The single best boots I now own and I have alot of diffent high end brand boots! I've gotten more compliments on my Surto's than any boot I own!
Sutro sent me the wrong size. I sent a notification noting that they sent me the incorrect size of 11 instead of 12 and still haven’t heard anything back on how they plan to remedy and send out the correct size as soon as possible. Was very exited for these boots and quality feels great so very upsetting the wrong size was sent and still no response on fixing it.
These boots are phenomenal. After searching for a versatile pair of boots for some time, I couldn't be more happy with my purchase. The quality is excellent, and they were comfortable right out of the box. I would highly recommend picking up a pair - your feet will thank you.
Love these boots! So do all my friends! Beautiful style, quality and color. Love your company!
Fantastic comfort, and well made boots, very impressed overall. Shoes that make you look forward to getting out there and just walking!
The heel makes you about an inch taller. Had a pair for about 5 months before a nail started to protrude from the footbed & the nails from the heel stack had also become alarming visible.Usually, about the only maker that fits my feet well is Charon in EW (Extra Wide).
I purchased the Adler II-D boot. This is a beautiful boot and it felt like I had been wearing it for months. The leather was soft and the boot felt great. I will order another pair in a different color!!!!!
Firstly, I love the look of these boots. I have a fairly large collection and these are my absolute favorite. The leather, although likely not to last as long, is really soft and comfortable. Sadly the finish on these boots leaves a bit to be desired. The cut of leather around the tongue means it won't stay in place. Now have to cut slits which is unfortunate. Already have threads coming loose. I don't expect the same quality as some more expensive companies but for $200 these issues shouldn't exist. Because I loved the look of these I also bought a pair of Ellingtons. They also have issues with finish work around the welt.
Excellent style.After two pairs, I would not consider buying again.I have only worn them 2 days & so far all is well.
Sadly the front band across the foot is way too tight.
Have been wearing my new boots for a few weeks and so far they’ve been fantastic. I get a lot compliments too! Looking at purchasing another pair of Sutro boots in black (or dark gray).

I wrote an email and posted on your IG pleading for support with my boot laces being too short. Someone responded via IG that they'd get back to me, but never followed through. At this point, I want to return my boots due to being defective. As a start up founder and CEO, I had hoped to have a better experience with Sutro Wear. Especially, being a native to SF, I wanted to support a local company. Unfortuantely, you guys failed to deliver in your customer service, and for that, I'm done trying.
Good boots generally consist of good materials and good craftsmanship. They came just in time so i could use them for a concert, & didn't have any problem since the first use they are a little stiff , brand new, like them so much! Thanks!They are near silent when walking, no sticky sound or squeaking sound.A similar pair of Allen Edmunds costs twice as much.
I normally wear a wide, but ordered a half size smaller in a medium per the size guide. Rubber on soles started to peel off after 4 months of occasional wear around the office.I truly did like the Sutros but beware of bad quality.
The leather is the wrong color from what's advertised. Wore these boots inside the house for about two weeks, seeing how there was snow outside, just to break them in.I only needed to wear them twice & now they fit perfectly.No mistaking.
I LOVE these boots! They are top quality leather and craftsmanship, and look formal to wear with a suit.There is a little sticker on the sole (where you might not see it) saying "designed in New York & handcrafted in Mexico" There are good leather craftsman in Mexico but I feel I should have been told the country of origin.
The outer soles are made of play doh, and the inner soles last maybe three months before they delaminate and fold up under your heel. Very sharp.You feel it, they make you look stylish, manly.
The footbed is not holding up to the point where I can see getting them resolved like more expensive shoes.I will be getting some more & probably a couple of their matching belts.Unless they're left than a week old, they don't care about your issues.
First, the good aspects. I really wanted to like these boots, & have worn them most workdays since I got them a few months ago.I wear these boots for about 14 hrs a day during the week, & they have been very comfortable.
