They overdid it

OK. I have really wide feet, so I ordered this boot in a WW. I have a gripe in general that just because we need wide widht boots, for some reason boot makers can only seem to deliver them with an accompanying wide shaft. So I was delighted to find these online, the other reviews seemed promising and they had my width!!When I pulled these boots out of the box, unpacked all the paper, and took a good look at them, they were totally huge all over, with that crazy outward angling that all wide width boots seem to have. They looked so comically oversized in the calf, they really looked "special" and "orthopedic." When I tried them on, the width was so incredibly perfect (so rare for me) that I was almost able to overlook that the shoe part was altogether too big in the heel (why?? my heels aren't wide), the shaft was incredibly big (I need wide in the toe, not plus size) and they looked like I was wearing buckets. I walked in them as if they were galoshes. Seriously. I wear a size 9 shoe and 10-12 in pants so I'm not particularly dainty, but I'm not huge either. I keep reading that my measurements are the average American woman's...and yet I can't seem to spend my good money on boots. These boots were totally ridiculous.
Wears this shoe: didnt. had to return it the same day.

Too narrow in calf.

I loved this boot. Unfortunately, boot designers do not take into consideration that most women wear at least a size 14 and therefore do NOT have skinny calves. The shoe part fit beautifully, but the calf size was a good two inches shy.

Ankle area too narrow

It was very difficult to zip around both ankles, like a suitcase that is overpacked. Worried the zipper would break or the stitching would rip out. Once zipped up the boot felt fine--not too tight on the leg or ankle. The foot area was just a smidge too narrow--would have become uncomfortable by the end of the day. Nice looking boot but decided to return it for didn't think it would last
Wears this shoe: with jeans, long skirt, casual and dress

not a wide calf boot by any means

This description says that it will fit a calf up to 19inches which is an absolute joke and I am tired of ordering boots that say one thing and are another! My calf is 16 1/2 around on my left and 17 on my right (don't know why) but I could barely barely zip up on my left and it was so tight it was uncomfortable and I could not zip it on the right at all. So disappointing they are not real leather which I knew, but they still seem nice and looked good and heel was good height. But I refuse to use a boot stretcher and make the fake leather look weird and stretchy - they were not cheap. They should fit the leg they advertise. I am by no means big! I just have big calves and I am so tired of this I want to start my own company!
