These boots are totally awesome!!!!! Looks even better in persons. The leather is beautiful. I am a US dress size 8 and these boots fit my calves perfectly! I would say I have medium size calves.They are high, but if you are use to heels they are pretty comfortable. I am 5'-4.5" & these boots fit me about 4.5" above my knee. These are pricey, but in my opinion worth it!
