FAQS: Extra wide calf wellington boots
Which are the best wellies for wide calves?
There are various brands of wellington boots available that cater to wider calves; however, our personal picks at Webury are the ranges from Aigle and Le Chameau. Aigles offer the Parcours range, which is unisex, while Le Chameau’s Vierzon boots are adjustable, so you can make them as snug or loose as you wish.
Are Aigle wellies good for wide calves?
With Aigle wellies, you’ll find that the calf size increases as the foot size do, so the larger foot sizes already have a wider calf fit to match. However, we always recommend checking the size guide to ensure you get the right fitting wellington for your feet.
Are Le Chameau wellies good for wide calves?
The adjustable gusset on the Le Chameau styles offers flexibility around the calf fitting, with women’s boots built on a ladies’ last for a feminine fit with the versatility of the adjustable side gusset. For a really premium option, have a look at the Chasseur boots, available in 2 calf fittings in the men’s style, with a full-length zip that makes getting them on and off a doddle.
Le Chameau has standard calf sizes for each style, which on most boots is 38cm for the women’s sizes and 41cm, 43cm or 44cm for the men’s. The adjustable gusset adds up to 12cm of extra room for when you need it.
