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.

  1. That's awesome. I'm in the UK, and I've seen loads of plus size bloggers wearing these, but none of them had calves like mine. Seeing you in them gives me faith that they'll fit my legs. Whoooooo!
