Women's Stanton High Heel Tall Pull-on Boots
Not quite sleek but I still like it...
This is a pair of simple yet elegant boot. The leather is buttery and black is good with anything. The heel doesn't feel uncomfortable. I know I won't wear this pair if I need to do a lot of walking though... The ankle area is somehow loose and causes the boot to wrinkle in the area. It probably won't wrinkle as much if my calf is slimmer. I ordered 1/2 size bigger because of the shaft opening. It is still a tight fit for me. In order to fit my frame(5'2"), I have it shorten 1 1/2 inch. Despite all that, I still like this pair. With the sale price, it is a steal. I know I won't pay anything more with the additional hassle that I have to go through. All in all, this is pair of nice looking boot with top quality leather and craftsmanship. You just need to be at least 5'4" and slim to pull the look.

Unflattering fit: not sleek!
I had to come back and make sure I was reviewing the same product as the other reviewers. I cannot understand how one would have a hard time getting these on and off: they are HUGE in the ankle and calf, actually, the ankle area looks the same size as the top of the calf--Very unflattering, it makes my legs look elephant-like. Too bad. The sale price is really good for leather boots, the leather is nice quality, but pretty thin. I think they are half size too large--I usually wear between 7.5 and 8, and these 8s feel like 8.5 And, they didn't even ship in a boot box, but just in plastic sleeves...maybe because they are on sale? I've posted pics for visual--one with these not-sleek boots and the other with short boots, showing just how big these boots can make your legs look! These are going back.

These boots are so beautiful and buttery soft. They fit me like a glove with thin socks or tights, and are super comfortable. I will say, though, they are difficult to get off. Also I'm petite and these boots hit me just below the knee. They would have been better if they had been another inch or so shorter. All in all, though, I keep coming back to these boots to wear each day.

Really Classy Boot, Excellent Sale Price!
I have high arches/insteps and pretty wide feet. I heeded the reviews and ordered half a size up in this boot since it is a pull on and I know how my feet are, got an 8. They fit me well, they have a classic riding boot look but the stacked heel is very up to date (and solid enough to walk easily). Got the black and may go back for the brown since I have been looking for a tall boot for a while. My friend, who has slim legs and average feet and wears an 8 tried on my boot and said the 8 fit her fine. One note, I did add in little generic footpads for comfort, and that greatly improves the cushioning.

Great boots! Great Price!
The leather of these boots is a great quality and they look great with skinny jeans and with dresses and skirts. They are not a slim/sleek fit ( more like a riding boot with a heel), but if you are okay with this they are great ! The heel is quite high, but since it is a thick, stacked heel they are quite comfortable. I wear them to work all day without any problem. I got the black pair on sale and am considering buying them in brown as well. For the price, these are a real find!

These boots are gorgeous. I got them in brown and love them. The fit, the leather, the look are all top notch. I am so happy I got these. There is no excessive slouching like some said. These are not tight fitting boots and if they were, without a zipper they would not slip on and off the way they do. they look very expensive and the toe shape is perfect. I am thrilled with this purchase.

mostly good - slightly less comfortable than expected
How could I resist the cost when Landsend was also offering an additional 30% off the sale price. I got the brown version as I already have black boots. The colour and style are great. I don't have any problem with the height of the heel as it is also quite a broad heel. I have always had problems finding boots to fit over my calf but these ones did slip on over tights easily and I can wear them with skinny jeans. I can't wear thick socks with them because I have problems getting my feet into the heel due to the boot having no zip. I did notice the the foot part of the boot was quite hard and I haven't broken them in yet so that will be something to watch. For the price they were worth it for sure - at full price they wouldn't be worth it.

I knew this boots were too good to be true at such a low price. I had such high expectations, and they just fell short. My calf is not what I would call large or wide...however, once the boots were on I could not pull them up to where they are supposed to be -- they are THAT tight! I tried everything, and they just stayed scrunched up at the bottom. There was no way of making them work. This boot would work much better with a zipper...lesson learned.

Beautiful boot...very high heel!
This boot was beautiful. Nice soft leather, quality construction. I was so excited when it arrived. Unfortunately, the heel is higher than I'd thought it was and they will need to go back. I just think a lower heeled boot would be more comfortable. If you can handle heels though, go for it! You probably won't regret it!

excellent quality and gorgeous boot
The reviews were mixed on these but I could not resist the price and look. I ordered brown and my regular size....sent them back because they were a bit small...I have wider feet and sometimes need half size or size up...depending on shoes...these are snug on my calves but I have large muscular calves...not huge, but often have trouble finding boots to fit....I can stretch the one that is snug and it will fit great....these are beautuful leather, sturdy and awesome soles. I love the color and feel and cannot wait to wear them around!
