Manolo says, the Manolo he cannot tell you how many times he receives the emails such as the following from his internet friends.
I have a strange problem that has plagued me for years. I have extremely large calves. Not a normal problem, except when I want to buy some knee-high boots!! It’s impossible. I have tried everywhere, I have tried J.Crew which offers wider calf sizes, I have dried elastic insets, I have tried it all and still have no knee-boots. Last time I measured, they were 15-16 inches around (my calves that is!)! No joke. (No risk of cankles here, my ankles are the opposite and are tiny!). Is there any maker you know of, offering boots for larger calves? Should I get custom made boots? Where do you even go to get custom boots? Please help me, I am begging you!
Soulfully searching for boots,
This problem it is sadly one that usually did not have the satisfactory solution. Typically, the boots for the girls of the big calves, they are inferior in the quality and style, and the Manolo he will not recommend such things to his friends.
However, now there appears to be at least one of the better designers of the shoes who is addressing this problem. Behold, the Lumiani 69 Extra Calf!
This boot it is made in Italy, and is of the better quality, and the style it is not bad. However, for the Manolo’s friend, the best feature is that it has the circumference around the calf of 18 inches! This it should fit even the most athletic of the legs.
