These boots are perfect. I never thought I had large calves but finding boots that fit was becoming impossible. Once I saw that Zappos had wide calf boots I thought I'd give it a try and I'm glad I did. These beautiful brown boots fit just right and zip up with ease. I can even tuck in skinny pants. The leather is beautiful and the buckle detail looks great with skirts. I'll be wearing these all winter. I ordered my regular size because I like my boots to be a little roomy in the foot for socks. These work.

Love these boots. I have very muscular calves and have a difficult time finding boots to fit (been searching for 4 years!). They even have room to spare. I have slimmer ankles so there is a little bunching there but I can deal with that. Very comfortable, didn't even need to break them in and can wear them all day!

I have 3 issues in finding a boot to fit. I am only 5'3", have a narrow foot, and a wide athletic calf (17"). If I get a boot in wide to fit my calf, then the foot is too wide for my narrow foot. I also have to watch the height of the boot so it isn't too tall for me. This boot hit all the right spots. The foot isn't too wide, the calf is wide enough. And it's not too tall that it goes past my knee. Finally a boot that works for all my issues! The only negative for me is the boot is too tight to put a pair of jeans in, for someone with a little smaller calf it would work. Hoping the leather with loosen up with time as most leather does.

Boot was great looking, however the leather was very stiff and was huge at the ankle. Did not fit right, so I am returning these and keeping another pair I bought.

I am very partial to Bandolino boots because of the quality of their leather and the great stitching they use. This is in fact my third pair. I am hard on my footwear. These boots are beautiful and I look good in them too! I wore them last winter - no I rocked them last winter. They are low like riding boots and accommodate my large calves, so I was able to teach in them all day! I am not a "sit down" type teacher. The color is rich and striking. All that beautiful leather! One tip - wear a moderately thick athletic sock with them to make sure you have a comfortable bed for your feet all day. I found that my tights did not give me enough cushioning.

Love these! I find it hard to find boots to fit my calves. I find a lot of boots that I've tried made for someone with really narrow legs. And my calves are not even that large! I tried these since they are wide calf and it was love at first try on! I love the color and even though they are wider then my calf and leave room I still love them. I can wear regular jeans underneath them and still zip them up. That makes it so easy for me and they still looked fine with the extra room. My favorite boots ever!

Love these boots! I've looked long and hard for a wide calf boot that is sleek and simple without being boring. The color is rich and the construction is good quality. The tops really do fit a 16 inch calf, even over jeans. I do wish the leather were a touch thicker, but overall I'm very pleased.

These boots are great! Very comfortable with no break-in time required. Nice supple leather, nice details and appear to be made with quality materials and workmanship. I have 16" calves and am 5'4". I have had a hard time finding boots that fit. These are perfect. Can wear with tights and a skirt/dress, or with jeggings underneath. Appear to be true to size. I ordered my regular 8.5. All in all, for the $, I just don't think that you can go wrong with these.

I LOVE these boots! Like many others, I have had a hard time finding boots I am able to zip with my muscular calves which are 17". I ordered the cognac color which is very rich...I get compliments every time I wear them, even people I don't know who stop me in a store or parking lot and want to know where I bought them. They were hard to zip at first, even with tights, but found the supple leather will stretch a bit, and now they will zip even with my skinny jeans tucked in. I had read the reviews about little arch support, so I ordered 1/2 size larger, and inserted gel insoles. That made them wonderfully comfortable to wear all day. Now they are on sale...a good time to get another pair for next year!

I have been having trouble finding boots that I could wear over jeans. I don't consider my calves to be large by any means but noticed a lot of boots I tried were cut for very skinny legs. A few I had trouble even zipping up on my bare legs! I decided to try a boot specifically labeled as wide calf and these are great. Very cute and my jeans easily fit under them and they are not even skinny jeans. I find them to be fairly comfortable due to the low heel, but I would probably not wear them for walking long distances. Overall I'm extremely happy with my purchase!

It is very hard to find a wide with calf that fit, this fits the bill. I took it to the shoe guy and they stretched it a little more in the foot for me so I could fit a footbed, it is well worth it if you have a wide foot. After many, many different brands this was the one that worked for me, finally I have beautiful winter boots!

