I just got these boots so I've only tried them on and haven't worn them out yet. They fit well. I have skinny legs so I'm pleased that the boots don't seem like they'll have a ton of room left in the legs. I'm glad I got these with the zipper because I'm not sure I could have gotten them on without a zipper. I made that decision based on other reviews I read.
I LOVE these boots. First of all, the color is beautiful, and I love the detail of the buckles and the zipper in the back. It adds just enough, so they aren't too simple or over-embellished. I will say that the calves on these boots were REALLY tight! I had to pull them down, zip them, then pull them back up. I didn't think they were going to work, but miraculously I found a way to zip them up! The toe area is also a little on the narrow side for me, but it's nothing that breaking them in can't fix. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and would recommend these.
