16 Boots That Solve All Wide Calf Problems

You know that feeling I’m talking about. When you’re pulling and pulling and you just can’t get that boot up. Or when you stuff your jeans in to your socks and your calves feels so claustrophobic that you’d rather go barefoot than keep those boots on for one more second. And the crazy thing about this problem is that there’s such a simple solution: wide-calf boots. I know what you’re thinking, why would anyone want to buy wide-calf boots? But let me tell you from personal experience, it’s totally worth it because no matter how much exercising or dieting you do, you will never change the size of your calves. So you might as well learn a little bit about boot shopping for those suckers, which is why we compiled a list of the best tips:

    • Look for a flare or scalloped top: This will give you some more room at the widest part of your calf, so it won’t feel as cramped.
    • You can get wide calf rain boots: Hunter offers a bunch of different styles, and they have buckles to help them adjust to your size.
    • Stretchy back boots aren’t better than zip: These boots are often smaller at the top because they have that elastic. But in order to get them up, you have to pull them up and over your calf, which doesn’t really work if they’re bigger than normal.
    • Steve Madden boots are wide enough: This is one of the few brands that makes their boots with some extra room. You don’t need to get these in a wide calf because odds are they’ll already fit you.
    • Look for boots with at least a 15.5″ circumference: That’s how you’ll know if it’s a wide calf or not.
    • A ton of brands offer wide calf: Some of the best brands that offer wide calf boots are Sam Edelman, Frye, and Cole Haan, so make sure to check out those designers if you’re in the market.
