There is no denying that winter is coming, it’s only a few months away after all, and with winter, snow and ice often accompanies it along with the classically British rain. So during these cold and icy months, we need footwear that will not only keep our icy feet warm but also help to prevent us from slipping on the ice.
What to Look For
When looking for a pair of winter yard boots, you will want something that is sturdy, hardwearing, and unlikely to tear quickly. A Wellington boot that fits well and warms icy toes is also ideal during the snowy and icy weather. Of course, they should also be comfortable and fit your feet well so that they are at least supported a little bit. In this mini guide, we will look at the best snow and ice wellies you can buy for men and women.
From the expensive and stylish, to the cheap and practical, you’ll find a welly here that is sure to suit your needs.
Dubarry – Style and Comfort in Leather
In general, it would seem that the more expensive brands such as Dubarry and Le Chameau are the best buys for winter wellies. They tend to last longer and are more durable. Places like Le Chameau who have warranties on their boots give a real confidence about how they feel about the quality of the brand. While they are quite high up on the chain when it comes to expense it is well worth saving up for these if you need something that will last you a long time.
However, it is quite easy to find something that is cheaper but still has good quality to it. Brands like Hunter and Muck Boots may be cheaper to buy, but they still pride themselves on a product that is generally durable and very comfortable to wear. Especially in the case of Muck Boots, they offer something incredibly thermal at a very reasonable price. So whether you want something that offers incredible warmth and is top of the range, like Dubarry, or a snow boot that is a little cheaper like Hunter, there is sure to be one here that suits you.
