When you have slim legs shopping for tall boots can feel like a chore. You already know that most boot designers only make boots for ladies with “average” size calves. What can make things easier is shopping online at a reputable shoe source.
Why Fashionistas with Slim Legs Don’t Enjoy Boot Shopping at a Department Store
Going into a regular shoe store you’ll surely be met by an eager associate who gets paid a commission for each pair you buy. He may be knowledgeable when it comes to the shoes in the store or he may have just started working there two days ago. Either way it’s his job to convince you to buy shoes. Since his paycheck depends on you walking out of the store with a new pair of tall boots he’s probably going to attempt to push you into buying a pair whether or not it truly fits you. That’s one of the reasons today’s fashionistas with slim calves are doing all their shopping for knee high boots online.
Why Ladies With Small Calves are Opting for Online Shoe Store Shopping Instead
Not only is knowing your correct shoe size important, there’s other measurements you’ll need to know too. A good online shoe source will post important measurements for knee high boots. Boot manufacturers are responsible for passing on detailed information about their boots to give women an edge on finding the right size boots. They’ll of course list the available footbed sizes in a size chart and include large and narrow options when applicable. They will typically include other important measurements as well.
Different places along the shaft of the boot will also be posted on their site as the circumferences around the boot are crucial to how they’ll fit your skinny legs. The distance around the ankle, opening circumference and approximate calf circumference must all be the right size in order to fit your lower legs right. The calf circumference is always an estimation on the boot because the thickest part of fashionistas’ calves will vary from female to female. Most manufacturers will refer to the calf circumference as the distance around the boot three inches down from the top on knee high boots. Having all these shaft measurements provided for every shoe size can make online shopping an easy way to get your exact fit.
Most online boot stores are very conscientious about giving detailed measurements for the boots they sell. By helping their shoppers make informed decisions before buying they’ll get better reviews, repeat customers, and won’t have to be bothered with returns and restocking. This clearly saves both buyers and sellers time and money!
Just in Case…
If you’re reading this post then you probably are fully aware already of what a headache it is to find knee high boots that fit your fashion taste and skinny calves at a brick and mortar shop. Although shopping at an online store certainly gives you more style options and better measurement data, it’s still a good idea to check the return policy the online store must have somewhere on their site.
Things to Consider Include
-Will they cover shipping both ways in case they don’t work out?
-Will you be able to get your money back or just get a store credit if you need to make a return?
-What do the reviews from verified purchasers say? Do they fit them as described? Have any other ladies with slim calves posted pictures of them wearing the boots you’re interested in?
-How much time will they give you to look over the boots? Will you be at home when they are delivered?
Hopefully you won’t need to make a return due to fitting issues as long as you know your own measurements and take a little time to compare them with the boot measurements the online store lists. Still, there are other reasons why a boot might not be right for you and knowing their return policy is important!
