Wellington boots, also known as wellies, are waterproof rain boots made from rubber or PVC. They are just below knee height and come in a variety of designs for both men and women.

Determining your size is perhaps the most important part of buying wellies. They tend to run small, so a safe bet would be to try a size above your normal shoe size. Wellies are just about knee height, so larger sizes are also easier to get on and off.


The yellow-soled, black wellies worn by fishermen and construction workers are not the only styles available. The brand offers a variety of colours and designs produced for women, children and men. Shop around for the design you like the most and is appropriate for their intended use.

Cost and Quality

More expensive shoe stores will have the same boots as a discount store, but for a much higher price. Wellies from these expensive stores are not necessarily better quality than cheaper pairs. Looking at reviews online or from friends is the best way to determine how much you are willing to spend versus how reliable you want your wellies to be.
