They are:
gin cheap as chips, like £40 or something.
gin really satisfyingly knee length for people who don’t like a calf-length knee high boot.
gin all fleecy inside with really good grip for muppets like me who fall over in the slightest film of ice
gin also in grey.

I swear, I’m seriously considering buying another spare pair- I never do this.

Good old Debenhams!

They're lovely - but I won't be ordering any, as I know I'd only get the zip about one-third of the way up <sigh>

They are cheap because they aren't real leather, presumably? Do they feel like they'd be durable though?

MedicinalGin Wed 13-Dec-17 19:01:43

They’re not real leather, no- realistically, I won’t be wearing them next winter probs. However, they do feel really solid and sturdy - for the price anyway! It’s not very clear in the pics but there are two elastic panels at the back (either side of a central seam) so they do stretch quite a bit. I just love them- hope you all do too!

I could guarantee that they wouldn't do up par my calves I'm the reason calf high boots exist

These look lovely but has anyone with big calves bought them? How do they fit?

Anniegleave1 Fri 15-Dec-17 01:22:03

Are they true to size ?

ShirleyPhallus Fri 15-Dec-17 01:26:57

Oh nooooo these are so ugly! Not the best boots ever! (tho i am delighted you’ve found them for yourself Op smile)

BigPinkOrchid Fri 15-Dec-17 17:50:45

I love the look of these, but they sit a bit strange on my legs...they seem to fit snugly on my ankles and then sag a bit leaving a strange bulge just above the ankle on each leg. So I'll be sending mine back.

They feel lovely on though, nice and snug and cosy. And I have big calves (16 inches around widest bit) and struggle to get boots that I can get on, but these fit nicely with some stretch left in them.
