“Dear Clotheshorse, I am loving all the fall knee-high boots this season but have a hard time finding a pair that will fit my calves. Are there any stylish boots out there for gals like me with wider calves?”
The above question was recently posed to me and I can sympathize since years of riding have left me with muscular calves that don’t always fit in tight, zip up, knee-high boots. After doing some extensive research I was able to find a treasure trove of stylish boots that come in wider calf widths, whether you need a little extra room or a lot there are great options out there.
Your first stop should be WideWidths.com, where every boot on their site comes in wide calf sizes. Ask and you shall receive via the internet, it truly has it all. WideWidths.com has a great selection of flat, high-heel, knee-high, over the knee, dressy and casual boots. A one stop shop! Many of the boots come in a variety of calf widths so take a soft tape measure and measure the widest part of your calf on both legs in order to determine which size will work best for you.
