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.
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.
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.
