"I loved these boots when I tried them on in the store. They fit perfectly in the leg and calf. They stayed up straight, were more fitted in the ankle and calf so they didn't look bulky, and were comfortable - except for the heel.I plan on wearing tall boots in the winter and the snow, so because the heel narrows at the bottom a little, rather than being an even square heel, I was worried about not being able to comfortably walk with them in the snow. In fact, I was close to wobbling in them just walking down the store aisle. This is probably because I don't usually wear much of a heel (these are 2.75 inches), but I knew I would have trouble walking on the snow.I measured my calf over pants and it was 14.5 inches. These boots fit perfectly over skinny jeans for my calf size, which is small to narrow. Other tall boots were loose in the calf.These boots have a stylish spin to them with the metal hook detail, which is unique, considering that the detail on most boots are buckles."
