Frankenstorm Style + Finally Found: Wide-Calf Hunter Boots

Dress: NY&C (old, similar), Scarf: Asos (old, similar), Belt: Nordstrom (similar), Boots: Hunter Huntress

Between Frankenstorm terrorizing North Carolina (thanks Mother Nature for that one), and our work schedules, the boyfriend and I are spending the week (and last weekend) apart. Which for us fashion bloggers means rain-centered outfits and indoor remote controlled photos. Allow me to apologize in advance for the awkward faces and strange locations. After an unfortunate incident that involved my camera crashing to the floor on a tripod, I haven’t quite braved taking self portraits outside just yet. In other news, i’m in love with Hunter boots and want to wear them every. single. day.

I have really, really wide calves. We are talking 17inch circumference here. So Hunter’s standard boots didn’t fit me, much like every other tall boot. After a bit of searching and digging, I found that Hunter does indeed make a boot for us wide-calved ladies: the Hunter Huntress! With an 18inch calf circumference and ever so slightly shorter shaft height, these boots are absolute perfection. While they don’t come in every crazy color that the standard ones do, I was perfectly happy with my Hunter green, admittedly inspired by the so-stylish mama of The Daybook.

P.S. Behold my new headshot below (jokes). I might not be able to take a decent outfit picture of myself but by gosh can I take a face shot.

    I’ve been looking for tall boots that fit me, may I know what size are you wearing and where did you find it?

      Hi Andrea,

      I love these boots. I ordered a size 9 and they fit perfectly when worn with thicker socks (which is how I wanted them). I ordered them online from Bloomingdales during a 30% off sale.

    I am looking for these boots, but I can only find the Huntress in a size 16 1/2 inch circumference. At what website/store did you find these?

  • Harper

    Hi the site says 16.5 in and I have 17inch calves! Sooo glad they fit bc I was nervous! You’re sure you have 17 right? 🙂

    Thank you so, so much for including your calf size and photos of you in this blog post.

    My calves are nearly 18″ and nowhere on any shoe website, including Zappos (who are usually fantastic about covering all their bases), is there information on whether these would fit my legs. In fact, Zappos gives the circumference of these boots as 16″! Your photos and measurements helped me SO much. Very grateful!
