The UK sees around 33.7 inches of rainfall every year and we experience approximately 133 rainy days, so it’s no surprise that wellingtons remain a popular staple for every Brit’s wardrobe. Worn for gardening, festivals, camping or even walking the dog, wellies are worn for practicality and fashion too!
Humbly known as wellies, wellington boots were originally worn by British Army officers in the 18th Century, worn for their practical and protective qualities. The wellington boot was named after the Duke of Wellington who is thought to have popularised the boot back in 1917. Originally crafted in rubber to give their waterproof protection, wellies have evolved over time, so you’ll find wellies in a range of materials, colours, sizes, and heights to suit every occasion!
