Do you do pretty wellies or green/black practical?

I normally go green but am thinking of a pretty pair this time.

What do you do?

I've done pretty for a while but thinking I need to go Hunter as I keep killing them (dog walking). In order to afford those, I'll have to get the cheapest design I can find.

not sure what size feet you have, but my diddy size 4s fit into a lovely pink pair of kiddy Hunters, at a fraction of the price

I have navy blue hunters which I have practically lived in summer and winter (or it at least feels that way). I spotted a crack in them at the weekend tho sad ...but at least it means that I can go and buy a new pair of exactly the same smile

Deep purple Hunters. Love em. TKMaxx occasionally get them in at £40. More autumn/winter time though. Had them on earlier cutting the grass, they are the best.

say no to hunter get some Le Chameau. Rather pricey, to be honest I would never have bought them but husband got them as xmas pressie. They are so comfy, very hard wearing - have had mine 4 years - no cracking and I have danced for hours at festivals in them in complete comfort.

I wish I could afford them HZ!

I know coco, I was shocked when I realised how much they were but they have lasted the distance so far!

Wow hz and I though I was posh with Hunters (violet) grin

Green Aigles.

Are there any decent wellies which don't cost a small fortune?

I like these but have some blue Havainairas (?) bought cheap after my old skool original Hunters gave out after about 20 years. Hunters much better for walking in, though.

Don't wear wellies. Flip flops are your friends.

I do cheap - Tescos £12 smile

I don't know Coco, but I think it depends on your feet. I have very narrow feet and so normal wellies fall off me. Same with DD. It's a bummer because I would far rather not spend £50 on wellies!

I love my aubergine hunters, sort of a dark purple navy colour

Slubber, since when did your winkle have a wagon ?

For the thread: black Hunters for me.

Green wellies, customised with coloured dots from a school thingy.
