Oh Hunter Wellies, I have lusted after you for at least a year now and you are finally mine
. Living in the midwest, one isn't privy to the fashions of major metro areas and though I had salivated at many pictures of Hunter Wellies in the past, I just wasn't sure if my area was really ready for rainboot-wearing little old me. But once I saw the MAJOR deal on Wellies on
Anyhoo, the other concern I had was about boot circumference. I have weirdly thick calves for a petite gal and when I measured, the circumference of my calves were identical to the boot so I was concerned that it'd be tight squeeze. Turns out this concern was unfounded and
the boots fit fine on my calves, they're even a little loose so that I can wear jeans or super thick socks if I wanted.
There is one fit problem though... The boot is a little too tall where the shaft hits at the bottom of my knee making it a little awkward in both the walking and appearance departments. Now I really LOVE these boots and for the steal I got them at, I am dog-goned determined to make these work. So...I ordered shoe lifts. I am 98% sure that if I could just elevate my heels just a teeny, tiny bit, it will be enough to bring it under my knee for a less awkward look.
Whilst I wait upon my shoe lifts, take a look at the pictures and tell me what YOU think. Keep 'em, return 'em, or see what happens when the shoe lifts arrive?
