Two of fashion’s finest, Hunter and Stella McCartney, collaborated in the creation of a gorgeously sustainable and vegan wellington, which made their debut in the Winter 2019 runway show in Paris. Crafted with sustainably-sourced natural rubber and Yulex, a kind-to-earth material used to replace traditional and synthetic neoprene, these boots are available in black, clatter grey and a stunning olive tone – we’ll be praying it rains just to sport these on our feet.
Completely waterproof for country walks and puddle-jumping, boots don’t come hardier than Timberlands. But these Kingsley heeled boots are sleek and feminine enough to double as work boots and team with your favourite midi-dresses for stylish (and dry-footed) commutes.
Featuring a premium leather upper and breathable Gore-tex membrane, your feet will be comfortable and cosy in these lace-up country waterproof boots.
If you want a waterproof boot that’s hardy enough for country walks, but stylish enough for city pursuits, this leather and suede tall boot from British brand Welligogs is just the ticket. Switch up the look by adding or removing coloured tassels.
Available in both adult and children’s sizes, these super cute Mathilde Cabanas X Aigle rain boots will make jumping in muddy puddles infinitely more fun.
A combination of waterproof suede, shell and leather to keep the elements at bay this season; these will look at home on the slopes or for muddy country walks in the UK.
The Rolls Royce of wellington boots, for when it’s coming down in buckets and only the real deal will do. Buy now, wear, very contentedly, forever.
The ultimate country boots. These Dubarry walnut brown boots feature a gore-tex lining and breathable leather upper.
Officially the chicest short wellingtons of the season; you can tuck your jeans into these short, Chelsea-boot-style Barbour wellies for a comfortable and (more importantly) dry-footed country walk, whatever the weather.
A previous winner of the New Footwear Product award at The Shooting Industry Awards, these boots will keep your feet warm and dry on those wet wintery shoots.
