I don't know why they changed this boot so much. The original, at a 17" circumference was great and a true wide calf. Sadly, they never made that in other than black (well, they did in brown, but it was oddly made in a regular calf size, even though they called it wide calf!). Please bring back the 17" and the original zip up which makes it truly weatherproof instead of the fabric nonsense, especially on the brown one, where the fabric is orange!?!? Awful! I want a new pair of these because I have worn them out after several years and can't because of these ridiculous changes.
