  1. The black is beautiful, but I’d go with chestnut. I don’t have a pair in that color yet.

  2. I pretty much always go for cognac, but there’s something about the chestnut that’s just calling my name!

  3. Cuoio, please! I’ve never owned a non-black pair of boots…I think I’m ready to try something different!

  4. All three are so gorgeous but I would go with the Cuoio. I feel like they are so different from what I own and would be a wonderful way to elevate some of the existing fall pieces in my wardrobe.

  5. I’ve never won anything before on these giveaways, but I hope I do this time! These are amazing! Cuoio for sure! Fingers crossed!

  6. They’re all beautiful, but I think I’d go for Chestnut, as I don’t have any boots in that color. Thanks for doing this!

  7. Cuoio. I’ve been looking for a simple pair of boots for a while, and these are lovely.

  8. I’m having a hard time deciding between black and chestnut!!! If I HAD to choose one, I guess I’d go with black.

  9. I would live in the Cuoio color! Perfect with everything-such a classic color! Also very hard to find a lighter brown color that’s as gorge as this one! Good luck everyone! 🙂

  10. Chestnut is wonderful, but I love them all so it’s hard to decide! One of each, maybe? 😉 Thank you!

  11. I’ve wanted all three colors for ages, but if I could only have one I’d pick the Cuoio!

  12. Definitely the Cuoio! I passed on similar boots years ago and am still regretting it. Would love the second chance!

  13. I adore Loeffler Randall shoes but they are so entirely out of my price range right now (grad student, etc)… I love the Cuoio leather but would probably get them in the black instead – more versatile with my wardrobe. Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. Gorgeous boots! My first reaction is to pick the black ones, but there is just something about that chestnut color that I can’t resist, so chestnut it is.

  15. All three colors are great! However, I would go with black since my current black ones are looking a little sad after that brutal winter in Chicago (salt + slush + leather just dont go together!). Replacing them with the LR beauties would be wonderful!

  16. I’ve been looking for a new black boot – and these are it… black for me!
    Thanks Joy!
    xo, Ellie

  17. Beautiful! They would be a great replacement for my very worn riding boots. I would pick the Cuoio!

  18. Oh man, please let it be me! I’ve had my eye on these boots for soooo long! If I were lucky enough to win, I’d choose the cuoio, same as you! Fingers and toes are crossed for this one!

  19. I would definitely choose black. I already have a pair of chestnut Frye boots that I love!

  20. I loved the way you styled this outfit! Totally cute for fall.
    I’d have to go with black, but they’re all so great! Tough decision.

  21. I’d choose Chestnut! Browns have been my thing this autumn. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway! 🙂

  22. I would love to have a “nice” pair of boots for once! I think I would choose the black. I love the contrast between the black leather and the brown sole. So pretty.

  23. This is perfect timing because the heel of my beloved cognac boot fell off in the airport a couple weeks ago! I clunked my way all over Boston! I would love to replace my old boots with the Cuoio boots! They would perfect for this fall and winter.

  24. It’s the perfect boot for city walking. This Brooklyn Mama would have to go with black. Thanks!

  25. These boots are lovely! I’m drawn to the Cuoio color, with Chestnut coming in at a close second!

  26. Ooooohhh! I love these boots, and all three colors are perfect. If I win this giveaway, and must only pick one, I’d pick the Cuoio color.

  27. Chestnut or black. I already have two pairs of boots in the cuoio color. I’m a tad obsessed with boots!

  28. You must need help getting these off with your baby belly, Joy! I’m sure it’s challenging without a zipper, so I feel for you. I say black!

  29. I am a Florida transplant living in NYC, and it’s my goal to finally get some real boots this year (after 9 years!), so I would dip my toe into the boot world with the basic black!

  30. My wardrobe is based on black and white, so I’d love the black ones. I haven’t got boots for this fall/winter yet.

  31. I’d be ecstatic with any of them- such gorgeous boots! If I were lucky enough to win, I’d have to pick black or cuoio!

  32. Such beautiful boots with a classic shape. I love the rich chestnut color best. Owning such a luxurious pair would be an absolute dream!

  33. I’ve been needing black boots for a while, but I don’t think I could resist the Cuoio!

  34. Ahhh, so beautiful! I’ve been hunting for a black boot for awhile and these would be perfect. Love the simplicity.

  35. I live in the frigid north of Minnesota so I go through boots so quickly! I’d pick Cuoio—such a classic color of leather. Thanks for the giveaway, Joy and Loeffler Randall!

