I received these boots a few days ago and I like them a lot. I was a little taken aback by the blue gray fur trim as I expected an earth tone boot all around, but it's really no big deal. It's still and attractive well built boot. I haven't yet worn it in snow as I haven't had snow since purchasing the boot, so I hope to update with more information. This is the only reason I can't give a 5 yet. I still wanted to review now because there are a couple of reviews I had read which caused me to hesitate when ordering and I can already tell that I did well in ignoring them: One reviewer had complained about the boot being too narrow at the calf. I feel there must be some mistake as this boot does not wrap around the calf, but rather stops right below, barely touching it. In any case there is plenty of room at the opening at least for me. I am not a person with super skinny legs and I am a runner so my calves are built, and no problem. While there could conceivably be a user whose calves are reached by this boot and for whom the top opening isn't big enough, I doubt that would be a concern for most women because the boot just isn't that tall.
Also,many reviewers advised purchasing a half size larger, which I did. I probably didn't need to. Having said that, I like the idea of a little extra room for doubling up on thick socks, so I will keep this pair. If you're not planning to do that and your feet are on the narrow side perhaps you can just order your regular size. All in all I'm really looking forward to snow so I can wear my new boots!
