« Clark's Nikki Midtown Boot for Wide Calves | Main | Win a Pair of Hotter Shoes »

September 22, 2013



Oh, those Nayas are pretty!

Here's a challenge for you: I have 15" calves and 7.5-8" ankles. So borderline wide calves and very skinny ankles (and fussy feet, natch). Most tall boots (aside from laceups), if they fit in the calf, are ridiculously galoshy around the ankle on me. Tall order, I know, but have you seen anything that fits the bill? I am craving something sleeker that's not a laceup. I do have the Naot Allures which are surprisingly sleek on me.


Any suggestions for comfy(ish) boots I could wear to work? I wear suits or business separates most days. A skirt with boots works if the boots are "formal" enough, but "formal" tends to equal uncomfortable.


LJ, I really like Rockport boots for business-chic with comfort. Here's a wedge stretch boot:

I also really like the Clark's Tamryn leaf. It's got a 2 1/2" heel with an Ortholite footbed (cushioned well).

Here's a good deal on a dressier Clark's boot:


Another about Blondo boots? They're beautiful, comfortable and dressier than the ones I featured:

Diana, have you tried the Wolky Tinto? Great brand for fussy feet. From pictures you can see the ankle on the boot is pretty slim and delicate, while the calf can accomodate up to 16 inches.


Diana, try Merrell's Captiva Strap, sister boot to the above featured. They should be perfect, plus they are waterproof and stylish.


I have moderate hallux limitus, plantar fasciitis, a wide forefoot, and 15" calves. I need a rigid forefoot and cushy heels with the option of wearing my 3/4 insoles. Right now Dansko Professional XPs and Naots from the Shell collection are working for me. Any ideas for a black riding boot or maybe something with a rocker bottom--or any boot ?


I am so glad I came across your blog in my search for comfortable boots. I immediately zeroed in on the Merrell boots and Nayas shown above as having a look I liked. Because of the button issue on the Merrell Captiva Launch boots I ordered the Captiva Strap boots. These are the best fitting boots I have ever had. The toebox is plenty roomy - no squished toes- and they just feel great. They also look really good so there is no trading comfort for looks. I will drfinitely look to this company when I buy hiking boots. Thank you!
