It’s no secret that this summer has been a complete washout. As soon as the school holidays started so did the rain, and it just puts a dampener on things doesn’t it. For a family, things just become more hard work. Going on days out doesn’t have quite the shine it should and festivals can turn into a complete mud bath. Fortunately our My Little Pony boots came to the rescue on more than one occasion, and I want to share with you why we love these boots from The Original Muck Boot Company even more now.
When I was younger things like the rain didn’t bother me so much, but these days bad weather really grates on me and makes me feel a bit slouchy if you know what I mean. As a parent, getting the kids to appreciate the need to wear warm clothes and appropriate footwear is another conversation I’d be quite happy to give a miss if I’m honest. They like to choose there own clothes and shoes, but they haven’t quite grasped the need to factor in the weather yet.
This is why our My Little Pony Hale Boots from The Original Muck Boot Company have been a complete godsend and have really stepped up this summer. As you might remember, we reviewed the Twilight Sparkle Boots last year and we thought they were great then. This year we have really put them through their paces, and we are even more impressed with the quality and design.
Great Features With My Little Pony Hale Boots
The girls choose different designs this time, going for the Rainbow Dash Hale Boot and the Pinkie Pie Hale Boot. The way these boots are made is just fantastic. They look amazing and have some super cool features as well.
If your child is a My Little Pony fan then they will love the My Little Pony face that appears on the boot. The rest of the boot features the colours from the My Little Pony character and there is even the all important cutie mark on the heel of the boot. No one will mistake that this is an official My Little Pony boot given these features and they are bound to get a lot of comments from other My Little Pony fans as we experienced at Camp Bestival.
The cool design means that both the girls loved wearing their new boots from The Original Muck Boot Company without any arguments at all. What they didn’t realise was that these boots took a huge weight of Mummy’s mind too. Having good footwear when the weather is plotting against you is so important. There is nothing worse than cold wet feat when you are meant to be enjoying a lovely day out or you are trekking around a festival.
Firstly the top of the boot is soft and flexible making them extremely comfortable to wear, so kids are happy to keep their boots on all day if needs be. The inner sole of the boot is super comfortable as well which I think is rare for kids wellingtons. The ankle of the boot is fitted making for a really secure feel which makes a big difference when you are walking around all day, especially when you have little legs.
Where the Muck® Boots really come into their own is with the super tread they have on the bottom of the boot. This is the best tread I’ve seen on a childs’ outdoor boot and I have to admit it’s worth every penny. The girls wore their boots to Warwick Castle for the day and it had rained so the ground was a bit on the slippy side. We also saw showers that day too. With the My Little Pony Hale Boots they could run and play without fear of slipping or sliding on the grass. It might as well have been a dry summer’s day for all they knew.
The test really came at Camp Bestival and we weren’t sure how the boots would cope with the mud and the slopes we were faced with. One of my worst fears was having one of the girls slip over in the mud and having to deal with the fall out from that given the severe lack of hot showers and having a very grumpy child on my hands. Kids love mud, but they hate being dirty in the next breath.
Well, our Muck® Boots really came through for us to be honest and neither of the girls fell over at any point. My daughter and I took on a rather steep hill that I can only describe as a mud slide. We were heading down it into the festival and she didn’t fall or slip once. At that point I was so jealous of her boots and wish I’d have had a pair of the gorgeous Cambridge Mid Waterproof Wellington Boots to get me through this rather sticky situation.
When it really counted the girls My Little Pony Muck® Boots really came through keeping their feet warm and dry but also keeping them safe in a very muddy situation. I cannot speak highly enough of the Muck® Boots range, and think they are a great investment if you are planning on taking the family to days out which are mainly outdoors or are going to be visiting a festival this summer.
