not as advertised!: not a slim calf
"i was so disappointed when i finally got these boots in the mail. i have 13" calves so when i saw that these boots were said to have 13.5" shafts, i was really excited -- and i understand different shoe sizes have different calf circumferences. i'm a size 7.5 and the boots were HUGE. i'm not sure if they accidentally sent me wide boots (my order and box says regular... does not indicate wide) or if they're just completely off about the measurements. overall, very disappointing.also, the leather is more of a matte/pebble textured leather (i ordered the brown color). i prefer the smoother shinier look."

Not as advertised
"I was eager to get these when I saw both the 13.5 inch circumference and the reviewer who said she couldn't even zip them up because they were too narrow.Just got them and tried on the right boot. My calf was swimming in it. I measured the boot and it came out to nearly 16 inches. I had ordered the 7.5 M.I wish the size listed was the actual size of what you're getting. And if the circumference ranges that much with shoe size, they should give us a chart."

"I really wanted to love these shoes, but unfortunately they were too small and the wide calf ones were too big! Not sure I would've kept them even if they had fit. I bought them in the distressed Cognac and they were much darker than I thought they'd be, more of a true brown. I'm so upset because I have been wearing the Coconuts Blakely for the past two years and I can't find anything I love as much!"

A Bit Pricey (Even on Sale), For What You Get
"I was really excited to find these boots on sale, as I was wanting a pair of brown boots for fall. Upon receiving them, they look nice and feel OKAY on and to walk around in, but I was pretty disappointed. These are sturdy, decent boots, don't get me wrong, but the leather is really stiff (Enough to hold its shape when not being worn) and awkward. I use the term awkward because it's not truly BAD, but I really didn't think it was real leather when I pulled them out of the box; it feel cheap, to me. There is also a sort of poly-blend liner (I think?) in the calf/ankle portion of the boot that threw me a bit. Other tall leather boots that I've acquired for around the same price (like Bed Stu) have been a softer, more durable leather without any liner.As for the sole, I'm not terribly keen on man-made soles (because if they get too worn, most of the time you can only patch them, versus replacing a leather sole), but this seem to have a more solid portion between the rubber and the boot, meaning it can most likely be replaced should any serious wear ever occur, so that was a plus.The calf seemed a bit tight, I do not consider myself to have wide-calfs, but there is a bit of muscle there, and so there is a bit of a squeeze when wearing them with thicker socks/pants, so I do not recommend them if you do have larger calvesIn short, it's an okay boot that I would NEVER pay full price for, even the sale price seems high in my opinion, but a good looking stock item to have for fall."
