Ayla: Leather Boots that Even YOU Can Fit Into
To all the women of the world who have calves bigger than your forearm:
I, like you, have pretty substantially sized calves...and always have - from at least when I was a senior in high school and the captain of the wrestling team took notice and exclaimed, "Wow! I wish I had your calves!" Now, this isn't usually taken as a compliment, but hell, that's how I took it. And through the years I have had various men take notice, in a good (maybe too good) way. So why is it that the good bootmakers of Earth only make tall leather boots for skinny minnies? I have only been able to wear short boots or stretchy boots, BUT I WANT TO WEAR TALL BLACK LEATHER BOOTS! And I promised to throw a tantrum until I got my way.
And then along came Ayla Boots - "Leaders in calf fitting boots," I kid you not. And the tantrums ceased.
Eight styles available in whole sizes 7 through 12 can be ordered online. Just input your size, calf measurement (widest part of your calf in inches), and preferred color, and you're on your way to owning a pair of boots that fit! Also, none cost more than $189, so get on the bandwagon now before the owners get wise and start charging more!
The style pictured above, known as "Milano" are the perfect answer to the too-narrow, too tight, too high, too expensive styles of late. I ordered a 9 and an 8 to determine which is better - the jury is still out. I guess I wish they had half-sizes because the 8.5 would likely be my best bet. However, I have to say that either one fits me better than most others I have attempted to try on during the past couple of years.
I think I may even get another pair! Stay tuned...
