Went with a half-size bigger and they fit perfect. Wore them at a speaking event and all eyes were on me, ha.
I will first of all state that Sarah, in our emails and phone conversations, went well beyond the norm to answer my questions and make sure I knew as much about the the boot as possible prior to the purchase of my first pair of Ranch Road boots - the Calhoun Cognac style. Thank you Sarah. I received the boots a week ago (08/01/19). I was very satisfied with their appearance out of the box. I have worn these boots both on the street and in the dirt over the first week. They are comfortable and easy to get on and off. The length is true to the size that I normally wear in an American and/or Mexican made boot but the heel is a bit looser than I had hoped. I anticipate that the heel will conform and loose some of the slip with more use, as I have experienced with my other brands of boots. The boot shaft, instep, and vamp fit my legs and feet very well. After a few days of wear, I treated the leather with a quality Neatsfoot oil and to my surprise and disappointment the application dauber absorbed some of the leather dye from the boots and when dry it was apparent the boots were lighter in their color giving them a more used look. Initially, I am very satisfied with these boots and can add more comment in a few months.

In response to another review that says these are better than Lucchese boots, I don't know about quality so I won't address it (both are great quality), but the Lucchese fit is real. Lucchese boots feel like a 2nd skin, these do not grip on the bridge of the foot like Lucchese boots. That is my main disappointment with these boots and the reason I will probably buy another pair of Lucchese boots next. Also these are larger in the calf than I had hoped. I am tall and very thin, so I can't hold that against the brand, it's one of my fitment struggles.
All great. Price ,delivery,and the boots are the best I ever had. Fit perfectly and smell like the real thing
They both look and feel great, while being not too heavy at all. Well built and stitched, these look like they will last a very long time.
Sadly, I returned these boots through no fault of the boot. Due to a horse injury 6 years ago my pelvis is very finicky about how my feet land and for some reason, these boots did not work in that department. They were soft on the sole which I loved.
I wanted to wear them for a bit before I wrote a review. Now that they’re broken in, I love these boots. They’re comfortable, good looking, and strong. If you are looking to be comfortable in boots, buy these. If you’re looking to be cool in boots, buy these. In other words, buy these boots. You’ll thank me.
I purchased Capistrano Black in size 8.5. They are beautiful to see and wear. True to size. Old time quality for a reasonable price.
This is my second pair of boots from you all. Comfort, quality and style. These boots have it all. Customer service is friendly and efficient with rapid responses to all queries. Payment options make picking the boots you want a breeze. Tracking information and updates on orders creates worry free shipping. Your company and boots are top notch. Thank you.
I’m celebrating the one-year Anniversary of my owning of your “Earl style” boot. From the day that they came out of the shipping box
to now, these are the most comfortable dress boots I’ve ever owned. I’m impressed by the value inherent in the pair I bought, and sort-of wish that I had a reason to purchase another pair now. They wear SO well and still present so well that I look forward to purchasing a few pair... don’t know when that might be.
I love them and have had many compliments on them. They are comfortable and true to size. I need to find a cute dress to wear them with to show off the gorgeous heel. I highly recommend them!!!
I'm surprised to see these get anything less than 5 stars. I'm writing this review over a year from the date of purchase (1/2018). These boots feel great (order a half size down), are comfortable for long walks in the woods or city streets, look GREAT and work with any pant with a 14.5" opening or larger. Thus, they can be worn with quite slim jeans (Levi's 511). They have held up GREAT. No work from the cobbler has been necessary despite daily wear.
These boots far exceeded my expectations. Looks that kill and quality to last.
I purchased a pair of Capistrano's about 9 months ago. I wear these boots every day. They're amazing. Durable, comfortable, good lookin'...Hands down, best pair of boots I've ever owned. I even wore them last weekend on a trip to Denver and spent the better part of two whole days stomping around downtown in them when my better half insisted I wear tennis shoes to better suit all of the mileage we were gonna cover. I endured with zero complaint and so did the boots. Just wanted to say thanks for making such a great product. It's also pretty badass that a lady is running the show over there...Keep up the good work, I'm sure I'll be shopping again soon for a different style or, if the day comes, when the Capistrano's finally wear out.Cheers. -TD
Comfortable, good looking boots. I bought them to work with horses. The quality is good, they should hold up.
I’m extremely pleased with my recent purchase. I would recommend these boots for their style, quality, and comfort.
Kind a hard to review I have fallen in love with my first pair of branch Road boots so I haven’t been wearing the new pair much but as of now I’m very pleased with their customer service is very very good that pretty often you could talk to the owner of the company or have her return your call very pleased sure wish I could get a sale going on in the booth say Bike$ first and then black but it might not work out with that style but I think of enough people request it they’ll figure out how to dive the creep Soul
I am wearing them right now and never want to take them off. I am a Lucchese boot supporter and these boots are right up there if not better. The rubber injected sole patches are genius and make these boots even more comfortable. Thank you Sarah Ford for your service and your boots!
I’m extremely pleased with the Carson boots I purchased. The boot is true to size and fits great. I will definitely be buying my next pair from Ranch Road Boots!
