If there’s one thing that’s SO. HARD. to purchase as a woman with thick calves, it’s boots. While i’m no expert, there are two pairs that i’ve found over the years that I just had to share.
The above is the Hunter Boots “Huntress” that i’ve posted about in this post, and this one. The calf circumference is 16 inches and they come to just about 2 inches below the knee. These boots are spectacular, and have been a staple in my wardrobe for many years.
The second is the Enzo Angiolini “Sumilo” boot. A classic just-below-the-knee black boot, with a 3 inch heel, you just can’t go wrong. These boots have been in my wardrobe for years (this post, as an example), and are so comfortable. They have a 16 inch calf circumference with leather that will give just a bit more than that for ladies with even wider calves. While i’m not the hugest fan of the buckle, I decided to keep these because of their versatility, and at the time when I bought them, so few options.
Are there any wide-calf boots you’ve found and love? In particular, please do send along recommendations for an over-the-knee boot for us wide-calf ladies.
