How to measure boots

On the product page, you will find the measurements of each boot: shaft height and calf circumference as taken from size 6 boots. Measurements will vary slightly if you size up or down from size 6:

Shaft height: measurement differs by 1/8" for each half size
Calf circumference: measurement differs by 3/16" for each half size

Wide width styles: shaft height is 1/8" taller than medium shaft heights
Wide width styles: calf circumference is 3/16" more than medium calf circumference

Naturalizer Jerri

How to find the right calf fit

Wrap a flexible (cloth preferred) tape measure around the fullest part of your calf to determine your calf circumference.

Wide Calf

If your calf circumference is 16" or more, you will probably find the best fit shopping our wide calf styles.
