5 stars on the exterior of this boot - tremendous quality in leather, beautiful rich color in the rust color, looks stylish and goes even with skirts (the wool lining is not soft, it is like a very thick boiled wool, with mid calf socks it is totally fine (if planning to wear bare feet, this will feel too rough and scratchy)

3 stars on the feel - I have difficult feet to fit due to plantar fascitis and it seems things don't ever fit or feel right. I have found some beloved different pairs over the years, and since they are falling apart and no longer made and my feet have grown since pregnancy, I need a quasi casual fall and winter boot I can pull on with whatever I'm wearing and do errands, groceries, and apple picking. Needs to be comfortable, look ok with outfits, and be somewhat warm, and at least water resistant. Leather and wool make a good match.

I am usually a size 8 in most boots I try on. I ordered the 8 but they were so huge and wide, my feet were walking right out of the boot. I sent those back and ordered the size 7.5. So I think they run bit large? The length of the 7.5 was appropriate. The width was quite roomy still and I was wearing medium weight wool socks to try on. I decided to keep them because they didn't instantly say no to me. But since they are $120 boots, I thought I should walk around the house with them for a couple hours to see how they would fare. The right boot was totally fine. But the left boot.....something was very wrong with the arch where the built up rolling arch part was. Within no time, my foot was aching so bad. It was like the arch was being held up too high by the arch support. I pulled the removable arches out of the boot and compared them - they were the same built up level. I pulled my $150 asics running shoe insoles out and put them into the boot. The boots felt normal with them in and comfortable. My left foot ached like it was strained for half a day even after I had stopped testing the boots out. I was going to find insoles to replace the boot insoles with, then I said to myself, why am I reconstructing a pair of $120 boots. Any another price point, maybe. So I ended up returning them. Maybe some people have better feet than I do, or can put up with some discomfort, but I'm having a hard time seeing what is so special about Chaco footbed that people rave about. While the outside of the shoe was beautiful quality and materials, the inside was largely unpadded feeling and while there was definitely a ton of arch support, that support was stiff, non springy, and I didn't my feet were cushioned at all (like my asics are or other boots I have worn in the past) or that I was trying on a "comfort" shoe brand like Clarks, Born, etc.

These are great winter boots! Currently negative temps and snowing here and my feet are dry and toasty. I ordered 1/2 size up and they fit perfectly with my mid weight wool socks. The arch support is really nice too. I have plantar fasciitis and these feel really good. I bought these for my trip to London in January so I’ll update with how well they held up to cold, rain and lots of walking. The ONLY thing I’m not excited about is that I have to unbuckle the strap to slip them on. Maybe the strap will stretch over time so I can slip on without unbuckling, but we will see. Certainly not a deal breaker for me.

UPDATE: I wore these around the house for a couple days before heading to London, so not entirely broken in. We walked between 5 and 10 miles every day and I didn’t have any problems! My feet felt great the entire time. They kept my feet warm and dry too. I’m so happy with this purchase, I would highly recommend these boots.

I absolutely love these boots in every color. The only thing I’d say I don’t love is it’s kinda difficult to get my foot in initially. However, with that said they are still 5 stars for me because once you’re in they’re SO comfortable. Non slip on the roads and trails and super cute. If you’re on the fence about these BUY THEM. They’re amazing. Especially if you have sore feet or ankle/heel issues.

These are actually the sixth pair I have bought. 2 for my wife and 4 for me. I guess I like them well enough. I am an old man and these "women's" boots feel great and I have not yet scuffed the toes or twisted my ankle. The soles are tough and grippy, not wearing very much after walking about 1000 kilometers total. I prefer black but these brown ones were the only size 11 left.
Wore them in Viet Nam for 13 weeks and they are not too hot. Got totally drenched in one horrendous downpour and they were dry enough the next day. At first I thought they were too big but now I like the sloppy feel of extra room for my toes. Also when you sit in an airplane for 14 hours you can still put these back on. I bought 2 pairs size 10.5 and 2 pairs size 11 because when these are gone there ain't no more. Get them while you can.
They are comfortable.

I really, really wanted to love these boots. I could not get them on initially which was so frustrating as I was so excited to try them on. In order to get my foot inside the boot, I had to unbuckle, which is not an easy process either. If left buckled, my foot would only make it halfway into the shoe. I tried leaving them on the loosest hole and still couldn’t do it. My suggestion to Chaco, add a loop on the top to pull the boot on? It’s impossible otherwise. I wouldn’t mind dealing with this but unfortunately they are not easy to buckle/unbuckle and was hoping for a boot that I could slip on. I am normally a size 6, but ordered a 6.5 per other reviews. Once my foot was inside, it was a snug fit with a high feeling arch. I think that would’ve been comfortable enough boots.

The shoes themselves are stylish. I do wish they were a little higher but that’s a minor detail, only preference based on how they looked with jeans.

I own a pair of Chaco sandals and absolutely love them. Have worn for 3 summers now. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to shop for another brand this time around and return these.
