If you are looking for comfy tall boots that fit wide feet along with big calves, then look no further because these boots are it. I am 5'5 weigh 178lbs and have calves that measure 15.5-16 inches. These boots fit nicely on (bare skin with ankle socks) but fit snug when I am wearing skinny jeans inside them. Hence since I know my jeans fit into these boots I know my tights or knee high socks will too. I have had such a hard time trying to find tall boots that fit my wide feet along with my big calves and the search is over, I am thinking whether to get the black ones as well. I bought mine in chocolate and they are true to color. LET ME WARN YOU THOUGH....the boots fit SNUG with my SKINNY jeans which I am wearing with ankle socks. I don't have any more room for anything else. So if you are trying to find snug boots around the calves, then these are the boots. The ankle area is not tight at all. There is room around them. I love the fact that they have zippers on the sides. It makes getting into them very easy. LOVE these boots!

Returning this boot because it looks cheap and of poor quality. I could see glue and a poor die job. Very disappointed. I want to replace Fitzwell boots purchased in '09.

The only good (wicked irony) thing that I can say about these is that they did actually zip all the way up around my giant 17 inch calves, and without a flared top pirate look. However, I wanted to wear them out, not just play in the snow. They are backed by yucky 1970's poly and the shaft is a glued on wrinkly plastic hybrid material of some sort. The whole thing has a molded galoshes feel. My 70 year old mom would like them for utilitarian use but they scream discount store wanna-be. Cheap.

Zappos is a wonderful way to shop without leaving your home. I ordered 5 pairs of boots, kept 2 pairs and returned the others. Returning is very easy which is a plus in my book. Thanks for your great service.

I love these boots! They are super comfortable and look great. They fit great over skinny jeans, but aren't too side to wear next to skin. I can wear them all day without any problem! I want to get them in another color.

Very cute boots and super comfortable. They definitely run big. I would order 1/2 size down from what you normally wear. I am going to reorder them in a 9 instead of a 10.

The details say these boots have a 17" calf. They don't come close to zipping over my 16.5" calf in the size 8 (with skinny jeans) while two other brands did zip with the same stated circumference.
