I think I am decided on a pair of these merrell boots but I just wanted to check one last time that they will fit over my tree trunk calves.
I am 5ft2, and currently a 14/16 but because of my short-arse-ness my legs have always been chunky, even when slimmer. I tried on wellies the other day and they got stuck so I was wondering if these would work for me.
I have these in a size 5.... they are a mere 10" tall. Have just stretched out the top of mine and got 16" so I think you would be fine. I got mine here...a wee bit cheaper and I LOVE mine - you will be warm, cosy and dry!
Weeeelllll, I'm a 4.5 but bought a 5 - they're great with plenty of socks but I can't help feeling a 4 might have beenbetter done......would have made life so much easier! Wish I could have tried on in RL.........I'm a bit of a perfectionist.....always looking for the Holy Grail
I have these in graphite too. I think you would need serious cankles to have a problem with their width as they are pretty low.
Ref sizing, I am a 6.5 and regularly buy a 7 boot. My 7s fit OK but really need another pair of socks. Not a problem in this weather but agree with hobbit that you may find a 4 OK. <Hides huge feet from petite-footed fellow threaders>
I got mine from this website. Really recommend them, quick delivery and (pretty impressively for boots) free returns/exchanges. They only seem to have brown 4s left though so exchanges might not be an option anyway.
anton just ordered them from there - thanks. I went with them/brown as they were the cheapest i could get. As you say the returns policy is so good, if they do not fit it looks like i can more easily get 5s than 4s, so can go elsewhere in need be!
and elsewhere 4s keep disappearing from under my nose..... so just went for it.
Update: After ordering (and the money leaving my account ) I had an email saying that there had been a stocktaking error and they did not in fact have the suggestion of ordering he boots. I asked for a refund rather than something else from their site , obviously!
I nearly cried .
BUT I have ordered them form Taunton Leisure now (in graphite this time) and they have been dispatched! Hurrah.
And I wore them out today - took them for a trial in the snow. Came back with lovely toasty toes!
They are supposed to be my Christmas present from my parents but I am sure my parents want me to have dry does in the lead up to Christmas .
The only way a 5 would have been better for me would have been more space to accommodate my fat legs. they do fits it but it is a squeeze and these is no room for my jeans (no skinny jeans/leggings here cos of aforementioned fatness). The 4s are just fine though, and as I have narrow feet there is a wee bit of slippage at the back even in the 4s but comfortably so iyswim.
