Looking for wellies for this summer's festivals. I am looking for some pretty wellies which are going to go with anything really. I'm a UK size 6. NO HUNTER WELLIES. Anyone got any suggestions or sites where I could find nice wellies? After hours of searching I still haven't found anything nice!

Eugh, I know. Hunter have gone down hill...rapidly.

Ariats are brilliant! Bit pricey but well worth it.

You're better off at some sort of equestrian retailer:

e.g.

by the end of the festival, chances are you wont be worried about some pretty ones. my advice is to get some bog standard ones that'll do the job required.

But true....? Seriously, the tiniest tiniest bit of rain and several thousand people walking over the same patch of land will create a mud bath. It doesn't even need to be proper rain. A bit of drizzle and it'll happen. So when you want one pair of shoes to take to a festival (because you don't wanna take lots of stuff) and you want something that won't cost too much (I'd never take my walking boots because they'd cost too much to replace) then wellies are your obvious choice. Which is why, even in 25-30 degree heat a good third of the girls at any festival will be wearing wellies.

Just wondering, what's wrong with Hunter?
Joules do patterned wellies I think.

Seriously over priced.
I got mine for 40 pounds, and if you buy a decent pair they will last for years. There's no point in buying some for ten pounds that will get a hole in as soon as you get to the festival.

Anyway I love these:

Whats wrong with plain ol' green ones? Must have had mine at least 5 years, had much abuse from festivals, camping and whatnot, can't have cost much more than a tenner, no holes in sight! Idk, I don't get the patterned welly hype, it seems like a lot of money for something that gets relatively little wear. But hey, if you've got a bit of extra cash to splash, why not I suppose. Joules do some really nice patterned ones
