They are perfect. I bought them because I wanted a boot that could be worn with a skirt or leggings and these fit the bill. They could be dressy or could be casual and I love that about them. As for sizing, I went with a 1/2 size bigger and I can feel that my right foot is slipping a bit more than I would like. I'm wearing thin boot socks or tights with them, but they will slip a bit. Otherwise, they are very comfortable. I also have a big calf and while these were supposed to measure 15"...they fit perfectly and are not snug on my calf at all. My calf measured exactly 15" so I was nervous, but it really is a great fit. I also don't have any slouching, but that's probably also due to the size of my calf. A win win for me!

These boots slouch and do not stay up if you wear them under skirts then they rub together and make walking uncomfortable.

I absolutely love this boot. The leather is soft, the look is gorgeous. I am returning it for a larger size however. My wide calf fit, but I want a bit extra room for jeans.

These boots came today and I had them on in less than a minute. I love them...but...I need to return them for a half size larger. They are narrow, squeezing my toes, and with socks, would be impossible to put on. I didn't find them too high - I'm 5'5", but they did fit my wide calves - again not enough to wear jeans inside. I'm hoping the larger size will be just perfect. Buy the next size up and you will not be disappointed. They are great.

Nice grey color, which is hard to find! Again, this boot has a small toe box, and loose heel. But I am keeping them. Love the tall shaft that is big enough for jeans too. I dont find any slouchy problem that other reviews mentioned. Nice boot for the money.

Nice color, small toe box and loose in the heel. Love the tall shaft that is big enough for my larger calf and jeans! I have 7 pairs of this boot, they seem to run small so I recommend going up a 1/2 size.

These are great looking boots. They have a western feel without being cowboy boots. The foot felt true to size, but the shaft was too tall and wide for me. I am 5'2" with skinny legs.

The boot is the perfect blend of simple elegance and country chic (as am I). well made and beautifully crafted to wear over your skinny jeans or under that sun dress. I chose the brown leather instead of the suede as it is easier to take care of. If you don't plan on caring for a boot like this there's no point in buying it. especially when you can't beat the price. I am a boots and jeans kinda girl and these fit my lifestyle perfectly. They are comfortable and so easy to wear. I have small feet and a small frame to match so the sizing was no problem. Kudos, Diba.

I absolutely love this boot. I was looking for a cowboy style boot as I am tiring of the riding boot style. In the reviews it stated it was slouchy, however in the leather version it does not slouch at all!!! Very happy with this fashionable, comfortable boot!

Absolutely satisfied with Zappos and the Diba boots...I was hoping a 6.5 would fit, but they didn't so I have to return them and maybe wait for a 7 to become available? Thanks for the great and easy shopping experience Zappos. I will be back.

This boot is amazing. I am between 5' 6" and 5' 7", size 7 and the boot reaches really high, right to the bending point of my knee. The leather is really nice and stiff, no slouch at all. I have pretty small calves and there is nice room, but, again, since it doesn't slouch it looks rustic and clean, instead of pirate-y. It definitely runs a bit big in the foot, I am between a 7 and a 7.5 and the 7 is a little big still. Nothing some knee high socks won't fix! Only possible downside is that it is a bit light on the sole traction, but I have little stickies to help with that.

Love these but mine came with spots on the right toe. No problem, as Zappos has the best customer service on the planet! Zappos emailed me the return label, and already sent the replacement boots! Wow! Just go a 1/2 size up if you like to wear socks in your boots, I go barefoot in my boots so my 7.5 foot just fit in the 7.5 of these. I ordered the blue suede (seriously, you never see that color!) in an 8 so I can wear my dark skinny jeans, socks and big sweater! Cozy! Can't wait for those to get here! Great boots, perfect heel, love the tall shaft with room! A+ Boots!

Love these! Bought every color! Quality boot for a great price! I'm a boot girl everyday, and stumbled upon these. I completely disagree with the first review that said they don't stay up and slouch. These wear nicely and are gorgeous and comfortable with the perfect heel height. My one warning is if you want to wear socks with your boots, I do not, go a 1/2 size up.

