Despite the chilly winter weather (and snow for some) we’ve been trying to get outdoors for a daily walk when possible during lockdown.

If, like us, you’ve finally given into the fact that you can no longer successfully dodge huge muddy puddles or walk through the marsh-like park in your less-than-waterproof trainers, it’s probably time to invest in a pair of wellington boots.

We’ve found just the pair: Hunter’s wellies have proved to be a huge hit with shoppers in recent months, so much so the highly coveted Original Tall Wellington Boots sold out in December 2020.

There has been a surge in shoppers buying the popular design, as Hunter states that sales of the reliable footwear increased by 89% from 2019 to 2020.

Luckily, the sell-out boots are now back in stock, although we expect they won’t be around for long.

Why we rate it:

Hunter’s original wellies are made from hand cut natural rubber. This means to boots are comfortable, waterproof and designed to last years.

The vegan shoes also feature a slight platform and a thick tread to help you stay upright on slippery surfaces.

The wellies also feature a stylish buckle strap on the side, which not only adds a chic finishing touch, but is also useful for tightening the top of your boot, or loosening it, for your comfort.

This design comes in a selection of colours, including matte black, an array of greens, white, navy, red and purple.

The boots are certainly an investment as they retail for £95, but they are made to last. Plus, with winter walks continuing to be our favourite lockdown hobby, the price per wear will quickly come down.

What the reviews say:

If selling out wasn’t enough proof these wellies are a must-have, they have also racked up nearly 2,000 five-star reviews from shoppers.

  • “Brought these for my wife for Christmas, she absolutely loves them 100% for comfort and most of all they are as waterproof as you would expect from a quality pair of Hunter’s.”

  • “You can't beat Hunter wellies for keeping your feet dry and for years of wear.”

  • “The fit were true to size and they’re so comfortable. I’ve been wearing them on mild days in the winter and they’re very warm with the socks. I would highly recommend.”

  • “It has been a lifesaver. The boots are so comfortable and I can revert to my childhood and splash through all the puddles and mud. How I wish I had purchased a pair of Hunter’s years ago.I love them.”

  • “These do the job and I like the way they look. These babies came just in time for a rather large snow and they have worked like a charm. Feet have been dry and warm.”

  • “I ordered the Hunter boot in navy and absolutely LOVE them. I am so happy with my purchase. Quality is excellent, colour is great and fit is perfect (I wear a size 8 shoe and ordered 8 boot). Comfy, waterproof and durable. Definitely recommend.”
