"I ordered my regular size 7//37, and find this runs TTS. I have narrow-medium calves but the shaft is snug. I have average width feet and the footbed runs on the narrower side. I would not recommend this to those with wide calves or wide feet. The height is the standard 14", the same as all my other fashion boots. The zipper runs up the back and the top of the boot is cut at an angle so that the front is higher than the back (so that when you sit and bend your knees the top of the boot doesn't dig into the back of your knee). The pair I received seemed incredibly worn and the leather around the ankle was already very broken in. The leather was saggy and looks like it is "puddling" around my ankle. I understand this sagging is normal with true leather boots (this happens to my boots used for riding horses) but I hope that these won't sag too much more in the ankle area down the road. I love the two-tone look of these boots but I think sturdier boots could be had for the same price point in another brand."