I picked these up about 6 months ago as an alternative to my old pair of daily drivers, a pair of Asolo Fugitive GTXs.I wear a 9 normally, & got these in an 8 & a half.They are very stylish & look great with jeans or even a nice pair of slacks.
The quality of the boots is great and they arrived in perfect condition.Fantastic product.
They're dope, and you won't regret it. Great quality & leather, buy half size smaller than your Nike
However, when I first wore them out, the inside of the eyelets tore up the surface of the leather on the tongue - not a good look. There leather so tight took a few wearings..
They feel sturdy, but I've only had them for a week; time will tell. These are great boots & was so impressed that I ordered a second & third pair in black, dark honey & terracotta! Fit is perfect.If all Sutro products are this comfortable, I will be purchasing several more pairs!
Unfortunately, my experience has been a bit of a let down.
That being said there are some quality issues that I don't really think look good.
The brown color is more orange in person as well.
Never in my life have a bought a pair shoes or boots and in the first wearing just fell I love l, but these Sutro Alder II boots are the best first wear boots I have ever owned!
Beautiful looking boots. Saving them for the Summer, to much salt on the sidewalks right now. Don't want to ruin them. Love the color of the leather. Looking at the grey ones too, didn't have my size at the time.
Love the style of these Alder II's. The balance between a dressy versus casual/rugged appearance is just what I was looking for in a boot. Very comfortable right from the start. I usually wear a size 10.5 shoe and size 11 sneaker. Opted for size 11 because I wanted just a bit extra room for my toes. Quite happy with the fit although I probably could have made a 10.5 work, too. So I'd say they fit true to size. The shopping experience was excellent. I was kept up to date on shipping and delivery was fast. I'm very happy so far! Great value and great service. I'm looking forward to seeing how these boots age and I'm sorely tempted to pick up another pair. Might try one of the work boots next!
The style is great, and it's fairly comfortable.The leather is real unlike other cheap "genuine leather" shoes I have that are peeling.After reading many reviews I was worried that even though I'd ordered "Wide" they would still be too narrow.
These are my first pair of Sutro Footwear and I am very satisfied with them. What a boot.I still need to wear a pair of regular socks with some thin wool socks over these to get them to fit right (bought them to wear in the winter with a pair of wool socks).
Definetly order 5 size bigr than your normal size as instructed I purchased these boots looking for a casual dress look, I do believe these fit the bill.I cannot recommend enough, if you want quality boots that don't break the bank these are hard to beat.
I've had them about a week now and they're broken in.I seldom wore boots so it will take time to get used to them.All in all I like the look would like to get a little more used look to it for my liking.This was not the case.
Like the look of the Alder I a bit more. Returned and exchanged. Good customer service
Currently, the new boots fit very well and I look forward to having them soften up with my everyday use. Heel is a little too low for me.Definitely worth the $250 I paid.I like the color a lot & it allows more versatility in what I'm able to wear with the boots.
Martens sized translate as expected! Fit perfect and look great.He wore them out that same night with friends.Figured all I need to do was wear it for a day to break it in, but it didn't help & my feet was sore for a week.
May have been good company in the past but not true anymore. The Alder is a really nice handmade leather boot.Nice looking all around boot but not very good for dancing with the rubber sole, a little sticky on the dance floor.
I've been trying to break it in, but it hasn't gotten any better.
As every5 has said before, go at least a half size down from your normal shoe size. This brand does boots correctly! Top notch leather & the detailed crafting is obvious.They handle everything from walking the pavement when doing street photography to scrambling over rough trails in the woods with just a few scuffs along the way.
Wearing them right now, own several pairs. I got these for my boyfriend as an anniversary gift.They are incredibly handsome with a great balance of aesthetic & practicality.
After leather conditi5r, and wearing the boots in, they became very supple. Look great.The best part is the apathetic support from Sutro.
The boots weren't very comfortable initially and had quite a bit of heal slipping (creating hotspots) but after about a weeks worth of break in time (which is what I expected) they are quite comfortable.Typically wear a size 8 & a half but as recommended the the 8 was the way to go.
