      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.

        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

      I pickup and stand on peg on a lot of days in the season and found the Brontolare boots
      the best I’ve ever owned. Unless it’s 6” water
      wellies stay at home !
      Excellent service from Jane and the company
      second year tough use still look new with a bit of care

    3. Mr A Parker

      My Diemme Brontolare boots with welted”low profile” sole, niche footprint with generous toe room and superb ankle support enable my continued participation in country sports. In short they are the best boots I have ever owned, and I have had em all! A Parker

      Received these boots two weeks ago..Worn straight out of the box and around ten miles first day..Not once did they feel new and stiff..Had them two weeks now and they are worn seven days a week and have been tested in all sorts of terrain and weather…Not once got the inside wet and they have been through some wet fields, woods and ditches..A very comfortable boot.. I will be beating in them and confident they will do the job of keep my feet dry and supported..Thanks

      I’ve just received a pair of Brontolare boots after taking advice from Jane, absolutely stunningly made, comfortable and didn’t need to be broken in,
      perfect fit from the off. Only thing left to say “If Carlsberg made slippers” Sean M. FitzGerald Lincoln.

      Just ordered a second pair as got my first last year, they are the perfect boots for me, wanted a second pair so on really wet days one pair can dry
      out whilst I am wearing the other. I would offer my recommendation for these boots they are the best boots I have owned. Ross

    7. Jean

      I have only given Brandecosse four stars as I really wanted these boots last year but they have only recently started ladies sizes so I had to wait, saying that I am more than pleased with them, oddly they didn’t take any time to wear in, comfortable straight away. Jean from Derby

    8. Tamsin

      I am cursed with both wide calves and diminutive stature and find high boots only accentuate these characteristics! However when I tried on these boots at the Scottish Game Fair I was delighted as they were the perfect fit and I look gorgeous in them. Many thanks to Jane and her team as they provided me with true attentive service. Tamsin – Angus

    9. Elaine

      With a large calf getting a good boot has been difficult, these are quite generous, seem to even slim my legs a little. Only gave them four stars as they have been out of stock for a while and I had to wait. Elaine – Cornwall

    10. Alexander

      I was a little worried about buying an expensive item online so called the office and spoke to Jane for advice on sizing, excellent service, the boots
      arrived the following day. The quality is just outstanding. Alexander – Fife

    11. William

      I saw these boots at The Scottish Game Fair this year, I was most impressed with the quality of the workmanship but made myself check out the other
      stands to see what else was on the market. No other brands stood up to these at the show and quite lot of choice out there, I returned and purchased
      a pair of Brontolare. I have been breaking them in over the past weeks with their first proper day out tomorrow with Grouse up in Scotland – more
      than impressed with them and the service I got. William Oxford
