Rated 5 out of 5Â by luvmyryde My favorite black boot
I love these boots and wear them all the time. I hope they come back out in brown so I can get them. Super comfortable.

I just got these and love them. The leather is real supple and not stiff like some boots I have tried. I do see what the other reviewers saying that the width of the shaft is not as loose as it appears in the picture. It works for me, but I have thin legs. They work perfectly with a dress or skirt but it would be tuff to tuck anything in. The shoe part is comfortable to walk in.

Fantastic, the picture is very accurate in terms of the look of the boot, the leather, colour, and design detail.
The photo is not accurate when it comes to the size of the circumference of the top of the boot. The dimensions given, also aren't accurate. The boots fit me, but If I was any bigger in the calf muscle, I'd be in trouble.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by moyerles Ignore dimensions given!!
The foot of this boot felt true-to-size and comfortable, but the "opening circumference" is listed as 22 inches and it's NOWHERE NEAR that big. I assumed that the top buckle was operational, allowing the top to expand really wide, but that is not the case. They're simply a pull-on boot with more like a 14" max. opening circumference (at least in my size). I could get them pulled up, but they were tight. They look slouchy, but it's because there is an inside layer of leather and an outside layer and the two move independently of one another. That might be helpful in keeping the (overall) boot from slouching if that's what you want, but it meant there really wasn't any "give" in the leather. I had to send them back. Another problem is that the laces in the back don't serve any practical function and they're a little long. I could imagine that they'd become a pain after a while, coming untied and I wouldn't know it (since they're in the back). Mostly, though, I was ticked off that there was a 22" measurement given as an opening circumference....where did that even come from?? Thankfully FreePeople made the return very easy!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by WellClad Loose foot due to tight shaft
I'm a true 7.5, but it's loose side-wise and at the heel. Nonetheless, my toe goes right to the edge of the shoe, so an 8 would swim on me, but a 7 would kill me. The model must be an anorexic tall child because NO WAY is the shaft of the boot loose like that (with thick knee-high socks, to boot [pun intended]!!!# That said, note the following: #a# My feet are, and have always been, super delicate. Sigh. I have not been able to wear heels, even as a teen. I single-handedly keep the makers of corn pads, foam pads, and mole-skin in business. With this boot, I wear a corn pad on the side of my right little toenail, and one on my left big toenail. Reason: The leather around the toe box is VERY stiff. It's taken more than a month and it's still not broken in. #b# As for my shins and leg: I'm a size 4 pant, 28 jean, and am athletic #so, have taut muscles, 'though not bulging; some skinny jeans won't fit me). The top of the boot is so tight it can't reach my knee, although the "crumpled" look seems to be what it was designed for. Still, with it "crumpled," that adds to the "looseness" problem with the heel and sides. (In other words, if you could pull the boot up straight, the foot would fit properly). So I fixed that problem by wearing thick sox -- the kind for sports. So, with the corn pads for the stiff toe box, the thick sox to stop the "sliding" -- I'm a happy camper. I don't get THAT many compliments, but people do go out of their way to let me know I've got one hot pair of boots. I stand at work and in the beginning, these really hurt after 3 hours, but with the thicker sox and breaking in, these are becoming more comfortable. I would definitely recommend them with the caveat that it will take some adjustments and "workarounds" to make them comfortable.

I always get compliments on these boots. I wear them with EVERYTHING. A few strings came loose on the top but those are easy fixes. A great purchase!

I have been lusting after these boots for MONTHS! When they were given to me as a Christmas present in the morning, I wore them that night for the Christmas party. The leather is extremely soft and pliable from the get-go that I felt I had already broken them in. There is zero clop-clop noise when you walk which amazed me as all my other boots, both fashionable and functional, have some degree of tread sound.
I have rather thin feet with high arches so I am prone to discomfort and blisters on bony prominences - there was none of that. I even wore them long after the party was done to clean up. Dress it up or down, these boots are amazing, and they fit like a glove (true to size). Beautiful craftsmanship, comfortable and I feel fantastic wearing them. Highly recommended!
