a peek into my curvy closet | boots

liz lamoreux

Over here, I'm beyond happy to have a little collection of boots that work with my curvy body, and I want to share all about them today. Note that most of these are affiliate links below linking to Zappos or Nordstrom, two stores that have free shipping/free returns, which makes me very happy when it comes to shoes!

First up (from left to right): The comfy low boots

I've tried on several pairs of Cob Hill shoes and I found all of them to be comfortable. I love these low-heel boots, and they actually have a lot of support + the softness my foot wants. It is a special kind of company that can mix support and softness. These are the Alexandra. I also love these.

Second: The low non-usual but still wool-lined Ugg boot

I've had this Ugg Grandle for about two years now. They don't make this exact style anymore, but this one is similar. It is super comfortable, and I often wear it without socks. And it fits my little heel support I wear with my plantar fasciitis foot. I'm also still very committed to my regular Uggs, and they've actually been supportive for me - I don't have flat arches so the softness really works for me around the house especially after I've been wearing dressier shoes if I've been out.

Third: Cowboy boots

When I was in Nashville last year, Vivienne and I had the best time shopping for cowboy boots. I was insistent that they wouldn't fit my calves but then I learned about the kind of style to look for (that v-shape should be deep to give your calf more room). These are Boulet, made in Canada, and I honestly swoon over them. And this color. The. Best. (They come in a gorgeous red too.) After searching, I found this exact pair right here.

And this is the part where I say, "Dear Zappos, you should carry these because women would buy a lot of them. For real."

Fourth: The red boots

Oh how I love these Miz Mooz. They are the wide-calf version of the Bloom boot and they are so much fun! I can walk in them all afternoon and actually tuck jeans into them. And the truth is they just make me feel sexy. Love wearing them with dresses that hit just below the knee.

Fifth: My all-time favorites

These Ecco boots just make me happy. They are such a good staple. This is the Hobart style, though I couldn't find this exact color. The Sullivan looks awesome too and actually has more buckles, which is great for curvy calves. The first time I tucked my jeans into them I felt so darn happy. Curvy girls want to wear that look too. Oh yes we do. 

Do you have some favorite go-to boots? I'd love to hear about them.

Edited to add: Cherie shared some great info in the comments that I'm reposting here but first I want to share that the Duo Boots link takes you to a video with sound, so be aware of that. And the boots on that site are gorgeous! I found about five pairs I'd love to try on. Thanks Cherie! She wrote: "Wide Widths has an incredible amount of sizing for feet, foot width & calf width. The boots on Duo Boots are utterly beautiful. Both links takes you to the respective websites with instructions on how & where to place a measuring tape around your calves. Duo Boots also shows a small video for each style boot with a model actually wearing & moving around in the style you are looking at to see if you would like that style & how far the shaft goes up the leg. Brilliant."
