men’s shearling boots and two dog harness and lead sets

 

Viihahn Men’s High-top Lace-up Fully Wool Lined Genuine Leather Upper Shearling Lining Winter Snow Boots

Product Details

These are a very attractive pair of boots and I’m really impressed, but as other reviewers have said they are small for size.

Grandson wears an 8 and son in law an 8.5 so I ordered 8.5 thinking it would fit one of them ok. Sadly though they are too small for son in law and only just fit grandson. I really should have ordered a size larger. they are quite narrow too, both of them have narrow feet but bear that in mind if you don’t.

They have a good rubber sole, with grips at the bottom and quite thick and springy making them comfortable for long periods. The thickness should keep out some of the cold in snow, when it penetrates shoes with thin soles.

They are incredibly soft and flexible, with the lining being really warm and thick. I suppose with time that will flatten but sheepskin being a natural fibre its great not only for warmth but for absorbing sweat and keeping feet dry. In the cold wet feet are really uncomfortable.

I’d treat these with a waterproof dressing for shoes to help add more protection.

They lace up and come right up over ankles, and should keep the whole foot snug. They’re not wellies, not Dms and in wet slushy snow, the same as most boots, they’ll let in water but in crisp dry snow, cold icy days they will be perfect.

Get a size larger than you think and you could wear them all day long.

I just wish I’d gone for larger size ( or smaller so I could wear them – well one anyway…the other would join my trove of un-used shoes….)

 
Adahome Pet Adjustable Harness And Leash Set Matching Collar & Lead Available Separately 002

My daughter’s dog Flash was the testers for this harness. Details are: male, lab x springer spaniel,  7 years old fully grown, neck 44cm, chest 79cm, length 72cm, weight 26kg.
He usually wears a collar as its been difficult to find a harness thats fits well, and in just a collar he tends to pull. This harness was a great fit, strong and tough, and lots of adjustment for size. Roxy has had a harness for a while, she’s younger and more boisterous and walks with her are hard. In a harness though its so much better, so we’re hoping for the same with Flash. Whether its just that the chest pressure confuses her or makes it hard to pull I don’t know but with a small tug she’s back walking at the side.

This smart harness comes in three sizes and four colours. Its made of a soft nylon rope webbing and nicely padded.
It took me a while to find EVA online and see what it is, but its the soft rubber insde to the harness which makes it comfortable for the dog, and wipes clean too! You can wash the whole thing, but just wiping over inner with a damp cloth will keep it fresh between washes.
It feels as though it will dry very quickly, useful if caught out in the rain when the smell of wet dog can last in a slow to dry collar such as the cotton or leather types.

The fit is very adjustable and Flash has the Large size, surprisingly fits him well at the smaller end of adjustment. He usually struggles to fit a size L, but there’s loads of room in this, and in fact when we put it on him as it came, pre adjustment it slipped straight off when Brennan “took” him for a walk for photos….
It’ll fit much larger dogs and is very thick and robust for those that need the extra strength. He also had another from the same sellers, in size L but that’s much smaller and he needed it on highest size setting, and even then I think used for long periods it might rub, whereas this one is just perfect. That one will probably become a spare for Roxy.
Its got a very easy to snap together fitting to do up, and metal rings for the lead attachment. The rings for the lead on this are in the centre back of the dog, so easy to attach.
The lead has a metal hook, is a good length, with a very comfortable simple handle and made for the same wide, strong fabric as the harness making a smart set for larger dogs ( and smaller ones of course in the smaller sizes, but they tend to get more choice.)
Adahome Reflective Pet Leash with Handle Adjustable Protective Nylon Walking Pet Harness,Dog Training Harness & Lead Set 001

My daughter’s dog Flash was the tester for this harness. Details are: male, lab x springer spaniel,  7 years old fully grown, neck 44cm, chest 79cm, length 72cm, weight 26kg. (57lb)
He usually wears a collar as its been difficult to find a harness that fits well, and in just a collar he tends to pull. This harness was strong and tough, but even on the largest setting only just fitted Flash. He also had another from the same seller which was also a size L but a much better fit. This one says for dogs 40-60lb, and the other which is still size L says 60 – 80 lbs. If your dog is close to 60lb I’d say try that one instead.
Its ASIN: B01KNZW3BK
Roxy has had a harness for a while, she’s younger and more boisterous and walks with hewr are hard. In a harness though its so much better, so we’re hoping for the same with Flash. Whether its just that the chest pressure confuses her or makes it hard to pull I don’t know but with a small tug she’s back walking at the side.

This smart harness comes in three sizes and six colours. Its made of a soft nylon rope webbing and nicely padded. The harness is a flat webbing while the lead is rolled with a padded handle.
It took me a while to find EVA online and see what it is, but its the soft rubber part of the handle.
It feels as though it will dry very quickly, useful if caught out in the rain when the smell of wet dog can last in a slow to dry collar such as the cotton or leather types.

The fit is very adjustable and Flash has the Large size, which fits him, but only at the upper end of adjustment. Its not a thick as the other harness either. Look at the weight restrictions and compare with your pet before buying, you may find the other suits better if you’ve a big dog.
It’ll be fine for smaller dogs and is a well made, attractive and smart set. Flash needed it on highest size setting though, and even then I think used for long periods it might rub, whereas the other one is just perfect. This one will probably become a spare for Roxy.
Its got a very easy to snap together fitting to do up, and metal rings for the lead attachment. The rings for the lead on this are in the centre back of the dog, so easy to attach.
The lead has a metal hook, is a good length, with a very comfortable EVA padded handle and made for the same strong fabric as the harness, but is rolled instead of flat. We’ve had other leads, collars and harnesses from this seller and they’ve all worn well.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
