Fall is quickly approaching, which means it's almost time to start breaking out the sweaters, cardigans and — most excitingly — boots! For plus-size women who tend to have wider calves, finding cute, stylish and affordable wide-calf boots can be pretty difficult. Luckily, someone out there has been listening to our feedback, and there are tons of affordable options out there.
We hunted down a few affordable pairs of trendy and cute boots for wide calves that will work with pretty much any outfit this fall.
Best wide-calf boots for women

3. A New Day Vicki Mid-Calf Rubber Rain Boots
The slip-resistant rain boots will help keep your feet (and the lower half of your legs) dry on rainy days. They come in wide sizes ranging from 5-12 and have a 4.6-star average rating on Target's website. One five-star reviewer said they have wide calves and love these boots so much they are "so happy they could cry."
4. Torrid Black Chunky Lace-Up Hiker Boot
Need something a little more rugged but don't want to sacrifice style? These hiker boots are just the ticket. They feature a three-inch stacked heel to give you a little height and have a side zip so you can easily slip your foot in without having to fumble with laces. (The laces on the front are for show!) These boots have a 4.8-star average rating on Torrid's website.
5. Shoedazzle Aubriana Stretch Over The Knee Boot
Shoedazzle — which operates on a membership-based model — began selling wide-calf boots within the last few years. More recently, they have expanded their extremely affordable selection. This trendy style is available in both black and leopard, and the the square heel is super comfy and perfect for curvy babes.
6. ASOS DESIGN Wide Fit Katie Chunky Over The Knee Boots
The chunky '90s boot is so hot right now, with top designers like Prada and Bottega Veneta creating streetwear-ready styles. But you don’t have to break the bank to get the look; ASOS’ thigh-high version is sleek, sexy and fits wide calves.
7. Journee Kaison Extra Wide-Calf Boots
These slouchy, vegan suede boots come in five colors, are available in both wide and extra wide-calf circumferences and have a trendy stacked heel that’s not too high. If you're looking for the perfect boot to punch up your casual looks, this is high on our list.
8. JustFab Evelyn Heeled Boots
Like Shoedazzle, JustFab also runs on a subscription-based model, but with their extensive range of affordable wide-calf and wide width shoes? We think it is worth taking a second look. These knee-high boots come in three colors, including faux suede gray, faux suede black and a classic mock croc in a gorgeous and luxurious navy blue color. The boot comes with a padded insole and additional room in the footbed, ball of the foot and instep for a wide-calf fit.
9. Journee Trill Over The Knee Lace-Up Boots
These fun, sexy over-the-knee boots will be the life of any party. A faux suede make, vintage-style lace up details and a bright cherry red color make these showstoppers. (They're also available in neutral tones like gray, black and camel.) We love the manageable 3.23” heel height and elasticity of both the shaft and the laces, making these boots perfect for a variety of wide calves.
10. JustFab Liliana Heeled Bootie
Finding wide-calf boots aren’t just an issue for knee-high and over-the-knee boots. Oftentimes, the shafts of shorter boots are also too narrow for larger calves. These booties have ample room if you have a larger ankle circumference, and are available in versatile and classic colors like brown, gray and black.
11. NNG Over The Knee Long Boots
Stretchy over-the-knee boots with a comfortable low block heel and available in a ton of colors? No wonder these have over 5,000 verified five-star ratings on Amazon. These boots have earned raves for its low block heel and versatile style. Wear it casually, out on the weekends and even in the office. We love a shoe that works overtime.
