I know IABU to be mightily pissed off. I know I know, in the great scheme of things it's not the end of the world...but despite being normal build I apparently have massive calves and have never found the perfect boots until now. And then I get ONE in the box? And they are now apparently sold out. FFS.
I have added a link, just...y'know, in case you've ordered them and don't like them. Size 4 by the way. Sigh.

How are you at hopping?

They are very nice!
I would be putting in a big complaint to their customer services team (next not the boots) surely the other one has to turn up somewhere or they can do a stock check in all their stores and find the odd or even another pair

Well that's annoying isn't it

Very annoying, but keep checking daily as I’ve found with Next that often things do come back into stock

I'm great at hopping. Apparently the corporate bigwigs are not too keen sadly! Customer service were very nice, but said there's no way of knowing where the other boot is, probably on display in a random store somewhere. And they are sold out in the rest of the country. FML.

Mr Magnolia has only one boot.....

I'll keep checking Babyjunglesafari, but she said they've only recently come back into stock (i know...i've been waiting!) so it's unlikely they'll be back again sad

I bought a nice pair of knee high boots in the sales a few years ago, in a neighbouring city that a) I could get my feet in to and b) could zip up on the calves. (An achievement for very wide size 2 feet and muscular calves) One was a little more snug than the other, but I thought maybe the wider one had been on display and been broken in a bit more and the other would stretch to match it...
After a couple of wears where one pinched my toes and the other was slopping on the heels, I realised that they were the same length but different width fittings. I have to wear one standard sock and one hiking sock to make them fit. I just didn't have the time to take them back and all the knee highs would have been sold out by then. sad

That's not on OP, I'd be hopping mad angry

Shall I have a look in all the local next stores (there's 4 I can think of) and see if I can find it? grin
