8 Wide-Calf Boots to Give You More Room This Fall
Tall, ankle, all the options
Boot lovers, stand up. Sometimes, don't you just need a bit more breathing room in the calves? If you've ever had this shopping conundrum, look no further. We found eight excellent options for boots with a wider shaft. (And a wider ankle boot for good measure.)
Wide-Calf Riding Boots
Classic equestrian style that fits a calf circumference of 16 inches. (Tall boots are typically about 14 inches around.)
Sam Edelman ($150)
Extra-Wide-Calf Riding Boots
If the pair was still too snug, try these, which come in at 19.5 inches.
Easy Street ($90)
Over-the-Knee Riding Boots
The trendiest boots right now are the ones that come clear up to your thighs. But that can often require a bit more wiggle room. These have an extra inch for you.
Over-the-Knee Heeled Boots
The beauty of these: The larger the foot size, the larger the shaft. So tall ladies who wear a size 12, your circumference is 20 inches.
Adjustable Rain Boots
Pulling on narrow rubber is the worst. (Especially on an already gloomy day.) Save yourself at least one headache by slipping into these 16-inch babies.
Over-the-Knee Stretch Boots
If you’re somewhere in the middle, consider allover stretch. These extra-tall boots aren’t labeled as “wide calf,” but they do expand to 16 inches in circumference.
Steve Madden ($130)
Over-the-Knee Velvet Boots
Sure, they’re a bit more of a splurge, but doesn’t stretchy velvet sound the coziest?
