@rmeden I live in a very rainy climate and I bought a pair of these ten years ago. They’re not the best for walking. I like how snug they are, but as a 5’4" person, the top of the boot rubs up against my back knee bendy part. It’s not the worst. I’ve definitely walked miles in these. But these stiff, tall boots in general aren’t great for walking or even getting in and out of a car, even if you’re taller. They’re of course excellent when the storm drains overflow and you have to wade through a foot of gushing water.
Hunter wellies were legit really useful, long wearing boots when I was growing up in the UK countryside. My mother has a 25 year old pair that she’s worn nearly every day.
My bigass feet are too big tho.
@tinkertime I had the same problem with these. You legit need to have very thin legs for these to fit. I have very small feet & have never figured out if these & riding boots have bigger dimensions for the legs if you have bigger feet.

Our business sells products internationally via a network of carefully selected distributors and agents and directly to consumers through our own retail stores and e-commerce websites.
@dumb_cookie these are definitely not made in scotland. However, I think they’ll be a decent pair of rain boots, especially if you want something more snug. Rain boots tend to be floppy but these will be a lot better to walk in. For the price? I’d say go for it. I still have my original hunter boots and they’re very practical in really bad weather.

A review states, “Sigh. My first pair of Hunter boots were amazing. Then they moved the manufacturing to China. The fit is not as tailored as it used to be and feels floppy on my legs. I used to walk miles in these - now I’m looking for a different boot.

@bjango Thanks, but for now I think I will probably go with the Kamik boots one reviewer mentioned on Zappos instead. They are made in Canada with a focus on sustainability, and I found a pair with similar design on their website for only about $70. I’d need to pay shipping, though, unless I bought another pair as a gift.
@sanspoint I am 5’2" size 6 pants. Don’t know why, but I have always had Schwarzenegger calves. 18’ right leg 17" left leg. Can’t ever get a pair of boots to go on and not cripple me. Except genuine western cowboy boots. The kids under 30 all look at my cowboy boot toes like I got them on another planet.
I am starting to hate young people.
@CaptAmehrican 3 years ago? I’ve been out of the fashion game but I still have a pair I got 10 years ago. They’ve been in storage because I thought they were uncool ha. I guess I’ll just hold on for another few years
