Hunter Wellies: By Royal Appointment
It's not just festival goers that covet Hunter wellies; the royals love them too
In 1977, Hunter wellies were given the honour of a Royal Warrant of Appointment to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and in 1986, the same award was given for HM The Queen. Very few footwear companies get this kind of recognition, and it's testament to the exceptional quality of all of the Hunter range that the Royal family themselves get their wellies from the famous British manufacturer.
A Truly British Brand
The company behind Hunter wellies was established in Scotland more than 150 years ago, and has since grown into an internationally renowned brand. The Hunter name is synonymous with British outdoor style and quality craftsmanship. Wellington boots, named for Arthur Wellesley, the 1st Duke of Wellington were extremely popular among the aristocracy in the 19th century, and their appeal has continued ever since.
If Hunter wellies are good enough for the British royal family, then they’re definitely good enough for the rest of us.
Hunter Wellies Appeal to Everyone
While Hunter wellies might have all the hallmarks of upper-class clothing, they have always been accessible to everyone. Nowadays, they're favoured by everyone from the royal family to hordes of festival goers, and popularity has soared as these festivals become bigger and bigger. During the First World War, the factory that produces hunter wellies even made boots for the armed forces.
With the university look proving to be very popular, and very much in fashion, it’s no surprise that Hunter wellies can be seen even on the high street. They can be worn with a great variety of outdoor clothing, and with winter approaching, there’s no better choice of footwear. If the snow is anything like it’s been in previous years, Hunter wellies will certainly come in handy.
