The best wide calf boots for women that are comfy and stylish

There's a gorgeous pair of wide fit boots for every occasion.

For those of us with wide calves, finding a pair boots that fit correctly can be a frustrating task. Countless times we've returned boots we've ordered online because they're far too narrow - if this sounds familiar, you're not alone. That's why we've put together the most stylish and comfortable wide calf boots for you to choose from, to make the task so much easier.

We would love to wear knee high boots without any problems, just like everyone else. But we'd just appreciate it if they didn't constrict our lower limbs... Or refuse to zip up.

From flat wide calf boots to heeled wide calf boots, there's a pair of boots for every occasion. And for those who'd like a bit more room? There are also extra wide calf boots on our list of fabulous footwear.

What are wide calf boots?

Essentially, wide calf boots are specially designed shoes for those with wider calves. According to a survey by shoe manufacturer Sargasso & Grey, a staggering 53 per cent of women needed a wider fitting shoe. That means that over half of the women who took part in the survey in the UK found that standard boots don't fit or are uncomfortable to wear.

While wide fit footwear gives more space around the width of the foot, this doesn't necessarily apply around the calves. Unlike wide fit shoes, not everywhere stocks wide calf boots.

Wide calf boots can be tricky to find if you're not sure where to look, but we've got a few suggestions to make shopping much more simpler.

Where is best to buy wide calf boots?

There are a number of brands that have their own section of wide and extra wide calf boots online and some that are worth mentioning are:
