    Okay, I work in a farm and apparently my calves are too big for, like, every welly ever. Like, I've tried the style simplybe have and they aren't wide enough, and even the special 'wide fit' ones aren't wide enough for my calves. Am I just supposed to never wear wellies?

    My calves are about 44cm/17 inches. Any advice, fellow giant leg people?

    I've tried those, I have the same issue with them. All of my leg is really thick and even short wellies wont go over my lower legs.

    The great white north, eh?
    Could you slit the back a part way down them bind them up with colorful duct tape to make them look kind of cool?

    That's what I usually do, Tad, but somehow they always end up leaking then. I don't know how?

    And thank you Funtastic, I will check that out. =)
