Musto boots

Which out of the four sets of boots on this page do people have:
http://www.musto.com/products.aspx?a...&priceRangeId=

I'm interested in people's opinions, good bad and indifferent. I'm currently after a new pair as my current Quayside ones are leaking and the insides are falling apart, and I don't fancy having cold feet this winter! In terms of looks, the brown all leather ones are my favorite

I think that the Dubarrys look the best.

Ive got the old/original hpx boots. Very happy with them, very comfortable and pretty warm. Soles are very good. I preferred the mustos to the other makes but that's a personal fit thing I guess; most of my friends go for the Dubarry!

Well whatever you do , dont get the same ones as Vicky, they leaked on the first day of use ! - I like the look of the Henri LLoyd boots actually, but Dubarry seem to be the option for everyone nowdays, although they are f*cking expensive!

I have just bought a pair of the HPX boots from the Cowes shop. 189.00. They are, undoubtably, good boots. I think the pull-on tab should be beefed up.

So far, I can confirm that ones feet *do not* sweat in them. The soles are good. The leather appears good quality. And Musto have an efficient, albeit rather expensive when compared to buying new, repair service.

I wear the Dubarry's every day for work, I got them at an agricultural show and have a heavier "tread pattern" than the boaty ones, but are very comfortable indded and dry as a bone.

I used to have some dubarry boots for shooting, found them completley different to the marine ones ( although have only tried on the marine ones) but as good as they were, still couldn't touch Hunters!
