This is not a post I had expected write. It’s February after all; rain and wind are not unexpected but the storms and floods we’ve seen have been unprecedented.

With vast areas of Britain suffering from serious flooding, a good pair of Wellington boots will provide vital protection for any Gent needing to get his feet dirty.

Sales of Wellies have increased drastically in the the past two weeks – so we’ve chosen five of our favourites to aid your decision if you haven’t already picked up a pair.

Original Tall by Hunter

An obvious choice. Hunter’s Original boots are the perfect all rounders. Sturdy enough to battle floods and comfortable enough for festival wear. Available in a range of colours.
