Rated 4 out of 5Â by Elizzy Love! But...
I ordered the charcoal, they're really lovely! Soft and comfortable too. I wear a 10.5 went with an 11, they fit perfectly. Would have rated these five stars except they arrived with a broken clasp and some wear already. It was obvious they had been previously worn and returned. Instead of fixing the clasp, FP sent them anyways. Given the price, its really irritating to get second hand, broken shoes. But... I decided to fix the clasp and keep them.

I am a curvy lady and normally I have toruble finding boots that fit my claf well. I was completly in love with these boots. I knew they were adjustable but I wasnt 100% sure if they would fit. but THEY DO! they fit extremly well. Suede streatches so I ended up having to make them tigher. I wear these shoes basically eveywhere I go and I get so many complements. I ordered them in the black and now I want all the colors. The price is steep but they are completly and totally worth it.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by dressyjessie Haven't bought, but will soon - plight of the poor
Sooo. I've been naively hoping these go on sale, but they havent so I'm saving up to get these.
I agree with the poster below, these look fab and if you are a shorter girl or even a taller girl and these are hitting you in a spot that isn't the best, has anyone tried scrunching them lower or untying the laces and folding the boot shaft down and then securing the flaps with the laces? I feel like this would solve the issue and I've styled my boots in the past this way just for variety to create other looks.
When I buy these I will upload photos.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Shoeaholic These boots are AWESOME!
I have been resisting buying these boots, but my boot craving got the better of me and I am SO glad it did. These boots fit and feel WONDERFUL. Yes, they go over my knee - they are supposed to. However, they are very comfortable. The suede is very supple and the boot forms so well to my leg that isn't annoying at all each time you bend your knee.
However, what rocket scientist designed the lace?? The lace is very very very long and the holes on the lace for the clasp are at the very very end of this long lace - in other words, there is no practical way to make the closure work like in the picture. ( FP - who is doing your design/production/fit QC these days?? ) Had to give it a 4-star rating for this reason. These boots aren't inexpensive and the buyer shouldn't have to cut the laces and punch holes in a pair of expensive boots!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Also, if you have wide calves, this boot probably won't work for you. I have slender calves and these boots form perfectly to my slender calves - no sagging!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ProShopper3181 The Reviews
I have been admiring the Johnny Tall Boot for some time. As I read reviews there are several others who also admired before purchase. I'm puzzled though. As I read the reviews it seems that some people are complaining about the shaft of the boot being to high and hitting the knee. And scoring based mostly on this predicament. I mean you do realize that these boots are called "knee boots" right? They are supposed to be on the knee a little above or a little below your knee. Not going to fit everyone the same. And if you are 4'6" or 5' the boots are not going to fit you very well. Come on, evidently if your old enough to buy these you already know what works and what does not. At least you would hope you have enough common sense not to purchase something like a knee boot that is made for "average" height. If you are 7' or 8' tall the same applies. I had to write something because I don't believe it's the products, Free People, or the manufacturers fault at all and the scoring for the boot should might possible be higher. I do not think its fair to others who look at the star rating not knowing how the rating is affected unless most have been read. Not all of us have that kind of time. Scoring should not be considered based on this dilemma that shorter or taller people may have with knee, thigh and even ankle boots. One more issue is color. It is common sense to know that color on your screen may not be the same as the color in person. If you do not know this please understand that this is the case. It is typical and you may be disappointed if color variations are slightly off. However, this is not something that should be considered when rating the item. It is however, a good idea to mention that the color is lighter or darker, etc. But, I do not think it should be considered in the rating. Unless the color is extremely different. After all it's just common sense to know before you purchase that there will be color variations. It 's important for me to say I am not an employee and I am not affiliated with this company in any way other then a consumer who likes Free People products. This is just a few statements I thought should be said. Maybe we all should stick to rating the quality, fit and unexpected issues. Like the laces break easy, the heel is cheap, sizing is difficult and or they look cheap. Or just what I expected, beautiful, size is perfect, and or extremely comfortable,. Now that's good rating. Thanks for reading my commentary
Rated 3 out of 5Â by sara79 not for short girls :-(
Love the style, the heels, the laces on these boots, but it's only for extremely tall girls. Only wish they could shorten the shaft hight to 13 - 13 1/2 inches.
Then these babies will be gone. Sold out!
These will match everything in my wardrobe, but I'm only 5 feet, so the shaft hight of these boots will make me look ridiculous. So i'll just wait till they come out with shorter shaft.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by SouthernBelleHippie Looks great
I love my boots. They are a little fussy to get on and get fitted to the leg. When I put my foot in the boot it always wants to run away out the side zipper. But a small price to pay for a great looking boot and comfortable too.

After wrestling for a few days with my thoughts on these, I've finally brought myself to write a review. They are, it has to be said, pretty extraordinary. Now, first things first-Fit. As a true 7.5 I had the chance to try these on in a 7 before ordering them. They were a little snug, and I considered that they would stretch, but in the end I went with the 8. I have room but not enough that I constantly notice it. Another thing is the height. I have to say, it's probably my biggest issue with this boot. I am on the taller side- 5'7", and I have long legs. These boots cut directly across my kneecap, which is to me, the most annoying thing about them. I really wish they just stopped under the knee. You definitely do have to mess with the laces a bit, and as other reviewers mentioned, they are made up of smaller pieces of leather glued together; still scratching my head over why that is. Once I got mine tightened the way I wanted to wear them, I needed extra holes punched in the lace and had way too much excess at the buckle, so I cut that off. I will say that once they are tightened all the way up, they stay up reasonably well throughout a full day of wearing them. I got them in tan and the color is gorgeous in person. If you walk a lot or live in a colder climate I would recommend getting new soles put on before wearing. I may have mine resoled if I wear them out quickly. Also, I would treat the suede with a protectant before wearing them. I did, and have no complaints. So all in all, after a lot of waiting, and a lot of work put in on these, I feel like I'm getting plenty out of them. They go with everything and are just so unique.
