Boots for “Normal” Girls!

by Erin Flynn

Knee High, Over the Knee, and well..almost any self or label proclaimed boot involves actually getting that boot over your calf before being able to wear it.

You can do one of two things… pretend like you have no idea what I’m talking about and completely ignore this post (click here to go back to facebook) or own up to the fact that fitting a boot over your “athletic” calf is not only a bit of a challenge, but a miracle. At some point in many of our lives we have found ourselves at the mercy of our dear friend and/or significant other begging them while sitting on the side of the bed, couch, or chair to please help pull off the infamous boots while trying to keep what’s important still on…your feet!

It’s not that your calf is “plus size” or “big boned”? It’s probably just normal, but as we all know normal would be considered as somewhat plus size in the fashion industry. So what should we do about this? Start knocking on designers doors demanding boots that fit…Right?

Luckily, someone’s already done that for you! So check out these sites below to find boots for “normal” people!
