My daughter loved these, and of course they are well-made by Sperry. Unfortunately the calf was too tight to even put on although it's a wide-calf size. My daughter is a 6'0 tall athlete with muscular legs. I can't find rain boots to fit her. It's sad for a young woman to feel she is too big for any style because of her athletic build. I recommend measuring calf and adding 1/2 inch at least if needed.

This boot is beautiful but I cannot recommend because the boot is not one molded piece, but instead it's seamed and glued (unlike Barbour & Hunters). My daughter is not hard on her shoes and these boots split at the seam. They are wellies meant for puddle stompin' for goodness sake. Construction is a disappointment.

I bought these boots for my fiancée for Christmas and she loves them. The boots are lines and have a nice cushion soul. The best I’ve seen for the money.

I love these boots! They fit perfectly and I ordered my normal shoe size, true 7. They are snug around the foot but not too snug around the calves. I wore them in the snow yesterday and had tons of compliments!

The circumference size is definitely misleading. I bought these boots knowing that 16 1/2 in. usually is sufficiant, but for some reason they were way too tight around the calf thus causing the material around my ankle to bunch up. Unfortunately, I'll have to return.

Very comfortable rain boots with lots of cushioning. The quilted look also makes them look less like rain boots. I ordered a half-size smaller and the boots fit great. I normally wear an 8 1/2.

I bought these for my daughter-in-law for Christmas and they are beautiful (very Chanel looking). I purchased a size 7, which is what she wears and they fit perfectly. They are feminine yet durable looking! They were a hit!

These boots are amazing! I normally wear a size 6 but with the lining and wanting to wear them with jeans and thicker socks I went up a size. They were perfect! I usually have a BIG problem with boots never fitting my athletic calves but these were perfect. So much better than Hunter's, those are so cold and uncomfortable.

I got these about a week ago. I've worn them in both snow and rain and they are wonderful! Kept my feet warm and dry. I normally wear a size 8 and 1/2 and based on reading the other reviews, I went up a half size to a 9. They fit perfectly. I have larger calves and they fit really well, I can wear them with leggings and skinny jeans. I'm 5'2 and they come to about 1 inch below my knee.

I wore these boots three times, the rubber tore up the back (which entirely defeats the point of rain boots, they then become rubber buckets), so I returned them to Sperry for a replacement. Sperry has you fill out three options for replacements, so even if you only want the boot you bought that isn't an option. The poor quality boots are gone and now I am the proud owner of boots I hate. Don't get these boots and don't purchase anything but boat shoes from Sperry.

I bought the Pelican Too in the black quilted. The boots are very comfortable! I do feel that they fit a bit tight around my calfs (I am a runner) but with tights or skinny jeans they fit just fine. I am about 5'5" and the boots are a good full length for me. The decorative piece on the side sometimes comes undone. A bit annoying. Overall, I am happy with the purchase: the toe box is roomy and you can wear an extra pair of thick socks to keep warm, say, after a big Chicago snow storm and you have to take your pup for walk and play in the snow.

I got them, so excited and they were way smaller than what I expected. The boot was really narrow, even wearing them with no socks was terribly uncomfortable and I had to return them.

I've had these for less than a year and they've started to split in the back along the ankle seam. I don't even like wearing rain boots because they always seem chunky and unnecessary. They were great when I first got them but I don't know how they started to fall apart. I don't wear them excessively and only need them 2-3 months of the year (a few days hear and there in snow/slush). I'll be buying Hunter boots from now on since I know those last.

These are not wide calf, unfortunately, even though they had the largest circumference of any of the available tall rain boots. I really wish a company would make boots for women with muscular legs.

I really wanted to love these boots, but they were just too small in the heel and WAY too warm. Even though I had plenty of room in the toe, the heel rubbed and was very uncomfortable. And the fleece lining is appropriate maybe for the upper midwest, but was too much for a chilly fall day in DC. I wasn't even wearing socks (just stockings) and my feet were sweating. I'd rather have something that can be worn all year round with the right socks.

I bought these boots in a size 7, and I fluctuate between a 7 and 7 1/2. Unlike other reviewer, I do not think you need to size up on these. These had plenty of toe room, and since my calf is on the larger side, it is so difficult to get a boot to fit, and these did! They have an elastic stretch on top and they have a nice thin fleece lining. They go great with skinny jeans, and are very comfortable. I tried Hunter and Coach, both not as comfy as these. The Coach couldn't fit over my calf, and the Hunter doesn't come with a nice lining like these. I'm so happy with these boots, because it is a big deal for me when they fit over my calf.

I get tons of compliments whenever I wear these boots which has been almost everyday here in rainy Amsterdam. Go a size up to keep your feet warm with cozy socks but beware that your feet may sweat (is that just me?). I love my boots. The only disappointment is that the lining is coming out of the bottom of the boot. These look great with legging and even fit my athletic 6'0 calves with skinny jeans. Super happy with my purchase.

I have 16" calves and sz. 11 feet so finding boots is usually a pain. These boots fit my calves with room for jeans to fit inside but feel flimsy & look cheap. I am returning them. The Good: If you have wider calves (me) or ankles (not me), these boots are likely to fit well. They are true to size from foot size to shaft circumference. The Bad: When I pulled these boots out of the box, they were dull and smudged-looking, possibly due to the slightly tacky rubber texture. Compared to some of the rain boots I've looked at, the rubber is thin & has no structure. Also, I don't know if this is an issue with all wider shaft boots or the thin rubber but the shaft around the ankle was actually sagging into a U-shape above my heel.

So cute and unbelievably comfortable! I bought these for my daughter (she loves them!) but, we wear the same size so I wore them a well on our trip to Europe. They are hands down more comfortable than Hunter or any other rain boot I've ever tried. Heck! They are just the most comfortable boot/shoe ever that I have worn! Go Sperry! I will probably buy a another pair for myself!

Wow. This boot is super long and narrow. I have been an 8 1/2 for a good 20 years, in all types of shoes. I tried the 9 in this, and felt like it was trying to squeeze my foot into a sausage. There was a lot of empty room in the toe, though. This might work if you have very narrow, low-volume feet. The style is cute, but the buckle at the top to adjust the calf width isn't a true buckle with holes, so when I tried to loosen it, it just kept popping open. It defeats the purpose of having a wide calf opening if the buckle only functions in the tightly closed position.

LOVE! I first ordered the plain black and exchanged for the quilted version. They fit true to size BUT if you want to wear thick socks with them order a half size up. This is the first day I've worn them and didn't even bother taking them off at the office. So comfy, cute and stylish. I am a very happy customer! Never been disappointed in a Sperry!

These boots exceeded my expectations. They are very comfortable. There's an arch built in the sole and the sole is very cushiony. The rubber is very durable. They were true to size for me. I love them!
