I was a bit hesitant after reading the reviews regarding the calf-room in this particular boot, but took the plunge anyway. My calves are average size, so they fit me, but I could see where they might not work for some. This is my fourth pair of Old Gringos, and there is a noticeable difference between the amount of room in these and my others (Jasmines, Mia, and Sora) They are otherwise just as comfortable and the rest of the boot is what you generally find with a pair of Old Gringos. Love them.

These boots are stunning. I got the orange color and it is VERY vibrant, so be prepared, these are not under-stated. They're fun to wear. Amazingly comfortable, but I did add a padded arch support and they feel like slippers...I didn't want to take them off when I came home! Do notice that the orange pair has a pointed toe and the blue ones have the snip toe. I would have preferred the snip toe because the pointed toe makes the foot look a little longer, but it's not a problem. I still love them. I am thinking of also getting the blue pair. Sierra's price is great, first quality boots, fast shipping. I'm thrilled with my purchase. I also got the Old Gringo Gayla Razz here at Sierra and was thrilled with those too. I always take a size 8 in shoes and a 7.5 in western boots and that is what I got. Enough room in the 7.5 for socks and the orthotic. No pinching at all.
