These are fabulous boots! I have high arches, wide feet and high insteps and these boots still fit! They look great and as comfortable as they could be given that they are quite high (at least for me).

Okay this boot was so comfy and I wanted so much to keep it but it looked ridiculous on. I am 5'6" and this boot went over my knees. It also didn't taper at all towards the top of the boot--IT WIDEN! I looked like I was swashbuckling around my living room. I hated to send them back as they were so comfy but the boot shaft was just too big. I don't have scary skinny calves--very average, but there was no way for these to work. Sad to send them back.

I ended up returning these boots because they were so big around my average+ calves. It must be the look but not for me. I loved the rest of the boot and they fit was accurate. I usually take a half size larger in a boot but wore my shoe size in this boot.

I had high hopes for comfort since I have lots of Born shoes in many styles and they all fit me perfectly in a size 6½. These boots definitely come through! They are certainly not as comfortable as lower heels would be - but for the height of these heels they are quite sturdy/solid feeling and very comfortable to walk in. I am short (5') so the boots come right up to my mid knee but not over it. For now this is OK with me since I do not like my knees anymore! I will have to see if the edge of the top rubs me the wrong way when I walk. I have thin calfs and there is plenty of room in these. For me this is good because the boots are shapely and jeans will fit inside much more easily than in other boots (even non-skinny jeans will fit better in these). I love the wedge heels and these are very sleek and dressy, but they could also be worn casually. They make my legs look longer both for the height of the heel and the length of the top. That is always a plus when my legs look longer. They are keepers!

I really like these boots. If you have athletics legs and want to have a fitted look, it will look really nice. Dress it up or down. I wear mine with leggings, and my lengthened my short legs. Too bad there's not a dark brown color. I would buy that as well.

I absolutely love these boots! They are precisely what I was expecting. Not only are they stylish and comfortable, they also have a wedge heel that gives me a little height. You will not be disappointed with these boots!

I am so very happy I ordered these boots. I've been looking for a gorgeous pair of suede boots I could actually wear all day and I have found them in these Born's (not a brand I would have ever considered, unsure why!). These are stylish and super comfy and love them! I got the blue to change up the shoe collection a bit and I'm really glad I did, they go with everything for the season.

These boots are amazing! True to all things Born, these boots are very comfortable. I have worn them with dresses and jeans; casual or dressy. I have received tons of compliments! You will not be disappointed with this purchase. They are well worth the price.

Loved these boots! They're comfortable and can be worn for hours at a time, but they're also stylish and sexy. I have athletic calves, and they fit fine, even over leggings or skinny jeans.

What can I say, I love this shoe! I have to concur with other reviewers that the arch of this shoe is a smidgen tight compared to shoes normally, but I am willing to overlook that because with my 16in calves and shoe size 37 (US6), I have found boots that fit and look great! The jeans suede is a perfect alternative to the black and the possibly dirt attracting tan colour (light colours and me don't go that well). =) When the boots first arrived, I couldn't close them past the widest part of my calf, BUT I pushed the boot shaft down until the zipper closed and voila, it fit! And I didn't have to scrunch it down too far, it looked like I'd been wearing them for day. The insoles are solid, maybe a bit too hard in the long run... but with some light cushioning. So far so good. Going to treat them with water/dirt repellent and they're good to go. Thank you Born and thank you Zappos! (Next day shipping and they got here Friday after placing the order in Thursday morning! Love you guy!)

I love the boot...the review before mine states it is tight across the toes because she has a high arch. I thought the same, but I wore them to a football game and walked up and down stands. I have to say they are now the most comfortable boots I own and I have around 20 pairs of boots. They are a little snug at first, but the mold to fit your feet perfectly! I am buying my mom a pair now for her birthday!

I got these in black suede, I ordered first in leather but the boot felt stiff. The heel is high but very comfortable except for the height. Also the suede was much more comfortable. The shoe has no plat form so you feel the 3 1/2 inch height. Comes up high over the knee. These boot look great. I have searched for tall black comfortable boots with a heel this is the best I've found.

From the photo on the Zappos website, I assumed that the "Sasso Suede" was cream colored--I was surprised to find that they are actually "Taupe" and that the box was labeled as such. This is a very beautiful boot, but the shape of the toe box was too narrow for my wide foot. Contrary to what some other reviewers said, I found the shaft of the boot fit like a glove and was very well contoured to end right below my knee.

Beautiful wedge boot! I'm a size 6 with 14 inch calves and these boots fit perfectly. But I was upset to find that it was tight across the top of the foot and I'm not sure if I will be able to survive an entire day with it digging into the top of my foot. I'm wondering if I need to order half a size up.

Love these boots; however, they would not zip up on my calves. While I do have large calves I thought based on others' reviews that these might fit. No such luck. I will have to reluctantly return them. I was thinking of buying a 1/2 size larger...just not sure it will do the trick.

I am a runner and on the larger-frame side (5'7", size 10-12 large, athletic build) and do not have small calves. I usually have to return boots for being too narrow (or for feeling narrower than their purported size) but the calves on these boots are super large. The cut right below the knee normally is a plus for me, but with a wedge (and a narrow, hard edged wedge at that) it just looks funny. Nice try, just no cigar. These are going back.

Cute boot. I had to return mine because the calf area was way too large. I have an average size leg and my legs was swimming in the boot.

Cute boot, but calf was too wide and boots came mid-knee, which was too high for knee boots and not tall enough for over the knee. I thought this was going to be my perfect new suede boot, but they are going back.

Nice boots but the top of boots above knee is very wide. I have wide ankles and legs and the top was gaping for me.

Nice boot, but sooooo tight across the top of the foot. I have moderately high arches but I've never experienced anything like this in any boot. Such a shame.

I wanted these boots to work so badly. I've been looking everywhere for comfortable wedge suede boots and these looked perfect. Unfortunately, these are not wearable. The calf circumference is about 2-3 inches bigger than it needs to be, I was swimming in them, even with jeans underneath. I have pretty normal sized calves too, they aren't thin at all. Super bummed to be sending them back. I hope the company reads reviews and decides to make these in a narrow calf size.
