This shoe looks awesome. The rusted feel makes it look perfectly worn in. Think of the Roan Mike as the "ripped jeans" version of boots, in a grayish color. If that's your style, these boots are perfect for you. The shoes are really high top, so the laces go up quite high. This looks really good, but it's definitely harder to get in and out of. There's no question of sliding in and out of the shoes. I will also say this shoe runs a half size too large. I am consistently a size 10.5 across the board with almost every brand, but yet with this, 10.5 was much too big.

Just wished it came in all black as it would have been a lot easier to wear in more situations. Otherwise, it’s great. Nice tread, comfortable. Overall great.

These boots are great they look awesome on and my son loved them but they were first too big. He wears a 9 and we first ordered a 10 and they were too big then we got a 9 and they are a little big but still great. He loves them and feels they run a half size bigger thank you so much. It was very easy to purchase and return/exchange these boots from your website at Zappos thank you.

Bought these for my husband for Christmas and he loves them. We had to return the first pair for a 1/2 size smaller. Great fit and looks great. The return policy for Zappos was great, no issues in returning and received the new pair within 2 days.

I would of liked a little bit more width on the boot. I've only been wearing them for two days to break in.

I read other comments online to order one full size smaller than normal. I ended up ordering 1/2 size smaller and worked out great. They are very comfortable and seem to be of higher quality. Really enjoying.

I have rather narrow feet for my 11.5 size, and these boots while being true to size, are ridiculously narrow in the midsection. I wore them for a couple of minutes at home and figured that given the amount of discomfort they give, I would never be able to wear them in to my liking. Stylewise, the boots are fine. The suede side panels are lighter than those on the picture. Overall, if not the sizing issue, I would most likely kept them.

The fit is perfect. Super comfortable standing/walking with these soles and the cushy insoles provided. They look amazing and I'd say they look a lot more expensive than they are. I'm already preparing myself to stay humble and deflect the glory to Roan, when the many compliments start rolling in.

Very comfortable. Just size down one full size. All my other shoes from athletic to sport specific to dress to casual are a 10-10.5 but I had to go down to a 9 in these boots to get a great fit.

These are sweet! Love that they look all worn out and used. They are soft & comfortable. And a darned good price point!

Shoes were a little smaller than expected. The distressed was alright. They would go well with jeans and khakis.

Will need to size down at least a half size if not a full.

I bought these for my husband and he loves them. True to size. He is a 12 and I got him and 12 and he says perfect. He stands all day and walks around his office and he says they are comfortable.

Size, style and fit are all fine. Construction is horrible. I've had 2 pairs of these shoes and both pairs had the stitching break and the soles are separating from the leather uppers.

We ended up keeping the shoes because they look great, but they are a little uncomfortable and run small.

Love these boots, zipper is super helpful.
Zappos Reviewer on November 07, 2018
Soles are better than any other boat shoes I have had. Shoes look nice. Problem is the opening. The tongue of the shoe is very floppy - unlike my Sperry shoes. The remainder of the opening is not as stiff as the Sperry. What that means is this: With my Sperry shoes - which have stiff opening and double-walled stiff tongue, I can drop them to the floor and slip my feet in . With the Roan Bay by Roan shoes, on the other hand, it takes 2 hands to put the shoes on (vs. NO HANDS with my Sperrys). Then I have to keep pulling the tongue up all day. Plus the "black" shoes are actually grey.

these shoes are beautiful, BUT theyre very masculine and even felt like mens shoes (wider and longer) not a bad pair of shoes at all, I wanted to keep them but they really don't go with my style.
Zappos Reviewer on October 29, 2018
These boots fit well. Once tied up, you guessed it, just unzip that side zipper and out comes your foot (but of course you should loosen that top lace). These don't make your foot feel too big or bulky once on. The distressed look is perfect for jeans and roughing it up around town. 10/10 would buy again!
Ernie from Austin, TX on October 22, 2018
This is probably the most uncomfortable shoe I have ever worn. The back of the shoe digs into your achilles tendon, it is too tight, not true to size but hey it looks good! I’ll be sending this pair back ASAP!
Zappos Reviewer on April 23, 2018
I live in these boots! One of my favorite!
Zappos Reviewer on April 15, 2018
Love this shoe. Comfortable! Great with grey and black travelers by Banana Republic. Also look great with jeans. I have poor arches and can wear them all day.
Zappos Reviewer on April 14, 2018
These arrived today and I LOVE this look! Funny how I thought they'd be more "dress" though, like my eyes and brain just met. They run a touch snug with the foot pad in. Not sure of the trade off of taking them out yet (They're like pillows under my feet!). But this LOOK though!!

Good fit, but light on quality. Right foot had a small hole that let water in; had to seal myself. Left boot pull-up strap at back -- its stitching is ripping.
