Hunter wellies have been around for many, many years and were originally manufactured in Scotland over one hundred years ago.

Since that time they have had a turbulent trading history with the company almost going into administration some years back.

The company were renowned the world over for producing rubber compound wellington boots. Much like the famous quote by Henry T Ford, you could have any colour of Hunter boot you wanted.... as long as it was black.Field Sports Hunter Boots They then introduced a second colour which was green and this was popular amongst the rural elite who would wear Hunter wellies whilst clay pigeon shooting or walking their dogs through the countryside.

Thanks to an opportune photo being taken of a very famous supermodel wearing a pair of Hunters the company's fortune took a dramatic turn for the better as a result of all the positive publicity.

For the first time, wellington boots weren't just a practical item of footwear associated with dreary, rainy days, they were now being worn by some of the coolest people in the country.

Taking advantage of their new found popularity the company started introducing more styles and colours of wellies so that today there are literally dozens of designs to choose from.

Hunter have even collaborated with the celebrated shoe designer, Jimmy Choo,Argyll Farmers Hunter Boots to design a pair of wellies that would appeal to the more fashion conscious customer.

A children's range was also introduced and the new kids Hunter wellies collection is now one of the most popular lines in the whole collection.

In an effort to give the consumer what they wanted the company introduced a range of Hunter wellies socks to be worn inside the boot. Not only did this make the foot warmer and allowed for a better fit inside the boot but it also allowed the business to create a wide selection of different coloured socks. This in turn gave the customer an opportunity to customise their wellie boot to their own tastes as the socks were turned up and over the top of the wellie adding a splash of individual colour to the boot.

A whole range of accessories has also sprung up which now includes wellington boot cleaning solutions,RHS Gardening Hunter Boots shearling insoles and even a carry all bag so you can transport your pair of wellies with ease.

It's probably safe to assume that the founder of the business all those years ago would never have envisaged the brand becoming so universally popular!
