Heavy rain in Scotland today and I have just found my walking shoes aren't waterproof!
I live in a wet and muddy rural area and brought a similar sort of Ecco pair last year, but in leather (can't find them on this year's website); they have been very comfortable and have kept my feet dry for everyday use, although they are deeply, deeply unglamorous.
The Ilse Jacobson ones look nice and seem good quality, but - this may be just a personal quibble - I hate walking far in wellingstons. I find that without laces to adjust the fit my feet sort of slop around inside boots. That's is tiring, and makes me, at least, feel less-sure footed.
With thick socks they dont actually feel like wellies. i could personally wear them all day and feel comfortable. They do come up generous though...so thick socks and an insole are best. I was up and around loch lomond area....in mud and by the side of the loch and my feet were bone dry.
Didnt even notice any stray words! Im not one for wellies either tbh and thought long and hard...but i hate my feet getting wet so thought i would give them a go. I was impressed...although in no way take the place of a good robust hillwalking boot.
