Mens wellingtons - get your festival groove on!
Mens wellingtons are an all year round item of footwear. They provide comfort and warmth in the winter and are a festival necessity in summer!
Many designers recognise the growing trend for wellies and, as a result, you can now buy them in every hue and design imaginable.
There are the traditional green calf length wellingtons that are associated with walks in the country and then there are top of the range wellies like those manufactured by Hunter. These can be full or mid length boots and are exceptionally durable and waterproof.
Stores such as mandmdirect offer up to 75% off wellies while others like wellie-boots sell not only Hunter wellingtons but also safety and Argyll farming boots too. Many of these sites offer free shipping within Ireland which is an added bonus as wellingtons are quite a heavy item.
If you're looking for a stockist then you'll have plenty of choice as most equestrian and outdoor stores have a range of mens wellies.
During the winter, certain budget stores such as Aldi and Lidl often get wellies in along with their weekly specials line. Even in summer there is a possibility that wellies will appear whenever gardening equipment is on sale. In this instance you can expect to pay considerably less than in your local equestrian store.
Basic wellingtons cost upwards of around £20 but Hunter boots are considerably more with the average price being around £60. Army surplus stores usually stock the generic wellies and also those with steel capped toes which are ideal for heavy outdoor activities.
