Hard to find wide calf over the knee boots. Love these, wish they were leather but good quality. Little narrow in width but not enough to return, might stretch with thick socks, but true to actual size. Over all very satisfied.

Great boots! I have fuller calves and didn't think tall boots were something I could get, and I was wrong! It was a little intimidating buying boots online, but the measurements were right, and when I got them, they fit perfectly! They are stylish and on-trend, the side zipper makes putting them on easy, and the detailing gives some interest. They could be a little more cushioned, I don't know if I'd wear them and be standing up all day, but they aren't uncomfortable. Plenty of room in the toe, I ordered a half size up and they fit perfectly!

Boots are beautiful on, as long as you don't look too closely at the workmanship. Also, if you want a taupe colored boot, this is not it. They are definitely brown; the color in the photograph is misleading. The color is an attractive medium brown and I would have kept them anyway if they were not so horribly uncomfortable. I took 3 steps in them on carpet and had to get them off - they felt like tight wooden shoes. There is no padding in the sole and the upper is not flexible (the shaft of the boot is flexible though). I wear a 7 1/2 medium and the boots felt quite narrow around the base of my toes, which is the widest part of my foot - if your feet are narrow in that area, you will probably be fine. They are not leather so I don't think they will "give" or conform to my feet. So sad, but I am returning these.

These shoes are adorable in person! They don't have great traction, plus they are a little higher than I expected, I was sad to have to send them back! I wish they were made in a lower heel!

I love these boots! I've been looking for a long time to find the perfect black boots for my calves. I have about an 18 inch calf and wear size 10, these boots fit perfectly! Slightly slouchy with a great height. The hidden half zipper looks great and they even fit well with skinny jeans. I usually don't do reviews, but when doing my research, it was really hard to find accurate information about the circumference, many complaints about width, but no info on sizing. Most important thing to know is what size they are measuring from. For me, size 10 fits 18 inch. The circumference does generally increase with shoe size, if you wear a size 7 and have 18 inch calves, these will not work. At first, they weren't very comfy on the foot, but after about 20 minutes I felt I could wear them all day, and did! Went shopping all over with these boots and felt so trendy and stylish! Definitely so happy with this purchase.

I really like these boots - the style is great, and they are pretty comfy. Unfortunately, the workmanship is so shoddy that I'm returning them. The edges of the material stick up at the zipper seams, the glue is visible where the shoe meets the sole, the stripes on the heels are uneven, the seams of the straps are uneven and look untidy. I would have kept these if they'd cost $20 or $30, but at this price, this level of quality is unacceptable. These boots look cheap.

I was so disappointed that the inside did not feel as good as the outside of the boot looked. The heel felt plastic on the inside and there was no fabric over it so the inside of the boot did not feel like it was all one piece. These boots are so fabulous looking it was a real bummer to have to return them.

I wear a 6½ because I have wide feet and order up half a size. My calf measures 15¾". I could not get these boots up over my calfs. Sadly these boots went back! I have yet to find wide calf boots in size 6½ that fits over my calfs!

These boots look fabulous but they ran a little small. The wider shaft was a perfect fit. I wear an 8½ but would probably have to go to a 9 in these boots.

I ordered the wide-calf version and prepared myself for what I was sure was inevitable -- having to return them because the shaft would be too small. They arrived in just a couple of days. I pulled them out of the box and was so pleased with how well they had been presented on the website. I just loved them! Then I held my breath when I tried them on. And...they fit with room to spare! I can even tuck my jeans inside. There is a strap and buckle at the top that allows you to expand it for more room or cinch it up if you want a snug fit. I am so happy with these boots! I typically wear a wide width but they only come in standard width, so I ordered an 8.5 which is a half-size larger and they fit perfectly!

Loved the look of these, but it didn't take long for them to get scuffed. Shoe polish cleans it up well at least. Didn't take long for the cheap rubber heel to wear either (I tend to walk more on the outer edges of my heel. Took them to a cobbler and he replaced the heels and now they're strong as ever. Also, a big issue with these is that the inner lining ripped at the back of the heel which so my heel gets caught on it when I take them off, and it feels funny while wearing them. Would ONLY buy again if they were on clearance for maybe less.

Such a unique spin on an evening shoe. My boyfriend said it reminded him of Catching Fire...we are in our 30's and that still made me excited. They are very comfortable for a heel, not too high of a heel at all, and I loved looking down at them. So different from other's shoes. Nice, fun way to dress up a more simple dress too. Highly recommend! True to size.

I wanted this shoe to work, I loved the style. Length was perfect but there was way to much room around the ankle and heel. The area around the toe was a little big. But the style and color were perfect, hated to return!

Absolutely love these boots! Got them in the mail, and they are just a little too small! Disappointed they aren't available in a size 9. So I am returning them.

These are definitely some of the most tastefully feminine-looking boots I have ever seen. I love the way they look! Regarding fit, I struggle with boots as I have large calves - 18" inches with pants on. I ordered several other pairs of wide-calf boots to try and these were the only ones that fit! They are snug in the leg which I expected, but the 3/4 zipper definitely helps and is a unique bonus to these boots. I usually wear a size 8.5 shoe and the 8.5 felt slightly large in the toe area to me, but the 8 was on the snug side, so I stuck with the 8.5. And the price is very reasonable! All in all a great purchase.

These are great looking boots, and very comfortable (except my right foot is a big squeezed, but I think that's my foot's fault). They look so much like real leather that I'm tempted to tell people they're not, and that they can wear beautiful cowboy boots without anyone having to die. I bought them to wear to a wedding in Nashville and they looked great with my dress. Now I wear them over jeans, to great effect. I have big feet but slim legs, and these boots aren't too baggy in the calf area. I'm very pleased with them!

I love these boots. I have wide calves and they have plenty of room. Maybe a bit extra at the top but I have worn them several times already and they look and feel great!

Love these boots, the only thing is they were a little darker than pictured (more of a chocolate brown) but they will still go with plenty of outfits. I am 5'4" and was worried about how tall they might be but they came up to JUST below the knee which was perfect.

I love this boot, it has a true fit and I can walk natural because the boot is not stiff. The softness of the boot is unbelievable and I will buy another pair in a different color. The price is spot on.

I have such a hard time finding boots that fit - I have finally found another pair! They fit my 17inch calves with perfect amt of room to spare - I wore them with jeans the other day. They are well made and the chain etc. is different - they don't look like every other boot. The ankles don't bunch up and even if the ankle is a little loose on you, the chain thing will hide that. Very happy with them, considering getting the other two colors because it is so rare for me to find a quality wide calf boot. Sizing was right on.

I really wanted these to fit. They were cute and stylish which is hard to find in my large size. I have a slightly wider foot and can usually fit into most size 11 shoes without having to order a Wide in them. I kind of figured that a "Wide Shaft" boot would have been a bit wider in the toe area than these were. These were nearly painful...I only tried one on because they were so narrow there was no point in trying them both on. They were true to size in length. Sadly I will be returning them. They are cute; I just would not recommend if you have a wide foot.
