While these boots do come in brown, the pair being sold here are black and they are fabulous. These are the most comfortable wedges I've ever owned. It's almost like wearing sneakers. And the added height is always welcome, especially when it's this comfortable.
I am usually a size 8.5 or 9 in boots and the 9 fits slightly roomy, but nothing some thick socks can't handle. The 8.5 was sold out so I didn't try them, but they might have worked just as well. I've been getting compliments on these boots since I first put them on. I got this pair at the sale price, but I have no reservations about buying another (brown!) pair at full price.
These are Sorel, so you know that in addition to being well made and comfortable, they can handle a tough winter with no problem. If you're on the fence, go for it. This is a really great pair of boots that will be great for many years.

Stylish, Comfortable, My Go To Boots!
I had been looking at these boots almost weekly online and discovered them as a return in my local Anthro. Imagine my excitement spotting them. I tried them on and was amazed! The fit was perfect and will be even better with all the amazing winter socks I can pair them with. These boots were my go to item this past weekend. I styled them for a 2.5 hour drive with my jean jumper and parka, after which I changed them later that evening with a pencil skirt and a nice moto jacket. I even wore them with tights and a black knit dress. Like I said, these boots are definitely going to be a staple in my outfitting this winter. Oh, did I mention the comfort! Now, I must also admit these boots aren't the color shown, but rather more black. That wasn't enough to make me change my mind. I'm so excited about these babies. My first intro to Sorel and boy am I satisfied.

best boots i've ever owned
I absolutely adore these boots. they are incredibly comfortable and super stylish while also being waterproof and warm. I have worn these when I've been on my feet all day, and they feel fantastic. you will not regret buying these! the quality is fantastic. I am considering a second pair in another color. amazing! :)
After reading a few reviews, I decided to still order my usual 7.5 size. I do not find them to be too tight on the calf at all! You would not want these to fit looser, or you will look bulky. I am 5'2 and the front flap is about 4 inches above my knee, and the back strap hits at the back on my knee. The back of the boot is cut a little high , but should not be an issue for anyone over 5'3. I was easily able to wear skinny jeans under these! They do bunch up a tiny bit, but nothing unexpected for the wider fit on the top. They are very comfortable and easy to walk in. I love that there is a full zip instead of the pull-on style where your jeans get bunched up inside. My only complaint is that when I received them, there were worn areas on the suede already. I think they had been worn and returned.

Dolce Vita Myer Boots
These boots are perfect!! I have them in grey and black suede and wear them with dresses, skirts and over jeans and leggings. The fit is true to size and easily broken in, in one afternoon. I wear hose with my boots, not socks, but in colder climates I can see where someone would possibly want to order up a size (or half size) in order to wear socks. Great buy, especially on sale. Highly recommend.

Love love. Love
For me ran true to size, I have skinny calves and they fit nicely with jeans! Highly recommend completely worth the money!
The Naya (North) boot is so beautiful, aesthetically and in feel. Unfortunately, Anthropologie did not have my size so I had to get it elsewhere. I usually wear a 9.5 wide, but I think I could fit a 9.5 regular in this boot and the leather would stretch to accommodate the ball of my foot. The heel in the wide model is too roomy. I am 5'9" and these come up to the lower-middle of my kneecap. I also have 15.5"-16" calves, and they fit just right. I can even wear jeans with them. They really look high-quality and the footbed is nicely padded.

Fun and different
Love that these are a grayish silver color, also the two tone of suede and shiny leather. I ordered them during a sale in August and they had a back order issue. Finally received them yesterday and wearing them for the first time today with an anthro dress and jean jacket. A little narrow in the front foot bed but not in the back. Hoping they will break in a bit.

