Just okay; they're not that warm and don't stay in one piece for long!
on 22 March 2016
I'll be honest, I've now bought a second pair of these boots, though I class them as only Okay.
Why only okay? The first pair lasted a couple of weeks worth of time (although that included one week straight of dinghy sailing). I didn't use them that hard, and half and half on sandy and rocky beaches. But the velcro strap broke off rather quickly on one and the stitching was also coming apart from second use. They did the job of protecting my feet but are not that warm, so are definitely better in warmer weather. However, they were falling apart from less than 10 uses so I decided to bin them while away.
I bought a second pair because being able to get them rapidly on Amazon Prime, and them being cheap are both good points. You do get what you pay for, admittedly, and I have now also bought another (thicker) pair (which cost twice as much) from another sports product seller because the Thames is cold in winter. The bottoms of the boots are good at protecting your feet, and for that they're worth the money. However, do be prepared that they will fall apart!
Also - weirdly for an item I've bought online - they're a good fit for me (wide-ish feet) which is more than I can say for some pairs I tried on in store elsewhere!
