Shopping for a new pair of boots should be a simple enough task – but when you’re shopping for wide calf boots that actually comfortable, that’s not always the case. In the past, much of the high street offered only shelf after shelf of slimline boots without any give or stretch, leading to a fruitless, frustrating experience – but the tides are slowly turning.
Not only are slouchy, wide fit boots a big trend this season, meaning roomier styles are finally taking up the space they deserve, more and more retailers are turning their attentions to making boots with wide calf cuts as standard, opening up a whole new world of footwear possibilities. Even Hunter now makes its cult wellies in a wide fit, and brands like DuoBoots will custom make your new pair so that they fit your measurements exactly.
If you’ve struggled with finding boots in the past, give one of the wider styles below a try, and you might just be pleasantly surprised. Once you’ve found your perfect pair, layer them over denim, slide them on under your favourite midi dress or smarten them up with a blazer, and you’ll never have an autumn/winter style dilemma again…
