As us girls (and guys!) with chunky calves know, buying wellies or indeed any kind of boot is nigh on impossible. Even smaller calves with decent room to tuck trousers in, is quite limiting.
I want to sing from the roof top about Jileon (www.jileon.com) extra wide calf wellies which expand… and expand… and expand leaving plenty of room for calves AND tucking room with up to 50 cm wide calf.
With a double gusset design on both sides, the Jileon wellie gives extra room that your regular Hunters and Le Chameau boots can’t offer.
The best thing about the whole buying experience from Jileon is that each product has its own measurements listed so you know at a glance whether you are a standard fit or wide for each item. A huge bonus when trying to navigate the very tricky field of finding wide calf boots.
I personally spend a lot of time outdoors in the mud and snow so to finally have a pair of full length boots that offer me warmth, stability AND waterproof protection is just amazing. Priced at a very reasonable £49.99 they offer a selection of colours for men and womens tastes a like including floral and spotty!

I haven’t had the opportunity to test these bad boys out in snow and too much mud as the weather is only just turning but they faired very well plodging in the shoreline at the beach, in the rocks in the river and in shallow muddy fields. Oh the things I do for you lot for the sake of a review!

Available online, direct from Jileon, I fully recommend their great range, from standard fit all the way up to wide calf fit.

I have another review coming soon for some beautiful olive green wellies that are also wide fit. These beautiful blue ones just make me stand out too much when I’m out in the fields… something that defeats the point of me being there!
