You can’t beat a good pair of wellies. These however are not a good pair. They are a good colour and fit but they have a fundamental flaw, one of them lets in water. It is a sneaky slow puncture which you only discover when you have soggy socks. They should do repair kits for wellies just like bicycles, it seems a shame to discard a pair just because of a little leak. I will continue to wear them and get a wet foot until I get around to buying some new ones. This isn’t straightforward as there are so many choices to be made – what colour, plain or patterned, cheap or expensive? If I didn’t know that scientifically it was bunkum I could blame soggy socks on my present state of health ie pathetically poorly and therefore off work and miserable.
