HOW TO MEASURE YOUR CALF?
Most of our boots have a 14" - 15"
high shaft and the heights are listed in all of their descriptions. This
refers to the height of the boot from the base of your bare foot NOT
including any heels. Using a tape measure, please measure the
circumference of your calf 14" - 15" up from the base of your foot to
find your correct calf size. Please make sure to measure your calf
exactly before you order since there are many different boots with
larger or smaller calf sizes to choose from.
For those of you who are petite - 5'3" and under - please measure
the circumference of your calf at its widest point instead of at 14"
since the boot shaft will fall at a higher point on your calf than on
someone who is taller.
Every boot already comes manufactured with its own specific calf size
for each foot/shoe size so please make sure to measure your calf
exactly before you order. As a result, you cannot order a boot with a
different calf size than the one shown for that particular style.
Since we have a very extensive selection of wide and extra wide calf
boots, you can be sure to find a style that will come as close to your
calf measurements as possible.
If, after measuring your calf, you find that your size falls between two
different categories (e.g., Extra Wide Calf or Super Wide Calf), you
have two options: you can order the smaller calf style if you need only
1-2” more in size and then have them stretched on a boot stretcher OR
you can order the next category and have them taken in at the seam by a
shoemaker. Either of these choices will customize the boot to your
specific calf measurements.
If your calf is larger than any of the ones shown on our site
there are no boots AT ALL made anywhere with wider calves than we carry
unless they are custom made for you. We have the majority of our boots
specially made for us with an elastic gore near the zippers and you can
take them to a shoemaker to have them altered. A shoemaker can make the
elastic gores larger or even add more leather to the seams. Since our
boots already have the widest calf size on the market to begin with, you
don't need to add 6-7 inches of extra leather to a 16" calf boot. This
is a very simple and inexpensive procedure and our customers have been
doing this for many years. The only other option for you would be to
have boots custom made and that is extremely expensive (at least $700).
