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.
Wide width shoe sizing and boot sizing can be complicated. It can be tough to know the difference between a “wide” width, a “C” width and a “B/C” width shoe, let alone a “DD” or a “2E”. And, once you figure out your shoe size, it can be difficult to find a retailer that carries shoes in your size. A few tips can help you find the styles, size and width you need.
