Go Outdoors North Ridge Walking Boots

A few weeks ago I purchased a pair of North Ridge walking boots from the Go OutDoors store in Stockton-on-Tees (Ascot Drive, Portrack Lane, Stockton-On-Tees TS18 2QQ).
I mainly bought them because I needed a pair of waterproof boots for when I walk our Lurcher, Barley.
For the first week or so there was nothing wrong with them. They fitted well, and were very comfortable.
The problems started when the weather changed, rain had made the grass wet, and when I walked across the wet grass, the boots leaked. They weren’t just letting in a little bit of moisture, they were like the titanic, my feet were completely soaked.
I tried to fix this problem by spraying the boots with a waterproofer. This did not work, which means that the seams of the boots do not meet properly, ergo they are very low quality and poorly made.
I now have no choice but to dump the boots in a cupboard, and only use them in the Summer.
So now I have to buy another new pair of boots that are definitely waterproof, because the Go Outdoors North Ridge Walking Boots were not fir for purpose, and a complete waste of money. 🙁
