I had a bad experience with Bearpaw brand a while back and was hesitant about these, but have been looking for a grey pair for a while. I wanted something I could tuck my bootcut and slightly flares jeans into and these do the trick! They're a little snugger on your foot (which I imagine will stretch with time), but if you have thicker calves they are wonderful! Like the other reviewers stated, they DO have a button on each side, but I'm ok with that. They're REALLY cute, warm, and I like them more than the UGG bailey's! For having wide feet and bigger calves I'm very happy with this purchase. I may spring for the black one's too, since my black steve maddens aren't as giving.
