Wide wellies!

Am becoming very exasperated at my failure to find any wellies for my toddler which come any wider than an F fitting. He is a H fitting and the last wellies we bought to try anyway wouldn't go anywhere near! Has anyone used a stockist of wide fit wellies?

I have boys with wide feet and haven't had trouble with wellies.

I think they either came from Mothercare or more recently, DS2 had some from Clarks.

The alternative is to go up a size as they do in shoe shops when they do a fitting and they don't have an H in stock. Seems to help.

My daughter is H and her Hunter wellies are extremely good, and wide in the calf too. From a horsey family, we wouldnt choose any other brand!

DS has very wide and high feet, and wears Kidorable wellies with o problems

Thanks all - I will have a look at those. I hadn't thought of going up a size so that might work

Yes - just go up a size. It's only wellies after all.

Going up a size doesn't always work. I'm trying to get a new pair of wellies for DS. I know he's an H fitting and I reckon probably about a 5.5/6 now (will take him to get properly measured when the back to school madness has died down!) I tried size 6 and even 7s on him yesterday in Mothercare, M&S and Tesco and could get nothing on him.

He has a pair of Dinosaur Hunter shoes which are really wide fitting and they do wellies, so I'll try those if I can't get anything on the high street.

Those Kiddorable ones are lovely, but £13 for a pair of wellies?! Yikes!
