I have 17.5 inch calves and though the 16' calves specified for these boots might fit albeit a little snug--but I could wear them. The calves are way larger than 16" and the top of the boots have a circumference of over 20" --consequently, I looked like an anorexic Puss in HUGE boots. You could get another leg in those boots they were so wide. Unless you have 20" calves DO NOT BUY THESE BOOTS.
Calves sized for a bullarina's...
