These boots are exactly what I wanted. The shaft is roomy enough for my slightly larger than normal calves and they are comfortable enough to wear all day (I'm always on my feet, so that's important!). My only complaint is that they have scuffed very easily, but I'm hoping that I can pull that distressed-old-boot look off in a year or so when it looks really weathered.

I was a little nervous to purchase these boots because it seems like wide calf boots are too wide and regular boots are too tight, the boot search has become such a pain! These boots fit exactly how I want them to, I actually like that they do not have a zipper - to me it makes for a cleaner look when you have larger calves, in my opinion. I do not know how these feel after a full day of wear because it really hasn't been cold enough for boots yet in NC; but wearing them around the house for an hour or so wasn't bad at all. I'm in between sizes since having my baby so I ordered up to the nine and they do not feel big or floppy on me. My foot is average width though. Great pair of boots that I am happy with so far, I would recommend to a friend with larger calves!

I love Fitzwell boots - but these are pull-on -- very hard to do if you have wide feet. Mine would not fit - which is why the 1 star on comfort. I wanted to love them, but they have to go back. Also, if you buy the great quality Fitzwell boots all the time, as I do, these do not seem to be the same quality.

This is a one season boot. Don't expect to be wearing this one for years to come. That being said, it got compliments and has been worn a lot this past fall/winter. If you're fine with something a little more disposable, this isn't a bad bet.

Cute boots. They fit fine and are what I had in mind. One big drawback is that the inside is uncomfortable and the seams rubbed on my feet. Would have been nice if they were a bit more finished and padded inside. I'm keeping them and hoping that thick socks or maybe some padded inserts will help.

These are super cute but the ankle area is too big so when you walk, it looks weird and big. Total bummer because they are super cute but I have to return them.

Meh. These are nice and basic and fairly cute, so I'm keeping them for now. Not super comfortable and I could have used another inch of calf width. Just okay, but a good wardrobe staple.

The boots are good quality. I have large calves and they are the only boots that have actually been loose! Unfortunately, because of the large calf the ankle is really wide and it just doesn't look right. I will be returning these.

I love the look of these, and was oddly pleased when I tried them on and they were too big! (That doesn't happen too often when you wear a size 12!) The Wide Calf is not a lie with these boots - they are wide! If they were a standard calf, I would order an 11 and give them a 2nd try, but I had to send these back.

These boots did not fit my 17 inch calves. I have ordered other boots from Fitzwell and loved them - but these bag at the ankle and don't fit over the widest part of my calf. Back they go.

I have been wearing these for a month now and they fit wonderfully. I have 15" calves and I can wear these boots with any type of pants, even boot cut jeans! But I noticed that there is already a hole on the front seam where the shaft starts. I finally find boots that fit and look good, but they are not built for durability. I wasted money for something that does not last!

These boots were pretty disappointing. They're super narrow, and I've never had an issue with shoes being wide enough for my feet before. It was hard to get them on without a zipper. My calves are 15.5" and there wasn't enough room to comfortably fit jeans with these boots. The leather looked rather cheap too, and just overall not the style I was going for. They're definitely going back.

I ordered this boot because I have plump calves and because I was hoping the simplicity of the design would have a slimming effect. Unfortunately, they looked absolutely comical on because the shaft width does not narrow at all as it descends to the foot. The resulting effect is that one's ankles are the same width as one's plump calves. Lovely. Hard footbed, too.

Well, I finally found a pair of boots that fit my calves but unfortunately the style is just kind of weird. They are incredibly stiff and almost look like a short-ish cowboy boot. Because they are so stiff, these boots are in uncomfortable. Maybe eventually they would wear in but the style isn't really that flattering if you are short and have big calves, like me. Another pair of boots are an epic fail.
