    Just get another pair of Muckboots is the obvious answer; it’s what I’d do if anything happened to my pair.
    I can’t think of any compelling reason to buy anything else.

    Just bought some Grubbs that are the same as muck boots, half price from easy wellies.

    ajc, thanks for the heads up…grubs ordered.

    Dunlop purport thermal will keep your tootsies toasty as temperatures drop well below zero, as tested by me about 30 miles north of Aberdeen in a very exposed area a few winters ago. I was the only one on the project whose feet steamed as we got changed after work.

    Not really suitable unless the temperature or wind chill is a few below or less though or you will over-heat IME

    I’ll second the Grubs, as good an insulation as the muckboots, but with a much better sole!

    I have Le Chameau Vierzonords. They’re lovely.

    General curiosity question here. But having only really experienced Poundstretcher style wellies, and given that all wellies are waterproof, I’m wondering, what’s the advantage of a good set of wellington boots? can wellies actually be comfortable?

    can wellies actually be comfortable?

    Yes.

    That’s quite impressive. I’d never have dreamed of riding in wellies.

    Muckboots for sure. I walked 26 miles in mine one day, was bought some Aigles as a replacement, but they hurt after a few yards. Muckboots are warm, comfy and very long lasting in my experience.

    Funny you should ask, I went for a walk around Aust this afternoon, from near the old Severn Bridge down to Old Passage, and back, around seven or eight miles across country. I was going to wear my Oakley Tactical boots, but at the last minute put my Muckboots on. Bloody glad I did, it was pretty boggy in places, and at a couple of gates the water came halfway up my calves!
    My feet were fine, my legs ached from the slippy ground. I’ve done nine miles or so in mine, six or seven isn’t unusual.
    How far are you planning on walking the dog?

    The neoprene lined Decathlon ones I regularly walk many miles in. Running, bit knackering after half a mile..

    Speaking of Oakley tactical assault boots – size 10 anyone?

    See my comments.
    It helps if you wear neoprene boot socks over thin regular socks, it’s what I’ve done with mine since I got them around two years ago.
    Really couldn’t be without them, they are a permanent fixture in my car boot, and now it looks like we are going to get a longish damp period my wellies will be getting a lot of use every weekend.

    Been trying to find the liners I use in my wellies, they’re red neoprene, and are ankle high, like trainer socks, but I can’t track them down got them from an outdoor/country wear/ goods place, they look a bit like these:

    A worthwhile investment, some of the stitching on the heel on one has worn through, I’ll re-stitch it with some Kevlar thread when I think of it.
    Yay, here we go!

    I find these fit well. Longest I have walked in them is about 15 miles & I survived. I went to the shop to buy Muck boots but came out with the above due to superior fit.

    If you wear wellies a lot +1 for Aigle.

    They are seriously one of the best things I’ve ever bought. As used twice this weekend (gardening & Bonfire)

    How far are you planning on walking the dog?

    He gets one or two walks a day, up to a couple of hours. Most places are getting pretty boggy. Cheap wellies are rubbish for walking in. Just wondered if any of the above were any better? And where does one buy ones wellies these days?
