I have wide calfs. Superwide. You wouldn't know it to look at me, cuz overall I'm not that big (though still bigger than I used to be), but I've got big legs. I come from a big-leg family. Matter of fact, clothes-whore that Grandma was, I don't even think SHE had knee-high boots. She had big legs, too. They ain't jiggly, neither. I walk a lot, always have, and I walk pretty fast. So mostly my calfs are muscular.
Any boot that's worth having are made for chicks with toothpick legs. Why is that? Those sexy stilletto boots? Can't get them past my upper ankle, even if they claim to stretch. Zip boots. HA HA! Even on "wide calf" boots from Eddie Bauer, or the ONE pair of knee-high boots I own, my "stretch" platform boots from Sketcher, it takes me at least 15 minutes of sweating and flexing to force my legs in them. And once they're in... there they must stay until end-of-day, or I'll never get them back on again.
So I go searching for "superwide" boots and come up with sinfully ugly, "pleather" boots where the heels are set back on the boot. I hate that. Or "kitten" heels that are 1" high and set right under the heel. Blech!
I want these, dammit!
and I want them in cream or snakeskin. And I'll never have them. Even if I lost weight I wouldn't fit them... when I was young and Pre-Sun and weighed 124 lbs, I STILL couldn't get my legs in those boots....
And I've found some place in the UK that makes wide leg, sexy boots. And they cost a life's fortune.
