I needed boots, because it snows a lot where I live. These boots were better than I thought they were going to be. I easily waterproofed them, and painted the buckles with clear nail polish, because I'm afraid they might rust. The buckles on the boots are not of the best quality, yet the sole is very thick. The sole is made of plastic-like material, so there's only a decent grip on them. I wear em when it's not icy out. There's also an arch on the sole, which is nice. They do run SMALL. I ordered a size 8, and they fit to my calves with just skinny jeans on. I plan to order another pair in black, because I ordered the brown ones. I was also worried they would look cheap, but, in person, they don't! I've gotten many compliments on them.
Love these boots! I ordered the tan and was so pleased, I ordered another pair in grey based on a review that said they color went well with everything; and it does! I saw someone wearing a black pair at work but did not think they looked near as well as the other colors. Love the zipper - easy to get on and off. See comments on color, quality and sizing!
When I first put these boots on, I walked into the bathroom and about fell on my you know what... very very dangerously slippery when you first put them on so be careful. The heel has traction but marked my floor up with black marks but after wearing around the house and walking around outside carefully, they worked the problem out. I wore these shopping today and I absolutely honestly can say that I have never had boots that I liked more than these!! These are absolutely perfect!! They hug my calf perfectly, they kept my FEET WARM IN -20 DEGREE WEATHER and that was very surprising to me since they are so thin. I walked several hours and my feet didnt hurt or get tired the hole time which is also amazing cause I have painful high arched feet. So over all 5 stars for sure! First time shopper and was blown away from the moment I started shopping, to checkout, to receiving my boots. Perfection!!!! Will for sure be shopping again and getting the word out to my friends how easy it is to shop this site and how great the quality is and what you see is what you actually get and fast shipping and low prices for great quality.
This is for my casual biker look. Love them. They are a suede type of material, light weight and the calf fit is true to size so be sure to measure yourself carefully.
First the bad... These are inexpensive boots, and you get what you pay for. The material is very thin and even a little bit of slush and snow will leave you with wet socks. They're fashion boots, not functional boots. Even fresh out of the box, I could see places where the stitching was loose, and sure enough, the 1st time I wore them dancing, a couple inches of stitching ripped. Easy enough to fix, but I shouldn't have to fix brand new boots. Now the good... They are very cute! I bought them in grey and they really do go with everything. They are even cuter in real life than in the picture. I get lots of compliments. Also, I like the fact that the calf muscle part is wide. I have thick calves, and these boots zip up with no problem. Despite their flaws, I'm considering getting another pair in brown and just being careful not to wear them in wet weather. I took the recommendations and ordered 1/2 a size up, and they fit perfect.
I used to purchase from Overstock a lot in the early 2000's. Always happy. I ordered these boots in Camel, Size 8 (wide). I always wear medium and typically in Size 7.5. However, they did not have the color I wanted in my size at the time and I REALLY wanted these boots! They actually fit okay. Yes, they are a bit wide, but I just have to be sure to wear socks--which I would anyway. I try to wear thicker socks. It helps a bit. I can still walk and get around just fine. I didn't care very much for the square/rounded toe, but the pictures show you, so you know what you are getting. The camel color works great and I got a lot of compliments. Deducted one star just because I was a bit tiffed at the time when I couldn't order in my preferred size. Will definitely continue to buy from Overstock.
I have wide feet and calves so I was worried that they wouldn't fit. I usually wear a 9W but I ordered an 8.5 (brown) instead, which miraculously fit perfectly on my feet! They are so comfortable and light, but warm at the same time! They have rubber soles so I do try to be careful when walking on slippery ice or cement/wood floors. The buckles are more for decoration because there are zippers on the side. They are about 14 inches tall, which is great because they cover most of my lower legs. I usually wear them for about 7-8 hours a day with my jeans and don't feel any pain/discomfort at all.
Great Boots! Nice Style! Very Comfortable! I have wide feet so the round wide toe area is great. With narrow toe shoes/boots I usually have to order a size larger. There's enough room in the boot to wear thick socks. The grey is slightly darker than expected. These boots are meant for fashion. I wouldn't dare wear them in the rain or snow. I don't think the material will hold up in those condition. Luckily I live in Georgia and we don't see much snow. The sole of the boot looks sturdy. Great fashion for the price!!!
I ordered this boot in grey color arrived slightly darker then what is pictured. I am concerned about the material on the boot as it doesn't seem like it would hold up well if they got wet. The shape of the boot is also slightly different in the picture they look angled and when I got them the top was straight. These are great if you have larger calves zip easily up mine and can be worn with leggings or skinny jeans. The shoe part of the boot runs about 1/2 size too big so if you have a narrow foot I would size down. Overall I am pleased with this purchase.
