Lia leather riding boot
They DO fit my calves, but...
Was really excited about these boots at first because they did fit my wide/athletic calves, which is a rare thing for a great-looking boot to do! However, upon pulling up the zipper on the first try, the little zipper tag-thingy came off. I had to fix it with pliers. Wore the boots a couple of times without incident. After that, the zipper tag from the OTHER boot came off, which again I had to adjust with some pliers. Not a HUGE deal, but kind of annoying?
The other thing I don't love is that, as another review mentioned, the boots get kind of saggy/baggy around the ankles/lower calf. I wish this wasn't the case. I was hoping the boots would stay straight up on their own, since I ended up even tightening the buckles. But the baggy-ness still happens. It doesn't look awful, just not as...crisp-looking... and structured and to-the-knee as I was hoping. The comfort is there, though! I'd return them if I could, just because the style isn't what I'd ideally wanted (and I would ideally have given it 2.5 versus 3 full stars), but I've already worn them a few times. Oh well. It appears this boot is still popular and well-loved by a few ladies. :)

LOVE my new boots. Very comfortable and they fit my "plus-size" calves.

Got these yesterday, wore them out last night. They are super comfy, don't make a lot of noise when walking, and very stylish.
Wasn't sure how I'd like the distressed look, but it's better in person than in the pics!
Need them in other colors!
