I am in need of some new wellies , I can’t complain the ones I wear are about ten years old. They don’t owe me anything and have served me well. Now to find a new pair that I like as much. My hunter wellies had a few years of a rest because for a while my legs were to fat to fit into them but when I could get back into them they have been worn everyday at some stage . They are comfy to wear but a little slippery on muck. While I couldn’t fit into my hunter’s I tried wellies from Tesco , Pennies and Dunnes and to be honest while they did all look very pretty they were not really practical as farm wellies . They were more suited to maybe festival or maybe gardening wear .
I have my eye on a pair of peach coloured hunter’s for a while , they were at the horse show but were 90.00 which is a lot of money to hand out in one go. The other Hunter’s I had my eye on were black but were insulated against the cold which is a big problem in the winter when wellies have to be worn these were 120.00 . I would love a bright pair so when I am surrounded by men I still have something a little girlie but they really need to be practical, hard wearing and girlie looking which is hard to find in a wellie unless you spend a lot of money.
These are my wellie choices :
Hunter wellies of any colour , the insulated ones are black.
Joules wellies I don’t know how hard wearing these would be but they have lots of really pretty ones the ones with the bows might be a bit much for the farmers :).
Aigle wellies , these are very plain and maybe not girlie but if they are like there work boots then they should be hard wearing.
So what do you think, which should I go for ? or do you have a pair of wellies that are really good if you do let me know ? because my own are on their last days.
