I ordered these boots because 1) they were marked "wide-calf” and 2) they are classy looking. When I tried them on, I was very disappointed that they did not fit in the calf as I had hoped. I have an 18" calf and these would only zip half way! I understand the description states the calf width is 17.5" but that is for a size 8...I ordered a size 9.5. Sadly, these will be going back. BUT overall, these shoes are absolutely gorgeous! The color reminds me of cognac...it's a reddish brown, not brown.

Fell in love with this boot the look and the comfort! However, to date I have had the heel glued back on and the strap around the top came off so the value that I paid for the boots took me to the original price, such a disappointment!

I was concerned when I first put these on that the wide calf wasn't wide enough for my leg, but don't worry! It stretches out as you wear them and you don't get gaps around your leg from it being too loose. The boot is very attractive and versatile -- good for casual and work attire.

I love these. I pretty much haven't taken them off since they arrived. I did need to add gel insoles for support (hence the 3-star review for comfort, but with the gels they're super comfortable), but I also have sensitive feet and back issues. I love these.

Fit according to size,which allowed me to place my orthotic inserts into the boot, nice to find a boot that accommodates a full calf.

I was hoping that these would live up to the positive reviews. I found them snug and they bunched at the ankle. They also felt narrow.

These boots are comfortable and very stylish. The manufacturing quality is average. But they aren't expensive so I didn't expect great quality. Overall, I'm glad I purchased them. Very cute.

The shaft is not what I would consider wide. I do not think it is even really 17.5 inches. Wish they would have fit had to return them.

I ordered these because I haven't been able to find nice looking wide-calf boots anywhere that I can wear over my jeans. I got them, they're reasonably pretty - definitely don't look like super high quality leather, but good enough. The foot is a bit narrow, and the calf was just barely wide enough for me to zip it up, so back they go.

I agree completely with the reviews that mention that these do not have a wide calf. It took me a few weeks just to break them in to the point where I could zip them all the way up. I wore them out less them 10 times before the sole of the toe on one boot and the sole of the heel on the other completely detached from the boot itself. Not so fun when that happens on a rainy day!I am getting a refund for these boots! I wouldn't recommended these because they are clearly poorly made, although they are really cute and look great.

When the boots arrived, I was so happy because they fit my wide feet and my wide calves! They looked great and felt great. Now, two months later, the soles have come off. I wish I had read the posted reviews before I bought these. They are not made well. The look and feel are great, but they are made poorly.

I received these boots in the mail on a Thursday. By Sunday the sole on one of them had come off and the heel was dangling off. After having them for a couple days, I was so disappointed since they are really cute and fit well. Thanks, Zappos, for letting me return them without any questions asked. That's awesome customer service.

I got the shoe in the mail and I was surprised because the leather is much cheaper than it looks in the video. But I digress. A month later, after two wears, the sole comes off. Not a good quality shoe, save your money and buy a shoe that will last.

Beware wide-calf ladies, these are not wide calf! My calves measure between 17½ to 18 inches, and these would not zip. The foot is extremely narrow as well. Aside from that, they are extremely cute boots, and seem to be well made. I really wish they had worked out.

These boots are beautiful! The foot size seemed true however they were very narrow in the calf. I could barely zip them up over thin jeans. Once I was able to get them on, they did look gorgeous, but I will be sending them back. I wonder if I might have been sent the regular calf version of the boot.

These are cute. However they do not seem to be designed for human feet. They are narrow, stiff, and do not provide any arch support.

I should have listened to the other reviewers. These looked cheap and while they were wide calf I couldn't even zip them up. I am not sure why these are so narrow. I have another pair of fitzwell boots and they fit well.

This boot is listed as wide calf. My calf is a size 16 and these boots didn't fit. This boot is also very narrow. I wear a size 7 and ordered an 8 . The boots were snug.

Love this boot! It is fun style and has great sole. I bought a size 8.5 -- I'm 5'8"ish and have 16ish calves. Zipped no problem. Ankle a little big, but not bad. They aren't real leather or fancy...more play boot with jeans. Skinny jeans zipped up inside easy! So far they are comfortable. And price couldn't be beat. Will most likely buy a second pair.

I liked the boots alot however I do feel they run very narrow. I have an average foot, never buy wide shoes but would definately need wide in this boot. I will try the wide width.

I love everything about these boots. They are very comfortable. They run true to size and width of my order. The calf is perfect for my medium side calf.

I am so happy I bought these boots. I have a wide foot and these are true to size and were very comfortable from the moment I put them on. I have worn them several times when I needed to do a lot of standing and walking all day on concrete flooring. I love that they are made for that yet still look great with a skirt. I am happy with the quality of the materials too. I needed new black boots this year and I had already order and returned 3 pair. I won't be returning these, I hope I can get some in brown too.

I just received these, in black, and I'm very pleased with how pretty they are. I normally wear a 9 and 1/2 WW but ordered these in 10 WW- just as you may read elsewhere, the width of the foot bed is not as generous as I expected but the only place they feel too narrow is towards the back of my foot where they may stretch with use. My calves are 17 inches and I can just manage to fit these over some skinny jeans, so if you have calves any larger than 17 I don't think this style will work for you. Overall, they are lovely, tall boots and I think the leather look with velvet gives this boot an expensive and flattering look. I'm looking forward to wearing them with jeggings and some long skirts.

The felt/velvet upper was not of very good quality and came creased and wrinkled, so not what I was looking for and foot of boot runs narrow.

Great fit, liked how they looked but fell apart within the first 30 days, liked them so glued the heel back on but when I went to wear them this winter the zipper on one would not work. For once Zappos did not stand behind their product and suggested I contact Fizwell. In reading the other reviews I wonder why they are still selling this?

They are marked as "wide calf" but I could only zip the boots about half way. So disappointed.
