I highly recommend against these, unless this is the only boot that fits and you will only wear them indoors. These boots are pleather, but they are very nicely styled. I got complements the first two weeks. Sadly, the heel is made of sawdust, covered with cheap vinyl drawer liner paper, printed to look like wood. After a few uses the plastic pulls up along the bottom. Then sawdust sole QUICKLY falls apart when wet. My boots lasted a month. They uppers looked new, but these could not be repaired. WORSE? The zipper is cheap plastic and one tooth was not in line, so the boots would split when I walked a random. This was not due to pulling - just cheap plastic. If you are OK buying these for just a few indoor uses - go for it. Don't think about outdoor use or winter/spring boot use. Personally I would not buy them unless $30 or less. That is the quality in my opinion.

Love! I have wide calves, I am a curvy girl and these are awesome! Very comfy, and very stylish. My first pair of boots that are mid calf, I never even tried before. The buckle is cute, the picture doesn't do it justice. I thought it looked cheap in the picture, but it is quite nice. These boots have been through the rain...oops, but held up very nicely. My fav pair of shoes for sure!

I ordered these boots because they are supposed to have extra wide calves. I usually wear a size 8M. These boots were nice, but they were huge on my feet and were too small on my calves which measure 16 1/2 inches. I am sending these back, but will still shop at Zappos because they have fantastic customer service.

They really mean extra wide calf. I have what I consider huge calves and I had to return these boots because they were too wide. Really great for those hard to fit calves!

Cheaply made, strong chemical smell, calf was wider than needed but would have been ok (my calves are not huge, but most boots calf is too tight). Had boot been half the price I may have kept it. Thanks to Zappos great return policy I can resume search for perfect boot without return fees! Love Zappos!

Great boots, the material is so soft and they fit great over my jeggings. Which are the slimmest pants I have with just a minimal gap on top, which was fixed when I tightened the top buckle. Which means in my regular jeans it will fit exact. No fighting to zip the top. So what I expected! A casual, comfortable, but dressy looking boot for toting my daughter to her activities a great looking weekend boot.

What a relief! Finally, an attractive boot with wide enough calves. It is so depressing to search for wide-calf boots, and find 15- and 16-inch circumferences almost exclusively, when 18 inches are truly needed. So happy to have found this boot!

I have had wide calves all of my life (except for the time in the tenth grade when I lost weight on the diet-soda-and-cracker-diet, but I was too weak and light-headed to enjoy my slender legs). Finally I found a riding boot that I can zip all the way up!! They actually, dare I say, make my calves look thin. What a great pair of boots that make skirts, pants, and even winter-weight wide-leg capris look good. They are a Good value for an every day boot.

These are the best ever! You can where them when and wherever you want. Be sure to get the tall ones, they are so worth the price. They keep your toes all the way up to underneath your knee warm. Plus Ugg will last you forever! My mom had a pair that lasted her 19 years and after that she got some more. I'm looks in to getting some Ugg slippers now too.

Brands I'd also recommend: vans and knockoffs that you can get for cheap!

I wear a 9.5 and many times get a wide shoe as I feel more comfortable in it. I had to order a 10 in this (I thought that it would fit better) but boy was I wrong! These are huge on me and the calf is wide..actually too wide for my plus sized legs (strange). So it is generous not only at the calf but also the ankle...just beware it may run too big. I had to return.

I admittedly have a huge calf (18 inches), but the picture of this boot kind of freaked me out because it looked so wide. My calf with skinny jeans fits perfectly fine within this boot without it looking weird. If your calf is even a bit larger than mine, I'd say you'd probably be fine. There's still a bit of room/stretch.

I received my boots very quickly after my order was place and was very excited to see what my first online shoe purchase would look like. I was please with the boots, thought it was funny to see a can of Red bull in the box and was smacked in the face with the odor of the new boots. I do have to say that they run a little big. I wear a 9.5 have very athletic calves and ordered a 9.5 WW. They are a little loose, double up on the thick socks but love that I can tuck my jeans in. Extremely comfortable. I would have preferred real leather but not bad for my first purchase!

