I have never thought of my calves as big, but I guess with age they have gotten larger, as the regular calf model of this boot just barely zipped. As I want to wear some skinny jeans this fall, I decided to try these. They are a perfect fit. However, if you have truly large calves, beware--these aren't that much bigger than the regular style! The leather is beautiful, and I love the style. One boot is flawlessly constructed, the other is not, but I am hesitant to return them and try another pair--although I might! Frye--this is for you. I am disappointed to see these are Imported. These are pretty darned expensive boots. I would expect them to be USA made at this price point. The dark brown color is fabulous. I can't wait to wear them.

Be warned. "Extended calf" does not equal "Wide Calf"! I just received these boots and they are stunning, the redwood is such an elegant color, and the construction is amazing. They fit me perfectly, snug on the calf and no excessive ankle bunching like what happens in many riding boots I have tried on. I will wear these for years and years, they will be swiftly incorporated into my winter uniform of boots, skinny jeans, and Aran sweaters. That being said, I am the perfect strange leg size for these boots- I have 'athletic calves' that are larger than usual, but not quite 'wide'. My calves are 15-15 1/2", so many regular boot styles are too slim, but wide calf styles are generally 16 1/2-17 1/2" in circumference and I swim in them. These boots fall right in that in-between gap, and I love them. But anyone who is looking for a true wide calf will be frustrated by these.

Most beautiful boots I have ever laid eyes on! Perfect shaft height (I am 5'1 and the shaft hits right below my knee). I have athletic calves and have had a VERY difficult time finding a boot to zip around them at all, much less with jeans or leggins on. These took a little working over skinny jeans, but the leather is stretching perfectly, so I'm not worried at all. I bought the dark brown color and they are beautiful. Just the right amount of sheen to look dressy, yet with jeans, can still be casual. The brown will go perfectly with black and other neutrals, saving me the hassle of having to buy a brown and black boot buuut I might do it anyway! The leather in the shaft area is quite supple, but down near the ankle and in the foot area is very stiff, so they will take some breaking in. I gave them a 4 for comfort because they weren't comfortable right out of the box. If I could give them a 10 for style, I would. They are classic, yet trendy enough to go with everything and be versatile, without being too much of either. I waited a long time to buy these due to the price, but the quality, craftsmanship and durability all point to these boots lasting a very long time. I have one other pair of Frye's (Veronica Slouch) and they barely have any wear to them at all, despite my wearing them through a couple of New England winters. So glad I bought these boots!

I bought the redwood color in extended calf ~ this color is absolutely beautiful. I have been eyeing this brand for years but was nervous because I do have muscular calves from exercising & wasn't sure if they would even zip up. When the box arrived ~ I immediately tore it open & the wonderful smell of leather hit me. They are so soft & the craftsmanship is outstanding. Such a beautiful pair of boots. I slipped them on & much to my surprise ~ they zipped up!! I read some reviews that said ~ since they are leather~ they will stretch & mold to your leg. I wore them out to dinner with skinny jeans tucked in & YES they do stretch & mold to your leg!! They were soooo comfortable. My only problem is that my ankles are skinny & then my calves are muscular so the boot goes from thin at the ankle & wider at the calf & creates some scrunching in the leather. Not the boots fault ~ just the way my leg is built. Also the bottom of the boot is all leather & slippery ~ so just be careful the first time you have them on. I went out to the driveway to scrape up the bottoms a bit so that I wouldn't slip in the restaurant lol. If like me, you've been eyeing these boots~ I say give them a try. They are beautiful & will last for years. A shoe maker will become your best friend for new heels & polishing. Plus they're on sale & a terrific investment piece for your wardrobe. Enjoy ladies!! Happy walking!! For reference I bought a size 8 & the thickest part of my calf measures a little over 15 inches.

These boots are beautiful and totally worth the money. I originally got the redwood color but it was not as red as expected so I returned them and got the black instead. They are stunning. I have athletic legs (calves about 14.75 inches, size 7 foot) and can wear a regular boot with just tights but I wanted boots to wear with jeans so I got these. They easily zip over jeans and look great. The extended calf is not too wide so it fits well without looking too bulky. If you are on the fence about these, go for it! I wear them to work with skirts and nights and weekends with pants and they are perfect. The leather is a bit stiff at first so there is a break in period (a weekend around the house doing chores) but I walk miles in a city almost every day in these with no blisters. Great boots!
