Large Size, Wide-Width & Wide-Calf Boot Report

Plus-size women often wear larger shoe sizes, have wider feet, or big calves.  Some styles are appropriate for fall and spring, while others are meant specifically for snowy winter weather.  Water resistant treatments are applied to leather in some styles, in addition to more weatherproof styles in synthetic materials.

Wide-calf boots are some of the most difficult things to find off-line, yet many women need a plus-size calf to go with their full-figured bodies. Athletic women also tend to have muscular calves that require larger boots.  Sizes larger than 10 are rare.

The term "wide-calf" or "wide-shaft" is often used for tall boots that measure larger than 15 inches, but savvy retailers will indicate the actual measurements because some come as large as 22 inches.  It's important that you know your own measurements before ordering a pair of boots.

Some wide-width boots have wider calf measurements, and others do not, so make sure to look for that information while shopping also. Finally, many wide-calf boot styles have progressively larger calf measurements as the foot size increases. 

Lace up boots can give extra ankle and calf circumference which can work well for those who are larger than average, but not overly so.  Boots with strategically placed gores can also adjust size for larger calves.  A few styles are sometimes available with adjustable gussets fastened with buckles for calf customization.

Women with wide feet also often have thicker ankles.  Look for lace up and gored short boot styles if this is a fit issue for you. Wide-width boots and booties, and those in sizes larger than 10, are also extremely difficult to find off line.  Fortunately the internet provides access to a broader range of sizes than most brick-and-mortars.

Internet Shopping Resources for Wide-Width & Plus-Size Boots and Booties

Zappos remains one of the best retailers on the internet for shoes and boots, partially because not only do they have an especially deep and diverse inventory, but also because product descriptions include measurements and fit guides and consumer reviews further refine the process.

Other especially good resources for wide-widths, especially, but also for wide-calf styles include Footsmart and Nordstrom.  Footsmart specializes in foot health and has an especially good selection of wide and extra wide widths, generally, from a wide variety of well-known, quality brands.   Nordstrom began life as a hard-to-fit shoe specialist and, although they are now an apparel giant, have remained true to their original roots.  Both are likely to not only have fashion boots, but also more practical styles for rain and snow.

Plus specialty retailers will often carry a small selection of plus shaft boots and wider width booties in the fall and winter seasons.  Often more budget friendly and of synthetic materials, rather than leather, these can be a good choice for trendy fashionistas and those devoted to vegan leather.  Avenue with their Cloudwalker line is the most reliable source with sizes up to 13WW.  Torrid only offers wide-widths and has the trendiest looks with the widest calf measurements.  It isn't unusual for hard-to-find styles such as plus-size over-the-knee boots to turn up here.  Lane Bryant will often offer a selection of modern classic styles.

Other less well-known sources can include Long Tall Sally which specializes in women's tall clothing, QVC which does especially well with winter proof styles and wider widths, and some of the large internet shoe specialty retailers including Shoe Buy and Shoes.com.

Certain shoe brands make collections of wider calved boots that are available from multiple retailers.  Look especially for David Tate, Naturalizer, and Blondo.

Some of the cataloguers have the most unusual selection ranging from artsy bohemian hand painted leathers and textile insets to trendy, urban styles with dramatic flair.   Sahalie and North Style are two of the best from more eclectic options, while Ashro is worth a stop for trendiery curvy fashionistas.  Those looking for rugged, outdoor hiking boot styles and cowboy boots with style can have good luck at Sierra Trading Post.
