What are the Skellerup Red Band Knee Length Farm Boots like?

From established New Zealand footwear brand Skellerup these iconic boots are made from thick, strong rubber and have a cotton lining. They have heavy duty soles with deep ridges for grip and a low heel. Inside there’s a cushioned foam insole. They’re available as a knee or calf length boot in sizes 6-14.

Are the Skellerup Red Band Knee Length Farm Boots comfortable?

Easy to get on and off thanks to their wide fit and a helpful, sturdy kickspur by the heel, these boots are surprisingly comfortable despite their solid, industrial look. They’re a little big for size and quite loose around the ankle for those with narrow feet but they’re particularly comfortable for anyone who needs a boot with a wider calf rather than the more fashionable fitted style. Your feet will stay warm and dry while reinforced toes provide further protection. A distinct heel and thick, deeply cleated soles provide excellent support and grip. They’re quite heavy and better suited to working rather than walking, plus some testers found the industrial style unappealing and not for everyday wear.

Will the Skellerup Red Band Knee Length Farm Boots last?

Designed for the agricultural industry these solid, heavy-duty work boots have been made to last and are hardworking, tough and durable; capable of standing up to whatever demanding jobs you throw at them.

Are the Skellerup Red Band Knee Length Farm Boots good value for money?

Thick rubber, sturdy soles and reinforced toes keep these robust boots tough and durable. They’re built for work and made to last and with their mid-range price tag we think they’re excellent value for money. They come with a one year warranty.

What are the Skellerup Red Band Knee Length Farm Boots best for?

These are hardworking boots, ideal for all tough jobs, including digging and hard landscaping and are handy for gardeners who prefer a looser fit or have wider calves.
