Review: Wide Fit Boots
with JD Williams

Hi folks. JD Williams got in touch with me recently to ask if I'd be interested in reviewing an item from their wide fitting footwear collection. I, of course, jumped at the opportunity to try some calf length boots; perfect for winter. The collection has pretty much every kind of footwear you could imagine in a wide variety of sizes (sizes 3-10 in 'E' fitting boots, for example), even slippers (which I'll also be blogging about very soon)! I was really surprised at the prices, too; I imagined that a decent pair of boots would set me back around £80.00, so it was great to see that many of the styles I liked were around £50.00.

I chose the Legroom Quilted Hi Leg Boots (£55.00) in the 'Curvy Plus' calf width and 'E' fitting, in a size 8 (my usual size). I measured the widest part of my calf (with a piece of string and a ruler) at approximately 500mm; in an 8E this is the exact measurement of the 'Super Curvy' calf width so I went for the 'Curvy Plus' which is 534mm. I'm pleased to report that they're a perfect fit and very comfortable! They sit a comfortable distance below my knee, as you can see (ish, sorry!).

Sometimes shoes with a heel (yes, even a little one like this) cause my feet to ache but I haven't had any problems with these and I've worn them a lot. They go well with anything; in this outfit I am wearing my Elvi coatigan (£60.00, sizes 16/18-24/26), Primark leggings (£3.00; I'm a size 24 and wear a size 20), old Asos Curve dress (similar here) and a leopard head necklace (not a real one!) I picked up in the New Look sale a while ago.

I've since worn these boots with many different outfits on a variety of occasions. They're still comfy and I've had lots of compliments on them. They've also kept my legs dry on many occasions, today included! Honestly, I can't fault them. I know that a lot of people are looking for boots that fit bigger calves at the moment, so I hope you'll find this review useful :)


  1. The boots are great but that coat is AMAZING! xx

    1. Haha I agree, I love it ;) I was tempted to get the black one when they had a discount but I didn't :( x
