Women's Chalet Midshaft Pull-on Boots
Comfortable and warm but not good sole tread
I had a hard time deciding on the color. Ultimately choose the light bark and it goes well with many clothing colors. They are warm enough for So. California but feel best when worn with socks unlike the Ugg boots.
However because these are meant for wintery days I dropped the rating to 3.5 sails. The main concern is that there is no traction on the sole. Brought them to DC and wore on snowy wet day and felt they were dangerous because I slid many times on the wet or slick surface. How those in the mid-west or east coast find them? They NEED better tread on the bottom.

Hard to get on
Pretty shoe. Comfy. But if you are pleasantly plump or have bad knees it will be a serious trick to get these on unless you want to try on a sofa or bed.

Cute and comfy
I wear size 7 regular, so that's what I bought. I struggled terribly to get my feet into these boots. At one point I was sure I was going to return them but once I managed to get my feet in, the boots were actually quite warm, comfortable, and looked very cute, I suppose with regular wear, it will stretch (I hope). Overall, I'm not terribly disappointed.

I live in Texas so I'll have to wait a little longer than most to wear my boots as our wintery weather is up and down right now. I can hardly wait to wear them. I ordered the black and they are super cute! I took the advice from others in the reviews and ordered the same size I usually wear without adding a 1/2 size. The fit was perfect. I usually wear a 9 and ordered just that. There will also be plenty of room should I decide to wear my boots with thick socks. They are incredibly comfortable and I think will be perfectly warm. I am as happy as can be with my purchase.

Good looking, great quality boots
I just pulled these out for a second winter season and wore them yesterday. I'd forgotten how much I loved them last year. I wore them all the time and I will again this year. Comfortable, stylish and fun; they still look brand new. They fit perfectly on my size 10 feet (always a 10 reg in any brand any where), but I can see how some would find them uncomfortably snug if your foot is on the wider side. You don't need thick socks with these; they'll likely be tight if you wear anything heavier than a cotton sports sock. Great boots.

I just got these in the mail. I ordered a half size up since that's all that was available. They'll be fine with a good pair of socks. I'm glad they came in wide although they're still not super wide. Also, I like that they fit my (big) calves. These boots are very comfy. I don't want to take them off!

Fit is perfect
I have a hard time finding boots that fit my feet and feel good but these boots do both. The wide boot fit fine and the fit is true to size and is very comfitable. Wish I had ordered before the other colors sold out but will look for them in the future.

I love boots and always looking for a pr that fits all my needs of a good fit since I have narrow feet and stylish. These fit both needs and they are warm and comfy too! I started with a black pr and loved wearing them with skirts or leggings.These are more casual looking but can still be worn with something a little more dressy in black I think. I wore them a lot over the course of about 2 mos and didn't have any problems with wear. I liked them so well I bought a second pr in brown.

Lack of adequate cushioning
These are attractive boots and the fit for me (5.5-6) was fine. My disappointment with them, though, is that there is very little cushioning (almost none) in the sole, beyond the faux fur lining. One would expect this kind of shoe to be good for walking (beyond a few feet at a time) , but with little to no cushioning in the heel area, I would not select these for that purpose.

Very hard to pull on, tight across the instep. Fine after you get it on. I think they'll stretch.
I almost gave up trying to get them on. I love the look and feel but the boot is very snug across the instep (top of foot) when pulling them on or off. Once on they fit fine and feel great. I am hoping the leather will stretch enough so they won't be so hard to get on.
