Great boots! This is my third David Tate purchase and I remain pleased. Boots are made well and are holding up well. The boot shaft was plenty large enough to have jeans tucked. I am 6'1" and the boots come within 2 inches of my knee, so they are pretty tall. The only problem I foresee is the need to buy a better insole as the one it comes with doesn't seem to offer the support I need - a problem easily solved.

These boots are super cute. The style is great and the feel of the leather is great. I loved them until I tried them on. The circumference of the calves is supposed to be 18¾", however that is measured from the very top opening. They do not accommodate for extra width that is the typical widest part of the calf which is about 3-5"down from the opening. This area was markedly more narrow. My calves are about 17½-18" inches and I could not get them zipped up even halfway. The hidden stretch insert is also at the top extending down about 1½" where the boots are 18" in circumference; there is zero stretch at all along the entire length of the boot shaft where the calf extends down and meets to the ankle. The stretch feature provided no benefit, in my opinion. As far as the base goes I am typically an 8 to an 8½ and I ordered a 9 so I could wear thick socks with them and even without socks the 9 fit pretty well. If between two sizes I would size up half a size. I really wanted these boots to work. I was really disappointed.

I loves this style and they looked great out of the box but I ignored other reviews that mentioned the calf size. It is narrower at the widest part of the calf. I could not get them zipped up all the way. Really too bad and they are beautiful boots and the foot bed felt very comfortable.

Like the other reviewers, I could not zip these up--they narrow too early, which makes it impossible to zip at the widest part of the calf. They are really pretty and I probably would have kept them had they zipped, since the footbed was comfortable and they were stylish. Sigh.

I received these boots and cannot rate them for comfort as I could not get them zipped past my ankle. So much for a wide shaft, unless I give new meaning to the word. Now that I feel terrible about myself, I'm off in search of a pair of boots that actually mean what they say. These boots are not wide shaft.
