Stay Dry and Look Good with Wellington BootsA good pair of wellington boots does more than just keep your feet dry. Wellies show a great deal about how we interact with the great outdoors and how seriously we take the travails associated with wet weather.
This page's contents include a range of wellingtons from the stark and functional basic boot, right up to top of the range. Whether you need boots to get around the farm, or a pair to be used as backup in case the weather turns nasty at a music festival, you will find all you need here.
The basic design and functionality of men’s Wellington boots has not changed much since they were conceived by the Duke of Wellington in the early 19th century. While the original boots were crafted of leather, and modern boots are mostly made of rubber, they generally all encase the foot entirely and extend up the shin to provide protection from the rain and mud.
Grip on the bottom of the boots is also essential given the rough terrain they are usually faced with. Anyone who has tried to leave a rain soaked Glastonbury festival on the Monday can attest to this.
No Nonsense Wellies
The traditional look for men’s wellies has to be the green rubber boot - simple, affordable and effective. With a design and build that has not changed for generations, these wellies are the epitome of the saying 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. It is probably fair to say that they will not change for the foreseeable future.
If you are looking for something a little less utilitarian, you will find all manner of beautifully crafted boots, some made from leather, some even with laces. Each pair will keep your feet warm and dry in the face of a deluge.
