Ladies... How are you finding boots to fit!


Recommended Posts

Hi...


I am really struggling to find boots to fit...


I am a size 5 with slim to average ankle / calf measurents but if I can actually get my feet into them I can't fasten the buggers up! Is it just me having this problem or is it a widespread issue?

I have the same problem - most women's legs are just more shaped than most men's. You can get specific ladies boots that may fit better but generally its just a case of trying lots on until you find something that fits. I have Sidi black rain evos (ironically as does my OH) and these are OK or me

I am trying on just about everything on the shelf... touring, race the lot... to no avail!


Thanks Bonniebird I will try to find the Sidi's as they are ones I haven't tried yet!

I wanted the Daytona Ladystar for a bit of extra height but I couldn't get the arch of my foot into them, literally couldn't get my foot in! Was very much the ugly sister in the Cinderella story :cry:


I ended up with boys TCX Competitizone (or summat like that) they fit fine though I struggle the get the zip over the over the ankle when I have my leathers on under them :roll:


ETA: Check out this blog all about ladies gear! http://gearchic.com/

My 'official' riding boots are Frank Thomas Ugly Wellies (well, not really, but that's how I think of them - they're Aquatec something or other).


The problem I have is that the shops I look in regularly never have any size 9s (yes yes I know) so I try on mens boots, but they won't fit around my calves...
