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.

Beautiful boots! I was really disappointed that they didn't fit! Most definitely closer to a 15.5-16 calf as opposed to the 17 that's shown

I loved these boots when I saw them online, but when I ordered them in a 6.5W, they were a little too tight through the toe. The rest of the fit was good though, and I loved the style. I'm sometimes in-between sizes, so I decided to order the next size up. Unfortunately, they had been on sale when I ordered them and when I went to order the next size, they were more! However, I contacted Zappos with their live chat and Angela the agent was more than happy to exchange them for me, one size bigger at no additional cost! She also had them shipped to me with VIP shipping, which means they should have arrived in 2 days, but instead they came overnight! The new size (7W) fits perfectly and is very comfortable! They're very well-made and totally cute. I definitely recommend them!

After trying on 5 different boots this was the one! The black is gorgeous. Fits around the ankle and my calf ( about a 17.5, size 10) nicely..not poofy at all for a pull on boot and looks classy. Nice silhouette as I was worried about no zipper for shape. Should fit with skinny jeans or leggings. Not the best for support but I am looking more for an average boot to run errands around town in the car,etc. not for walking blocks or standing long periods of time.

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.

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.

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!

Finally a boot that fits my wide calves. Granted, I still have to wear them with tights or the skinniest of skinny jeans only. But they're quite comfortable and cute.

The fit is true to size, fairly easy to pull on and get off, and stay up perfectly, even with the wide calf. Comfortable fit and great look.

Beautiful boots!!! The only complaint is the boot is not very wide in the toe box area. Wide enough for my calves but had to stretch them in the toe area.

Fantastic! I have a wide calf, and I wasn't sure if these would work, but they fit like a dream - even over jeans. They look gorgeous and are as comfy as bedroom slippers. Outstanding boots. The only small drawback is that they're a bit difficult to get on and off without a zipper, but it is well worth the effort.

These boots are awesome and the heels and grade of suede are the best I have seen at this unbelievable price. But, I think I finally figured it out. If you measure the widest shaft circumference from the inside of boot, you get 1-2 inches less than if you measure around outside of boot shaft. I need a 17 inch circumference and these measure 15 inch inside and 17 inch outside. The inside measurement is what needs to match your actual calf measurement. Who knew?

Lovely boot, but very difficult to get on. A side zipper would have been great to ease with putting the boot on and getting it off. Very cute style though, and may work great for someone with a narrow foot.

These are lovely looking boots on - I'm relatively short (5 foot 2 inch) but the leg length was perfect. The boots seemed pretty sturdy and good quality. Sadly I have to return them as they are the width is much narrower than other boots/shoes of the same size. I am a wide-fit which is what I ordered but the boot was too tight by a long way. I loved the look of the boot so much I tried them on repeatedly but it's no good, they have to go back.

Love the suede. The shaft was great for wearing skinny jeans tucked in. I wear a wide, though, and the heel was way too big and the toe area was way tight. I wish the foot part had fit as the shaft was great.

These boots are great! They are very cute and comfortable. I wear a size 9 wide calf; however, the boots were a little loose. They are still a great boots. I just wish that I ordered an 8½.

These are the perfect suede boots that I've been looking for for the longest time! I have really large calves that can fit in maybe about 20% of the normal boots you find in department stores. I was a bit hesitant about these since other reviews have claimed the calf dimensions on these boots aren't truly wide. But I found them to be perfect! The only thing negative is that they're a bit too tall for me (I'm 5'1 with short stumpy legs), hitting at the bottom of my knees. So short gals, watch out. Otherwise, beautiful boots!

I have really enjoyed these boots! They are stylish and extremely comfortable, even when I wear them to work for a 12 hour day. I was concerned about the shaft circumference, since my calves measure 15.5 inches, but they slide on easily. I wear them with straight-leg jeans.

The calf of this boot is wide enough and nice and long. (I am pretty tall.) I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get it on since I have a high instep and there is no zipper, but I actually could. (It wasn't easy.) So far, I have only worn them with tights. Without a zipper, putting these on over jeans or leggings might be difficult - haven't tried yet so we'll see. The quality of the boot is very nice and they're quite comfortable.

I absolutely love these boots! I have a hard time finding comfortable wide calf boots since I have such a small foot (6.5), but these fit perfectly. They are a little looser around the ankles, but not in an unflattering way. I also like the slip on style - you're out the door in no time. Definitely worth it!

I love these boots. Very comfortable and perfectly sized for those of us with muscular calves. The suede finish is so elegant. I can dress these boots up or down. I ordered one half size bigger than usual because I knew I'd want to wear them with thick socks during the winter. They are just perfect. Thanks to Zappos for carrying these. I had never even heard of the brand before I saw them on here.

As a wide calf girl (16") I search for boots every few years to add to my collection. These are the pick this year! The leather is so soft and luxurious. The footbed is a little wide but I will be putting in a padded insert. I agree with the reviewers who say this is not for a 17" calf. They go all the way to my knee and I am 5'7". There is no zipper so they are a little harder to get off but still okay. Overall winners in my book!
