So I've often lamented the lack of boots that will go around my massive, Irish-peasant style 22" calves. It's worse because all the fun outfits I'm coming up with (harlequin wrap dress, belt skirt, kimono dress, etc.) really require the knee high boots to complete the image in my head. I've even had a pair of custom-made boots on my radar somewhere in priority between a new bathtub and kitchen flooring. Meaning next year. Maybe. If they don't give us more furlough days at work or cut my pay.
Yesterday I walked into Payless, of all places, and there was a pair of faux-leather high-heel knee-high boots by Predictions. The size 11 wide-width came with an extended calf size (i.e. an elastic gore in the back) and actually fully (if barely) zipped all the way up!
Sure the pleather and generally cheap construction means these are temporary...but they were also on clearance for $14.
I checked the Payless website and they're not listed, but if you have a local Payless you could call and ask if they have any in stock (Predictions high-heel knee high black pleather, Extended calf size) or just stop by. I plan to clear out the local stores here so that I have backup pair when they wear out.
