As a lace-up boot, Floras are very adjustable for a wide variety of ankle, calf, and instep measurements. The top of the Flora boots does not extend to the widest part of the calf muscle. Measurements scale a little based on size.
These measurements based on size 7.5:
Ankle range - 9 to 13 inches / 22.8 cm to 33 cm

Boot top range - 9.4 to 13.4 inches / 24 to 34 cm
