Rated 5 out of 5 by Kisa Comfy, attractive boots
These boots run a half size small but if you get the sizing figured out they're super comfy. I have a high instep, tiny ankles and small calves. My boots needed time to break in around the ankles but now they flex perfectly. These boots look good with everything, especially skirts. And they're perfect for cold slushy days as they are truly warm and waterproof even after five years of regular wear (a boot brush and occasional leather treatment keep them looking great). Perfect for winters in the Pacific Northwest. These boots are so warm I had to cut the feet off my LLBean Wellie liners so I wouldn't overheat (I like the way the cuffs look with these boots and didn't want to give them up)! I get compliments on these boots almost every time I wear them.
Sadly, I would not recommend these to women with above-average size ankles because the ankles in these boots are very tiny. Because of the amount of movement and flex in the ankles, the boots won't be comfortable if they don't fit in this area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DCmom21 Disappointed In Merrell
I received these boots as a gift in December. I love merrell shoes so I knew I'd be happy with the boots. They were extremely comfortable and never needed a breaking in period. They were easy to wear with black and brown and I got lots of compliments on them. And they really are waterproof, my feet never got wet in rain or snow. However, one day I noticed the accent buttons popped off and another one was coming off. These boots were not tight on my calves so I'm not sure how this happened. I'm returning them to LL bean for this reason only. I hope my pair were just defective and this isn't a reflection on the quality of Merrell products

Rated 1 out of 5 by LRuoto Terrible!
Worst pair of boots I have ever owned. They've given me blisters in two different places on my heel. Aesthetically, they're awesome. Otherwise, I would stay away. I definitely regret this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pbkennedy Very comfortable
Possibly the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. Order half a size larger; they run small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mtDNA Make sure to remove cardboard insert from foot!!
I always order a sz 7.5 when shoes run big and 8 when they run small. So I felt safe ordering the 8. I could not get my foot in and was going to return them when I found a second insert in the footbed. Duh! When I removed the cardboard, I got my right foot in; but just barely. My left foot was like a cartoon caper. I have moderately high insteps, so I could use an 8.5 even though the length of the 8 is perfect. They are on my feet right now and feel pretty good. I am still deciding whether to return and exchange for a 9 (8.5 is no longer available) or hope that these stretch a bit. I really like them and they look good on my fat calves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by janetq Best boots ever
I have thin calves and wide feet, so finding comfortable stylish boots has been impossible until now. It's a tight squeeze to pull the boot on over my ankles, but once they're on they feel great. It must be the Merrell foot bed. I receive compliments every time I wear them. Well worth the price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mimifrommichigan Great looking boots, nice fit and waterproof!
I''m getting quite a few compliments on these boots. I love the updated styling. I ordered a 1/2 larger as another reviewer suggested and this allows me to put in a little heavier sock, which will make it warmer for wearing during the Michigan winter we're about to have.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nhgirlygirl Disappointed
These are beautiful boots. I'm truly bummed on how they fit, I generally wear a size 8 and ordered an 8. The length is good but the fit above the ankle is extremely tight. So tight in fact that I could not bend my foot (I was wearing thin trouser socks). Forget about walking up/down the stairs. I also wanted to mention that I had difficulty getting my foot into the boot and once in, zippering them over my calf. My calf measures 12" wide at the largest point. I'm tempted in trying a larger size as I truly love the style.

Size: I wear 5 1/2 and 6 fits just right. I can wear socks and feel comfortable.
Color: Very close to what you see
Width: I have very narrow feet and I felt comfortable. I would not recommend this boots to a person with wide feet.
I love the buttons on the side. Overall I am glad I got this boots.
