Knee- high wide shaft boots fit close to the skin and visually slim the calves. But once again when striving to make your calves look lighter don’t wear smaller shaft size boots as they will hinder blood circulation. Another good approach is to wear stretch boots as they look small but the material they are made off is elastic and can stretch to the required shaft width.
