I absolutely adore these boots! I was recently in Austin and stopped into Allen’s where I was not able to find a tall pair that I liked, that fit my 16” calves. From Austin we headed to Round Top where I hit Junk Gypsy and they suggested I try Rivertrail Mercantile. I’m so glad I did because these boots are exactly what I was hoping to find and fit like a dream! Plus the leather is such beautiful quality, so buttery and will age so nicely! Lastly the embroidery is just stunning. Every time I wear them, which is quite often, I get at least a handful of compliments every time. I am 5‘3“ and like I said have 16” calves. It’s very challenging to find boots that fit properly, feel good and look amazing. I cannot recommend these boots enough!