  36. I love a good fall boot and is one of the things I look most forward to when the season rolls around in Illinois. 🙂 I would love the Black vachetta leather! Beautiful boots! 🙂

  37. I *adore* Loeffler Randall boots! I’d pick the chestnut color, but that’s only because I already have a pair of boots in cuoio. 🙂

  38. I’m a lifelong Loeffler lover! I’d go for the Chestnut – the color would wear so beautifully over time.

  39. Chesnut for the win! (Size 7.5–If I win, I’ll save you the step of asking!) Good luck everyone!

  40. Chestnut is my favorite!! Loeffler Randall has great qualities and I love all their bags as well!

  41. Ooh – that’s a tough choice.. I think I’d go with the rich warmth of Cuoio, although the elegance and simplicity of Black is a very close second!

  42. Wow, those are beautiful. Cuoio is just so warm and looks like it would go with everything!

  43. These are beautiful! I am always on the look for the perfect boot and this is one that you can wear year-round! Cuoio is my favorite, such a beautiful color!!

  44. I am in love with these boots. I would get the Cuoio color for sure!!!! love love love love.

  45. I’m greedy, why can’t I have one in each color? If I’m forced to choose of the three, I would pick the buttery Cuoio boots.

  46. These are gorgeous. The perfect boot! I’d go with cuoio! Thanks for doing this giveaway 🙂

  47. Gonna follow in a Joy kinda way and go with the cuoio boot. I can’t believe they actually make a 10 1/2! No one EVER makes my size! Do they run small/large Goldilocks “just right”?

  48. Oh definitely the chestnut! I’m on a chocolate brown kick this fall and those would be the perfect addition to my closet!

  49. knowing they would last forever, i would pick the color that never goes out of style – black! (i also love when black boots have a brown heel/sole, like these do.)

  50. ugh! the black has that amazing zipper up the back…… and i know id have them forever…..
    but i dont have a pair of boots in the Cuoio color yet… so, im going with those…. final answer….

  51. Oh I hope it’s my lucky day on Friday! I would love the black – it’s a staple and I’m in need of a good black boot! Thanks!

  52. Ooh, so hard to choose but I think the classic black! Many thanks, from one Joy to another! 🙂

  53. What a generous give away! They’re all beautiful, but I would love a pair in the cuoio! Lovely!

  54. Looking to replace my boots that I deatroyes in many New York City winters, and these are beyond perfect! I have no luck, but maybe this time it will work out with the chestnut!! Crossing fingers!

  55. These boots are perfect! Classic, clean-lined, and effortless. My favorite is the Cuoio vachetta leather. It’s like the perfect marriage of camel and carmel that will look good with everything.

  56. Cuoio! I love pairing that color with both blacks and browns. I’m a stickler for versatility!

  57. Hi Joy!
    I would totally get them in black. I love Loeffler Randall what a great giveaway!

  58. Such lovely boots! I’m torn between the Cuoio and the Chestnut… I think Chestnut, to better hide the scuffs and scrapes that would come from me wearing them as much as possible 🙂

  59. Cuoio! It’s versatile enough for any outfit. I could never afford these boots otherwise. Beautiful website too!

  60. I would love to show off my stylish Boots…in Cuoio, please…..walking down Michigan Ave!!

  61. I’ve never wanted to win a contest more! Ive had my eye on the merit boots in black since they came out. I’ve always admired loeffler Randall shoes but just have never pulled the trigger.

  62. Id pick the Cuoio. I love Loeffler Randall and had a pair for almost 8 years before I had to say goodbye. Now I am pregnant and looking for the perfect pair to rock this fall. Love them!

  63. Wow, what an awesome giveaway! Thanks oh joy!!
    They are all fabulous color, but I would go with black…..but I really like the cuoio and chestnut also. Haha, if I really won I would love for you to surprise me. You can’t go wrong with any color!
    Have a great day!

  64. black black, always black! Owning something Loeffler Randall has been on my dream list for a LONG time. You’re the best for doing this!!

