Love the way these feel.... the leather upper is great, however, they take some work to get on. The zipper is only a partial zipper by the ankle, and the shaft of the boot is so tight, that I have to fold the top over to pull it up high enough so it doesn't bunch by my ankles. At first, the bunching caused the zipper to fold and press against my ankle which was painful. If I didn't have hope that it will eventually stretch out because of it being leather, I would have returned them right away. They seem to be stretching out the more I wear them, so I will keep them. I would not recommend these to a friend unless they have super thin calves (I usually wear a regular with plenty of calf room).
