I bought these boots after reading other reviews. I'm so glad I did. They are the first pair of this style boot that will fit over my calf and still have room for my Wranglers which have to be folded over so it is my big calf and 4 layers of denim. I have trouble with my balance and several friends and family members voiced concern over the height and were surprised when I showed them the side and the boot is flat. First day out I wore them all day into the evening. No regrets. They fit like an old broke in pair of shoes. They truely were that comfortable. I received them within a week of ordering. One last thing, when I left home that morning it was sunny but by afternoon we were in a blizzard. I had to get in and out of the pickup several times in the snow and when I got home I contemplated taking them off and sprinting for the house but decided the damage was done already so I sprinted to the house with them on through 6"of wet snow. By morning they looked just like new. Although I don't recommend using them for rain gear, and I intend on getting a good suede protector and brush, those boots were no worse for the wear. I give them 5 stars and 2 thumbs up.
