Laces allow u to tighten boots. I have slim ankles and muscular calves, so I was pleased to be able to cinch then the way I like them. Can still fit foot in even with laces cinched. Don't mond no zipper at top no problem with entry for me. I have these in a size 6 and felt they were true to size. Because I am short 5'1" and proportionate they are a little tall but once broken in, I don't think that will be a problem. Wish they had real shearling.

Sadly these handsome looking boots have a zip which stops before the cuff at the top of the calf (the lacing is decorative). This means only leggings can fit inside the boot. OK if it isn't too cold or if you are wearing a skirt, but hopeless if you are wearing these for deep snow. I do not have particularly large calfs. Also because you can't angle your foot while putting on the boot, it takes a few goes before your heel settles into the heel of the boot. Had to return them.

Bought these after looking for some warm and durable, yet attractive, winter boots. Have only had them a few weeks, but am so happy! They are warm, comfy, have good tread and look pretty cute too! Like some others noted, there is almost no support so I just bought a cheap $2 set of foam insoles to cushion. I may get some nicer Dr. Sholls or something later, but no complaints here. And they were on sale!

The calf part fits super small compared to the shoe part. I don't have wide calves and have NEVER had to buy a wide calf boot, but this one barely zips up the side. Super uncomfortable on the leg part and the shoe part is way too big. For sure returning these.

These boots are cute and useless. The tongue is sewn to the sides of the boots, the zipper on the inside does not even zip up all the way, its just for looks. I returned them. If you have a large calves these boots are not for you.

I live in Chicago and our 2014 winter has been a very frigid one. These boots came in handy. They kept my feet very warm and dry. The leather is very stiff at first but once they're broken in, they are very comfortable. It would have been nice if the zipper opened all the way, not good if you have large calves. I peeped the other reviews and went by what most said, they do run like half a size larger than your normal size. I usually wear a 7.5 and I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly.
