We began our life with BOGS back in the summer last year – the main reason was that we were attending Glastonbury Festival and having witnessed one of the muddiest Glasto’s the year before we wanted to be better prepared. So we packed our BOGS and got sunshine! So maybe there magic too?!
I did feel bad for my BOGS not being worn so they did feature at Glasto at least once! I mean they went pretty well colourwise with some outfits!
The kids have worn theirs on and off when needed and me to do the gardening or when it’s wet out the back but too be honest they haven’t been needed all that much until….the great snow of 2018 recently!
The BOGS finally got a family outing they deserve – we all wore our BOGS up to the park to go sledging!!!
BOGS in action!!!
Since Hubby had the thermal BOGS it just hadn’t been cold enough to warrant wearing them but I was super jealous when he told me his feet were toasty warm whereas I couldn’t feel mine anymore!
So for the finer details –
My wellies are the Berkley Women’s Waterproof Boots in French Blue
I love them, there super comfortable, the colours great and the handles are well…handy! I would definitely recommend them as a general welly boot as it’s not all that common to have snow in the UK like we’ve just experienced.
If you are going to be in colder environments and lots of snow I’d recommend looking at
Hubby’s wellies Classic High Insulated Work
Hubby tells me there super comfortable also and lovely and toasty warm to wear, the height is good as they’re not too restrictive like the higher ones can be.
The kids wellies are both rain boots
This style is nice and lightweight for kids but the bases are very well made and not thin and flimsy like some cheaper wellies – the kids tell me there comfy, handles are great and I love that they are super easy to clean when they get muddy (or snowy!) the patterns are bright and funky and they are that little bit higher to protect them that little but more.
So on a whole, we love our wellies, I think we’ll always stick to BOGS and right now these are lasting great and still look new! No fading, linings still all in one piece. Highly recommended!
