  1. ...such a sad day. i ordered a great pair of Chanel Knee-high Boots...
    so excited... got them today!

    ...but they could not zip up around my calves!!! such horror...

    ...alas i've always know this was a battle for me... european shoes makes are so cruel!!! why must all women have chicken legs to fit into those yummy boots?

    ...i'm 5'6 ...115 ...6 1/2

    ...so i can never have a high-end knee high boot???

    :crybaby:
     
  2. Oh, so sorry to hear.

    You can get them stretched... and if they can not be stretched enough you can have them altered to add more leather to fit.

    I know it sounds extreme...but I always have thin calves and my legs swam in boots...I took a beautiful pair of Gucci boots and had them "took in" up the leg at the zipper. Then I finally woke up one day and they were too tight...so the same shoe place "added leather" at the top of the zipper - so I can fit back in them beautifully.


    Both alterations were done in a fashion that was / is very beautiful. No one would know - unless I showed it to them.

    You might talk to Chanel in your area as to who they would recommend using. :smile:
     
  3. oooh that's a great idea^, i have a pair of chanel boots that has been sitting in my closet because they don't fit. They fit once i lost the baby weight but then i had another baby and now i'm back to trying to lose the weight but they were always a bit snug.
     
  4. Oh hun.. I'm with you on that! It is rare that I can find a pair of boots that will fit my fat calves!!!
     
  5. Don't stess, it's not you, it's the boots. My legs are athletic & I have a hard time fitting into boots....I'd rather have strong, shapely, muscular legs...appreciate what you have, life's too short!
     
  6. That is my HG item. I don't wear skirts or dresses because I don't like my legs, and would definitely wear them if I could cover my legs with gorgeous boots. Alas stylish, un-clunky boots have eluded me so far. They' either stop mid calf, which is an unflattering length, or they're short heeld, terrible quality leather and they're the most ugly, un-stylish, clunky boots I've ever seen.

    Where does Oprah get her boots? I know she must own some damnit!
     
  7. we have duo boots in the UK they're sized according to your calf size as well as your shoe size
     
  8. I think Chane boots and shoes actually come in a vareity of "width".

    I for one have tree-trunk like legs and boots therefore generally are not a good idea for me. I wear woolie tights - hey, I look like I am wearing boots anyway when I am wearing these woolie tights! LOL!
