The legendary Hunter Wellington boots, now firmly established as style classics, were originally designed over 150 years ago for walking in Scotland, no matter how rough the ground or how harsh the elements. Their reputation for both durability and performance, together with their undoubted comfort and style, has made Hunter wellies extremely popular with all walks of life. Hunter has become a brand which is synonymous with the British countryside and worn by the Royal Family, working farmers, the landed gentry and festival goers alike.
Constant research into materials, design and manufacturing over the last 150 years has led to revolutionary technology and Hunter’s own secret production process being introduced, where modern techniques are combined with hand craft skills. Top quality materials are used with up to 28 separate parts being combined to make just one pair of Hunters. The product development of Hunter wellingtons is still based in Scotland, where the wellies are subjected to the worst of wet British weather for which they are intended. As a result, Hunter boots fulfil their purpose of keeping feet warm, dry, protected and comfortable. This helps to reinforce Hunter’s claim of no one knowing more about the requirements of welly wearers than they do.
Hunter has four main activity categories for their boots: work, fun, sport and kids. Work styles give protection, support and performance if you are on the farm, in the garden, at the stables or in the field. The Hunters in this category include: Hunter Original Collection, Hunter Technical, Hunter Bench-Made, Argyll & Bullseye Farming Boots, RHS gardening collection, and Lowther Collection.
