Anyone have some suggestions or experience acquiring the black boots that fit big feet and calves.

I have a typical size 13-wide foot, but also have big calves.

I think that I have figured out that no matter what size boot I find, I'm going to need to install a zipper on the inside of each boot for ease of taking the boots on and off. The problem is finding a boot with an upper part big enough to fit my calf. Ideally, I don't want to be buying size 16+ boots just to fit my leg, but then too big or bulky on my foot.

Know anyone that makes custom boots for us?

Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have the Adtech Engineer boots in 13's. I've got big calves and they fit pretty well.

I wear the near identical boot sold by sportsmans guide some years ago, and I took it to a cobbler and had the calves widened with some black leather. Mine also have zippers--me and boots dont get along very well....but all my uniforms have boots!

Just take off the bottom strap with a sharp knife, then use a black sharpie to touch up the cut edge.

I was looking at those and wondering about the writing embossed. That's not an issue?

Mine is embossed in a different place that is not as noticeable.
