Rated 4 out of 5 by Hemlocks Calf less than specs state
I was excited to see the calf dimensions and 16 inch height on this waterproof 'dress' boot from Merrill. I opened the box and loved the way they looked. They would have looked great with pants or casual dresses. However, I could not zip them up. My calf is 15 1/4 inches; the specs said "15 1/2" calf circumference. Stretches to fit wide calf." I had to take them back. I gave them 4 stars because they looked great; I liked the quality of the leather; and the foot bed was very comfortable.
Rated 3 out of 5 by ksulli Beautiful boot, but very tight at calf
This boot is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately this boot does not 'expand to fit a wide calf' as advertised. I while my foot fit fine I couldn't get the zipper zipped more than an inch or two as the lower calf circumference is extremely tight. It's unfortunate as if this boot fit better if buy a pair in every color
Rated 5 out of 5 by DonnaC11 Love this Boot!
I bought this pair because I have owned a similar pair of brown Merrell Boots for a few years now. . These boots are very comfortable, nice fit around the calf, they look great with everything. Most importantly, they wear extremely well. Ive had my original pair for years and have worn them in all weather including snow and rain and they still look good enough to wear with a cute jeans outfit.

Bought similar merrill boots 3 years ago for my daughter-in-law and she has worn them constantly in cold weather. She reports that they are comfortable and likes that they are waterproof. She had a zipper replaced on her original pair last year but I bought them again as a birthday gift because she likes and wears them so much!
