  1. Tony Stevens

    I have a question. All my boots wear out on the heels and the uppers are still perfect . Can they be repaired

    • Jane Trueman

      Hello Tony, sorry for not getting back earlier, boots have been flyin out. All of our boots can be resoled, a good cobbler who stocks Vibram soles will be able to do this for you or if you can not find a local cobbler pop them back and we will get it done for you, cost about £40.00. Saying that the Vibram sole will take some getting through and important to look after the uppers to keep them supple but never an issue with resoling them. Best Jane

  2. James Humphrey (verified owner)

    I had already bought and returned two pairs of boots from other manufacturers that were both meant to accommodate my wide feet that have been experiencing neuropathy symptoms (toes which feel like they have been plugged into national grid).

    After multiple emails and/or calls with Jane & Mark who went out of their way to provide assistance, and even sent two different pairs of boots in different sizes to see which would fit me best. This even included checking internal measurements across the broadest part of the foot.

    Fast forward through a month of dog walks during lockdown and a number of days shooting, picking up & beating in Dorset, Kent & East Sussex, I can only delight in a truly wonderful product. I have never had any of the problems I experienced with wellies and marvel at the comfort they provide across very wet & muddy terrain.

    I love the Brontolare 9″ boots and look after them to make sure they will do a job for a long time to come. Great 5 star service with a fabulous product. I am really chuffed with my very comfortable boots and delighted I found a great firm to sell them.

    Best wishes for the future. I am sure that I will be back for more boots in the future.

    • Jane Trueman

      Hello James, thank you for that, good of you and delighted we got there, keep in touch, so good to hear. Best Jane

  3. Sidney Conibere

    Hi Jane had my boots for Christmas and have worn them four times so far, buying the next size up has been fine I just wear an extra pair of socks. I haven’t had any problems and have worn them straight from the box,a good fit and warm and dry. Thank you the size advice when I spoke to you before Christmas,many thanks Sid

    • Jane Trueman

      Hello Sidney,

      Thank you for your note, good to hear those Brontolare’s are looking after you. Kindest regards Jane

  4. Clive

    Bought a pair of these at the start of the season and I have to say they are the best boots I’ve ever owned. Given I wearing them the whole day, trudging through heather, streams, bracken and boggy fields, they stay warm, completely dry and totally comfortable. At the end of the day they easily wash down and buff up with leather balm ready for the next weekend. Brilliant and superb value, plus Jane is a star to deal with.

    • Jane Trueman

      Awh! Clive, how nice of you, thank you so much. Those boots sound as if they are having the life we designed them for, good of you to drop us a review. Kindest regards Jane
