Just that really. What's the most you would spend on a decent pair of real leather, long winter boots. Something quite traditional in style so likely to last a few years.

£200 agreed. Wouldn't spend more in case I went off them

£300. My Dubarrys have been a solid investment, I've owned them 8 years now. Just about to replace them as mine have now retired to be DMum's dog walking boots.

Boots are obscenely expensive... I'd probably spend up to 300 for premium ones in the sales.

I've spent, I think, around £300 on LK Bennett long black boots. I have very skinny calves and they fitted me which was a miracle. Have had them two winter seasons and they're like new - definitely a good buy.

It depends, five years ago I bought a pair of boots by Tamaris. They are fur lined, waterproof and very comfy. They cost £99 and are still going strong. I think if I had to replace them now I would be spending up to £200 although I've got my eye on a pair of DM's which are around £130.

No more than £100, but probably would get something on sale, so around £150-£200 full price.

I likes a bargain, me. Amazon is great for this, all my boots are half price from there.

My Duo boots were £150 nearly 10 years ago. I don't wear them loads but they've still plenty of wear. I'd spend up to £200 to replace them.

Just ordered these with 15% off so £144, lots of leather for the money given they are over the knee. Hope they keep me warm

Up to £150 but that would be with a discount or sale of some sort.

Probably about £150.00

I buy Dr Martens so £80-120 a pair. I have 4 pairs on rotation and am eyeing up another pair.

NameChanger22 Thu 27-Oct-16 18:09:10

The most I've ever spent is £115. Now, the most I would spend is £40 in TK Maxx, but I'm more likely to spend under £20 on Ebay.

Rhythmsticks Thu 27-Oct-16 18:12:19

About £200 normally.

DerelictMyBalls Thu 27-Oct-16 18:20:09

Between 200 and 250 pounds

Dependant on budget surely? I've got 6 pairs that cost between 250 and 800, best winter ones are a pair or Toast ones that cost about 350 and a pair of Sorel snow boots that cost about 150.

Depends what style you're after, how long you want them to last and what you need them for.

SpeckledyBanana Thu 27-Oct-16 18:55:42

The most I've ever paid is £100, but both pairs are now c.8 years old (I keep getting the soles and heels done) so now, maybe £150.
