I'm am a bit of a boot snob. Don't understand all the petty reviews. These are well made gorgeous shoes. I have had many boots with cost not an option and still these are the sharpest of them all.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ann1130 Beautiful boots
I have been eyeing these for a while and when I saw the clearance price, I decided it was time to get them. My calves are 16 3/4 inch on the right and 17 on the left and the wide calf fit me beautifully. I did not have to unzip the back zipper. The leather and suede are high quality and gorgeous. My only 2 negatives would be the wrap around buckle straps are not real leather and you can tell it. Also, it does not wrap all the way around the boot, kind of wish it would so it would be more believable. The boot does slouch a bit on me (especially the brandy color) but I can live with it. I got the brandy and the bordeaux and the bordeaux color is a bit darker in person than the video which is fine with me. I would have also bought the black but my size was gone. If you are looking for a gorgeous leather/suede boot, then these are worth taking a look at.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Noel87 Not Wide Calf
My grandma accidentally bought me a size 11, but even with an entire size bigger the foot frame was narrow and small. Not to mention the calf was not wide what so ever. Really beautiful boot, but we are sending it back. I couldn't even zip it up all the way. About 4 inches from the top it got too small. It should not be called a wide calf. My mom who's 5'7" 140 lbs barely fit in the wide calf. Not worth the shipping fee it takes to try on.

Wide calf? Not. Description says the circumference for calf is 17", Not.
My calves measure 16-1/2 at widest part, which is why I chose to order these -- and I can barely zip these boots up halfway. Plus the foot was difficult to get my foot into, extremely narrow at heel base. And I normally wear a medium shoe with no trouble. I have not had this problem with other so-called wide-calf boots... purchase Mizrahi and Marc Fisher with no problems. Also, these came with the right boot having several ugly scratches in the top leather section, as though they were previously used/abused. That is unusual for QVC quality control; it surprised me. Add to that the horrible fit (and I ordered a half size up from my usual) and these boots are NOT for me. For a lot less money, I got much better fitting boots that are just as stylish, and deliver what they describe. These are going back immediately.

These are beautiful boots! I love Franco Sarto---so it is no surprise! Years ago bought a pair of Franco Sarto ankle boots on clearance and have kicked myself ever since that I didn't buy TWO pair of the same thing!
I normally wear a 7 and bought a 7. I bought the wide calf which was fine with me. The zipper went up just fine. I bought the aubergine which goes great with my new "Dooney & Bourke" crock purse in Bordeaux that I bought from QVC last week--- :)
Now---only one problem (well maybe two). Needs to get cooler for me to wear them and have to come up with a whole new wardrobe for my new purse and boots! ha ha.
I would love to see one of the hosts, maybe Mary Beth or Jill, "using their own closet of QVC Fashions" ----help with pairing items together. I have a closet full of clothing and I find it difficult to put outfits together. (just a suggestion)
They "ARE" Snug! However, remember leather will stretch after a few wearings. I buy pretty compression socks (you can search for them using those words) that are thin, and that stay up, to wear with my boots.
In my opinion, Franco Sarto is the definition of quality!

I don't understand all the negative reviews for these boots. I almost didn't order them, but decided to take a chance and am so glad I did! I've had Franco Sarto shoes before and they've always been high quality, and these boots are no exception. I wear a size 10 and have a 16" calf, and these boots fit true to size and I can easily zip them up over jeans even without opening the back top zipper. I got the black, and they're so beautiful and such a classy look! Love the little heel that gives me just the right amount of height without being too high. The suede visually slims the calf and the ankle straps are just the perfect touch. Very happy with my purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NCsoonergirl Very High Quality!
These are the BEST pair of boots I've ever bought!! They are very comfortable and the perfect size for my 16" calf. Most wide calf boots are too big but these are perfect!! I get compliments every time I wear them. Well worth the money!

I purchased these boots because the leather and suede make me stand out in the crowd. I am tired of basic boots. When I saw the presentation, the first thing did was to get the tape measure out and measure my calves. All you ladies complaining about the boots not fitting need to measure. My calves are 15 inches I wear a size 9 and I sized up to a 10. These boots give me life . I get lots of compliments too.
