I get so many complements every time I wear these boots. People have stopped me in stores asking where I got them.

TWO THUMBS UP! I bought these as a gift for a beloved BFF and I'm delighted that she's delighted! She has large calves and normally takes 10 to 10.5 wide (foot size). Only a 10-M was available, but they fit perfectly! For this reason we can only assume that they run slightly long & wide. I had her measure her calves (16")before ordering, and thankfully the online measurements were correct. Not only do they fit, but she is able to tuck pants into the boots as well...which is something she has not been able to do for a very long time. She tells me the leather is beautiful, smells great and that she couldn't be happier! She lives in MD, so I wanted to help keep her tootsies warm. I carefully read the reviews before purchase, and am glad I did. I highly recommend doing so, as every brand (and sometimes shoe) is different. I got them on sale so great boots at a great price. I couldn't be happier!

Love these boots. They were a little snug in the calf the first day but have stretched just enough for comfortable fit without overstretching, although they still won't go over my jeans. The heel is perfect height. I work 12-13 hours and can stand all day in these.

I saw these boots in the store in my city but they didn't have my size. I love the look and the fit. I needed a Wide Calf and so happy boots now come in the wide for people with fat legs.

These boots are amazing! I have very wide calves, I think they might be even 17.5 inches. I can actually fit my non-skinny jeans in them. They were tight the first day but they loosened right away. I am a size 9, but I always buy boots a size bigger so I can fit thick, fuzzy socks in them. So these are perfect! And very stylish too.

I am short 5'3 and getting older (59) My legs just seem to keep getting wider. I love these boots. They look great and fit great. Truly wide calf and I order the wide foot also. Hard to find just going into a store to shop. (Thanks Zappos) I can fit these over my skinny jeans and they also look great with skirts. Love them.

Love these boots! I have a very difficult time ordering shoes, especially boots, because I have a wide foot and and wide calf. I initially tried to order these in 8w, which is my size, but...they were out. So, I ordered an 8.5 (regular width) hesitantly, figuring that they probably wouldn't fit...but they fit great, room to spare so I can put a cushioned insole in, wear thick or thin socks and go! Love these! Nice leather, too. I have received many compliments on them.

These are great boots. I wore them all day! They are very comfortable. They can fit jeans great. I have a 15½" calf. They are just what I have been looking for.

I love these boots right out of the box! I've worn them around the house to make sure I like them and I have to say that they fit well and are very comfortable. They accommodate my wide calves with enough room to tuck in my pants. I got brown and have ordered a black pair today. Yay! Comfortable boots for wide calf girls!

These are great boots. Very comfortable, and nice styling. I liked the Cabeza even better but they didn't fit - the Caloua has an extra half inch of width in the calf. Both styles are a little big in the ankle but the ankle strap on the Caloua allows you to tighten it a little. I am considering getting more in different colors.

Very comfortable boot. I have foot issues and have had no problems at all wearing these boots all day. These are plenty wide enough in the calf and I can even tuck jeans in with comfort. I am upset they went on sale after my purchase!

This couldn't be a more perfect boot! Color is slightly darker than I expected, but it still looks great with jeans, leggings, tights, and just about everything. Beautifully made. Have to restrain myself from wearing them every day! :)

These boots are beautiful and run true to size. I ordered them because of the wide calf I did manage to get my extremely wide calf in the boot and let it stretch a bit. They're comfortable too. Wish they were not made in China.

I love these boots and have received many complements on them. They are well-made and look very stylish. The calf is wide enough to just fit me, so if your calfs are extra-wide, these boots may not work.

These boots are stylish and extremely comfortable. The slightly rounded toe gives plenty of room without pinching. For me, the wide calf has plenty of room for wearing over skinny jeans. I love these boots!

These are very high quality leather boots for a great price. The leather is soft and flexible and looks like it will wear beautifully. I ordered the dk brown which is a rich brown with a slight sheen. I wear usually wear an 8.5 or 9 and my foot is on the narrower side (but not narrow) my calf measures 16 1/2. I ordered the 8.5 and the fit is perfect. Someone with a foot on the wider side might find this boot a little narrow, but it was perfect for me. The wide calf allows me to wear socks and tuck in my skinny jeans with a little room to spare. These are not so wide in the calf that they give you a puss-in-boots look! The shaft is contoured and fits nicely through the ankle. Sometimes wide-calf means cankle too - not these boots. Ordered these at 6pm on Thursday and they were on my doorstep by 2pm on Friday with next day shipping. Zappos rocks!

The previous reviews confirmed my impressions. The fit is true and the colors are richer than the images on-screen. They are much more comfortable than boots made for actual English equestrian activity, since those boots' shafts are angled for the purpose of riding. I may need to reorder one size up, due to foot surgery. These are very stylish for the price. Saddle soap and polish may help preserve the leather.

Super fast shipping! Next day delivery for free! Boots fit, thank goodness - never sure with my calves being so wide. Hopefully they will stretch at top a little so I can tuck in pants. I ordered the etteinger boots, and they were wide calf at top, but would not zip up so too small at shaft, not at calf opening. Overall, it's nice to have a tall boot.

Brands I'd also recommend: The lumiani wide calf for sure!!

An excellent value for a truly awesome pair of tall wide calf boots. I am 5'9" tall with 17" calves at their largest width. These fit perfectly. I've tried 4 other pairs of boots before these ones and these by far are the best. The quality of the leather is far superior to any I've tried so far, the heel height is perfect, the arch support is fabulous and my feet don't feel crushed or pinched at all. I do agree with some of the other reviews that these seem to be larger in the ankle than any other boots I've tried, but they are not so large that they look odd or feel uncomfortable. The buckle across the ankle also allows you to cinch the ankle just a little bit more. It isn't a deal breaker, that's for sure. These are also just a slight bit taller than any other I've tried and I really like that being taller. I will also feel comfortable wearing these out in Alaska weather with the tread being slightly grippy but it doesn't look like a hiking boot tread. One thing I would say is that I am a size 9 and I purchased up to a size 9.5 which fits perfectly, even with a boot sock, but not so much bigger that I would have to wear a thick sock. In my opinion, I would order up a half size. I bought the black boot with cognac top and they look amazing. Overall five stars. Keeper. I'm ordering the all black and all cognac as well as soon as they are back in stock.

I love these boots! They are very stylish and the color is rich and slightly deeper than the picture. The texture is very smooth and expensive-feeling. They are well-made boots and I highly recommend them. I am petite, (5'4", size 4 or 6), but I have large calves. I wore these today with dark blue jeans tucked in. No problem at all zipping them up. I paired it with a form-fitting black longish sweater and I got all kinds of looks and compliments today. A complete stranger came up and told me she loved my boots. Buy these boots. You won't regret it. They fit true to size with a medium thickness sock. They do not rub or slip on my heel. They are a nice height and are extremely comfortable. My only complaint is I can't wear them every day without looking like I have no fashion versatility. On weekends though I think I'll live in these.

I have muscular calves and am short so finding boots that fit and were comfortable has been nearly impossible. I ordered these and love them! They zipped right over my calves and I have worn them all day several times and they are so comfortable and they look great.
