    Default Wellies

    I am getting bit fed up with my cheap Asda (I think) wellies of having freezing feet...

    I've seen a note on a thread here about Neoprene wellies and wondered if anybody had any recommendations.

    I have narrow feet, so any that are generous in the foot width department probably won't fit me and be comfortable.

    Thanks!

    What about thermal wellie socks?

    Thanks, had a search around. You wouldn't think it would be so difficult to keep your feet warm :-(

    Do you have any specific recommendations....

    Another vote for welly or hiking socks worn inside wellies from me.
    Added bonus if you have narrow feet is that the wellies fit better and you're less likely to have an "allotment-mud-cinderella" moment where you leave one welly behind... (I too have narrow feet)

    Almost forgot - also thick woolly innersoles are a possibility. Maybe add some real sheepskin ones to the christmas list?!

    I take out the insoles that come with the wellies and put these in instead

    https://www.chimneysheep.co.uk/produ...nsoles-womens/

    They are wonderfully warm and eco friendly too Being about 1cm thick, they really insulate my feet from the cold ground in wellies and keep my feet toasty
    Endless wonder.

    You can get a decent pair of nicely lined Trespass Snowboots for 20 at mandmdirect if of any use. I use them for walking the dogs when very wet. I've only just recently had them so can't testify to longevity but more comfortable and much warmer than traditional wellies. I'd say they are only fully waterproof up to about ankle height so also depends on how deep you need to plodge.
