Warm wellies cope with chill climes

FANCY toasted tootsies? Hevea UK says its Thermo+ wellingtons have been tested in Arctic Russia for their effectiveness at combatting the cold.

The Thermo+ is manufactured from a special polyurethane compound, composed of millions of microscopic air bubbles.

At the business end the boot has a 35mm thick anti-slip sole, while inside there is a Texon insole to reduce the risk of sweaty feet. Price is about £55 (01295-273336).
