|Clean and new with old, dirty and leaky hiding behind!|
Less than twelve months later they were cracking and letting in water - not just through the cracks but through the 'waterproof' tongue. This winter they were not only useless for paddling, they also let in water when walking through heavily dew-laden grass. A bunny filled with joy I was not.
I decided to ask for recommendations on The Pikers Pit and the boots that got the most kudos were Le Chameau Mouflons. I resisted buying off the web, and today I stopped by a local stockist to inspect a pair. I'm glad I did, because the size I have always found to fit me well in all other boots proved to be rather too snug. First impressions are good. But they were of the leaky pair. If these boots don't stand up to my neglect I'll be seeking retribution on The Pit!
