How To Get The Perfect Fit:
First, the boot shaft is the part of the boot that covers the leg. The measurement starts at the inside seam of the boot where the shaft meets the sole of the boot and stops at the top of the boot. To determine where the top of a rain boot will hit on your leg, simply measure the height of the shaft against the inside of your leg, starting at your instep.
Second, it is important to know the circumference of the boot. This is the measurement around widest part of the boot shaft.
To determine if the boot will fit properly around your calves, measure around the widest part of your calf where the boot shaft will end, and compare your measurement to the shaft circumference.
