Bellevues: Mattie Silks
In 1881, Denver rival Madames Mattie Silks and Katie Fulton settled a jealous dispute by taking up pistols against each other in a duel over bruiser and gambler Cortez Thomson (who ironically (or deliberately), was the only person injured in the duel). Mattie went on to become the most successful and influential businesswomen that Denver has ever known. She kept steady "business" for 42 years until she ran off with a railroad tycoon, only to return a decade later to resume "business" for another 20 years. Using a soft Italian black leather with two double-buckled straps on a 2.5" Fellowship-hi heel and tunite Bellevue sole, this zipped knee-high boot is sure keep "business" opportunities coming back for more. Keep pushing west and beyond your imagination.
Approximate Calf Measurements: Size 6-7 (13"), Size 8-9 (14") and Size 10-11 (15")
Approximate Boot Shaft Height: Size 6-7 (14.5"), Size 8-9 (15") and Size 10-11 (15.5")

The calf is quite tight on these beauties but it's perfect for people like myself who have skinny legs and have trouble finding boots that fit. The price is a bit steep but these are elegant, sexy boots that are always going to be in style and are the perfect addition to my growing Fluevog obsession.

Love these boots! They are so comfy, wore them at work and then out on the town later. They fit perfect. They did stretch them a bit at the store. Love them!

Finally, a pair of knee-high boots that fit perfectly around my calves. They are comfy to wear and make my legs look so sexy. I'm in love with these beautiful boots. Thanks Fluevog!

slippery when wet
Have a skinny foot and calf, was advised these boots would work for me...LOVE THEM! They are sexy and sleek, and I don't even have to buckle them to the first notch. They are slippery on snow, so my cobbler put on grippy sole. Works like a charm! Thanks for the great service :-}

These are my third pair of Fluevogs and they're absolutely perfect. I purchased the smog grey color at the Boston store after Pete helpfully let me try on one of pretty much every family there. They fit like a dream, and the leather is to die for. I never thought about having 'skinny' legs, but the reason I don't own more boots is that the calf poritons would always flap about or slide down. Not with these beauties! The customizable buckles at the top make it easy to snugly fit the calf portion to your leg. And the look is smoking. I've worn them to work (dresses, suits, and skirts), I've worn them to play (under jeans fairly causal). You can wear them every day! And they're comfortable enough to let you get away with that. They grey is more interesting in person than appears onsite, almost textured/marbled. Love, I say, love. And the best part? Every time I wear them, someone new comments on them. First thing out of people's mouths: where did you get those amazing boots!? Not around here, sadly, but hurray for the internet!

WAY too TIGHT
I tried these on in an 8, which didn't fit right, so I tried the shorter Libby Smith style in an 8.5, which fit better. Long story short I just received my new boots in the mail only to realize that yes, the foot and ankle fit, but the calf is so tight, even with the buckles undone, that I can't even pull them all of the way up on one leg. My legs aren't get-away sticks, but but they aren't tree trunks either. So, ladies, unless you have no calf definition, stick with the shorter styles in the Bellevues! I'm so bummed. Those are such great looking boots!

I'm in love
These boots are damn good looking with everything and super comfortable - what more could a Fluevog Girl want?! This is my 7th pair of Fluevogs, and once again I am over the moon.

These are the best boots in the world and probably my 9th or 10th pair of Fluevogs! I bought them on Saturday in NY, wore them out of the store, walked around Manhattan for 2 hours, went home, then wore them out dancing for 4 more hours that night. (Where I got lots of compliments on them!) I did need to have the calf stretched out a little, but other than that no breaking-in was needed. They're utterly comfortable, sassy & sexy, and amazingly helpful staff at the store. The thing about Fluevogs is that with just a little care, they last for years and years, which makes them worth every penny. Is it wrong to adore a pair of boots this much?

Oh, I am so glad I bought these in NY! My first pair of Fluevogs and I couldn't be happier! I have really skinny legs so finding knee high boots has been difficult, but these fit perfectly! The arch is a bit funny, but I think after a breaking in period it will work out :)
