A new name but still the same trusted, tried and tested design, you may also know the Harris Dry Boot as the well known ‘Viking’ or ‘Bridgedale’ that it replaces. We are one of a very small number of retailers for Harris Dryboots and hold brand new stock in all sizes for next day delivery.

The Harris Dryboots features 100 % waterproof rubber construction with a cotton lining and sturdy laces. Self cleaning, anti-clog soles make them ideal walking boots and suitable for almost any terrain. ‘D’ Ring lacing and full lining with additional padding to the ankle and along the footbed mean they stay confortable and last well. We have had several customers who report wearing the same pair of Viking Dryboots for 25 years (!) and the new Harris Waterproof boots are made by the same manufacturers using the same materials to the same high standards.

The Harris Dryboot is the ideal work/gardening/walking boot. Whether you are dog walking or fell walking the Harris Dryboot is tough, comfortable and reliable, and great value for money. Harris Dry Boots fit according to usual shoe size.

    Very pleased with these boots. Bought expressly for their water-proof quality having been through countless pairs of walking boots which have failed to stay dry. Very heavy – surprisingly so – but once on, this does not pose a problem. We don’t wear leather and I had presumed (never presume!) that as these are rubber they would fine for us. Can you confirm that no animal products or by-products are used in the manufacture? e.g. the glue and the rubber itself. Animal fat turns up in the weirdest of places…

      Thanks for your review Rachel, glad you are pleased with the boots. I can confirm that no animal products are used in the manufacture of Harris Dryboots.

    The boots are great, the size 10 was a little small for me but they were exchanged free of charge but I had to pay return postage which was £9. The laces really are to long but you can cut them and seal them with heat, but be carefull not to make them too short.

    This is my fourth pair- generally very good although quite heavy. The only significant problem is that the rubber compound on the sole is very soft- any use on hard surfaces very quickly wears away the tread leaving the boots very slippery and therefore unusable on hard wet surfaces- i.e walking back to a vehicle on a pavement after working in wet ground.

    It is so nice these days to have the level of service we received from the team at Boot&Saw, there was a slight problem which was resolved immediately with no fuss. My wife loves the boots as she cannot remember the last time she was able to walk our dog without coming back with wet feet! Can’t give the company or the product anymore compliments

    I am very pleased with the boots so far. After years of purchasing so called
    ‘waterproof’ boots it’s nice to return home from walking the dog with dry feet. If I was to be really critical of the boots, I would have personally liked a wider heal.

    Went out of their way to ensure I received my boots next day, also wrote on my parcel where to leave them safe. I would HIGHLY recommend this company. So far so good they’ve kept my feet dry. I’ve gone through umpteen pairs of Wellington’s but all split at the sides, I do hope these last though.

    I’ve had a pair of the original Bridgedale Viking Dryboot for over 20 years which have given good service. My feet have grown and spread so I was looking for a replacement. I was pleased to find the same boot (under a different name)was available. I’ve had these for 2 weeks and they are every bit as good as the originals. Service and delivery were spot on.

    I have already reviewed the Harris Dry Boots but having just bought yet another pair I thought I would reiterate that these boots are the only 100% waterproof ankle boots out there. Tried so many that said “100% waterproof” and they all let in water, even expensive brands like . Not only are the Dry Boots waterproof but they are incredibly comfortable. I use mine every day in spring, winter and autumn and I can walk miles and miles and return home with dry feet and no discomfort at all.
    My new Harris Dry Boots were delivered very promptly indeed and cusatomer service from Boot&Saw has always been first class.

    The first time I have bought these and so far I am very pleased. I have tried expensive and cheap leather boots over 20 years and have never found any that remained waterproof. Such a pleasure now to get back from my morning walk in wet fields with bone dry feet.

    Boots are absolutely brilliant, craftsmanship is great they certainly feel sturdy and strong. Hoping to get a lot of years out of them. Boots are what they say and I didn’t get wet feet up to the second to last lace hold. Also customer service is brilliant with astounding delivery, arriving the day after I ordered them. Would happily buy from Boot and Saw again you’ve been great!

    I had a pair of these many years ago and didn’t realise until now how much I missed them. On ordering I was slightly worried about getting the sizing right (went with my regular shoe size) so I was pleased to find the fit was perfect. I used the boots for thee days on a muddy festival site. What a joy!

    Fast delivery from Boot & Saw. The boots are comfortable and waterproof so far, though I have only had them for a few weeks. The laces are longer than they need to be, but that’s easily resolved. I spend a lot of time crouching when I am in the garden, so the first part that usually breaks on my boots is the sole splitting away where the foot is flexed. I am curious to see whether Harris Dryboots last longer than other walking boots I have tried for gardening.

    I was fed up with buying ‘waterproof’ walking boots that leaked after a few weeks and sick of wet feet so I decided to try these. I have had them for a week, used every day for dog walking and the fields have been wet. My feet have stayed dry and comfortable, I have blisters on both heels but that is usual for me with new shoes/boots. Look forward to many months of dry feet

    A good quick and efficient service from the unusually named boot and saw . It’s early days , but so far the boots have proved comfortable and most importantly , waterproof . I have spent quite a lot of money on so called waterproof boots which have proved anything but ….

