Ever since Kate Moss was papped wearing a pair at Glastonbury back in 2005, Hunter wellies have been a legit festival season staple. They’re iconic, extremely practical and virtually written into the festival dress code.
The Original Tall Wellington Boot continues to be Hunter’s bestselling boot every year. At £95, they’re a seriously sensible investment – both in fashion and dry feet.
A slightly more compact, cheaper version of the classic welly launched last summer and Hunter are predicting it’ll be the next big thing in welly fashion. “It is fast becoming a key player and sales have been hugely successful,” they told GLAMOUR.
The Original Play Tall Wellington Boots are a slightly more affordable, extremely fashionable update on the OG welly. They’ve got a flatter platform sole than the original and reach midway up the calf. They’re fully waterproof, made from 100 per cent rubber and specially engineered for a lightweight feel. They’re available in eight different colours, including a particularly sweet candy-floss pink. We also like them in pale blue, bucket blue, thistle and wader yellow. These babies come to £85, which you’ll probably be thankful you forked out, when you’re submerged in mud and dancing to Stormzy this summer.
“We offer next day delivery on all products so everything can be purchased super close to Glastonbury should it start to rain – which is likely!” Hunter said.
As we get closer to the 26th June, all 135,000 festival-goers will be Googling weather forecasts and wondering whether they need to prepare for a downpour this year. Last minute wellies purchase, anyone?
