As amazing as boot season is, it can be difficult for some women to find a pair of tall boots that fit perfectly, or any pairs of boots for that matter. And finding tall boots can be a never ending battle for both women with wide calves and women who are petite. Luckily, there are certain brands that offer exclusive boot lines that are tailored for women who have these body types. We did some digging to find the best boots for wide calves and the best boots for short women, and are here to serve some options. In addition to that, we also found an additional boot style that is super flattering for petite women and that also gives them a bit of extra height.

Best Tall Wide Calf Boots: 

DSW carries a variety of tall boots that fit comfortably around wide calves. These two-toned boots are trendy, go with literally any outfit that you pair them with, and are even offered in two different wide calf sizes. You can select either a medium or wide calf fit, and also choose from an all-black or all-brown color boot too if you don’t want a two-toned style. And not to mention, they’re so stylish and comfortable that they’ve received nearly a 5-star rating from DSW customers online.

The suede boot fall trend is also definitely one here to stay. And you can join in on the popular style even if you have wide calves thanks to these Unisa Subrina boots. Not only do you get amazing comfort, you also score a major deal on these $60 boots compared to their original retail price of $100. They also feature a partial inside zipper closure so they’re super easy to slide on and off when getting ready in the morning.

Best Tall Boots For Short Women, & More:  

Of course short women can wear tall boots too! Personally, I’m all too familiar with tight boots hitting my 5’1 frame in all the wrong places. I’ve found that boots with a wider upper are more comfortable for me when they hit around my knee cap. That’s why these Target Journee Collection Slouchy Round Toe Boots are great for short women.

Apart from slouchy tall boots for my petite frame, I’m also a big fan of ankle boots since they don’t swallow up my entire leg. Plus, heeled booties also give me extra height. These Lara Chelsea boots from Target are great for petite women since they hit just above the ankle and have a short block heel, which makes them super easy to walk around in all day. They’re also offered in a wide range of sizes from 5.5-11 and 5.5 wide-9.5 wide.
