Here come the Hunters! Traditional, trendy, and durable, need I say more?
I’m loving these limited edition Festival 2009 Tall boots with upper metal details that add style to the already trendy packaging of these boots. They also come in a shorter (less fashionable and functional in my opinion) version. Both tall and short versions come in black and aqua and are a must for every festival-goer (below, top line, £145).
Now, the Regent Neoprene Hunter boots are a small step above the most widely available and worn Original boots you’ll find in most stores because of their fashionable city savvy style. The neoprene lining provides extra comfort and warmth, and the sleaker style and colour selection (aubergine, black, graphite, green, navy, and white) will be sure to turn heads (below, second line, £90).
The equestrian inspired Chelsea boots are comprised of a micro-fiber upper leg for added elegance and natural rubber bottom. They come in gorgeous beige and light grey featured below as well as black, chocolate, and navy. I actually own a pair of these boots from two seasons ago and although I find the foot bed a tad large, you can fit many pairs of socks inside; I even added a fuzzy warm lambs wool insole. I really like the new colours, especially the light grey (below, third line, £110).
The most luxurious of all Hunters, the Balmoral Sovereign boots are for those who demand ultimate function and performance. They are suitable for all weather, all terrain, and all temperatures. With their vulcanized natural rubber construction, Vibram orthopedic inner sole (with an energy rebound heel, shock absorbing pads, and a set of removable insole for adapting between seasons) for the utmost comfort, waterproof gusset with full length zipper closer and stud fastener, and leather lining with neoprene upper foot lining for warmth. The Balmoral Sovereign boots come in black and brown and are truly the finest Wellies of all and cost accordingly (bottom left, £295).
And last but not least the Jimmy Choo x Hunter boots, which are no longer available for purchase, are truly the most fashionable of all the wellies around uniting the two iconic British brands. Natural rubber construction with embossed Jimmy Choo signature crocodile print, leopard print lining, branded top bind, gold buckle hardware, and an extra long eyelet strap adding attention to detail make these boots oh so fabulous! They went on sale early this past May, and have since been completely sold out, except on ebay of course.
