Finding the perfect pair of boots can be trickier than you may think, especially if you’re looking for a pair that lands just below, at, or above the knee. The difficult factor? Landing on a pair that fit perfectly over your calves—not too snug or too loose, but just right. If you have wider calves, you may think that a pair of knee-high boots that you can actually wear doesn’t exist, but that’s where you’re wrong. They do—it just takes a bit more digging to find them, and the search starts with figuring out which boot brands actually offer wide-calf styles.
If you’re shopping for a pair online, one great way to learn about the fit is to read through customer reviews, many of which speak to the fit and whether or not they work well with wide or narrow calves. As you don’t have all the time in the world, we did our due diligence, looking solely for styles that shoppers said had a “wide fit” or a “large circumference.” We’ve narrowed in and are focusing on the best brands that offer wide-calf styles that are on-trend, yet comfortable to wear.
Read on to see and shop five brands with the best boots for wide calves, with product selections from each that are customer-approved. And don’t worry—we’ve included the best reviews for proof.
