One thing that many knee and thigh-high boots don’t account for is calf size. Although wide-calf boots can be hard to come by, they’re not impossible to find.

When creating boots, many brands don’t consider the circumference of the calf. And sometimes the ones that do, don’t always carry the most inclusive shoe sizes. Ultimately, those with larger calves looking for cute footwear are often unable to wear many knee-high styles.

Luckily, there are certain plus-size-friendly retailers and even specific shoe retailers that specialize in wide-calf boots. Just because your calves may be slightly larger doesn’t mean you have to settle on something less stylish. When it comes to wide-calf or even wide-width boots, you can find options that fit your personal style.

Journee Collection is one brand that carries a decent selection of wide-calf boots. These Kyllie extra wide calf boots feature a 17-inch calf circumference. Plus, they come in several different suede shades.

Wide Width’s entire collection is dedicated to wide-calf boots. The brand carries boots with calf sizes up to 22 inches.

Additionally, you can seek out brands like Torrid that carry size-inclusive options with over-the-knee styles like these black faux suede boots that are currently 35 percent off.

And don’t be surprised to find wide-calf boots in stores where you least expect them. Nordstrom Rack is currently selling these Chooka Rain Boots that have a circumference to fit calves 16 1/2 to 18 inches wide. 

There are more wide-calf boots than you realize. Check out some of these picks to end your search.
