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.
Extended wide calf boots come in calf widths from:
- a 17″ calf on a size 6M boot to a 20″ calf for a size 13WW
- a 18″ calf on a size 6M boot to a 24″ calf for a size 13WW
Retailers for Extended Wide Calf Boots
Not all retailers that sell wide width boots sell wide calf boots. They may offer a size 8C boot; but, unless it is sold as a “wide calf” boot, the boot’s shaft is typically only about 15″ wide.

Their selection includes leather boots in prices from $200 to $300. Watch for their sales prices and their occasional site-wide discounts of up to 25%. They also have a fun selection of rain boots.

Can’t Find Extended Wide Calf Boots You Like?
You can buy a smaller calf boot and have the too-tight shaft enlarged. Have a shoemaker add a piece of elastic next to the zipper on the inner calf. This is a good option if you find a great pair of boots for a great price but they are just a little too snug in the calf.
