I liked the quality of these boots...and as mentioned by others, the dark brown does have dark fur lining, not light! They fit properly in terms of shoe size and did fit my calves...which have always been muscular and more on the large side, so I have a hard time getting tall boots to fit. The only thing is that, if you are a thicker legged gal, the split can be look that actually visually widens your leg, so I'm not sure that it is the most flattering. To be honest, when folded down the boot looks a tad ridiculous to me, so I won't be wearing them that way. I am a seamstress and ended up sewing a small panel of brown leather into the gaps on each side because I didn't like the look of a more triangular "mouth" at the top of the boot. However, I had never bought a boot with that type of style before and didn't realize what I was getting...(Not the boot's fault...mine, haha!) In terms of quality, delivery and materials I think it was a great buy.
