My old wellies sprung a leak so I need replacements.. Having lived an active life in sport my calfs are very large..Jileon Wellies seemed the answer..
I was wrong..They work in that they are waterproof… but I do not find them comfortable..The construction is too soft, they flip and flop about as I walk.. They are too loose in the foot and ankle.. Yes my calfs fit in them but the consequence is the foot and ankle are too wide.. I dislike the soft Jelli construction..I cannot in all honesty recommend them to anyone..I am ordering a replacement pair of wellingtons from a French manufacturer..These Jelli’s will go in the shed as a spare pair just in case or a reserve if friends need wellies when they visit. ….Good try Jileon but its a thumbs down from me.
Good to find a quality pair of wellies that you can fit to your calf size. Really pleased with them and the old saying is true - “you get what you pay” and although expensive they are well worth it.
The boots fit beautiful around the calf and can be adjusted
They are very comfortable to wear once they are on
However they are tight around the top of the foot and ankle to get on and a full work out to get off
Even so I would definatly recommend the boots they are very good quality
Never been a fan of wellingtons due to the fit, I’m blessed with large calf’s! However over the last few months with the ground so wet and muddy I decided to take the plunge
There really comfortable the fit is excellent and while there not “walking“ boots they come a close second
They fit really nicely round the calf but the ankle is very narrow, meaning it’s difficult to get my feet in the boots. They’re comfortable when on, but it’s a pain having to heave them on and off.
Expensive for wellies so hope they last a really long time. They also stank to the high heavens when they arrived but are ok now.
