These are beautiful thick leather boots. I typically wear a size 8 or 8 1/2. I needed the 8 1/2 in these boots. I have a bunion on my left foot. Really needed to stretch the left boot before they became comfortable. The length is perfect. Just below the knee. They are a great looking boot with jeans.
I got these in the black. As with the other reviewer, I found that there was definitely some rubbing on the ankles. I put in some (Dr. Scholl's) arch supports and rubbed the inside with some lotion and wore some thick socks to protect my ankles. This helped stretch out the boots so that they stopped chafing.
These boots are stunning! With that said, I did have a problem with the first pair that I ordered. I tried them on for the first time and the zipper ripped. For the price of these boots, I don't think you should have problem with a zipper. I did reorder them but I did save all the packaging materials, I just hope that I don't have to send them back, they are a really nice looking boot and very comfortable.
