Sadly, there's just not much out there that's new, that I like. (I already own all the basic styles...and then some...)

RCC I'm wondering the same thing. I really love those. Damn big, muscle calves.

I remember when you bought pair #1. Loved them. I rarely wear heels anymore though I like your #2s too. The detail is really unique.

I do need to buy snow boots this year though, so I also need to find a practical pair of snow boots.

Probably some of these if this winter is anything like last winter:

Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
I'm so sad. I have 4 beautiful winter boots that now no longer fit because my calves are too fat

I'll just have to look at your boot porn.

DSW now marks they're "wider calf" boots they way they do large and small sizes, and wide and narrow shoes. Even on their website. That's how I found mine.

What a timely thread. I just came home from DSW with these. The heel is pretty high but I think I can manage.

I really, really want a pair of boots for the winter! I don't think I can pull off tucking my jeans in not to mention I don't think any of my jeans would fit into a boot. I just want something cute and comfortable to walk around in for several hours at a time.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I got these last year:



Clarks Originals Witch Hazel

I just got these last week:



Privo Kinsey

I don't generally do heels, so I am a little nervous with these...so I'm thinking of exchanging them for something flatter. Also, the insert is not nearly as cushioned as other Privos I've seen, especially in the heel. But...they look fab on, so I dunno.

I've been eyeing:



Privo Ricegrass (love the eggplant suede, but might be boring and go for black...ooh, but I love the purple!!)

and



Privo Hayseed (probably in the black, which I can't find any pics of)

There are a number of Keen boots I like, and I ought to find a higher boot, but I too have calves that are troublesome, though not as troublesome as size my 5 (almost) feet with problems of their own.

I have uber large calves (and one is bigger than the other) and I get my boots from a couple of different places.

www.torrid.com - affordable (under $75) but not real leather...trendy, usually last 1-2 seasons. Available online and in store.

www.widewidths.com - they rarely have boots under $100, but almost all of them are real leather and specially made for large calves.

www.avenue.com - large calf boots in med and wide widths

www.lanebryant.com - just started carrying large calf boots online AND in select stores (most of the larger stores carry them).

Every now and then, I can find some on zappos.

Dang it...found these and they so out of my price range. They look like the Soda ones PH posted but I adore the color of these. The Sodas are much more affordable though...hmmmm.

Here's the Macy's page for the Madden version. [The grey looks really dark, but it's really a medium grey.] The only thing with buying in-store is size selection — I had to compromise on that.

Not purchasing but these are my favorite this season:


They have an old-fashioned edginess that I would love to pair with some of my skirts.

Favorite from last year:


And because I find these interesting, below is how people envision wearing them. I would do an understated romantic white dress with them:
