These boots will not fit your calves if you have any muscle whatsoever! My calves are 14.5 inches at largest diameter and I could not zip them up, so make sure you measure before you order. They are nice looking but they have to go back. And I usually wear a size 7 and I ordered a 6.5W as others suggested which fit fine on my foot. I am having the hardest time finding a quality boot that zips and fits my muscular calves. I guess they think we all walk around with chicken legs?

So disappointed! I loved the look of this boot and was so excited to try it on. The fact that it was waterproof sounded great. However, it's incredibly uncomfortable. First, I would recommend purchasing a 1/2 size up if you like to wear socks at all. Secondly, I found the strap around the heel to rub on the inside as I walked. The boot is pretty tight around the calf and I don't have very large calves. I am sadly going to be returning these. They are really nice until you actually go to wear them.

Sturdy shank, very comfortable footbed (arch support like that in my tennis shoes), and warm without being stuffy. I was very pleasantly surprised with these. I had one person comment that they were like "moto" boots and another that they were like riding boots. They are a nice intersect of the two styles. Note that the toebox is rather long and that might be a look you're not going for, but I liked it; I have medium/narrow feet. Leather (black) is, like most rain-resistant leathers, a little duller than ideal, but the color is at least consistent (so, good quality dye job).

Fabulous boots, but they are huge! Even though I'm a standard, consistent size 8, I needed a 7.5 which still make my feet look big. Great price and quality, so I think I'll keep them.

Everyone was right. Get the half size larger and a Wide if your foot isn't narrow. This is a nice sturdy boot, but not what I expected. It's very 'biker chic' and not something I could wear to work except on Fridays. They are super well made for cold, wet places with great traction. So if you need a snow boot, I suggest them. They are very well made!

The style is exactly what I've been looking for, but I couldn't get the right fit. It definitely runs long and narrow. I ordered a half size down and still looked like I was wearing clown shoes. There was enough empty space in the toe that i could have gone down another half size, but it was so tight and narrow I needed a shoe horn to get my foot in. I considered ordering another half size smaller, but the instep was already too tight across the top of my foot to be comfortable for my high arches. Otherwise, they are beautiful boots. I'm 5'2" with an athletic build and found the shaft height and circumference to be just right. The size 7 hit a couple of inches below my knee and left just enough room for skinny jeans, but the ankle area was too slim to be able to tuck in straight leg or wider jeans.

This boot is a good quality leather boot but it runs too much and long. I have skinny feet. I'm normally wearing 7.5m for high heel and 8m for flat of ninewest. But for this one I can wear 7w with thick soak and still have room for toe box. The look is more like working boot but classy. When I first tried it was difficult to put on but it getting better with the 3 times to put on.

Love these boots! Seem to fit foot true to size and they fit tight to the calf (I may have larger than normal calves?) - anyway, that's the fit I wanted. May not be able to tuck in jeans, but for a skirt and leggings they are great! Very happy.

Ordered these boots Friday night and they were at my door Monday morning. I love how fast Zappos gets their items to you. All my boots are 8 1/2 (normal width), but after reading the reviews here, I went ahead and ordered an 8 wide. The boot is still a bit too big/long in the toe and makes my heel slip up when I walk. Was going to order the 7 1/2 wide, but they're sold out. I'm really surprised the size 8 was too big. All of my shoes/boots/sandals are either 8 1/2 - 9. Also, just to mention the fit in the calf, as a lot of reviewers had trouble with the fit, the 8 wide was fine for me (my calf is 13 in.), and I had no problem tucking my jeans into them. Boot looked great, felt comfy, just too big/long in the toe. Bummer for me. :(

Wow! I ordered these yesterday and got them today. I was worried about the fit in the calf bc my calf is just under 15". The boots do zip up over thin pants but they are tight. Getting them on was tough too but once on there is plenty of room in the foot. I normally wear a 7 but ordered a 7 1/2 in hopes there would be more room in the calf. I love the look of this boot and the brown is perfect. I'm really hoping they will stretch out a bit and get easier to put on.

A very nicely made boot for a person with a calf less than 14". I love them but I can't tuck even skinny jeans into these boots.

Love these boots! My daughter had them and I finally got my own pair. They are comfortable right out of the box, can be super casual up to casual, and look great with jeans. So glad I got these!

