The reason i like these particular boots so much is because some of us larger girls can rarely buy boots simply because they don't fit larger calves, unlike these boots because of the "split top". "Plus size" boots only give more room in the ankles. Oddly enough, even with larger calves, girls sometimes have really small ankles. So, these boots, with the "split top" are the ONLY fashion boots that work. Every size girl will love them because they fit like a glove!
