I've had a lot of trouble finding boots that fit. These are the first pair I've found that do! I don't necessarily think I have huge calves, just larger than average, but since I'm short (5'), the widest part of the shaft of a boot doesn't hit me where it hits other people. I ordered a half size larger than my normal shoe size. These Fitzwells fit over my calves and jeans! In fact, they flare out a little at the top. I like the length, just below the knees. I thought the material of the leather would be stiffer, as in it would stand up on its own, but the boot falls over when you're not wearing them. It is very supple though, as is the inside of the boot. I am disappointed in the arch support. I don't feel like there is much and though I wear them for long periods of time, is not that comfortable by the end of the day. I will definitely get gel inserts for them. The width of the foot seems fine, except at the toes they pinch just a little in the beginning. The design is pretty basic, which works for me; I don't like a bunch of buckles, etc. Overall, very happy with these boots! They're definitely not made for those with skinny calves, but have worked out very well for me!

I just received my Uggs and I love them. First of all Zappos is amazing. They have great customer service and they shipped three pairs of Uggs in a week and I ordered them on all different days. I am a size 6 women and was not sure what I would be in kids so I ordered a 6 kids and they were too big i then ordered a 5 kids and was still too big and the size 4 kids were perfect. They are very comfortable and warm.

I loved the fit, style, comfort. However, the gel pack in the heel of one of the shoes just dissipated after about 3 months and the gel got all over my socks, the inside of the boot, etc. I guess I should contact the company about a replacement.

The boot fit great, which was a miracle after how many I've tried on! Unfortunately, the leather just looked a little too cheap for the price. The hunt continues...

I loved these boots when I first tried them on, and even more as I began to break them in. The second time I wore them, I wore them for 17 hours with no pain! There was one major problem though, the heel pad (gel insert) on the right boot busted open within two weeks of me buying the boots. Now, normally I would take advantage of Zappos' return policy, but the gel pad had always seemed a little off centered on my right foot, and it being gone actually improved the boot. It did cause a gel mess, and ruined a sock, but I was able to pull up the lining of the boot, cut across the felt where the gel pad ended, and replace the entire footbed with a simple foam liner. The boots fit great now - but I would say that it concerned me from a manufacturing standpoint. I hope to not run into any more problems with these boots!

I loved the look of these boots and they fit great; however, the buckle at the base seemed very flimsy and one was already so loose it was about to come off. Sad.

I really wanted these to work for me because I like the look which doesn't have the elastic band. Alot of the reviews said there was pleanty of room at the calf for wearing over jeans which is what I wanted to do. I'm 5'5" with a 17" calf and size 8 1/2. Unfortunately, I have to return. The size in the foot it perfect in face just a little room to spare but zipping up was extremely snug at the calf. Not any room to spare for me and forget jeans. Also, they pinched at the ankle and I could see that being a problem. On with my search.

These boots are great. I ordered and tried on three other pairs of Fitzwell boots before I found these. They fit great, unlike the other wide calf boots which were actually to wide for my calves. The zipper on one of the boots did zip right off of the boot when I tried them on, the zipper stops on the end of the zipper had come off. Zappos was great about it though. They paid for the zipper to be fixed since they didn't have any of this style remaining in this size and now they work great.

Loved them, but sent them back. I bought these in brown and loved them, but I had to return them. I wear a size 9 so I got my normal size. The calf wasn't big enough for me. If only it had a little give to it, it would have been perfect. I'm sad that I sent them back, but I don't think a size bigger would have helped. I think for being wide, it was pretty narrow.

This boot was very pretty, but it did not fit whatsoever. I got it zipped up about 6 inches. I'm 5'3", and have 17.5 inch calves. I can't speak to long-term comfort or support, obviously, but the boots are very pretty and I'm bummed they don't work. Back to the drawing board.

I bought these based on the high reviews. These boots had no support and were quite uncomfortable. The shaft width was too wide for my 16" calf. Boots aren't ugly, but aren't anything special. Will return them and try again.

These just arrived and I was so excited! Not now...the calf fits as it should; however, the toe box feels as if I am trying to fit my foot into a 7 Narrow not a 10 wide. What gives? This toe box (which was more pointed than it appeared in the pictures) is way out of proportion for a shoe in a Wide width. I'll have to return. Sorry.

Nice leather, good looking boot. However, it's got a very hard footbed and a hard feel under my heel, especially. Marked as being 16" circumference but it measured 18-1/4" in reality and positively flopped around my calves. would be fine if I wanted to wear regular jeans with them, but I need them for tights & skirts. Will have to try again with another pair.

Oh, no! I ordered these in Wide, but I could tell as soon as I took them out of the box that they were going to be way too narrow! They were also too long in the toe - I ordered my regular size, 6, but had at least an extra inch up front; since they do not come in a 5 1/2 WW, I'm going to have to return them. They were cute, though, just not a good fit at all. The LiveChat person I contacted at Zappos was very helpful for the return.

I just received these boots and didn't even try them on! They are really uglier than the picture and for the price, just not what I wanted. So back they go.
