I love them. But are they ridiculous?

I really do love these

But will people titter at me as I traipse past in my galoshes?

I wouldn't titter. I would say yellow is almost a standard Wellington colour.

Honestly ? I'd probably rather go barefoot but the important thing is that you said you LOVE them rather than like them so if that's the case then go for it.....And have fun splashing in the puddles grin

Aren't they a bit Captain Birdseye?

Royal we're a load of strangers....we don't know your style. I do think that if I ever need to ask anyone's opinion then it's because I'm not totally convinced myself. If you really love then then go for it, if you're not sure don't. If I saw you in them I'd just think you're a bit wacky,they're only Wellies after all and much more interesting than my boring/safe green

I'd wear them and care not a jot if anyone didn't like them.

PessimisticMissPiggy Sat 18-May-13 14:40:14

It depends where you'll be wearing them. Fishing boat!

They're just wellies. You can't get too emotionally involved smile

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 18-May-13 14:47:16

I think they are awful tbh - but if you love them, who cares? I agree that that they are a bit Captain Birdseye, but I think there are only 4 kinds of wellies that look nice - green Dunlop, red or yellow Hunters, red and white polka dots.

My first thought was Captain Birdseye, too. It's a lot of money to spend on comedy boots!

"They're just wellies. You can't get too emotionally involved" grin

Wolfiefan Sat 18-May-13 15:29:47

They are wellies. You are supposed to look a bit ridiculous (or is that just me?)

I like them but I can't stand Joules clothing, the branding makes me feel all stabby. Mind you Cath Kidson makes me feel stabby too.

Nehru Sat 18-May-13 16:32:54

wy do you like orange boots?

bulletproofgerbil Sat 18-May-13 16:36:11

I like them. With skinny jeans and an appropriate jumper/jacket/parka etc, I think they'd look cute. If you like them, get them I'd say.

EleanorFarjeon Sat 18-May-13 17:15:17

Are you a builder?

They look like rigger boots.

LaRegina Sat 18-May-13 17:20:03

They look like cartoon wellies to me - I didn't know what they were before, but I do now.

happyreindeer Sat 18-May-13 17:25:07

How can nice floral patterns make anyone feel stabby? Do not get it. Buy then op if you love them and stuff everybody else.Life`s too short to worry about wellies. I recently bought yellow converse and I love them.

tri10 Sat 18-May-13 17:28:09

I love them! But then I have short glossy purple hunter wellies so prob not the best judge.

My sis has this jacket

They would be perfect together if your into matchy matchy

EleanorFarjeon Sat 18-May-13 17:46:43

Cath Kidston makes me feel nauseous too.

I like rigger boots too.

I wear them for work if it rains.
