I’ve got that problem, too. I got a pair of the Steve Madden flat suede slouch boots and I don’t have this problem in them. But if you’re looking for straight boots or anything with a heel, I haven’t found a solution yet. 🙁

I definitly have that problem! I actually get mine taken in. Discovering that you could do that was my savior. Ya it sucks you have to spend extra money to have boots fitted, but I cant help it im obsessed with boots. They only way I dont have to have them altered is if i wear them with pants tucked in. I feel your pain! Its not fun looking like a pirate it boots that are way too big.

Ugh I have the opposite problem! Even when I was a size 4, I still could not find a pair of boots that would zip past the lower calf. 

Thank God for long wedding dresses.

I just bought a pair of christian louboutin suede boots last year and went to a shoe repair that was recommended. Ok prepare yourself…..It was 200! I know thats really expensive but they were black boots that ill wear alot. You can understand I have been dying for a pair of fitted boots. Im sure it depends on the place and type of boot. I would only recommend doing it to a pair you plan to wear alot.

There’s a company here in the UK that sells narrow and wide calf boots: http://www.duoboots.com/  I think they ship to the US, but perhaps there’s a US version of this same thing?

I have the same problem. I just bought a pair from Victoria’s Secret … they are still a little big but i just decided to rock them anyway… really they only look silly if you let them!

I know that on zappos.com there is a search function that allows you to pick “narrow calf”- I can’t remember where it is, you kinda have to dig around the site for it, but it will narrow the boots down to ones for really skinny calves!

I got franco sarto stretch leather tall boots.  They fit like a glove, and look great.  It’s like a custom fit.  I wore them all week last week.

They look freakishly shiny in this picture, but mine are not:


Of course I also have my corset lace Fluevog Sugars.  The corset lace makes it amenable to any calf size.
