Finding the Perfect Fit

Choosing the right size and fit is crucial when shopping for wide calf cowboy boots. Make sure to consider your calf width to ensure a comfortable fit.

Measure Your Calves: The first step is to accurately measure the widest part of your calves with a flexible measuring tape. Make sure to measure both calves because they may not be the same size.

Know Your Calf Width: Once you have your measurements, you'll have a better understanding of how wide your calves are. Common calf widths for boots are categorized as narrow, regular, wide, and extra wide. Knowing your calf width will help you narrow down your options.

I plan on wearing these to work too!” – Elisha S
