OIL RESISTANT OUTSOLE
SLIP RESISTANT OUTSOLE
I bought these for a friend's 50th birthday present as she liked them but couldn't justify spending that amount on herself for wellies. I can't say how they perform as in comfort and durability but I will say that they arrived within two days of me purchasing them, well packaged with no issues.
I've been a size 11 for 30 years so I was shocked that these pinched the sides and top of my feet so much they gave me cramp - also hard to get on and off. Removing insole and wearing thin socks didn't help much. Length of footbed was good though. Not the lightest boot as there is a chunky sole. Reluctant to now try size 12 because of cost of return postage.
I have worked with horses on a daily basis for over 20 years and have owned and worn every type / make of Wellington boot that you can imagine. Including, but not limited to; Ariat, Le Chameau, Muck Boot Co, Hunter, Aigle, Caldene, Barbour, Toggi, Gumleaf. I even had a pair of really plain Dunlop wellies, which were uncomfortable and cold. But, they didn't rot or leak unlike ALL of the other boots. So, I decided to try these Dunlop boots as they looked like they would be warm and comfortable. That is an understatement. They are toastie warm and super comfortable. The neoprene leg section is felxible and warm. The boot grips and cups my heel on the inside and doesn't slip like all other wellies. If you've worn wellies a lot you will know that when your foot slips inside the boot it wears out your socks and causes blisters. I had my reservations about buying them because they looked quite chunky and not feminine, like say a Le Chameau boot. Having worn them for several weeks now, I don't really care what they look like because my feet are thanking me. I hope they are rot-proof like my previous Dunlop boots. I have no hesitation in recommending these boots.
I thought they has a zip at the back, but it is just design and not function. That aside, they do slip on and off fairly easily and are very comfortable. No complaints.