Very nice looking boots for the office or a casual look around town. Great Boot!He thought the color was awesome(I got the honey 5s; they look kind of reddish online) & because I shipped them to his office, all of his coworkers also complimented the color & style.
Totally different styling from the Asolos, but they tackled the same terrain and use in stride. The delivery was faster than projected.They are quite comfortable & the studs on the sole provide much needed grip in precipitation.For the money & quality I don't believe the other boots compare.
These boot fit well and were very comfortable The boot fit very well out of the box with just a minimal amount of break in time needed.The boots fit comfortably, albeit a bit big at first, though this turned out to work in my favor when wearing heavier wool socks during the cold winter months.
He loves them.Can be worn casually or dressed up.cant wait to see them a year from now.
I'm flat-footed so I would say these boots have ok arch support- but this wasn't a big deal.Will see how they are a couple of weeks from now.The construction & quality is premium especially at a great price point in comparison to other boot companies I looked into.
Overall, the quality of leather didn't meet my expectation. Not a bad boot.He wears a 1 & a half to 11.
Had a pair of Frye Boots that lasted me about a year, but the leather sole was going to be expensive to replace when a hole wore in. Nice looking, comfortable boots.They are quite roomy.I've had them about a month & I'm very impressed after daily wear in downtown Chicago during winter! They are breaking in great, & I'm happy with the finish (make sure you polish to protect the leather!)
. So far my husband has worn these almost daily for the past 2-3 months & they are aging beautifully.Feel good in these boots.
Runs a half size bigger tha good pair of boots are in the money. Well made comfortable boots.Because of this reason I was only able to wear this boots once in every ten days or so.
TBC graciously sent me a replacement shoe however a similar issue with the construction of the shoe heel allowed for the nails to be almost protruding out. Follow the manufacturer's recommendation on selecting size.High quality.
I was worried I might have to do the same, and I was right.Nice job!All new leather boots require a little break-in.
For the price, you see the quality of the product. I got these to substitute for a dress shoe in business attire, & they are hands down the most comfortable show (boot) I have ever worn.Reviewers are spot-on with getting a smaller size.
Good compliment to my dress code Very nice looking on the outside -- but the inner sole was much too hard & uncomfortable - returning the bootsI also think the boots should be cheaper & not just fattening out the wallets of NYC people.
These are a pretty good pair of booths, not without some flaws though. I get compliments on these every time I wear these.5 of the worst purchases in my life.
The honey color I got has gorgeous red t5s.I do particularly like the style, as it is not as bulbous as say a Charon.
The heels are indeed a little too high, needed a few days to adjust to it.
If you are looking for good quality, handmade leather boots, that happen to be comfortable, stylish, functional and! Look good with any outfit, but these boots. These are as beautiful & well-made as every5 says & even though I got a& a half size smaller the boot seem like there was to much room at the toes.I have been battling with a squeaking sound since the leather inside rubs against my foot when I walk, but it's probably the type of socks I wear? Shoes are insanely comfortable! Quality of leather is amazing & definitely challenging to clean.Coming from some5 that is fairly picky when it comes to footwear.
Bought half a size smaller than sneaker size as was suggested. love Sutro Footwear! Great boots! Sharp & classic!Check them out.
The 9 and a half was still way too big. These are literally the most comfortable boots I have ever owned! They are well constructed, & took very little breaking in.I contacted customer service, & although the rep I dealt with was very kind & exchanged the boots for me, she just said that it needs some polish.
I am keeping the brown because this style, though theyre really similar it was more of what I was looking for.
I really loved the color of the and similar look of the sutros and the beautiful sole/heel.
I received a great boot, but it wasn't the right one. The color of the leather as well as the wood used in the sole was wrong. When I reached out and provided photos, I was told that I received the right boot and that I chose poor lighting in the photos provided. It's a bummer because they clearly make a really great product. It's very well crafted. Customer service needs some work, though.
