For those of you, like me, that continue to be on the hunt for the perfect knee high wide calf boot here is my current favorite. It is a David Tate. I need a Size 9.5 WW US with a wide width and a wide calf. I do really well with a lace boot, because although my feet and calves are wide, my ankles are not. Sometimes I like less expensive boots because they are lighter. Today I found a new “on-line only” vendor. At Wide Widths, not only do they sell wide boots but they tell you how to choose among them.
Everywhere I go I see knee high boots, but I live in my mid-calf comfortable, cheap Avenue Boots (above), which I wore yesterday. I yearn for the elegance of knee high boots. But as I have told you before, because of this yearning, and many years of failure, I have a deal with my husband that I will not order boots by mail, I can only buy boots if I try them on in person. So I may wait for fall and check out the local Avenue and Torrid stores for knee boots (or I might just have to sneak in an order from Wide Widths, because I do love this David Tate, and so do my readers). I thought you might like to know about this on-line specialty boot shop. Ciao Bellas…affinity
