    i use various types of boots when I'm out it all depends on the weather/terain...

    my first choice is a hiking boot (something with good ankle support) you dont have to pay threw the nose for these as you can pick up a good quality pair for around £30
    my second choice is a good old pair of wellys (main problem with these is they don't keep your feet very warm ) so you have to wear plenty of pairs of sock,s or buy some sea boot socks ...

    what boots do you wear guys?

    i wear traditional timberlands. most people just wear them as a fashion item but they're actually a good all rounder. i wear them to work or when im doing outdoor activities. they take a bit of breaking in though

    Pair of good hiking ankle boots, pair of wellies with thermal welly socks. £5.99 a pair from "The Range" and worth every penny. Geoff. :hp-beer:.

    used to wear a pair of scarpa sl attacks i got nearly 20 years ago . wlaked the west highland way 3 times in them and in the end i wore them to work. still got them now . sole is almost worn through but i cant bear to bin them and i dont think they are worth resoling as they are all scored and worn on the toe area too .

    i also used to wear army issue high leg boots . they were so comfy that when they worn the sole almost through i tried to get them resoled but due to the way they moulded the sole on the shop said no

    I will do a pic later, I have had them for years but only worn the realtree ones twice I think so they still like new.

    I have a couple of pairs of boots but have found both of them lacking in one way or another :( the Doc Martins leak like sieves! :( and the other boots a no name from Ebay are not as bad but I have found walking through the longer stuff with morning dew about the dew hits your legs and runs down the inside into the boots! :( I eventually bought myself a set of gaiters and that did the trick.

    Foot wear is a very chalenging thing to me on the winter here in Norway. I allways freeze on my feet and head. To the head i have a thick wool bonnet and is ok.
    To my feet i haven't find yet one pair of boots that keep it warm if i'm not moving and is relatively comfortable to walk.
    I bought some and tried two pairs of wool socks but i wasn't enough.
    I keep searching.
