I've now been wearing these boots for about 5 years. I wear them beating, shooting, deer stalking, and for walking the dog. They're warm and waterproof, and on the odd occaision that I clean them it takes virtually no effort. Really good neoprene boots, and still cheaper than the basic model of another, more famous French Welly with a camel for a mascot.
I was after a decent pair of boots for countryside walking, places where I wouldn't need hiking boots but had the convenience of not needing to clean up afterwards. These boots are very comfortable for general walking and haven't leaked so far. As with all wellington's they are not so great when it comes to steep slopes as they are not as supportive as a proper boot. A reasonably snug foot is essential and these fit me pretty well.
I have tried all sorts of neoprene boots in the past - mostly much more expensive than these - all split sooner or later. I've only had these a few weeks and so far so good. The rubber feels different to other makes, it seems more flexible and I hope means less likely to split. Certainly no signs of anything yet! The grip is excellent and the neoprene lining means feet stay warmer than in ordinary wellies although these are not as warm as some I have tried. These boots are very comfortable to wear and fit snugly round the calf so nothing gets in! I am very pleased so far and would have given 5 stars if I could predict how long they last. If they are still going strong in six months I will amend this review! The 2 year guarantee is a huge bonus too.
