It’s officially tall boot season, which used to make me quite sad. I was an athlete growing up, so ever since high school I’ve had larger-than-normal (normal? I can’t think of a better term here) calves. This meant that, no matter how hard I tried and no matter how many pairs of boots I tried on, I could never find a pair of tall boots that would fit my calves. Even the boots marked “wide calf boots” never fit. If you’ve been in this situation you know how frustrating it can be to not have any boots fit your legs.
Finally, last year I found a pair of that fit me from Zappos! I wrote a Ros Hommerson Boot Review last year and wanted to mention it again for any of you searching for wide calf boots. I honestly can’t recommend these boots highly enough! While normally I wouldn’t attribute any article of clothing or pair of shoes to a heightening in self-esteem, I felt really good about myself when I wore these boots out last year because I could follow some of the trends, like wearing the boots over a pair of jeans! They’re a great quality and I’ll easily be able to wear them for years. (Thank goodness, because they are not cheap.) I only wish they came in brown!
Zappos has a selection of Ros Hommerson Boots. The ones I picked up were in the “wide wide calf” sizing.
