This is the second pair of these boots that I have bought this month! I originally got the extra wide calf in a size 9½W. I have 17" calves and these fit loosely enough for me to wear over jeans. And the wide shoe width is perfect. I wear them at work everyday and never even had to break them in. I have lots of foot issues including plantar fasciitis and tailor's bunion. It is hard to find shoes that fit my wide feet comfortably. My pinky toe usually hurts. These boots do not hurt my pinky toe! But I bought the shoes in a wide width. They were perfect! On this second pair I decided to try just the wide calf style rather than the extra wide. It took some doing, but I got them on and they sort of stretch out a bit and are very comfortable now. I have spent a lot of money trying to find boots that I can wear every day and finally I have found the ones! I will probably buy the black or natural ones before the year is out. I am ready to throw the cheap crappy ones I have bought over the years away. These are keepers. The leather is soft but thick enough to not sag at the ankles. They are warm and they are taller than most boots and come up just to below my knee which is very slimming. I am 5'7" and they are perfect for my height. I highly recommend these, just in case you have not figured that out. Also, they arrived in two days. Great Zappos service as usual!

Love, love, love! I have been searching, buying and returning high wide calf boots. I have an athletic 17.5 calf (i really do walk a lot) but I have small ankles and narrow feet for the size of my calf. I have tried on at least 6 other styles and have been disappointed. I FELL IN LOVE WHEN I OPENED THE BOX. I ordered these in the red (my favorite color) and was so relieved that the color is just yummy! I can't think of a single complaint. These boots exude quality. The leather is thick and smells like Yummy leather! The stacked heal is wood (or a very good replication) I purchased the extra wide calf, medium width and perfect fit from the moment i slipped them on. There is plenty of room for jeans under them and i am a happy happy happy girl! Also... there is no zipper to catch or break... Just yummy delicious leather. Since they arrived yesterday, i have already walked 2 miles in them and not a single complaint other than I wish I had the money to have them in all 4 colors. I am definitely getting another pair of these yumtastic boots in another color. Which color to chose from... that is a very difficult choice!

Brands I'd also recommend: none, these are too amazing to compare to

So I'm posting for both the wide and extra wide calf as I was torn between the two. I had read the review from someone who bought the extra wides who has 19 inch calves and was "swimming" in them so she went down to the wides. I have an 11W foot and 19 inch calves and took her advice and ended up having to send them back. Zappos' information is correct - the wide circumference of 17 inches is totally true! I couldn't even pull the boot up, but scrunched the shaft down enough to get my foot in to try on for size. I'm hoping that I can reorder the extra wide calf in my size but it looks like quantities are super limited. Otherwise, it was quality leather, and size and width spot on.

I love these boots! I have never written a review before but these were worth it. I am a short woman only 5 feet, but curvy with athletic legs. I have never been able to find boots that fit my calves. Most boots scrunch on the ankles and do not pull all the way up. These did on the first try! I was so excited! They are super cute and fit high right below my knee cap. At first I was not used to them pulling up so high but my co-worker said they looked great and fit exactly how they were supposed to. They did have a small gap at the top about half an inch, which is perfect because they will easily fit over jeans. I only gave four stars on comfort because I have not worn them much yet, so I am not sure how comfy they will. Overall I am very happy! As far as size they were pretty true to size, if not a little big. I am usually a 6½ to 7, I ordered a 7 and they are a bit roomy but will be perfect with boot socks.

I was so excited I almost wet my pants! These boots are AWESOME! I have calves measuring exactly 17 inches. These boots fit perfectly with just about a pinky fingers width at the top. I am 5'9" and the tops of the boots hit just below my knee. These boots are super comfortable and soft with great foot support. They are styled like a classic English riding boot without the swooping Spanish top. These boots are pull on (no zipper), but that is no problem. I like the styling with no zippers or embellishments. These can be dressy or casual. Ladies, if you have athletic calves these are the boots for you! Thanks Zappos!

The color and material is amazing! I have a 17" calf and this fit with barely any wiggle room. I can fit skinny jeans and legging under them but that's it. It was VERY hard to get my foot into the boot at first, it took quite a bit of pulling but once I got them on they are very comfortable. I've worn them about 4 times, and they are stretching out the more I wear them. The toe is more pointed then I like but overall I would recommend these!

I had these shoes/boots for almost 3 months each time I couldn't get myself to wear them. They look like a cheap leather material and were stiff at the toe/feet. I had to return them not worth the price.