I am still hunting for the perfect boot. I have larger calves, so these didn't fit, but I'm not wide enough to purchase wide-calf boots because they are just so big. Regardless, these are so cute in person. Great quality. Length fit as expected, maybe a little tight, but it was hard to tell with my calves.
I scored these booties in my local store's sale section and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I've already worn them twice, once with skinny ankle jeans and once with a dress, so I think that says how versatile they can be.
I felt they were very TTS length wise, but a little wide in the mid-foot area. I don't have narrow feet (the other reviewer does and I'm puzzled as to why they fit us both so well, considering my feet are kinda wide and flat, so your mileage may vary.)
Other good points about these is that the lace is prettier in person (a bit more sheer, too, than the pictures here) and the heel height is comfy to walk in. They are made particularly well for the price point. I also like that the lace section isn't scratchy or stiff against my bare foot. Nothing hurts or scratches on this shoe.
Bottom line: If you can get your hands on these, you'll likely have a comfy fitting adorable bootie that has an unexpected look and is highly versatile.

Wow .. really nice ... great padding in the toe so will be able to wear even though is a high heal. picture does not show how nice the lacy part of the bootie is. Looking forward to wearing these with tights now and naked for spring.

Beautiful booties. Sexy but office appropriate as well. As other reviewers stated, lace is more sheer in person. Comfortable and fit true to size.
I have been eying the boots for months, and was so surprised to find them on sale! From other reviews, I was nervous about sizing. I knew they wouldn't last long on sale, and I didn't want to miss out by ordering the wrong size. I am typically an 8.5 so I bought both 8.5 and a 9 just to be on the safe side. I just got these in today, and after trying them on I will be keeping the 8.5. I tried these on with medium- thick socks, and although they were a little tight, they weren't uncomfortable. Sizing up was too loose, and didn't give as much support as I would have liked. I bought both black and brown, and they are gorgeous!

Fufilling my wedge bootie dreams
These booties are AMAZING. Absolutely obsessed with the look of them, very classy, cute with a touch of sexy. The color on the beige is a little darker than in the picture shown, but still very cute. Also they run about a half size too small. I am typically a 7.5 so I ordered an 8 based on a previous reviewer and so glad I did! The 8 was perfect.

I loved these wedges but they run small. I typically wear a 9.5 so I ordered a 10 and they were still too small. Im hoping they come out in a size 10.5 or 11
Really lovely pair of boots- they look very similar to the image. If anything differs, it would be the color of the heel.. appears a bit more reddish purple in real life than in the picture would suggest.
I usually don't wear shoes with a very tall heel, so perhaps that's partly the reason (could also be because I have wider feet), but these shoes were VERY uncomfortable the first day I wore them. So painful that I was about to try to return them the next day. But I decided to stick it out, and have worn them a few more times since then. While they still are not comfortable by any means, they're bearable... and worth it considering how cute and flattering they are. So if you're used to wearing heels or have narrower feet, then I'd say definitely go for it! But if either of those two statements don't apply to you, then you've been warned :)
But I'm still happy with my purchase and hope that with more wear they will become less uncomfortable!

The ad is not truthful about heel height. It is a 3 3/4" heel.
The fit is snug, so maybe order a size up, especially if you plan on wearing more than a stocking or tights with these boots.

Beautiful in real life, but I should have listened to the prior review and sized up. My normal 9.5 was a no-go; hoping the size 10s I exchanged for will work.
First, let me start with how much I love these boots in general. I had a previous pair of boots in the cognac color and was in search for a replacement. Once I saw these, I knew that these were IT. They are of superb quality. The entire days I have worn them have been nothing short of comfortable. The only con to these boots is the length of the boot from the sole to the knee. I'm about 5'6, and when I sit down the boots cover about half my knee which is not a problem, but I'm concerned about the back of the boots. Because the boot goes so high when I sit down, the back of each boot is starting to become misshapen: the flaps above the zipper are starting to flip out. I would be cautious if you are shorter than 5'7, but overall, I am VERY happy with my purchase.

These are beautiful riding boots. The quality, grain, and color of the leather is wonderful; the design is classic yet modern; and they are comfortable, no breaking in required. I wear a size 8 across almost all American shoe brands - Stuart Weitzman, Vans, Tory Burch, etc. - and the 8's in these fit perfectly.
