I just received these boots and I know I am going to love them. They are very, very soft, tall as far as my knees and I am 5'8, but the most amazing thing of all is that they fit my wide calves easily, and those are not easy to fit into tall boots..!!! I have a terrible time finding tall boots that fit my calves, but these boots are just right. I may want to get them rubber soles to save them from rain or snow, but for now they are just perfect for cooler winter days. The blue zipper actually adds an extra something to the boot and make them very trendy and modern. I thought I may not like that, but in person they are rather pretty. I recommend them.
