Sam Edelman 'Loren' Boot
Shaft was too high
I really liked these boots but the shaft height was too high for me. I'm only 4'10.5" though. The leather was super soft and the quality was really good. I would have kept it for sure if the shaft was 1-2" shorter. They were very comfortable too! It does have a western look but it's not super strong.
These are great boots! I got the burgundy color and it goes with everything. I like how they come up a little higher on the calf, they hit me right under the knee. The heel is a good height, too--tall enough to give a little boost, but not too tall as to be difficult to walk in. In fact, these are some of the comfiest boots I have. I have VERY slender calves and honestly, these could be a little tighter, but compared with all the other boots out there, they are pretty close to perfect. I think another reviewer commented upon the leather being cheap--I completely disagree. The leather is very soft and supple and the lining of these boots is very nice. I also ordered a pair of Tory Burch boots, but am returning those and keeping these!
Beautiful boot but I'm returning iit
This is a gorgeous boot and is also very comfortable. The problem is that the shaft is so narrow that only noodle legged women can wear these boots. I have slim calves and they fit great if I wanted to wear them with dresses or leggings. However; I bought them to wear with jeans and I could barely get them zipped with skinny jeans on. The leather is buttery soft, so the fabric of the jeans actually showed.
So, if you want to wear these boots with a dress or leggings, so ahead and get them as long as you have slim legs.
Great everyday boot
You could wear these boots anywhere. The saddle color is a medium caramel, so looks great with black, navy, brown, or any color.
The calf size is pretty average...for a normal weight person my calves are definitely larger than average, but after wearing these for a day or two the shaft is stretching out a bit and I can easily fit thick leggings (not sure about jeans yet). Highly recommend!
