I’ve had my brown wellies, or rather Derri Boots, for a very long time indeed but sadly they are no longer waterproof and definitely needed replacing.
As with seemingly everything nowadays the choice of wellie boots is simply bewildering, as is the price range. I’ve been asking fellow allotmenteers for their thoughts but, not surprisingly, there was no clear consensus.
Unlike Wellywoman I don’t wear mine nearly all the time as I generally wear work boots when plotting, so I’ve opted for cheap and cheerful with a pair of green Dunlop wellies that only cost me £10. I bought them this morning at a local casual and workwear clothes shop that I’ve been going to for over 35 years.
They look out of place compared to the rest of my usual well worn Compo plot attire but with the present unsettled weather I’m sure that they’ll soon have a matching, and muddy, look.
Have a good weekend!
