The Big Boot Challenge Revisited - Simply Be

One thing I find extremely difficult to buy is knee boots. Over the last few years more and more brands have taken the plunge and stocked wide and extra wide calf boots.

Last year I was lucky enough to review a variety of different wide calf boots that were on the market.

This winter there seems to be an even wide choice of boots available to women with wide calves. 

The first pair that I am looking at are these beauties from Simply Be.

I ordered these boots with the intention of returning them once I had tried them on and taken pictures. However, once I had tried them on it quickly became clear they weren't going to get returned!

I ordered the Extra Curvy Plus in an EEE fitting. The calf sizes on these boots is 556mm, which is 55cm. I ordered the bigger calf fitting with the hope that I could tuck my skinny jeans in to them.

I can easily fit jeans in to them. I could have actually tucked jeans in to the next size down, which fits up to 522mm.

As you can see from the first picture they are slightly baggy around the ankle to that only due to the fact that the EEE fitting is very very generous.

For £65 these boots really are value for money. They look great will dresses, jeggings and skinny jeans.

  1. Very hard to get ones that come right up to your knee. I managed to get one pair from Evans last year and that was it.

  2. I wish i could fit my fat calves in Evans boots :-(

  3. I have these boots coming from Simply Be soon (hopefully!) and I'm nervous I've ordered the wrong size! My calves are about 488mm and I ordered the Curvy Plus I think, they go up to 500mm. Also just got standard width cos my feet aren't particularly wide. I'd hate to have to start sending them back, it's such a pain. Especially in Ireland!

  4. I have another pair from leg room in a standard width and they are fine. Simply be wide fit are very generous! You wont be disappointed with them! they are awesome!

  5. Yes, these are the ones I want! They look fab on you. x
