    Well I don't know where my original thread went, but tried to add the above photos and it disappeared, anyway, if it's gone into the ether, this thread was prompted by Jeanette's about parking a heavy van on muddy grass, so I didn't want to deviate the thread, and wanted to ask a question about footwear on muddy sites. So there you are parked up its Soggy ,sloppy,raining and it's muddy, now many of you take your pets, dogs, cats, parrots and goldfish, oh by the way I know that Some of you with those huge RV's have rhinos and hippos in those large garages, you know who you are, do you saddle them up and ride around, put on the extending lead and haul the critters back in, or do you venture out, what's good footwear on that awful mud. We like a good walk so have both walking boots and shoes, now then wellies wise we have some muktubs, they are made of neoprene and great in winter down to Minus 15 degrees so warm feet, however in July they stick to the feet and are a beggar to get off, particularly if it's the butlers day off, so we use a plastic thingy to remove the boots, photo Above also a photo CC magazine of some ankle boots called Nordic Wet Grips, so what footwear is good on those bad days, sorry about the photos not being with the words, but it's my first ever thread, I'll get the hang of it sometime,please excuse the photo on the right that's how it is, I'm not trying to be rude or personal

    I have wellies - both the long ones and ankle style (similar to the ones in your photo). I also have ADDAs. Mine all came from Lidl and have done sterling service.

    The ADDAs (plastic clogs, similar to an expensive and better known brand) go in the washing machine. I have two pairs at present but when Lidl get them back in I will replace them as they are starting to show more than a wee bit of age.

    Surely you mean muck boots, Muktubs are skips I think, whereas Muck Boots are brilliant wet weather boots, warm good grip and bleeding expensive..;)

    I use these with a zip up the entire side of the boot, it really does make removal very much easier.........

    I bought some cheap versions at a farm shop, they were black in colour and after a while we noticed black marks on the carpet - I suspect they were made largely out of recycled car tyres - but they were very cheap, about a fiver I think. I threw them out and bought some proper ones - but if the Lidl ones ever do appear again I will certainly have a look at them.
