Finding the perfect fitting boot can be a serious struggle and a lifelong challenge. Why is this the case? Because few women have what they consider to be the perfect body. To the rest of the world, they can look like goddesses. But women tend to notice each simple flaw, every imperfection in themselves. These often affect the calves, which can be long, short, narrow, wide, or settle somewhere between widths depending on the day.
Tall Boots for Women With Wide Calves
Narrow calf boots fit below 13 3/4 inch calf circumference and wide calf boots generally work well for women with 15 1/2 inch or larger boot opening needs. So the sweet spot – that “average” size all women want to fit within – allows less than 2 inches of freedom from either width need. It’s easier to win the lottery than to hit that perfect size. But the good news is that you don’t have to be boringly normal to find your sizzling seasonal boot. The following 16 – 17 inch wide calf boots are great options for those who are above average and proud to be so!

There is a lovely autumnal feel to the Franco Sarto Women’s ‘Perk’ boots with their rich colors – a warm acorn and deep Oxford brown as well as the black – and while the simple additions of the buckles add a sense of style to the design, they look like the sort of boots that you can have a good walk in the park in, with the strong 1” heel and the stability of the synthetic sole.
They have been described as a “sleek and sexy mid rise boot” but while this initially leads to the belief that they will be for skinny legs only, there are some wide calves sizes available – 16 and 17 inches – and an inside zip for an easier fit.
