After searching high and low for a simple equestrian-style boot, I resigned myself to the fact that I was going to have to shell over money. Then, I found these. I have a 17 inch calf and was a little worried after reading the reviews. Fortunately, these boots are amazing. Initially they were a bit snug, but they do stretch. I wore mine for a couple of hours with three pairs of socks and now they are perfect! These were a great buy for the price and a pleasant surprise to find a pair of boots to fit my high arches and wide calves. I would note that I ordered a half-size up.

These boots are nice, but the calf is not that wide. If you are on the muscular side, or if you just don't have skinny legs, don't bother.

These are great looking boots and I agree with another opinion, they look more expensive. I live in the NW where wearing expensive boots is challenging because of the rain. These fit the bill. Fit great, look great.

Love these boots! I have athletic calves and they fit great! I agree with a previous comment they do look more expensive than they are!

I've been searching for a pair of brown boots that were relatively inexpensive and would fit over my 16.5 inch calves. These are perfect! They were initially snug but they've stretched out a little and fit wonderfully over a pair of long socks and skinny jeans. They've also held up beautifully in the rain - I've worn them in the rain walking to and from classes and my feet stayed completely dry. I'm usually a size 9 but ordered a 9.5 to give myself a little room for thicker socks when it gets colder. I've been wearing these every day since I got them, and they go with everything!

I am able to wear these boots with a 17 inch calf over jeans. I agree the bunch a bit in the ankle and the material looks like real leather. Over all I am very pleased with the look, feel and value of these boots!

This is a nice boot! The quality is really nice and it seemed to be comfortable when I tried my pair on. Unfortunately they were too small in the shaft of the boot and felt a little too snug width of the foot. My calf is 17 1/2 so the shaft runs true to size. I unfortunately have very wide feet and these were not wide enough. I will be standing in them for long periods of time so I need something that does not need to be stretched to fit my wide foot. Even though they did not work for me, this product is really nice and I would recommend it to someone who does not have really wide feet and large calves.

I bought these a half-size up because I wanted room for my inserts and they fit just fine. I thought I needed the wide calf because my calves (just under 15") don't seem to fit in the "average" boots. But these are just too big for me. I think they would fit great for someone with a slightly larger calf.

I am glad that I bought these boots. I was looking for casual flat boots that I could run around in and still occasionally wear to the office during the colder months. These work fairly well for those purposes and look cute, especially with sweater dresses. I wish there were a bit more cushioning and structure to the sole, as they are very flat, but maybe an insert would help. I also do not think these feel very wide. I fit into most regular shaft styles as well, and these did not seem much roomier. Between that, a narrower than expected footbed, and the moderate comfort level, they are not the perfect boots that I have been searching for, but they definitely fit the bill for daily use.

I loved this boot online - and it was pretty cute in person also. Sadly, it is super tight on my legs and I am not able to wear them. My daughter suggested wearing them around the house to stretch them out so I will try that and if it doesn't work, I will have to send them back.

These boots were super cute, and even though I'd vowed to buy only real leather, I went ahead and tried these. My mom couldn't even tell they weren't real leather. I doubt most people could tell, and you don't have to worry about ruining your good leather in the snow and rain with these. They fit about as well as any boots (I never find boots particularly comfortable without an additional insole). Unfortunately, They weren't roomy enough to fit both jeans & my calves, in my case, since they're pull-on style rather than zip-up. That's the only reason I'm not keeping them. But a beautiful boot.

I ordered these boots in black and really loved them. I ordered a 9 W and I normally order 9.5 for boots, but I feel like there was enough room for thicker socks. Unfortunately I had to return these boots because I have to wear prescription orthotics and I could not get them inside the boot properly since they have no zipper. Otherwise I would have kept them and maybe even bought them in cognac color.

This boot looked great! I was hesitant as the description said synthetic leather, but it looked real next to another real leather pair I ordered. Unfortunately, my 17in calves did not fit in with jeans. The ankle did look a bit bunched, but nothing major. I'd say these are a great buy for their price.

I loved these boots when I first received them. They were slightly snug but stretched quickly. However, I am extremely disappointed with the way they wear-out. The color has chipped off terribly on the left toe/side of foot. The sole is pulling away from the shoe as well, and I am waiting for when it just comes completely off. They don't even look nice anymore. I've only had them for about two months. I wish they wore better as everything else I really liked about them.

These boots are gorgeous and extremely comfortable. However, just because the circumference is listed as being 17 inches, that just means that it is 17 inches at the opening of the boot. It tapers down, so if you are looking for 17 inches at the calf, this will probably fit a little snugly. Because they are knee high, they look a little funny with such a wide opening. The boots also hug to the inside of your legs - almost feels like static cling. Would not recommend for bigger calves, but they are gorgeous boots.

I am a size 7.5 and I have 17.5 inch calves. I ordered these boots in an 8 and couldn't even get my feet in them. No way were they going over my calves. These were cute but not wide calf. Had to send them back.

Calf is not wide enough to considered wide calf. It needs a zipper down the side. The style and color were all true and I really liked the look, but I couldn't get them halfway up my leg.

These are not the width that the company advertises. The company says they are 17 inch boots, however, I just took a measuring tape to the outside of the boots and they measure 16 1/4 inches. And that is the exterior with leather and fabric to take into account. Please stop advertising these as 17 inch boots, it was a complete waste of my time.

Not at all wide. I have several pairs of wide boots ordered from Zappos, etc. and these were very tight.

I loved the boot as soon as I saw them! Too bad they didn't fit. I read that people with 17 in calves could fit into them so I bought them and was super excited I instantly knew they were too small just by looking at them! Maybe there was a mix up but it does say wide in the boot but they look and fit like a medium. :(

This was too baggy around the ankle & tight around the calf even though it was for wide calves. Had to return. Also, toes felt cramped.

No way these were wide calf. I ordered them wide calf and wide width and these didn't fit. They also felt like plastic. I sent them back.
