Guide to Choosing the Perfect Pair of Wellingtons from The Welly Shop

Here are our Top 4 important options/ points for consideration in choosing your perfect pair of wellington boots as taken from our website

1. Lining

If you are looking to walk in Winter as well as Summer it's worth considering a neoprene lined wellington boot as this means your feet stay warm as well as dry. 

Some wellingtons from Aigle and Le Chameau are suitable for use down to -20C so the rigours of everyday life in the UK or most of Europe should be no problem for these boots.

2. Sole

The key for a good wellie boot to use for walking is the tread pattern. 

The patented Vibram sole is probably the best for walking so boots with this sole are great for even long walks. You'll forget you have them on. It depends how often you are wearing them whether it's worth the investment. If you are wearing them everyday for long walks however, it's a 'must'!

3. Calf Size

Check the calf size of the wellington boots so you can walk confortably in them. There are now more styles of wide calf boots available.

4. Getting Them on and off 

You can now purchase zipped boots for ease of removal. The gold standard in wellington boots! 

These tend to be on the high price side, so another option is one of our boot removers. They do the job as well and are more cost effective.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Have a soleful day!
