The Best Wide Width Rain Boots for 2020
Updated: Oct 11
aka Fall is officially here, you need some rain boots!
The weather is wild y’all! We are in a crazy, never ending heat wave here in LA, but Colorado just went from heat wave to snow storm in a single day! This means fall is coming, at least for some of you. LA doesn't cool off until October or November, so I’m still sweating and not at all ready for pumpkin spice anything!
However, I did live in Boston for a number of years and I remember the enjoyment of the air cooling off in September. I also remember needing to start covering my feet, boo! Seriously though, my friends in Boston said they tracked the seasons by my footwear. When I started to wear socks, they could officially say it was cold, and as soon as I made an appearance in flip flops, they knew it was spring. My love affair with flip flops has lasted longer than any of my relationships!
What this means is that for some of you, it's time to get some rain boots - or wellies - if you will. These seem to be some of the hardest foot coverings to find for our larger bodies. Our calves grow with the rest of us, and rain boots tend to be one calf size fits all (and we all know the myth of one size fits all)!
I’ve done some deep digging to find the best reviewed rain boots to cover your fabulous calves and keep your toes dry for the season! And because a 15" circumference is not really going to cut it, I'm only highlighting boots that have 18" or more.
At some point after I moved back to LA and stopped looking for boots, some very smart folks realized that this was a real issue. They created an entire brand dedicated to plus size rain boots for women. They have short boots, tall boots, plain boots, boots with fun designs, and some of their boots go up to 23" in circumference! This is where you will find the widest variety and most options to keep your feet dry.
