Real Wide Calf Rain Boots - Widest Fit in the US. Perfect for watching soccer matches, country walks or just getting on with jobs in the backyard, these extra wide calf rain boots will fit like a glove for anybody with 16 to 23 inch calves.
I'm so excited to have my first pair of tall rubber boots. I've suffered through wet outdoor activities for years because I couldn't find a pair of tall rubber boots that fit. I'm looking forward to showing off my beautiful purple boots the next time I lay tracks at my dog training group's tracking events.
I was a little concerned that the "extra wide" ankle and foot might make the boots too sloppy for the kind of walking I do when tracklaying, which is over hill and dale, through tall vegetation, water crossings, etc. but these boots are comfortable and seem to be rugged enough to handle it. They'll get a trial by fire next Spring if not still this year if the weather holds.
I did order my normal athletic shoe size, and the fit is just right.
These are really nice. I in my 40s and I’ve always been large, so I’ve never had rain boots before (not even as a kid). The purple is nice, though I confess I really wish I could’ve gotten a pair with stars!
I bought the boot liners to go with, and they’re going to be great in the winter. I’m in the PNW, so I’m psyched not to have wet shoes all winter. Ive been wearing these outside every day since they arrived.
They fit well. I wear a women’s 10 wide, and bought size 10 wellies. Plenty of room for double socks (or socks plus boot liners), but not so sloppy in the foot with just one pair. I think a size 9 would’ve been much too small.
I like that there are buckled on both sides of the calf so they fit more evenly and naturally. The buckles are a little floppy/flimsy looking and I’m worried they may not last long. Also, with large calves, the inside buckles rub against each other, and make it a little hard for me to walk, plus they come unbuckled. I’m thinking about swapping the inner buckles for some elastic.
It’s been a couple weeks now, and they’re still off-gassing (the smell like rubber/chemicals), which I don’t care for (it makes me a little ill because I’m sensitive to everything), but I think it’s only a matter of time before that goes away.
The quality is great. For the tall pair, the ankles were too wide for me. The return process didn't include pre-paid shipping, and rain boots are heavy. I'm taking two stars for the inconvenience and cost of return shipping. I'll look for shorter boots elsewhere.
Shoe size runs bigger than I'm used to; I should have ordered a size down. The width of the boot is perfect, so is the calf width. I love they're adjustable in the calf! It makes it super easy to put them on and take them off, plus I don't have to worry so much about edema (swelling in legs).
I love my new boots! Great quality, so cute and super comfortable. A must have in your shoe collection!
