As mentioned above, the low heel height is a plus for me, to be able to wear all day long, doesn't bother my back or feet. Like the back zipper and the typical Ariat fit in the foot. Tops of calves are not chopped straight across, but more of a Spanish top, more flattering. Caramel color of beautiful leather is also beautiful. I will have to have the left foot stretched because of a bunion, no fault of boots and I'm 5'9" with fairly thin calves and will have to have them taken in just a smidge. The boots are meant to be fitted in the calf and even with jeans tucked in they are a bit too loose. Anyone with athletic calves should have no problem. They are a classy, gorgeous boot, with fit in foot , arch, heel typical of Ariat, which has slowly become the only brand of boot I can wear. Toe is a rounded but shaped toe with just enough "point" to them to be stylish and not clunky, yet comfortable. I have 8 pairs of Ariat boots from tall boots to cowboy boots and they have been my go to boot out of my tall boots. Sole has thin rubber traction, not thick, gum rubber soles that would look too clunky for work or going out. I have been looking at other brands and waiting, hopefully, for Ariat to come out with a boot exactly like these and they have filled the bill perfectly with a very classy, rich color as well. I absolutely love them, can you tell??!!