Awesome! I bought these in black a few years back, I really wanted them in brown and was so excited that they were available again this year. They are very comfortable and look great. Great buy. They run a tad big. I'm usually a 7 1/2 in boots, 7 in a shoe. I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly.

Very comfortable and stylish. They work with skirts or pants, and you can wear them outdoors to in. Feet warm outside and no overheating inside. The waterproof is a plus. True to size. I was concerned they may be too causual though they dress up nice. I purchased these to replace my old black Santana boots for work. I work in a medical office and primarily wear skirts. I am excited as they have a hearty enough sole, I will be able to wear them to walk, on snowy streets, to downtown (about 1 mile).

I had high hopes for these, but they were a disappointment. I chose these by their wide calf specs and ordered an 8.5 wide. not only were these incredibly narrow, like not even a normal 8.5, and certainly not a wide, but they were incredibly stiff and wouldn't even zip up. I love the style, but they don't really look as good in person. lots of glue showing.

I love this boot. It's become the only one I want to wear. It's fashionable but really comfortable. I am in between an 8 and 8 1/2 and the 8 fit best but keep in mind that I have a very narrow foot and calf so I think it runs pretty true to size or maybe a tiny bit big. I love the chunky heel and that it's functional but still high enough to give me some height. Love these boots!

I own three pairs of these boots (two in black, one in brown). Love the look and the comfort. Got many compliments. First they felt a little bit narrow (I bought the size 7W) but I used a shoe stretch (a spray) and my boots stretched easily and soon. I am buying the fourth pair.

These came up when I search for wide calf boots. The reviews seemed to indicate that they may not really be wide calf, so I tried ordering a wide width to get extra room in the calf. No luck about 1/2" too small with skinny jeans on. Very unfortunate because these are fabulous boots. Zappos, please fix your database and product specs!

I've had these for five years now and they are still my favorite go-to comfort boots. I've used them in every possible weather scenario: snow, rain, sun, sidewalks, hikes, ice, etc... and they are still in really good shape. The leather is a little stained, but that only added to the "rugged" look of the boot. I have wide feet and bad circulation (so my feet are always horribly cold in the winter time). These boots have a great, thick rubber sole that helps keep your feet warm, and also protects against slippery/icy sidewalks. The inside sole is cushioned and offers great support. My only observation is that these boots are heavier than your usual pair of shoes. I'm sold on Timberlad boots after them. If you care about comfort and warmth, but also style, it's a great option.

This is my second time buying this boot and I still love the style and fit. The first pair lasted me about 3 years and I wore them heavily throughout the falls and winters. They are comfortable and need no breaking in...although the leather will get significantly softer as time passes.

I really wanted to like this boot, but it just did not fit my foot. I have a fairly normal foot, not too wide, not too narrow, don't really have high arches, but I just could not get my foot in the boot! I never even got to the point where I would be able to zip it up, so I have no idea whether it would fit my calves! Boo!

I just received these boots - they fit great! I have a large very flat foot (size 9.5 D). My calf measure is 14.75 inches - I walk 6 miles per day - so I am pretty muscular. The boot toe is very comfortable - with a nice size toe box. The leather is a "flat black" with muted buckles. The soles are very sturdy - it should keep me safe in ice and snow. As with all Timberland - the boots are well made - with no imperfections.

It's a beautiful boot, but very tight across my instep and therefore unwearable. I don't normally have any issues with this. I did order 1/2 size larger, but I could still barely get the boot on.

Oh my! What a sexy boot! I decided to go with the advice of Katherine (online Zappos support) and order my usual size. I am wearing them with a medium thickness sport sock right now and find them pretty comfortable. I do think one could get away with going a 1/2 size down from their usual size. But I'm going to stick with what I have. There is a sideways thumb length from the end of my toe to the tip of my boot (good roomy distance for a running shoe so I've been told). I purchased these to use as motorcycle boots. I wanted a sleek, sexier look instead of the usual frumpy motorcycle boot. I can't wait to zip them up over a pair of jeans and take them for a ride on my Triumph tomorrow.

This is a good looking boot! Rugged and sexy. I was very disappointed with how narrow the shaft was though. I could barely zip it on a bare leg, never mind over a pair of skinny jeans. I don't have super-skinny calves, but I'm not overweight either. I totally would have kept these if not for the calf issue.
