Thick Ass Calves


I have really thick calves. No, not cute baby cows. Thick ass, muscular, tree trunk, power calves. I can go on and on. I also have a love for boots, especially during the fall and winter months. I love the mid-calf and knee length boots the best. Ankle-booties are stupid. Yea I said it, they are worthless. Why call them booties and not just shoes? I don’t understand.

Anyways, every year fall comes around and I want to go out and buy sets and sets of boots.However there is always a problem that arises with this predicament. My calves are too wide. I have to buy boots from Torrid or other big girl stores, but when you buy boots from plus size places they tend to sell you the run of the mill flat fugly boots. The type of boots that are not as stylish or sexy that thinner girls get to wear. Also, they jack up the price by $50 because they have to use more fake leather or fake suede to cover your big ass calves.

I understand that the wider the calf the more real calves you have to use but come on, if you’re charging us more than at least make it worth our while and sex up our options. Now onto the real issue at hand. I have come across a few pairs of boots that I feel are sexy, stylish and affordable.
