I bought these just in time for the hottest driest period of UK weather in years! Eventually though, it broke and these came into their own. The usual brilliant service from Woodlore started with a phone call with regards to the size. I normally in wellies, take a 10, which is a size larger than these, which was out of stock. So I rang them to see what was happening with new stock. The subject of size came up and I was assured these would be fine. Because I could send them back I took a punt and they are perfect in the sizing. They are well made and feel a solid construction. The zips are very positive when fastening and unfastening, and they don't slip down. I don't get the little strip of rubber that flips across the zip, but it's there and fastens securely, so I use them! The treads are very well made and grip well. I've used them walking the dog across fields and tracks as well as normal footpaths. I've also used them at our friends farm where they coped well with muddy walks herding sheep and cattle, as well as the dogs. Deep puddles, very wet clingy thick grass, deep sticky mud as well as other natural 'puddles' left by the cattle and sheep, were not a problem from leakage or slippage. They clean very easily and the treads are easy to wash out at the end of the day. The Neoprene lining is hot, even on rainy days and you only need thin socks. My usual wool welly socks are too hot and aren't needed, certainly in the summer. It might be different in winter, but I don't think it will be that different. All in all a good buy, and one I'm sure I'll be very happy with.
