Nothing looks so classically cold-weather chic than a tall boot. Something about the sleek style instantly polishes an outfit, and with so many different designs floating around in footwear, you can find a trend for every taste.
However, the average boot calf circumference clocks in around 14 inches, while the average American woman fits into boots sized 14 inches and up — which means it can be beyond challenging to find a fashionable boot that actually fits. And it's not just plus size shoppers that suffer; women of all shapes and sizes may find their curvier calves struggling with the slimmer-cut styles on shelves.
One clever entrepreneur invented the Bootband, a zip-in panel that instantly widens any boot with a zipper closure. But if you're looking for something more ready-made, we've rounded up a bevy of beautiful styles, from classic English riding boots and sleek stilettos to sparkling stunners and brightly colored choices, all with a calf circumference of 16 inches or more.
