We have a winner!!! I have never been so happy!! After returning the size 12 wide for a 12 medium, the fit was perfect!! The wide was too big in the calf area, but left room in the shoe area to wear thicker socks. The boot is true to size and I still have room for a thicker socks in the medium. Very comfortable to wear and the brown color is what I was looking for. In other words, I’m a happy camper!!

No support for me at all. Pretty boot though. I’m just into comfort over appearance. Thank goodness Zappos let’s me try them out before I buy.

I always wear a 9 or 9 1/2 WW, so I ordered this in a 9 WW. But when I tried it on, OMG, it was HUGE. Ordered a half size smaller which came the next day (thanks, Zappos) and it was a perfect fit. I haven't worn an 8 1/2 shoe in decades (since before children). Cute bootie, comfortable. Plenty of room in the width, which is not always true of shoes even marked wide or double wide. Heel high is just high enough to feel like a heel without feeling uncomfortably high.

The size felt a bit bigger than expected and the width was great for someone with a bunion. I would exchange for a smaller size but they are sold out!

I was disappointed that they were made in China for the money spent on them. Inner sole has little comfort. Otherwise, a great boot.

The boots are BEAUTIFUL!! I ordered it in a wide just for comfort, but it was too big in the calf area. I had to return them to get a size M. Can’t wait to see how they fit when I receive them tomorrow. I will up date you all! ??

I absolutely love the style of these and ordered them in the navy color. Unfortunately, the size 10 was too short for me, though other size 10s fit fine. Have to return them. Wish they came in a 10.5! Also, I'm a narrow, and they fit very well in the width.

I could not be more thrilled with these shoes! I'm a 10N, and these babies fit me like a glove. It's so hard for me to find shoes that fit, let alone stylish ones. I noted these felt "narrower than marked" because even a "narrow" usually fits a bit too wide on me, but these are perfect. The kid leather is so soft and comfortable. The high top in front rubs my lower leg ever so slightly, but certainly no enough to be an issue. Highly recommend!

The extra wide shaft is made poorly and the boot does look like something for a Santa Suit. I was extremely disappointed and returned them immediately.

These are beautiful boots and the color is gorgeous. The main reason I am sending them back is because they do not come up to my knee. I am 5'6" and the shaft only came to 2-3 inches below my knee. I ordered a wide size because that is more comfortable for me in the toe box but the shaft came very, very wide as well. I mean huge!

I had high hopes for this shoe since I have had luck with David Tate before. However, the heel was too wide, and the toe was a little short. I thought I could adjust the shoe with the strap, but I could not make up for the gaps at the heel. Too bad, I'm still looking.

I am returning these, but only because I didn't like the shape of the heel and preferred the look of the Doran bootie by Walking Cradles, which I had ordered at the same time. My foot is somewhere around 9.5 EEE and the size 10WW fit beautifully.

I sometimes fit a 9.5WW but it was a tad snug, so I'll be ordering a 10WW. Loved the detail at the back and the look of it on my foot and leg. It looked better to me than the Alexa bootie, which I had also ordered.

After trying what felt like 100 pairs of boots, I finally found a nice leather boot that fits my 19inch calf comfortably. If they came in other colors, I'd buy one of every color.

I originally ordered a 10W because of reviews that stated the shoes were narrower than expected. Boy, were they wrong. The 10W shoes were very wide. I exchanged for my regular 10Bs and they are perfect. I will dance all night in these beautiful, comfortable shoes. They are gorgeous!

The boot length fit my foot and the shaft fit my 18" circumference calves. Unfortunately however these boots were narrower in the toe box than average WW shoes. According to the research I've done online, an extra wide (or WW) for a size 8 should generally be almost 4". My feet are 3.5" wide and these were too narrow. It's not exactly accurate to measure the sole to get an idea how wide the shoe is, so I measured the width of the interior stuffing, as it was pretty packed in there. The stuffing was only 3" across. Thats about the width of an average size 8, so I'm not sure how these are "WW". I wish either Zappos or the manufacturer would list the width measurements somewhere online so I wouldn't have to go through the trouble of purchasing and returning.

Lovely shoes. First order returned, too snug. I wear ordinarily a size 6 width E; these were too snug. Reordered a 6.5 EE, which are a little to big in size and width. I just cannot keep going thru a return process AGAIN. I will keep and wear a heavier sock.

I'm usually a 9.5 or 10 and I bought these in a 9.5. They fit just right. If you're looking to wear thick socks, maybe go up a half size. These are plain looking, but ok. Mainly I am so relieved to finally find a black leather boot that works for a short person (I'm 5'2") with NORMAL size calves (considered "wide" apparently). These fit just right for me.

The fit of these boots wasn't good. While the actual foot bed was ok, where the boot ended, up by the ankle was awful...too stiff, and it left sore spots & marks on my legs. AND the square pattern design by the end of the foot, from the heel up? it is very much see through...like a mesh! I guess the picture was deceiving for me, i thought it was light from the flash of the camera, I didn't realize it wasn't solid. And the material used in making these felt awfully cheap, especially for the money paid for them. Save yourself hassle and don't bother with these!

This was a total disappointment. Back zippers could not be manipulated at all, so could not even get the shoes on. Waste of time and money.

At first I really liked these shoes. But as I wore them around the house they dug into the back of my heel to the extent that I had to take them off. Sadly, I had to return them.

Felt comfortable when I tried on at home, but after a day at work they had rubbed a blister on the top of my left middle toe. The style looked better in the photo - looked pretty cheap and old fashioned in reality. My goal was to wear them for walking from train station to office and keep my more stylish higher heeled shoes at the office. These were far too uncomfortable to wear for walking, and not stylish enough to keep at office. Wish I'd sent them back before I wore them outside.
