1. Riding Boot
The riding boot trend is still going strong. They are often too narrow for real life legs. No more, with the LifeStride X-Ibit, which fits up to an 18″ wide calf with elastic at the back for extra comfort. The boot has a fabulous buckle detail that come in silver in the black and brass for brown with tan accents. The 1.5″ heel adds flattering lift that still lets you walk all day long.
This tall riding boot will hit taller ladies an inch or two below the knee, the perfect height to wear with skirts and dresses that hit just above or below the knee.
2. Knee Riding Boot
If you want nothing shorter than a knee high boot, check out the Naturalizer Jersey Wide Shaft. The real leather boots have a 16 3/4″ circumference plus elastic and zipper for easy on and off. The toe is rounded and buckle straps at ankle and calf add a touch of metallic detail.
You get all the comfort of the Naturalizer brand in a gorgeous riding boot. For wider feet, be sure to order the W width.
3. Slouchy Boot
If you’re looking for a cozy everyday boot, look no further. The rsvp Wynona has tons of style but you’ll feel like you’re in slippers. These boots fit every size calf and are perfect worn with leggings, skinny jeans, and skirts. The synthetic suede is available in 4 colors – black, grey, dark brown, and lighter chestnut.
The Frye company has been making boots since 1863. They are stylish, comfortable, and last forever. Many Zappos reviews have reported that Frye boots labeled as wide calf just aren’t. Until the Jane. The classic boot has a touch of Western influence but the clean lines will make this an everyday choice for years to come.
The external circumference is 17″ so with all the leather, seams, and whatever you’re wearing underneath will fit calves up to 16 1/2″. Choose from black, rich dark brown, and a warm redwood tones.
5. Something Different
If you’re a fan of unique shoes, the Miz Mooz Bloom is for you. With bright colors and lots of buttons, this shoe makes any outfit special. Just add a statement necklace on top and you can wear all black in any combination – leggings with a long sweater, jeans and a t-shirt, or a dress!
The 16″ circumference shoe also has a wood-covered wedge heel just over an inch high gives flattering height without sacrificing comfort.
For me, the most comfortable heels are boots. The David Tate Oregon gives you some height with a 3″ stacked heel that elongates the leg and works for casual and formal occasions. Another slouchy boot that comes in brown and black, this boot fits everyone. Satisfied customers report that this boot fits up to a 20″ calf plus room to spare for jeans or thick leggings. Give them a go! If they don’t fit, thank goodness for Zappos easy return policy.
