Not quite what I'd hoped for
on 22 December 2014
I already bought some grey Stingers last year which are heavy duty, comfy in a sloppy way and more or less waterproof. These Valery Lo's are slightly narrower at the toe end but not as chunky/heavyweight as my others and not waterproof. This is not in the description so I knew that was the case.They are well made and warm as you'd expect. I chose Emu again because I know they are durable.
Maybe this Valery Lo is the newer style, but the buttons are plastic which I was disappointed in - thought they'd be wood or even leather for the price! Also, unbelievably for this style of boot, the right boot rubs at the heel and ankle - I've had to wear thick plasters when going out - I do alot of walking. Maybe this is temporary until they stretch a bit - hope so! All in all they are not as good as I anticipated for the price, but I'm keeping them as it's the style and colour I wanted.
