Fall is all about chunky sweaters and tall boots, but as someone with wide calves, finding the right boots can be a challenge. Even the boots labeled as wide calf in stores don't always fit right, so I needed to find places I could shop.
And I did.
Thanks to stores like Avenue and Torrid, and online retailers, like 6pm, I can find cute tall boots that fit me.
Sitting in a chair, measure the widest part of your calf with a tape measure. Then, you will be able to choose the boot with the shaft size that matches. Wide calf boot shaft circumference averages from 16-20 inches.
Keep in mind that many retailers base the shaft circumference on the foot size...the bigger your foot, the bigger the calf circumference...this gets tricky when you have a small or average foot and wider calf.
Here is a roundup of my favorite three from each retailer.
