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.

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 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.

Love them! Perfect combination of comfort and style, plus they were still easy to take off after a few hours of walking around. I ordered half a size up to accommodate heavy socks, definitely recommend doing so as my regular size would have been too small.

Like the boot. They are exactly what I wanted a stylish rain boot. From previous reviews I thought they would be tighter on calf. I ordered my normal size 7, but may have been able to go a size smaller. But, have room for a warm sock!

These are fantastic in every way except that the calves are enormous. Even with jeans on, I can put both my hands inside the boot while I'm wearing it! It has decorative little buckles on the side that you think will tighten the calf up - they do not - they're plastic and don't actually hold with any tension. Purely decorative. I regret getting them and it really detracts from an otherwise perfect boot. However, I don't know other brands to be able to compare it, maybe they're all being made ginormous to accommodate bigger and bigger calves.

This is a real rain boot! I have had trouble finding boots that fit my calves and after trying on lots of styles at Target, DSW, etc. I finally turned to Zappos! I was nervous about buying this boot because a lot of women with larger calves were complaining they didn't fit...and they are snug, but they do fit! I have a 16.5" calf and any bigger would probably be a problem. I can't fit a jean in them which is a bummer, and mostly why I gave it a 4 star, but I can wear them with leggings and just roll up my jeans when necessary so it works for me. They are warm, comfortable and totally adorable! They come up a little high on me, higher than I expected as they are basically to my knee (I have sort of short legs) but I liked everything else about them so I am definitely keeping them!

These are the most comfortable rain boots I have ever worn! Doesn't that seem like an oxymoron? The inside of the boots is lined, so its really soft and warm. I bought the navy plaid ones and the picture is true the color, maybe a TAD brighter in reality. These do run SMALL! I'm usually an 8, so I got an 8 since they don't have 1/2 sizes and they are snug. They're definitely wearable and even though they are a little small, I will probably still keep them because of how comfortable they are.

These boots are a great boot, just didn't meet my needs so they are going back. The red/orange color is much redder than I needed. The boots felt good, a little taller than I expected, but wide enough to accommodate my athletic legs.

Comfortable, stylish boots that will keep your feet dry but looking good in the wettest of weather. These are not walk-the-runway boots, they have more of a practical quality. The only flaw (if any) I would say is that while these pull-on boots are very easy to put on, I have trouble taking either the right or the left one off every time. But that's just me.

These are really cute boots, and very comfy. Despite the elastic panel in the top edge, they were too tight for my calves. This is a common problem for me as I am 5'9" size 12 but with smaller size 8 feet. How do plus size gals ever find a tall boot if I can't?! It seems the cheap-o $20 rain boots are always roomy enough but they wear out in a year. These had a nice nappy lining too them which only compounded the problem as I could get straight legged jeans into them but with the friction of the nappy material, the boot shaft scrunched down as I pulled them on. They would have been great if I wore them bare legged. I have a size 8 wide foot, so usually wear a size 8.5 M. I ordered size 9 in these and with normal socks they were a perfect snug fit. Not a size 9. If I really had a size 9 foot I would have had to order up.

I love these shoes! They are comfortable, keep my feet warm, and are easy to drive in. My only complaint is that the straps on the sides won't stay, they come undone all the time which can get very annoying. Other than that I highly recommend these shoes.

I've wanted a pair of rain boots that I could also wear in the winter while running errands. These are wonderful! I purchased that olive green ones. Although they're lined, I"d suggest wearing a thicker pair of socks if you plan on standing in snow. Also, one of my "buckles" doesn't stay closed. Other than that, these are fabulous and super comfy!

These boots are exactly as cute as they look online, I've had numerous compliments. They could stand to be a little warmer though. I had a pair of Tretorn rain boots last year that I was able to wear through half the winter before switching to snow boots. A pair of warm socks would do the trick most likely, but they ran a little small as well. Had I known I would have gone up a half size. As is they fit snuggly but not uncomfortably, but only with regular socks on.

I've had these a few months now and like them a lot. Cute and easy to slip on and off. I have thin calves, so they are quite roomy. The only quibble is the buckles don't stay buckled for longer than five minutes, which makes me a little nutty. Gotta find a way to secure them.

Love the boots, but after 2 tries, the right boot buckle came defective, no grip to tighten, and flaps after an hour of wear. Had to return both pair...so sad.

I love the look of these but unfortunately the 15-inch shaft height meant the 16.5-inch calf size was a tight fit. I squeezed leggings in but I don't think I could fit skinny jeans into these boots. If the proportions work for you though I'd say go for it because they're really cute. I will have to return and order a pair with a slightly shorter shaft. Oh well!

These boots are a solid choice. They keep me warm and dry while looking stylish. I would definitely size up, especially if you would like to wear thick socks with them. Otherwise, these are great boots with excellent traction. I would recommend them to a friend for sure.

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 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 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.

Brands I'd also recommend: Kamik, Bogs

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.

I bought these boots last year and love them. I love the design and that they are not your typical rain boot. However, the shaft has split with the quilting design around the ankle on both boots, so that's frustrating.
