The Roan Bee Bosco Grey looks black on my computer screen, but it is truly a dark chocolate greyish brown. The footbed is padded leather but w/o arch support. The width feels much wider than normal, so If your foot is narrow, this probably isn't the best choice. All in all, it is comfortable with very soft leather and stylish as well.

I ordered an 8.5 and it was too small. So, I moved up to a 9 and I swear both sizes are the same. Returning and not trying again. Sad because this shoe is very comfortable.

Great looking mid boot Very comfortable

These are beautiful shoes but they do run a little large. I am usually 8.5 - 9, I got size 9 and they are a little bit too long and wide. The shoes are very comfortable, the leather is very soft, I love the way they feel on my feet. They seem soft and comfy right away, so I wore them on a long walk yesterday and got a few blisters. Still, I am sure these will become my favorite shoes once I break them in. I recommend these, just be careful with the size.

These boots have very narrow calves - definitely couldn’t zip them up. Didn’t love the style or color which is unusual because I normally love Roan products.

I read reviews and tried a smaller size. Turns out they are true to size and need the 9. Planning to exchange!
Kara from Chicago on May 29, 2020
I love these, they are so very comfortable, just a bit too wide. Sending them back for a half size smaller. Hope that helps

The straps over the vamp/toes were quite tight. My feet are pretty narrow. The strap around the ankle was much too large but I do have chicken legs. Nice materials-beautiful sandal though.

I immediately thought these look like BedStu but not as expensive. When I got them, they are a BedStu company! That being said, great shoes, great quality and comfort. Still will but BedStu but will also add these to my closet.

Itsway too big. Im an 8 and recieved an 8. Its too big so I got a half size smaller.

Disappointing! The comfort and leather quality is what I expect of Roan but the execution of the style falls short. There’s an almost masculine vibe to the shoe - yeah, that’s it, it looks like a man’s old house shoe. The vintage vibe that I believe they were going for isn’t subtle. The “patina” effect is overwrought. As another reviewer remarked, the footbed is indeed too wide for the style. It feels wrong to say something bad about Roan because I have a couple of styles from them that are utter perfection for my style/comfort/quality preference. However, in the interest of the next person’s time and money, I’d just suggest avoiding this shoe if you’re at all unsure about purchasing.

I wanted to like these, they look cool and they're light weight, but they really are too uncomfortable. Two main things: 1) The way the heel is constructed puts excessive pressure on the wrong part of the foot, creating a cramped or pinched feel, unlike any other boot I've worn. 2) The inner lining (it's fabric, not leather) makes it really difficult to slide your foot in, so you have to loosen all the laces far more so than most boots. Now I know why so many boots use leather inner lining around the heel! it makes it way easier to put them on and take them off. With a few tweaks here and there these boots would have potential. I like how they're light weight and dig the gum soles - although the soles may be part of the problem still in need of some redesign. I got the grey ones and the grey is quite a bit lighter than expected but that's whatever.

I bought these for my boyfriend and they fit him perfectly!! He usually wears an 8.5 but the 8 fit him the best. Thank you Zappos! You never disappoint!

Love, love these boots! Fit perfectly right out of the box. SOOO comfortable!
Jill from Washington State PNW on March 05, 2020
Fits well. I like the grip and cushion of the soles. The style is not exactly like the online photos. It's much more "distressed." It looks like their covered in drywall dust or something. I plan to keep them and hope that the real wear and tear on them will make the fake wear and tear look less weird.
Emile from Inver Grove Heights on February 27, 2020
I am I love with these boots! I love the color - lots of boots are all the same generic brown or black or grey and this two-tone warm brownish grey is unique and I feel like it goes with everything. I'm tall and don't like wearing boots with much a of a heel and this boot has just enough of a heel and sole to frame the foot and provide support. I wish it had better arch support inside and a bit more grip in the sole, but for the price I paid I feel like it is a very good boot.

I loved the styling and the fact that they are leather and have leather linings, but I was surprised when they arrived. They seemed to be covered with a light dusting of a very fine powder. I am not sure whether this was a mistake or part of the look. They don’t look like that in the photos. I was going to immediately return them but they fit perfectly so I tried to wipe the powder off and was mostly successful. When I wore the boots with light socks, the left top edge of the boot literally cut into my ankle. I will keep them and have put tape over the irritating edge of the cuff. Hopefully I made the right decision.

First off, these shoes are GORGEOUS! I absolutely loved them but they are WAYYYYYY TOOOOO SMALL. I was so disappointed. If you wear a size 11... give it up! I truly believe someone who wears a size 9 could fit the size 11.
Zappos Reviewer on February 12, 2020
These shoes look great. At first they feel tight because they are, and I almost returned them, but after time, they loosened up. I was patient, and now I really love these shoes, as they can pull together an outfit. The dark toes do a lot of work in regards to that, and the leather slip in the heels help in that fashion regard, too. I'm glad I stuck with them. Also, the tacky soles are fun.

Great fitting boots right out of the box.
Mark from Lagrange on February 10, 2020
Felt to small and too narrow. Hope they do it on wide, beautiful boot color but very uncomfortable
Zappos Reviewer on January 28, 2020
Beautiful color, felt to narrow
Zappos Reviewer on January 28, 2020
These boots look great and feel pretty good. The pull up straps immediately tore off the first time I tried to use them. But for me, that's ok, since they were sort of big and in the way anyway. Doesn't give me much hope for the durability of these boots though.
