Lumiani Laila Extra Wide CalfAriel is letting me pinch-hit in shoe posts this week since I've been knee-deep in boots… and other puns. I've been looking at tall boots for wider calves! If you're looking for kicky wedding boots but your athletic or plus-size calves make it hard to find boots that fit well, I can relate.

The good news is that there are plus size boots with calf fits of about 17"/43 cm to 21"/53 cm, depending on your shoe size. And if you don't fall within those sizes, there are custom-fit options, too. Despair no more and check out these wide calf riding styles, glam heels, studded leather, and even some wet weather Wellies.

  1. Thank you for this post! I can be a size 2 or a size 20 and my calves always seem to fall within the wide range. Time to go shopping 🙂

  2. It just goes to show how many of us need made to measure as we are not all the average size! In fact, in reality who is? It was for this very reason I chose made to measure maternity wear. I'll be looking at these boots because I'm a sucker for a long boot!

  3. I've had excellent luck with my doc martens. I have the 14 eye boots and the laces allow me to get the perfect custom fit! I want to get 20 eye boots one day…

  4. Wish there were some more affordable versions (I wouldn't have even clicked on the studded boots if i knew they were Frye, since that's way out of my price range) but i guess it's more of an investment piece.

  5. Are the links only broken for me? I've always sworn to wear awesome boots to my wedding, but looking at most web pages just makes me depressed. A couple of these are really cute!

  6. How did I miss this post?? My big calves caused a blister from a pair of improperly fitted boots once that turned into cellulitis and landed me in the hospital. I'll be damned if that happens to me again!
