2017 Shopping Guide: Where to find Tall Boots That Fit Wide Calves Above 18 Inches
It’s officially boot season! For many of us, finding a pair of tall boots that fits our wide calves can be a challenge.
While in the past, most wide calf tall boots only fit calves up to 18″, now there are options that fit calves larger than that. YESSSSS!
Here’s a few tips to keep in mind when shopping for wide calf tall boots:
Have your tape measure ready! – Measure your calf at its widest point while sitting. Make sure to measure both calves, in case they are not the same in width. If there is the difference is more than a half inch, go up an inch to ensure proper (and comfortable!) fit.
Don’t put away that tape measure just yet! – Make sure to measure from your heel to desired height. This will help when especially shopping online for tall boots. You want to make sure the boot is hitting you at a length you want and not too high or low.
Don’t be afraid to try them on! – If you’re shopping in-store, make sure to try on different styles because you never know. Calf widths tend to get larger with shoe size so the larger your shoe size is, the wider the boot is. Make sure to stand after getting them on and zip them up as you’re standing. Standing will help you zip them up more easily.
Know your return policies! – When shopping online, always check the return policy as that can get costly. Some companies do offer free returns but not all.
