General Tool Discussion / Winter / snow boots
« Last post by Raukodur on Today at 12:39:56 AM »
I am looking for some winter boots, and was wondering whether anyone would have any suggestions. I've been looking on the net but haven't had any luck fulfilling these criteria:

1) available in the UK
2) pull on or slip on design (no laces)
3) ankle, or slightly above ankle height (not just covering the foot or going halfway up the calf)
4) good quality, reputable company
5) waterproof, and good treads which will give good grip when we have the odd snowfall here in the UK

My price range is up to around £60, so I don't expect boots that I can go on arctic expeditions with.

Appreciate any suggestions / advice.

Just curious: could the pliers have worked to pry off the cover?  :cheers:

Possibly..... If happens again, I'll give the pliers a shot.  :cheers:

Fairly sure an axe would not work on a house-door. At least not fast, nor quite.
It won't be quiet, but an axe will make short work of a door. A lot of our volunteer fire fighters here carry them in there trucks.
Doors here are about 6cm thick, layered wood with a steel inlay (and that is a cheap house door, the one at my parents is 10cm)... sure, an axe will get through eventually, but it won't be short work.
So your doors are like ours and they get through them in no time. But I think this has more to do with where to hit the door. I am guessing around the locks and knobs. I watched them practice through steels door and was surprised how fast they can get through. But most criminals don't have..........
Smurf it , I am done with this thread....I said that to myself when I warned WO....whatever it his name is.
