Looking for extended wide calf boots? Most wide calf boots are only about an inch larger than other boots, fitting calf widths of 16″ for a size 6M boot. Widths on larger-sized boots (such as a 12W) may be up to 18″ wide. But, if your calf measures over 17″ you need extended wide calf boots.
You can find wide calf boots under $50; However, finding cheap wide calf boots in leather can be difficult unless the boot price is deeply discounted.
You will have a better chance of finding lower cost, high quality boots if you look for man-made materials. Boots under $50 that advertise “leather” may not be well-made and may only have a small amount of leather, such as leather trim. A $50 boot is a good investment if it is made from well-structured, man-made materials which will make it weather and water repellent.
The key to a well-fitting boot is knowing the widths of wide calf boots. Typically a woman’s boot is designed to fit a calf of 14″-15″ even if the foot of the boot is a wide width (such as a 12W). If your calf is larger than 15″, you will need to purchase wide calf boots.
