If you have always had big and wide calves or if after some physical changes (we are not pieces of wood, our body can change over the course of our entire life and it is perfectly normal when this happens) you have found yourself facing with the frustration of not finding a pair of boots for chunky calves - prominent calves, wide calves, bulky calves, however you want to define them we know how difficult it can be to find boots that fit them - this article will help you understand that the problem is not you you. In addition to solving your problem, of course.
Let's make a premise, the average size of the standard calf girth for a women's boot is about 36-37 cm for a 37 foot size. This means that only as the number of foot increases, the circumference of the shaft will increase, and even just by a very small amount. And what happens then when you have a calf size that is greater than that of the standard you can find in the whole the market?
It’s simple, althought very bad, the boots will not fit and you have to say goodbye to the dream of finally spending 3 out of 4 seasons with boots that will match your looks.
