At last, a shoe that fits my problematic feet. It is comfortable as is but I plan to add my Naot insoles for a even firmer support. One of the best things is that the lining is leather, not hot microfiber or some sort of plastic product. Leather lined shoes are increasingly hard to find and expensive but are the best.

These are not wide. If this is the widest they make this shoe it should not be marked as wide.

Returned these boots. Leather did not look good for the price and the calf was HUGE. Even if I were going to tuck jeans into them, the calf would still be loose and clanging around my calf as I walked. I have normal sized calves, not super skinny.

These boots really excite me! I have very wide feet (11ww) with thick ankles and these fit perfect. I have the brown and they are a perfect brown. Very stylish. Good job, David Tate.

Very comfortable for all day wear with moderate amount of walking/commuting. Just enough heel height without feeling like I’m towering. Easy on and off with no pulling or excessive pushing of foot into the boot. Toe is pointed without looking silly and the pebbled leather is very fine, looks nearly smooth. Only wish would be for a tad bit more cushion around the ball of the foot but otherwise I really love these boots!

I have such a tough time finding shoes. Wide feet bunions, narrow heel. I was skeptical but ordered these anyway based on the reviews. They are so cute and they actually FIT and are comfortable. I’m in love!!!!!!

Had to send these back. A really cute boot but terribly uncomfortable. Too much action on the ankle bones and rub. Bought a Rockport narrow boot to replace these, sorry.....

This is a beautiful shoe, but unfortunately was so uncomfortable I had to send it back. The material is very stiff and dug into my feet. No way I could wear these all day to a wedding.

Holy cow I'm so happy to have found these boots! I bought my last pair of large calf boots a few years ago here at Zappos but couldn't find that brand when I needed to replace. I have 19" calves and these boots fit like a charm with leggings or tights (but I don't think I could wear these over a pair of jeans). The only gripe I have is that I do have a normal width foot, and my feet feel a little bit snug, but not shoved or too tight in there (a wide width might have helped, but I was too excited to wear these and said phooey on exchanging). They're comfortable and I don't feel fatigued when I have these on and I'm standing for a period of time. And believe the hype when everyone says the leather gets softer... after a couple times with these on, when I went to take them off, my hand touched the leather and I just let out an aaaaaahhhhh. Beautiful boots. Hopefully with a little more wear then maybe I can do the over-the-pant-leg attempt :)

I have a hard foot to fit, wide with a high instep. These felt good at first, then the stitching on the side started to dig into my foot. Arch support was ok, but I really had to put in my orthotics and that's when the stitching started to bother me. Nice shoe and have had some luck with David Tate shoes in the past. But just not this one.

First pair of boots with a heel I’ve bought in a long time and I love them. Wore them for 4 hours standing and walking and I highly recommend them. Great comfort through the toe and whole foot!

I'm normally an 8, but I had to order 7.5 in these for the wide. I ordered about 7 different pairs of David Tate boots and loved them all, just took a while to get the right size. The wide's seem to run big in the foot, so I'd definitely size down if you go wide. I have what I like to call athletic calves, haha, so do need wide boots most of the time. However, I'm short too, 5'1". So many wide boots end up looking stupid, they flop around my calves or go too high, not over my knee, but at my knee and they're uncomfortable in the back when I sit down and get messed up from hitting my leg where it bends. These boots are awesome! The shaft isn't too tall, the leather is buttery soft and the detail with the buckle and strap is awesome. I think they're worth every penny.

I got this shoe for my wedding outfit. Didn't wear them for months to make sure they looked great for the big day. The night before my wedding I was practicing dancing in the shoes and one of the heels snapped off. Very upset at the quality of these shoes, especially for how pricey they are.

I liked the way the shoe looked. I would have kept it but it was too narrow for me. Even the wide was too tight.

I’m a true 12W and these felt a tad too wide - but thick socks will fix it! Comfortable for the longer/busier days

Very cute with the decoration at the toe. The snakeskin print wasn’t noticeable as snakeskin but gives a nice sparkle to the shoe. When I first put it on it seemed too tight but it conformed to my foot quickly. Ball was wide enough and heel was narrow enough. Quite a bit of cushion on the footbed. Very pleased.

I bought these boots because I got a confirmation that the size 6 had the wider 18” calf. I have wide feet and got the 6W. The footbed fit fine, but the ankle of the boot was too big. It sagged and didn’t look flattering. Also the leather looked and felt like plastic. Definitely not the quality I’d expect from a $200 pair of boots. So glad Zappo’s has such a great return policy.

The leather is soft and the shoes are sized accurately. However, the sole is too thin and there is no padding. Since you are walking with a 2 inch heel, the ball of your foot takes a lot of abuse. That's where there should be more padding for comfort.

I wanted a dressier boot and really liked these but they had a tiny nail sticking through to my foot. I returned them and reordered. I included a note so Zappos about the nail so they wouldn't put them back in stock . I also called and told customer service.
