GORE-TEX® Big Days UK Ambassadors - Autumn/Winter - Initial Thoughts

As you may remember we are GORE-TEX® Big Days UK Ambassadors. You can see when I posted back in the summer. We have recently received the monkeys Autumn/Winter shoes, signing for them just as we were walking out of the door to go an adventure to Thomas Land. A shame as had I taken the parcel the shoes would have been very handy on a very wet and windy October half term day.
So, when we got back home after the night away we were excited to see which shoes the monkeys had been sent.
Little monkey has these amazing Adidas Terrex Mid GTX GORE-TEX® ankle boots. I was afraid they might be too big as he is a UK10.5 and these are an 11 but they fit really well with some growing room.
Incredibly well made with GORE-TEX® extended comfort, they offer all day comfort, are durably waterproof and are extremely breathable. We cannot wait to put them to the test!
I love the colours, especially the bright laces which are tied via a toggle and then tucked safely away. Great attention to detail, on what look to be very sturdy and hard wearing boots.
Big monkey has an equally cool pair of black ankle boots from Viking. The Eagle II. 
From the GORE-TEX® extended comfort range just like little monkeys. These fab boots are fleece lined! How cool is that! 
Once again a great fit with room for big monkeys feet to grow, they should last through the winter. They too look Sturdy and hard wearing. These ones have velcro fastenings with stretchy laces, so again no laces to tie. We are off to the woods and for an autumnal walk to collect leaves and see how these GORE-TEX® shoes fair!

My initial thoughts are very positive. We all think they look great.

Keep watching to see our next post.
