It’s a vent grommet. You’ll have to measure the width and try and find the same size. I doubt you will find that colour and I’m not sure if cobbler will have the gun to attach them.

one of mines burst aswell. 10 year old but bound to happen. It’s annoying when the zips go. Think one burst 2 year in and the other 4/5 year in.

I'd be quite keen to replace them to be honest. The colour is quite budget.

Anyone got a recommendation for ice gripper/anti slip spikes for boots to fit red wings decent? Those christy soles have absolute fuck all grip on ice. They are even slippy when it’s been raining on certain slabs in the city.

I’m a bit fed up with the faff of donning proper walking boots and gaiters for quick muddy walks.

Anyone recommend any decent Wellington boots that are comfortable to walk in for 2 - 4 miles?

Have a look on Westley Richards, as they have some deals of some of that sort of gear at the moment.

What's sizing like on North Face boots? I'm uk10 in nike, vans etc, 9.5 in church's and C7J and 9 in Ann D, Rick, TLC, etc. Should I be going for a 10?

My wife went half a size up compared to Nikes. She has quite wide feet though.

I wear buckbootz for work, average 10k steps a day 5 days a week through deep mud and water, tend to get about a year out of them but obviously last you longer with lighter wear. Can’t fault them.. comfy out the box too. Think they do a non safety toe version

Have some back to Berkeley’s and took my normal size 9, take a 10 in Adidas if that’s any help?

Thanks for the input. I’ve gone for Muckboots Chore II so will have to see how they get on in the proper deep mud and sludge we have at the moment.