  65. Pick me! Pick me! Cuoio is so pretty! And love the look you’re wearing with them. Love a good sweater dress. Adorbs.

  66. Beautiful, timeless style, I’d have to go with the chestnut! Thank you for offering the giveaway!

  67. Chestnut!!! I’ve loved these boots for a long time, the shape and quality of the leather make them the perfect boot!

  68. I love Loeffler Randall! I have several Matilde boots but would love to try the Marit in Chestnut!!

  69. This is the boot I’ve been searching for in my equestrian chic dreams. <3 I pick black! 🙂

  70. Definitely would pick the Cuoio!! They are so beautiful!! And would go with anything!! Great giveaway, as usual!

  71. These boots look so well made and are simply beautiful. I would love to add the Cuoio to my wardrobe!

  72. I love Cuoio, but I do already own a pair of boots in a very similar color, so I guess I would have to go with chestnut!

  73. Great boot. Cuoio! It goes with anything! And I especially love that he makes size 5 in these awesome boots.

  74. Cuoio! Goes with black and brown and everything in between. I’d love to replace my $30 cheap, everyday boots with a pair of lifetime boots!

  75. I LOVE loeffler Randall! Thank you or this awesome giveaway. I love the cuoio but would go with the black! I just love the black leather with the lighter sole color.

  76. I need a pair of flat black books (I am 5’11” ) so I would have to choose black. Plus I LOVE the look of this boot in black!

  77. These boots have the perfect shape. I love them all, but the Cuoio comes out on top for me! Great giveaway, thanks!

  78. Oh my goodness!! These are to die for! I would choose the chestnut!! thanks for the opportunity! 🙂

  79. Why would you promote $700 boots? Priorities wrong. If you’re smart, find good brands on amazon and buy in the off season.

  80. OH I could so use these! Just retired my 3 year old boots and I need a replacement. Would totally pick the Cuoio color

  81. If I won I’d pick the Marit Boot- Chestnut!! Thanks so much Joy. This is perfect for the winter… and for the rest of my life

  82. I have been lusting after Loeffler Randall everything for so long! I would love the “cuoio” color.

  83. I love that outfit, gotta go with cuoio! My boots in that color got ruined last year 🙁

  84. I’ve always wanted knee high boots (never had one before). Calves were chubby, but now that I lost weight, this would be amazing! Cuoio would be so wonderful!

  85. I would have to choose black. Can’t go wrong with a classic boot in a classic color that you can wear with just about anything.

  86. Boots are a favorite part of fall for me too! I love the rich brown of the Chestnut boots. Seriously dreamy and perfect for crunching over fall leaves in while sipping a hot cider.

  87. The Cuoio vachetta leather is the most beautiful caramel color which would go with anything and reminds me of my favorite ice cream, Salted Caramel!

  88. I LOVE the black ones! At five foot ten I always look for boots with no heel, and being pregnant in the snowy Northeast makes this even more important!

  89. love love love these in cuoio! I think I’d end up wearing them every single day! they’re gorgeous!

  90. I know I have no chance at this, but those boots are so beautiful I figured, what the hey! why not? gotta go with the black on this because black is so classic!

  91. This is a great giveaway! I’ve been wearing the same boots for 3 years. So, I’d choose Cuoio for a great change & fresh fall style.

  92. I would love to have the Cuoio color! It goes with everything and I would wear it ALL THE TIME. 🙂

  93. Since I already have a favorite black flat boot, I’d go with the chestnut. But really I’d be thrilled to get any color.

  94. I have loved these boots for so long and ALWAYS wanted a pair! So hard to pick between black and cuio but I would go with black 🙂

  95. As much as I love the cuoio, I think I would have to go with the black… they would look so effortlessly classic with almost anything!

  96. Love these boots! Hard to decide but I’ve been searching for a great pair of black boots so I’d have to go with those. Thanks!

  97. They are all gorgeous, but I think I would go for the chestnut color. Would love to have these to help me feel a little more pulled together after my baby comes in mid-november!

  98. This couldn’t be better timing, as my brown boots are completely worn out and the zipper just broke! I would love a new pair in Cuoio! Thank you 🙂

  99. Oh my gosh Joy, this is the best!! I would choose black – these are my dream pair. Coincidence? I think not! (Fingers crossed!)
    P.S. – can’t wait to meet Baby number 2!! I’m so excited for you and your beautiful family 🙂

  100. I have literally never owned a pair of black boots. It’s that hard for me to find a pair I like! On the flip side, it’s problematic how many brown pairs I own.
    But these! The perfect, sleek, simple black boot!

  101. Love your mama style! I love these boots so much!! And I need boots so badly!! Fall in Virginia horse country, it’s a must. If I won, the cuoio color would be perfect! Rock on lovely lady!
