Rated 5 out of 5 by kimberly686 Great boot
I am a 7.5 in every shoe I ever wear, and I ordered a 7.5. It fits great! I wear them with thinner socks (ones I'd wear with tennis shoes) and have no problems. They have stretched out a bit to where I can wiggle my toes quite a bit. The sole is very padded and comfortable for walking in for long periods. I have walked for several miles in these in one outing and my feet barely hurt, similar to running shoes. I am 120 lb and 5'5" and these don't hug my calves, but I really don't care. When I wear them with tights it's not even noticeable. I don't mind the elastic in the back, but I can see where it may be a turn off to some. They are so comfortable that the benefits out weigh this. I also find them very warm. I can wear them in 30* weather with thin socks and my feet are still warm. I love these and may have to buy the brown pair!

Bought these in my usual 7.5, but exchanged them for 8 and fit is much better. I have a narrow foot and the medium is still comfortable. I can wear thin socks in them and my foot is not moving around a lot. I like the "Dansko-like" look of the heel. Perfect for keeping me up off the street and still very comfortable. I have worn them to work where I sit, stand, and move around a lot for 9 hours a day. The sole is quiet, so I don't "click" as I walk down halls at work. I get lots of compliments on them. I'm 5'4"and the height of the boot is great alone, but also with boot toppers/socks. I'm not tall enough to wear those with my higher boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WIme Excellent quality, beautiful boot, but....
I had to return because the calf of the boot was a bit too roomy for me. This review is based on 8 1/2 Wide. Boot runs true to size. 'Wide' is extra roomy. Fear not if you have bunions. There's PLENTY of room in the Wide. The sole is very comfortable - has a lot of cushion, flexibility, and support (not hard or thin like 'cowboy boots'). The stitching is excellent quality. I wasn't a huge fan of the stitching being white/gray on the black boot, but was willing to get past that because of the comfort. The only bummer for me was, the calf circumference of the inside of the boot is 15" but was 2" more than I needed leaving a gap at the top even over jeans. If it were adjustable, I would have kept these boots, but was looking for a more snug fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Angel2110 Great boots!
I really like these casual boots. I'm 5' so most boots tend to look like knee high boots on me. These are a great height that sit a couple inches below my knee. Nice quality too. I'm normally a 6.5 but I ordered a 7 and I'm glad I did as they run a little small. The heel height is 2 inches (its not mentioned in the description).

Nice boots. I normally wear a size 7. I returned mine for a 7.5 because I wanted to wear socks. These are casual boots. Not city clicker boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EarthLover52 Nice Boot, Cushy Sole
This boot has many stellar qualities. It zips up easily, has a sturdy but cushy sole, large toe box, and removable insole for my orthotics to fit easily into the boot. I haven't worn it outside of the house yet since I am "feeling" it out. So far, my arthritic feet haven't complained much. I do have to pay attention to the slight heel lift that changes my stance a bit. Due to an arthritic spine, I am still discerning whether I can wear these or not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by shopperchicago just ok
These boots seemed to be well made but styling did not appeal to me. Their height was high calf which had an awkward appearance. Also the calf diameter was very wide and gaped widely around my leg. So I did not keep them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tparty Great boot for commuting to NYC
I bought these boots to use commuting to NYC. I wanted something basic that would look decent with a long dress coat. I also wanted a boot that would give me some traction and keep my feet warm. So far I have been pleased. The boots are a little on the casual side - I think this is due to the light colored stitching. I like the fact that the zipper does NOT zip all the way to the sole - this way if I do step in a major puddle I have a better chance of not ending up with a wet foot. After reading the reviews that this boot ran a little small -- I ordered up a size and went for the wide version. In doing this -- my boot is just a tad big -- but with tights and a sock on the boot fits fine. I also thought the calf part of the boot was exteremely generous -- this part is definetly on the loose side. So far these boots have performed great.
