Women's Blakeley Riding Boots
These boots are my hero!
I love these boots so much that I have bought two pair—tan and black. But on Tuesday, January 28, I found a new appreciation for these boots. I live in Alabama, where boots are often purchased for fashion rather than function. Yesterday on January 28 an unexpected snowfall and below freezing temperatures combined to create a little something we're lovingly referring to as snowmageddon. (Don't laugh, northerners, or I will remind you of our amusement watching you deal with Hurricane Sandy.) People were stranded on the road, cars were abandoned, parents were separated from children. After a four-hour commute to travel what normally takes only 20 minutes, I had to abandon my car about a mile from my house and walk home. These boots were a trooper. They keep my feet warm and dry as I trudged over the last hill to get home. I never slipped or fell. And they still look fantastic. I LOVE THESE BOOTS!

I LOVE these boots!
These boots fit so nicely, they are soooo comfortable, I have had them on my feet all day at work and didn't need to take them off at the end of the day, and actually went out dancing one Friday nite after work. I ordered the caramel color and am thinking about getting the dark brown too, they are cute the leather is top notch, I can't thing of one thing I don't like about them, they are true to size, I wear a 9 and after ordering and returning boots from other makers, finding these has made me very happy, the fit, the style, these boot have everything ! I will be looking at more Blakeley boots in the future.

The boots run large. I ordered these boots in my regular shoe size + the wide calf and had to return them as my foot was swimming in the boot. The calf is wide, but so is the shoe which was a little confusing to me at first because I was expecting the shoe portion to fit normally and for the boot to just have a slightly wider calf . In these boots the added wide width is for the entire boot. In my case I really just needed the calf a little wider so I could have extra room to tuck my pants in. In the end Lands End handled the return as expected and sent what I requested quickly. I received one size smaller boot that are still a little too large for my foot, but that I find comfortable enough that I can wear easily for an entire day. I would recommend these boots, and receive compliments every time I wear them. If you have a very wide ankle and foot you may want to order your regular size to see if the width is what is needed, but if you have a regular sized ankle/foot but need a wider calf you might want to try ordering at least a 1/2 size down from your regular size to start. **just one persons experience.

Classic, stylish, well made!
I have admired these boots for some time, however, they were out of my "self imposed" price range. Once they went on sale, with the added 40% off, I couldn't pass it up! They are beautiful; the color, the leather, the craftsmanship! I was expecting to have a break-in period. Not so! The first day I wore them, I walked for a few hours with absolutely no issues. It was as if they were an old pair of my favorite loafers. The only negative comment would be the size. I ordered my standard size 7.5 and there is much more room in the toe than "normal".

Great boots but I had to return
The quality and styling of these boots were just what I was looking for, but they were too tall for my leg. I also wish that LE would offer a wide foot bed with a regular calf width rather than a wide calf. I would have kept them if they weren't too tall.

I bought these a half size larger because that's what all the reviews advised. They are extremely big. Not sure if I'll reorder. Iffy on the lightest color. Just not sure if the color makes them look like they are not real leather. Baggy around ankles. Foot bed of boot not at all cushioned. Thought I would love them but, just don't know. Guess they'll go back. have to love them for the price.

These boots are a must have if you are a boot lover like I am. They are a bit roomy, but I don't mind that at all, as I always wear thicker socks with boots. But there is still a good amount of room in the toe box , even with thicker socks. The quality is very good, especially if you get them on sale. They really pull together and polish even the most casual of outfits. I have purchased two pairs, black and spice brown and am very happy with both. I planned to also purchase them in Cognac, but my size was not available. I wear them often and have received lots of "Girrrl, where did you get those boots?"
