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)….
Comfortview on Amazon
So many options!!! Seriously, Comfortview has a wild amount of different styles of wide calf shoes. I am in love with the cream colored Larke boot this season!

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?
Sunday 3rd of January 2021
@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.
