Default Payless Boots with Extended Size Calf

I was at Payless today trying on shoes, and I noticed that some style of boots come in "extended calf". They're suposed to have an extra 2" in the calf compared to the regular size. I tried them on and they fit my plump legs nicely. http://www.payless.com/Catalog/Produ.../Extended_Calf

Thanks for the heads up ppinkie! I'm glad payless is finally paying attention, but it kills me how whenever payless or many other stores want to market shoes in an extended size they always do it in the least popular color. Every single boot on the site in extended calf sizes is brown.

Hi Lilly! I don't know if you just missed this boot, or if it wasn't what you were looking for...but I thought I would point it out, in case. I think it's very cute, but I could never do that heel anymore, no matter how much I'd like to.

Given how hard I am on my footwear, I love the idea of inexpensive shoes. However, the low cost seems to always mean manmade materials. My feet sweat like mofos in faux leather.

Default Torrid

Another place where you can get boots to fit over larger calves is Torrid.

Visit a local store or go to:

www.torrid.com

I work there and I can tell you that they are fabulous! Not only do they have adorable shoes in wider widths, they also have amazing clothes in sizes 10/12 to 26/28

Check it out!!!
