Anyone got them? Are they worth the money? Are they comfy? Will they last forever?!

I couldn't get them past my calves. The expensive ones (more for country pursuits) are well made and should last, but these 'fashion' cheaper ones are over rated and not that well made, although for general occasional around town wear will do the job. Depends what you'll use them for really

MissusS - I had the same issue, but got the "Huntress" ones.. They fit just lovely.
Feel like i'm wearing slippers in mine, so definately worth the cash! Mine are for country walks etc

Mine would be for country walks and wet school runs. I've just spotted these though on the next website and might order them instead.....

Lovely huntress ones - think they come up a bit big though. Lots of room for snuggly welly socks!

They ARE worth the money and should last a good long while for what you want them for. I've had normal ones but nowadays I need the Huntress ones as well, and I go through wellies at a rate of about a pair of decent ones (Hunters or Le Chemeau - sp) every 2-3 years, but I wear them a LOT as I have horses (so roughly 10 hours of wear a week now but used to be more like 40 hours a week when I worked with them!)

They USED to last forever when they were made in Great Britain. No longer made here and now made in China and the quality plummeted as a result. They are much more of a fashion statement these days, which is fine, unless you want to use them for mucking out horses, in which case they don't withstand the constant wear/getting wet etc. For what you want they should last a long time.

I've had a pair for 2 years and they're really comfy and wearing brilliantly. I went through 3 cheapy pairs (from new look etc) in 3 months so decided to give them a try. I wear mine all the time taking the dog out, so all weather and for anything up to an 8 mile walk and they don't hurt at all, I could wear them all day!
