Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have *huge* calves (~18-19") and these are the only boots I've found so far that fit them, thanks to the elastic panel. For that reason alone, I'm keeping them.
However, they're not quite what I wanted. The toe box is a bit mannish, especially under pants, so I'm pretty much limited to wearing them with skirts. On me, they ran a bit long and narrow, and I needed more arch support, so I had to add an insole (Dr. Scholl's Tri-Comfort Orthotics Inserts). They also tend to bunch at the ankle, and i'm not really fond of that look--and I can see that it might get uncomfortable over time, too. They are also more casual of a look than I wanted.
But they are otherwise pretty comfortable. They are VERY tight on my huge calves, but still comfortable, and don't give me muffin top legs--that elastic really does work miracles, and it looks a lot better than I thought it would, not tacky at all. I couldn't tuck jeans or even leggings into them, but I'm not fond of that...
The boot upper is really soft and lightweight, so when you wear them a while they tend to slide down and bunch at the ankle. Then the zipper hits the ankle and hurts. The heel is odd looking hard rubber.
I love Naturalizer. I own several pairs of shoes made by this brand and they're all excellent and comfortable as well - even those with more than 2" heel. This pair of boots is no exception. Now, I don't wear them that often so they still look brand new. I've worn them maybe 7-8 times so far. They go with everything. On the sizing - I have a wide calf and the boots have elastic "panels" on each side making the fit even better - not saggy and not so tight that blood circulation is cut off. As far as the shoe part, they seem to be true to size. I've found that Naturalizer can run a bit big but I don't find it true for this pair. I did buy these at Amazon even thought it doesn't have the verification mark by the review.
