Knee-High Boots for Wide Calves

A Soft and Sparkly Makeup Look

The selection for wide calf boots has certainly improved over the years, but it’s still smaller than what is available for “standard” calves. And no matter what size I’m wearing, I always need to have a wide calf boot.

I’ve had a lot of success with Sam Edelman boots, as they make great wide calf options, but recently I got a pair of Rothy’s Lug Sole Knee High Boots and fell in love.

My mom bought these first and told me about them, and I was resistant right out of the gate. They weren’t wide calf boots, so I didn’t even give them a single thought. She convinced me that they were stretchy, and I tried them on at her house. As it turns out, she was right! They were extremely stretchy in the shaft, so they were an option for me!

Rothy’s recommended ordering a size down as they run big, which I would agree with. I went down a half size and feel that is a better fit. If you love to wear thick socks, though, I would take your regular size.

I’m so pleased to have a nice chocolate brown pair of boots that works with my athletic calves, and I love their casual style that ensures they go with leggings or a dressier outfit!

If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly wide calf boot, check out DSW! I also have these wide calf boots from a few years ago that I love, and they are about $160.00!
