Many of my clients are always on the hunt for boots with wide calves. I've personally spent many hours searching for good ones. This post is about the opposite need: narrow calves. For awhile there, I was like a mad woman. I was convinced that this was going to be the year that I would find boots that didn't gap around my calves or fall down or otherwise look ridiculous. I ordered and returned several pair. I tried on many, many more with no luck. For awhile, I convinced myself I'd just wear thick knee high socks all the time.
Then, I went into my favorite Northern Virginia comfort shoe store and found these boots. They're made by Cobb Hill, which I had never heard of. Well, wouldn't you know, they're owned by New Balance! That made sense since my PT had recommended that I buy New Balance (and I did) back when I was having back issues. They weren't labeled for narrow calves, and they're not tight, but they are the best I've found by far.
They have a slight heel, but they haven't hurt my back at all, and they're also very cute. They were expensive, but not compared to Frye or many others, and they're actually on sale now.
Looks like Cobb Hill also makes shorter boots if you're looking for a really comfy boot.
Oh! And if any of you are searching for a wide calf boot, comment below because I have LOTS of ideas for you!
