Roundup: Wide Calf Riding Boots

Part of our mission at GYPO is to provide helpful resources for women of all shapes and sizes. Today we are bringing you a riding boot roundup specifically for Pretties with wider calves. A good quality riding boot is a GYPO Closet Staple and everyone deserves to have a pair in their closet that they love and that fits them well.

wide calf riding boot boots plus size

Before you start shopping you’ll want to measure your calf so you have a better chance of finding a pair that fits you well. To get the most accurate calf measurement follow these steps:

  1. Sit down and place your feet flat on the floor in front of you.
  2. Use a tape measure and wrap it around the widest part of your calf. Don’t pull too tight as you won’t want your boot to be too tight.

Petite Fit Note: If you are petite (under 5’4” tall) you’ll want to add 1.5-2” to your calf measurement. Due to your smaller frame your calf is lower than the opening of the boot since boots are designed for women of average height. Adding an extra inch or two will allow the shaft of the boot to fit your calf better.

Be sure to click the image if you like the style, often it’s available in other colors as well. Where possible we have noted the calf circumference of the boot in inches.
