Are you tired of how fashion and costume boot manufacturers don’t seem to understand that sometimes larger feet come with plus-sized calves too?
If you’ve struggled to find costume boots in your size that you can actually wear, you might be interested in this pair of boots:
This pair of boots is from Pleaser’s Funtasma line, model Hunter-200, size 11 (US Women’s sizing). Since these are costume boots, it’s a close size 11, though. You’ll probably be more satisfied with the fit if you normally wear a 10.5 or even a 10. The boots are black microfiber with faux fur and a 3.75” heel, and they’re reasonably comfortable to walk around in. But what’s special about these boots is that I’ve had them altered to fit a larger calf — the original boots have a solid tongue, meaning that there’s no give at all in the fit of the boot! I had a gusset placed in each of these boots by a professional boot repair shop which expanded the calf to accommodate a circumference of approximately 19”.
I love these boots, but I only got to wear them twice. And even then, I only wore them inside a convention space, on hotel carpet. It doesn’t get much more gently-used than that! These were $60 boots to begin with, and the extra work wasn’t free either (I recall spending at least $30 on the gussets), but I’m not trying to recoup the whole investment. If I can find someone willing to offer $50 for the pair, I’ll be happy, but even that price is negotiable. I don’t know what it’s going to cost to ship these babies either, so we’ll have to figure out if there will be any extraordinary costs involved with shipping to your address. Message me and we’ll see what we can work out!
If you’re looking for something a little less severe and more Victorian in nature, I also have these costume boots available. Once again, size 11 US, but since the tongue isn’t solid in these, they’re much more forgiving for larger legs. Once again, they were only worn a couple of times, but they also have a thinner construction than the boots above. $20 + partial shipping OBO.
