These boots are great. The sole is a thick rubber with tread, there is plenty of room for the calf, and for the sale price of $50, they are an excellent deal.
Boots seem to be very nice quality and the fit is good. I haven't had the chance yet to wear them to an event but they seem to be sturdy and well made.
After wearing the boots for less then 30 minutes the sole of the right boot separated. The covers also fell off when I put the boots on. These boots are trash!!!!
