This is a beautiful boot and I am so pleased with it. It is very well made, and the leather is soft and supple. I ordered this in a size 8 (my usual size) but probably could have bumped up to 8.5. I will be fine, but won't be able to wear it with thicker socks. I was pleasantly surprised that the shaft fit comfortably. I have a wider calf, and other boots that claim to have the same measurements as this one often didn't fit around my calf. It is snug, but should be fine with skinny jeans. My only complaint about this boot is that there is a pretty severe angle across the top of the instep. I just barely fit comfortably through there, someone with a higher arch in their foot might find that area pretty uncomfortable. Also, I do not have wide feet by any means, but these boots hug the edges of my feet pretty snugly. Anyone with wider feet would have a tough time with these boots.

I was looking forward to this boot as I have another pair of Born boots and they are really comfy. A few things...upon pulling this boot out of the box I was a bit surprised at the texture of the leather (I got them in black)...it's really roughed up and brushed. Make sure you view the image enlarged so you know what the leather looks like. When I first put one on, the footbed felt pretty comfy, but then I couldn't zip them up! The zipper was getting stuck at a seam of leather. After fighting with it for quite some time, taking it on and off, I finally got the zipper to move. Started walking around, ok, good and then went up the stairs. Ouch! The boot is so stiff and crunchy at the ankle that I couldn't even bend my feet to go up stairs. I'm so glad I tried this and did not just walk on a flat surface as I might have thought they were ok. Overall very disappointed in the comfort and quality of this boot.

I've been very happy with these boots. I stand in them for long periods and never feel uncomfortable. Was looking for a wide shaft and this is roomy, good for tucking jeans into. I would have liked them even more if the leather had been softer across the top of the shoe but the style of the boot is in keeping with the texture of the leather. They were pricey for my range but worth it. I expect they will last a while.

So this is the first pair of nice boots I have purchased and kept. I agree with other reviewers that the top of my foot is tight. I'm hoping that wears in. Other then that the comfort is great. I have a 16 in calf and I can wear skinnies with my thin leg warmers my hubby just got me!

These fit my foot perfectly. I liked the color and leather and everything. They were absolutely huge around my calves. I do not have that skinny of calves. Most other boots fit me perfectly. This is the first time I have ever seen such a gap between my leg and the boot. So sad. :(

I ordered these in the suede and size 9. The suede was unattractive and they cut off my circulation at the bridge of my foot. I reordered them in the leather and a size 10. Gorgeous boots and the 10 fit.

This boot is very comfortable and accommodating for a wide calf. I'm sending it back due to the rustic look of the leather. It is beautiful but looks like suede and that was not what I was in the market for. Not the dress boot I was hoping for.

Despite my high rating, I'm going to have to return the boot because the shaft circumference is way too big. I should have known this before purchasing, as it is advertised as 16 inches, but make sure you check before you buy. I have pretty strong calves, so if it's large for me, it's probably large for a lot of people. That said, The boot is really comfortable and I loved the barnyard color. Oh well.

Followed the advise of previous reviews and ordered a size bigger which was perfect. This is a great pair of boots that can be dressed up or down.

I absolutely love these boots. They are super comfy and the style is adorable. The shaft is on the wider side, but I actually like that look in a casual boot, and it's easier to tuck jeans into them and still have some space. The heel height is perfect for a casual boot that you'll wear all day. I have a lot of boots, but these, along with my other Born boots are my go-to styles for everyday.

Bought these in the brown leather and love them. They are well made, stylish and very comfortable. I have a wider calf (15inches) and was worried the circumference may not be accurate (have experienced this a lot with buying boots online). They calf circumference is accurate and fits like a dream! I'll be wearing these until they wear out.

At first I loved this boot as I thought it would be my go to every day boot; not too high heel, not too fancy but cute. But the boot just felt clunky and big and my calves were swimming in them. If I was going to keep the boot I would have taken them to be taken in in the calm and they were just a tad too high up on my leg (I'm 5'3). It had great potential, just didn't fit me quite right. Cute style though. Surprisingly no arch support, for a Born.

Beautiful boots, but be warned - these are not black! They are a dark charcoal gray suede. They are comfortable and well-made, so I'll keep them. Just disappointed about the color.

I'm beginning to think these reviews are bogus or maybe Born has over-corrected a sizing problem because I am having to order a FULL size DOWN. Started out a half size up, following advice of other reviewers, and they were boats. Actual size and half-size smaller still too much room in the toes and the shaft. Fingers crossed that a full size smaller is the trick. Wouldn't give it this much effort if they didn't have real potential. Love the leather, the style and the length. Just hoping to get the fit right!

I like these a lot, but did not like the finish on the black. I had tried on a pair of brown ones at a local store, who has them on sale so I might go back and purchase there. I like comfort shoes, and I'm not sure if these are a little too high heeled to be able to wear all day long.

Hallelujah! Finally, a boot for those of us with a wider calf. I normally wear a size 8 - went up to an 8.5 because the 8 was a bit tight across the top of my foot. I have 15.5" calves and these actually zip up with little issue! Great looking boot!

So bummed! Loved everything about these boots...except the color! I ordered the black ones, but they are not a "true" black. I would call them something in between black and a deep charcoal. Have to send them back because I want them to "blend in" with my black jeggings/leggings...but these won't. If you don't mind the "off-black" color, they are great. The strap across the top of the foot/arch is a bit snug. You can loosen it, however. I am always in between a 9.5 and 10. Ordered the ten and have no room for thick socks for sure!

Brands I'd also recommend: Uggs and Born are always my favorite!

It does fit small. I have been desperately trying to find a cute boot that fits my calves. Gorgeous boot, will exchange for a full size larger so I can wear hearvy socks.

They're so comfortable! I have a high arch though so I had to go up a full size and will only be able to wear these with thin socks or tights but I can walk for hours with no pain, I think they have good traction and they're SO cute! The leather is pretty soft though so you'll need to be careful to not scratch them.

I was very excited to order these boots but will be returning them. The foot itself seemed slim but the calf was huge. I will make certain and order one that can be adjusted or no bigger than 15". I'm 5'3, 119# & they swallowed my legs which are muscular. That is the only reason for my return!

These are cute boots. I like the leather and the distressed color. I ordered the black. The width of the shaft was very weird, though. Although I do have slim calfs, these shafts were huge. They look really strange, so alas, I have to return these otherwise cute boots.

Loved the look of these boots and I so wanted them to fit me, but unfortunately they were just too tight over the top of my foot to be comfortable. If that could be fixed, these would be the perfect boots.

Returning because the color is somewhat charcoal gray and not a true black. Also a little narrow for my foot. Was surprising, given that I already had a BORN boot in similar style with same heel that fits great.
