I love these boots, but I did have an issue because I do have big calves. I immediately opened them when I got them and my jaw just dropped because of how gorgeous these are. I am normally a size 12, so that’s what I purchased. And my feet do fit in them, but I could only zipper them about 1/2 way up because of my calves. I wish they would’ve put some kind of stretchy material on the side or perhaps a measurement for the calf area/opening. That maybe would’ve stopped me from buying them. But like my other Demonia shoes, they’re too adorable to get rid of, so off to the shoe guy to see if there is something they can do. If not, then I’m afraid I’m going to have to return and get the ankle boot version. Also, I had a little trouble with the zipper when I had my feet in them, so I would recommend breaking in the zipper before you put your feet in them and try to zip them up.
Overall, I would recommend them if you have normal-sized/smaller calves. If not, be prepared to take them to your shoe guy or get the ankle version (crypto- 51) of this shoe instead. But they are very gorgeous so be ready to become very attached when you open the box!
