One of the first and most recognised in the Wellington boots family, Hunter wellies have become iconic in the world of country clothing and beyond for their timeless style and quality.
The classic Green boot was created over 50 years ago, in 1955, and remains popular to this day. Hunter boots were created originally for those who traversed the rugged terrain and unpredictable weather of Scotland, but their uses have stretched far and wide finding a welcome place among country and outdoor lovers around the world.
Officially established in 1956, Hunter found its footing when asked during WW1 to construct sturdy boots suitable for the trenches. Hunter’s reputation of durability, lasting performance and outstanding comfort is now the stuff of legend. This small Scottish company quickly garnered appreciation from the British Royal family and outdoor enthusiasts. Hunter easily found its place as a globally recognised company known for consistently keeping feet dry even in the worst conditions. To this day it is seen as an icon of British country living.
Hunter wellies are always created with pride. The company is dedicated to producing quality products, and continually seeking to improve and create new products to meet the needs of today’s diverse country clothing and wellies-wearing audience. Hunter boots for men, women, and children have been thoughtfully designed in a range of colours and styles to suit all needs and preferences.
Back in the early 1800s, Wellies were created out of a necessity which came from changing styles and times. They were adapted from the Hessian boot in the early 1800s and named after the creator who was the first Duke of Wellington. Wellies found their true place in the world during WW1 with the invention of Hunter Wellingtons.
Hunter’s dedication to quality and innovation continue to be a driving force behind everything they do. Whether you’re outside for work or for play, heading to a festival or working a farm, Hunter Wellies have a boot for you!
