How To/Where To Shop For Wide Calf Boots

 How to shop for wide calf boots:
  • Measure the widest part of the calf. (Measure both legs to help get an accurate size.)
  • Also, note whether or not you have wide width feet too. 
  • When shopping, always be aware of the different between wide width and wide calf. Wide width refers to the foot, and wide calf refers to the leg.
  • When checking websites ALWAYS look for size measurement descriptions or size charts to help determine if the boot will fit you.
  • Before going to the store, check online to see what wide calf boots they have available, and what sizes they fit. This can save some frustration if you know ahead of time what will fit and what won't.
 OR Try these ideas:
  • Some sites sell extra wide and super wide calf boots.
  • If you still have no luck, you may want to try getting a custom made pair of boots to fit you perfectly. These may be pricier, but they are sure to fit like glove.
  • A more affordable option for custom made boots may be purchasing a pair of boots that you like and having extra panels or elastic/stretchy panels sewn into the boot so that it will fit

  1. Hi Style Supreme,
    Women have the same problem in Europe and therfore we have developed a "confection" sizing system, covering now 9 widths, ranging from XS up to 6XW (24"!). For your sizing problem we have developed the "JJ Footwear Calf width Calculator". An easy tool to determine your calfwidth to find your perfect fitting boot. Check it out and give me your feedback. We are preparing a launch in the US in 2012... What do you think... you like our styles? Go to

  2. Hi Style Supreme...
    I love your blog... In Europe (I'm from the Netherlands) women have the same problem. We have a large selection available behind a 9 widths fitting system, ranging from XS up to 6XW(24"!), which is more than I could find on online sites in the US. We're planning a launch to the US this year but I would like to have your reaction to our styles and lines. Pls check our website and give me your feedback, highly appreciated!
    Warm regards from a rainy Holland! Carl
