To share a message to all short women (or those who wish to wear boots). My entire life I’ve been thinking I have freakishly large calves. A calf mutant if you will, even when I was very thin, I STILL couldn’t find boots to fit me. Did I ever measure my calf? No, that would make too much sense. Turns out, I have a totally average calf width (why should you care? I’m getting there).
In another of a long fruitless list of interenet searches for wide calf boots I stumbled upon widewidths.com. There it was, explained in all its glory! It’s not that I have abnormally large calves – it’s that I’m abnormally short! Which means my calf begins way before other taller women’s calves begin.
So if you’re below 5’3, rest easy! It’s just your height that is freakish, probably not your calves.
