I already have black ones so fancy some colour ones too

The3Bears Sun 14-Oct-12 09:47:50

I have just got the black glossy ones smile Love them, they match everything which was what I wanted.

Traditional here with green but I do have a purple pair bought in 2010 when we had a wellie emergency!

FauxFox Sun 14-Oct-12 10:34:48

I've got pink, I had green as well but sold them because the pink ones make me happy grin

I've got a pair in a dark charcoal grey/silver colour, they are lovely and go with everything.

Had a purple pair but sold them as felt they looked silly with most of the stuff I wear.

Excellent wellies though, so comfy and have always kept my feet lovely and dry.

I have old purply ones I think they're aubergine. Purple but subtler, especially under all the mud etc

seeker Sun 14-Oct-12 11:46:30

Do they make them in any colour other than green? Who knew?

Meglet Sun 14-Oct-12 11:50:04

I have black.

I saw a woman in white wellies the other day, they were minging. You could see all the muck up them <<vom>>.

Mine were supposed to be 'chocolate' but tbh they are grey. Dull browny grey.

They are nice and go with everything.

SeveredEdMcDunnough Sun 14-Oct-12 13:07:57

I have black argyll ones too which also go with stuff.

I wouldn't get anything too bright.

I have navy- love them.

EdithWeston Sun 14-Oct-12 13:19:15

I have a classic green pair that are still going strong (since the late 1980s, I think). So green, or maybe navy. Nothing else really looks right over time.

DameFannyGallopsAtaGhost Sun 14-Oct-12 13:26:20

I genuinely had no idea that wellies were supposed to go with anything but mud or dogwalking.

sandycloud Sun 14-Oct-12 13:31:54

My husband bought me gold ones for a laugh. I nearly made him take them back. I get lots of comments on them. I wear them almost every day to walk the dog but they cracked badly after about 12 months. Not sure whether to get another pair considering how much they cost. Have grown quite fond of them now. They do start lots of conversations.

MedusaIsHavingABadHairDay Sun 14-Oct-12 15:27:21

Mine are cerise and I love 'em! (Got them in the sales where the choice was pink or frog green.. hence pink!)

MeerkatMerkin Sun 14-Oct-12 17:06:15

Mine match my dog.

The purple just felt a bit... conspicuous!

Purplemonster Sun 14-Oct-12 17:10:45

Mine are purple, I love them apart from the fact that you'd think they would realise that people with tiny feet also have short legs, they're a bit too tall, which is fine except I can't walk up and down stairs in them or sit in a car or they dig into the back of my knees.

Mirage Sun 14-Oct-12 17:17:56

They are terrible quality these days.If you are actually going to wear them as wellies,be warned,they'll crack and split within 12 months.I don't know anyone who buys them anymore,they go for Le Chameau,muckboots or Aigle instead.

traipsingalong Sun 14-Oct-12 17:38:05

Agree with Mirage. I needed new wellies recently, and went for Barbour tall ones. About £20 cheaper than Hunters, come in grown-up colours like navy and olive, and they're a serious wellie rather than the fashion item that Hunters have become.
