Diem fishing boot

Post by Steve_T » Thu Jan 24, 2019 7:22 pm

Just bought some new boots, Diem Fishing boots, been looking round for a while and these are comfy, light and strong enough by the looks of them.

Diem All Terrain Fishing Boots benefit have a flexible, insulated textile upper with a waterproof lining ideal for cold wet days, moulded rubber sole with deep lugs for traction.

They are on sale at £39.99 reduced from £79.99 from several outlets
I will do a review on them to see how they perform and post up the results

Waterproof which is important, sturdy sole and insulated, my old boots are just not warm enough and they are wearing out now, they were a pair of snow boots dry comfy but not warm enough and I hate wellies. Edit now with photo

I have a pair of Mukluks that I bought over 40 years ago when I used to do a lot of beach fishing. They cost £40.00 then. They are still in excellent condition and keep your feet warm no matter what the weather. If you wear more than one pair of socks your feet cook. Wouldn't part with them!

Even if you have foot plates on your spade you will eventually wreck your boots...

I would agree with that. I am on my second pair of Amblers Skomer boots which are composite, insulated and waterproof, the sole completely split open on one due to digging but because they leaked I got them replaced. They are showing early signs of the sole going again but still great boots though. :D

It's the point of least risistence for any boot where contact is made to the foot assist on a spade, I must admit that I have had no issues with the Black Ada stainless, it has a wide foot assist and the boots I used have a thinner sole but gave no wear to the boot or pain to the foot. I could have used my slippers with it.....lol

After going through several pairs of boots and wellies I changed to a pair of Harris dry boots about 2 years ago. So far no problems and more than up to the job. In winter I wear two pairs of socks ( one thin liner and a woolie pair) and I would highly recommend these boots.

Update on the boots, I suffer from cold hands and feet and was hoping these Diem boots would do the trick, and they lived up to my expectations. i never felt the cold all day long and we were very exposed to the wind with no shelter

Also had some new gloves today, different to my normal ones that aren't available any more, my hands have never been so warm yet able to do more with these, opposed to much thicker gloves only £3.99 Delta Plus Apollon latex thermal work gloves from a well known provider of screws that fix!!

The wind chill must have been close to zero, coming from a north westerly direction, temperature showing on the car indicator was 3 c but it was colder than that due to the wind chill

Ground quite sticky from yesterday rain but the boots kept my feet dry and toasty all day long, no blisters against the norm of new boots.

Very little stuck to the boots

Warm and toasty

comfortable

High leg to protect the ankles and gives good support

Good sole to prevent feeling anything your stepping on

I cant fault them and glad i made the purchase of boots and gloves, will update as time goes on

Regards Steve

I've found only breathable boots remain toasty all day when walking around muddy fields, that rules out traditional wellies and anything else plasticky, hill walking boots, preferably goretex lined work a treat.
