It recently occurred to me that for the last two years I have posted articles listing some of the top knee-high boots for women such as myself who have very skinny calves, but haven’t really offered any recommendations for those women who have very wide calves.
So in this latest article I want to rectify that because I know that these women have just as much difficulty finding a stylish pair of boots that actually fit well.
The major problem is that most of the boots that are available online and in stores tend to have a calf opening of around 14-15 inches which is too wide for women with narrow calves, and too small for women with wider calves.
So listed below are some of the best knee-high boots for wide calves that are available to buy right now as we head into 2015, which includes a range of boots that have a boot opening of 16-18 inches, as well as a small selection of extra-wide calf boots that are more than 18 inches in circumference:

Extra Wide Calf Boots (18 inches +)
If you have very wide calves that are more than 18 inches in circumference, you do have a much more limited choice (as you have probably discovered yourself). However here is a selection of some of the top extra-wide knee-high boots that you might want to consider buying:

Some Final Thoughts
Remember that even if you do order online and subsequently find that your chosen boots are slightly too big or slightly too small, you can always return them for a full refund. So don’t be afraid to buy more than one pair (if your budget permits) until you find that one pair of boots that fits you absolutely perfectly.
You also have the option of taking them to a cobbler and asking them to stretch them for you if they are made from leather and are slightly too small, for example, because this is quite an easy job.
