i want some boots that will keep my feet dry and warm! Afetr the snow i realised mine are not waterproof. I also want them to look stylish. Just bought some hunter wellies but they were too big so gone back. Also wasnt sure about them. Advice please??? Hunters?? Other welly?? Or alternative?

I've just bought these which are much nicer on than Hunters. But I don't think any wellies are going to keep you warm, unless you go for sheepskin lined ones. I've tried hunter wellie socks and their fleecy liners, neither of which make much difference in the snow. Toes still froze very quickly sad

this sort of thing is more comfortable and much warmer

why not opt for snow type boots..?
For lapland we got us and the dk's snow boots and we seem to have had use once back home with them..

Ideal for walks and also for the snow.
I find they keep my feet dry and v vvvvv

like these. Mine are very similar, I wear them with jeans so all you can see is the bottom shoe part so they just look like normal walking boots.

I can't emphasise enough how warm they are!

These keep you dry and are much warmer than wellies.

i ordered from office 65 plus post then cost e 7 to return!!! NOT good. I got 2 pairs of the fleece socks awaiting my decision ( zebra print and pink!). I got the black gloss ones. Undecided whether to order another pair (60 amazon) or not bother and send socks back???
