Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.
About Wide Calves:
Wide calves can cause a problem when a person seeks the proper footwear. Especially in the purchase of boots, the person needs to be aware of styles that offer wide calf adjustments.

Although the boot is a great eye catcher, I was so disappointed when I received it because it was not true to size. I am a size 7 and when I tried it on it was huge! I would say a size and a half or more larger! Now I have to send it back. Too bad, would have loved this boot!
Vince Camuto Bollo 2- Wide Calf Beautiful but tight

I love this boot and was so excited to get it. When I first tried it on it was a little tight, and still barely fits with skinny jeans. I should have known better and gone up half a size but I didn't and was then too lazy to exchange them (let's be honest, I could barely wait for them to arrive).Anyway, I highly recommend but if you have trouble with calf size to begin with, a half size up is smart!

David Tate Valentine 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
