Wide Calf Riding Boots

Every fall I admire the display of riding boots and every fall I’m disappointed when I can’t find a pair to fit my legs.  Genetics blessed me with squatty legs as I call them.  If I added another 2 inches in height my legs would be perfectly fine, but alas God added the 2 inches to my calves.  That doesn’t mean I don’t want to look cute in a pair of nice boots! This year I’m determined to find a pair that will work for my 16″ calves.

Since I don’t have time to get schlepping from store to store, I’ve started my search on Zappos.  Here are the candidates:

Ralph Lauren – Makenzie Wide Calf ($159)

Sam Edelman – Penny Wide Calf ($149.90)

Timberland – Banfield Tall All Fit Waterproof Boot ($220)

Aesthetically I like the look of the Ralph Lauren boots best.  The dark color is gorgeous. But the fact the Timberland’s are waterproof is a huge bonus.  Who wants to buy a pair of boots to have them ruined by a slushy winter day?

What do you think?  Found any wide calf boots you’d recommend?