In my quest for the ultimate boot, I came across these after hours of searching the internet. I originally was looking at Old Gringo boots, and somehow came across these. I love the tall shaft, with room for a normal calf! The color of the leather is good, matching wood heel is nice. I hate a light heel on a dark boot! These are great boots for a great price! My only warning is they run snug, I do not wear socks with boots as I don't like my foot to slip around, so my 7.5 foot fits, but I wouldn't be able to wear a sock, so if you like socks in boots go a 1/2 size up!

I absolutely love the look of these boots. They have a vintage look without being too worn looking. I was trying to decided between these and the Frye Carson Lug boots. I went with these because of the price. Unfortunately I didn't notice the 15" circumference in the description before ordering. The calf is really wide. My leg measures about 12" so they are very loose & I can see how they might slouch over time. I'm so disappointed to have to send them back. Very good purchase otherwise!

These boots are so pretty. Unfortunately the shafts are a tad high for my 5' 6" frame, and were a little too loose around my calves. Would work with jeans, but my 'go to' is boots with skirts/dresses and bare legs.

These boots fit true to size, but just a little narrower than marked. I got a size 8.5 and they fit nicely over my straight leg jeans and 15" calves. They're good looking boots and perfect for someone who wants a classic, plain "vanilla" style...and who doesn't have wide feet like me!

These were pretty in black, I didn't think them slouchy, but had to return due to my skinny little calves. The boot to me had a slight bell shape to it, which would probably make a normal calf look nice and shapely. On me, my leg just didn't look right with the extra space in that shape. (My calves are 13" and these boots are around 15".) Wish I could have looked good in them, because they were really nice for the price.

These are great for quality and the shaft is quite a bit larger than the average, but the actually boot fits very large. While I usually wear a 10.5-11, the 11's were way too big for me. However, I do have long, narrow feet. On style...they were very plain looking, more so than I anticipated based on the pictures, but the leather seems to be a good quality leather. Unfortunately, I am going to return these.

Great boots. A small heel, plain no adornments which I prefer. Easy on and off despite no zipper. A little large in the calf, plenty of room for thin to medium calves.

Love these boots! The only reason I gave it a overall score of 4 is that I ordered black but they appear dark blue in light. They are really comfortable and the style is absolutely gorgeous! I wear them to church with my skirts and I get a lot of compliments. They give me an extra uumph in my step! Did I say I love them?!

I bought these in the blue suede - they are awesome! Unique without being over the top and they look great with dark skinnies. They stay up pretty well but I could see the slouch concern. One thing that bothered me, but I kept them anyway - they are so wide! If you have large calves, then these may be perfect as is, but there was almost two inches of spare room at the top for me. I decided to take a chance and adjust these myself. I bought some suede glue, cut down the seam on the inside of each boot with a fabric cutter (leaving about an inch and a half not cut at the bottom) and reglued these to take in the shaft. I took it in about 1.5 inches. Presto, perfect. They look great, and will now get a lot more wear. Since there is already a seam there you can't tell that I have done anything.

These are great in blue! The construction is average--made in China--and I'd suggest you go a half size smaller. I'm 7.5, and the 7 fits perfectly. Don't expect great support in the boot and it does slouch a bit...but it's an attractive boot overall.

Beautiful boots with nice stacked leather heel. True to size and comfortable. Heavier weight leather. They have enough body where you can pull them up all the way or scrunch them down a bit if you like. Happy with my purchase. Zappos is awesome!

I ordered these for my wife for Christmas and she loves them! The only problem is that the right boot slouches a bit and the left does not. May exchange for another pair. The Cognac color is beautiful!

I'm with the other reviewers who said these boots are too tall for a short person. (I'm 5-foot-2, and they hit me on the knee.) Also, I think Zappos may have the wrong calf circumference here; it's really wide. (I saw the figure as 18 inches on another shopping site; I measured 16 inches at the top.) Finally, I hated the black marble color (I bought the boots thinking I would re-dye if I liked them); it looks fake rather than distressed. On the other hand, the toe box is a nice cross between cowboy-boot-pointy and round, and I do love the unadorned style. If the fit had been better, I might have kept these boots.
