Can I purchase women gumboots at Anaconda?
Yes, Anaconda stocks a variety of different styles of gumboots for women, in sizes 6 – 12 and in different colours, designs and heights, so you will be able to find some stylish and practical footwear that will keep your feet snug and dry whether you are taking the dog to the park or have to work in wet and muddy conditions! Some gumboots even feature lips or “handles” which will help you pull them on more easily.
What should I look for when buying gumboots?
To ensure that your gumboots offer a comfortable fit, check the following points:
A. Shoe Size - As a general rule, use your standard shoe size. Gumboots should not be too tight, but neither should they feel so loose that you worry about them slipping off when you are walking through a muddy field.
B. Boot length - Measured from the sole up to the highest point of the boot. Shorter boot lengths may be more comfortable in warm conditions.
C. Calf Size - Calf size reflects the measurement of widest point of the calf. Remember to allow for your normal trousers and socks (usually a 2cm allowance will suffice).
D. Sole – Gumboot soles generally offer traction and grip, but If you are working with chemicals, oils or manure, it is important to select a sole that is resistant to these compounds.
E. Warmth – Gumboots are designed to keep out wet, but do not keep the cold out very well, so if you are planning to wear your boots in cold weather conditions, adding a pair of woollen socks or special gumboot liners is advised.
