Hunter Wellies 1/3: The Original & Kids Collections

How to choose the perfect Hunter wellies

Whether it’s for riding, around the yard, a country walk, festival or out and about shopping, we have Hunter Welly styles to suit all. This blog focuses on our Original and Kids Collections.

The Original Collection

Hunter Wellies - Hunter Original Tall Wellies Red Original Tall

Hunter Original boots have been handcrafted since 1956. Hunter uses the highest quality rubber and individually tailors and assembles each boot from 28 parts. This detailing ensures a better, more comfortable fitting welly which offers durability, support and timeless country style. The Original wellies feature the Hunter logo, branded buckle and an orthopaedic fit. A Gloss finish version is also available in the Original Tall wellies.

Original Neoprene

All the great features and style of the Original Tall welly, but with a 3mm neoprene lining to provide warmth and enhance comfort for the wearer. Ideal for those colder months.

Hunter Wellies - Hunter Original Colour Block Black Dark RubyOriginal Colour Block

With the same fantastic features as the Original Tall, the colour block Hunter wellies are perfectly on trend right now. These wellies have the perfect combination of the matt black Original Tall boot but with the added gloss finish top.

Hunter Wellies - Hunter Original Back Adjustable Navy Crimson PinkOriginal Adjustable and Back Adjustable

The Original Adjustable and Back Adjustable wellies both combine the classic look and style of the Original Tall. They also offer an expandable concealed side or back gusset, allowing a more generous fit and flexibility around the calf area. Again these Hunter wellies provide an orthopaedic fit for all round comfort and are also available in a gloss version.

Hunter Original Short Gloss Wellies BlackOriginal Short

Hunter Original Short wellies present a shorter version of the iconic tall wellington boot and provide the same great features as the Original Tall. The shorter length makes these wellies easy to slip on and off, making them ideal for gardening, a walk in the country or for out and about. The Original short is available in a matt finish or in gloss finish.

Original Huntress

The Huntress welly is based on the Original, but has been designed slightly shorter in the leg to prevent pinching at the rear of the knee. The Huntress also features a wider calf to provide a wide instep which aids easy foot entry.

    1. Hi George,

      Thank you for your message.

      Hunter Wellies offer a closer fit than other wellies and tend to be narrower on the foot and leg. Hunters have been ergonomically designed to fit to the shape of the foot for maximum all day comfort. Unfortunately I believe you may struggle to get the Hunter Wellies on due to the narrower leg and ankle area. The Hunter Wellies with an adjustable leg may give you more space to maneuver your foot into the leg but the narrow ankle area may cause an issue for you. We offer a 28 day returns policy so you are more than welcome to try the wellies and return them to us if they are unsuitable as long as they are not worn outside.

      I would perhaps recommend a zipped boot that will allow you to get your foot in much easier. Le Chameau offer a zipped welly for easy putting on and taking off that might be more suitable. Please click here to view.

      Please be aware that this particular blog is from last season so some of the styles features may now be out of stock. Please click here to view our current range of Hunter wellies.

      I hope this helps and if you require any further advice please contact customer services on 01706 507555 or email [email protected]

      Kind regards
