In your free time, whether you’re fishing or gardening, you don’t want wet feet. When it rains, we are forced to cross wet, muddy ground and wade through shallow puddles. Wellington boots are still the best and most reliable footwear in these situations. Rubber rain boots usually reach at least up to your calf but can come up as high as over-the-knee. They offer many advantages including being very waterproof, having a wide boot shaft and being very easy to clean. A quick run under the outside tap or a hose quickly washes any unwanted mud or dirt off the boot. The wide shaft of the boot is designed to fit your trouser leg comfortably inside, so it stays dry and dirt-free. Unsurprisingly, rubber boots are very popular with children. These practical boots keep little feet nice and dry no matter many puddles kids splash around in.
