Loved these to look at on the web...loved them when they arrived. Tried to get them on - not a chance! I bought them as many people reviewed them saying they were a generous fit in the calf area. I now assume that those people had pin-thin calfs in reality! They might THINK they have wide calfs, but honestly...they truly can't have. I am sure that if these had fitted me, they would have been lovely boots and I was gutted to have to send them back - but if you really do have wide calfs then these are NOT the boots for you. You really need some with stretchy fabric, an adjustable panel or an elastic gusset in them somewhere (ie: Clarks do some, I Love Shoes do some).
