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?!?
