Wide Calf Boot Fit Tips:

  • Not all wide calf boots are ALSO wide width. Make sure you check the brand and the description to make ensure a proper fit.
  • Speaking of fit- MEASURE YOUR CALVES! It is imperative that you measure or get them measured! Take a tape measurer and measure around the fuller parts of your calves! Some brands fit on the calf size and knowing this will help you navigate the field!
  • If you are looking for a great pair to last you all year and then some, you may want to check fabrication and quality of boot. I treat my boot purchases as investments, because I do not have the time or the patience shopping for boots that fit my calves! LOL
  • If you are trying to gauge where the wide calf boot will hit on your calf, the shaft height is what you want to look for and measure from your heel up.

Over the Knee Extra Wide Calf Boots

Whether with skirts or with tucked into jeans, I love wearing boots in the fall and into the winter. It can be a challenge to find boots that fit my calves. Most wide calf boots usually don’t fit my 18 inch circumference calves. I know I can’t be alone in that struggle so I’m bringing you this list of plus size EXTRA wide calf boots!

One thing I’ve learned from years of buying wide calf boots is that “wide calf” can mean something totally different depending on the brand. During this search for extra wide calf boots, I found a pair labeled wide calf that only worked for up to a 12-inch circumference. That information was buried in the fine print. But before you go running to the nearest mall trying to find boots in person instead, let me tell you that the best extra wide calf boot options with the biggest size range are online only.

First things first. When you are shopping online for wide calf boots, you need to know your calf circumference measurement. You can obtain this measurement by wrapping a fabric tape measure around the widest part of your calf. Do this for both calves because one may be slightly larger than the other. If you want plus size thigh high boots, you will need to measure your thigh above the knee. A stretch panel in the back is a good way to ensure that you have a little wiggle room with the sizing so keep an eye out for that too.

I took a risk on these extra wide calf boots because there was no calf measurement information on Amazon where I originally bought them. I found on the retailer’s site that they fit up to a 20 inch circumference calf and as I said, mine are 18 inches. As you can see, I have a good amount of room at the top of these. There’s a stretch panel in the back but these have space even without touching that. I would recommend that these boots work for 22 inch circumference calves and possibly up to a 24 inch circumference just based on the extra room I have.

Below you will find more options with the calf circumference measurement (if available) and where you can find it! This post contains some affiliate links and I’ll earn a small commission if you shop through them. This is one of the ways I can continue to bring you amazing content!
