Harness riding boot
I love these boots. I was a little bit hesitate because I have other boots that aren't so comfortable, but these are amazingly comfortable. I have gotten nothing but compliments from women of all sizes dying to know where i got them at and how cute they were. I typically wear a 8.5 or a 9 but was able to get these in a 8W so I would say they run smaller. I have other shoes and boots from lane bryant and they're all 9.

No arch support. I put in my own inserts (there was enough room for it) and then they were comfortable all day.

Wanted to love these
I purchased these in black from my local LB store and have worn them six times in the last two months.
The Good: I absolutely loved the fit of these boots from day one, on both my calves and feet. The boot is very supportive, no blisters or hot spots. They fit beautifully over skinny jeans with room to spare. (My calves are about 18") These boots are really attractive and I love the height. I'm 5'5 and these boots hit me just below the knee. I have received a few compliments on these boots and I love the way the straps at the ankles balance out the wideness of my calf
The Not So Good: I will be really surprised if these boots survive the season. I have not even worn these once a week since I purchased them and I am seeing plenty of wear on the heels, as well as marring near the toes in the plastic. I have been so careful with these, more so than I am with my leather boots and I still am seeing significant wear just wearing these to work, with no significant walking.
I am willing to forgive the lack of durability a bit as wide calf options are limited, but looking at this from a sustainability standpoint, I am very disappointed. It seems irresponsible to me to be going through a pair of boots a season.
I have also noticed that my right boot is now not laying as cleanly as my left boot, almost as if it has stretched out. I have to pull this boot up throughout the day, even over jeans.
I think that every complaint I have about these boots would have been answered by a higher build quality, as well as higher quality of materials. Even though that would have obviously increased the price, I think it would have been worth it. I appreciate the generosity of the calf circumference, the comfort of the boot, as well as the style, but I can't justify wearing out a pair of boots every three or four months.
