The 10 Best wellies

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Weather Glastonbury mud and the unpredictable British summer in style with our pick of essential festival footwear

{1} Hunter Festival

While most people know this quintessentially British brand for its more understated boots, Hunter also does a range for those that want to get noticed, including this new festival pair which feature neon straps, complete with metal studs.


{2} JuJu Glow

No need to lose your friends at Glasto this year, thanks to these vibrant glow-in-the-dark wellies that can be spotted even at the other side of a muddy field. Featuring a patent finish and contrast black sole, and made by the pioneers of the original British jelly shoe, they are good value too.


{3} Barbour Town & Country

These classic unisex boots have become a trusted friend to generations of country mudlarks and shooters, not to mention being the aristocratic choice of wellington boot. Now available in a rainbow of colours from classic green to racy red, they still look good.


{4} Joules Navflor

From farmyards to festivals, streams to sea fronts, these wipe-clean floral boots will add some tropical chic to your surroundings. With an improved shape, fit and tread pattern for enhanced grip, they will also keep your feet lovely and warm, even in really cold weather.


{5} Le Chameau Chasseur

Le Chameau handcrafts its boots in France using natural rubber and the long-lasting leather lining moulds to the shape of your foot. So while they cost a small fortune, you get what you pay for. The only downside is that no other welly will ever do again.


{6} Ciccone Leo

For those who wouldn’t be seen dead  in a pair of knee-high rubber boots,  these smart men’s wellibobs with Ciccone’s signature metal “C” are just the thing. In fact, you could be forgiven for failing to notice that they’re wellies at all.


{7} Wedge Welly Man Eater Platinum

Struggling to see the main stage? There’s a 1.5in wedge to stop the tall guy in front of you spoiling your view – and with the stylish crocodile finish and knee-high zip of these boots, you might just wind up pulling him too.


{8} Next Coral Lace Print

Lace and wellies aren’t generally words you’ll find in the same sentence, but these boots have a coral-coloured lace print that makes them more feminine than you’d have thought possible. They’re both sturdy and comfy too. 


{9} Oliveira Houndstooth

These super-comfy, stylish wellies feature a supple, material upper that retains its shape and makes them look much more expensive than they are. They also boast a discreet zip-up that makes them a breeze to put on and stops unsightly “wrinkly knees” when tucking in your jeans.


{10} The EWE Boot

The thick-pile Merino sheepskin lining in these boots, which come in a variety of fabulous colours, offers climate control for your feet. Insulating against the cold and allowing your feet to breathe when it’s warm, you’ll feel like you’re wearing slippers even without socks.
