Women's Ready-Set-Go Boots
I was shocked at the poor quality
I have ordered from Sahalie before and always been happy with my purchases. This one, not so much. I thought these boots would be a great, lightweight, slim-fitting option for my thin calves. After looking at them for several seasons and reading good reviews I finally ordered - at full price - and when they arrived, I could not believe the low quality of the materials. It's hard to describe - I have socks that are more substantial than the polyester material the boot shaft is made from. The shoe part was stiff, with what felt like cardboard making up the bulk of it - cheap and uncomfortable. The sole was cheap, hard plastic. And the product had an overwhelming chemical odor, like acetone - I didn't think that would ever go away. I would give 0 stars, if that were possible. Returned.

Ready Set Slouch Boots
I loved the suede like fabric and green color, but the boots would not stay up on my 14.5 inch calves. I wanted the look shown with skirts and leggings, but even after sizing down the boot top was floppy and not sleek on the leg as pictured. If this boot was made with real suede or a man made material that would stay up and fit the leg it would work. If the boot had a rubber sole and a little give and support for the foot I would pay much more for it. Too bad it had to go back.

Bring Back the Original Version!
I bought two pairs of these boots (black and brown) four years ago and have really enjoyed them. They are warm, comfortable, stylish, and so easy to pull on and off. When my black boots wore out last month, I immediately placed an order for a new pair. Alas, while the uppers are the same fit and fabric, the sole is made of very hard plastic (not the soft, cushiony rubber of the original version). I wouldn't mind so much, except that they leave difficult-to-remove black scuff marks all over my linoleum kitchen floor. Please, Sahalie, bring back the rubber soles!

CUTE DESIGN CHEAP MATERIAL
I love the design of these boots, but was very dissapointed with the quality and fit. I am a true size 6, but sometimes get a 6.5 in order to put wool insoles in. They actually hurt my foot as the toe box is hard top and bottom and something was pinching at the side. They have some padding in the heel but not the ball of the foot. The soles are not cushy rubber,but hard black plastic. I tried to put insoles in, that actually made them more comfortable, but then they were too tight. Toyed with the idea of exchanging them for a 6.5 wide in order to accomodate padding and wool insoles, but decided they were not worth the money as they are a microfiber and not even real suede. Would consider paying the price if they were real suede and a softer rubber sole. I have black suede boots that I got last year (Easy Spirit) that were very inexpensive(outlet) and extremely comfortable. I must add I must were cushy shoes, as I am older, but the soles were very hard and hurt my feet. Way overpriced. Would expect Suede or Leather for that price.

These boot were very disappointing......
I just received these boots and could not believe how poorly they fit. I had tried on my friend's stretch boots like these from Sahalie, and they fit my foot like a glove. The boots that came today were so wide in the calf and leg but were the right shoe size. I have average calves and legs, so there was no reason for the leg fit to be so extremely disappointling. If you want a sleek tight boot, do not purchase these. They will be returned today and will be my 1st and last purchase from Sahalie.......

Good if you want slouchy...
I have a previous version of this boot that I wore so frequently I wore them out. The earlier version was sleek and stretchy; that boot molded to your calf. This version is decidedly slouchy--at least a full size too large, pouchy around the ankles, and gaping around my (large) runner's calves. Even with pants tucked in I think these would have been too large in the ankle and calf, and there's no way I could wear these with a skirt. If slouchy fits your style, order a size down so they fit your feet.

I have very small calves and have never been able to find boots that fit. These are perfect. I normally wear a 6.5, but the 6 fit perfect with thin socks.

Good quality and good fit.
I like the fact that they fold for travel. The quality of the boot is very good and the fit is true to size. I haven't worn them yet, but they feel comfortable. I have thin calves and it's hard to find boots that fit. These are perfect. I bought these boots on sale, but the shipping cost was outrageous. I'll have to reconsider this cost on future orders.
