They're light and immediately comfortable. Like another reviewer mentioned, they do run large. I'm normally a 9 and ordered an 8. Fits perfectly.

Great boots! I have a very wide calf (approximately 17") and these fit nicely. I haven't attempted to tuck jeans in them since I don't wear skinny fit jeans...I doubt my boot cuts would fit. On the other hand, these look great with a pair of leggings and oversize sweater!

Calf circumference was much too big! We specifically were searching for 14" (and under) calf circumference for my daughter. This one was advertised at 14". It was really big, so I measured it and it measured 16". Rest of the boot was cute and fit well. Unfortunately, we have to send them back.

Ordered these shoes 1 size lower and they fitted perfectly. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. Recommend them highly.