The boots look great. Things to keep in mind: - sizing is a little small - half a size - color of the camel boot is a little darker than the picture - THERE IS A ZIPPER on the inside of the calf!!! Very excited about this - Toe of the boot is more square - pretty wide calf on the boot
Love these boots! Overstock shipped them and I got them in 5 days! (including weekends!) They were so cute exactly like the picture usually where a 6 1/2 but I ordered a 7 and their perfect! If your worried about big calves mine measures 14 1/2 at the biggest point (calf muscle) and I can wear skinny jeans with this and if zips up perfectly snug. If you want to wear flare jeans with these it might work but I haven't tried as long as their not tooooo flared. Not waterproof, Even though its flat to the appearance it feels as if theres about a 1 inch slight build in heel inside the boot, the boots are made of a nice suede material. Overall great product and If you don't like them there is a wonderful return policy so go ahead give them a try!
I bought the black pair and the color was as the image. I usually wear a 6.5 or 7. So I ordered the 7 and the boot fits fine, but my big toe just barely touches the inside tip. So If you want more room, you may need to order a size up. The boot is wide so there is a lot of side wiggle room, which is great for me since my feet are on the wider side. The boots are cute and I do like them. I use them for my casual outings, but I probably wouldn't use them for something more formal. I have used my boots a few times already and so far holding up fine and they are comfortable. But for the quality, I think they are about $20 overpriced. Had I seen them in person before buying them, I probably would not have bought them, not for that price at least. I didn't return them because I didn't want to pay restocking fees. I would recommend them if they were cheaper in price.
Boot bought for my grand-daughter. She was extremely excited when she received them because there were some in a local store that she liked but her size was not available. This boot was exactly what she wanted. Packaging was great. The buckles were wrapped and the color was as presented in the picture on line. Size was exactly what she ordered and needed.
I will be returning the boots. I searched Overstock for boots made especially for women with wide calfs and this was listed. Bad listing on Overstock.
The boot is cute and is exactly as pictured. The only problem is that the calve opening is too big for my tiny leg but I still decided to keep them. I like the fact that it is a jet black boot not faded in anyway. I do feel like the material could be more thick. I have another pair that I've owned for three years, they were $10 cheaper but much thicker. Anyway, out of the boots I've seen in person, I like these the best. Plus they are super comfortable. I ordered them in my usual boot size of 7.5 and they fit fine. A 1/2 size bigger would be better for those who wear thicker socks. One other comment is that I wore them in the rain and snow this weekend and they still look brand new. That was without waterproofing them which I have done now. I would definitely recommend them.
I was searching for a nice pair of casual boots, and I'm (mostly) satisfied with these. True to size, but the calf opening area is substantially too wide for my calves. I suppose it comes from the fact I have size 10 feet and very skinny legs, but wearing these with leggings looks kinda silly on me. With jeans tucked in, they are fine, though. Note that the footbed is not the most cushy, so you may want to buy inserts if you are going to be on your feet for a long time.
I have had my eye on these boots since last fall. I loved them then, but was worried about the reviews regarding poor quality. There are many more reviews this year (mostly positive), so I decided to order them. I am reviewing them on appearance and fit only. I will not be able to wear them for a couple months until the weather cools off, but wanted to go ahead and write a review for those that are on the fence. The boot looks GREAT!!! Though the material is thin, it does not look cheap (unless you have really high end taste?), they are well made and just super cute! They do have a rounded toe, but it doesn't look wide. They are comfortable, and jeans and leggins fit down them easily. I do not have a big calf so there is plenty of room. The rubber sole is thin, so no, I would not wear them in the snow or rain. But is that the purpose anyone would buy these shoes? They are stylish and look great on, and are more than worth the price!
I am very happy with this boot. I have calves approx 17" around and the 8.5W boot felt a bit snug when zipped but is actually very comfortable to wear. The foot is very roomy but I could wear thicker socks for warmth so I like that. The zipper goes all the way down to the base of the boot making it easy to put on. This pair of boots was of better quality than I expected, for the price.
I just got these and tried them on and walked around in them for a while. They are comfortable and very stylish! So cute with skinny jeans! I got the black color and the buckles are a dark gray. I bought a size 9, which is what I wear in all shoe sizes and they fit just like they should. I know some reviews have mentioned things breaking on their boots. I noticed that the zippers on mine are a little tough to zip & unzip, so I'm taking extra care with them so they don't break. These boots are so cute that I'm going to buy the brown pair next.
These boots are amazing!!! I purchased the black. And my regular size. They fit true to size. The buckles are sturdy. The boot is well made. Thanks!
