Even when it's 30C degrees Julie? :wink:

I get quite sad when it is too hot for wearing wellies as they are so convenient and keep my feet clean! Can tread in poo, can walk through ants nests and stinging nettles, can mow lawn without the collector thingy on and not get green socks..... oh I love wellies! :cheers:

I love my Wellies! So, for me, its got to be Wellies in Winter/Sandals in Summer. My sandals are Merrell "trekking" type ones like a few other people on here seem to like. Also, i think it helps that our garden has very light and sandy soil, so its a bit like being on the beach (hmmm, well, i can almost convince myself...)

I find mine great for the garden (and dog walking) - just wear thick cotton socks in summer (for absorption) and thick wool ones in winter for warmth, acrylic socks make feet too hot and sweaty whatever the season
Muckboot is the brand name. This is wot I've got

It says on this site "Comfort range 85° F to sub-freezing conditions". They certainly did keep me warm in all that snow we had, but I felt sweaty the other day and it's only spring, so I'm not convinced about the 85F suggestion.

I'm now going through all the suggestions and looking them up online. Thanks for the input everyone :thumbright:
