I have a 15" calf circunference where the top of the boot hits! You can see how big they are going down to the ankle.

This is how much extra material I can grab at the upper ankle/mid shin area!
"First off, these boots are just as cute in real life as they are in the picture. I do not know what they were using to measure the calf circumference though. they are almost 17" at the top of the boot!! They also do not taper down much toward the ankle so they are horribly baggy and sloppy looking, and they look even worse when you tighten the "corset". I can grab almost a full 2 inches of material. I'm going to take them to a cobbler to see how much it will cost to have them taken in but if this is something you aren't willing to do and you do not have gignormous calves, I'd stay away from these. :("
