Foot wear

Post by Vxr 15 »

I'm looking for suitable footwear for when I go out in the rain, i have up to now mainly been wearing wellies or other boots along that line, what is anyone else wearing and what would be a good alternative waterproof solution. Thanks.

Daft question. What is there better than wellies or waders?

There are plenty of adverts on the net for ankle length rubber boots. They can be worn with trousers, or indeed, shorts. I know, I have been out and about lately wearing my Joules Rubber Ankle Boots.

You could try rubber riding boots be they ankle or calf length.

I usually wear shiny black Hunter boots - personal choice. I sometimes wear riding boots or other flat knee high boots, in the winter I have a pair of fur lined riding boots. Entirely a matter of preference, although I rather like the idea of wearing waders in the future.

Since reading this post back in August, I have been musing the topic. The result is that I have just purchased a delightful pair of Aigle fur lined wellington boots for the coming winter season. One of those impulse purchases as they were considerably reduced in a shop I happened to be passing.They will be perfect to combine with a long mackintosh.
