I ordered a 7.5 and have a 16inch circumference calf. Since the have teh specs listed for an 8.5 size shoe I wasn't sure what the 7.5 specs would be. They wouldn't pull all the way up around my calf. I will be sending them back and try an 8 if it ever comes instock. Minus the fit the boots are great looking! Love them but wished they fit.

Beautiful boot and the wide calf fits great. Unfortunately they are super uncomfortable. Really hard soles and my foot slips forward and toes get crunched in the stiff toe box. Thank you Zappos for easy returns. I'll keep looking!

I liked these a lot, but they're too tall for me, so sadly I will be returning them. I should have paid more attention to the shaft height... I'm 5'1" so the 18" shaft hit at the middle of my knee cap. I also agree with the other reviewers that these aren't really wide calf, which was fine for me, but others should be warned. The fuzzy lining was great, and I love the style. Too bad they weren't a few inches shorter.

Pretty boots. They fit well, and I have a very wide calf. I've gotten lots of compliments. The color brown is a dark brown and works with everything.

I couldn't get my foot into these pull-on boots. A zipper would help. Can't say how they felt as I could not even get them on. The service and delivery was exceptional. A good place to buy shoes. Just make sure you can fit into them.

I was originally skeptical about this boot because it doesn't have a zipper, but they are easier to pull on than I expected. The most difficult thing is taking them off. The shaft is snug around my calves when I'm wearing skinny jeans, so I wouldn't recommend wearing these on a day where you need to take your shoes off multiple times. It does have a tendency to bunch around the ankles, but I've found that common in almost all boots. As a store clerk once told me, if they weren't a little loose in the ankle, you wouldn't be able to walk. I would prefer a little more arch support, but the boots are fairly comfortable for wearing all day at work or on the weekends.

I truly loved these boots. I purchased them in chocolate brown. I had to order the black ones after receiving my order. Fits perfect with my jeans. I have received several compliments already.

Boots look great, but the lack of a zipper makes them extremely hard to put on.

Eh. These boots were way too wide for my 15.5" calves. Even in my skinny jeans, there was too big a gap at the top and they just didn't look right. The look is very slouchy and sloppy. Some people might go for that but it's not the style I was looking for. The boots also did not look or smell like real leather. They just looked cheap. When I opened the box the strong chemical odor was overpowering and enough to give me a headache. They are going back. The hunt for elegant riding boots that fit my athletic calves goes on. Sigh.

I really wanted to like these, but for being wide calf they barely went over my skinny jeans (I have 14.5 inch calves) and the soles were too slick. I have to say that the fuzzy lining inside was pretty cool though.

Extremely hard to get on and off as there is no zipper and the leather upper is very thin which gives this boot a very cheep appearance.

I have a 16" calf and no way could these be 17" as stated. Wouldn't even go part way up. Crazy to think a boot with no zipper would work in the first place. I also got the wide and they were not that either. Guess I'll try another brand, again. Ugh!

With no zipper, I can't get the boot up over my arch. It's pretty leather but not usable for me.

I ordered these boots. I really really liked them. I got them for the wide calf. However I did not notice that they didn't have a zipper and they are completely pull on/ups. The boot was too narrow and small. So if you have a wide foot and a wide calf you need to probably get one size bigger. Loved the boot though. So cute.

I have been looking for a tall, wide calf black boot and this fits the bill! I am fairly tall (5'10") and this boot hits me just below the knee. I also have "athletic" calves and the boots slide over my calves and skinny jeans with no problem. They are fairly comfortable; however, I have considered getting some insoles for them. The only con: since the shaft is lined, they pull down my jeans or tights so that I have to keep pulling my jeans/tights back up. Note: this boot is not the most "fashionable" boot out there, but I wasn't really in the market for fashionable so they are great for me. Overall, I really like the simple style and versatility of this boot.

These boots do not have a 17" circumference. I measured them, and it was 15". Super mad. They are going back.

These boots are a really great value. They are almost identical to a pair of Fryes I was looking at that were close to $500. The leather is soft and the boot is comfortable...not quite the Frye quality but an excellent alternative for this price. I have very wide calves and these fit - snugly - but they fit. A slight stretching at the shoe shop will make them perfect.

Loved the softness of these boots and everything about it except they didn't fit me in the calf. These were supposed to be wide calf, but without a zipper it is difficult getting on and off especially since they have a very tall shaft. I'm sad but returning. The ankles & foot fit nicely, darn.

These are nice boots. The wide calf is just barely wide enough for me. It's a bit tight over jeans, but perfect over tights. I didn't realize when I ordered that the boots do not have a zipper and was really afraid I wouldn't be able to get them on easily - I have wide calves, thicker ankles, and a super high ballerina arch, but there is enough give in these boots that I can get them on. A zipper would be handy, but it's okay as is. At first I thought they were a bit plastic looking but they've softened as I've worn them and they look nice and leathery.

The leather and workmanship of the boot was very nice. My daughter has large calves. I tried the boot on for size before Christmas as I have very thin legs. There was less than an inch of space with me trying this on. Therefore, this should be taken off of the wide leg calf category.

4/5 all around because they pinch a tiny bit in the toe, they don't have a lot of cushioning, and the toe is a bit too round to wear under jeans. Overall, I'm happy with them and I wear them often, but compared to other boots and styles I've owned, no one is stopping me to comment about them. At the same time, I can wear them all day and walk for miles in them, though I can feel my toes don't have a lot of wiggle room.

These boots will be going back. I wear a size 8 with athletic calves, and they barely fit over them. I got them to wear with my skinny jeans, and they barely fit over them making them look like stuffed sausages! My calves are a 16 inch circumference and these boots were snug on them without jeans on! So hard to find a good pair of extended calf jeans.

So almost-but-not-quite perfect. The larger size foot fits my calf but not my feet, the next size down fits my foot but is much smaller in the calf.

Was really hoping these boots would fit in the calf; I could not get them on and I have 16" calves and size 8 foot. I am disappointed I have to send back. The Lumiani Wide Calf boot fit perfect with the same item description. I think this needs to be updated for the correct calf measurements.

Calf size runs very small. Says its 17" but more like 15"; maybe it's the pull on style that gives no room and fits very tight without leggings. Now I have to return the boots.

They arrived. Nice color, leather wasn't the nicest of quality I was hoping for, looked a bit cheaply made. But they were nice enough to do with jeans, so, tried them on, and they squeezed over my 17 calf but forget putting jeans or leggings on to wear with them...they were so tight and then were bunched looking at the ankles. If you have a 17" wide calf, these will not likely fit you unless maybe you wear with tights alone...anything thicker like a skinny jean or legging just won't work, at least it did not for me. I'd have kept if they fit because I like the dark brown and the riding boot length but just not comfortable if I can't wear jeans or leggings with them.
