Wide Calf Rain Boots

Being a Northwest girl my whole life, I live in my fair share of rain.  Portland is known for it's year round wet weather and if you don't have a good pair of rain boots you are certain to soak through your shoes constantly.

I was recently approached to review a pair of wide calf rain boots by a small UK company that is now offering their wide calf rain boots through a US website www.jileonrainboots.com!  I have to be honest I was a little hesitant at first because every single time I have looked for ANY kind of boot,  my calves have always been too wide for them.  I really didn't think this would be any different,  even with them telling me they had adjustable straps to accommodate wider calves.   Here are the stock photos from the site that I was looking at.

When the package showed up and I saw this glorious pair of dark purple rain boots I said a prayer to the fashion gods.  They fit!! They actually fit!  I opened up the adjustable straps to the fullest they would go and I even had room to spare!  This has never happened before so I was beyond thrilled.  The site says they go up to 21" but they actually must go beyond that because my calves are 24"-25" where the top of the boot is.

So very excited to share this great new with my fellow fat calf followers I decided to pair them with a fun little spring outfit to show how wide my legs are and how they fit.  I pulled the adjustable straps rather tight but there was much more room available in the leg of the boot.  Also, not only do I have wide calves, I have wide feet too.  These slid on perfectly and were not tight on the foot.  I really can't explain how happy I am with these and how much I would recommend checking them out if you are in the market for a pair of rain boots that are actually wide calf.

*All information posted here is my honest review on the product and I was not paid in way to promote this item beyond being given the boots for my honest opinion.
