Fab Body Guide: Stylish Boots For All Calves

I have a boot problem: I've discovered that my calves are too slim to fill out the top of some boots. Yes, there are worse things in life, but when endlessly searching for a stylish pair, it can be disheartening, not to mention unflattering.

Many girls have the opposite problem, where their calves are too large for boots. No matter your dilemma, Buckles and Bows, the leading experts in wide- and slim-calf boots, can take care of it. All their boots, like this Pout Black Leather Boot ($200), come in calf sizes one through five. If you're my boat, er yacht, find out what calf size you are and start customizing your next pair!

Hi I have found an alternative 'Fitted Boots' and these people will make the boot how you want it for no extra charge! They do a fab range of calf fitting boots but will also tailor them to fit you, so whether you are too tall, or short, or you have wide calves but skinny ankles, like me. Well I have tried a few of these calf fitting boot suppliers but they always have baggy ankles. Now I have ordered my second pair, these are the best fitting boots available. Cool styles, fantastic fit and high street prices I've found boot nirvana! here is the link:

This is great. I have large calves. I wish I had the opposite problem. I found a great pair of Naturalizers that fit my calves, but I unfortunately can not tuck my jeans in them.

Am I reading it wrong? On their calf measurement chart, it looks like they only include foot sizes up to American 8. I wear 8.5-9.

my calves are too skinny for boots too. i usually look like my feet are stuck in buckets! the only alternative has been the stretchy boots (gag) which i refuse to wear. I have found that Biviel and Faryl Robin have boot styles that fit well and look good - and are made from real leather. i'll look into this brand too.

In case anyone is interested I found another company that makes boots that fit your legs they're called Duo boots. I have two pairs, and they fit my skinny pins amazingly! Seems like retailers are suddenly getting wise to the fact that we're all different and our legs come in all shapes and sizes... it's about time hey! Duo seem to carry more styles in the widest number of leg sizes I can find (believe me I have done lots of research on this subject to date) heres the link: If you like the style above, you'll probably like 'Samara' heeled suede boots with straps up the side. They are having a SALE right now too.

Wait Fab, calves too slim to fill the boots? How about calves to muscular destroy boots. Oh yeah I can zip them up but the minute I walk agony for my calves or the zip pops and I'm Jack Sparrow in foppy boots! Muscular calves - that's what I get for running up hills, stairs and causing mayhem by kicking things. And I don't like boots with the stretch fabric top I want fashionable boots like you skinny calved chicks! But last year I found some it Aerosoles. Now if I can just get those YSL custom boots that Madonna wears on tour I'll be the happiest girl the world!

I've almost given up on thinking that there is a pair of boots out there that can fit my skinny legs. I love the idea of these boots but I hate the buckles. :(

This is perfect, Fab. It's hard to find boots that fit my fifteen-inch calves and I'm always wary of buying some online (many sites don't even list the circumference of the boots.

I also have very slender legs/calves, but I've managed to find a few pairs of boots that fit perfectly. My current favorite has two buckles like these at the top that are adjustable. So if I wear them over jeans, I can loosen them, and if I wear them with tights, I can cinch them to fit more snugly..

So excited to find a boot that is catered to my slim calfes. Unfortunately, they're currently sold out in my size ~ here's hoping they get some more in stock! :)
