Complete the Look: Find the perfect spot to store your wellies.

We’ve comprised a simple guide on which wellies are the best quality, and what to look out for when finding the right size and fit.

Which wellies are best for walking?

If you like to take regular country walks, or are often out walking your dog, you will want to invest in a pair of premium and hard wearing boots that will keep your feet protected and dry for years to come.

Most wellies are designed for walking and the main thing to consider when purchasing is comfort. Look for wellies that fit correctly, have breathable lining and feature a comfortable and sturdy sole.

Do wellies stretch?

Welly boots are designed to be roomy enough to fit with thick socks, but tight enough to prevent them from slipping off.

Made from rubber, wellies can be stretched to make them slightly larger. However, this is not recommended as it may damage the rubber and misshape the boot.

Most wellies feature an adjustable gusset which will allow you to loosen or tighten the boot to ensure it fits your calf comfortably.

Suitable for most terrains

Do you buy wellies in a bigger size?

Although sizing can vary from brand to brand, the sizing of wellies is, more often than not, the same sizing as regular footwear.

Though, if you are planning on wearing welly socks or extra pairs of socks to keep your feet warm, you may want to up-size to allow extra room.

When looking for wellies for walking, there are a few things you want to consider; the durability, the comfort and if they are weatherproof.
