I practically live in these boots LOL. The color is great and the comfort level is perfect.
boots made for walking I had been eyeing these boots for over a year and when they went on sale it was a no brainer. Unique and lovely color, comfort right out of the box. Thanks for quick service!
I love ❤️ these boots. They are a great fit and I don’t have to break them in. I wear a size 11 and they make my feet look small. I will be ordering the gray soon. Thanks!
Beautiful boots! They ran half a size large for me but they exchanged sizes with no difficulty at all.
I fell in love with Sutro when I found my first pair at a thrift shop on Haight Street in San Francisco years ago. That being said, these are my third pair, and I love them! The Mendelle is an excellent mellowed-down combat style boot with class - and they go with everything (I got them in black). Quality is on point. For the fit: I normally wear a 7.5 (or 8 in Nike running shoes), and have a slightly wider toe box. These boots fit me perfectly, and even a bit roomy, so wearing thicker socks is no problem. No breaking-in needed. I would recommend that if you live in a warmer climate and don't plan on wearing thick socks, or have narrower feet, go with a size 7. Take care of them and they'll last for years!
These boots are beautifully made and so gorgeous! Haven't gotten to wear them yet, as the weather is unseasonally warm here lately, but I am really looking forward to wearing them for many years to come!
These boots are made for walking..... yes!!! And that's just what i'll do! Love them - so comfortable and very little break in period.
They're great! I had to exchange these for a size up but happy with how they fit. They are so comfortable!
Perfect fit for me (7.5) but was considering ordering a half size up because i might want to wear thicker socks in the future. Otherwise, i think they will stretch enough for it to become roomier.
The perfect black boot!
Beautiful, perfect shoes.
Love My Boots This is my fourth pair of Sutro boots. Comfortable right out of the box. Looking forward to wearing them all the time.
I love the color of these. They are super comfortable and I know I'll have them for a long time. It also feels good to buy from this company. The shoes were sent with a personalized note and I'm glad they weren't manufactured in China. Sutro is right: buy a half size small and they will be perfect. I can't wait to buy another pair from them!
A beautifully well made boot. Fit is a bit on the narrow side, but im sure will stretch out nicely with wear.
The other reviews were 50/50 in terms of size when i was looking but they're pretty true to size for me!
I like it!! Beautiful color, material, just i found the shoelace a little bit small. Besides that, I will highly recommend the brand and the model.
Comfortable once they are broken in.
These are beautiful boots and are true to the images (in fact, I think they look even better in person!). They're comfortable and don't need a lot of breaking into, and they're sturdy but not too heavy. They run a little small, though. I'm normally a size 6.5 but had to exchange these for a size 8.
Love these boots. Most comfortable lace up boots I’ve ever had.
Mendelle Lace-Up Booties! I eyed these Sutro boots for about 6 months. I only own about ten pairs of shoes. I like quality and timeless options and these boots are it. The Redbrown color is deep and gorgeous. They are comfortable a half size smaller - as they suggested. My friend purchased a different pair of shoes from Sutro and they are her favorite to wear! Support this great company!
We've become a Sutro household New York City has everything- but they didn't have Sutro until we brought them here. These shoes are awesome style, quality, and comfort. Thanks!
They are perfect. The customer service was perfect. Will definitely be recommending the company. I only wish they would have sent me business cards to pass out. Thank you Candace!
I love these boots so much! I’ve worn them religiously since I got them a week ago. No break-in time needed — they fit like they were made for me, just like every Sutro shoe I’ve bought. Highly recommended!!
I swear these boots are one of the most gorgeous. They’re literally a work of art. Every detail is flawless, the craftsmanship is unbelievable, the feel of them from the fit, the quality of leather, to the outsole is just mind blowing. I feel like every other pair of shoes I’ve ever owned are inferior. My standards for footwear are blown after experiencing these boots. They’re incredible and I even left them out of the box just to stare at them in enjoyment. Absolutely Stunning.
I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of lace up boots and these are it! Perfect hight, perfect color, great fit! I love them and I will be wearing them forever! *I wear an 8.5-9 and went for the 8.5 and they are perfect.
These boots are everything I have wished for and more. The mahogany looks extremely elegant and pairs perfectly with everything. I liked it more than the honey color. Also I wanted a boot that didn't look like a combat boot, thus making me feel like an adolescent. I have been searching for the perfect boot and this is it! Finally, I am a 6.5, but also ordered a size 7, just in case, but it's true to size, so the best fit was the 6.5.
Love these boots! Amazing quality. That smell though
I am in love with all my sutros. And these mendelles are my favorite. extremely comfortable and beautiful. I already want a second pair and keep coming back and looking to see if they are up. LOVE them.
