    Default Boots you can get that actually fit your calves

    i have super skinny calves and have a horrible time finding knee high boots that actually fit my calves and don't look like rain boots knocking around my knees. a few years ago i found this website (duoboots.com) that you order by the circumference of your calf, whether it be larger or smaller than those typically found in stores.

    i have one pair and will be ordering a second pair in the next week or so.

    the tucking jeans into your boots thread prompted me to share this.

    I have the same problem, thin legs and I LOVE boots but the fit is so hard to get. I found several pairs at Khols last year that fit pretty well. I tried Zappos a couple oif times but Im not ordering anymore because the ones I tried just dont work for me

    Try DUO- they sell boots in multiple widths and they'll ship to the US.

    i ordered duo boots last year and they still didn't fit right in the calf and the ankle. if i have a super tiny calf, why would i need a baggy ankle? didn't make any sense. the return shipping & insurance was so expensive that i'd rather order locally and then pay to have them tailored/cobbled. is cobbled a word? you know what i mean.

    I have the opposite problem. Calves too large. And not due to overweight, always been a problem. Even when I was 110#.

    For those with skinny calves - use the stairs or add that sort if thing to your exercise regime.

    I understand. Nordtrom's has some for narrow calves, if you use those words in the search feature. Low shipping and their stores take returns back no shipping charge. You can search Zappos, etc with the same criteria, the boot descriptions all list the circumference of the shaft. I know there's limited choice out there.

    thanks, but no thanks. i like my calves the way they are. just because boots aren't made typically to fit mine doesn't mean bigger calves are better.

    I am heavy on leg exercises and I run and play tennis. My legs are long and lean but muscular. It doesnt help. And I dont like stretchy boots either
