Â by apolysis my absolute dream boot!
i'd been searching for the perfect pair of casual beautiful yet rugged tall brown boots to go romping around the forest in - these are it!
i bought the "black" which is the lighter brown colour with black laces. i'm glad i decided to go lighter, so much detail in them. they are true to size, the leather is flexible and the fit is comfortable :) very very well made boots, so worth the money. *note: i'm 5'4", they come to mid-knee on me*
Rated 4 out of 5Â by cakes cleary tall boat shoe
I am a true 7 .5 size shoe with most shoe sizes. The shoes that run small I usually buy a size 8. i ordered a 7.5, and the actual size of the boat shoe itself runs 1/2 size larger in a comfortable way. But, the lace up part of the boot was a bit tight when i first tried them on. When i received the boots boxed they were laced all the way to the top of the shoe. I tried them on and they were extremely fitted (5ft 118 lb.) and up to the middle of my knees, i did not think i was going to be able to wear any jeans under the boots and I was immediately going to return them. I came to the website and looked at the shoes and saw that the model has the shoes unlaced to about halfway of to the height of the shoe. So, i unlaced them and made more room for my calves and they fit better than before. I am still not sure i will be able to use actual jeans under the boots, maybe jeggings and especially tights, but not regular jeans with tall socks like the model on the site. Therefore, if you have skinny calves, these boots will be easily accessible to wear with jeans. I highly recommend trying them on for regular to muscular sized calves.
Just if you're wondering: the leather is the kind that is scratched easily.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by sabs not quite what you expect...
Overall the color is spot on once you receive it.
The shaft of the boot is REALLY small. I did try to loosen the laces, but this was not enough to improve the fit. I am a size 8 to 8.5 and I ordered a 9 as I like my boots a bit loose. I am average hight and average weight (and my calves are not usually an issue with boots), but if you have anything but very slim legs these may not fit just right. I had to return them. But I always find a replacement syle as Free People has the best quirky shoes!!!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by luvcharm texture not consistent and shoe very narrow
like yayners, the texture of one side is different than the other. another thing is the shoe is very narrow i had to size up to give my toes some breathing space. any shoes for wide people here? other than that i think this is better than jc's joe lace up boots. the leather is better (color doesn't bleed on you like jc's# and the height is better for short people. this is my alternative to jc's which i had to return because the lining was crooked #thanks china!).
Rated 5 out of 5Â by CurlyLocks Can't get enough of these boots!
I bought these boots in brown, size 8 (which is what I usually wear). They fit so well, and are so comfortable! Because they are leather, it took some time for me to break them in, and soften the stiffness. After about a week of breaking them in, they are perfect! I am pretty short 5'3", so they come up a little higher than in the picture, but it hasn't bothered me. I also have athletic calves so I can't lace them all the way up, but it seems to fit the style of the boot. They still look cute, and the more I break them in the more I can lace them up. So I am still completely in love with them! Very worth the money!

Â by yayners Mine were mismatched.
I love these boots and was so happy to snag the last pair of 8.5's that were up here in the darker brown color. But when the boots arrived, the left and right were two totally different leathers, different finish. One was very mottled and distressed and cracked and the other was flat and smooth (a little less so in the picture, because I spent a lot of time "beating it up" to distress it myself). Like two different pairs had been mismatched.
I needed to keep them for a trip and since they aren't in stock I can't exchange them, so they are currently at the shoe repair shop, where they are going to try to darken both of them to hopefully match better. Thanks for nothing, Free People.
The boots get 5 stars, but I got screwed. Boo.

I spent a lot of time thinking about getting these because of the calf size issue the other reviews mentioned. I finally caved and I'm glad I did! while the fit around my (not very small) calves is snug, even with the laces as lose as possible, they're easing out every time I wear them and they're so comfortable! After a few more wears I imagine I'll be 100% happy with my purchase of these unique boots. I LOVE Bed Stu boots!!!