Beautiful craftsmanship and true to color and size. These boots are so comfortable and I have received many compliments! Thank you for the quality footwear and thoughtful note included in my package, the gifted leather care bag sealed the deal for me. Amazing customer service!
I was looking for a classic, no frills boot that I could make last. Everything nowadays has a zipper, or a fringe, or some other stupid detail that will be outdated in 3 months. Was very happy with the understated classic-ness of these. I was a little nervous about how much money I was spending, but the internet told me "good year welt" was worth the money, so I decided to try it. Upon receipt, I could immediately tell the difference between these and the cheaper ($40-$70) boots I had been buying previously. These are so comfortable and I have been getting a ton of compliments. I've been wearing them everyday for about two weeks and while they are definitely "breaking in" they don't look worn or damaged at all. I'm very excite about the quality. The only thing I don't like about them is the inside bottom is not fully secured, so pulling my foot in or out sometimes makes the lining roll a bit. I don't think this would happen if I fully unlaced the boot to take my foot out though, so if you care about your shoes more than I do, it would probably be fine. Now my only wish is that they made more styles! 10/10 would recommend.
Thank you Sutro! I have been on the hunt for reasonably priced and well made lace-ups without any unnecessary frills, and I was starting to doubt such a thing existed (especially for women...) I am not someone with a thousand pairs of shoes- when I buy shoes I am looking for something that can match everything and will hold up for city walking and working alike. These are the perfect boots for utilitarian women like myself, who just want a quality pair of lace-ups! They are so beautiful and I've been so pleased with them.
Very stylish and comfortable!
Love them! They're so comfy and fashionable.
I love the color, shape and feel of the boot! I'm sorry that it doesn't have a pull-on loop. Looking forward to having it totally broken in!
This shoe is the perfect fit! So comfortable yet stylish! A little hard to get into! Some of the seams are coming off slighly, so I’m just cutting it off.
I stumbled onto Sutro after searching through some other sites and not being happy with the styles they offered. I ordered this shoe within minutes of finding it. It was exactly what I wanted. I normally wear I size 6, but wanted to be able to wear thicker socks with them so I ordered a 6.5. Fits wonderfully and looks beautiful. They also included a sweet handwritten note. Thanks!
Runs true to size! I was a little worried about that when ordering, as I didn't know where to look on the site for sizing guidelines, but I can easily wear thin to medium thick socks. I've been wearing my pair for a couple of weeks, and they just get more beautiful with wear. They go with almost everything, too- I haven't come across an outfit yet that doesn't look 10x cooler with these boots. These are exactly what I was looking for: fashionable, sturdy, comfortable, fair price point, and ethical. Can't thank you guys enough!
After a long wait for these to be restocked, I was lucky enough to snag a pair. I wear a 7.5 and the fit was perfect! I was even sent a $25 gift card. Thank you! Love my Sutros!
First pair of Sutro. Would like to purchase more.
The shoes are beautiful, but I will be exchanging them because they run WAY small! I am a solid size 8, and will definitely be needing to go up a size. Also there is no return label so that means I am going to have to pay to return shoes that should have fit me perfectly.
they fit way better than the black ones that I got. I still like the first version that you all sold 3 years ago. I still have those - I forgot what the name of the boot was but I've gotten them resouled twice and those are still my favs.
So cute and comfortable This boot is really well made and fits like a glove. The only tiny criticism I would have is that in back there is not a tab to help with getting th me boot on although it is split in back. Just have to unlace pretty far to get them on. Really soft leather and they are extremely comfortable.
Je les adore !
These boots are lovely, exactly what I was looking for in a nice flat profile that would stand up to extended city walking. If you have a high instep, you already know the hassle of getting your foot into a boot--these are no different, but it's certainly worth the extra labor. They're very comfortable (have a narrow foot and regularly take an 8.5) and the mahogany color is so versatile. I look forward to wearing and caring for these for years to come.
Love, love, love these boots! They are exactly what I was looking for. They fit and fell great. Very well made.
I absolutely love these boots! I have searched everywhere for boots that wear in quick and are comfortable from the start. I also wanted a woman’s boot that did not have a zipper. And oh my goodness, the smell of these lovely boots! Will definitely be buying boots from Sutro again.
I'm not sure the difference between this an redbrown but i just received them and i can already tell they are going to be my new favorites. The leather smells amazing - a sure sign of some beautiful aging i'm sure!
I only own a few other pairs of boots like these and these are by far the best pair i own in all aspects. I'm not an expert but i could just tell right off the bat these were well made. I didn't expect it from what it looks like online but it's amazing! And i love the richness of color. Its so pretty!
I ordered a half size up because i want to wear thick socks in the winter with them. They fit great even without the thick socks now. Love them!
The laces can be a little tough to get on at first but once you get your foot in it fits perfectly. Love the color so much
Beautiful boot! Can't wait for the honey to come in!
