It's my second pair of Sutro's. Love them. Still breaking this new pair in.
Like gloves for my feet. Best pair of boots I’ve ever owned, love the quality. Only small improvement would be laces that were 2 inches longer. I recommend these boots to friends who like good shoes and style.
Perfect fit and awesome color! Really goes well with all washes of denim
Love these boots! Can't wait to see them get better over time
Been seeing this boot everywhere which drew me to the site. Found this color and it looks even better in person! I'm eyeing the dark greys.... thanks for making such beautiful shoes!
The color is way more reddish/purple than it appears like online but its even better in person tbh. Like nothing else i've owned
Great shoe! Best Red-Brown boot I could ask for!
I thought they would have to be broken in a little bit no. They are the most comfortable boots from the first time I put them on. I wore them to work on day two and received several comments on how great they look. When I got home they still felt good. They have a good size toe box.....room to spread out. I know where I'm buying my next pair of dress shoes.
Great shoes! You probably won't ever find a shoe this good for this price. They're mind-alteringly good.
Alder Boot This is my second pair of shoes from Sutro. Both pairs fit my foot beautifully as I have a high arch and they wrap around the foot. In addition the cushioned sole makes walking and extended standing quite pleasurable. I continue to look for their next styles and will be buying more shoes.
I love these boots. They were worth every penny!
This is the first review I’ve ever done and the only reason why I choose to do this was to tell everyone who is even thinking about buying these don’t hesitate just do it. I’ve bought a lot of boots in my day and these by far are the best boots I’ve ever gotten. I love them so much. They are worth ever penny and the price is perfect. They are even worn in before I got them so I didn’t have to break them in
Just got my second pair of Alder-II’s (black and honey) and they’re the best. I’m 5’4” and where a size 10, the fit is perfect. I’ve gotten a ton of compliments at work and out with friends when wearing them with jeans, chinos, or suit pants.
Love my boot (Alder boot honey). The leather is soft the fit is great (a bit snug). It’s a beautiful shoe and I can’t wait to buy my next one.
Love these boots. Been wearing them almost everyday since I received them. Super comfy. Could appreciate a better rate for international shipping to be able to purchase more ;)
Looks great (casual yet refined) with great build quality. Fits true to size - I’m a 9.5 in dress shoes, 10 in sneakers. I bought the 9.5, which fit snug, but comfortable. I would not be able to wear thick socks (which I don’t anyhow). Best part is the combination of looks and comfort. Amazing foam insole! Why don’t people make this standard in boots?? Worst part is having to pay an extra 33% UPS charges/duties :( (nothing to do with the product itself)
If you’re looking at these boots - just do it. Buy them! These are hands down the best boots I’ve ever purchased. These boots should cost 2-3x what they do. I get compliments every day. Sooooo happy I found Sutro!
Just received my Sutro’s today and the packaging is top notch! Was like unwrapping a Christmas present. The quality is fantastic and the smell of the freshly tanned and creamed leather is exactly what I had hoped for. Putting the boots on for the first time was a bit tight but after wearing them for a few minutes to let the loosen up and take the shape of my foot, they quickly loosened up and fit like a glove. These will be my favorite boots for years to come. I’m sure of it!
Finally pulled the trigger and got my first pair of Sutro boots. They've broken in well so far and they are comfortable. I am a wedding photographer and i follow happy couples all day. I need it some good looking boots without compromising comfort. Im Glad i found this company. By the way the leather smells great. Ordering a Third pair soon....
These shoes are amazing, and people double take at them everywhere theyre worn!
I can’t imagine these shoes being any more perfect. They are comfortable, stylish, and built to last. I’m already thinking about buying another pair in a different color since I like these so much. I would definitely reccomend them!
Big fan! My first pair of boots, and very glad I chose Sutro - they look great, fit great
Very high quality boot and very comfortable.
Beautiful boots. They look and feel amazing- absolutely a classic.
Great style and very comfortable. The fit is excellent. The color gets better the more I wear them.
Look just like the pics. Fits perfectly to size. Fantastic customer service. Highly recommended.
Great service and they arrived so fast at Barcelona!
My new favorite pair of shoes! You have a customer for life!
Good boots. My only issue is the toe. In the pics the toe looks a little more round. They are a little more pointed then I typically like.
More brown than “honey” as shown online. Shoe strings too short to be tied as shown online.
Beautiful boots! Love the comfort and the style. I often wear anywhere from a size 11 to a size 12, and in these a size 12 is perfect for me and my “low volume” foot. If you’re often between sizes I’d suggest hedging towards the larger size.
