Midday Fix: The best boots for fall

Boot Shopping Tips:

Wide-shaft boots typically give women an extra two inches around their calves and ankles

Try on boots in the afternoon when your feet are the largest and your lower legs are most likely to swell

Don’t confuse foot width with calf width in sizing (The letters “D,” “W,” “EE” or “WW” refer to foot width, not shaft width.)

Be sure your boot fits snugly at the instep to hold your foot in place.

Try on boots with the socks you will wear them with.
