A rather unseasonal Fit Flop boot query!

I have several pairs of Fit Flop sandals and 2 pairs of short boots - all are supremely comfortable and I LOVE them! I'd love to get a pair of the long boots, too, but I have the dubious pleasure of possessing HUGE calves! Do any of you know how generously-sized they are? They do give measurements on their website but I'd like some anecdotal advice from the 'experts', too, please. Many thanks.

yes, they are bigger than average.
I'm a size 5 to 6 with 39cm calves with Duo boots and size 5 fit flop long boots fit perfectly.
Hope that helps x

they are huge.

Oh, thanks so much for the wonderfully helpful replies! Looks like I'm off to flash the cash!!

Sorry, one last query! I really like the tall leather 'Superboot' - are these huge?! The Mukluk long boots look slightly shorter but maybe wider - I just don't like them so much! Thanks for your forebearance!

I have the tall suede superboots. I have massive calves and I can get jeans under them!

Thanks, Fordie77. It's looking promising - I assume the leather superboots are the same proportions?! Fingers crossed. x

Is there a particular reason you need to buy them now? They'll be doing different ones for next season - might be worth waiting - they might be more what you want

I've seen some with over £70 off and I've been hankering after them for months! They are such a classic style that I'd be delighted to be wearing them for years to come - I'm hardly a fashionable beast so really don't care about following trends!!!

faustina Sun 29-May-11 17:35:06

not so much to do with fashion trends. I don't know about the leather ones, but the suede pair I have were a bit welly boot straight up and down. I wore them loads because they were so comfortable, but if they bring out some with a bit more style this year I'll buy those. Seventy quid discount is good!!!

doglover Sun 29-May-11 18:00:03

They're ordered! With a discount code, I actually paid £103 - sooooo pleased!!!

They've probably sold out of the good sizes and colours but Boots had some Fitflop boots with pretty good discounts if anyone else is doing a bit of unseasonal shopping....
