The Best Boots for Your Legs
It’s not too much to ask for a pair that actually fits, no matter the size of your calves.

Look for: Elastic gussets, stretchy leather or fabric, buckles, or laces for extra give. Also, an angled cuff (not one that cuts straight

Avoid: Pull-on styles that are hard to get into, boots that end at the widest part of the calf muscle, and wraparound straps that accentuate any fullness.
Try wearing them: With tights or leggings in a matching color to create a long, lean line.
