I've heard loads of bad reports of these too but I have had a pair of Grubbs for 3 years and had no issues at all, the soles are starting to wear thin on the heels from when out dog walking on concrete, then again, all my footwear wears the same way on the heels.

the fronts of the neoprene are now starting to look like they may not hold up to water submersion from being clicked,pricked and ripped by brambles and gorze etc. though these have been well used they are still very comy. I would buy another pair if I could guarantee the same level of wear out of them. however, it seems they may not be as good of a boot recently?

I'll look into the Hoggs next time I think?

cant go wrong with the solognac mate.....better than my argile parcurs 2 or whatever they were called

Only pair iv had that did feel a bit better straight away were the le cheamue fcukers but they were more than thrice the price haha an didn’t last any longer, I’m glad you put me onto these haha I swear by em mate an a few folk I know have also jumped shop an after seeing me pick em up rather than me more expensive pairs. Iv not tried any the other gear yet tho, kids an missus got me a load seeland trousers an a load jackets last year so I doubt I’ll need anything else, but wanna try them 😂 might try sneak in a light jacket past wife an see how it goes 😂

Solognac from decathakon. My days of expensive wellies are gone, these cheap fcukers do al the rest do, I like mine an wear em constantly if not working, if I’m milking tho I wear me bekina steplights 👍

Agreed, i'm far too hard on footwear to be forking out on expensive ones. Had a cracking pair of Toggi Wanderer Espirit that lasted two years. Bought another pair which lasted less than a month, sickener..!

Them Solognac are really decent for the money, though i'm on a pair of Aldi neoprene that i bought in Feb 2020 and worn daily, they are still going strong. As well as lamping, we had a good few ratting jobs on a huge farm after shooting finished this year, putting a good few miles in on full days between flight ponds and pens. It was a grouler and them Aldi specials did the job....
