Ever spotted your dream pair of boots, only to discover that they're too tight or too loose around the leg when you try them on? We know how frustrating that can be – which is why we've developed our range of flexible fit boots with elastic adjustment to give you around 12 extra millimetres of wriggle room.
Plus, you can browse by our Fitted, Semi-fitted and Relaxed Fit boot styles to find your ideal fit. To pinpoint the styles that will fit you the best, you'll just need to know your shoe size and find out your calf circumference. Read on to find out how to measure your calf.
To find your calf circumference you'll need a fabric or paper tape measure – you can download one below to print out.
When measuring yourself for footwear, it's a good idea to put on the tights, socks or jeans that you plan to wear with or tuck into your boots – extra layers can add width. With your feet flat on the floor, carefully wrap the tape measure around the widest part of your calf – see our video on the right as a guide. You may need to take a few measurements at different heights until you've found the widest point of your lower leg. It's also a good idea to measure both calves and use the larger width, in case of any variation between your legs.
Note down this measurement to the nearest millimetre. This is your calf circumference.
Now that you know your calf circumference, think about the style of boot you want. We've grouped our boots into three key looks:
To find the boots that will fit you most comfortably, compare your shoe size and calf circumference measurement with the recommended fits for each type of boot in our chart below.
For example, if you wear a UK size 5 shoe and have a calf circumference of 372mm, you'll find that our Fitted range suits you best if you're after a snug fit – plus you could also wear any of our Relaxed Fit boots for a slouchy, unfitted look.