These boots are super cute. My calves are 19 inches at their widest point, and I could get these boots over the muscle in very thin skinny jeans with some elbow grease; there is a slight gap at the top (enough for a fingertip) between the boot and my leg. The height comes right to my knee joint. The leather is pebbled and soft, and the boot can be dressed up or down. I also like that the boot has a soft band of leather around the inside of the shaft at the very top, which keeps it from slipping down if you wear them with bare legs. I ordered a half size up in order to be able to wear them with some Wigwam wool socks, and I'm glad I did, they would've been too tight otherwise.

I love these boots. They are worth every penny spent. The leather is a great quality! Plus, the way it fits was just right. After breaking them in it got better as well. The calf is a perfect length and the heel is just enough. Five stars!

Love these boots. High quality leather, comfortable, and a good fit for those of us who don't have toothpick legs! I tried multiple pairs of boots and had almost relinquished myself to the fact that I just wouldn't find any. Most were too tight in the calf and many of the wider calf boots looked baggy and were simply too big. But these worked perfectly!

These are the most amazing boots. They are soft, comfortable and most of all fit. I would have paid three times as much for them (and have for less comfortable boots). Phenomenal. They are a little tricky to pull on and off, as they don't have zipper, but once you get the hang of it, it's not an issue.

Boot was comfortable, was able to slide it on easily over my 16 3/4 inch calves. Leather felt nice--10 wide was a little wide for me-thicker socks would have been nice, but then the shaft of the boot would have been too tight. Unfortunately, they didn't look appropriate with the skirt I wished to wear them with--needed a taller heel, so I will be returning them.

For me, it is almost a perfect boot. I just wish it had a zipper. Very comfortable boot, felt like it was custom made for my feet and fat calves. Also, it is a gorgeous red.

These are beautiful boots. But they lack zippers so I could not get them on. If I could have they would have fit beautifully. I am sorry that I have to return them.

They look even better than the photo! Very nice leather and good construction. The color, however, is more cranberry than the clear red, it's great! They do run a little bit narrow and at first I thought I'd made a mistake ordering the size 7, but they are stretching out and feeling better. They are said to be for those with wide calves but I don't have them and was worried that they might look too large, but they don't. I love them and get compliments every time I wear them. Glad I bought them.

These boots are fab! Beautiful, soft leather, true to size. 1st pair had a defect (seam open about 1" in back). Returned to Zappos and received replacement boots within days - excellent service! Highly recommend Zappos and these boots!

Perfect for athletic calves. Fits over my skinny jeans and leggings with a bit of extra room. Top of boot comes up high to the knee. I'm 5' 6" and wear size 8 regular width, size 8 - 10 in clothing. I have very high arches, but got into these just fine. I bought the brown and grey ones. I had to buy the grey in 8.5 as they were sold out of the 8s, so they're a little bigger, but thick socks work. A bit of sagging at the ankle but these boots have that soft leather slouchy look and feel. I walked all around NYC recently in these, probably at least 6 miles one day, and these were extremely comfortable.

I loved them. I wore them walking around Paris without even breaking them in and they were so comfortable. The one downside was that there is no zipper.

The color is not as "candy apple red" as it appears on my computer, and calf area not as wide as i thought it would be. however, the boot is simple, classy and a real find.

I LOVE this boot. It's soft, a great height (tall without coming up so high that I look short), and the extended calf is perfect for wearing over jeans. I have read reviews that have said this boot is hard to get on, but I haven't had any problems at all. With my feet, the boot slips on and off very easily. I am thinking of buying this boot in another color.

They look great and are very comfortable! I am 5'7" and slender; I was worried they would be too roomy but they're perfect with jeans, dresses, everything. I'm really happy I treated myself.

I picked up a pair in red, and I adore them. The leather is luxurious, the color is classy and not at all brash, and the fit is great. The only issue I have us that my foot doesn't slide in easily, takes a bit of tugging, but once they're on, these boots are extremely comfortable.

I am always struggling to find boots that fit my calf and are stylish at the same time. These boots seem well made and are a nice basic boot to have in your arsenal. I am 5'3'' and the top of the boots hit the bottom of my knee cap. They fit over my jeans but looked a little bunchy under the boot and fit much better with my AG legging jeans. As with my experience with most boots I have a feeling these will give and stretch a bit. Overall happy and will possibly consider a second pair. Love the overnight shipping.

Wow! Amazing fit and color! I ordered the grey after weeks of contemplation because at first glance, they appear very plain. Do not let this detract you; they are absolutely gorgeous in their simplicity. They pull on over a wide calf with ease and look beautiful. They are a substantial boot, while not being too busy. I highly recommend these!
