Perfect waterproof boots for dog walking
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 September 2017
Living in on a Welsh mountain, waterproof boots are a must. Thus, when I bought these as a cheaper alternative to my previous pair of over-worn Mammuts, I was living in hope of success. Thankfully, my hopes weren't proven false. Our of the box, I thought they looked great. When first put on, they fit perfectly (as experience has taught me to get half a size bigger [size 7.5 on a size 7 foot]). They felt and feel surprisingly supportive around the ankle and the mandatory breaking in period took the whole of 5-10 minutes of walking uphill, following which these shoes became the lightest and most comfortable boots I have worn. Such comfort, I feared could work to compromise the boots' waterproofing effectiveness and so I sought to test them thoroughly with the help of my dog who elected to lose his ball in a nearby patch of thick, 2-3ft high grass. As it was, and had been raining I stepped deep into the aforementioned grasses, expecting my boots to become saturated, but was pleasantly surprised to find they were bone dry on the inside. Further testing with submurgence in deeper bodies of water may be pending, but I just wanted to waylay any fears of the water resistant nature of these lovely boots.
