Not only are they made out of recycled old tires (and are about 13 years old), but they have been the most reliable thing for me since...uh...ever! Even food and sleep, the two things I usually claim are my favorite things in the world, can, occasionally, let me down. And let's not even get started on the dog, kids, etc.
It's kept me dry during dewy mornings, torrential downpours, and crossing the creek numerous times. When other things change for no logical reason, I can trust those wellies to be there and be solid.
I just hope I don't wear them out too soon.
"To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge." ~ Benjamin Disraeli (1804 - 1881)
