The 16.25 calf circumference does not seem accurate. The boots were a couple inches from closing over my 16 inch calves. I'm disappointed as I really like the look of them.

I have a wide calf and these are the first boots that I have been able to zip up that go to my knee without scrunching down that we're designated as wide calf. The leather is thick but soft. I wear these to my warehouse and they help on concrete. Highly recommend.

I love these boots. They fit nicely and were comfy right out of the box. I initially ordered an 8.5, based on all of the reviews saying that they ran small/narrow, but then ended up exchanging them for a size 8 (my true size). Zappos has the best customer service and sent me out the replacement size before I even returned the larger ones. Love Zappos and love these boots.

I ordered four boots: Teva, Uggs, Clarks, and this. Uggs are my favorite due to sheep lining, but out of my desired color. This was the most flattering in terms of shape around calves, mine are small. The waterproof is an added bonus. The footing is pretty tailored; I have to wear thinner socks. These are perfect to wear over smaller pants (skinny and leggings).

These are great boots! Timberland is really stepping up their game with these. I thought they might be a little too masculine for me when I ordered them, but they are perfect. Great leather, hardware, and craftsmanship. I ordered a 6½W after reading other reviews about the boot being narrow. 6½ is my normal shoe size, but I probably could have gone half a size down, and the boot is pretty narrow for a wide size. Boots are much lighter than I had expected and very comfortable. Hopefully they will hold up in rain or snow.

Great boots! Good quality and very comfortable. Suggest buying snug as they stretch out, just like all Timberland's do. Perfect fit in the calves as well.

I love this boot! Bought them to wear with jean-leggings mostly and they look great, but they fit close enough to the calf to wear with skirts too. I bought them right before a trip to London and walked long distances in them every day, in freezing cold weather. Sent back the 8 for the 7.5 and those were perfect.

These boots are amazing! I bought them last year and get complements on them almost every time they are on. They are a comfortable and fashionable option for braving the Minnesota weather. And because they are waterproof, I don't feel bad about exposing them to all sorts of weather. Love these boots!

Love these. I've had mine about six weeks, and began wearing them day 1. Felt a tad snug in the heel/around the ankle initially, but quickly relaxed. If I had it to do over again, I might have tried a 9.5 wide (I'm normally a 10 reg., which I got), because they are a bit long-looking in the toe, but the fit feels fine; I just might have bought both sizes to see if I could minimize the length, if that variation still felt good (I now suspect that would have worked for my foot shape). Also, I'm a very muscly size 12 (pant), and the boot's top circumference just barely fit my calf; not a lot of adjustment available if you have a very large calf.

Perfect everyday winter boot - great traction and they are waterproof - but with style. The boot accommodates orthotics. Tested them at home, then wore them for my 2 mile walking commute without a problem. It was about 25F and my feet were warm with thin Smartwool socks on (I have spent a lot of time walking with cold feet in the NY winter). I am normally a 9 medium and find this to be a good fit. Based on reviews, I also tried the 8.5 wide. The 8.5 wide was not too much different - it did look a little daintier. But, I think the smaller shoe shifts one's balancing point a bit forward on the toes - so I decided to keep my normal size. I decided to keep the brown color (looks like a riding boot) - the black is also nice but a bit more aggressive - police/biker style boot. I find I can wear them with pants tucked in or not - both are comfortable.

These did NOT fit an "athletic" calf. I measured my leg against the calf circumference given and it was more than an inch too small. Have to return them.

By far the most comfy boots I have ever had. Well made, tough, but looks cute with jeans or thick tights and a short skirt. I walked all over Japan in these, and have worn them every day on my motorcycle for 2 years, in all weather. Now they need resoling, or I may just get another pair. Thanks Timberland for re-issuing these for another season; I was getting worried as I couldn't find them last year.

These were huge! At least a full size bigger than they were supposed to be. On the fence about reordering in a smaller size. The did look well made and like they would handle the snow well.

These are gorgeous boots. Unfortunately I had to return due to the athletic calf being not as big as mine. I agree with other reviewers in that the foot looks very long in large sizes due to the thin ankle. I could zip this boots, but no way get jeans inside. I am sorry to see them go.

I am a person who wants the highest quality, good looking and rugged at the same time. Those three things are hard to come by. So after much research, I picked these boots. And of course, Zappos' immediate gratification helps as well when making my final decision. I live in Jackson Hole, and although I would not use them for snow above ankle high, they have already been tested in snow and rain. So far they are 100 percent waterproof. I liked the way they looked on line and they looked exactly as shown when received. Initially, the boot felt tight around the ankle and difficult to pull on which I didn't like because I am usually running late and do not want to have to worry about my shoes. However, it felt fine around my calf which can be described as athletic. After deliberating on the next size up to accommodate the heel and socks, I decided against it and wore them to work all day for 10 hours. I was pleasantly surprised. The next time I put them on, they had stretched, but not too much. Now they fit perfectly. I love them and get a ton of compliments from everyone. They can easily go from riding horses to work with a nice pair of pants or skirt. It really fits the western lifestyle of someone who wants to be stylish, yet functional.

Comfortable right out of box, good arch support, good traction, had to return as calf width was smaller than listed in description. Gave it five stars - boot was great, just didn't fit my calf. As always, Zappos service was top notch!

Nice boots, but the footbed in the bunion area is very snug. It's more like a C width than a D width.

Good looking boot of decent quality. I too will comment on the sizing. It appears that this is an inconsistent aspect of the boot as I agree with the comments re: calf and foot itself being "snug" - despite ordering a 1/2 size larger (I am 5'8", about 135 lbs).

I am very happy with my new purchase. At heart, they are durable and rugged boots with a simple and elegant design. Highly comfortable. My only critique is that I had to order half a size larger, as they were very tight, both in the shoe and calf.

Love these boots! Felt snug at first, was going to re-order wide, but they didn't have them, so I walked around a while at home and felt they were sufficiently stretching out. Perfect cross between a roper and riding boot which means I can dress them up or down with ease.

While the boot is visually appealing, it does not fit an athletic calf (lower or upper). Could barely zip up the last few inches of the boot. The boot bunches considerably at the ankle, and the lining fabric is rough and resembles burlap. Also, the adjustable strap is deceiving, as the adjustment is minute. For a boot that pitches itself as athletic it fell massively short - I am 5'4" and wear a 2 regular and 2/4 petite depending on hip cut. I have shapely calves but they aren't massive. The boot was true to size for my foot, but if you can't wear 7.5W pointy shoes this will probably not be wide enough for you.

The boots are beautiful, but not made for anyone with a wide foot. The toe box is narrow. Based on the reviews, I purchased a half size bigger than I normally would. I'm glad I did. I really need the extra room. The leather has stretched a bit and they are more comfortable now that I've worn them a few times. Love, love, love the look with skirts.
