    I was excited to see the reviewers for this boot talk about how big the calf opening was - I have a lot of trouble getting boots that fit well in the calf. I have had good luck with Born brand boots, but most normal boots are too small on the widest part of my calf, and the one time I got boots sold specifically for larger calves, the boot shafts were way too large. I hoped these would be perfect in the calves, but when they arrived I was unpleasantly surprised to find that they were actually too narrow in the upper calf. I had to take them to a cobbler and get them stretched before wearing them, and they will only fit over tights, not over skinny jeans. I'm hoping they'll stretch out more as I wear them, which the cobbler assured me they will. Other than that issue, I like them a lot. They are a perfect fit (I wear a 9M) and feel very stable and comfortable when I'm walking.

    Just so ladies with similar calves can have the specific info:

    I believe the boot shaft is specified as 15.6" in circumference. There is no elastic gusset. My calves are 17" at the widest part, and now that the boots are stretched they are about the same.

    I bought these boots after reading some feedback about them in a magazine. I wear a 6.5, been wearing these a lot!!
    I would say initially I was really happy with the fit, but over time the fit loosens. So maybe the feedback you read online is right go a half size smaller?
    I really LOVE them regardless of that. The leather still looks new and holds up great in all weather types. Super easy to walk around in, and very safe (this is not the kinda heel your going to twist your ankle in). I'm an outdoor girl and I travel a lot. This works with my lifestyle.

    This is like your winter alternative to the Teva sandals.
    BTW these are very stylish

    Received the boot on Friday. I ordered it in black -looks very stylish; the leather is the "oiled" texture that isn't shiny and looks a bit like suede but isn't suede... However when I tried them on I was disappointed that the shaft of the boot is loose on me (measured my calf before I bought it). And while the boots look very nice with jeans or leggings, the shaft is too loose. I prefer a snug fit. I'm probably about average with average legs (based on observation).

    The boot itself is comfortable - heel is just the right height; good amount of padding. Could see wearing these all day and being comfortable. I bought the 7.5 size and it's just a hair large on me - thick socks made the fit in the foot perfect. Thick socks were not enough to "snug up" the boot shaft - I can stick my fingers easily inside the boot top. If only they were a little more snug - they'd be perfect. Love the way they look - seem like they'd be quite warm in winter, also.

    Unfortunately, they are going back until I can find a boot that fits the way I like.

    these boots are fantastic!!! first, the leather. it's sort of a softer type of leather as if you're holding a very soft piece of cowhide-- the inside is black & very soft, like a true piece of leather. the top edges are very soft and thin. it lays very smooth and comfortably on the leg. i usually wear a sz 7 in boots, altho sometimes a 6.5 is enough. here the 6.5 is more than enough so bear that in mind, even tho everyone's foot runs different. btw, the sizing applies to the foot part as well as the leg. for those who are looking for a really tight snug fit around the calves, they werent like that on me, but they werent unshapely either. meaning, they are very slightly loose along the leg (even tho i took the smaller sz) but they look great on the leg-- they have a shape to it, so i love them! i tried them with tights but with pants they'd probably have a snugger fit. i havent worn them yet. ohh & the wedge! OMG what could be better? you get the height if you want it, but it's as comfy and no wobbliness yay! the toe box is round in case you cant see that clearly, so no shmushed toes. i just adore these boots, but the leather takes the cake, it has some lines running thru the it like a raw piece of leather- i love it. it's a matter of taste tho. i think it gives it a bit of edge. they're not clunky looking on me at all. very trendy while still being so comfy & lightweight too. this line is a hit.

    I purchased the Slate Black, instead of Black, because I wanted a dark brown boot. It turns out that these are nearly black, probably charcoal. I like how they fit and I will keep them, but they were not the color I was hoping for.

    Very cute, seemingly warm with nice fit. They are a bit big through the calf and ankles, but I kept them anyway because their overall style and fit is so nice. I do have pretty long and scrawny legs, so I expect most ladies would like a little extra room in the legs. These will be the perfect boots for Fall and Spring when it is still cold and sloppy outside, but not below zero, as it is now in Minnesota! They have very little insulation, but with some toasty socks you could get away with wearing them in sub zero temps, if you didn't have to walk a great distance. I wore them out to dinner in -10 weather and I was perfectly warm walking from car to restaurant etc. Can't wait for that Spring thaw! I think these boots will really be great in the sloppy urban mud.
