How to measure for wide calf boots

It’s fair to say, when it comes to shopping online for knee high boots it’s not a one size fits all purchase, there’s so much to consider, from how they look, how comfortable they feel and of course, how they fit across your calf.

Step 1: Take a tape measure and sit with your feet flat on the floor and your knees at a 90-degree angle.

Step 2: Wrap the tape measure around the widest part of your calf, making sure the tape is taught and not tight. Don’t forget to measure each of your calves, as they can differ in size.

Think about how you will wear your new boots, if you plan to wear them over your jeans or trousers, put them on as you measure for an accurate fit.
