I have wellies (which are too cold), I had (& returned) waterproof warm boots, which leaked & now ive bought a slightly too tight waterproof but difficult to walk in boot, which has the rubber foot bit, iyswim ?

I need an all round waterproof, mid to high calf, for waking in the mud & rain & maybe snow boot.

Are you wearing it ? Where will I find it ?

Willowisp !!!!

I have jaunt wellies from crocs. I know, i know everyone hates crocs BUT these are fab.
I have had them 3yrs, they have not split or leaked. The are light as a feather, but not flimsy. I wear them ALL year round. They are totally water proof and VERY warm. I could wear them bare feet in the winter and not have cold feet!.
The 'Jaunt' wellies are roomy enough at the top to tuck your trousers into, or wear thick sock, but honestly i was out this morning in normal thin socks and i was toasty.
They are the most comfortable welly i have ever owned and now have them in 3 colors. They sort of mold (sp?) to your feet, so fit like a glove!!

You honestly would not regret getting a pair!

Muck Boots Lune field boots, they are ankle length as I find long boots too warm. Had them 3 years and they are still fine.They have great grip and neoprene lining so you can often wear them without socks when youre in a rush in the morning.
I also have a pair of Bogs which come in nice patterns and have a handy cut out handle for pulling them on or off. DS2 has muckboots too, hes been out in the snow all day and his feet have stayed warm.

Derwent muck boots for me too, have worn them for 8 hours grouse beating and feet have stayed toasty warm and dry.

I was going to recommend the Decathlon ones, but VeganCow got there first so I will second them.

I have worn them standing around in sub-zero temperatures and my feet were still warm smile

Cheap children's hiking boots (size 3 feet) or some neoprene lined lacoste wellies. If it's very muddy I go on roads and if it's below freezing I go cross country over fields. I usually have a baby in a sling. If it's raining really badly the dog doesn't want to go out but he loves snow.

I have Ariat Grasmeres, which are yard/riding boots. Leather and suede, totally waterproof, lined and insulated. They are so comfortable and toasty warm. I have to through streams and am often mid calf level in mud. I just hose them off and they are as good as new. I was very very warm in the snow today on a 2 hour walk. Alas they cost eleventy million pounds but I live in the country and am in them hours and hours each day. Plus I then wear them on the school run/supermarket etc as they are pretty reasonable looking. Well, they are when you live in the country grin

Another one for Aigles. I've had a couple of pairs of hunters and they're not a patch on my super-comfy Aigles. The hunters split or the lining came off by the achilles, exposing the rubber and causing blisters.

The aigles are better in every respect; more supple around the calf, hugely superior grip in ice and mud, better insole, better linings, everything.

Another muck boot fan here. Mine have a neoprene top so fit well around calf. Really warm in this cold weather but cool in summer. Very comfy and supportive for long walks. Loads of farmers use them apparently.

I have a pair of Ariat too - Windermere.

I have the Sherwood Forest Furlong boot. I went for an hours walk the first time I wore them and honest to god it was like wearing slippers. They are so warm and dry and utterly comfortable. And cheaper and less common than Dubarrys!
