Wide Calf Thigh High Boots

Every year without fail, I get asked about one particular item in my wardrobe: my wide calf thigh high boots. I found them four years ago on a total whim when I was out shopping with my mom who ironically encouraged me to try them on. I wore them initially to a New Year's Eve party and I certainly wouldn't recommend breaking in a heel like this for the first time on a night like that. Let's just say, I spent a good chunk of my night scoping out available places to sit. 

I've worn these wide calf thigh high boots on my blog every year and one of the images of me in these boots is now one of the top search results for the word "feminist." I am not mad about that at all (even though that same image has been used for countless hateful memes).

If you're like me, winter brings more than cooler temps; it also brings the struggle to find a pair of boots that you can zip past your ankles. I've shed more than a few tears of the years trying to find wide calf boots that actually fit. But retailers are getting hip to our needs as wide calf babes and this season, there are so many good wide calf boot options that I wanted to share my favorite picks with you. 

When you're shopping online for wide calf boots, you need to know your calf measurement. The best way to do it is to get a sewing tape measure and measure your calf at its widest part. For reference, my calf is 19" which sizes me out of a few options. In addition to checking the calf circumference prior to buying, also make sure to look at the store's return policy. I recently was gifted a pair of awesome thigh high boots that I couldn't get past my ankles and I had to pay to send them back. Because of their size and weight, shipping boots can be costly so it's always a good idea to check the return policy.
