In a far distant land, a man by the name of Arthur Wellington, first Duke of Wellington, requested that his shoemaker modify his boots. Wellington, a high-ranking field marshal in the British/Allied Army, wore the same boots many soldiers wore at that time. Featuring a low heel and pointed toe, the boots provided great traction out in the field and were great for mounting horses. However, the first generation of these boots were made from leather to serve as a fashion statement but weren't very practical on the field of battle. The functionality wasn't really addressed until many years later when, during World War I, soldiers required something waterproof to combat the treacherous conditions. Rubber was introduced and the rain boot, or "wellie," as we know it was essentially born! FootJoy embraced the concept of functionality in 1985 and delivered the first FootJoy rubber golf shoe and boot. Featuring many of the performance and waterproof features that help make FootJoy #1, and backed by the industries best warranty, (guaranteed waterproof for six months or a free replacement), we may have missed the mark on style!

Let's just say that I don't think I would wear them. Got to vote for the "bury them" selection.
hmmmm... just when you thought this would be a difficult decision... BURY these! Oof!
Wow. Those are some killer boots but I'm going to have to pass. Definitely falling into the "bury them" camp this time around.
I would BUY THEM!
That is history right there.
Bury these bad boys....just not meant to be!
4 or 5 weeks ago that storm came through. boy that course was wet. these things sure would have come in handy when the course was nothing but casual water.
ahh but no, bury those things.
Sorry, but I would have to BURY them.....
Bury them...as quickly as possible.
I would have to go with Bury Them, if you would need a boot like that to play in you probably shouldn't be playing.
If I needed boots like that due to course conditions, I ain't playing. Bury them!
Bring them back!!!!! You can only wear shorts with them though.
Bury!! Quickly - -
Golfing 12 months out of the year hear in the northwest, raingear is a necessity. I would buy the lowcut shoe but the boot wouldn't do.
Buy them or bury them, I'd have to vote to bury them
