Any recommendations please?
Must be waterproof, warm (perhaps fleece lined) no laces if possible and not full length wellies.
I’ve been wearing cotton trader snow boots for the past 8 years, but they’ve finally split and was hoping for something a bit more attractive looking!

These are my current ones.
Also less than £50 a pair please. I like the look of the yard boots, but they around £130!

I thought this was about walking boots for dogs! I was going to say, why would they need them?

Are hiking boots waterproof? As quite often the fields are waterlogged. Also I cannot bear touching wet muddy laces or taking gloves off numerous times to re tie laces (hence the no laces if possible!)

I wear woof wear short yard boots until it’s really muddy and then I go into Dublin river boots . Both are really comfortable with good ankle movement , the woof wear are reasonably cheap , the river boots are more costly .

I wear either Meindl Goretex boots, or ASDA wellies!

I wear berghaus walking boots with thick socks.

I wear Hi Tec walking boots which are warm and waterproof. The laces don't usually get muddy near the top where you tie them or come undone on walks (and I live somewhere where it rains a lot).

I wear Aigle neoprene-lined boots. They were expensive but I've had them for 2.5 years and they are still as new. They are also extremely comfy.

I've got cheap hiking boots (TKMAX) which I wear with woollen socks over my indoor socks. The laces are really loose so I can just slip them on and off.
They are waterproof (re-tested in 2.5 inch deep puddle this afternoon!) and so cosy, esp with wool socks keeping my ankles warm and hems of jeans clean.
Lasted me 5 years so far. I store them near the boiler so they are always warm grin

@EducatingArti I also clicked on here thinking this was about boots for
Dogs blushI think it was after having seen little red Christmas booties in the pet store. And no I wouldn't subject my dog to them. Although isn't it so that dogs get uncomfortable if it's very icy, or if there is grit on the ice?

I have quite large calves & wear the Jileon’s wellies with welly socks.

Looking at the dubarrys Wexford (men’s) as they are the only nice ones that fit but they are shock expensive. So I’ve asked for cash for Christmas & my birthday to put towards them.

I'm just coming on to say don't waste your money on Aigle. Or probably any other fancy expensive brand.

I have a pair of Aigle wellies, bought from glowing reviews on here and the bottom after relatively little use has lifted away from the boot 😡

The final straw for me tbh, I have wasted so much money buying horrendously expensive products that promise to last me ages as they such good quality only to be left really disappointed and angry.

I work outdoors, and have tried and tested many variations of boots and sock to kept my feet warm.

Fleece lined rigger boots are good.
Wellies of your choice, sheepskin insoles (actual sheepskin, not polyester fleece) and long woollen socks (again, high content of actual wool).

these type of socks

And these type of boots... sold at workwear places like Screwfix and Arco. Best to try them on though. Sizes smaller than a 6 may need to be ordered in.
