Love the look but I tried on size 39 because I wear an 8 1/2 but they were too tight so I tried on size 40 but found them too big. I needed a size in between. By the way, for those with smaller or larger calves, Dillard's has a machine to punch additional holes in the buckle strap to accommodate those needs.

Beautiful boots, but an odd fit for me...I've worn Eccos before and loved them, but the leather on the front of the boot (that rises up to a point at the front of the ankle) was incredibly stiff and uncomfortable. Additionally, the boots were far too tight around my admittedly wide feet (but again, the same size as other Eccos I've had before, with which I had no width problem). Sent 'em back! Too bad, as they're so pretty.

I love these boots! I have a slightly wider calf...but these adjust. My ankles are not fat and these fit snuggly. Often wider calf boots have extra width in the ankle...and I don't like the way they look or fit.

Love these boots!! They are very comfortable and felt"broken in" after the first wearing. The buckles on the sides could be adjusted slightly for those with wider calves.

I have these boots and they are awesome. I wear the size 38. My 16 year old daughter who is 6 ft wanted these boots too and she wears an 11 in shoes, but the 42 (11-11 1/2) is too small for her. She is sad and wishes they came larger. Returning these and trying another brand that comes in a size 12.

I have searched high and low for tall boots that would fit my calves. Most of the wide-calf boots have elastic gores that don't look all that great, not these. I bought these boots and when the arrived and actually fit I was thrilled. I have worn the black ones almost every day since the beginning of fall and just got the brown one's today. The leather is a little stiff at first but they break in very quickly and are really soft.

I have this boot in black as well. The brown boot is much less comfortable. Stiffer and tighter. Still wearable but will apparently have a longer breaking-in period.

These fit my wide calves however, the quality was not up to my expectations for ECCO. Usually ECCO is very good but these seemed very cheap looking.

Great boots! A bit overpriced but stylish, durable and versatile. The calf is surprisingly generous as I have large calves and these have a bit of room to spare.

I have terrible feet: bunions, narrow heels, and am recently battling a bad case of plantar fasciitis. I also have wide calves. Finding a pair of boots that I can wear to accommodate all of these problems is virtually impossible. I bought these boots two weeks ago from Dillards after trying on about 10 pairs of boots. These are amazing! Immediately they accommodated all of my foot problems and were wonderfully comfortable. I am a teacher and walk/stand on my feet all day. I have worn these almost everyday and my feel never hurt. They didn't need any breaking in and although they don't have a lot of arch support or padding in the sole, my orthotic insole fits nicely providing the extra support I need. The quality is excellent and the leather is very soft. They are classic, but still stylish and look great with skirts/dresses and also with my jeans tucked in or over them. They are the most expensive boots I have purchased for myself, but they have been worth the money. Many people have complemented me about them and I feel great wearing them. This is why I am purchasing another pair in black from Zappos. I am so happy with these boots.

I bought both the brown and black pair. I have a wide calf and wear a size 10 shoe. 41 works great for me. Quality, style, comfort and sizing worked for me in boots that I often have to pass by due to fit. I received the ultimate seal of approval from my fashion student daughter and that is my gauge for everything I buy. She's young, cute and hip so if she says they're great, I take it and run right back to get a second pair! Hence, I now own brown and black in the Ecco Hobart.

Cute boot and the leather is super nice quality but my spouse said they made my feet look big so they're going back. The right boot for some reason also crimped into my angle, which was a bit painful.

I have been looking for a pair of tall leather boots that would work with my calves (which are 15"). These boots are great. The full length zipper and the side buckles make it a breeze to get on and adjust as needed to get the right look with jeans, leggings, or tights. Overall, I would highly recommend these boots.

I got the cognac, and it's a really nice color. However, this boot is for wider calves. I have a 13" calf, and the shaft portion was huge. The adjustments just aren't effective when it's so big...I would have had to punch a hole in the very last part of the leather strap, and even then, it was bunching so much it looked terrible. The boot is comfy, though.

These boots fit beautifully. I do not have huge calves, but they are large enough not to be able to wear side zipper boots. The zipper on these is full length, the adjustable buckles fit the bill and on first time walking about the city, they were very, very comfortable. I now own a black and brown pair.I heartily recommend them!

Love this boot! A friend of mine has a pair and they look so good on her. She raved about the comfort, so I had to see for my self and ordered them. I order three different brands of boots as well to see which I would like the most, and yep, the ECCOs won hands down. I've worn them almost every single day since they arrived a week ago with not the slightest discomfort. Totally waterproof in the rain and the bottoms do not collect debris like the ones with the waffle sole. It's the kind of boot you actually forget you are wearing because they fit so perfectly. Also I am a very small boned person and have small calves but I am tall, so finding boots that have a tall enough shaft and yet stay close to my calves is nearly impossible. Because this boot has three functioning buckles on the side I was able to adjust them to my skinny calves without changing the look of the boot at all. Also I have a narrow foot and they fit perfectly, so this might not work so well for someone with a wide foot. Thanks again Zappos for making shoe shopping a simple joy!

I love this boot! Have long been looking for a riding boot that will work for me and finally the search is over. I need wide calf (17 inch) and these work well. A little snug but they stretch out a bit after the first few wears. I can even wear leggings, tights and skinny jeans with them. Highly recommend!

Simply put these boots thrill me. They look beautiful on. The leather is a fantastic deep rich brown, without being too dark. I am 5'7" and the boots hit a bit below my knee. The buckles adjust to make these the perfect boots if you have a larger calf and the perfect boot if you have an average calf. My only complaint is that they feel a bit stiff around the ankles, but I think that will shake itself out. And as always, Zappos' shipping was amazing.

Perfect in every way! I have searched and searched for a beautiful wide calf boot and finally found it in this Ecco boot. I have a 17 calf and this fit fine thanks to the adjustable buckles. Not only stylish, they are also extremely comfortable. I was able to wear them a full day and evening right out of the box. Do not hesitate due to the price because you will have them for years to come!

Excellent boot! It was hard to find a boot that went around my calf, but this was just the ticket. It expands on the sides great and by ordering my regular size, it had plenty of room for my orthotics, but can only wear knee-highs till it stretches out a little, but that is okay--these are great boots!

These are super cute, but a full size too large. I normally wear a 9N, ordered 9-9½B and they were huge, and the calves way too large even with buckles adjusted tightly. That was too bad.
