Colour: True to the first picture, rather than the rest. It's a darker brown.
Quality: Very good craftmanship! The leather is beautiful. It's quite stiff upon arrival as with most leather shoes, but I've found that a couple of the spots that I found uncomfortably stiff at first mellowed after just one wear.
Foot: These shoes are definitely on the narrow side. I am usually a size 6.5-7 (with slightly broader feet than average) and bought a 7. That was a good decision as this size fits me well. Definitely would not want them narrower. The soles are really comfy.
Shaft: The shaft was also very narrow and I couldn't zip it up when I received it. I re-laced them to be looser so they fit right up my leg, but now the ankles are a little too loose so the inside heels rub (and leather is quite unforgiving in this respect). I'll need to relace them again, but I think I'll be able to find the right fit. It just takes patience. I've also found that as a shorter person (5"4) the tops of the boots almost hit the backs of my knees. Again, this should become less of an issue as the leather softens with use, and it doesn't bother me too much, but it does make for some awkward stair climbing at the moment.
Overall: They look amazing and I've received loads of compliments! I have confidence that my problems with them will either be fixed with a bit of fiddling, or fade as I wear them in. So I'm definitely keeping them.

These boots are the IT boots for fall/early winter...now and future! They are gorgeous rough and rugged knee high boots that are super comfy and uber chic - for the woman on the go! I wear a 7.5 in shoes and an 8 in boots to allow for thicker socks; so these are TTS. The leather is thick and sturdy yet they give..so the boots will look even better over time, be durable, and won't be stiff when you walk - I walk a lot:) If you're looking for a knee high boot with loads of character, super comfy, and chic then clearly the Cleary Tall Boatshoe is a fine choice!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by wolfiestrutt Great boots!
I've had my eye on these for ages and was so excited to see them pop up on sale! They're so cute and comfortable and look aged in a really great way. Some boots can look awkward on my thin legs, but these are super flattering. I would have given them 5 stars, but they arrived in an odd way - they were obviously a return. There was a chocolate wrapper in the box with residue still on it that had gotten on one of the boots, and the hanging tag had been ripped off and was loose in the box! I'm glad that I loved them because I'm not so sure they'd have been accepted as a return in the condition I received them in.

The second I saw these shoes I bought them. They're the only pair of boots without heels that I've seen and liked. The leather is perfectly aged. Quite stiff but that's the point. I assume they're going to mellow out and soften with time worn which I'm really looking forward to.
The ankles are a bit spacey but once again I think that's the point to them. They wouldn't look right if they were skin tight the whole way through. They're a bit tight on my calves (although I think my calves are slightly on the beefier side), but nothing fiddling around with the laces can't fix.
They seem to be very high quality.
I'm in love and you're all invited to the wedding.
I'm a 7 usually and they fit *just* right (possibly could go up half a size) although all leather stretches with wear! And I prefer my boots snug and moulded to my feet perfectly anyway.
The ones I received are closer the first picture's colouring than the subsequent ones. Possibly marginally darker but it could be the lighting. And no fuss anyway because they look ravishing either way. Definitely my new favourites! Thank you FP/BS!!

Â by emott6 Love!
Just got my boots and love them! Agree that they are a little stiff in the ankle and they have some extra room there was well. I just laced mine up pretty tight and it is better. It does feel a little funny, but the look doesn't bother me so I'm keeping mine! I'm usually a 9-9.5 and ordered a 9, they fit great!

Â by jojo83 Eh.. Weird
I ordered these boots because I heard they were tighter and narrower around the calf (my calf measures around 13' at the widest point). With skinny jeans on, the boot zipped up pretty darn snug. Here's the problem: too much room around the ankle. It's snug from the top of the boot all the way down to the top of the ankle, then it's all weird. When I flex my foot up it's slouchy and loose, and just doesn't feel right. I am a size 7.5-8 and I ordered a 7.5, which felt fine, but could have gone down a size. Aside from that, the boot comes in pretty stiff, and I got a pair that were two different shades of brown (see pic). So with everything considered, I will be returning them. Wish they could have worked, because they are nice boots for the price!
