• Old Wellies, New Wellies

I’ve had my old pair of black Dunlop wells for decades, but one of them has split its sole so is useless in wet weather.  I’ve no wish to go down the green wellie route, so I ordered the closest new black wellies that I could find, again from Dunlop.  How standards have dropped.  They may be a tad taller, but the legs are feebler and less robust.  Worse still, the heels and soles are not a patch on their predecessors’ – they’re so thin that I can feel every stone that I walk over.  I might as well be wearing flip-flops with leggings.
