WIN­NER

■ Bogs Cran­dall Tall £110; ro­han.co.uk From muddy fields to rainy tar­mac, these boots per­formed ex­cep­tion­ally well in all our tests, main­tain­ing a good, re­li­able grip on all sur­faces. They are ex­pen­sive, but testers were im­pressed with the com­fort and the fully water­proof fea­ture. They also loved the loop on the back of the boot, handy for pulling them on for a snug fit. 98/100

RUN­NER-UP

■ Muck Women’s Arc­tic Week­end Short Boots £95; muck­boot­com­pany.co.uk Our testers were pleased with the sturdy grip, es­pe­cially af­ter heavy rain and when gar­den­ing. They were 100% water­proof, which makes them a re­li­able choice. These slightly shorter boots come up to mid-calf and are easy to pull on, and warm and comfy thanks to the fleece lin­ing. 96/100

BUD­GET BUY

■ Joules Tall Printed Welly £49.95; joules.com These boots are easy to pull on and move around in thanks to the flex­i­bil­ity of the nat­u­ral rub­ber ma­te­rial. They also per­formed well when gar­den­ing on slip­pery, muddy sur­faces. They’re com­fort­able and water­proof. Testers’ only bug­bear was that some found the in­soles slipped out of place. Avail­able in a wide range of de­signs. 79/100
