Jileon wide calf wellies*

Hi everyone,

I don't know about you, but I've lost count of the number of times I've pottered along on walks in the country or by the beach and gazed enviously at those lucky souls with colourful wellies - some even managing to tuck their jeans into them. For years I've had to make do with ankle wellies that are no good for puddle jumping (trust me - I've tried).

But - no more - thanks to Jileon wide calf wellies. Jileon sell some amazing wellies for adults and children in a variety of colours and sizes. Their extra wide fit hard wearing wellies in a gorgeous chocolate* have made me a very happy bunny indeed.

Very happy - can you tell?

I love the colour of these. I'm not a real flowery person so these were perfect. Neutral enough to wear with most colours and not too dark to wear in the summer.

The sole are heavy duty and with enough grip to safely navigate the muddiest of paths. There are straps on the sides and back to adjust to your calf width. I didn't fully tighten the back ones so they look a bit gappy in some of the pictures.

They even come in their own little carry bag. 

I wore straight leg jeans in these picture with a pair of socks as well. It did mean there was a bit of bunching up around the ankle area so maybe next time a pair of slim leg trousers, jeggings or something similar would be better. I normally take a 7 in boots, and these were true to size but I wouldn't be able to wear any thick socks so maybe in the future an 8 would work as well.

But look - wellies with jeans tucked in! It may seem a little thing - but it's the little things that matter.

Thanks for reading

  2. They look perfect- and you look so happy 💜
    I've always struggled with Wellies - how are they so tight!! All wellies should come with an adjustable bit
