I love these boots, I love the style and the colour. I like how they have the stretch material in the back which works well with my curvy calves. But what I don't like is when shoe companies have wide sizes that aren't actually wide sizes. I have wide, short feet and a high arch. My feet hurt very badly when compressed on the sides because it contributes to my plantar faciitis and it crushes my toes and side of my foot. I have dealt with many ill fitting shoes because it's difficult to find cute shoes in wide sizes. But I would assume that when I'm ordering a wide it should be at the very least, wider than my regular size shoes.
I ordered 3 pairs of LifeStide boots. I'm a true 8 1/2 W. They all fit true to size. Here is a comparison of the three. First photo from left to right is the Xandy, Xtrovert, Xripley. Second photo from left to right Xripley, Xtrovert, Xandy. I have a small calf 14 1/2 inches. The Xandy was a nice boot for the price but, it felt the largest around the calf. The knit insert in the back which you can see in the second picture, (Boot on FAR RIGHT) stretches a lot, which I didn't need. If you're not a wide calf but you're larger than a 14 1/2 inch calf, I would give this boot a try. The Xtrovert fit the most snug. You can read my review there. I feel LifeStride is very consistent in their sizing.
So happy I purchased these. They are the slimmer fit I was hoping for. Footbed has a nice cushion. I have regular sized to athletic calves and they fit well. I wear a 9 or 9.5 shoe typically and bought a 9.5, I’m glad I did they are just right.
These look exactly like the picture. I wear an 8 1/2 or 9 and ordered an 8 1/2, which were too small in the width. I don't buy wide width or wide calf shoes either. The spot where the 'leather' upper and the sweater portion meet is weird. The 'leather' is tight there, but the sweater part has a lot of give, so i feel like my calf is bulging out the back a little. The boot was fine in length, but when i was standing my feet were going over the sole if the shoe a bit. I am returning them because of the fit and the sweater portion - i like the look of the boot except for the sweater part. It just didn't go with as many outfits. The slight texture of the boot is nice with its more satin finish. I was looking for a black boot that wasn't super glossy, but also not distressed and these were close to perfect. If there was a style without the sweater part, i would get them and order a 9. However, i am skeptical that the 9 would be too long, but that's my theory.
These boots are comfortable and stylish. The color grey is beautiful. Grey boots of this color seem to be hard to find this year. I already had a pair of boots that were similar in color and I loved the way my old ones looked but they had two big problems: 1 - they had buckles that made loud noise when I walk, and 2- my feet and legs were incredibly tired and sore after wearing them all day. These Lifstride boots have neither of those problems. I was happy to find them on sale through Amazon. I am a Lifestride fan in general and have several paris of their heels for work. I purchased these in a size 7.5 which is my typical size.
The first pair I ordered came folded over in a tiny box and the inside cheap cardboard that shapes the heel was bend over cutting into my ankle. Due to amazons awesome return policy, i sent them back and ordered the exact same pair size 8.5M. I received what was marked as an 8.5 M but fit like a 8. Way too tight, so I am returning those as well. Definitely get what you pay for. I don't expect the third pair I'm ordering to be much different but we will see. I will update my review when I receive the third pair. Crossing my fingers. I just need a boot to get me through this winter. I don't expect these cheaply made boots to last longer than one season!!! Definitely not worth over $40
I have narrow feet and hard to find perfect boot. I wear this boot for more than 8 hrs and very happy with it. I normally wear size 7.5 and I bought size 8.it is perfect it has nice cushion on the bottom. It is not real leather but it looks like leather. It may feel stiff at the beginning but loosen up as you wear it more.
Great boot for the price! Nice dark charcoal gray color. When I first wore them the toe box felt a bit snug but after a few wears the fit has loosened up a bit. Side zippers do rattle a bit when you walk. Love the sweater fabric detailing at the back and the riding buckle on the back of the ankle. I haven't worn them in rain so I can't comment on how they stand up to water (i.e. if they stain or not). I normally do not buy wide in shoes but after reading the reviews decided it would be best. They definitely fit smaller than normal width wise. Would buy again.
Reasonable value for the buck. Seem to be made with hard plastic inside the boot that hold the shaft upright. Probably couldn't wear for extended periods of walking. OK for sitting around at the office.
Came in great packaging. Well-made item, sturdy. Just not what I was wanting... Returned without any issue and rec'd refund promptly.
