Where can I find boots that will fit my cute but large calves? – Connie

calf boot

This is probably the question I get asked the most. I am fortunate, thanks to my father’s Mickey Mouse legs, not to have this issue but I have done some research throughout the years so I could correctly answer the question.

The trends this season work to your favor. The boots are super slouchy and won’t hug your leg. These scrunch boots from Victoria’s Secret- currently on sale- are great because they are relaxed and roomy. There are also a lot of lace-up boots out there that will offer more room for your calves. Love these 3 from: Sam Edelman, Nine West (also on sale!) and Cole Haan.  Boots with elastic at the calf are always helpful, like these daniblack boots. And of course you can always just embrace the bootie (you know I am a fan) and not worry about your calves at all!

Here are my top places to find extended calf boots:

J.Crew: as if we needed another reason to love this store (if you are a regular visitor to our fashion posts you will notice how frequently we mention them- we are obsessed!) Almost all of their high boots comes in an extended calf option.

Zappos.com: the best shoe shopping website in my opinion, has 558 options. Just search for “wide calf” and you can start shopping!

Naturalizer: also is a great resource. Found this classic style on Piperlime.
