Super fast international shipping (the shoes got to Hong kong in 6 days), feels really comfortable, even on the first day of wearing it!
Great quality leather boot with durable flex sole in key wear areas. Only complaint is the laces are weak, and snapped in less than 4 months wear. I did not hear back from Sutro support the past three weeks, so calling them out. Not good customer service after purchasing three pair of leather shoes and boots in 8 months.
I have four pairs of sutro boots/shoes. I LOVE them all... Sutro pays close attention to product quality. I highly recommend Sutro. I hope everyone treats themselves to a beautiful pair of sutro boots... you won't be disappointed. :)
Beautiful shoe, perfect fit. Thank you, Sutro for offering smaller sizes in "men's". I hope to see more options. My only qualms are 1) the arch where the balls of my feet sit feel too high 2) the breaking in period was a bit painful.
Feel roomier than other boots i've owned but the insoles are amazingly comfortable
A bit on the wider side but length and overall fit is great. The insole is SO comfortable. A definite all-day wear kind of boot and i couldn't be any more happy about it. No break in either!
Been following sutro for years now and have been waiting for them to bring something like this for women. So glad that they did because they are perfect. They're a little roomier than most womens boots ive owned but i love that i can wear thicker socks with them in the colder months.. A++
Vermont Black Downright some of the best shoes I've ever purchased. Would definitely buy another pair.
Love my Sutro shoes - great choice to dress up any look, but also super comfortable for more casual wear.
Love the boots. They look great, feel great, and are of high quality. Ordered the Vermont in the whiskey color. When they arrived I noticed they were darker in color than the website indicated. I emailed info@sutrofootwear and received a prompt and friendly reply from Sam, who explained that indeed there is a descrepancy in color from what is advertised online and the actual product. Sutro is aware of this and has since removed the whiskey color from the website. The actual color is honey and is probably a more versatile color than whiskey anyway. Overall I’m very pleased with these boots and will purchase some oxfords sometime in the future. Highly recommended!
I ordered the Vermont "Whiskey" size 10. I realize after seeing and wearing this boot what my feet have been missing with quality and comfort. I was looking for a resoleable shoe in this modern time of wasteful habits. Respect for the animal and creating a "forever shoe" was a large reason for this purchase. The customer service replied immediately to a concern I had and worked with resolving that concern way more than expected. FYI the "Whiskey" is actually the "Honey" in regards to coloring and finish. Am looking forward to another purchase. Matthew W.
Great pair of shoes. I really like them. Two things to watch out for- 1) The laces are too short for the kind of thing requires (one loop through the back) 2) The heel loop to pull on the shoe isn’t well done- it has a cloth lining that began to come off the day I started wearing it and the stitching has begun to fray in a week.
LOVE these boots and would recommend these to anyone - my only concern is the color of the "vermont whiskey" boots on the website are much lighter than they are in person - I still like them but they are definitely darker than what shows on the website. Thanks
These boots look beautiful, and the color of the leather is exactly what I wanted. They seem like they will last a long time. The footbed was pretty comfortable right out of the box. The only negative so far is that the boots are tight across the top of my foot where my arches are. I have pretty high arches, and I think the leather will stretch while I'm breaking them in. Once they're broken in, I'm sure I'll love the boots even more.
I went on vacation to Alaska recently and to my surprise, I only wore these shoes. I wore them for 3 days straight and over 55k steps and my feet were not dying at the end of it. These are not only shoes that look great, they feel great too. I even scuffed them up quite a bit, but with the natural oils embedded within the shoes, the scuffs came right off! You really are getting your money's worth and more with these shoes. Trust me. Buy them. You won't regret it.
I'm normally a size 8.5 but they are too tight. I'll be ordering a 9 to see if those fit!
These boots are amazing! The fit is true to size and the style of the boot is definitely unisex. I would say that whiskey is the best color to get for this boot because the details in the leather and the stitching pop out more. Also, you can never go wrong with a brown boot!
I was a little sceptical about ordering online with getting to try them on but they look just like the phones and fit great. Very comfortable. Amazingly pleased!
I had been looking for a nice pair of shoes like this for a long time but could only ever find them in men's sizes. I was so stoked that these boots are unisex and actually came in my size! I heeded Sutro's advice and ordered half a size down (7.5, I usually get 8). The shoe fit the length of my foot perfectly. However, when I first got the boots, they were actually super tight over the top of my foot, which is really weird because I've never had that problem in any other shoe (Sutro or not) before. I loved them too much to let it detour me from wearing them, and now that I've had them for about one week, they fit much better. I think they will continue to feel better as I break them in further. The color is exactly as pictured, the leather is awesome quality and finished well, and the sole includes rubber for extra grip. Overall an awesome shoe. Sutro also sent me some awesome goodies along with my boots, as well as a hand-written note thanking me for being a customer. I love that!
Was surprised these fit me! The style feels masculine but they look amazing with jeans. Only thing i'm not sure about is the sole coloring
Quality pair of boots. You can see the attention to detail they put into making these. Its safe to say that both me and my feet are happy haha
Great color! Very comfortable
Digging the contrast in the heel. The leather is soft and feels like its already aging nicely. Looking forward to wearing these more!
Great service, great product, great to wear. And a great look (even the cows in Australia agree).
Not quite sturdy enough from observation. Returned the product and am waiting for refund.
For 6 years I have been searching for the perfect boots in both versatility, style and quality. I had my search narrowed down, but still didn’t feel right about forking over 300 + Benjamins for some of the leading boots on the market. Not to mention wearing them with a suit was stretching it. Finally, after a long hard search I somehow, someway came across Sutro. After studying the site, brand, quality and options for a few days I decided to pull the trigger because the price point is unmatched for the quality I read about. Expecting a reasonable break in period, I was pleasantly surprised at the incredible comfort straight out of the box. These are now my all time, hands down, favorite pair of footwear I have ever owned in my life time! I have worn them with a suit, jeans & chinos! Abosolutely love them and would recommend to anybody!
The shoe is absolutely beautiful, unfortunately it was to big so now I'm waiting until you have my size in stock.
They felt comfortable right from the start! I went with a size 11 - fit is true to size, i'd say
The leather is very sturdy and soft. I look forward to some great wear in the upcoming months :)