Also, the width is very narrow and too tight, I wore them every other day for 2 weeks trying to get them to loosen up but that did not happen. well built nice looking you can walk all day in them, I like that they are not insulated I live in Baja.They have a cushi5d insole so didn't need to buy anything different.
What I don't like is that you can't remove the insole I like to replace mine with 5 with some arch support I put 5 in then the boot was a little snug I took to the cobbler had him stretch it for 10 bucks now they fit perfect.You wont find better quality at this price.Would have liked better arch support (due to my flat feet :/ ) however no trouble as easy to fix with an insole arch support.That's not good craftsmanship.
Have not reiceved the boot yet
Perfect fit, and incredibly comfortable!
. It hasn't even been& a half a year & my boots seem to be showing a lot of wear.Supports my reasonably wide feet well.Its comfortable for all day walking.
Beautiful shoes - fit perfect, look great! I'm very happy with them.
The most beautiful shoes I've ever had, thank you so much!
Amazing boots; I can't stop wearing them. I have a pair of Nike sneakers in size 11 and got these boots in size 10 and they fit just right. Nicely cushioned soles too.
The fit is perfect if you orderand a half a size smaller. I usually wear a size 10 shoe, but the website said to buy a half size down, so I did.I'd either save your money & go with Bullboxer, are spend a little more & get something like a Charon.
. The scuffs on the "honey" leather have already made these useless as "nice" shoes. .
Super craftsmanship & excellent fit...first class boot/company!
They need to come with a neck brace after getting them all I could do was look at them.
Best shoes I have ever owned!! Hands down! I had bought a pair that was a size to small and the customer service was amazing and the exchange so easy. I will be back for more!!!
Look and feel great. . .I didn't & regret it big time.
These boots look great. These boots were easier to put on & take off, than I expected.These also wear down much faster than the $99 Bullboxer Brosus Cap Toe Boot, but the materials feel nicer.Unfortunately they scratch/scuff really easily.
It is very good shoes! Very comfortable! perfect style! and hight quality! I really like it and i very glad! I will recommend this company to my friends. Thanks you from Russia with love)
Third pair Wonderful as usual!
Excellent craftsmanship, hands down the best pair of boots I own. The stitching enhances the quality of leather used to make these boots. The leather feels soft and its flexible enough to fit my wide feet. I hesitated purchasing these boots for its retail price as I have never owned hand crafted shoes or boots that I would have paid more than 200 dollars for. They are very comfortable, I love these boots and my feet appreciate it. Awesome design! Thank You Suttro Footwear TEAM!
The shoe runs a bit big.
These shoes look very cool and are super comfortable, but the way they're designed wouldn't keep them on my heel.
I get compliments regularly. Pros: look goodI got the "natural" color, which wound up being more red than the photo used to market them.
I haven't smelled this much leather when opening a shoebox in years.Funny, each delivery arrived on a Sutro.Take the advice of thew company & order a half size smaller than usual.
They are comfortable and look good, but are obviously well made.
Great looking pair of boots.
Great boots. All perfect.
The boots are super sweet. Fit was great, good quality, a bit of a unique look. Can't go wrong with picking up a pair of these boots.
Beautiful shoe! Great pair of boots, love the rubber on the outsole, they're very comfortable, and were essentially broken in only after a day or two of wear. My only issue was that there were stitching defects on the pair I received -- HOWEVER, I took my boots to my local cobbler and Sutro is paying the tab! Overall happy with the purchase. If they prove to be durable then I'll absolutely buy another pair.
Stiff in the ankle but the leather is good quality so it will take me some time to break them in cause I don't wear them that much. Love the bootsI actually look forward to days where I have to, or get to, wear them.
The shoes are falling apart at the seams after several wears.
The boot is awesome! Looks great, feels great! Very stylish! absolutely looks a lot better in person! I recommend to anyone who is looking at these boots! Veteran Approved!
My son has a favorite boot for Christmas! Thank you!
The boot is great. It is comfortable and looks very nice. My one gripe is that it does seem to run a little large and the toebox seems a little wider and taller than it needs to be.
