Tell us if this sounds all too familiar: You’re browsing a shoe department, and ask the salesperson for a few pairs to try on. Style one is too narrow for your feet; style two stops zipping mid-calf. It’s not long before the mission shifts from finding a look you truly love to something—anything!—that fits.
Yes? Not today. Because a silly little thing like standard sizing should never compromise the glorious experience that is buying new heels, flats, and boots, we’ve scoured the internet for the best options available for wide feet and full calves (including the burgundy ankle booties above, available for a cool $108 right here ). Keep scrolling to stock up!
1. Thigh-High Boots
The Lycra spandex stretch panel down the back of this boot is perfect if you have a fuller calf. It adjusts to your leg for a snug fit that's still comfortable.

2. Riding Boots
Equestrian-inspired hardware, polished black leather, a sleek knee-high shape—these boast everything you love about classic riding boots without any pinching around the calf.

3. Moto Boots

4. Strappy Sandals
While tan strappy sandals are ideal for transitional weather, it's hard to find ones that don't painfully cut into wide feet. That's not an issue, however, the generous sole on these beauties (which—bonus!—also go up to a size 13).
Torrid available at torrid.com | $55
Between the extra room in its toe beds and striking tortoiseshell print, these will become your new go-to flats.

Leave room for thick socks during snow season by choosing a low cut shape with adjustable straps.
