Snow may be pretty but is really difficult to walk in. Especially when it compacts and turns into ice, or disintegrates and turns into slush. Both have been wreaking havoc on my boots so I decided to get some wellies.
My first port of call was Asda, but obviously they had sold out as all the smart people had bought them a week before when snow was first predicted. Office was the only place I found with the widest range of "fashionable" wellies for under £30. I wanted these blue snowflakes ones but they didn't have any in my size so I settled for this gold flock printed pair.
They don't have as much grip as knee high wellies but they are comfortable and keep my feet warm and dry. Affordable at £15 too. I'm a size 6.5 and the 6 was slightly too big but nothing that can't be rectified with a thick pair of socks.
Here's a crappy phone pic of me wearing them, obviously looking full of Christmas spirit and cheer(!!).
The great thing is that they don't look like traditional green wellington boots and I can easily incorporate them into anything I wear (I do wear a lot of black). These biker style wellies actually look like a proper pair of boots!
I haven't worn wellies since I was a kid and it felt really strange walking in them. I did however take great relish splashing in a big puddle when no one was looking :D
What have you been wearing in the snow?
