Every single year when I am so over the heat and I can start to sense a hint of fall in the air, I start to obsess over boots. My first ever blog post that I wrote was about wide calf boots, and here we are a year later. This is something that is very important to me. I feel like so many retailers have gotten on board with extended sizes, but where are the boot manufacturers? I see so many fall outfits on Pinterest of cute floral dresses with tall boots and I want to recreate them, but every year its the same thing. My large, no giant calves prevent me from wearing tall boots.
As someone who loves fashion, I love boots. They are one of the things I love most about fashion. Nothing can make me swoon more (except a good handbag) than a beautiful pair of tall boots. But, most of the time, actually 99.9999999% of the time, I cant wear the beautiful boots. My calves measure at about 17.5 inches. I think that is a similar measurement to most NFL kickers, but lucky for them, they probably don’t care as much about boots.
Some retailers carry “wide calf boots” but they are either terribly ugly or not actually wide calf. A lot of the wide calf options I see are actually only about 15 inches in circumference. Other boots I find that actually are wide calf are usually always flat, black riding boots. If that is what you are on the market for then great, but I want something totally different!
Well, I know the suspense is killing you so let’s get to the point! I love these wide calf boots by Naturalizer! They are the exact style I was looking for and they look adorable with dresses and jeans. I ordered these from Amazon with absolutely no expectation that they would actually fit. When I got them in, I unpacked them and was surprised to see how much I really liked them! I was still hesitant to try them on from so many times of boots not fitting. However, I went to slip them on, and like magic they fit! They easily slid right on with jeans and even a little room to spare! I was so excited!!
These boots are by Naturalizer so I trust the quality. I have worn them around shopping all day and they are very comfortable! I feel confident wearing them and do not feel like I am sacrificing style at all! If you have wide calves and struggle with boots fitting, then I am sure you know the struggle! I had a friend who messaged me about these boots after I posted them on Instagram. She was unsure because she had purchased some boots before from a blogger who claimed they were wide calf boots. My friend received the boots and couldn’t pull them on at all. She was so disheartened that she gave up looking for tall boots. Enter Naturalizer! She ordered these and loved them too! I am 5’2 and these are not too tall. They are the perfect neutral grayish-taupe color and are made of a soft faux suede material. I have had so much fun styling these boots and cant wait to wear them all Fall!
