Wide Calf Riding Boots
Initially riding boots were made to be used for horse riding. This type of classic boot is high enough in the leg to protect the leg of the rider from being squeezed by the saddle. They have a hard toe to prevent the foot from injuring and a well-defined heel to hold the foot in the stirrup. The modern riding boot is low-heeled, heel is less than one inch.
Nowadays there is a variety of fashion riding boots and cowboy boots with an extra wide calf and ladies with wider or athletic calves won’t have any trouble making their choice. Womens equestrian boots are always in fashion and look classy and chic. You can always go outside in a chilly winter day wearing a pair of classic low- heel riding boots and tuck in your skinny jeans or leggins. Riding boots can be combined with a casual skirt or dress as well.
Wide calf riding boots can be very warm and comfortable when the size and width fit not just your feet but also the calves. Fitting the calf width is just as important as matching the foot size when choosing the right pair of extended calf riding boots. You are paying for them and you need to get the best for your money. Some wide calf riding boots have zippers zippers at the back of the boots for easy fit while others have hidden gore or laces to extend the calf circumference when needed.
