As summer comes to an end, and the colder winter months start to set in, you know it’s time to think about investing in some warm, comfy and waterproof boots. A good pair of high-quality boots is essential in the British country and a good pair of muck boots will provide the strength and durability you require. They are the best choice if you plan on heading out in the cold and wet, promising to keep your feet comfortable on even the coldest winter days. This makes muck chore shoes the perfect companion for anyone working in the British countryside.
The Traditional Muck Boot
Providing a multi-purpose footwear option, muck boots have been the must-have country boot since 1999. Originally designed specifically for mucking out the barn, these boots provided a whole new level of practicality. The goal was to create a boot which allowed the wearer to tackle the elements undeterred. Giving the freedom to combat rain, mud, snow and ice head on, muck boots are the obvious choice.
While muck boots provide a uniquely functional boot, being able to keep your feet both warm and dry, no matter what the weather, they aren’t the prettiest footwear option. For the style-conscious country lady or gent, muck boots can be a matter of ‘substance over style’. However, in more recent years, we have witnessed the evolution of the muck boot into a more attractive option which still remains as functional as the original. Country men and women can now enjoy the great outdoors without feeling like they have to compromise on comfort and style. Rydale provides specialist footwear for all types of outdoor activities, including work, farming, equestrian use and walking, ensuring there is a suitable choice for every occasion. Rydale has evolved the classic muck shoe into a range of stylish and comfortable, yet practical boots, which allow you to have the best of both worlds - substance and style!
With ranges suited for men and women, Rydale is dedicated to delivering boots that are high-quality and reliable. We have a fantastic range of waterproof boots technically designed to provide the strength and durability required for work in the country. Our selection includes a fantastic choice of styles, colours and designs, so you can remain as stylish as you are warm and dry. So, if you want to look and feel great whilst out in the country, take a look at our extensive men’s and women’s boot selections. Whichever style or design takes your fancy, our contemporary range of boots has all the practicality of classic muck chore shoes but has been refreshed with modern materials and bold textures, so you can always look your best - even when doing chores on the farm.

If you are looking for an all-rounder boot which serves as a multi-functional footwear option, ideal for all outdoor activities, no matter what the weather, then the new and improved women’s Tullymore III leather boots might be the perfect choice for you. These women’s boots are crafted from a supple yet hard-wearing genuine leather which not only promises complete durability but optimum flexibility to move.

A soft-stitched in-lining ensures the boots are comfortable, even if worn all day, and that your feet are kept warm in even the coldest weather.
Finished with a beautiful suede shaft which is available in two different colour options - navy or oak - the Tullymore III leather boots look great too.
