Rated 2 out of 5 by MainlineGirl Big let down
I've been buying jcrew shoes for years and I hate to say it- I'm very disappointed. I never write reviews but it's tough to find a sleek street riding boot and I thought these would be winners. The color is beautiful, however the leather is very stiff and the fit is so bulky. The boot is way too loose around the ankle and leg, they fit like wellies. I think jcrew should go back to their previous classic shoe designs and quality. I will be returning them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BootAddict Bought Two Pairs
I ordered a pair in black, and when they came I absolutely fell in love with them. They were sleek and classic, no unnecessary buckles or straps anywhere to make it look too "biker"ish or bulky.With the extended sizing, it was perfect for my calves and a pair of skinny jeans tucked in. An improvement would be if the leather was a smidge thicker or better quality. The boots state that they are made in Romania,but I would not have been surprised if itChina, seemed a bit thin for the price. I did love the style so much that I really wanted a pair in Kindling.
Unfortunately, the boots in the Kindling color have a hard time masking the poor quality of the leather. I still love the cut and style of the boot, but it just seems like a factory quality boot. It kind of reminds me of the "sprayed" leatherette boots that other factory/outlet stores carry not something from J.Crew at this price.
End result LOVE the boot style(enough to keep both pairs), just wish the quality of leather was better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gina Beautiful leather boots
I bought these boots in the classic tan leather... they are beautiful. The color is perfect and the leather is very nice. I love the simplicity of the boot as well. However, they are not perfect. They come up really high to just about mid-knee... which is a bit awkward. For reference, I am 5'5". I have 15" calves so I bought the extended calf version. They fit great over skinny jeans and socks. But because they come up so high, there is space around the boot and my knee. Unfortunately I will be returning mine. :(

As much as I loved these boots in the store, once I received them in the mail I was quite disappointed. Within the first 30 minutes of wearing them, I had the worst blisters all over my feet. I thought it was just because they needed to be broken in, but unfortunately after a few times wearing them I am still almost in tears while walking in them. The zipper also seems to snag and has caught on my boots several times causing nicks in the leather. I wish I could have saved money and shopped around before buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kmh170 These boots are everything.
I bought these boots in kindling and I love them dearly. This color goes with everything, and I want the other colors as well. They do run a smidge large compared to other J.Crew shoes, but not enough to size down. You will be able to--and want to--wear them with the J.Crew camp socks in the winter. Thicker socks in the summer aren't as fun, but needed.
