Its time to renew my Le Chameau fishing Wellingtons of 15 years vintage, the only trouble is that about 10 years ago, in a motorbike accident I smashed my right foot and ankle and technically that foot is now a Size 12/13 as opposed to my left foot at size 11.

Anyone esle have a similar problem with differing foot sizes and can offer a bit of help. The one-legged swimmer from Mablethorpe died years ago so I cannot ask him.

May I just ask what justifies the price of the wellies .
Are they for a trout or salmon fishermen, studs on the soles for wading .

It was supposed to be slightly humorous. I tend to use the wellingtons both for gardening, fishing (trout and mainly coarse). They are either leather lined or neoprene. I bough a pair of Le Chameau waders some 25 years ago, from a fishing port near St. Jean de Monts in France and they are absolutely brilliant. I bought them larger for thick socks so not so much of a problem.

Maybe a singles or disabled website . You may be able to find someone with a size 12/13 left foot and a size 11 right one. Would be cheaper sharing the cost.:)

Wise has got some good crocks in various sizes ......seriously ,2 lots of boots in different sizes is a good shout or ask at shoe shops who display boots if you can have old ex display boots as they only put out 1 at a time in some shops
