I have been waiting to review these boots for a couple of months since I bought them so that I could wear them in fully and thoroughly test them. It's been hard waiting as I fell in love with them instantly and have hardly taken them off since I first tried them. It took me a week to decide whether or not I should buy them - I first read about them in an article and although they looked and sounded great they were more expensive than any shoe or boot I had previously bought. However, desperate to find something that bridged the gap between welly and ordinary flat soled fashion boot, and wanting to support a local business with a good idea, I took the plunge and invested. They are indeed as advertised- beautifully made, comfortable to wear and totally waterproof. I have since worn them everyday. They slip on easily so are perfect for my constant in and out of the house with children, animals, washing etc. I have worn them on walks around our farm, to the beach, through lots of mud and they still look good. Totally worth investing in and I hope to be wearing these for a long time to come. Incredible service from this lovely company.
