10 best festival wellies

Love the music but hate the mud?  Here are some fine wellies to keep  your dancing feet dry

Soggy tents and accidental mud-baths are as much a part of the British festival experience as the music. But while we can cope with dirty hair, damp clothes and even the long-drop, soggy feet should not be part of the equation.

Festival fashion begins with the wellies, but finding that perfect pair with enough character to help you stand out from the crowd, but enough class that you can wear them year after year can be a tricky one. From the classic Hunters to the unusual Hemingway, we’ve searched out the best to keep your feet dry and get you ready for all that dancing in style. You’ll be channelling Kate Moss in no time.

Verdict:

Hunter’s black and pink wellies are our style of choice for the perfect balance of classic and fun that you can wear year after year, but if you’re after something a little more creative, Joules’ nautical pair are a good choice too.
