Wide Fit Boots & Shoes

Most people think that plus size clothing is the only issue with a little extra padding but actually plus size fashion is just a snippet of our shopping woes! Weight distributes itself differently but finding wide fitted shoes and wide calf boots can also be a big issue! We’ve rounded up some of our favourites available right now! These boots were made for walking…

Be still my beating heart! Now those of us who are old enough to remember how tragic wide fit shoe and boot shopping has been should know that these sexy Sixties style cream boots are a thing of beauty and also shows how far the plus size market has come. At £65 these gorgeous cream wide fit boots are a style staple. You’re welcome!

Welcome to the Wild West! Short cowboy boots have really become an Autumn/Winter style staple, so we are pleased to see these gorgeous black croc style wide fit cowboy inspired boots from ASOS are a total style steal at just £35.

Buying into trends doesn’t have to be costly!

Animal print has remained a mega trend on the catwalk so it comes as no surprise that this has seeped into the boot world! Absolutely obsessing over these snake print boots! Wear them with ankle skimming jeans or boot cuts BUT also they will work excellently with dresses and skirts – Basically a total win.

Hotter has loads of shoes and boots available in regular and extra wide feet fittings. These have a stretchy panel at the back too to help you get a good fit. The quilt detailing along with the hardware buckle for me give these boots a designer finish!

They come in 4 colours too!

Santa Baby – Loving the faux fur cuff boots from Lane Bryant. Again made with plus size women in mind so you can be sure of a wider calf fit! A wedge is a great option for a boot you need to be in all day and of course the faux fur trim makes these booties feel super festive too! They come in both brown and black – so if you get one pair and they fit well we definitely suggest treating yourself to both because timeless footwear is hard to find! They’re discounted at the moment too!

I picked these red suede boots because we wanted to get your attention – but in truth DUO boots have loads and loads of absolutely beautiful wide calf leather and suede boots that look runway worthy. It was just these cuties popped the most – they also come in navy and in black. Duo boots allow you to measure your calf as the boots come in lots of different measurements (around 11 options in total) so you get the best fit. They are a little higher on the price scale so go for classic styles that you can wear again and again and really cherish.

These are totally festive though!

Slouchy boots are all about chanelling that Seventies vibe that was a big deal on the catwalk. Loving these black slouchy boots available in a wide fit from Evans – also available in brown – because they are a leather and fabric mix. The leather foot part means they will be sturdier than all suede and also not get ruined in the rain – hurrah for on trend but also extremely practical footwear – that is what we call a win – win!
