Big flowery patterns?

Polka dots?

Plain green?

What do you think?

They're ok. That was simple wasn't it!

They have to go with a brown coat though I think. that's my warm waterproof I'll be wearing in the evenings when camping. I know I really really shouldn't worry about colour co-ordination when going to a loo block in a field on a wet evening, but you know...

Pale blue ones perhaps?

CaptFabioHiltsCatInTheCooler Sun 03-Aug-08 21:38:32

It's the only way to go.

How about these

Although perhaps pink ones would go better with a brown coat?

£55!!!!! shock

Now, the blue I've just decided I'm after is the nice one when you open the shocking £55 link! grin

Do you feel like a grown up when you wear flowery ones???

PeaMcLean Sun 03-Aug-08 21:57:43

pale blue but too dull???

AllBuggiedOut Sun 03-Aug-08 22:02:37

A few at Joules if you have v large or v small feet (presumably new styles/sizes will ones in after the sale?). Or Boden.

Try Primark.

I got a pair of red wellies, with a white floral type pattern on them, recently. Just £8 a pair. Wore them recently on a camping evening even thing. Perfect.

thanks for the joules link they've got these in turquoise.

I'm after some wallpaper the same as those boden ones grin

PeaMcLean Sun 03-Aug-08 22:14:53

Bugger. No they haven't, sold out.

AllBuggiedOut Sun 03-Aug-08 22:40:24

I love the Boden ones in blue - they'd be fab with a brown coat!

Any colour / pattern is "try hard" IMHO - plain green Hunters will last a lifetime and go with everything

barbamama Mon 04-Aug-08 10:47:11

I've got brown hunters - cut above the flowery brigade imo

butwhybutwhy Mon 04-Aug-08 10:52:00

I like these

They come in pink too.

Flightputsonahat Mon 04-Aug-08 10:58:28

No! No patterns! Get some Hunters. They are the business. smile

I think Lapin has four pairs or something outrageous. grin

Hunters are really good but I guess it depends how much you're going to use them (in aubergine which is a lovely purple really). Mine get a lot of use in crap and mud so are well worth the money seeing as they last for years but if its for the odd rain shower then probably best to go cheap and cheerful

Flightputsonahat Mon 04-Aug-08 11:04:12

I got my Hunters on ebay for £12.99. bargain tastic grin

Can I just whisper that the local neds around here have started wearing patterned wellies with their shell suits instead of trainers.....It looks very bizarre
