One of the most commonly asked questions by our customers is ‘what boots would you recommend for wider calves?’. Not knowing if a boot is going to fit your calf does make it a little trickier to shop for cute knee-high styles online in autumn and winter. So, we wanted to take the guesswork out of it.
The secret is to go for a pair that either features elastic panels in the cuffs or where the cuffs are made from stretchy materials. The bad news is that there’s no real way to tell whether a knee-high boot is going to be suitable for your calves just by looking at a photo online. Add to it the fact that the diameter of the cuff will differ based on size (the diameter of a 36 is different to that of a 39), making it hard for our team to list that information on the product pages.
The good news, on the other hand, is that we have a fabulous customer support team that’s always ready to help you figure out the perfect fit (call, email or DM us with your questions!). But we’ve done something even better - we’ve gone ahead and put together this guide featuring the 5 styles best suited to a range of calf sizes. They will all give to a different degree but are all guaranteed to fit a range of different sizes and to accommodate wider calves.
This pair of knee-length boots is perfect for two reasons - it features a looser-style cuff which also boasts a small, hidden elasticated panel next to the zip.
These casual black boots feature a stretchy panel on the back of the cuff which is perfect for a range of calf sizes.
Just like the Kopens, these boots also feature a stretchy panel on the back for flexibility and comfort.
