If there’s one thing all men need in Britain, it’s a good pair of wellington boots. Through dog walks, farm work, and festivals, the welly boot keeps our feet dry and (hopefully) warm. In a country where rain is often the main weather forecast, it’s important that we always have a good and reliable pair of wellies to hand.
Grab yourself a large cuppa or something stronger, and we will help you discover the best wellies for men on the market right now.
What to Look For
When looking for a reliable pair of boots, you will want something that is sturdy, hardwearing, and unlikely to tear quickly. A Wellington boot that fits well and warms icy toes is often a bonus. Preferably, you’ll be able to wear them all year round and won’t need a pair of winter and summer wellies. Of course, there are different types of wellies for women and men and this article will focus on the 10 best men’s wellies, and our thoughts on them.
From the expensive and stylish, to the cheap and practical, you’ll find a welly here for every occasion.
Dubarry – Style and Comfort in Leather
Peter Storm – Affordable and Waterproof
Aigle – Short and Warm for Work
It's a Wrap
In general, it would seem that the more expensive brands such as Dubarry and Le Chameau Chasseur are the best buys for men’s wellies. They tend to last longer and are more durable. Places like Le Chameau and Joules who have warranties on their boots give a real confidence about how they feel about the quality of the brand. While they are quite high up on the chain when it comes to expense it is well worth saving up for these if you need something that will last you a long time.
However, if you’re looking for festival wellies for men or something for light use, then it’s worth taking a look at Hunters, or maybe even the cheaper brands like Dunlop if you don’t want to spend a great deal. For those of you looking for a welly that is going to serve you well at work, be sure to look into Muck Boots and Aigle. They are reasonably priced and made for the work you are doing, which means they are going to last and do what you need them to.
