Talking 5 Thumbs up for Brit Colt Boots, even for fat legs

My Brit Colts arrived today and I'm already in love.

I was worried first of all because the box felt so light, and when I opened it up and saw these sleek elegant (well as elegant as winter type boots ever are) THIN looking boots my heart sank. I thought I would never fit in them for sure.

I went to pull them on, wondering if I was going to need a set of pliers, or some specialist equipment, but I shouldn't of worried, they just slipped straight on

Having got them on they were so comfortable I left them on while I was doing house work, until my feet got so hot I just had to go and do chores. It's not that cold out, we do have a nice layer of snow, and it's 18*F, and my feet stayed nice and warm. I felt secure walking about, didn't slip or slide, so far as I say

I may even give them more when I ride in them,

I've had mine for a year now and love them. I rode the other day in like -20C and I was still warm. At least my toesies were!

I love them so much! I can even walk in them all day hunting and my feet are fine all day!





This is actually a picture of that day it was super cold and I was training horses :P Isn't that little guy a cutie???

Are those muck boots? I tried to search (to check the price), but all I could find was Brit Colt muck boots.

Hm m m. They look neat. Is there any kind of lining or insulation? If not, how do they keep you warm? I dont' think I would be warm in just plain rubber, but maybe I'm wrong.

It's kind of like the material they use in wetsuits... hard to explain. Water resistant and light. The foot part, as you can see, is rubber, but there is also a layer of insulation.

so the part around your foot, not just the calf, has neoprene (wetsuit material) inside of the harder, outside layer?

That's it Tiny, it is like a neoprene boot, but the foot part has a hard rubber cover bonded to it, just like a normal rubber boot.

I like in my Muck Boots, I bought the Chore Boots a couple of years ago and I wear them every day, apart from a few short weeks in the summer

The Colts are going to be my go to riding boots for sure

ok, I can see that. I like that they dont' have any cleats on them. Riding in cleats would be dangerous. I might get me some of those. I usually have to go way down through a lot of mud to find the critters. So, muck type riding boots would be good. HOw much ?

LOL, well mine came in partial trade for a colt, turns out the lady who bought him is a distributor

I usually see them running between $100 - $120
