I loved this boot and hated to send it back. The description said 17" circumference but it was 15.5 at the calf and 16 at the top. Stretching would not have helped.

My calfs measure 16". Which makes it so hard to find nice fitting tall boots. These boots look stylish but they fit a little tight around my calfs and very loose around my ankles (bulging out). I had to return them.

I love these boots! I diligently searched for, bought and sent back two other pairs before finding these. I am 5'8" with long legs, and wear a size 10. I desperately wanted a pair of black boots that came right below my knee, plus fit my calf, and was without zippers (pull on). For those of you that don't know what I am talking about - non zipper boots are hard to find and add on that I wanted tall and wide calf. Oh yeah. So, if this describes what you are looking for, try these boots. They are super cute too.

Love, love, love these boots. I have the hardest time finding boots for my wide calves and these are perfect! They are even a little big so I can wear cute boot cuffs.

These are definitely wide calf boots. However, they are not wide boots. They suede and the style were perfect but, they were too narrow across my toes. I ordered a wide (D) but they were not more than a C width. Too bad. Back they go!

Brands I'd also recommend: Soft seems to fit me well.

These were even better in person but they had to go back. They were at least a half if not a full size too big. Also, I ordered these to go over leggings and skinny jeans...I know if I go a half size down the boot won't go over the jeans at the thickest part of my calf. These are very well proportioned for a wide calf boot...so wish they had worked.

Nice quality and a great shaft height for a taller woman (I am over 6'). I ordered my normal size and had no problem getting them on even with no zipper. The heel slips quite a bit, which I would have worked with. But the shaft circumference was just too big. I did not need the wide calf. I returned them.

These boots look great, are comfortable and pull on like a dream. I have wide feet and muscular calves and these boots fit really well in both places. They were easy to pull up over calves and jeans. But I will probably return them - why? Well, if you want to wear them with skinny jeans or a dress, they would work well. But I wear straight leg jeans and when you pull up the boots, you pull up some of the jeans so it is bunched up round the top of the boots. With boots that zip, I can keep pushing the fabric inside the boots and end up with a clean finish.

Love these boots. The suede is a rich black, and the buckle is understated. I feel money wearing them. The circumference and height measurements are spot on, too; I have almost 17" calves and these slide right on (without tights they're even a little slouchy).

Very excited about these boots. I've had a devil of a time finding boots tall enough to hit me in the right spot on my leg, (I'm 5'11"). I also have thick calves, but these work well. I was worried about the no-zipper aspect of the boots, but I'm glad I gave them a try anyway; they are surprisingly easy to get into-- and, trust me, I'm no acrobat.

I absolutely love these boots! Because I need wide-calf boots, I ordered four pairs praying that one would work - and this one did! Do not be swayed because these are pull on. My calf is 17½" at the widest point and I can wear these with my skinny jeans tucked in. I absolutely love them. I am contemplating buying the brown pair as well.

Finally! Thank you Zappos for accepting my many returns before I found my boot! I am 6ft tall and athletic and never could find a boot tall enough or to fit my calf. They are dressy and look great! Thank you!

Beautiful boots. I have "muscular" calves so I am always looking for riding boots and normally find very unattractive ones. These are wide, but not so wide as to make them disproportionate. They have a very soft lining, which makes them very confortable, nice foot padding and above all they look very high end and classy.

I liked the look of this boot, but the zippers were terrible! They were hard to zip up even when they were off. Reaching behind and trying to zip them was not easy. One boot appeared smaller in the shaft than the other (at least I could not zip up the left one, even with help). I thought of getting the zippers replaced to a heavy duty one that would work better and have more a zipper look (it would be cuter to actually see the back zipper, in gold or silver), but I decided against it due to the smaller circumference in the left boot and will send these boots back. I agree with a previous reviewer that the shafts are not as wide as advertised.

I love these boots but have to return them. Bought the extra wide calf, wrong move (way too big). there is so much extra room around the ankles. Getting something with zippers, its much easier to deal with.

I ordered a Sami Wide Calf also in a wide width. The width of the boot is not satisfactory, and the width of the calf is not as advertised. Nice boot, but it is not a standard size at all...very odd size. I note that it was made in China, and perhaps they are using a non-standard width, as this boot in a wide is almost narrow!

Very classy looking and comfortable boots which look just as they are pictured and are of good quality. They are wide calf, but just barely. Like most boots that are slip-ons, they are quite hard to get into. You do have to struggle. Most boots that are not wide calf do not fit me, but these do fit nicely but they do take some pulling to get on all the way. But they are worth a little struggle and once on they are comfortable for all-day wear, and they look exceptional with knee-length or just-above-the-knee skirts. I am very happy with these boots and wear them often.

I've been searching everywhere for a good pair of leather knee high boots and I finally found them! I'm a 6.5, so most of the time the calf won't fit correctly, but these boots fit like a dream. There was no need to break them in...just pull them up and go!

Really nice looking boot. I finally found boots that look decent on my lower legs. I hate the wide circumference boots that when you put on looks extra huge on your calves. These boots are a little tight in the shaft but there is still enough room for my jeans in them.

These boots are very comfortable. I never had to have a "break-in" time of wearing these boots. I literally put them on and wore them for 10 huors. The wide calf is wider than I expected, almost too much room. There's no zipper but they're easy to get on and off.

This is a beautiful boot that fit my foot and calf perfectly. I found the material quite loose around my ankle, and I am disappointed by the tendency to slouch. In case you are wondering, there is no stretch in the calf.

Awesome boots. I don't know my calf measurement, but I think these are perfect for someone whose calves are just a bit too big for most regular width boots, but often find "wide calf" too roomy. That would be me! It really is a crap shoot with boots though, and Zappos makes shopping for just the right pair so easy. Order them all, send back those that don't work! Re: comfort, they are very comfortable on the leg and foot, but they do lack any arch support in my opinion. Nothing a pair of insoles won't remedy though. I highly recommend these boots!

Absolutely love these boots. There were not hard to get on and off - even without pulls. Very comfortable too. I ordered the wide width and they were not gapping at the top and was able to tuck my slacks in. Great pair of boots!

If you have a large foot and calf like myself this is an excellent boot choice. I purchased these in a size 11(wide) and was easily able to pull them up over my 17" calves and even wear skinny cords underneath. The only issue I can see with them is if you get the suede you will have to treat them with some kind of leather protectant.

Felt great - I wear a wide and ordered 1/2 size up so I could wear tights/socks in the winter - too warm to wear them yet, but walked around the house and they're very comfortable. Am going to order the brown as well.
