The wide calf boot struggle is too real. Just about every plus size babe I know has, at one time, ached for the perfect knee high autumn boot that will look perfect with literally every single thing you own. I spent years thinking that boots just weren’t something I got to wear, but the tides are changing and more wide calf boot options are coming out every single year. You can even find some for under $40 now!!! Whether you’re looking for high end leather boots that will last you a life time, or a good time party boot that’s gonna be super trendy and good to you for a season, there is a wide calf boot out there for anyone!
Because the demand for plus size boots has increased drastically over the last couple years, it is really important to start looking for your Fall boots early in the season. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve waited for a boot to go on sale and had my heart broken when it was sold out a week later.
Before you buy, remember that it is essential to know the measurement around the largest part of your calf. Gently wrap a measuring tape around the widest part of your calf (this is usually easiest to do with a relaxed calf while sitting down and lifting your leg slightly). Once you have that measurement, your boot buying journey will become so much simpler. Protip: almost all online retailers provide shopping assistance through their customer service phone numbers (or email if the phone makes you a little anxious). If you are totally stumped on what size boot to buy give them a call!
