My first choice of footwear in a morning is usually a pair of wellies and we head off to our local park for a 20 minute dog walk to start our day.
As seasons change, so does the ground and you’ll find you need you a good sturdy, waterproof pair that ideally keep your tootsies warm.
Well, over a couple of years ago, I invested in some Hunter neoprene lined ones; note I had child size feet so I picked a kid’s style setting me back a little bit less at around £45.
Feeling pleased at my saving, I soon found out that while traipsing in the snow, my feel still never got warm, as a neoprene lining suggested would prevent, even while wearing additional welly liners. Then three months went by and each boot started to split near the arches. I exchanged them through amazon and found the replacement pair did exactly the same. I would never buy a pair again but have put up with their leaking while trying to look out for a new pair.
I also made a faux pas but ordering some new Crocs wellies on eBay because they looked lovely and light, but they didn’t fit due to small fittings.
I’m already loving the saving and the Hunters will now be going in the bin once and for all. The Quechua boots come with their own shoe insert liner which is optional, although once removed, there becomes a lot of room in the boot.
As for Hunters, I really don’t see what the fuss is about any more and it seems evident now they’ve been bought out by another company, the quality isn’t there as some rave on about.
Here’s to dry feet & cosy wellibobs!
