Some times it feels like the rain will never stop and one days like these, there is no point in ruining a decent pair of shoes. But what to wear instead? Wellies? There is certainly plenty of choice out there although many designs are in danger of being too twee or straying into novelty territory.
Not these Red Lace Up Wellies though. These are infinitely tougher looking than your average Wellington boot, reminiscent in fact of the cherry Doc Martens beloved of many a punk or skinhead. Not cheap at £70 and only available in sizes 36 to 41, they are however made from 100% waterproof rubber and have a fleece lining.
They can be bought online from Cocoa Bean.
