I suggest most adults have ever wanted to return to their childhood and jump over puddles. Sometimes we just cannot help ourselves and we do it, even if we do not have proper shoes. Then we damn unkind weather and have to go through the process of drying and saving our wet shoes. If only we had those rubber shoes that we used to have in childhood… Actually it does not matter how old we are because we are never too old to wear rubber shoes, more commonly Wellington boots or Wellies. Moreover, ladies rubber shoes are so stylish today that you just can not ignore them anymore.

By Wellies we mean the type of shoes that is made of rubber or pvc. They usually come to just bellow the knee – regular full length Wellies, even though there are other two lengths of ladies rubber shoes – ankle and mid-length Wellies.

This type of shoes has multifunction usage, is perfect for walking a dog, gardening, going to the woods or summer festivals. The practicality and comfort of Wellies are simply unexceptionable and these two very important demands on shoes are behind the growing popularity of ladies Wellies. In the last few years, Wellies have become the indispensable piece of woman’s wardrobe, the real must-have.

Looking back at the origin of Wellington boots, we can find it at cavalry offices’ boots in the 19th century. This type of boots was popularized by the Duke of Wellington – from whom Wellies got the name – and spread among society. Rubber Wellies, as we know them today, were manufactured in the1850s.

Ladies Wellies have become very popular especially in the United Kingdom, because of the strong hunting tradition and also because of unpredictable and rainy weather. Currently, their popularity has crossed the borders of UK and spread to other states.

There is the famous UK brand of Wellies, the Hunter Wellingtons, which was established by American H. L. Norris, who moved to Scotland in the 1800s. They were worn by soldiers in World War II and before 2005 mostly by fishermen. Then they were seen on British fashion icon Kate Moss at the Glastonbury festival and the Hunter Wellies mania has started.

Few years later, there were other British celebs, who were inspired by Kate Moss and were seen at the Glastonbury festival, wearing almost the same look as the model – short shorts and Hunter Wellies. Nevertheless, they also had inspiring and original outfits.

Do not be awkward to imitate Kate Moss and make your own version of her look. Those of you who like to show off your legs, can try Wellies with shorts. When the weather is unkind, you can just take on trousers and tuck them in your Wellies. It is essential to think about the occasion you are going to wear the Hunter’s for, because you will get a hint of military look.

In case you would like to get more feminine (girly) look, there are plenty of funky Wellies to choose from. There are even Wellies with heels in the market – ‘WedgeWelly’ Wellingtons – that were invented by British creative designer Laura Booth. They might be the option for those who can not get along without heels.

With regard to the growing trend, you might also buy a pair and discover the comfort, which Wellies provide your feet, especially when the autumn has come.
