I would like to join the funky welly brigade but fear my feet are too big.

I live in wellies. Do school run in them, shop in them etc... My faithful green hunters have had it, the soles are worn through and now leak.

My feet are big, size 10 so I always buy mens boots but I would like some floral ones.

I like these but will they look daft on size 10 feet at the end of long, skinny(ish) legs?

i have always liked the idea of decorative wellies, but i think in practice they don't look too good. i have pretty big feet too (size 8) and would probably go for a single colour. topshop had some dark purple and black ones... sorry, you prob don't want to hear that.

I tend to think they look a bit daft anyway, whatever the size feet. So no, I don't think they'll look any more daft because you have big feet (my, they are quite big aren't they?) and long legs.

They are big but in proportion to the rest of me.

Perhaps I'll just get some aubergine hunters.

I have looked at them with new eyes and realise they are the sort of thing a 5 year old would wear. blush

joules have more grown up but un-boring wellies

[swoon] at your tall, long loveliness.

Now aubergine hunter's sound altogether better. I think bright floral pink best left well alone to be honest.

Or those Joules ones, perhaps, maybe. I am wary of 'fun' items for grown-ups.

But I am un-fun, I fear.

mehgalegs Fri 05-Sep-08 13:36:47

But I'm bored of green

Love the Joules ones but they only go up to an 8.

Aubergine, or Chocolate?

Where are you buying them from? I need welly boots. Can you get them in blue?

Whilst camping I tried to perfect my Kate Moss at Glasto look with a welly/shorts combo. I just got really sore legs. (And am nowt like Kate Moss)

mehgalegs Fri 05-Sep-08 13:38:35

Yes lots of colours here

What's all this about Huntress then? Designed for the variety in a ladies leg?

Which will you get?

mehgalegs Fri 05-Sep-08 17:31:56

Reminds me of a Blackadder sketch " Ah you have a ladies leg..." (Or summink_)

The ladies won't fit my hoofs, only go up to an 8.
