Like most of the shoppers looking at these boots
, I have wide, hard-to-fit calves, and every couple of years I go through one of these endless searches for a pair of stylish knee boots
that fit my impossible legs. I have to say, these pretty much fit the bill. Most importantly, I was able to zip them up without trouble. They feel comfortable, although there's not any padding in the foot, or much in the way of arch support
, which is really par for the course for tall boots
. The style is nice, fairly classic, so should work for a couple of years at least. They're a little wide through the ankle, so it bunches a bit, but I prefer that to a very form fitting boot, since I feel that only emphasizes a large calf. The buckle and strap add an attractive detail. I gave it only 4 stars on style but only because I wish the boots
were about 1/2 inch taller, but it's not a deal-breaker. I ordered both the brown and the black colors and am debating whether or not to keep both. The brown color is really lovely, not what I'd call dark brown at all, it's a rich, deep cognac color, which will be much more versatile than just a flat dark brown. Very happy with my purchase so far.
