Gum boots? are they Wellington boots that are made out of chewing gum?
Quote from: Make it Lady on 23/02/2009 20:23:41Gum boots? are they Wellington boots that are made out of chewing gum?NO - you are just being silly now.In my part of the world, Wellington boots are made out of cow leather and horse-hide and are tough as nails. I have owned a pair of leather Wellingtons for over 32 years and they fit like a pair of old comfortable slippers and are still in good working order. They were custom made for my feet and have an unusual zipper in them in order for my cloven hooves - er, make that "my arthritic ankles," can fit into them. All that is needed for maintenance is a little linseed oil or lanolin and the occasional new soles and heels. So in order to differentiate between you silly people who believe you can make "real" boots out of rubber, I will call them gum boots so these less sturdy boots will not be confused with real leather boots.I do believe you have heard this expression before and are just being obstreperous.
