Hunter brand "Wellie" boots are made from a combination of rubber and latex, which causes the material to become clouded or chalky under certain conditions. Since the cloudy film is a matter of normal wear and tear, the 12-month warranty will not cover the issue. Fortunately, there are a few measures you can take to keep your Hunter boots from getting cloudy in the first place.

Wipe your boots down using a rag and warm, soapy water immediately following use. You should remove any dirt, oil or other build-up. In order to preserve the rubber, it's important to use a solvent-free soap.
Dry your Hunter boots off before storing them. The presence of moisture, such as water or humidity, causes the release of a waxy protective film, which is what causes the boots to look cloudy.
Store your boots in a dark, cool place when not in use. Avoid direct sunlight as well as artificial sources of heat. If possible, leave them in their original cardboard packaging.
