Best boot ever. I have wider than average calves and enjoy being able to walk in my shoes. I also like a little height. These are absolutely perfect. They are comfortable, look great, have held up, and even zip over jeans. My only complaint is that when I tried to order a second pair in black leather, that option was gone! Scoop these up quickly.

I love these boots. I am wearing them right now and I just received them last night. I was worried that my feet would be in pain because they always are when trying to break them in. I was also afraid that they would be too tight around the calves, but they are perfect. Also, very comfy to walk around, despite the high heel.

Great boots, nice leather, very comfortable. I wear sizes 7 - 7 1/2, the 7 1/2 are a perfect fit. I didn't understand what other reviewers said about the lining showing but it's because the seam at the front is not sewn together, so the "leg" goes inside the "boot." You really can't tell that and I have no problem with the lining showing. Great value for money, I recommend these boots.

I bought the black pair, and the liner doesn't show underneath the ankle wrap thing as far as I can tell. The top of the boot seems really wide...big gap between my leg and the boot, but I'm keeping them. They're very comfortable for their height. I sometimes can't wear super-high shoes because my ankles/feet aren't flexible enough (or something like that) but the platform on these boots makes them really comfortable without looking too clunky. Keepers.

Love these boots! In fact, I loved them so much that I ordered them in black as well. They look awesome with skinny jeans and skirts. The platform makes them easy to walk on and stable. I have narrow feet and the medium width fit perfectly. The only minus is that there is no footbed. I'd recommend one of those soft insoles.

These boots are gorgeous! I know what some reviewers mean by the ankle part looking weird. It basically looks like an ankle boot with a leg part attached, if that makes sense, so you can see the lining of the inside of the ankle boot. As weird as that sounds, I love the look. The boots are really comfy and true to size. Also, unlike a lot of other Nine West boots, these fit around my calf. They are not too high and are really comfy to walk in.

Great looking navy boot. Talk about hard to find. It is a true dark navy boot that works with skinny jeans, trousers, or skirts. They are very classic and I have been looking for a couple of years. They are quite comfortable considering the higher heel. They are right under the knee but I am 5'10" so it's fine. As for the odd overlap-I can see a little of the brown liner. If the liner had been navy also, it would have been better. I think it is there to prevent the ankle from looking slouchy so it's a trade off and I don't mind it one bit.

I love the look and feel of these boots but they were a tad too tall and hit my knees. I am 5'1" and that is probably why. The book itself is incredibly comfortable - the heel is perfectly located. I did order half a size up and the fit was perfect. I am sorry that I have to return them.

When I opened the box I knew this was the blue boot, this would be my winter blue baby. Comfortable, the heel is the just right. They look and feel great the leather is soft.

These boots are beautiful! However, along with another reviewer, I did not like how I could see the inside lining across the top of the ankle. Also, they seemed to be a bit tight across the top of my feet and it didn't feel like they would stretch in that area. Too bad. I had high hopes for these boots!

A fantastic, comfortable boot. They can be worn all day with no problem. Unfortunately, the right foot boot has had some manufacturing flaws that caused the stitching at the shaft top to come undone, and the sole at the toe has become uncemented. More sad news--this boot was unavailable for exchange for a 7.5 black, so they had to be returned instead.

I love the look of these boots and the bootie effect means bending your ankle is easier in these than with some others. I wear an 8¼ and generally go up half a size in boots for comfort, but the narrowness of this boot meant I had to go up to a 9¼. They are a smidge too big now, but with some nice boot socks, close to perfect. There have been comments about the wide shaft, so I will add my two cents. I have big calfs and these fit really snug on them (i.e. zipping like normal, wait... pause... OK, now zip slowly while applying pressure). That being said, I can wear them on top of skinny jeans. I should also note, that while these fit snug on my calfs, the wide shaft boots that I have tried were way big, so if your calfs are big but not wide shaft big, they will probably find a nice home in these.

These are beautiful but run a bit small. Will have to return them and ask for a bigger size (which unfortunately is our of stock).

I expected to love these, but when I took them out of the box, I just felt "meh" about them. The leather looked fake and has a strange smell. I had to double check to make sure it was actually genuine leather. I also felt that the toe box was pretty tight for my size 10 feet, while the heels felt loose and slipped while I walked. I feel like the weird gap between the ankle and the shaft is really noticeable when I walk; it's almost as if I was wearing booties and then had leather leg warmers on underneath. So that being said, they did zip up all the way on my 15.5"-16" calves (my legs are different sizes) and they came up to just below the knee (I'm 5'7") so I was really happy about that. I'm still deciding. I like these boots, but I don't love them.

The boots were very cute but the calf was much too wide for me. There was a big gap even when I put them over jeans so I had to return them.

I liked the look of these boots a lot and the heel/last was very comfortable, but I returned them for one reason - the whole shaft is lined with vinyl/pleather. They made my legs sweat. I tend not to wear tights, so this was an issue for me.

Beautiful boot. Absolutely loved the look of it. Unfortunately I could barely get my foot in. I ordered a size 9 which is my size in every shoe or boot.

I have worn these shoes for two weeks now (got them Halloween). Initially, they were very uncomfortable and required gel insoles because the heel is high by my standards (I wear size 9--heel height comfort varies with shoe size; generally those with larger shoe sizes find high heels more comfortable). They do run a little narrow. The left boot toe tends to dent in because my foot doesn't reach the end of the boot. After a week of walking the plastic sole of the right heel fell off. Now one heel is half an inch shorter than the other and is badly scuffed. I only wear them 3 days/ week and never for long distances because they hurt... Boots look great, but terrible quality for the price. I wish I could return them, but it's too late now.

I usually wear an 8M and that size fit perfectly. These boots felt very comfortable but I did not like the odd overlap of suede by the ankle. I could see the lining of the suede along the edge and I just didn't care for it so I am returning the boots. Too bad because they fit really well.

Due to how others rated this boot, I ordered a half size bigger, 9 1/2. I usually wear a 9. I would have been okay with the 9. I wasn't completely crazy with the "crumb catcher" flap at the ankle of the boot but I could have dealt with it. They were a little higher than I would have preferred but comfortable due to the platform. My biggest issue was the circumference of the boot which advertised as 15" (and that is what the boots I currently wear are.) However, in the size 9 1/2, I measured the circumference at 16 1/2" which left a HUGE gap around my leg and showed the beige lining too much which I didn't care for at all. My calves themselves measure 14" so with a 2 1/2" gap around my calf, I had to return them since I will primarily wear them with skirts. Perhaps with skinny jeans they might have worked. I also did not find these boots tight around my ankle at all which others commented on. My feet are on the outer limits of Medium width and I didn't have any problem with the fit on my foot and ankle itself.

Don't do it. There is an horrendous bump in the foot bed. Extremely uncomfortable and the material is very thin.
