Boot season is upon us! It’s time for us to bust out the cold-weather gear and figure out how to keep warm. Luckily, our options for wide calf boots have increased dramatically over the last several years. One of my favorite places to shop is SimplyBe. They have reasonably priced boots, with an easy to follow sizing guide that is guaranteed to get everyone what they need for the Winter.
So what do you need to do to find your perfect fit in those spectacular wide calf boots? Well, first thing’s first – find your calf measurement! Take a measuring tape and wrap it around the largest part of your calf while standing up. Don’t hold the measuring tape too tight, it should not squeeze your flesh at all. Easy right? Next you will figure out your foot width. Place the measuring tape under your foot and measure around (the circumference) the widest part of your foot. Now that you know the width of your foot, take a look at the chart below and find where your shoe size (US) and your foot width meet.
When you find where your foot width and size meet, check out the letter at the bottom of the chart. That is your designated width. If you fall between a width size, size up! Now that you know what letter you are – let’s add in the calf width portion! Take a look at the size charts below and find your shoe size (ie: 9EEE). Now look at the calf widths listed below your shoe size and find the measurement that is closest to your own calf width (size up when needed). Look along the left hand column to see the name of the calf size you’ll need.
In my case I am a 9E with a 22″ calf, so I would wear a 9E Extra Curvy Plus boot. Easier than it seems, right??? I’ve worn SimplyBe wide calf boots for many years and their sizing system is more in depth than many other places and really offers plus size shoppers the best fit possible. Now you’re ready to shop and check out all of their amazing options!!! Here’s a few to start:

I know I am literally years late to the party -- but THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I thought I was just doomed to miss out on boots all together. This was so helpful! Two pairs of boots are on their way to my doorstep.
Thank you so much!

After years of not being able to find wide-calf boots, I bought some last year from Rose Petals that are fantastic - real leather (which can be hard to find in wider widths) and super comfortable. I would definitely recommend checking them out.
