Can't decide. Tried both on. Want both. <<sulks>>

Seldons

Pros

They are definitely waterproof
They look bloody good, surprisingly so
They appear to look like they'll cope with mud etc
Will go with lots

Negs
Zip at the back, but it's well,made and will break in easily enough

BallroomWithNoBalls Fri 06-Feb-15 22:07:41

Just googled and the Seldon are gorgeous! Get them. Are they sheepy all the way down?

Honeydragon Fri 06-Feb-15 22:09:48

Grandles

Pros

They are exactly like wearing normal fugly Uggs my feet love them
Flares are back so I can wear them with Jeans through Spring
As well as with Skinnies

Negs
They are suede so may not be as robustly waterproof as the Seldons
I've always wanted a pair but I've a horrible feeling the Seldons are the more sensible choice.

BallroomWithNoBalls Fri 06-Feb-15 22:10:06

Oh they're not sheepy. Get the Grandle

Honeydragon Fri 06-Feb-15 22:10:55

No, the Seldons are sheepy at the bottom and have a thick insulated liner up the sides.

I can wear both without socks.

Honeydragon Fri 06-Feb-15 22:11:50

Seldons were a bargain at £73.00

Grandles were £80.00

Seldons for the country walks. Grandles for the town/city shopping.

ImBatDog Fri 06-Feb-15 22:13:32

oooh, difficult choice.

how far down does the back zip go? i had a pair of boots with a back zip, they didnt last long, it would put me off buying another pair of boots with one.. but suede not really good for british weather.

<unhelpful>

erm.. if the zip is good, i'd go for the seldons.

Honeydragon Fri 06-Feb-15 22:15:25

Purple ...are you dh? <<narrows eyes>>

The zip goes down to the heel BatDog

dexter73 Fri 06-Feb-15 22:17:47

Seldons - I have been coveting them for a while.

LadyIsabellaWrotham Fri 06-Feb-15 22:19:39

Where did you try them on? That sounds like a triff bargain

No - don't tell me actually - I've only just bought two pairs of knee boots and I really can't justify another two.

Purpleflamingos Fri 06-Feb-15 22:21:03

I'm not your DH, mines sat next to me wondering why I'm laughing so much at the dinosaur thread. I'm just encouraging you to purchase both. Since your DH is unhelpful you could blame it on him? (Or just get the grandles).

Honeydragon Fri 06-Feb-15 22:22:15

Zip

I have both in my house right now! I'm agonising over which to return.

I also got Ugg Cardies for £44 but they are too big

Very have a sale on

ImBatDog Fri 06-Feb-15 22:23:14

whats the fit like? with a back zip, i would suggest going a size up and wearing thicker socks.

i found that with my boots (not seldons btw) that because they were a slightly snug fit, that walking in them basically split the stitching that held the zip.

Honeydragon Fri 06-Feb-15 22:25:06

Fits good. Lot of people have complained the calf is too narrow and they can't do the zip up, but I'm good there's give in the ankle and on the calf.

ImBatDog Fri 06-Feb-15 22:29:29

you should be ok with them then.. i'd imagine being uggs that they're better made than my £40 ones smile

Honeydragon Fri 06-Feb-15 22:39:39

If they did split I'd be having WORDS.

I know what you mean though, my most favourite boots were about £30 from ShoeZone, but the way I sat at my desk made the zip split at the ankle.

I paid about 3 times what the boots were worth repeatedly getting the zip fixed till the cobbler said they couldn't take anymore blush

Do you think they'd both last a good few years? <<clutches straws that could keep both --if I do overtime-->>

tinytops Fri 06-Feb-15 22:43:10

I have the grandles and I love them. They are actually massively waterproof. Ever since I got them I no longer hate winter smile

Honeydragon Fri 06-Feb-15 22:50:33

So I can wear them in puddles and snow?

MarshaBrady Fri 06-Feb-15 22:50:37

Grandle

MarshaBrady Fri 06-Feb-15 22:51:41

They look great on a model here

Can't find a pic of the seldon on some one though

moggle Fri 06-Feb-15 22:54:31

Where are they £80?! I bought a pair of grandles on Black Friday and they are the only things I've worn on my feet since then when out of the house, no joke. they are so comfy but I do need to give them a wipe or something as 3 months of daily walks along a muddy canal has left them looking a little scruffy. I gave them a spray with some waterproofing stuff before I wore them and they've held up perfectly to rain and puddles.

tinytops Fri 06-Feb-15 22:59:16

Puddles, snow, mud galore. Your feet will be dry and toasty. Arsing annoyed that they are £80 now! Paid £160 angry

dexter73 Fri 06-Feb-15 23:02:02

I have the Gershwins and they are great in the snow and rain. Waterproof and toasty warm! They are just a taller sort of Grandle.
