Top Customer Reviews
After several weeks of walking the dog daily during some of the worst weather that we've had this year it turns out that these are about the best pair of wellington boots that I've ever bought!
Often when you buy wellingtons you'll find that the sole is a bit thin and the grip isn't very good - these have a good meaty sole that will last for years.
The uppers are well made from good quality rubber and offer enough flex to be comfortable.
Lord knows with the weather we've being having recently you need a good pair of wellington boots, and these are about the best that you'll buy at any price.
So far these have proved to be perfectly good and there is no evidence of their cheapness.
The tread on the sole is deep and grips well in soft ground (what they were intended for) but can be a little slippy on a smooth surface like wet wood. The sole isn't all that shock absorbing and you would start to feel the steps if you walked on solid ground for any length of time (but normally you wouldn't be doing this in Wellingtons). However the size is generous enough for you to wear a second thick pair of socks which helps mitigate this.
The boots are well insulated and I was able to stand in water and hardly noticed a change in temperature.
After four years of moderate use one of the boots developed a tiny hairline crack in the sole which gets my foot wet if I stand in water. The boots are fine for dry-land use. (I bought a new pair).
They are nicely built, and strong, so they won't split too easily, and they do a good job. They fit nicely and are not too bulky/baggy around the calf.
Only negative is when they are new, they do smell of rubber... big time, at least mine did. I put them into an under stairs cupboard, and when I opened the door the smell was strong. They smell less over time. I wouldn't let this stop you from buying them, as I'm sure most boots are the same.
Update - the person I gave them to used them for just 5 months before they split right open across the sole. Complete waste of money
They are great quality and I would have happily paid more in a shop for them, they look like they will definately last a good few winters!!
My advice -
If you wear wellies everyday and use them 24/7 while working etc, then shell out a bit more, get something a bit more stylish, comfy and durable etc and consider it a necessary investment.
If, like me, you need them once a year throughout the bad weather etc, then go for these. They are forgiving on the feet (unlike some), they are sturdy, will last a while and keep the rain and snow out - at a great price.
I am a woman with wide feet, i purchased a size 6 my normal size, they are a perfect fit. Wellies you normally buy a size larger and men's sizes are often on the larger side. so i would imagine most gents would find these a bit snug and better of going at least a size up from there normal shoe size.
Yes they are a bit stinky, but my dad's dunlops are, it's because they are rubber and does it matter when you are on a walk or working etc, it will soon go!
6 months on and a quick update.... Still fantastic. Don't smell at all, very comfortable and show no sign of wear. A brilliant welly.
January 2013... A year and a half on they have sprung a leak :( good going tho considering the £25 pair i had brought for me leaked afer 2 weeks.
