Having bought several pairs of Wellingtons over the last few years, all of which have either split or perished, there was a certain degree of resignation in buying yet another pair. Obviously, it's too early to say how they'll stand up in the months and (hopefully) years to come - but these are obviously and significantly more rigidly built than the pairs I've owned recently and they feel more hard-wearing.
They're also roomy - in fact feeling much bigger than a size 11. That means I can easily use boot warmers during the cold months of the year. We spend a lot of time in a farming environment and so my boots get daily wear, which means I don't expect them to last as long as I would if they got normal domestic use - but, so far, they are much better than those I've owned in the last five or six years.
I happily recommend them based on my current experience of them.
I bought these on October 2 last year - they split in the sole this morning (March 5). As I said, they get used every day (sometimes twice a day) - and I do mean every day. So I used them at least 154 times and probably closer to 200. If you're a once-a-week user, then that equates to 3+ years of wear. That's not bad, really.
