Women's Emory Low Heel Tall Boots
Wider than LE usually runs, and wide in the calf. I normally wear a 6.5, and LE tends to run narrow for me. These fit just fine with a bit of wiggle room when worn with only tights. I was comfortable walking around in them for 5 hours, then the friction allowed by said room began to be felt. Some medium weight socks over the tights takes care of that. I am contemplating trying the size 6 in brown, but that the calves are a bit wide regardless. The size chart says 15", and I have 13" calves. I almost returned them for that, but the dressy style combined with practical comfort makes this the only option out there. I will just hope there will be narrow calf version next year.

Nice Boot for the Office but too short
These boots are very comfortable and I can wear them all day. I have to really search for boots wide enough for my calves as I am very athletic and tall (I run and lift weights). My calves are 15 inches (I measured) and I wear a 7.5 size but I went up to an 8 medium so I could have room for tights if necessary. It is tough for me to find boots as my feet are fairly small for my size meaning the calves of boots are too small. These boots fit perfectly with tights and don't pinch but I do not think they are big enough for wearing with jeans in them. If you want to wear them with jeans, I would recommend the wide calf. These boots would have been a 5 star except they only go to my mid calf so the look best with black tights if I am wearing a skirt or a long skirt. I am 5'9" so fair warning, these boots are great but short. I will keep looking for the perfect tall boot that fits my tall frame and allows for an athlete's calves.

AMAZINGLY comfortable boot.
Sleek, comfortable boot. The first time I ever wore the boot (breaking-in period), I was on my feet for 10+ hours. My feet were "content" as if I had worn slippers. I would highly recommend.

I wanted to love these, but I don't.
The leather is nice and buttery soft. The low heel height, while still being dressy, is wonderful. I ordered the wide width to ensure they fit over my large calves. But the ankles are just huge and on my size 10 feet these seriously look like rain boots or something. Maybe if they had a nice buckle or some other embellishment it would be a little better but I don't know. I'm sending them back.

Beautiful boots but shafts are too wide
These are beautiful boots. The heel is just enough and the leather feels good. They are plain enough to wear for either dress or casual. I have wide feet and my regular shoe size fits my feet fine in these boots. Wide feet doesn't mean large calves, however. I measured the circumference of the shaft at the top and got 16 inches. My calves are a little less than 14 inches.
I will be returning these boots. The gap is uncomfortable and looks odd. The sale price was wonderful so it's regrettable that they didn't fit because the style and color were just what I wanted.

I loved everything about this boot except that it was too wide in the calf.
The heal, color, quality and look were exactly what I was looking for. However when I put it on the calf was huge. I even tried to wear it with my most bulky jeans but they were still too big. I am sure they would be great for some body types, just not mine.

I have been looking for a tall black leather boot for a long time. I have slightly wider calves and always found tall boots hard to fit. This boot in wide sizing is perfect, wide enough for comfort but not too wide. The leather is very soft and the heel is perfect for me as I'm taller and didn't want a high heel. I got them on sale so it turned out to be a great value very happy with them.

These are great boots!
I have trouble wearing boots since my calf is a bit larger. These boots fit my calf!! They are comfortable and the heel is a perfect height, not too high and not flat. If you are thinking of buying these boots, go for it! They look great with skirts or pants.

These boots are really beautiful. I wanted a riding-type boot for work (low heel height, classic design) but found riding boots to be too casual. This is a perfect solution as they are free of any ornamentation, and have a small, delicate heel that works well in the office. They are very walkable, as well. I do find them to be a little shorter than what I am used to, and I am 5'7", but they don't look funny as such. I measured my calf at 14" and so expected to have more room than I do. They fit perfectly close to my bare leg but I would be wary about gaining any weight, which might make these more tight than I like. I also really like the fact that the shaft is lined with canvas, which makes it quite breathable. The quality is the best I've seen anywhere near this price point, especially on sale. Beautiful leather, beautiful shape, wonderful comfort. What a steal!

CLASSIC--WILL BE IN WARDROBE FOR A LONG TIME
No fussy buckles or things that could cause an expensive boot to go out of style in the future---- caused me to look at this boot in the first place. I have things I've bought from LE 20 years ago and I still love them. I believe this boot is going to be added to my loved items from LE. They are very comfortable and became perfect when I added some arch supports. (I have some high arches). I don't have big calves and I don't think these would be good for those who do. These hit right under my knee. I'm very picky and don't review many items, not even for LE, so take it from this very picky buyer, these are worth the money! And honestly I think this is the MOST I've ever paid for anything from LE and I had 30% for this.
