I bought this at the end of last year and only used them a couple of times, they're warm and comfy. However, this year I put them on and as soon as I got where I was going, i wanted to change them as I looked on my reflection at a store and I looked so frumpy. I have to say I lost weight since last year, so they should look a bit better but the fur is too fluffy or the boots just hit in the middle of the thickest part of my calves and that maybe makes them look shorter...... I wish I could exchange them or return them altogether. The traction on the soles need improving as well. I'm 5'6 and I weigh 130 lbs. the selling point for me was that they were the only higher boots that had an inner zipper and made them more convenient to put them on and off and I didn't have to adjust the laces every time I put them on. Granted, they're warm and comfy.
