14 Wide Calf Boots for Fall

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Fall is nearly upon us and it is almost time to put away our sandals and flip flops, trading them in for closed-toe shoes and stylish boots. Considering that no two women are exactly alike, finding just the right boot can be a daunting task especially if you have a wide calf. There are so many cute styles out and, while some may look irresistible, comfort is often a deal-breaker when it comes to choosing a boot that has the right fit. Plus, a half unzipped boot zipper is NOT a cute look (at least on me).

Luckily, there are several great places to shop for cute boots that will fit us ladies with wider calves. Here’s a roundup of the 14 cutest wide calf boots for fall that will provide style, comfort, and versatility as temperatures dip and the leaves begin to change.

ZapposTypeZTammyConvertible

You can shop the Type Z Tammy Convertible Wide Calf Boot from Zappos to keep your feet cozy for the cooler months. These wide calf boots for fall are made with a leather upper and cushioned leather footbed, this boot is a comfortable choice. For added comfort, the boot includes a full side-zip closure and back zipper for added style and space for a wider calf.

ZapposMizMoozBloom

The Miz Mooz Bloom Boot at Zappos is an exquisitely designed boot that includes elastic on the collar and a full side-zip. These wide calf boots for fall have a unique style that’s reminiscent of 19th century style women’s footwear.

MacysBellavitcamyIIwide

The Macy’s BellaVita Camy II Wide Calf Boot is a “must have” for fall and winter too. This elegant boot has a gorgeous design with a decorative zipper and patent leather embellishment. For added comfort, the boot includes a rounded toe, 2-1/2” heel, and stretchy elastic shaft for extra comfort.

MacysGbyGUESSHertle

Get ready to ride in Macy’s G by GUESS Women’s Hertle boot. These rustic wide calf boots for fall have a tall and wide shaft, making them an ideal option for women needing wide calf boots.

The style connoisseurs over at 6pm are working it with the Bandolino Carerina Wide Calf Boot. The boot offers plenty of comfort and versatility with a hidden gore panel for a comfortable fit. Designed with wider calfs in mind, the Carerina also includes a wraparound ankle strap and padded footbed. Additional o-ring accents provide added style to a classy boot.

6pmRomanticSolesArvaBoot

If you are looking for a more compact style, the Romantic Soles Arva Wide Calf Boot at 6pm is a great choice. This boot will go well with both long skirts and short dresses or pants and is designed with you in mind. The Arva design will fit a wide calf and includes working buckles and and hidden stretch panel.

I hopped on over to Wide Widths and found the Rose Petals Julia Extra Wide Calf Boot. With an extra high shaft and full size zipper, these wide calf riding boots offer a clean design that will look absolutely fabulous with fall florals, fitted jeans, and stylish slacks.

widewidthroshommersontanyaboot

Another nostalgic design that is beaming with sophistication is the Hommerson Tanya Extra Wide Calf Boot from Wide Widths.

Pair these stylish wide calf boots with a pair of fitted jeans and an oversized sweater for a fabulous fall look. The boot is built strong with low heel and wider shaft.

amazonFryeVeronicaSlouch

I found a simple style at Amazon with the Frye Veronica Slouch Wide Calf Boot. Adjustable straps and wide shaft make these not only great wide calf boots for fall but also a great selection for everyday style throughout the year.

amazonlifestrideXlbit2

The loveable LifeStride X-lbit 2 Wide Calf Boot from Amazon is the quintessential of clean, casual style. This boot includes a wide shaft, cushion insole, and elastic gore panel. Chic metal embellishments add a unique edge to these wide calf boots.

The search for wide calf boots for women is sure to welcome plenty of variety into your shoedrobe (you know, your wardrobe of shoes). While looking for the styles that offer the best fit, keep in mind that boots with back and side zippers are ideal options. Keep an eye out for boots that contain an elastic gore at the shaft and adjustable hardware; boot options often include wide calf, extra wide calf, and also super wide calf and are available in various heights.

Using these guidelines is a great way to ensure that are able to achieve the maximum level of comfort. With the great selection that is available, going from rough and tumble to chic and glam can be done with ease as we move into fall boot season.
