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)
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.
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.
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.
