Rated 4 out of 5 by JESingle Good boots
i bought these on sale, and never have bought shoes online before so took a chance. They were true to size, but a little tight in the upper calf area, but still fit and felt comfortable, so I am keeping them. I was pleased, and once again j jill has not let me down.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mystyle54 Read these reviews before ordering these boots!
Everyone said the calf area was too small. Right again. I don't have large calfs but it was impossible to zip. The boot shaft is too tall and when you sit it's uncomfortable. They look like there is no right or left which I think makes them look strange. The foot area is very deep so they were not well fitting. I was very disappointed.

Fits high up to knee, just right heel height. I feel sexy and classy wearing this boot. Bought in both black and brown.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cabfranc Not for tall gals
These are beautiful, high grade leather boots with a stylish but walkable heel. Because they are shaped to hug the calf, they don't work on long legs -- the calf curve is way below where my calf starts so they look baggy. Had high hopes but no one seems to make boots for tall women's longer legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JRAY63 fits great!
I was worried about the fit of this boot, so I asked JJill a question about the length of the shaft. Other reviewers thought the fit was too tight in the calf, and too tall in the shaft. They fit me perfectly!! They are tall, but not uncomfortable. No problem with the height behind the knees. I got them on sale to boot.... no pun intended :)
I am 5'5" and weigh 123 lbs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shellie Lovely design, extremely tall shaft.
The shaft is TALL. One of the Q&As mentioned the shaft length varies with size. I ordered a 7 and am 5'4". The top of the boot is stiff and really, really dug into the back of my knees when I sat down. I couldn't bear that feeling more than half a minute. Just way too tall for me. I have slightly smaller than average calves (apparently) at 13.5" flexed and I felt I was going to zip up my calf into these boots. They fit tightly on the calf, but not at the ankle, leaving a bit of extra leather around the ankle before becoming attractively, if not quite comfortably, snug at the calves. There would be no tucking in with these boots, I don't think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doxiemom Fit me like a glove
I have thin legs but my calves are more muscular than most ladies' due to many years of cycling. I can never find attractive tall boots that fit my calves without squeezing them and having to force the zippers up over them. These boots are perfect for me. I wish they came in other colors like burgunday, oxblood, or even gunmetal gray - because I would definitely buy them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ebony56 Nice leather
When I first received these boots I tried them on, the calf area is tight and also the instep. I ordered my correct size and don't have a larger than normal calf. So I decided to take the boots to my shoe repair shop to see if they could be stretched. They were stretched and instep is fine but the calf area is still some what tight. I definitely could not wear them with leggings. But I like the look and the sale price, so I will be wearing them with dresses and skirts.
