Tacoma Extra Wide Shaft

The shaft is VERY wide - much bigger than most extra-wide shafts - I have a solidly 18-inch muscular calf and this would give me room for even straight-leg jeans to get folded and tucked in. On my skinnier-than-most ankles, it was a little roomy, although it did taper down pretty nicely. Returning because not exactly the shape I needed - wanted something I could also wear with skirts, and with my leg shape this is a little airy and almost pirate-y on top (which was a wacky rare and delightful experience for me), but y'all girls with even-more-serious calves, rejoice! These will probably work well. The boot itself is kind of a nice midpoint style-wise: would work for either dress or casual, and a nice height heel that looks dressier than a riding-boot that is very comfortable to walk in. It's lined with a touch of foam, which gives it structure and I would think might make it a little warmer than unlined or fabric-lined boots (There won't be a lot of extra stretch...although if my weight-lifter/climber calves get extra room, a lot of people won't need it.)

First off, I love the looks of these shoes. They are beautiful on the foot. The downside is that because I have a high arch they aren't comfortable for walking much. The "upper" cuts into the top of my foot. That being said, they are easily adjusted via the back strap; they are easy to put on & take off; they feel stable; look well made. I would recommend them with reservations.

Of course there's always a risk when purchasing something before trying it on, but these dress shoes turned out to be everything I hoped they'd be: Well-made, pretty, and as comfortable as any shoe with more than a 1-inch heel will be with my high arches. I also have a bunion, which creates a challenge to find comfortable shoes of any description, but I found that ordering it in a "wide" provides a roomy-enough fit. Highly recommend.

This was a lovely shoe but it didn't fit my foot. I deal constantly with chronic pain in my heel following a bad injury so my review isn't really a fair one.

What a terrific shoe, especially for warmer months because it has an attractive embellishment of tiny holes in the leather. It is also leather lined, another huge benefit in summer and all year long. The Mary Jane strap is secure and the shoe has good support. For me the heel is a bit wide but that is often true. The foot bed is more than adequate. If I am out and about all day I also can insert my Naot footbed for their Mary Jane.

I wanted to love this shoe because I loved how it looked, however, it was really tight in the bunion area. It was even tighter when I put in my orthotic. My bunion isn't that big, but it is big enough to be uncomfortable in this shoe. I'm sure it would stretch out eventually because it's leather, but getting there would be painful. I am so disappointed to have to return it.

David Tate Miller black booties fit comfortable right out of the box! They look and feel very stylish. They look great with skinny or straight fit jeans. Booties are true to size with thin pair of socks. I am very pleased with this purchase and well worth the money. I highly recommend this pair of high end looking booties! Thanks for your fast and great service. Customer service was more than happy to credit me after the booties went on sale. Thumbs up!

Beautiful booties! extremely comfortable and soft leather. True to size for me, should have taken Zappos suggestion first go around. I had my heart set on the Gwen style but got the wrong size and it was sold out of mine. Style didn't fit well so I took a chance on these. Zappos got these to me in time for my 5 day conference. I walked miles in these over several days. Why are these hotel/conference centers so enormous!! My feet were comfortable the whole time though. I take a 7W and these fit perfectly with good support. Works well with pants, skirts and dresses.

After reading a lot of the reviews I was worried about rather these boots would work for me. Let me start by saying that the look of the boot is very pretty; the leather is soft and supple, the corset-like back that allows for all the stretching is brilliantly camouflaged as stylish detailing. The heel is only about two inches which makes it manageable for a long day at work or running after my terrorist like children; if you have extra room add an insole to maximize comfort. I have a calf measurement of just under 18 inches and the 9W boot is loose on my calves, having said that, I don't mind it because I will be able to wear regular skinny jeans instead of just jeggings or leggings. The width of the shoe is debatable because I don't need to wear a wide width shoe normally, I specifically ordered the wide width so that I could wear thicker socks. I tried them on with normal socks and only just had extra room for thicker socks. I would say that if you have a thicker calf, meaning larger than 18 inches, you may be in luck with these boots, though I will caution that if you have thicker ankles, this may present a problem. All in all the boots are beautifully made and apart from a little extra room around the calf, I am happy with my purchase.

This looks nice and well-made. Size is a little bigger than I was expecting, but good for inserts or winter socks. The picture made me nervous because of how... flippy? the top rim looks, but the actual product looks fine. There is some insulation on the shaft, but I don't like this because it ends up accentuating the size of your calf. My calves are ~17.3" and there was some difficulty pulling up the zipper, but fit was fine over skinny jeans.

I was originally looking for an open deep-V bootie. This is the closest I found in my size. While I wish it didn't have the elasticized panel behind the V, which is like wearing a camisole on your foot, it's still a nice looking shoe and fits well.

At last, a shoe that fits my problematic feet. It is comfortable as is but I plan to add my Naot insoles for a even firmer support. One of the best things is that the lining is leather, not hot microfiber or some sort of plastic product. Leather lined shoes are increasingly hard to find and expensive but are the best.

Returned these boots. Leather did not look good for the price and the calf was HUGE. Even if I were going to tuck jeans into them, the calf would still be loose and clanging around my calf as I walked. I have normal sized calves, not super skinny.

Very comfortable for all day wear with moderate amount of walking/commuting. Just enough heel height without feeling like I’m towering. Easy on and off with no pulling or excessive pushing of foot into the boot. Toe is pointed without looking silly and the pebbled leather is very fine, looks nearly smooth. Only wish would be for a tad bit more cushion around the ball of the foot but otherwise I really love these boots!

I have such a tough time finding shoes. Wide feet bunions, narrow heel. I was skeptical but ordered these anyway based on the reviews. They are so cute and they actually FIT and are comfortable. I’m in love!!!!!!

This is a beautiful shoe, but unfortunately was so uncomfortable I had to send it back. The material is very stiff and dug into my feet. No way I could wear these all day to a wedding.

Holy cow I'm so happy to have found these boots! I bought my last pair of large calf boots a few years ago here at Zappos but couldn't find that brand when I needed to replace. I have 19" calves and these boots fit like a charm with leggings or tights (but I don't think I could wear these over a pair of jeans). The only gripe I have is that I do have a normal width foot, and my feet feel a little bit snug, but not shoved or too tight in there (a wide width might have helped, but I was too excited to wear these and said phooey on exchanging). They're comfortable and I don't feel fatigued when I have these on and I'm standing for a period of time. And believe the hype when everyone says the leather gets softer... after a couple times with these on, when I went to take them off, my hand touched the leather and I just let out an aaaaaahhhhh. Beautiful boots. Hopefully with a little more wear then maybe I can do the over-the-pant-leg attempt :)

I have a hard foot to fit, wide with a high instep. These felt good at first, then the stitching on the side started to dig into my foot. Arch support was ok, but I really had to put in my orthotics and that's when the stitching started to bother me. Nice shoe and have had some luck with David Tate shoes in the past. But just not this one.