    David Penn (verified owner)

    I’ve had these now for over six months.
    They are sturdy and robust and ideal for working in the garden (muddy or otherwise!).
    They are also surprisingly quite comfortable – perfect for rambling for hours in the countryside.
    In fact, I wore them happily recently for two stretches of 4 and 6 hours clambering across the rough/uneven ground off the main paths at the wonderful Westonbirt Arboretum.
    One important point to mention, though (and this is why I have marked down to 4*) – although they are certainly waterproof in the sense that they don’t let water in from the outside, that’s unfortunately not to say that your feet can’t get wet from the inside, because they can: After my hours wearing these boots at Westonbirt (in pleasantly warm, but not really hot weather) my feet had sweated quite a lot in these all-rubber, unventilated boots and parts of my socks had become quite soaked and needed changing for comfort before the drive home [in regular shoes].
    Apart from that, highly recommended!

    Decided on these after reading all the reviews and getting wet feet with other boots. I walk and run a lot with my dog in all weathers so I found wellies too cumbersome.

    These boots are just brilliant. They are roomy, comfortable and totally waterproof. I walk between 5 and 10 miles a day with my dogs plus muck out two horses and I haven’t had one single leak!
    I am a size 7 and I would say the boots come up slightly large but then it gives enough room to add an extra pair of socks or some fluffy insoles.
    The service from Boot and Saw is extremely good and friendly and I. Definitely going to buy from them again. One very happy customer, I am.

    I bought these for walking the dogs on the beach and muddy tracks as well as to be used on my allotment during the colder and wetter months and couldn’t be happier. If there was and option for a sixth star then Boot and Saw would get it for their prompt and beyond the call of duty customer service.
    I have wide feet and these fit like a glove and were instantly comfortable with no need for breaking in. I’ve added a pair of quality insulated boot liners to the combination and after five miles in the sub-zero temperatures on the beach, through the rock pools and muddy tracks this morning, my feet were the warmest and driest they have ever been.
    Hesitating? Don’t – Get a pair now!

    I was really happy to find out the dry boot is still being made. I had many pairs of this boot (both Bridgedale and Viking) in the 80s and 90s. This is the only truly waterproof boot I have ever owned and is just as comfortable as Berhaus etc which are twice the price. Boot and Saw were great to deal with and I will be buying another pair of these for my wife in due course. Now the dry boot is back I wont buy anything else

    “HARRIS DRYBOOTS The ultimate tough boot that does exactly what its name suggets ” that was the headline I found in my july issue of LAND ROVER MONTHLY. As I looked for such a product for a long time I ordered them with BOOTSANDSAW. Delivery to Germany was fast and the boots met perfectly my expectations: tough, waterproof and comfortable. But what is even better is an outstanding service to solve minor quality issues and a short response time on emails. Product and supplier highly recommendable.

    Had a pair for Christamas from my wife to use whilst I’m fly fishing at my local reservoir, which has sloping grass banks, i have now worn them a number of times and can fully recommend them, they are totally waterproof and provide excellent grip even on slightly muddy ground, they feel a little heavy but this is not at all noticeable whilst being worn.

    I keep wearing the heels down on fitted wellingtons so after reading the reviews am really hopeful my new Harris’ will last longer than a couple of months. I was surprised how heavy they are but they are very comfortable to wear and don’t look enormous. Very speedy delivery too.

    I’ve just received a pair of Harris Dryboots to replace my Viking Dryboots which I’ve had for at least 15 years. I’m so glad someone has decided to stock these boots. The Harris are just as comfortable as the Viking. These boots are the only ones I’ve ever been truly comfortable in when walking any time of year. Excellent service from Boot and Saw – prompt delivery.

  68. Annabel (verified owner)

    I bought these boots as an alternative to wellies as I have a long term injury to my foot and can’t tolerate long boots. They are totally waterproof, solid and well made. Sadly however the construction of the base of the boot (they are very hard with little give) does not suit my injured foot and although I can use inserts and padding they are not the most comfortable boots to wear for any length of time. They would be brilliant for those with ‘normal’ feet but not for those with foot issues. Still would recommend.

    I have been using Viking Dry Boots for over twenty years and have always found them most satisfactory. A pair usually lasts for two years and cover 2/3,000 miles, of varied terrain but mostly soft going. Thankfully Harris has taken up the brand and I look forward to many more dry, comfortable miles.

    These boots are the ultimate. I first had a pair years ago (Viking) when we had an Irish Wolfhound. I would walk 6 plus hours a day in very harsh terrain, and this boots was the only thing that kept me warm and dry. The soil was heavy clay and with other boots I would finish up with around a stone of earth on each foot. I have permanently cold feet and these did the trick. They lasted 7 years before the sole was smooth. that was all that was wrong with them and we thought about re sole-ing them, but my husband treated me to a new pair of dry boots. Can not recommend them highly enough!

    I’m so pleased that someone took on the production of the viking dryboot I have had at least four pairs over the years they are the only boot that will stand up to twice daily four season dog walking without tedious maintenance not only are they totally waterproof but comfortable to wear all year round
    the Harris version appears to be identical to the viking i still have my last pair of vikings and use them in the garden the soles are all but smooth – they must have done at least 2 thousand miles (that would be the ultimate dream Harris dryboots with a vibram sole – they would probably last forever)
