H by Hudson™ Riley Side-Zip Mid Boots

H by Hudson™ Riley Side-Zip Mid Boots is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from QUALITY! I bought the brown pair in size 36 (US sz 6) and I've been wearing them everyday since. I am extremely happy with the look and quality of these boots and would recommend them to anyone. I was prepared to "break" the leather in, but these boots have not hurt my feet at all after all day wear. Completely pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size up and you won't be disappointed with these beautiful boots When the first pair arrived, I was so excited, pulled them on and ow!!! They were much too tight and short in the toe! I usually wear a size 7 so I purchased a 37 on the advise of the (very nice) phone customer service person. Disappointed by not daunted, I popped them back in the post with the free return tag and exchanged for a 38. A few days later, the second pair showed up, I put them on and didn't take them off the rest of the day ... and zipped them up the next day and didn't take them off until the end of that day. And I'm looking forward to wearing them on a trip where I will do much walking. All this without breaking them in, they are so comfortable. And they look so stylish, too. An all-around great boot and value, very well made. The shaft height is perfect for me, and I love the heel height. I'm 5'2" with shorter legs and smaller calves so they are fine with skirts, dresses and pants. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sleek and simple design These are beautiful boots. I ordered a size larger than I would normally get based on reviews on other websites and they fit well. They are comfortable with their low heel. Their price seems high but I haven't found such a combination of beautiful design and comfort and practicality in other boots on the market right now. They are fairly versatile. I think they look good with skinny jeans. They look good with skirts and dresses, however they look much better with tights, because of their dark color. My pair looked very much like the picture in color. They are dark brown, to be sure. I wouldn't call them black.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved these in brown leather, should have ordered a size larger in navy suede I have these boots in brown leather and have loved them, so jumped at the chance to purchase the navy ones on sale. Unfortunately the suede (navy) boot seems to run smaller than the leather (brown) boot. I ordered the same size as the leather, but the suede is definitely smaller and very snug. I would have ordered a size up had I known. Unfortunately because they were on sale, they are not returnable or exchangeable. If you're ordering the suede, order a size larger than you usually order. Brown leather is true to size and very comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brown is WAY darker than pictured here. Overall, I like these boots very much. They are comfortable, high quality, and good looking. Unfortunately, the brown is almost a black in person. it's almost like someone rubbed black polish on top of a brown boot. If you're looking for a boot exactly like the color pictured- don't buy them. If you don't mind a brown/black boot get them. I am going to keep them, because I love the style. I do however wish they were the color pictured. Perhaps they vary from pair to pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful boot - awkward height The boots are beautiful. They actually zip on both sides of the ankle.. Makes it super easy to take on and off. The zippers honestly seemed a little wonky though, every time I tried them on I had to work to zip two of the four zippers. The reason I returned these is only because they sat at a weird height on my leg. They weren't ankle boots, nor were they really calf boots - an awkward in between. All my skinny jeans poofed out the top of the boot even though they're form fitting jeans. Putting jeans over the boots didn't work either since the boot opening made my jeans bulge out. Cute boot - bad fit.
