So, at first I thought that these boots were ugly. My booth was next to this poor fellow, Stephen, for the first week of the Horse Show. Most of the day he stood in a tub of water to show that the boots were waterproof. he explained to me that they weren't just for barn and country life. That they were great apres de ski boots, winter boots, rainy day boots, or boots to wear to your kids games. ( think muddy, wet fields.)
He was a very good salesman. As the week went on they started to look good to me. So many people at the show had them or were buying them. Including him:

"The original Dubarry knee length waterproof breathable leather wellington boot
Constructed with water resistant crushed leathers and lined with GORE-TEX.
This Dubarry leather absorbes 60% less moisture and requires 70% less time to dry than other types of leather, ensuring that your Dubarry boots will always stay soft and comfortable.
The secret of Dubarry boots is the GORE-TEX inner lining. GORE-TEX makes the boots 100% waterproof but wicks away perspiration keeping your feet dry.
The Galway boot is also surprisingly light in weight - much lighter than a rubber boot, and most other leather boots of a similar height and build."
