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 everyone!

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.

Here we go, get those adorable feetsies ready (pictures click-through to product unless otherwise specified)….


So many options!!! Seriously, Simplybe has a wild amount of different styles of wide calf shoes. Their fit guide is a little big confusing, but we’ve created a sizing and shopping guide here! Sizes go from 6 to 12, and prices start around $30.

Lane Bryant

This old school classic plus-size retailer keeps things fresh with current trends in easy-to-wear designs, and their selection of wide calf boots is no different. Whether you’re looking for leopard print booties or a classic black knee-high, you won’t be disappointed! Prices start at $30 with sizes ranging from 7 to 12 and boots with 21″ calves.


The go-to place for plus size babes everywhere, it’s no surprise that they have a great selection of wide calf boots! Recently, they have extended their size range and some boots now go to a 21″ calf!

Jileon on Amazon

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...

@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.

torrid has a couple pairs! So does

Sighhh! These options are so amazing! Thanks for sharing them! BUT none of these offer the unique boots I'm looking for... A KID's size 3 Wide Calf option. My sister has Down's Syndrome and her shoe size is smaller so she can't shop in Women's. But she is a 22 year old adult with wide plus size calves. Winter boots never fit very well, and long, warm boots that don't get stuck at the calves are impossible to find. Any suggestions!?

@Sumbul, my sis has DS as well and wears a kids 2-3, I've ran into this before too, from the research I've done a woman's 5 is pretty similar to a 3.5 in kids...maybe try that!?! (I was able to get her a sz5 for a wedding a few years back and they weren't too big) Good luck!

ohhhhh I've been thinking of doing a post about "tween" fashion so I've been doing a lot of research about "girls" sizes but haven't come across any wide calf boots for little feet :( I will absolutely keep my eye out though and will let you know if I find anything!

Hi! I was wondering the calf circumference Avenue goes up to? I’ve looked online, messaged their customer support about it, everything! Hoping you can help. Thanks!

I’d do anything for a fall pair of knee high boots but I’ve got 25” calves and apparently that’s otherworldly in the show world so...I guess I’m out of luck. Thanks for narrowing my choices down for me though so I didn’t spend a million hours hunting for something that simply doesn’t exist.
