Must Haves: Hunter Wellington Boots


As I pack my things for my rowing training this evening, I realise that my wellington boots (unfortunately my boat club has a "muddy" slipway as we row on a tidal stretch of river) are absolutely filthy and the insole and lining has been worn to pieces. Sigh... time to invest a new pair methinks.

This, and a recent question about appopriate footwear for a music festival (read: mud bath), had me thinking about Hunter Boot Ltd. This iconic manufacturer of footwear has an enviable reputation for making the best wellington boots in the market. In fact, they are the holders of a British Royal Warrant in recognition of their fine craftsmanship.

Hunter make a wide range of footwear and have worked with a number of high profile designers (including Jimmy Choo, above). Their products come in an array of styles and colours so surely have something for every prep! For watersports or fieldsports, Hunter wellies are a preppy Must Have and so I have decided to include them on my list. Get yours at Hunter or Amazon.
