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. The good news is that the demand for wide calf boots is growing, and more options are available each year, some even under $40!

Whether you’re on the hunt for high-end leather boots designed to last a lifetime or a trendy party boot that’ll be your go-to for a season, there’s a wide calf boot out there for everyone!

Why You Should Shop for Wide Calf Boots Early: With the surging demand for plus-size boots in recent years, it’s essential to start your fall boot shopping early in the season. Waiting for a boot to go on sale can be heart-wrenching, especially when it’s sold out a week later.

Measuring for the Perfect Fit: Before you buy, remember that it’s 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). Knowing this measurement will simplify your boot buying journey.

I realize I’m writing this 7 years after the fact which means 1 of 2 things: 1. There are more and more women out there than we think who, like me, got bigger and thought “oh no! I can’t wear boots over my ankle now!” and just gave up and/or 2. You are one hell of a Google SEO queen because this came up on the first page, right after the obvi ads! Tbh, I still don’t know what to do about my legs/feet. I have gained weight so I get the calf thing but I also have edema in my feet and ankles (possibly whole body?) so my usual size 7 doesn’t fit so I just bought a size 8 of docs and they’re too long. Another pair I went with 7.5 wide that had laces that wouldn’t even fit in my feet and all the lace holes at the same time. And were still too long. I really don’t want to wear uggs or larry david shoes (what I call sneakers with no laces or velcro or anything in the middle) the rest of my life. Even most flip flops won’t get over the hump in the middle of my foot. And, yes, I sleep in compression socks with my feet above my heart. I told my bf recently to start jerry-rigging one of those leg lifts for people with broken legs for me so I can sit and sleep with my legs way above my head and then they can be cute when I go out…. I know it sounds like I have more serious things to worry about than shoes but it’s not from diabetes, I’ve had an ultra sound of my veins, sodium checked, etc and there’s no real reason they can see why my feet get to the point of splitting open from just hanging out. But now I know what boots will fit my calves! I’ll get em in 7s.

Can you help with bras? I am between a b and c cup. However I am 5xl wide. I can only find jms bras. I want my boobs to look like I am wearing the wonder bra. Stays in the side dig into my arm pits, synthetic material makes my tits itch. And underwires are too long. I have even went to a breadt cancer bra store

Why in the world won't the plus size stores sell GENUINE leather boots????!!! Their boots fit me great, but I have to replace them almost every year because pleather doesn't last. I would rather pay more for a pair of leather boots thay will last, but I can't find any anywhere that will fit my 18" calves. Any ideas? And when I say I would pay more, I don't mean I'm willing to sell my kidney. LOL

Looking for cowgirl boots and none of these sites seem to carry them. Any suggestions would be great. Need an extremely wide boot, never found anything higher than ankle boots that fit but now I am in a wedding and the Bride wants tall cowgirl boots...

@Dawn, which ones did you buy?

@Laura, I'm sure I'm too late, but Laredo makes several wide pairs of actual cowboy (ladies) boots that are wide as hell in their normal width and then offer a wider version as well. My calves are 19 inches, and my foot is wide, but not super wide and I very comfortably wear the Med width. They're real leather, very comfortable, and I have an everyday pair and I bought a pair for my own wedding.
