Rebecca Pattenden tested these boots on her cob Thomas
Thomas has got quite small feet, but they are very boxy and upright. It can make finding a pair of overreach boots that fit quite difficult – they either tend fit widthways but are not deep enough, or are too wide and come off easily.
The Velcro fastener gave me room to adjust the bootsto fit Thomas.
Shaped and contoured to fit the heel using a padded bulb, they remained firmly in place even through deep mud.
They didn’t rub and are really light, yet offer excellent protection.
The boots still look as good as new,despite regular use and are really easy to wash either in the machine or under the tap.
First impressions are that they are expensive, but they have lasted very well and compared to the number of pairs of rubber boots I have gone through they are excellent value for money.