I wear a size 9 and this felt more like a size 8 . They were way too small so had to return.
Love the look of these. I think they run a bit tight but only on the tops of the feet. They’re difficult to pull on and I’m hoping (like all good leather products) they mold to my use.
Beautiful,beautiful boots. I’ve gotten numerous compliments on them since receiving them for a birthday. There is a significant break in period but that’s to be expected with such a quality leather boot. My one issue is that they run a little small. The 11 fits the length of my foot but the tounge is a bit tight on the top of my foot. I imagine the leather will eventually loosen but it currently limits how long I can wear them. Overall, these will likely be the best boots I have ever owned.
I actually bought these on Nordstrom site. The picture showed them to be dressier than they are in person, which suits me better. LOVE the leather, the smell of natural leather. Nice job with craftsmanship!
I love these shoes and I have bought more of them to replenish the one I ran into the ground.
Difficult (very) to get the shoes on first time or two but after that, very good. Stores that you carry the product in seem to be very limited in size availability (maybe that is a good problem to have), hence why I bought them off your website. Noticed your website also out of many of the sizes - but lucky for me, my size was available in the shoe that I wanted. I'm very pleased with my purchase, and a few people at work noticed too... Cheers
I just received the boots today, imagine the waiting period, it took too long for the shipment. For the future, I would suggest an option of selecting the type of courier to deliver the products, even if we have to pay extra its worth it. Its only my suggestion, maybe it's only applicable to this place. I worried of making additional purchase as the situation here is such. Otherwise, everything else checks out fine. Thank you Sutro I really love your boots and it's well made, a True American made boots. Regards Anthony Jaykumar Samy
I got a pair of the black oxfords before these, and had to break them in over a few weeks- not these boots. Right out of the box they fit like a glove. The color was a little different from the pictures, but not terribly so. Best boots I've ever owned.
Beautiful shoe I would prefer it if it was more traditional lace to vs the laces going around the ankle. But very well crafted. And a good value.
Incredible! Love these boots! Great quality. The photo doesn't do them justice.
Gorgeous boots These boots are amazing, look and feel great
Great Boots! The best investment I ever made! Wonderfully crafted and extremely comfortable.
Love them !!!!
Great look but poorly constructed I loved the look of the boots but while trying them on for the very first time the finger strap ripped in half... cheap leather I'm guessing... I'm bummed out but will have to return these without an exchange since I'm pretty sure all of the boots have been outfitted with the same thin finger straps in the rear of the shoe.
Great boots! My brother in-law had these boots, and I noticed them during a visit. I bought them because I thought they were beautiful, but I had no idea how incredibly comfortable they would be. I love them.
Legendary level boot! Comfort level 9000! Aesthetics level 9000! Quality level 9000! Seriously now, perfect fit out of the box. Break in will only make these more comfortable. The leather and craftsmanship is very nice. Oh that fresh leather smell!!!!!...... The only con here are the laces which are either too long or too short, depending how you go about it. If you loop the lace around the ankle laces are too short. If you don't, it's too long... Just can't win... Will not knock a star because of that, but it's a little annoying. It's my second pair of Sutro boots and will buy a third, no doubt about it!
Quality is excellent, I will purchase another pairs of boots very soon !!!! I strongly recommend this brand, price is nothing compared with the look and quality on materials.
My size is usually 11 So make sure to order half size on top!!!! Or you will have to return your beautiful boots, and wait longer...
The first thing I noticed, even before opening the box, was the smell. It's amazing. I've been wearing my boots for a week now and I want more, especially the Honey Alders. They're comfortable, they look great, I'm enjoying how they're wearing in. Buy some, you'll thank yourself.
The height at the arch is so tight I couldn’t get them on. I removed the insole and now they’re great. Just need to find a thin leather insole to cover up the footbed.
This is my third pair of the same kind . I wear the shoes like they are my tools, they need to be comfortable, they need to look good and they need to make me feel good. If I have bought three of the same kind you should know that I must like them a lot . I've had two pairs of the honey color and I recently purchased a black one. I will be buying More of them in the future as I run The two pair I have left to the ground as I did to my first one. Love them and I hope this company keeps this quality up as time goes by and they become more successful.
Sleek style and classic look. I've been wearing mine everyday!!
The boots look good but are extremely squeaky. I sound like a clown walking around the office. Is there anything that can be done to prevent this?
Just got my shoes in. Shoes fit perfect so comfortable!!!! If you curios as to how they fell they are by far the best fitted boot yet. The style is perfect and goes with everything.
Great design and solid quality!
