Rated 4 out of 5 by Rebecki Gorgeous with a couple caveats
I love these boots! They are casual without being sloppy. The suede is beautiful and the quality is apparent from the stitching and attention to detail. That being said, the footbed is long. I am normally an 8.5-9 and I got 9s, and I do feel lots of heel slippage when I walk. This may change as the leather adjusts to my feet. Also, the shaft fits fine but the top of the boot is very snug around my calves. Normally I wear regular-calf tall boots but I struggled and couldn't quite pull them up ALL the way. They are a bit slouchy because of that, but I'm ok with the look as that's what I was kind of going for. Again this may change after the leather adjusts. They do bunch in the ankles, but that is part of the design with most pull-on boots. They are gorgeous and can be very versatile. I plan to wear them with dresses and skinny jeans or leggings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KittyKitty Great boots especially on sale!
These boots are beautiful, casual and comfortable. I ordered my regular J.Crew size (8.5) and they are perfect. No slipping, pinching, rubbing from day one. The reason for the missing star is simply because I feel the calf could be a tad larger. They fit me just right but if I wanted to wear boot socks they would be too tight. I could easily see someone with a normally average calf being tight like the other review said. I also feel the suede may scuff a little. I'm ok with this as I think it will make the beautiful brown suede look more vintage, but I could see others being disappointed. If these go on even more of a sale I might purchase the black as well!

Rated 2 out of 5 by daisy Are they suede or leather?
Ordered these from the store, thinking they are "buttery leather" with suede panels, as stated in the description. This made me assume there is more leather than suede. Yes, the description also says suede upper as well, but the detailed description, which comes first, describes them as being in "buttery leather." with suede panels. The leather is in the lining. That doesn't count. Back they go. How annoying and a waste of my time. The quality is lacking as well, as the suede is on the cheaper side, and the leather lining, isn't so buttery soft.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shelby so disappointed
i am consistently a 10 in jcrew footwear. these are very large in the ankle and extremely tight in the upper calf. (my calves are not large). while they looked beautiful in the box, they went back. yes, that deal is too good to be true.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tracey Perfect for women with narrow calves
When I read the reviews saying that many found these boots too tight in the calves, I knew they would be perfect for me. I have disproportionately small calves, and most "regular calf" boots look ridiculous on me. I can still slide a whole hand in these when worn over bare legs or tights, but they should be perfect over jeans. The ankle area is a bit wide, but I think that is necessary since these are a slip-on boot with no zipper.
Ladies with normal sized calves might have better luck with an extended calf version.
