Style icons like Kate Moss and Alexa Chung may have paved the way for Hunter wellies to become a practical style staple in our winter wardrobes, but with such a hefty price tag, are they really worth it?
As the cold winter rages on and the rainy weather a given, wellies are a staple.
Long gone are the days that wellies were simply reserved for muddy festivals or country walks; they’ve had a fashion makeover as the practical footwear of choice thanks to ultimate fashion tastemakers.
Back in 2020, we saw wellies all over the autumn winter 2020 catwalks, with designers like Prada, Bottega Veneta and Versace getting in on the action and they haven’t gone anywhere ever since.
While we love Hunter Wellies, at £125 a pop they’re not cheap for boots that you might not be wearing every day.
I decided to do a roundup of the best Hunter boots alternatives that I could find to suit all budgets.
Here’s a little trick I learned while researching. Get a pair of Hunter dupes and pair with the real Hunter socks that go over the boot. Hey, presto – you’ve got yourself a pair of Hunters for a fraction of the price.