Most comfortable shoe I ever owned
I loved my Alder Boot in Grey. The leather was supple, with an elegant polish to it, and I wanted to get it in black as well. The black version I received is a perfectly good boot, but I was disappointed in the differences compared to the grey ones. The black leather was not as supple, and it was dull. The leather of the upper parts was dull and subtly textured, and the body was dull and smooth. It also came with extra-long laces that requre you to bring the laces once around the back, and to the front again to lace properly, which was also different from the other Alder Boot I have. The long lace style is easily changed with a new pair of laces, but seemed arbitrarily different than the other shoes, and more subjectively, seemed overly fussy for boot design that seems to emphasize getting the basics right. While I was surprised at the differences as compared to my other Alder Boot, this is a very well-made boot, and some people may prefer it, and even love the differences.
Looks good, extremely squeaky The boot looks great but it is extremely squeaky when walked around in
Alder Boot I liked the design of the boot but they didn't have my usual size, 9.5. Sometimes I wear a 9, like in Aldens. But the Alders were too tight. But I did notice that the stitching on the tongue on the right boot was coming undone. So I would have returned it anyway. Good customer service.
He loves it They did good job with shipping and adding notes as a gift.
I am blown away by the quality of these boots. I was unsure how the quality would be at this price point, $218 for handmade, goodyear welted boots sounds too good to be true, but I am extremely pleased with these. I am consistently impressed by how good they look and how comfortable they are, and they even feel as comfortable and well made as some other $400 boots I have owned in the past. Highly recommended
My new favorites! They look and feel like high quality shoes. Amazing.
Great boots. Comfortable out of the box and sharp looking! We'll see how they hold up, but they seem of good quality.
I love these boots. They're comfortable out of the box, and as I've seen with my first pair, they get more comfy as time goes on.
I'm excited to play with a grey shoe; there is a sold balance of what I can do with it. From dark jeans with an earthy toned top, think blazer or sweater, to wearing it with a suit and tie. It’s tough to pigeon hole it into one thing, I feel that the grey boot might become my camel coat of footwear, goes well in upper casual or in business, goes well just about anywhere and is a welcome change from the standard brown belt and brown shoe.
Great look. Great fit . Great value. My only concern was lack of response when I emailed a question about delivery- Nitpicking on my part actually. Excellent product !
The Alder boots are the most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned. The styling and feel of the leather are amazing. My feet are slightly wide so I went with a 9 1/2 instead of my usual 9 and the fit is perfect. Thanks Sutro!
Nice and unique shoes. Perfect services provided.
Excellent pair of boots! I wear a 10.5 in sneakers, 10 in boots... these 10’s fit perfectly. Well worth the price.
I received the boots last week and just wanted to say thanks again for the lightning fast shipping and the leather card holder/wallet that came with it. I've been wearing these boots the last few days and they are hands down the most comfortable and stylish pair of shoes I have ever owned - I absolutely love them! The leather is strong, yet soft and flexible around my feet and the soles of the shoe offer a lot of comfort and support. The grey color is completely perfect as well. You've made a life long customer out of me - thanks again!
Amazing boot. Beautiful, supple leather. Incredibly comfortable. Gorgeous stain. Very well made.
In the two purchases I've made from Sutro in the past 2 years they have provided top-notch service with full intention to make me, as a customer, as satisfied as possible. Their boots are of the highest quality build, comfort, and beauty I've ever put onto my feet and cannot fathom purchasing boots elsewhere. Thank you very much and best of luck to the future!
I have been looking for a pair of boots for awhile now, online, in stores and never found that right pair. My boyfriend owns two pair Sutro shoes and loves them. After of a month of really looking online, I found the Sutro boot that I really liked, and have to really love, Alder Boot Dark Grey. This boot is really versatile in that you can wear them in a dress casual look or a casual look. I have walked six miles in this boot, walking around the city and I have to say a really comfortable shoe with support and comfort, yet in a sturdy yet sophisticated design.
This is the second pair I've bought, I'm really impressed with what high quality shoes these are for the price point.
I like it - the only strange things were (1) the sole was sticky to begin with for some reason, it picked up a layer of leaves from the sidewalk (though it is fine now) and (2) there is a strange bump that seems like it should be under the arch of the foot, but it is on the wrong side so my foot just presses on that bump all the time.
Gorgeous shoe Third time back to Sutro, can't get enough. Great service, quick delivery to Australia.

Beautiful, comfortable boots. These are the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. Absolutely beautiful.
Beautiful boots! This is my second pair, and as soon as they have the others I want in my size, I'll have a third. Love them!
