This is a really nice leather sneaker! I ordered an 11 but was sent a 10. The box was marked 11, but the shoes inside were a 10. Sometimes I can wear a 10 but this shoe runs pretty small. I would order an 11, but they are out of stock unfortunately. I'm even wondering if an 11 would fit, but they are so nice I would love to try. I'll keep an eye on them and if they come back in stock in the larger size, I will order!

I’m on the hunt for a new pair of casual tennis shoes for weekends/vacations that doesn’t scream American tourist and can handle moderate hills. I had never heard of this brand until it appeared in a Zappos search, but was willing to give them a try despite the price tag. You can definitely tell these are higher quality shoes (supple leather, sturdy soles, etc.,); you are not just paying for a brand name. Unfortunately two issues: 1) I found this particular style too narrow. I recognize leather stretches, but I don’t think breaking them in and/or going up a size would help. 2) I wasn’t a fan of the oval toe area. I felt it just made my feet look bigger. Surprisingly, I did end up liking the pink color – it is a light, shimmery pink, which would be great for the spring & summer months. If another style piques my interest, I’ll definitely try Blackstone again.

These are beautiful boots. I wear 7.5 normally, ordered an 8 due to lining...they fit great. I love that they are simple without distracting decorations. They do take some time to get on, as you have to loosen all the way down. Once on, they to feel good.

I love the idea of the shearling. The toe box being narrow makes it a tough fit though.

Toe box is narrow so I plan to size up.

I gave up socks when I moved to SoCal, and was looking for a warm sneaker. These are perfect. I'm a 7.5 and size was right on. They are a bit clunky, but that's the look. Perfect for what I needed.

Zappos customer service was excellent! USPS didn’t deliver my package, they sent the replacement and it arrived in 3 days. I’m usually between 7.5 and 8 sizes. I ordered size 8 and they fit perfectly. Very good quality!

Even though I really value reviews, I almost always regret straying from my normal 7.5 shoe size, and that's what happened with this shoe. I ordered a 39 based on reviews saying the sizes ran small, but I returned those to get my normal 38/7.5 and they're true to size for me. The leather is soft but sturdy, so they'll take some breaking in to soften up more. They're a good style, and I like them with the black laces (though I did relace them from how they arrived.) The white laces are more of a light gray/beige to match the suede accents. The sole is quite flat, unlike trainers for the gym with some flexibility. I'm hoping the soles, too, will soften up with wear. Overall I'm happy with this purchase.

These shoes are made from nice leather and they look very cool and trendy on. However, they have zero support. Converse sneakers have more support than these shoes. They feel like you're walking on a hard wooden floor. They are a full size smaller. I wear an 8 and I needed a 9. For the price they are not worth it. They are warm but the shearing is not great quality. You could put an insole in them but you'd need 2 shoe sizes up to do it. If you don't walk that much they can work. If you live in a city like NYC where I live you would not survive 2 blocks in these shoes. I returned them.

Wonderfully made with obviously quality material however runs short.

Loved the style! Very cool. But definitely ran small. I usually wear a size 38. I need to order a full size large.

These sneakers look really cute and are also soft and flexible. I've been trying to find white court shoes that are softer and more flexible than the usual Adidas type white sneaker, and these are almost perfect. I would like just a tiny bit more room in the toe box, but that's because I've gotten used to minimalist footwear that looks a little duck footed and has room for your feet to spread out. I sized up in these shoes (I'm usually an 8 in sneakers, and while the 8 fit, the 9 is more comfortable.) But the leather is very soft, and the sole is flat and flexible so they are almost minimal but more fashionable. If you like a shoe with structure and support these aren't for you. But if you are looking for a soft, good quality, fashion sneaker, they are a great choice. I bought the white, the leather is thick and slightly pebble grained. Rubber sole wrap and cap toe takes them into damp fall weather. And so far, they clean up well with magic eraser (for the rubber) and saddle soap for the leather. They feel like they will last, even in white, with a little care.

I've had these shoes for over a year now and I still can't break them in. Every time I wear them they give me painful blisters. I never thought shoes in this price range can be so uncomfortable. I can't believe they are still being sold on zappos. This shoe should be band from selling on any website. What a waste of money!

Very cute. I read previous review that the customer could barely get her foot onto. I had same problem. I took the laces out and re-laced. The vendor had this funky lacing style that tied the shoe together too narrow. Made a world of difference, but were still a little small. I have ordered next 1/2 sz up
Zappos Reviewer on October 09, 2019
Sneakers are gorgeous and velcro closure is perfect for a senior. However they gave me two huge blisters. I would order a 1/2 size larger.

Love the LOOK of the shoe, but that's where it ended - sadly....Well, almost. When I opened the box I was thrilled, but when trying them on I found they were extremely difficult to get on my foot. Then I realized instantly they were so tight I just knew I had received the wrong size, but I didn't. They run at least a half to full size smaller that you'd expect based on American sizing. They come in 2-digit sizing, ie: 37 or 38 vs a 7 or 8. Don't think you're getting a size 8 shoe when you're ordering a Size 38! You'll be getting closer to a size 7 or MAYBE 7 12. Once the shoe was on, I have to say it looked nice and I assume it would have broken itself in eventually, but I didn't want to risk it. Overall, I think they're great looking, but it feels like they're kind of misrepresented because they LOOK like they'd be super comfy, but that's just not the case at all.

Recommend to go 1 size up. Narrow fit. Love the style and overall quality, and pleased with the additional laces in white.

Shoes feel great, the color is nice. Super happy with them
Zappos Reviewer on July 29, 2019
Very supportive. Not squishy but while walking in them you don't feel any heel strikes. They do run small (half size). They are also a bit rigid so I did get blisters from them.

These boots were exactly what I was looking for so I was extremely disappointed when the boot, size 11, turned out to be too short and the toe box too cramped. I was hoping against hope that after a few wearings, the natural sheep wool would pat down a make a little more room and the soft leather would stretch out enough for me to wear them comfortably. But after wearing them four times, I became convinced they would never stretch out enough since my toes were squeezed up too tight and my toes would bang against the end with every step. Such is life.

I absolutely love these boots! They do run on the small side. I typically wear a size 36 (6-6.5) but I did have to return for a size 37. I think the inner, thick shearling makes the boots run smaller.
Kristin from Indianapolis on February 04, 2019
I had been eyeing this brand of boots for over a year now. I finally went for it. I LOVE THEM! They are very warm and snug. I definitely don't have room for any thick socks in them, but I don't need it due to the fleece inside. I am normally a 7.5 in shoes, but due to the full sizes, I sized up to an 8. I am so glad I did! They are so well made and stylish. I love them with skinny jeans.
