Dureable waterproof footwear

I can never seem to get a good pair of waterproof work footwear.I've tried boots and trainers ( all protective toe caps) and never found one that's built to stay waterproof for more than a few months.What do you guys use and recommend?I do a lot of lawnmowing so that involves a lot of walking.Please no wellingtons :-).I have used brands from haix, 2 pairs, both leaked within weeks, to screwfix cheapies.They need to be comfortable and durable.Thanks

    Last 18 months to two years get used in winter for gritting too (so caked in salt all the time) always stayed 100% waterproof and comfortable.

    I just chose these - they were a bit stiff for the first day or so, now they are ace - and are everything they say they are.

    I've recommended the Strauss (Oberstdorf - my Favs from the range) S3 boots on LJN for over 6-7 years. I've used them for 10+yrs since Strauss started to make them easily available in the UK. Most of my guys also swear by them and I wouldn't go onsite without my pair. I have 3 or so sets on the go at anyone time.

    Do a Strauss search on LJN and note the feedback. For the price they can't be beaten and are so lightweight which means after a days hard slog your don't feel like you've been wearing 'diver's boots' :)

    • Hey Gary. Thanks for advice.
      Have to ask though, why do you have 3 sets on the go at any one time if they are that good?

      I think I'll try a pair though.

        I've just always done that - allows them to air after my smelly feet have been in them all day.....

        So, do you wear the same underpants everyday ? ;)

          4 days is the norm right?

          Your blue has stayed remarkably unfaded. Mine tend to go the colourr of the righthand ones within about a week...

        • Yup, inside out and back to front :-)
