Evans' boots seem to be pretty wide at the calf. I have been suffering from swelling ankles and feet (seems to be hormonal fluid retention, and/or may be related to my blood clots) for a few years now, so thought I would try Evans for shoes as they do various width fittings. While there I tried on a few pairs of Boots and they all seemed very wide at the calf. They often have sales, too.
I really appreciate it! My calves seem to have just recently ballooned. I don't *think* it's weight, as when standing they do feel firm as if it's muscle gain, however in saying that, socks etc do leave indents in my ankles so it could possibly be swelling. I know my Mom has Lymphodema and her legs are terribly swollen so it's possible I may have it and it's just undiagnosed.
I checked Evans - they have a pair I love the look of but the thought of paying £60 for 1 pair of boots horrifies me. I know it shouldn't as they're likely good quality and would last me a few years but I just have such a hard time justifying it when I struggle financially as it is. I know I buy from MAC but usually it's only a couple of things to keep the price down. I dunno, I'll have to go in and try some on - I checked their website for sizing but if that sizing is correct I don't think they'd fit me. I'm a size 7 shoe, but it looks like I'd need an extra wide fit for my calves, the problem is - I measured my calves and I'd need the size 9 for the calf fitting but the 7 for my actual foot. Not sure how that would work. Lol. I'll definitely check for sales though.
