It’s Hunter season

Ah, I hate rain but I love a good Hunter wellie. And lucky for me, Hunter season is nearly upon us!

Always a classic: Hunter Original in Green

Wellington boots originated back in World War I, as a response to the demand for footwear appropriate for European trench warfare. The North British Rubber Company rose to the challenge and later became Hunter Boot Ltd., the company that is still in business today.

Made of 100 percent natural rubber, these classics are perfect for stomping through any rainstorm. But the Hunter brand is also continuing to reinvent the boot. Check out some of this fall’s latest styles.

A rainbow of boot flavors

Clockwise above: May in Mahogany, Original in Apple Green, Original Tall in Candy Pink, Dallin Tall in Cuioio, Lapins in Spice, Chandler in Chalk, and Regent Savoy in Black.

  1. Wellington boots date back to the early nineteenth century and the Duke of Wellington who had some leather knee high boots made. Similar rubber boots still bear his name and are commonly called ‘wellies’!
    Billy Connelly was famous for ‘The Welly Boot song’ in the 1970’s! Very Scottish and very funny.
