Bought these for my mum. She has bunions and needs wide fitting, soft, footwear. These wellies fit that brief perfectly. The rubber is soft, whilst durable. The soles are strong and thick. On our first wet dog walk, mum commented that she couldn't feel stones underfoot like she did with her last wellies and that her feet remained dry. She also found them light weight, and is pleased to be able to get them on and off easily due to the wider leg.
