Cos they're built to last. As I said, I've been wearing mine regularly for 20 years. Can't remember how much they cost, but if they were 20 back then, that works out at 1 a year. Pretty cheap I'd say.

If I could pay them off at 1 a year then great, unfortunately they cost half a weeks income, so it's a case of, shall I feed the kids or buy boots, kids or boots, kids or boots.......... Wink

EDIT: Just seen the Dubarry ones now, arrghhh, why do I have Champagne tastes and a Brown Ale bank account?

Just taken my leaky wellies back to B&Q! They were GREAT!

Despite not having a receipt, and thewellies no longer being available, they refunded my money in total, no questions asked!

Nice to have good services for a change - - well done B&Q!

Bought a pair from my local independent shoe shop as i need to try before I buy - - - let's see how these do Smile

Not quite wellies, but I've just bought a pair of these and they're very warm and comfy. They're snow boots really but good for when it's pretty squelchy underfoot.

It's like a tin-foil hat, only it's designed for Aussies...

Quick up date

Well the Hunters have arrived and I am really happy. They are very comfortable and I love the height as I can get muddy/wet nearly up to my knees without getting wet. I agree that you can feel a bit through the sole when walking on rough ground but now I have added an insulated inner sole it is barely noticiable.

For the bar I simply put my trousers over the boots and nobody is any the wiser Smile.

Thanks for all of your tips and advice. Cheers, Raife

I also ordered a pair of these for other activities. Not bad 15 delivered. Mind you I did order them about 2 weeks ago and they still haven't arrived! Cheers, Raife
