I find these to be very uncomfortable and run small. I wore them one time and cannot wear them for an entire day.
Beautiful and ethical!

I love these booties! It makes me happy to have a pair of such stylish shoes that are also ethically made. People notice the uniqueness of the shoe and they are very comfortable! I hope they will last a long long time.
Runs VERY Narrow

I have wanted to order the Espe boots for over a year and finally gave in and bought them. They are lovely in person. When I first tried them I could hardly get my foot in them with the thinnest socks I own. I have very narrow feet, and these boots are extremely tight on me. I’ve worn them a few times with thicker socks, but they don’t seem to be loosening up. If they will stretch as other reviewers mentioned, I anticipate them to be very comfortable. Maybe a shoe stretcher would help.
FAVORITE BOOTS EVER!

I can't say enough awesome things about these boots! I cannot wear them out of the house without getting several compliments a day or having people stop me in the streets to ask where I got them. I was a bit worried when I first got them because they were a little stiff, but after a few wears they have 'molded' perfectly to my feet and are super comfortable. I wear them with anything and everything and love them. They're incredibly well made and wear well - not like other boots I've purchased in the past (not from Root Collective) that start to fall apart and they get better and better with each wear.
Great Shoe, Zipper Issues
Posted by Ellen smith on 3rd Nov 2017
These shoes are GORGEOUS. They are sturdy and comfortable. I normally wear a 7.5 so I sized up to an 8. They feel a little too large, but I'm sure a 7 would have been too small. I love the shoes, however I have an issue with the zipper on the left boot. It will not stay zipped! Every time I zip it up, as soon as I take a few steps it falls halfway down my ankle. Has anyone else had issues with the zipper?
Love, love, LOVE THESE SHOES

I absolutely love these shoes! They were my first pair from The Root Collective. At first the leather was pretty stiff but after wearing them two or three times with wool socks they softened up. They are now the most comfortable shoes ever! They weren’t even that bad to begin with but now they are AMAZING! I recommend you buy these shoes. I was hesitant at first but I don’t regret it at all. By far my favorite pair of boots ever!
Hard to stop wearing these

I wasn't sure if I wanted to splurge on these. But I did and I don't regret it for a second. Not only are they beautiful, but are super comfortable (after a month or so of breaking them in). I went a half size up (since they don't have half sizes) and that seems to be the perfect fit. They're the type of purchase that I use so often, I'm not quite sure what I wore before.
Most Comfortable Booties Ever
Posted by Emily on 7th Nov 2016
After years of dancing and destroying my feet I have a hard time finding shoes that don't hurt. I can't speak highly enough of these booties and how comfortable they are. Someone today literally followed me around the market to ask where I bought them because she loved them so much.

It took about two months from order to arrival for these - and the verdict is that they are totally worth it! They are absolutely gorgeous and SO comfortable. I love this brand and am so pleased with this purchase. Definitely recommend.
