Whether you need wellies for trekking the fields with your dog or just plan to splash in a few puddles, here are the best women's wellies for any budget.

Even in the height of the UK summer, there’s always a chance of rain, so a pair of wellies are essential for keeping your feet warm and dry.

Thankfully, there are lots of styles and prices to choose from, whether you’re after some fashionable patterned wellies for trekking through muddy fields at a music festival (when those are allowed again), a pair of classic boots that offer both style and protection on dog walks, or sturdy wellies for maximum protection when gardening or on outdoor adventures.

Generally, wellies are made from natural rubber – thought to be the most comfortable and eco-friendly material – or Gore-Tex, which tends to be more expensive but offers good protection. There’s also PVC, a more affordable welly but less supportive and flexible than other materials.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s favourites are La Chameau, which cost around £150. However, if you only plan to wear your wellies for the occasional walk, you may want something a bit cheaper.

Thankfully, there are plenty of lower-price options that will protect your feet from the elements. For tougher terrain or more regular use, it’s worth investing in a good pair of boots that are waterproof, slip-resistant and durable.

To help you find the right pair, here are the 10 best wellies for women to suit all needs and budgets.

The main selling point of these futuristic-looking welly boots is the self-cleaning sole, designed to make sure that mud doesn't stick like it does on your bog-standard boots.

Add to this the option to customise the top half of the boot with either neoprene or rubber and you have a pair of boots that are both practical and comfy – and less space-age than they might first appear.
