Wide Calf Boot Boot Shopping Tips:

  • Know that the standard for most boots is about a 15” so if you are looking for boots, use this as your guide!
  • Measure your calf at its widest point- And measure both calves too! If the difference is more than half an inch, go up an inch!
  • If you want to be able to wear your jeans tucked in, take this into account when shopping!
  • Measure from your heel to height desired to determine how high you want them to go!
  • Quality is key. The worst thing to do is hunt down a pair of boots only for them to fall apart after one season! I suggest that you invest in them, since you will more than likely be rocking them all season long and beyond! I have boots from five years ago! I love them and live for them!
  • Are you petite, plus size, and have wide calves? WideWidths.com breaks this down quite nicely!
  • Okay, so I hope this helps you out! A great place to start while shopping and options to whet your fashion appetite?!?

    Great post. FYI – Duo does offer free shipping to the US, no minimum. And shipping with them is super fast. But be prepared to get hit with a customs invoice bill from DHL a few days after your boots arrive, for 10% of the value of your boots. I had to return the boots I ordered from them, they didn’t fit right in the ankles, but the boots were great quality.

  2. Black Women Save says

    I have also picked up Wide Widths from Shoe Dazzle of all places. Great list, Thank you. I see new boots in my Future

    I have several pair from Lane Bryant. The over the knee ones are fabulous and I get so many compliments on them. They also have a couple of pair of cowboy boots with a zipper up the back which comes in handy for tucking in your pant legs! I am very happy with the boots from Lane Bryant!

    I totally love riding boots but can’t ever seem to find ones that accommodate my calves. I think one of the shops you mention might just make my fall that much better. THANKS!

    I’m struggling to find knee high boots. I’ve tried amazon ebay and jd williams. I’m a size uk 3 / 36 my calves are 43cm but I’m also short 4’10 with narrow feet. So nothing fits right. The ones from amazon said calf width 17″ but I could only get the zip up half way. I ordered some size 4 EEEEE Curvy from jd williams they have lots of calf widths and it drowned my foot. Any ideas desperate for some boots. Thanks in advance

      Hi! Did you check out widewidths.com (linked above)? I am short as well – but they have a great explanation as well as tips to buying the right size boot for those of us who are on the short side! Since we are shorter – the widest part of our calf is slightly below what would be the widest part of the calf of someone taller or average height. Check them out! I too have tried Amazon and the boots are always too tight or don’t zip :(

    Omg! Thank you for this! I have never owned a pair of boots (aside from ankle boots) because I can’t find any that fit! Wide widths explains it perfectly for petite women like me (I’m 4’11”) who have a larger calf size (mine measure 16″). Apparently the largest portion of the calf is different for petite women – slightly lower than someone taller. Totally life changing information! thank you so much – I look forward to owning one or two nice pairs of boots in the near future!
