I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Heather requested a few picks for affordable wide-calf boots, so here we go:

Jessica London Rachel Sueded Scrunch Boots – was $124.99, now $59.99

This book features a clean, classic shape, walkable 2.75″ heel, and graceful almond toe. The upper is man-made stretch suede, and the shaft will fit from 17″ calves up to 20″ when stretched. Available in black, brown, and bright red (woo!) in US sizes 6.5 – 9.5.

RSVP Kent – was $129, now $38.70

If that bold red puts you off, never fear! These badass boots come in black and brown as well. They boast a 3″ heel, sassy buckle detail, and calf circumference of 19.5″ Available in US sizes 6 – 12 (sold out in size 11). A few color combinations are also available in W and WW widths!

Naturalizer Arness Wide Shaft Riding Boot – was $179, now $99.95 – $178.99

Obviously, this is the most expensive pick of the bunch. But this pair is real leather and made by a company that prides itself on quality and comfort. The product info says this calf is 16.5″ wide, but user reviews say it can stretch to fit up to 19″ and with that elastic panel, I’m thinking it’ll have some serious give. Available in sizes US 4 -12 including some wide footbed sizes. Comes in black and dark brown.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for affordable wide-calf boots:

  1. Widewidths.com – Stock is often patchy, but this site specializes in boots with wide shafts
  2. Amazon – Over 400 listings at a variety of price points. Amazon carries reliable brands like Naturalizer, LifeStride, and Ros Hommerson.
  3. Avenue – Most options are faux leather, but they’re cute and affordable.
  4. DUO – Throwing this one in because it’s a reader fave, though much pricier than these other sources.

    For wide-calf boots, I keep going for the ones that lace all the way up. As long as you can find laces long enough, you get to choose how they fit you. I have a half dozen pairs of knee-high Doc Martens that I absolutely love, not all of which look completely punk rock or anything, and you can usually find them for cheap, lightly used on ebay.

      I keep forgetting Doc Martins, I need some flat wear with everything boots…

    I would love to know where one can buy bright colored footwear that isn’t flip flops or sandals. Casual or dress. You have the coolest colection and I can never find any. Bright yellow, pink, green, fushia. I would so appreciate some tips.

    I recently discovered Fitzwell Boots- they come in wide and extra-wide widths. I just snagged a pair and am waiting for cool enough weather to try them out!

    Does anyone have any suggestions for wide-calf, but not wide width boots (that don’t cost a small fortune)? I have small (size 6 1/2), relatively narrow feet, but substantial calves. Boots that fit my feet rarely fit around my calves, and when I do find a pair that fit my legs, my feet slide all over the place!

    If you get on Avenue’s mailing list, there are frequent coupons. I’ve picked up boots for under $50 that way – unfortunately faux leather, but they do fit the calves.

    I have a pair of boots from Duo. Frankly, I was disappointed given the price. They were indeed wide calf, but not proportionally adjusted, so were much too narrow at the ankle. Think mutton-sleeve. Also soles were a hard rubber, therefore providing no traction.

    @Victoria – many of the styles at widewidths.com do come in regular medium width insole. Sizing for at least Looks like a decent number of options that start at size 6. (when I first heard of them, I assumed they meant wide feet rather than calves, but they carry all combos)

    Lane Bryant also has a decent selection of wide calf boots. They are on the cheaper end of the spectrum, and they actually carry them in stores so you can try them on.

    @Barb Thanks for the lead!
