Re: help with boots please!
I have the same problem often. Here are a couple thoughts.
1. Check Zappos boots, because they list the calf circumference, and you can check it against your own calves.
2. If you're planning to wear them with skinny jeans tucked into the boots, then yes, I think you'll be ok with a bit of extra space. You'll need a bit of space to tuck the jeans in, and then if they're a little slouchy, I think that looks cool.
Hope this helps a bit.
