Boots are the perfect fashion accessory and can add to the appeal of any garment you wear, be it a sporty tee and jeans combination or a dainty dress. For women with wide calves or those who wear plus-size boots, the right pair can be hard to come by. But not when you shop at Zevallos. Our business philosophy centers on your satisfaction. And we can ensure it because we make bespoke boots. Master cordwainers who work at Zevallos Shoes follow customer instructions and use measurements given by them. The result is boots that are ultra comfortable and rugged and will fit you.
Most boots feature a calf size of around 14 – 15 inches. If you’re an athlete or are genetically endowed with large calves, you need bigger boots, with calves that are 16 inches and above. The first and most important step are to get the measurement of feet and calves right. Take your time. Use a measuring tape or string to measure your calves. The spot where you measure calves depends on your height. If you’re more than 5’3” tall, then in the world of fashion, you are not considered petite. The shaft of boots normally extends for up to 15 inches, excluding the heel. Measure your calves at this point. Petite women may have short legs or longer legs but a shorter torso. In the former case, you should measure calves at the point where they are the widest and then settle for boots that are around an inch larger. In the latter case, you should follow the same rule of thumb mentioned for women who are 5’3” and more.
Remember, the spot at where you measure the calf depends on your height and relative leg height.
Since Zevallos manufactures boots, we take into account not just the calf size but also the size of the feet that you supply us with. It allows us to create boots that are proportionate in appearance and comfortable in fit. We can use elastic gores to afford a comfortable fit; this is a good choice for women who are missing out on a comfortable fit by a centimeter or two. Zips are another alternative and fashionable ones at that.
Ankle boots are a great alternative for women with wider calves because it gives them the freedom to experiment with different looks. Paired with a platform heel, these boots serve to create the impression of long legs and counter the width at the calves.
Zevallos will make custom boots that will fit you; if till now you’ve struggled with size problems with boots, you can trust Zevallos to help you experience the joys of well-fitting boots that will also last a long time. Get in touch with us today.
