Think of wellies and the first images that conjure up might be those of long muddy walks with the dog, messy festivals and flashbacks of a childhood spent splashing in and out of puddles. Wellies are your wet weather best friends and have never really been the first choice for a fashion statement, but now with so many awesome brands taking these rubber beauties and giving them an overhaul with colours and prints galore, wellies are now a big thing for winter style with a huge bonus – they really will keep your feet dry!
Proving that you don’t need to head to the big names in wellington boots in order to get a pair of boots that are both functionally great but good looking too, you can get the same quality and cool looks from brands at a fraction of the price. Some of my favourite are from Vans – these are a take on their classic checkerboard design and are available in a choice of different colours so you can brighten up any outfit. Based on the same style as the Vans Classic Slip On Shoes these are a great choice for wet and rainy days.
Another brand that’s making a bit of a splash is Bogs, and that’s down to more than just their great designs. Although there’s a choice of stylish and colourful boots for everyone, they’re also feature-laden and ready to take on anything from a light spring shower to a winter downpour. Each pair of Bogs Wellies feature easy pull-on handles so you’re not forever trying to peel them on and off, they are also 100% waterproof, sleek and comfortable too. These all-weather boots are made with 7mm of waterproof Neo-Tech insulation and enjoy moisture wicking properties so you’re not only dry but warm and comfortable too.
Wellies are back with a vengeance and proving that they’re not just there for a rainy day and with these great options available there’s no excuse for soggy wet feet again.
