The Pauline Boot in Leather

The Pauline Boot in Leather is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect boots! I've been looking everywhere for an ankle-ish boot with a chunkier heel. I wasn't looking to spend this much, but I figured since I was having ZERO luck elsewhere, I'd take my chances. I'm so glad I did because they are perfect! And so comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Boot I was looking for a great every day boot that would go with everything and hold up for the upcoming winter. So far this boot has been phenomenal. I love how soft the leather is. It is a really well made staple piece to own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Ankle Boot This is the perfect ankle boot! It's very comfortable- I wear them all day & live in a busy city. The heel height is ideal as well. I am typically a 7.5, but after reading other reviews, I purchased an 8. The 8 fit me perfectly!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect classic black ankle boot! I've been looking for just the right black ankle boot for ages, something with a slightly high shaft that's not too loose at the top. And this is it! I love that it doesn't have too much of a gap at the top and is just the right height, so flattering on the leg with dressier cropped pants or more casual with rolled jeans. The feel of the leather is delish and they're breaking in beautifully after just a couple wears. Comfortable beyond belief. Sometimes I wish the zipper moved a bit more smoothly, but I can deal. Money well spent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On trend and comfy to walk in These boots look great, but the real test for me is if I can walk several blocks without any discomfort. I live in the city and I walk and take public transportation everywhere. It's imperative that boots are comfortable and don't cause any arch pain or blisters. These passed the comfort test with flying colors, and they look fantastic. They fit perfect, but I could probably have gone up a half size just to give myself a little more room in the toe bed. They don't rub or cramp my toes at all, so I stuck with my usual size- 8.5. I have pretty sensitive feet, so if a shoe isn't well-cushioned or causes any rubbing, I won't wear it. These provide just enough cushion and no sliding or rubbing that could cause blisters or callouses. Very please with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Boot A little tight at first because leather doesn't stretch quite so much, but they are true to size. Everything I expected to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A go-to bootie I went to Madewell to try on all their boots/booties, intending to buy the Chelsea boot with the 2 1/2" heel. While I was there, I tried the Pauline and another style, but this boot won, hands down. The footbed is padded and the heel does not seem to be 2-2 1/2" high. The rear zipper doesn't irritate and the height is above the ankle bone, which rubbed in the other shoes. Since I plan to wear these in Europe over the holidays, with lots of walking, the recommendation of the staff was essential. Some of the clerks wear these 8-9 hours a day, and after wearing them I can see why. When choosing a boot, check and see where it rubs on *your* foot and ankle, as that's where you'll have problems after tromping around in them for 8-10 hours over cobblestones or on concrete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect boots Timeless black boots. The slightly-taller ankle boot works perfectly for pants and dresses. Lovely heel height is practical for all-day comfort. Black soles allow you to easily dress up or down compared to a more casual brown sole. A great addition to my closet, love these boots!
