Long boots for chunky legs

Does anyone have any suggestions where I can buy a pair of knee high boots? I have wide calves but my feet are normal width and I find some wide fit boots are too wide for my feet.

I can only afford one pair of boots and they need to be suitable for work with a skirt and for casual wear with skinny jeans or leggings.

I've seen these on the Next website but I'm looking for other ideas.

Thanks in advance.

Duo boots, they measure your calves and you get them to fit perfectly.they are pricey but my last pair lasted me 7 years!

It's quite a long time since I bought boots and wide fit were as rare as hens' teeth then!

I'll have a look at Duo, I don't mind paying more if they are comfortable and fit!

Try simply be. I have very chunky legs and they do a range of leg widths.

Duo have a fantastic collection this year !

A second for Duo. I have two pairs and I love them. They are the first long boots that have ever fitted me. Wide fit in other shops are just not wide enough for me.

I have chunky calves but found Hobbs boots fit nicely

Clarks have a few pairs in the wide calf fit.

I ended up with a pair from Sainsburys a couple of years ago. They weren't sold as being 'wide fit' but they fit my sturdy legs quite nicely.

M&S are fab for this. Fabulous quality too. I have 2 pairs still going strong after 2 winters.

I find Duo are really baggy on the ankle though. I have these DMs (bear with me, look at the link, they are not "bovver boots"!) in 3 colours, which I wear with everything, and they are now entering their 8th winter!

Fly London Mol boots are great

Fly boots are lovely, but they don't go over my chunky calves (muscly, not fat).

Can't find them on the website but next have a pair of riding boots with an elastic panel in black and brown for £46. They are great and come in a wide fitting they are brilliant - they have had them in store for 3 years and I renew mine every year.
