Sturdy and great-looking but...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rocket Dog Brands International Ltd Tavern Womens Boots (Shoes)
...unless you have calves like an Olympic cyclist's thighs, these boots look like you are wearing Wellingtons. I don't have skinny calves (I'm a 5ft 6" ex-sprinter), but the calves of these boots came up very large. When I tried them on with skinnies, my legs gave the impression I was a 6 year old trying on her daddy's sawn-off wellies. The look is even worse with a skirt (though great for Glastonbury, I guess). This is a shame, because aside from the cavernous calf fitting, the boot is beautifully designed: a lovely thick, sturdy sole, great-looking upper and a comfortable foot fitting. I hope that Rocket Dog takes comments into account and designs something similar but with a more snug (or adjustable) calf fitting. I'm still a big fan of the brand.
