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.

Nice shaft circumference for a wide calf. They are soft. The shaft likes to bunch up at the heel. They are very nice, casual, made from soft suede.

Super cute boot! Love the leather material! Especially like the little belt around the ankle to keep it from looking slouchy down there. Hard to believe that I can fit into a boot without any zippers, but it works! The only disappointment was the material used for the interior shaft of the boot. It feels cheap and possibly like it will rip with too much pulling or use. Hoping it will hold up. Otherwise, love the boot and will most likely buy more Rocha boots!

Beautiful boot! Looks great over skinny jeans. However, I do agree with other customers that the heel was "chunkier" than expected. It also doesn't have the best tread on the bottom, so I would suggest keeping it as a fall weather boot. Otherwise, no complaints here. The calf section is my favorite because its lined so its thicker than expected.

Great boot but inconsistent sizing. I normally wear an 8.5 or a smaller 9. The 8.5 was considerably smaller in the calf, but the foot was not noticeably smaller than the 9. Doesn't make sense; just because your foot is longer doesn't necessarily mean your calf is wider. That said, I kept the 9 because there was more room to tuck pants in. Just stuck a Dr. Scholl's in and the fit was good. These are nice boots for the price, good quality leather, comfortable even for my narrowish, very flat foot. I would say it's a good fit for those with wide-ish calves, not very wide. The ankle strap is adjustable; again, good for those with "low" (flat) feet. Foot felt true to size, but consider my comment above about calf width.

The boots look great! I had no problems with the circumference and the don't droop to my ankles! Had to put an insole in it. Not comfortable enough to walk around in for more than six hours.

When I ordered these boots, I didn't realize that they don't have zippers. So they were more difficult to take on and off (I have a high instep). The calf circumference is generous. The leather is not very stiff, so they end up being rather slouchy around the ankle.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

These boots are not as attractive as they appear in the photo. They are actual leather on the outside, but not appealing to look at, and the finish is disappointingly, including the tricot interior and the inside vinyl cuff at the top seam. The sole did not seem likely to provide good traction and the stacked heel looked cheaply made. The fit was true lengthwise, but narrow across the toes and wide in the heel. While the shaft fit me well, the circumference fell short of the stated measurement;stretching it I measured 16.5" max. at the widest part -- and this was on a size 9.5.

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.

The material of these boots felt like cheap leather, more like plastic. They did not look elegant or well made. I am definitely returning these.

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!
