Ok - son going to NYC mid Feb and we need to get him some boots in case of snow or slush.

He fancies timberlands. Are they waterproof.

Timberlands work well or CAT boots
If you get the suede style just give them a quick spray with waterproof stuff before he goes

when you say SOrel boots do you mean this kind of thing?

Armpitt Sat 17-Jan-15 16:12:03

The caribous are brilliant if expensive.

asos good for timberlands I think teenager more likely to wear again than sorels. John lewis and Marks both did fake duckboots at one time.

result. went to look at deacathlon and found these which he says are ok - plus there is a NYC specific review!

Armpitt Sat 17-Jan-15 19:23:18
