I had signed up for a Ski Course @Auli,India in February. I was looking for something solid and waterproof when i came across these @Decathlon store in Thane. I quite liked the build of the shoe and decided to go for it. I don't regret it . In fact ; it was a very good decision . Turned out snowfall was less this year. So we had to climb further (roughly to the equivalent of 90 floors a day uphill ) on steep mountains to reach the ski slopes. On the way we had patches covered with sleet , slush , boilerplates & mud (not to mention dung). Both uphill & downhill , not once did I feel I was out of control or the surface would be too slippery to step on. Yea. They are also water proof. As it says on their label. A must have if you're a frequent trekker
Bought these on my way out of store as the boots I'd gone in to buy were unavailable in my size. My Brashers needed urgently replacing. Decided to buy just to keep me temporarily in waterproof winter walking boots. They did not need breaking in, so light hardly know I'm wearing them, completely waterproof. Do about 4 miles across fields every day walking the dog. Will buy again when I need replacement.
Comfortable, warm, did not need breaking in.
I walked in these boots from snow to mountains without getting socks wet, these were very comfortable and never smelt after all this.
Comfortable, waterproof verified, warm
I bought these boots after my every day walking trainers started to leak. It was a last minute descision to buy them. What attracted me was the price for waterproof snow boots. I've worn them for a few months now and used them hiking in Scotland in the winter. So far I have been very impressed. I use them every day for walking the dog and general use and they haven't let me down. They do exactly what they say on the tin and yes I would buy another pair. Why 4 stars? Nothing gets 5;)
I bought these because I work outdoors in all sorts of weather , so I needed waterproof breathable boots. I found out quickly that my feet felt damp around the toe area so I tried different insoles and different socks to see if it would help, it did not. Today I did the school run in the rain wearing these with merino wool socks, when i got home my feet felt damp so i kept the boots on for a few hours , later my feet were feeling cold so I took them off and my socks and feet were damp around the toe area. For me they are not breathable and so I am very disappointed.
Product not as described!
