If you are thick in the calves/legs, skip these. The same goes with the other colors of this particular boot. Otherwise, it's gorgeous! I intended this one as a gift for someone (Size 8) with thick calves, but it didn't fit her. Luckily, I found someone else in the family who could wear them! Size 8 is VERY common shoe size, so not surprising I was able find a home for the boots.
