I just got these boots in the mail today, and loveee them, except...they are extremely too wide for my calves. I do have kind of small calves but they aren't that small, I have like a good 2 inches of space to spare. Other than that I loved the boots, they are really beautiful and well made, and super soft. Will have to return them tho, super disappointed! Don't buy these if you have slightly small calves they will probably be too wide for you.

I LOVED these boot but was sure that they had made a mistake and sent me the Wide shaft version. The top of the boot was HUGE around my calf and my legs are not especially skinny. The fit around the foot was true to size and very very comfortable. I was SURE they sent me the wrong boots but Dillards assured me that they were the right ones. I'm still not believing it... no boot is THAT WIDE on the top unless it is a "Wide Shaft". All this said, because of the wide shaft I had to return them unfortunately. If I find a Dillards that has them I'm trying them on again just to make sure. I really did love these boots otherwise.
You can't go wrong with these boots. Arturo Chiang doesn't disappoint. In the picture they look like they are straight with a loose fit but they actually have a bit of a curve and fit like a normal riding boot. Beautiful color.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
These boots are lovely. I am a huge Arturo Chiang fan. I have at least 8 pairs of his boots all the same size. But these are a huge disappointment. Once on I am unable to zip them up! The zipper buckles at the back of the foot and it won't zip. My husband even tried and couldn't get them. I had my daughter with a slightly bigger foot put them on (unable to zip) to try and push the heel back and then finally after about 20 minutes of 2 people trying to zip them they got on. They just aren't worth the hassle! If you do purchase order a size bigger and maybe that will help. I can't go through 20 minutes of struggle to get on a pair of boots. Also I though I was ordering grey and they came looking more brown. Also I called Dillards about not being able to zip these boots and they refused to return even though they are basically unwearable as I bought on a Clearance day and they said non returnable. My loss!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
