These boots are awesome. It is ridiculously hard to find boots when you're both short AND have slim calves. At 5'3, most riding boots are too tall and hit the back of my knee, but these hit at a perfect spot a couple inches below my knee, instead of swallowing my lower legs whole. My calves are right at 13.25 inches and these fit perfect both with pants and without. Just the right amount of room. What is even better is that these come in wide width that accommodates my slightly wide toebox while NOT being too big in the ankle like many other wide widths on me. I wear a 6.5 or 7; got these in a 7W but probably have a little more room than I need length wise. They even have a great feeling memory foam insole. The leather doesn't scratch easily, but I will say the sweater/knit fabric on the back worries me. Have had a few threads come loose (stay away from any small jumpy dogs!) and while the mix adds style I probably would've preferred leather all the way around. Also a bit worried about the sweater material pilling in the future but so far so good. All in all I have NEVER had this success with boots, and am thrilled. If you are short with slim calves, give them a try!

Great boots!My daughter and I had been looking for boots for months. We both have big feet and narrow calves, and it seemed like every pair we tried on that was big enough for our feet would also hold two of our legs. Then we found these! I got them in black and she got the dark brown. Comfortable toe box, moderate arch support, nice detailing.

Who's that girl w/the SKINNY legs? That'd be me. Tried several pairs only to have to return some beauties. The Zappos description and the noted 13 1/2" circumference were right on. Thanks Zappos!

This year's boot quest is finally over! I've found the perfect-fitting, comfortable, stylish, waterproof boot. The Aetrex Chelsea boot, for me, hugs my foot AND my tall, slim calves. I have no problem getting the boot on, though I have high arches and it only has a half zip on the side. The grey color is wonderfully neutral and the leather is smooth and very high quality. Perhaps most important for me, this boot really holds my heel steady, so I'm not worried about ankle twists. And my hip and back pain during my daily 4 mile commute have disappeared after only 3 three days. Love them!

Liked the look and comfort of these boots. They smelled pretty plasticky, but I'm sure that would have dissipated after they were aired out for a bit. I like the appearance of the sweater knit on the back if the boot, but you can't wear slim-cut jeans under it because if there is any bunching at all of the pants, it is highlighted as lumpiness under the fabric. So they would only be usable for tights. Not versatile enough for me.