I have had these boots for about a month now, and I am very satisfied with them. I spent some time looking for wide calf boots in several stores, with no success. I wanted a basic black boot that could be worn with either skirts or pants, and this one fits the bill! It is extremely comfortable and also well-made. I have had good success with this brand before in terms of fit and style, so I was willing to order them without trying the boots on. I usually wear a size 10 in shoes, and since I wanted a bit of extra room for heavier socks, I ordered a size 10 1/2, which was just perfect. I know I will enjoy wearing these boots for a long time! I would highly recommend this style to anyone looking for a handsome pair of boots for women with wide-calves. Great pair of leather boots!

I am in love...with Zappos and these boots. I put the 365 day returns to the test after buying a pair of Born "wide calf" boots last year that didn't zip up. I was dedicated to getting back in shape, and though I don't consider my calves huge by any means (I mean, I am 5'9") even after a year and a slight slim down I had no luck. I sent them back for these bad boys and WOW! The leather is lovely and of excellent quality and the boots are very comfortable. They were sold out in a 9, so I said what the heck and went with a 9.5 (and I'm ALWAYS a 9). This turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I'd say these are true to size, but they seem as though had I not purchased the extra half size up that they would have been a bit narrow in the toe. However that extra space really worked out well and these boots fit wonderfully with thin or thick socks and are quite comfortable. The ankle is a bit loose but I wouldn't call it sloppy. They aren't supposed to be skin tight at the ankles ladies, that's not where you want movement restriction. If you want tight, don't get real leather, get the boots with the stretchy stuff all the way up the back. These are absolutely perfect, beautiful, comfortable, and fit over my (exactly) 17" calf WITH REGULAR JEANS ON! A+ Rock on with your bad selves Zappos! Thanks for keeping a nice selection of boots for girls like me!

I have tried many types of boots to find one to fit my wide calf. I ordered the Bandolino Cabeza and it fit perfect! I love the look, the fit, and the comfort! Great product. Hopefully I will get a brown pair next year.

These boots are great! The leather is soft and the fit is just perfect for me. The wide calf leaves just enough room so the boot isn't tight at the top.

The fit of the boot is great. I wear a 6 shoe but a 6 1/2 boot to allow for socks and my wide calf. These boots zip easily and are a quality boot. I'm definately a satisfied customer.

Brands I'd also recommend: Fitzwell also fits me nicely.

Love these boots! Trust me, I've been doing a lot of shopping for the pair of boots (I've ordered from 5 different sites! and returned all but these). They really are fantastic, first my calf measures exactly 16" and I can slip my 4 fingers in easily! I had a pair of loose fitting Danskins pants on and wrapped them around my leg and the boot zipped up! (Would never wear it like that in public, it was just to try on...looked horrid.) They will look fantastic with leggings or skinny jeans! I ordered size 9M. The fit (width) is roomy for inserts as I felt I had direct contact with the floor, but I have yet to find boots that have much of arch support or padding in the foot bed. There is ample room for inserts and a pair of "fluffy" socks. When I just had stockings on my feet felt like they were "sloshing" around...so wear socks. They are 100% leather and look it! My husband was even impressed. The ankle is a wee bit on the loose side, but it doesn't "sag" like the other boots I had tried on. I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend these!

Finally a boot that fits my wide calves! These just fit the calf area (17"), had to try on twice to really get a good feeling of the fit on the calf. Ordered a 1/2 size up, and the boot part fits perfectly. If you have an extremely wide foot, these may not fit the bill, but they fit my wide foot pretty well, with some room, not a for a thick sock, but a thinner one. I've tried on many pairs and they've all been too narrow in the calf. I'm the in-between size of 17" calf, so the wide/wide is too large on most boots, but the regular wide calf seems too tight. These fit well, and are beautiful. Am buying them in black and probably the dark brown, too. The light brown color is also lovely, a true lighter color. Am thrilled with my order!

Brands I'd also recommend: Haven't found another brand that fits yet

Love these boots, super comfy! I wish the top of the shaft would taper more as it comes up towards the knee, as is it tends to stick out a little. Other than that, these are great and I will be keeping them.

I order this for my 33 year old niece, and she has huge calfs. I thought 16 and a 1/2 was large, until I measured my calf, which is to my surprise 16 inches. The boots came, I tried them on, and they fit perfect! except the calf was a little wide, but with a pair of boot cut jeans, they look and feet really nice. I wear a 11 shoe, but these boots feel perfect! The boots are a 101/2.

Love this boot. My calve measures about 16-16.5 and I have plenty of room. I also like the height, comes appropriately just below the knee (I'm 5'9"). Finish on the boot is beautiful. Thanks Zappos for another great product!
