Tall Riding Boot
I ordered these boots last week and they arrived yesterday. I live in Canada so I'm very pleased with the timely delivery. I'm disappointed, however, with the boots. While they look great - I love the style and color - the fit is not as described. I normally wear a 11.5 wide and my calf is 18" around. I ordered the 12 wide, and while the boots fit my feet perfectly, the calf is way too big. The boots are described as having a 16" calf circumference. Perhaps this is for a size 8 or 9, but I measured my boots and the circumference is 21". I wasn't expecting there to be such a huge difference. Definitely a disappointment, as I love the look of the boots and wish they fit!

The boot was great, the fit was great, the color was great. Why, you asked, was I disappointed? My legs must be really short. The tall riding boots came up about an inch over the back of my knee. I had to settle for the mid calf boot (which are also great).

I'm 5'4 and my calves are considered extra wide, and are muscular so no wiggle room there. Normally I wear a size 8 regular shoe. These fit! A little tight zipping them, but just enough stretch to make it. Super cute with lots of detail, and FINALLY a boot for me that actually looks like a riding boot. The only issue was the space left in the shoe (8 W) since I'm not wide, and around the ankle - but a fluffly pair of socks took care of that. If your calves are extra wide like mine, wearing them over normal jeans will be difficult - but get a pair of leggings or slim cut pants and it will work. And the best part - since i'm short these come all the way up to just below the knee - no slipping down and pulling them back up all day - they stay put!
