Pioneers in Slim Calf Boots Designed in England
Finding slim or narrow calf boots that fit well in a style you love has always been a challenge for women blessed with legs slimmer than the high street standard. If boots are too wide around the calf and top, they can flap and rub making them uncomfortable and prone to sagging rapidly. Our founders, Ted and Muffy Maltby, understood this only too well. Only able to buy boots in one calf size per style, they were unable to offer slim calf women’s boots that fitted properly. As a result, they decided to develop a range of boots that encompassed a choice of calf sizes which would offer the majority of women to choose their calf size in the style they wanted. This has evolved into what we at DuoBoots now offer: classic, stylish boots in a choice of calf size, for a fabulous fit which will make you look and feel amazing.
Choose from 10 Calf Sizes
If you have slim legs, you may have felt that knee high boots are not for you. Sagging ankles and flapping boot tops means you’ve been left feeling less than comfortable and certainly not glamorous. Here at DuoBoots, we want you to look and feel great in our boots, which is why all our narrow calf boots start at just 30cm. That is a whole 6cm smaller in circumference than the high street standard, which makes all the difference when you are looking for a really good fit.
When we design a style of boot, we do a lot of fit testing. Some styles are designed with a narrow ankle which means they fit the leg snugly, others have a straight leg which means the ankle is wider, and relaxed styles are looser again. Finding styles which fit narrow calves best will depend to a degree on how you like your boots to feel. We often find that slim calf boot customers find trying on a pair of boots that fit the leg snugly for the first time feels a little strange, but it only takes a few minutes to adapt, and once they realise this is how boots are supposed to fit and they look in the mirror they are delighted! It’s just that boots they have tried or worn before haven’t fitted, so the sensation of a boot fitting from the knee to the ankle is unfamiliar.
To find out the details on how each of our narrow fitted boots fit, please take a look at the fit notes on every product page for the styles you like:
A choice of calf size in slim calf fit boots is very difficult find, yet no one would expect rings or bras to come in just one fit! That’s why we offer calf fittings in 2cm increments. 30cm – 36cm circumference takes you from our smallest size to the high street standard. Calf size is the measurement around the circumference of your calf at the widest point when measured with your foot flat on the floor. See our Fit Guide if you need more help.
The shape of each individual’s legs vary too, so we offer a variety of styles, each one with its own fit credentials depending on which of our ‘lasts’ it is crafted on: ankles can be slim, standard or relaxed, and boot heights vary from mid-calf to over-the-knee, with our knee-high boots varying to suit longer or shorter legs. For information on how each product fits, please refer to the fit notes on each product page for details.
Our ankle boots have fitted foot widths, & come in a variety of toe shapes, so if you require a standard or slim foot the pointed or almond shaped toes on our standard fit may work best for you.
