It’s Welly Boot Season! Yes, the rain is dripping down and the nights drawing in and the cold tearing about the house. It is time to drag on those wellies and stomp outside in enormous, cold puddles and sing about snow. So I went out and bought not one, but two, pairs of wellington boots from M&M Direct*.
PlayPennies have done a few reviews for M&M Direct in the past and I noticed that their stuff was very cheap and so that’s why I chose them for the winter shop. My daughter’s feet seem to be growing at a speed that my wallet can’t keep up with so spending more than, say, £6 on a pair of shoes kind of hurts me.
M&M Direct have just launched two new wellies for their Autumn/Winter collection and they have been reduced from £12.99 to only £4.99. They are available in pink flowers or army camouflage. Perfect. I got one of each and in two different sizes.
The pink wellies were, of course, the ones my daughter first went for. They are ace for one very specific reason – the heels are see-through! Yes, the heel and sole are completely clear which had both of us enthralled. I don’t know why, it’s just ace.
The army camouflage pair were not a hit for colour in my daughter’s world until I showed her how they blended with our local forest. THEN they became the pair that never came off on our weekend walks even though they were a size too big.
Both pairs are well made and sturdy and waterproof – all the features of a good pair of wellies. My daughter didn’t suffer from blisters or rubbed areas, only a little in the bigger pair for obvious reasons, and their mouth is big enough for thick, warm socks. How can I not give these a resounding thumbs up? Great price and great value for money.
