These boots are decent riding boots and great for the price. The only issue I had is that the calves are very wide. I can actually fit a fist in there with my leg. It's a little absurd. I feel like because of the vast cave space between leg and boot, it causes the zippers to jangle, making it sound as if there is a dog with a collar jangling around in my office whenever I move. But if you have wider calves, i think these are terrific for the price. Also, i ordered up a size so that I could fit my "magic shoes" (orthodics) in there and that worked beautifully. So if you are in need of a boot for your broken feet like me, these work.
These boots are cute! Unfortunately, So Cal is having an extremely mild winter so I'm wearing flip-flops most of the time. They're a bit flat for my feet but slipping my orthotics in make them comfy! I'm 5'4 and the boots come up right below the knee. For me, they are true-to-size...8.5 fits perfectly.
