Lookin recomendations for good wellys that are comfy and last for ages. Currently using dunlop purofort. Iv tried the dunlop thermo boots which are great at keepin feet warm in winter but are very heavy and dont last. Also tried bekina but they dont last either and arent as nice to wear as dunlop. I dont mind payin a bit extra for boots if they would last me at least a year mabe 2.

They seem to perish quite quickly and crack mabe after 4-5 months. Would like boots that u basicly buy and forget for a long time with no wet feet
I got a pair I wear daily and they are nearly 2 years old.

Took a pair back my son had 9 months and had split on the heel join where they have let go. Waiting on Dunlop to say what if anything they are going to do.

Ive never understood wanting wellies to last ages. We often spend 8+ hours per day in them. Your feet are massively important and if it comes down to it i would happily buy a new pair every month and still consider it cheap..

The reason i started this thread was cause i wanted better quality boots as i think theyd be worth the extra investment

Been using Dunlop as well bought some willies from aldi which seemed too heavy so didn't where them for a year used them since lambing and found them very comfy and not too heavy either £20 as well
Only problem is we dont have aldi here in ni and i wont be orderin boots of online as i want to put them on before buyin as i am between size 11 and 12 on different brands
 
I have found them quite good and hard wearing.
Having to put new inner soles in them and grip lasting very well tbh
Soles are fine, more around where sole joins the uppers, and around the heels in particular.
I've also found that if they catch on anything they just rip, I've used the brand (Hevea) for probably 30 years and I don't recall them being as destructible as I've found them in recent years and back then I was almost definitely abusing them (and myself) a lot more than I do now.
They are very hard to beat for comfort but I'm fed up buying a pair of them every few months.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
