    Shoe Help Needed

    Advertisements
    I'm trying to find a pair of black, zip-up, knee high boots, but the problem is that I have fat calves. Every pair that I've found so far only zips like 3/4 of the way. Does anyone know of a place where they sell boots for those with bigger calves? Any help would be much appreciated!

    I know payless made boots at one time for bigger calved women. they had extra Elastic around the top. And I know there is a place that does specialize in that. Oprah talked about it once. Let me do a quick google.

    Torrid, but only torrid brand is for big calves. I learned that the hard way.

    i was looking at target one day for some knee high boots and they had some that had elastic. i run a lot so i have a similar issue. im really cheap i wont pay over like $40 but target has worked for me. i got some cute brown round toe ones from payless once too that everyone thinks is jessica simpson. they have elastic and are actually big in the calves for me.
