    I am a great fan of Wellington style pull-on leather boots, 10-12” in height.
    Living and riding in the Pacific Northwest means rain, frequently and sometimes for long periods of time.
    I am looking for a pair of Wellington style pull on boots to keep my trusty size 13’s dry (and thusly warm) and comfy. Not looking for insulation.
    My priorities are waterproofness, comfort, quality construction and materials, and durability.
    Cost isn't really an issue. I have normal width with what is sometimes referred to as a “Greek” footshape with 2nd toe longest. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated from those of you who are Happy with your leather wellington boots riding in dry and wet conditions.

    You need some real gumboots - every Kiwi has a pair of gumboots. I've still got a pair of lace up gumboots, with toe cap and steel shank...I used to trail ride with them back in the '90's. These days they have no laces and I mow the lawns in them.
