What great value! They aren't the most stylish or first ...
18 December 2017
what can I say about these boots!! What great value! They aren't the most stylish or first boot you'd think to buy when walking or doing horse duty. But after so many years of buying wife various horse-yard boots and them failing so quickly for one reason or other I persuaded her to try a wellie. She has had wellies before and never objected and loved some of the other versions of those we purchased but again, they just don't last 6 months, a year max! When you are buying footwear £45 - £150+ every 6 months to year it gets a bit tiresome and frustrating for wife or me to be looking for new footwear again and again. I purchased a very thick well known branded boot but my use it occasional compared to the wife who uses hers for horse yard duty, dog walking and even when we trek out walking as she does not like the Military boots I provided her. So, we looked at the reviews and I decided that if these last 3 months it would still work out cheaper than the alternatives we have been buying. 6 months on and still going strong so that has won we me over already. But, she says they fit well for her standard sized 5 foot, not too wide not too narrow, spacious but well fitting. She wears thick socks and they are very comfortable to wear with the boots. With thin 'office socks' they still fit and do not slip so much to cause rub or boot drag. The calf fits my wife well, with space to fit wrapped clothing like your trousers can when wrapping them around your calf to slip into the boot. They are not tight boots. They remain warm with the right socks on according to her and are comfortable in the sole and heel. Waterproof obviously and that is the major factor. Time will tell how the joins and material lasts but with the rubber being soft and pliable but clearly hard wearing still is what offers its fabulous comfort, long lasting attributes. Why not, Dunlop have been experts in rubber for such a long time and always provide good footwear, even their budget value wellies carry the same reputation.
