I've got my 'nice' winter boots but it's already become clear they are going to be no good for bad weather which is fine, they weren't really meant for that. But I do need something for winter walks and the odd bit of snow (although I do have wellies so they would do for that at a push).
What I'd like: Warm Practical to walk in Waterproof if possible Stylish and non grannyish Not too £££ (really don't want to spend more than about £60)
Is there anything out there that matches my wishlist?
Very subjective about non-grannyish but you might find something at the likes of Land's End/Cotton Traders? They cater to the middle aged dog walking market so likely to be actually waterproof rather than style over substance.
Thanks for the link but I think I'd veer towards a hiking boot style rather than those, I know they don't come up the leg as far but we don't get snow that often do we? It's more mud and falling over on ice I'm worried about - maybe I am going to have to up my budget a bit...
These - I have three pairs, and the oldest are entering their 7th winter - you can often find them reduced on Amazon. I give them a coat of walking boot wax every so often and they are good to go for aniother winter.
I have these and they are the dog's bollocks (also great for biger calves). i know they're too expensive but if you like them, look out for sales, they may be around cheaper and there are also shorter versions.
I LOVE mine, they are warm, dry, cope with any weather and look good with everything.
Mammonite - I have ice grippers and they are brilliant. You can wear them over any boots and you will not slip over in the snow/ice. I got some for my mum as she wouldn't go out in the snow as she was scared of falling over, but last year she wore them and was very safe (and I didn't have to do all her shopping for her ).
