Tall Boots You Can Wear If You Have Wide Calves

Whether they're Chelseas or Doc Martens, boots during autumn and winter are a necessity. Not only do they go with practically any outfit, but they elevate them as well; adding more to the look than a pair of sneakers or sandals ever could.

Knee-high boots have been a classic piece for years. The chic style remains a staple in many closets thanks to their versatility and timelessness. The winter wardrobe essential can be adapted to many styles, from Ariana Grande's oversized sweater and thigh highs combo, to Bella Hadid channeling cowgirl chic in cowboy boots and a denim midi skirt.

While tall boots belong in everyone's wardrobe, people with wide calves often have trouble finding boots that will fit their legs properly. Unlike ankle boots that don't always have to take wider legs into account, tall boots that don't stretch or are very skinny don't have the same universal sizing as their shorter counterparts. Thankfully, there are brands that cater to people who need boots with a wider fit through the leg.
