I love these boots. They fit my calf perfectly, love the color and style. Unfortunately they are just too tight on top of my right foot. I tried going up a half size, it was still too tight and hard to get my right foot in and yet the foot size felt too big. Sad to have to return these boots.

Gorgeous boots! I was looking for a boot with a wider calf where the ankle wasn't huge and saggy and these fit the bill. I'm able to fit a pair of skinny jeans inside them, snuggly! The zipper is a bit stiff, but I'm hoping it will loosen up with time.

I like my boots pretty and practical -- these fit the bill. The caramel leather is gorgeous and rich looking in person, the lug sole lends traction, and they are water resistant. But I have to say I'm surprised by the reviews that found the boot to be narrow. Having muscular calves (15") has never been an asset when buying tall boots, but the Salen (in my regular size 9.5) fits with plenty of room to spare. They are comfortable right out of the box and do not pinch at the ankle or high on the calf. This is my first pair of Ariats, but assuming they wear as well as they look and fit, it will not be my last. One caveat: the boots are marked "water resistant" and not "waterproof" as listed in the description.

Brands I'd also recommend: La Canadienne, Frye

Beautiful leather, very well made boot, sturdy but nice-looking style. On my foot, it was much too loose in the heel. There was also too big a gap around the calf (my calves are 13.5). FYI the soles are made of synthetic, not natural rubber. Have to return.

Beautiful, sturdy boot. The right one is a tad wider at the opening at the top than the other, but I didn't notice until after I'd worn them outside so I'm a little disappointed about that. Hoping the other side will balance out with wear. I'm normally a 6 1/2 and had to size down to 6. After you break them in - which doesn't take too long- they are super comfy. As has been mentioned, they are not waterproof but water resistant.

Sadly, the inside calf circumference is 14.5 inches not 16 inches.I'm a true 16 inch calf with room to tuck jeans... can't even zip them up half way.... Lovely boots, I'm an Ariat girl and have 4 pairs of fat babies. Now I have to send these lovely boots back because of wrong sizing. I'm so bummed!

These boots fit fine on my calves; I have 16" calves and take a size 11 boot. There was a small bit of room to spare. I didn't have the problems mentioned in some of the other reviews of the boots being to narrow to zip up in the lower portion. These boots fit well and were very comfortable, however I don't think I am going to keep them. It's difficult to find a shoe with a feminine profile when you take such a large size, however, whether I wear my jeans tucked in or out of them, the foot of these boots looks very manly to me.

These are beautiful and incredibly well made. Unfortunately they are only wide the top 2 inches of the boot and were much too tight on most of my leg. I'm so sad as they looked nice with pants, skirts, and jeans. Enjoy them, those of you with skinny legs.

I just received these boots and I was very excited given the reviews. It is a lovely pair of boots, and the calf width was not a problem...unfortunately though, my foot was swimming a little in the boot and the ankle area was thus a little baggy. I wear size 11, so it was promising to hear from other reviewers that it was true to size, unfortunately it'll have to go back. Great material though and I wish they fit properly..

I have a 15 inch calf so I thought the 16 inch calf circumference was going to be perfect, unfortunately because my shoe size is a 6 1/2-7 the calf circumference was smaller too. I very sadly had to return the boot.

Unfortunately I had to return these as the calves were very narrow, even though they're listed as having a 15 1/2" circumference (for a 7.5). One boot I could not even zip. It seems that the calf circumference must be measured closer to the knee. If you don't have wider calves, you'll love these boots. The leather work is gorgeous, the style is wonderful and they look like they'll last forever. They are a bit heavy though.
