Where do I start? I now own three pairs of these amazing work boots. I work in the lab and we are required to wear FRC (Fire Resistant Clothing). We also have the option of wearing street clothing but with a lab coat. Wearing street clothes with non-Xena workboots is okay if you're wearing casual, plain t-shirts and jeans. Now I can wear business casual and meet code while looking professional! I love it! After reading the reviews I ordered the brown Nova riding boots in size 9 since I normally wear a size 8 1/2 shoe. I debated on whether to get the narrow or regular calf size and finally decided on the regular. They fit great! I thought the calf was a tad bit roomy so when I ordered a second pair in black I got the narrow calf. They fit snug and comfy. Honestly, I could not tell you which calf size I prefer. Maybe the narrow calf because I just love the snug fit. I would not describe my legs as "skinny" either but I have always received compliments (men and women) on my legs so I am guessing that they are considered "shapely". That statement is for anyone trying to figure out whether to get narrow or regular size boots. The BEST feature is that these boots accommodate my custom made orthotics. The VA (Veterans Affairs) provided me with only one pair and I have to remove/insert them into each pair of shoes I wear. Unfortunately, it is rare for my inserts to fit most shoes unless I order them from a specialty shoe store that makes shoes specifically for accommodating custom orthotics (expensive). In fact, only once have my orthotics fit shoes I purchased from a regular shoe store. Imagine my delight when my custom orthotics fit my Xena work boots! I also have the Omega ankle boots and my orthotics fit in those too! I have received several compliments on these boots at work. My boss even asked me to write down the name of the company so that she could check them out too! Several of my female co-workers have asked me where I purchased my boots and I am always happy to share! I will never purchase my steel-toe work boots from any where else.
I have been working in Funeral Service for over 5 years. I needed a functional but comfortable shoe to get me through the long hours I work on my feet. These are my go to work boot! They help keep my feet safe and warm. And they also offer protection when I am working with hazardous chemicals. They are complimented by my coworkers and friends. I love how fashionable they appear. I wear them with pant suits and with dresses and skirts. I have a narrow calf and they fit me fine, even with thicker socks. But I agree with other reviews, size up and go for the wide calf option if you have anything other than a skinny calf. Thank you Xena for creating something for us hard working women!
This is my 3rd paid of boots from Xena . I’m a 6.5 but in Xena , I wear a size 7. The regular fit works great for me, they are warm and breathable , very comfy ! Look great too. I was concerned with all the different reviews that they might not fit my calf but I’m 5’6 Curvy Athletic build and they work great ! I’ll have all their shoes more than likely by the end of the year at least another color in these as well . Having to wear steel toes everyday , these make me forget I’m even wearing them! Also flashing the compliance card when I get questioned about my shoes on the job site is pretty nice.
Gorgeous boots! After reading the reviews of others, I opted to get the "regular" calf size, and as instructed, went a half size up. Unfortunately, the regular calf size was huge, and I have never purchased boots in a narrow calf in my life. I'm pretty small, but my legs are all around more muscular. I emailed Xena and they immediately got back to me with a link to exchange. The narrow calf size feels snug on the inside where you zip it up, and roomy on the outside, but they look great, and are very comfortable. The leather is excellent quality and after wearing for one night out I had no issues wearing all day at work that week. Definitely recommend wearing around the house and letting the leather stretch to fit you first. Overall, I am very happy with this company and will absolutely purchase from them again!
First off, I am so happy I found Xena and can now feel fashionable, professional, and safe at work. I bought these to stay warm on long walks between buildings at our plant. These boots are absolutely beautiful, no one I work with will believe they are steel toed. It took me a few days to break them in, because they have a good fit and are high quality. So be prepared, I agree with the recommend to wear them around the house first. The calf on these is very tight. I’m pretty sure I have regular size calves (13”) and I have never had an issue with a boot fitting, but these just barely zipped up. Xena is working on an extended calf size, so definitely wait for those if this will be an issue for you. The design of this boot is very similar to the Omega, so I ordered my normal 7.5 in both and they fit perfectly. Be ready for some big complements!
These boots are amazingly comfortable! I look forward to rocking out in them at my shows I work when the weather is cooler!!!!
