Do you have a pair that keep your socks dry?! grin

If you do-please can you tell me which style you wear?! I have had wet feet all half term.

It depends what you mean. My Docs have a very thick vulcanised sole so are good for puddles and wet pavements, but if you mean from rain hitting the boots then nothing is waterproof unless it's properly marketed as waterproof with taped seams.

I’ve never got wet feet with fly boots. I’ve had lots of the boots over years but never had an issue.

Appuskidu Thu 26-Oct-17 17:17:43

I must have dodgy boots then as they all seem to leak and make my feet wet!

DonkeyOaty Thu 26-Oct-17 17:23:49

Non leaky flys here. I think the Mols leak or Mes? I don't have those, I've got Seca ones.

i wear dr martens all winter and have never had soggy feet. I have five pairs currently that i rotate and always have warm dry feet in them. Mine are just the bog standard dr martens boots, the classic shape with the airwair soles and goodyear welting

Never had wet feet in my Docs during normal use, what are doing? Wading in rivers?

LikeARedBalloon Thu 26-Oct-17 17:45:25

Not meaning to sound rude but could it be sweaty feet rather than wet feet? My docs don't leak but can get bit damp if my feet get warm!!

My Fly boots leak too, from the first wear! I’ve got two pairs of suede Rocket dog Sugar Daddy boots - sprayed them to make them water resistant(ish) and they’re fine.

Leaky Fly boots, but I have 4 pairs of DMs and they are absolutely waterproof.

I've worn 8 hole DM's for year and never had a problem with wet feet, except for time I waded across a river in them! I must say though that that's usually urban wearing only, so pavements and public transport or cars and only the odd bit of puddle-jumping.

*for years, not one year. Sorry, temperamental key board.

I wear Dr Martens Gayle (lined and non lined) and a pair of the new Rigals. Neither leak.

Appuskidu Thu 26-Oct-17 18:20:13

No wading in rivers or sweaty feet-just leaking!

PNGirl Thu 26-Oct-17 18:51:36

Where do they leak though? Is it coming through the leather, or the soles?

SoupDragon Thu 26-Oct-17 18:53:25

I've had three pairs of Fly boots. They all leaked in wet weather. I'd never buy them again.

SoupDragon Thu 26-Oct-17 18:54:39

I think they leak between the sole and the upper.

QueenRefusenik Thu 26-Oct-17 18:57:25

Leaky fly mols here. Sad because I love them, I just don't wear then in the wet! DMs fine though.

Appuskidu Thu 26-Oct-17 19:18:10

Yes-it's leaking between the sole and upper-it's my toes that get wet.

I have both Mes and Mol.

Flicketyflack Thu 26-Oct-17 19:25:46

My fly boots have just started leaking after three years envy

I have a timberland pair of boots which have never leaked!

Arsenicinthesugarbowl Thu 26-Oct-17 19:33:43

My fly boots leaked right from the start. Couldn’t cope with any wet weather at all. I wouldn’t buy them again as I think winter boots should have some level of resistance. They leaked when it was damp! I’ve got better boots for much cheaper. Shame as I like fly styles.

Mimifox Thu 26-Oct-17 20:19:00

I have 7 pairs of Fly
All Amazon purchases
Dunno if that makes a difference
No leakers
But my £140 Dune boots that was another story.....

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Thu 26-Oct-17 20:20:51

My DMs don't leak, I've had the same pair of 8 holes for 25 years and they are in perfect nick.

SoupDragon Thu 26-Oct-17 20:46:19

All Amazon purchases

So were my leaky ones.

SwedishEdith Thu 26-Oct-17 20:50:26

I've had 3 pairs of Fly boots and they've never leaked. I know lots say theirs do but I've never had that problem.
