These boots are hand made in Europe from natural rubber with a hard wearing lining, at a factory which has been making great boots since 1935. Even more importantly, the boots have an open buckle at the side, which make them easy to get on, and make them a wide fit for your calf. They are a normal fit otherwise. The buckle gusset area is fully waterproof and does stay in place when left open. These boots have been tested to the highest degree and have a slightly rough finish to ensure any brambles or other typical countryside obstacles do not get caught in the rubber.
They are an ideal boot for farmers, people working with horses, hunting or just spending a lot of time in tough environments. Most boots are now made in the Far East, so take advantage of some European quality at a very decent price.
Why we love them: High quality European made boots - you will be love the quality of these durable boots
What we’d do in them: Muck out the horses or spend a day around the farm.
These are nice boots. They are fairly light weight and quite flexible compared to other boots, but I found them a bit too narrow for me. I normally wear E fit shoes, and my calves are a normal size, but I found the feet and ankles were slightly too narrow, and the calves were a snug fit, even with the gusset open. It's a pity they don't make these in a wider fit.
I purchased my tigar wellies and was very pleased that they matched their description perfectly. Also as I'm travelling the prompt delivery and excellent service means I'd definitely use them again.
Not for me
No doubt these are really good quality wellies, but the fit was all wrong for me. Very sloppy around the ankle and top of foot allowing my foot to lift considerably within the boot with each step, which I could envisage rubbing with prolonged use and hence sent them back. I wish they still did Century Dip-tech. I would pay good money for a pair of those!
Very comfortable easy to get on and off unlike some similar boots
Came within a day or so which was great, sent back as I need the extra wide fitting, looking forwards to receiving my replacements Jean
