Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I just love all the boots that are in style, but I have big calves and can't find boots to fit. Does anyone know where I can find boots for ladies with big calves?

The Avenue usually has boots for large calves....but they are usually wide too. You may be able to get a regular width online.

Good Luck!

Depends on HOW wide calf. I have enormous calves, they're almost as big as my thighs and even now at 193 lbs (I'm 5'8") I still can't even wear regular wide calf boots.

Measure your calves. For most regular wide calf boots, calf sizes range from 16" for a size 6M to 18 1/4" for a size 12W. If that's you, most of the suggestions you get should work just fine. If you're bigger, go here for extra wide calf or super wide calf boots:

Highest weight: 335 lbs, BMI 50.9
Pre-op weight: 319 lbs, BMI 48.5
Current range: 140-144, BMI 21.3 - 22

175+ lbs lost, maintaining since February 2012

It's better to be hated for who you are than loved for who you're not.

I have ALWAYS had this problem -- even as a 5'5", 135lb teenager. I just have some massive calves! (at their largest, mine are about 18" around.

I tried the boots at Lane Bryant and Avenue - - but the width of the boots themselves (not the shafts) was a problem.

I finally gave up and did a search via Amazon for wide-shaft boots and found some really cute boots. I decided to test out a pair of Lifestride boots (a synthetic, not leather boot) in a pretty cocoa color. I got them in and you cannot tell the difference between these $70 boots and the $300 leather pair I have in my closet. The shaft is slightly smaller in circumference than my calves, but they seem to fit perfectly.
