Winter walks have become a daily, or weekly, activity for many of us.
But wet weather that creates muddy paths, can be off putting, especially if you don’t have the right footwear – which may explain why wellies have become a very popular buy in 2021.
Why we rate it
The Dunlop Short Leg Half-Height Wellies boast a half-height length and a wide leg fit around the calf, so they don’t feel restrictive when you layer on thick socks and trousers.
They are 100% waterproof, have a heel height measuring 3cm, as well as a Hi-Grip Sole to help you navigate through tricky terrain.
The boots come in two colours: black and green, and are available to buy in UK sizes 4 to 12.
The Dunlop wellington boots vary in price depending on the colour and size, but loads of sizes are only £10.99, while others will cost no more than £19.99.
What the reviews say
The Dunlop Short Leg Half-Height Wellies have received over 7,000 ratings from shoppers, here’s what the reviews say:
“These wellies are fabulous! I have two pairs, one for the car ready for dog walks, one for general use. They are comfy, roomy, just the right height, and have a really deep tread making them safer than a lot of the competition. All that for such a great price. I just wish they were in different colours - I'd buy every shade.”
“I have Fibromyalgia and Arthritis and as well as all my other pain, I get very painful feet in cold weather caused by the fibro... this is the first pair of wellies I have found with just the right thickness sole within a decent price range and not feeling to clump heavy or like space boots, I have not had my foot pain once whilst wearing them.”
“Very comfy around the calf and I have large calves but could get my jeans in them. I would order your normal size and put a foot liner in for extra comfort on the sole, as you can feel the odd stone and this would make them fit well.”
“I've been buying Dunlop wellies for a few years now for dog walking. Nice and cheap and last ages even with pavement walking. These are my first short ones as I usually buy the long ones but if I get hot the long ones stick to my calves which is very uncomfortable. Nice deep treads and feel well made.”
“These are superb and ideal for an all-weather dog walker. Wide enough to tuck in one's trouser bottoms, they offer plenty of grip and have that sturdy feel to suggest many years of good service. 100% recommended.”
