Purchase: Bought off an Ebay seller closing their tack shop for $189 and $5 shipping. I have the Sportive High Rider's and was looking for field boots that would fit my 16.5" calf out of the box.

Likes: I loved that when I zipped these up, I didn't have to struggle to keep the zipper close together. These fit my calf - no problem - I would say they would pretty easily fit up to a 17" calf! The Spanish Top is an elegant cut and I can't wait to start wearing these. They seem very comfortable walking around - which I expected from my Sportive boots. These have a thinner ankle and foot than the Sportive Rider's - making it look more like a quality show boot.

Dislikes: I wish they also came in a wide-short version - these are just a little tall, but I am hoping they will drop just a little. My sportive's barely dropped, so I hope these will a little more.

Quality: Nice leather. Great sturdy zipper. Good quality elastic in the calf Gusset. They look as if they will hold up well.

Summary: If you have a wide calf - one that doesn't quite fit into the wide and extra wide stock models of other companies, try these! The elastic will allow some stretch, too for thicker breeches, etc. I think these are great - however - if you have a wide foot - stick with the Sportive's. These have a refined foot - (although you could cut the elastic laces and put in regular laces to give yourself more room - I guess) I love them and for those who have wide calf fitting issues - I would give these a try - especially if you can get them on sale, like I did!
