Choosing Wellington Boots

Wellington boots are essential right now! With so much mud and rain, wellies are perfect to stop your other shoes getting ruined. They were worn and popularised by Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington, where the name comes from.

Wellington boots are water proof and are usually made from rubber or PVC, they are ideal when walking on wet or muddy ground, for example dog walks, festivals or farmland and protect the wearer from muck and puddles. The traditional green wellington boots were introduced in 1955 and Paddington Bear is recognisable by his red wellies.

We stock the typical green wellington along with funky styles for women and children, such as polka dot for girls and cow print for women. We also stock wellington boot socks, which are extra-long, ideal for pairing with your wellies and keeping your foot and calf nice and warm.

    There is an excellent new Wellington Boots Repair Kit recently made available. I think it uses both Stormsure Glue (brilliant stuff) an the TUFF Tape. You can repair leaks in wellies with this stuff and it lasts for years.