Calf too wide - This boot was really cute but the calf was too wide for me. Advice - measure your calf and go by the measurements they list on description. The good thing about this boot is that the buckle at the top is adjustable and you can make the top part of the boot smaller, if you don't mind it looking kind of puckered at the very top. If my calf was bigger and filled the boot out, it would have been fine.

Boot was cute and fit okay but quality was much lower than expected. With so many great pleathers out there, these boots missed the mark.

Okay, these are cute and super comfy; however, they are also super cheap materials. People, they squeak when they rub against each other. The fabric is thin and stretchy. The fit is great with lots of room to tuck jeans and leggings. I am keeping them and wearing them to run the kids around and to play outside. I will wear them for the stay at home mom gig, but I bought a different pair in leather for more grown-up centered occasions.

There's no way these are extra wide calf. They wouldn't zip past my ankle. My calves are muscular, but they're not that big. Based on reviews, I expected to have plenty of room, but this was not the case. Also, the material is cheap and the smell overwhelmed me when I opened the box.

Terrible quality. "Synthetic leather" nothing like leather. It doesn't "scuff" like leather - where my legs would hit together and at the toe tore the cover in many places, and shoe polish did no good. Heel separated from boot before the end of the first season.

Okay, at first wear they were great. They are wide and they looked nice. But stay away. These are the cheapest crap boots I have ever bought. I would not have paid $10 if I knew the future. The heel fell apart in 10 wears. It is made of glue and saw dust and covered with vinyl to look like wood. The rubber under it fell off, then in the wet the heel fell to pieces. Then I noticed the third week that one of the zippers was splitting. I could not figure it out because the teeth look fine, but it is a cheap plastic zipper, so it probably just was not hooking (plastic too soft). Not even 2 months, that was it! I only wore then a couple times a week, too. Also I noticed that there are a couple places on the leather that are scratched; I think it is pleather. So upset. Make them the same, with better materials to last please!

I ordered these boots after seeing them in the latest issue of People Style. I'm short (5'2") and have largish calves. No tall boot would ever fit; if they fit around the calves they would bunch around my ankles because I was too short - frustrating. Took a chance on these and love them. Sure, they're not leather but for the price they are great quality. They fit easily over my calves and fall about 1.5 inches below the knee with no bunching whatsoever on the leg or ankle area. Cannot wait to wear them. Thanks Zappos!

Too big. At the largest point, my calves measure 18" in circumference and I have size 12 feet, regular width. These were surprisingly large in the feet; too long by over half an inch, and these were also too wide in the ankles. Yes, I have large feet and proportionately appropriate ankles, and shapely calves. But I felt these were larger than advertised, and I thought once broken in these wouldn't provide adequate support. The hunt for boots continues.

I have extremely wide calves and have a lot of difficulty finding boots that fit well. Most of my boots are tight in the calves and I cannot wear jeans tucked in. However, these boots are amazing! They are very roomy in the calf, they don\'t slouch very much in the ankle (I have small ankles), and I can wear jeans tucked in! I\'ve been searching a long time for boots like these! They look great over jeans or with a dress.

LOVE THESE! These boots are pretty great. I love them and so does everyone that sees me in them. One downfall is they get a tad uncomforatable walking in them for a long period of time but that\'s fixable. Overall def worth getting them.

Z's comes through again - Genes gave me 9.5 WW feet and years of calf raises gave me gams like a pair of fire plugs, but Zappo's gives me a boot (not bad for faux leather) roomy enough to go over puffy socks and pant legs all without giving me a stroke zipping them up. And it only took adding a great Small Paul hoodie (present for my niece I needed to get anyway) to qualify for free overnight shipping so I have the boots in time for a trip home this week. Merry Christmas!

A great, comfy boot - definitely wide calf. Wish they weren't quite as cheap (showing wear on soles after maybe 20 wears). I'm almost always a 9 and ordered a 9, but should have ordered an 8.5 it still would have probably been a bit big.
