I don`t really like wearing wellies but I need to when I walk my dog. I found these boots and I new I had to have them! they`re great for walks, even longer ones - they look amazing - nothing like wellies but are waterproof (made from natural rubber), warm and very comfy! The only issue I had at the beginning was that right boot was rubbing on my achilleas and I ended up with blister. Not sure if was a problem with the boot or maybe my sensitive skin though.
