Forget soaked; this year, we’re choosing to see storm season as stylish thanks to a range of beautiful rain boots by Hunter. In the game since 1856, the British heritage brand knows a thing or two about wet-weather wear; in fact, the company is renowned for its iconic Original boot and holds two Royal Warrants of Appointment to HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh! A rich history of innovation—not to mention, a commitment to ethical sourcing and sustainability—continues to forge footwear that shields us from the elements and bleakest of landscapes. Additionally, Hunter’s new Footwear Hero campaign highlights all of the iconic styles that are “More Than Just A Boot”—see below for some of our top picks! —Vita Daily
Hunter Original Tall Boots. Perfect for wet weather conditions, this women’s Rain Boot ($180) has been at the heart of the Hunter Original brand since its intro in 1956. Formed of natural rubber, each pair is made from 28 hand-cut parts and assembled over three days before being vulcanized for superior protection. Featuring the Hunter Original tread pattern and a comfortable polyester lining, this classic waterproof boot, which comes in more colours than you’ll see in a typical after-storm rainbow, is a rainy day necessity. Styling tip: wear with Hunter Boot Socks, which feature a fold-over top to cover the rubber and nylon boot edge, preventing any rubbing—and looking super cute!
Hunter Chelsea Boot. The new-and-improved Hunter Original Chelsea Boot ($160) has an even more optimum fit to maximize all-day comfort (read: a wider ankle circumference and an increased curve in the heel and around the Achilles tendon deliver an more comfortable fit than ever). Ready for rain, each boot is handcrafted from natural rubber and vulcanized for superior protection. Retaining the iconic features of a traditional Chelsea, it features elasticated gussets and has a nylon pull-tab to make stepping into the boot easy. In seven colours, these waterproof Chelseas are a wet-weather wardrobe essential. Sizing tip: if you are in-between sizes or want to wear a thick sock, it is recommended to size up in these beauties.
Hunter Refined Stitch. With the focal point being the chunky sole, this Women’s Refined Chelsea boot ($195) is fully waterproof and is adorned with a stylish stitch detail around the rubber and EVA outsole. Handcrafted from natural rubber with a nylon pull-tab and elastic gusset for ease of foot entry, they are finished with a polyester lining for comfort. Retaining the iconic features of a traditional Chelsea, this black boot features a slightly more platformed outsole and chunkier heel for ultimate grip and support, ideal for city commuting. Care tip: use Hunter Boot Shine and Rubber Boot Buffer to keep your boots in optimum condition (no matter how many puddles you step in).
