        I used to have sundridge ones and no probs for years, but the liners eventually wore out. They are a bit bulky and weigh a ton when you get caked in mud on a river bed or clay from roubnd the lime pits I used to fish. I bought a pair of small skiing-type boots from TK max (or one of those types of shop - can't quite remember now!) for £20 - very lightweight and unbelievably toasty !!

          Dragon Carp Direct (or Used Tackle as they also trade under) are doing some thermal winter boots with a rubberised waterproof lower half for £20. I haven't got any yet but I'm about to order some. They look pretty good and for that money they have to be worth a try. Also in the colder and wet weather I always wear a pair of PORELLE DRY socks underneath. These are absolutely amazing. They are no thicker than a boot sock but they have a waterproof membrane in them. You genuinely can stand in water in these and it wont come through the sock. They are expensive but teamed with a reasonable pair of boots they WILL keep you dry and warm.
          Hope this helps!

              when it come to thermal boots, you cannot beat skee-tex, the liners aint as good as they first was, but still the besy by a long shot, used them for years, just change the liners when they are getting thin.

                I agree with above post....skee-tex are miles better than all others on the market...the only down sides are ..they aren't the most comfortable to walk any long distance in...and be extra careful on damp/icy surfaces because you WILL slip over.

                    have not tried the shakey ones yet, i have had skee tex in the past and they are good. i normally wear a pair of karrimoor hiking shoes if i dont have to sit in the water. most of my fishing is done on the river, so waders are the norm, but my feet do suffer. i guess you just put up with it, what idiots stand in a freezing river in the snow! mmm! lol
