I have a pair of red Hunter wellies which are currently my one-and-only pair of tall boots. I've mentioned before my issues with finding boots, but my current status is simply that I've spent my 'big ticket winter item' budget for now. Buying a new pair just isn't an option this season, for various reasons - next winter it shouldn't be a problem and I will search for the perfect winter boot.

My question is this - when there is knee-deep snow on the ground, would it look ridiculous if I stuck two pairs of wool socks on and slipped into my wellies? Would they look odd with a winter coat? In a way I can see it looking fab and funky, but I don't want to walk down the street and have people think I'm loony for mistaking the seasons! I just wouldn't mind some waterproof benefits when I'm taking my daughter on walks, etc!
