Aerosoles Extended Calf Tall Wedge Boots - Wonderling
I ordered this boot because of the wide-calf/shaft option. I love this boot. It is stylish, modern and gorgeous. However, I DO NOT like the wide-calf/shaft option. It is ugly and weird looking. Basically, the wide-calf accessory means that this boot has 2 zippers. The one up the inside of the boot is for putting it on. But there is a second zipper, farther back that you can unzip if you have a large calf. When it is unzipped, there is a "V" of fabric between the open zipper sides. It is highly visible from behind and looks strange. It kinda reminds me of zippers that allow you to expand a suitcase to fit more stuff. Well, on a suitcase it's not a problem. On a stylish, and expensive, boot, it is. Too bad, because otherwise this boot was exactly what I was looking for: silver-tone accents, wedge, casual but could be dressed up, comfortable, stylish, and beautiful.
It would be great if the manufacturer could figure out a way to make this wide-calf zipper option next to the zip on/off zipper, on the inside of the leg, where it would be less noticeable and might not look as weird.
Great Looking and Comfortable Too
These boots are so comfortable to wear. The wedge hill is the perfect height and it feels like I'm walking on cushions. I've never been able to wear this style boot for a long period of time, but wore them for 6 hrs today; mostly walking and they felt great. Also like the fact that they can be adjusted to fit a wider calf. I was skeptical about the wonderling material as I was looking for leather, but they clean up nicely and look great. Probably won't wear them in slushy snow, but if you're looking for style and comfort...these are it.
LOVE THESE BOOTS
I love the rich brown color and the style of these boots. I ordered wide but the width is no comparison to Clarks and White Mountain boots. They are more like medium.. . I am going to try and wear knee highs to see if they stretch. I really want to keep them. Since Aerosoles have been around for a long time, I expected more from them.
I found these quite by accident as they are an older style and probably haven't been on air in a while. However, they should be as they are a find!! I love them, so much so that I first ordered black and came back for the dark brown. They are comfortable, fit true to size with thin socks/stockings and soft. They feel like suede and I love that they are not as then if I happen to get caught in the rain, all is okay. I did buy the wide as I have athletic calves but don't even need to unzip the second zipper unless I'm tucking in jeans so I really appreciate the they don't look big with skirts but can also accommodate pants. Also, heel height is perfect -- not too high, not too low. Buckle on sides is a plus. Highly recommend!
Not wide enough
Boots are nice! but not true to size. I expected better from Aerosoles.
I've been looking for a new brown boot for this season and so happy I finally found it. The price/quality is great. I'm usually a 7.5 Wide, but went up a size to an 8 Wide and glad I did. They fit great and will allow for heavy socks. The calf is very large. I have average sized calves and had to tighten the buckle at the top and it's still a little big. I'll never need the second zipper, but it's great to help it fit everyone.
I wasn't sure about this boot when I ordered it. I took the chance anyway, and glad I did! I got these boots in the tan color (size 8), and they fit great! Very comfortable and easy to walk in. The wedges are fantastic. I will be ordering another pair in a different color.
I will keep but...
Some of the customers critiques are correct there is absolutely no padding in the bed of the shoe. The reason I'm going to keep the boots is because I like the look of them. I am going to invest in a good pair of insoles to put in the boot, that will be my saving grace. Aresoles please do better by this item! I mean the boots are cute, just make them comfortable.
Fits True to Size
I received these boots today. I normally wear size 8 1/2 medium width and these boots fit perfect. My calf muscle is 14.5" around - these boots fit around my legs just fine not snug and you can get almost stick two fingers inside the boot. My ankles are 8 1/2" around - the boot in this area slouches, but it looks ok. I'm 5'2" and the top of the boot hits right where your knee bends. My foot is wide and this size medium fit comfortably. It is a very stylish boot and comfortable immediately, no breaking in. Only reason 4-star, the materials are all man-made.
size way off
I need a wide boot, this was a great price nice boot, but the wide wasn't as wide as a regular medium, very disappointed, its one thing to be little off but these are not even in the area of close.
I love these boots! I have been searching for a stylish boot that was also comfortable. I hit the jackpot with this one . Only recommendation is to go up a 1/2 size or a whole size if you wear thicker sock....
Love the Look
Did not think I would ever again wear a boot with a heel but decided
to give this wedge a try. They fit like a glove & they don't kill my feet.
Bought the black, then went back for a second pair (tan combo)
Style & comfort....Love them
