After reading reviews of these boots on here, I ordered a pair in a size smaller than I usually wear
BIG mistake. My toes were cramped even without thick socks and I had blisters the size of Greenland within 5 minutes
So I re-ordered them in my usual shoe size and they are lovely. They feel really solid and good quality. I use them to walk my dogs every day and although they do slip slightly around the heels they don't rub enough to give me a blister and are still comfortable
I found them quite high to begin with and the top of the boot felt a bit strange but now I've worn them a few days and they've softened a bit I don't notice this any more.
I decided on this type of boot as I got fed up of all the faff of cleaning and retreating lace up walking boots. They are really easy to clean and I will be using them for jobs in the garden as well as walking and doing agility with my dogs.
So far they have been waterproof (so long as you don't try to clean them with a hose and squirt water through the size elastic) but I don't wear them in really wet, muddy conditions as I have my wellies for that.
A very good buy in the end, once I got the right size!
