Hunter Children's First Classic Wellington Boots

Product information

Hunter wellies are durable and comfortable, which makes them perfect for jumping in puddles, crunching through snow, and trekking through mud.

These children's wellies are crafted from durable EVA material which makes them waterproof and comfy. They're finished with a gripped, non-slip sole.

We recommend this purchase with the Hunter Rubber Care Kit and Hunter Welly Socks.

Look after your wellies

To ensure a long and healthy lifespan for your boots, wipe clean and leave to dry naturally, away from direct sunlight or artificial heat sources. Only use cold, soapy water to clean your boots. Do not use solvents. Do not store boots whilst damp, folded or creased. Keep in a cool, dry location.

Occasionally, you may notice a white powdery ‘bloom’ on your Hunter wellies. This is because rubber is a natural product and in certain conditions, insoluble particles may rise to the surface. This is a common process, characteristic of high quality, natural rubber and nothing to worry about as it will not affect the performance or durability of your boots.
Increased sole wear can increase the risk of slipping, as can exposure to solvents, oils and animal fats, which can swell the rubber.
Please note, Hunter wellies contain natural rubber latex, which some people may be allergic to.

Brand Story

Founded in 1856, Hunter is a British heritage brand renowned for its iconic Original boot and holds two Royal Warrants of Appointment to HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. The brand has a rich history of innovation and continues to forge designs that shield pioneers from the elements and bleakest of landscapes.

In 1856 an American entreprenuer, Henry Lee Norris, acquired a block of buildings in Edinburgh to use as a boot making factory. From four starting staff, the company had grown to 600 people by 1875.

With the advent of World War I, the demand for wellington boots grew dramatically. The company was asked by the War Office to design a sturdy boot suitable for trench warfare. By the end of the war, they had produced nearly 1.2 million pairs of trench boots.

Hunter was called upon again in World War II, supplying huge numbers of wellington and thigh boots. After the war, they moved to a larger factory in Heathhall Dumfries to meet the rising demand.

Hunter’s iconic design, the original Green Wellington, was first made in the winter of 1955. It was the company’s first orthopedic boot, and continues to be a popular design to this day. Hunter’s wide range are favourites for festival-goers, farmers, gardeners, and people who just want to look stylish as well as keeping dry.
