Raise your hand if you have giant calves and have a super hard time finding wide calf boots that actually fit WIDE calves!
*Raises both hands*
I’ve always had a terrible time trying to find boots that fit my calves. Eventually, I discovered Torrid and found that their boots can accommodate my legs pretty well. I’ve branched out a little more and started trying boots from Lane Bryant, Wet Seal+, and even some tall UGGs.
For reference, my left calf (the bigger of the two) is 18.5 inches at it’s widest point. So all of the boots below, fit at least an 18.5in calf. Many of them even had some extra wiggle room, especially on my right calf which is 17.5 inches. I do not have a wide foot, but these boots all had extra room in the foot area, as well. Some were a little loose in the ankle area, some were not, and you should be able to judge that from the pictures.
I’m thinking of doing a more comprehensive video about wide calf boots, where I actually sit down and talk about the fit of each style and what stores I think are best accommodating to wide calves. Let me know if this is something you might be interested in.
I hope you enjoy these looks, both the boots and the outfits. I tried to offer a nice variety of heeled, flat, leather, suede, brown, black, etc… You can wear these outfits to work, school, on a date, shopping, and just about anywhere else. Let me know which is your favorite!
This lookbook took a few hours to shoot, so you’ll notice the lighting consistently change as the sun took it’s seat for the night. I think it looks kind of cool and love how the mood of the outfits changes with the lighting behind it. Shout out to my photographer for hanging out in the bitter cold to snap these photos and the video lookbook that is at the bottom of this post.
