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.

Three weeks of intense rain and snow in NYC and these made me feel like a superhero! These are excellent rainboots! Two thumbs up!

At first I loved these boots - an adorable fleece lining, comfortable sole, and, for a rain boot, very stylish. They're comfortable and fit perfectly (and I have big calves). I purchased them about 3 months ago, and granted, I do a ton of walking, but the boots have already split on the seams. It's in the middle of winter (aka, slush season) so I need a good pair of rain boots, and these unfortunately just didn't make the cut. I would recommend them if they aren't your go-to every-day boot. But if you do a lot of walking around (as I do) and put your shoes through a little more wear-and-tear than your average pedestrian, I think you might be better off searching elsewhere.

Less than 1 year into owning these boots, the plastic cracked and they no longer keep my feet dry. This has happened to some of my rain boots in the past but only after several years of wear and tear. This pair didn't even make it 11 months. I do NOT recommend this brand.

I wear size 8/8.5 shoes, have wide feet and find that buying a size up with Sperry boots works for me. These are comfortable and definitely keep the rain out. Do get a set of socks to go with if you need to keep your feet warm.

I bought and loved these boots. They were really comfortable, cute, and hey they were Sperry so I figured I'd have them for a good long while. Unfortunately after a few years the seam on the back blew out and they started to leak. Sperry doesn't seem to have a product guarantee that is easily found on their website. Buyer beware - may not last as long as you think.

I wear a size 8-8.5 in normal shoes. My calf measure at 14.5" I needed boot I could wear with dress pants and skinny jeans for a trip to Chicago in February. The fit was fine, but the heel was too short for my dress pants. I thought the looks was okay, nothing special. Looks very industrial. The Sperry logo looked cheap. These are good strictly for puddle splashing as far as looks. I wanted something with more style. I did not get to test these for "waterproof-ness." They do have a cute purple lining.

I bought these literally just over a year ago and have worn them maybe ten times in Florida. Yesterday I wore them and they leaked and by the end of the day they were coming apart at the seams. I'm hoping that I will be given some sort of let off given these are specialized shoes for not your everyday wearing occasion. Throughout the year I sorted them in the box they came in under my bed in a controlled atmosphere. Although I have worn them on other rainy days yesterday was truly the first walking through a big puddle situation and they failed miserably. I'm gutted as I loved them.

This was the smartest purchase I made this winter season! These aren't technically snow boots but they have served me well through polar vortices and the never ending snow storms. They don't keep my feet warm but they do keep them dry. My only complaint is the side buckles at the goring don't stay looped through so they flap around.

Extremely disappointed with these rainboots. I've bought cheap $15 rainboots from Target in the past that have lasted me years, but these boots lasted a mere few months before the rubber at the side of the boot (where it bends as you're walking heel to toe) split open. Since then the tear as gotten bigger and bigger. I thought Sperry was a company that designed quality shoes, but I'm very frustrated that I spent so much money for faulty rain boots. (You will see that the stars above do attest to the fact that these boots are very comfortable and provide plenty of support for someone like me who has high arches.)

I really liked these boots until the rubber started ripping after only about 10 wears. Thankfully Zappos is letting me return them. The tabs on the side do not stay latched which I think looks ridiculous. Great style but for the price I expected better quality.

These were cute, but a little too big and I just didn't love them. I normally wear a size 5.5 and ordered the size 6.0 and they were too big even with thick socks. I would exchange them if they had a size 5.0, but alas...they do not. Bye bye shoe!

I bought these and I love them, they look so cute and are way more affordable than the hunters and honestly cuter in my opinion. I recommend getting a half a size larger than your regular shoe size!

I think these boots are amazingly comfortable and certainly keep my feet dry. I actually did not find them to be tight on the calves at all and have no problem tucking pants into them, with room to spare. The only complaint I have are those buckles. They're completely non-functional (they did not help tighten the boots since I found them to be pretty loose around the calves) but tend to come loose. I had to superglue them down, which has been moderately successful. I bought these in the olive green, which looks like it's not offered at the moment.

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 love these boots! They have just enough detail to them to not be too plain, but they still match a lot of clothes. I have worn them shopping several times and they are also very comfortable.
