calf too tight!,
This review is from: Kamik Women's Heidi Rain Boot (Apparel)
I bought these lovely boots based on Amazon users' high ratings for durability, but had to return them. :( The calf was just too tight. I'm a short (5'4"), plus-size (sz 18) woman, so the narrow top was too high up my leg. I used my measuring tape and measured 15" around the outside of the top (14" on the inside). Unfortunately, this is their shortest style. I'll look elsewhere.

I have to agree with you - I am also 5'4" and a size 12 and the boot is too tight on my calves, as well. What a bummer! The shoe actually fits well on my foot and the boots are super cute. But a no go in the end.

I do NOT understand why they don't have sizes of calves for boots!! I am the opposite - 5'1" - sz 2 - the boots hang around my calves. I look like I'm playing dress up with my mommy's boots...

Thank you so much for actually measuring and saving the rest of us from ordering and not having a good fit! I also have larger calves and always have a problem with them being too tight. I don't know why they don't give that measurement in the explanation.

Thank you so much for this warning! I have big calves and these would not have even been close to big enough. You saved me a lot of hassle, time and stress! Did you find any that work for you? If so, please tell us!!!

Take a look at the Chooka Rain Boots on Amazon. They have an adjustable calf strap and all the reviews state they are wide on calves, so may be right for you. I have the opposite problem - I'm Asian, and have skinny calves, so your review helps me!! I will order these ones!

Thanks for measuring and providing with the exact inches. Saved from ordering and returning.

You can always check the measurements on Zappos. They provide the circumference around the widest part of the calf, as well as the height of the boot shaft (from top of arch to top of boot). HTH!
