A year of weekly kickboxing classes has whipped me into shape, but unfortunately that “shape” includes more-muscular-than-average calves. It’s next to impossible to zip or tug most knee-high boots over skinny jeans and my wider calves, an inconvenience that’s hard to bear when I love the look.

Apparently I’m not the only one with the problem, though, because many shoe sellers are showing boots for wide calves. Here’s our guide to the coolest selection of wide calf boots:

We love Annie’s Beckie boots ($90) for their classic and refined English riding look, a la the boots Betty Draper wears in Mad Men.


Gabriella Rocha’s hit suede slouch boots come in 11 colors, from basics to trendy eggplant and red. At $70, you might even consider stocking up.

Naturalizer’s leather and suede Dandy boots ($134) are perfect for every day wear—flattering, comfortable and easy to dress up or down.

Find the best pair for you by browsing our guide to boots for wide calves, along with the best denim for your shape.
