Dublin field boots have different calf sizes, should be no problem finding the proper size, gorgeous boot & under $200, the extra wide calf size is huge too. I lucked out finding my hubby half chaps (he has massive calves, more like bulls really), there was this tack warehouse we stumbled upon. Halfchaps, extra wide calf, $15, got me a pair too at that price.

Misscolors you have my great sympathy, I have size 11 feet and struggle, I can imagine 12's are just a bit more difficult to find again.

Here is a great chart with widths of all kinds of boots, off to read up

I got my new Fuller Fillies half chaps and I LOVE them. They are a little snug but they are new, so to be expected. They are so comfy and don't restrict movement at all. These are the ones I got Fuller Fillies Faux Suede Huggy Half Chaps - Chaps from SmartPak Equine

I have always had trouble finding stock boots that fit at all. It may be worth saving all the pennies and get a pair of custom boots. My calves change shpes depending on what work I am doing from one year to the next. Custom boots last a long time with proper care.

My favorite, are Dehner boots that have three buckles on the side. They have some adjustment that allows for heavier or lighter times. There is nothing better than a pair of boots made to your every measure. I almost stay in a constant state of saving for the next pair.....

Foal
I am not wide but I am quite tall and slender... I need boots and chaps that are extra tall AND narrow. This makes it nearly impossible to get boots and chaps without a custom order or guessing and hoping an online order will fit. Luckily there is a tack shop within a reasonable distance that carries a huge supply of everything!

Absolutely. I have shown in CDI-W's with no comment. I don't wear them with a shadbelly, but have no problem wearing them with a frock. They are unconventional, but I have not had one problem. Hard to fit people and, like me, people who have broken their legs and find it hard to put on dress boots, must be given some latitude, IMO. I started wearing these long before zippers, and still like how they adjust to thicker/thinner breeches and leg variations.

LOL, I looked at the price of them and darn near fainted......one for the future, but such a sensible idea, as you say allows for summer weight or winter weight clothing and people Also a bonus for us fluid collectors who swell and shrink through the month....

Now to get a more mainline company to start making them, it has to be beneficial as you could cut down the number of calf widths you need to offer
