Question – Answer: Wide Calf Boots?

Question:  Do you have any suggestions for boots that fit wider calfs and are actually stylish?

Answer: I too struggle with this issue and I have searched high and low for boots that run a little wider and are actually stylist enough to wear at work in the fashion industry in New York City. Now there are styles available at plus size chains such as Lane Bryant, Torrid, and Avenue at very affordable prices. But you will get what you pay for and that is, noticeably fake leather. I have nothing against them at all and that is fine for shopping on a budget, running around on the weekend, or going out with friends when your bound to have a drink or three spilt on your feet. My answer for something that fits fashion industry standards; Marina Rinaldi. Italian plus size clothing designer that actually makes luxury, fashionable clothing in larger sizes.

From their website:

Shoe of The Day! Gucci ‘Trish’ Boot

The “Trish” boot from Gucci. $1795. Italy.

So it’ s that time of the year already ladies… time to get your boots out! We’ve already had one snow storm in NYC and it was in October! So who knows what’s to come… One of my favorite boots this season is Ms. Trish by Gucci! Simple yet special with the large piping detail, this 4″+ heel actually looks manageable to walk in! Available in black or cuir (camel) I can’t even decide which color would be best. I have seen this boot in person while browsing the shoe floor at Bergdorfs and let me tell you it is a beautiful thing. Of course it is made in Italy and I wouldn’t expect anything less from Gucci. Over-the-knee sexy but sophisticated as well. I can see it with jeans shopping in the city or dressed up with a dress or skirt for work. This boot is going lots of places let me tell you. And if you just so happen to have the budget… go ahead and splurge! $1795 will get you a whole lot of boot! Available at Bergdorf Goodman.

If 4″ heels aren’t for you, I also saw the flat version available which was absolutley devine!

Hope you like it too!
