Must Have Wide Width and Wide Calf Boots Of Fall/Winter 2017

Shirleen Color-Block Ankle Booties from Fashion To Figure

In the past I have shared with you the best place to find wide calf boots of various widths. But today I want to share with you what is hot right now, and the must have boots for this season that are available in wide widths and/or wide calf. Whether you’re looking for a casual pair of everyday boots or something to make you feel super sexy, this season has it all. With each pair I am sharing I will post the brands description as well as any comments I have and size information.

 

Right now some of the hottest boots (and clothes) are in lush fabrics like velvet and suede. This is a total trend alert, and I suspect this one will go well on in through the winter. Hope you live in an area that gets cool enough to take part in this one. If you haven’t worn these fabrics before be aware they can get very hot. Here are my top picks for this trend.

 Kimberly Velvet Over The Knee Boot

Kimberly Velvet Over The Knee Boot

 

Looking for the wow factor? Try these lush, velvet wide width over the knee boots. The almond toe and chunky heel add a little something extra to this stylish boot.

This is from Avenue’s Cloudwalker collection, so they are comfortable as well as stylish. Available in two colors, black and burgundy. Sizes 7 to 13 in wide width. It has approximately a 17 inch circumference along with a lace-up calf and a stretch goring panel for comfort.

Lace up back of the stretch velvet wide calf boots from the AvenueI just got a pair of these myself in black, so expect to see these show up in a few of my styled post this winter. I have to say I was a bit surprised when I received them. It calls them velvet, but in person it feels more like what I would call satin. They went on easier than I expected, and are probably some of the sexiest boots I have ever owned.

 

 

 

 

Circus by Sam Edelman Velvet Rhinestone Combat Boots

Circus by Sam Edelman Velvet Rhinestone Combat Boots from Torrid

 

An amazing, exclusive collection at Torrid presented by Circus by Sam Edelman. Rich and sumptuous wine red velvet lends a nostalgic, 90’s twist to these comfortable combat boots. The lace up front features sparkly, shiny rhinestone on the tongue.

I suspect these won’t last long, so if you want them get them soon. They come in sizes 6 to 13 wide width. They do come in half sizes, which don’t see very often. And they are made exclusively for Torrid.

 

 

 

Heavenly Soles Embroidered Ankle Boots

Heavenly Soles Embroidered Ankle Boots from Simply Be

 

The embroidery trend reaches from head to toe and these soft suede boots from Heavenly Soles are sure to make a statement. All-over embroidery detail, block heel and inside zip. Wear with your favorite denim. Find them at Simply Be.

If you want to hit multiple trends, these are the definite ones for you. They are available in sizes 6 to 11 and widths E and EEE.

 

 

 

Another trend we are seeing this year in boots, and somewhat in clothing just not as much, is bright and bold colors. I am a big fan of bright and bold colors from neon to jewel tones, but we usually just don’t see those sort of tones for fall and winter. So I personally think its great to be able to play with these colors all year round. Here are my favorites for this trend.

Faux Suede Ankle Boot with Block Heel

Faux Suede Ankle Boot with Block Heel from Lane Bryant

 

A pointed-toe ankle boot from Lane Bryant. It has a faux suede upper and block heel. Elastic goring. Back-zip closure. Padded footbed.

Add a pop of blue to your outfits this season with these fantastic ankle boots. They would look fantastic with everything from jeans to dresses. Available in sizes 7 to 12 wide width.

 

 

 

 

Shirleen Color-Block Ankle Booties

Shirleen Color-Block Ankle Booties from Fashion To Figure

 

The Shirleen ankle booties  from Fashion To Figure give a nod to mod with color-blocked faux suede and a marbleized block heel. Rock this playful statement pair with everything from mini dresses to skinny jeans.

Available in size 7 to 10 wide width. The heel on this one is probably the highest one so far at 3.5 inches, so if that isn’t your thing, this might not be the one to choose.

 

 

 

Heavenly Soles Pointed Ankle Boots

Heavenly Soles Pointed Ankle Boots from Simply Be

 

Slip into these pointed toe ankle boots from Heavenly Soles and make a statement this season. Soft uppers with v shape detail and finished on a slim heel.

Find these at Simply Be. They are available in sizes 6 to 11 and widths E and EEE.

 

 

There are actually a lot of trends hitting at once this season, and I don’t want to end up listing every shoe on the market. So for this last category I want to include some things from various trends, but I think they group well. I think it comes down to the details. Small details, whether it be corset like lacing or embroidery, are a huge thing this season. Here are my picks.

 

Tall Lace-Up Boot

Tall Lace-Up Boot from Lane Bryant

 

From Lane Bryant its their tall lace-up boot with a medium block heel. Faux suede. Elastic goring at back stretches for the perfect fit. Side-zip closure.

Available in sizes 7 to 12 in wide widths. While this one is wide widths, I would not recommend this one for someone who needs a wide calf. Lane Bryant’s website says it is a Calf: 13 1/2″ Shaft: 14 5/8″. It is always helpful to know your calf measurement when boot shopping. It will save you a lot of time and frustration.

 

 

Lace Up Lace Heel Boots

Lace Up Lace Heel Boots from Torrid

 

Pick up the call, girl. These boots from Torrid are taking you out for one wild night. The peep-toe, high-heeled, knee-high style gets lucky in sultry black lace and is naughty by nature with a lace up front.

Coming in at 4.75″ high, these heels are definitely the highest on the list. These go beyond just needing to being comfortable walking in heels like the last pair I mentioned being high. You must be experienced with heels to walk in these. But if you can, wow these are hot! They come in both wide widths and wide calf. It comes in 6 to 13. It is available in half sizes as well.

 

 

Hamilton Soutache Trim Tall Boot

Hamilton Soutache Trim Tall Boot from the Avenue

 

From the Avenue’s Cloudwalkers line. Step into luxury with a tall, faux suede wide width boot featuring delicate soutache trim. These boots will be the centerpiece of any outfit.

If you want a boot with some drama but can’t do a heel, then consider these. They don’t specifically say they are made for a wide calf, but the measurement listed is Approx. 17 inch circumference. And boots can typically start to be called wide calf at around 15.5″.

Date Night Chic With City Chic

City Chic Skater DressFrom the first time I saw a City Chic dress I was in love. And after the first time I experienced their customer service I entered a relationship that will last a lifetime. Sometimes you find a brand that just gets you, and for me City Chic is definitely one of those brands.

They offer a wide variety of styles, from laid back boho to classic retro styles and everything in between. And their dresses fit me like a dream. Like this skater dress, many of City Chic’s dresses are perfect for date night. I may even be planning on wearing one for my upcoming Anniversary Dinner.
