Let’s walk through some of the best wellington boots out there to avoid sodden socks and ruined shoes.
With the nation currently in lockdown, getting outside for a daily walk is more important now than ever.
It’s been proven that going outside for just 20-30 minutes can cut cortisol levels, the hormone linked to stress, by 10%.
But when it’s raining outside and freezing cold, it’s understandably harder to motivate yourself to go out for on your lunch break.
Now, we’re not saying a good pair of wellies will suddenly do all the work for you, but investing in a high quality pair will mean you’re prepared to get into nature whatever the weather.
These will have your feet protected against thick mud, large puddles and cold conditions.
Hunter Women’s Original Tall
Picking up a pair from one of the most iconic boot brands is never a bad shout, and they come in a range of vibrant colourways.
Get it from Hunter.
Seals Thermax Gusset Boots
Seals’ slogan is ‘always warm and dry’, which is great news if you’re planning on walking through deep puddles.
Get it from Seals Distributor.
Ilse Jacobsen Long Rubberboot
If you’re trend focused, the lace-up details take these from looking drab to casually stylish.

Le Chameau Vierzonord XL
This is Kate Middleton’s wellington boot brand of choice, so if it’s good enough for the royals, it’ll do for us too.

Everlane The Rain Boot
If you can’t stand the feeling of traditional long wellies, opt for these which still have a thick cleated sole to keep you out of the mud.

These are neoprene lined so will keep your toes warm even if you’re standing still in the cold – they’ll be good come snow too.
