Give Winter the Boot
Winter comes with a multitude of weather challenges; Fog, rain, snow, ice – the list goes on of all the dangerous and hazardous weather conditions that could have you slip-sliding all over the place. That’s why we have come up with the boots you need this winter to save you from falling on your behind and give winter the boot!
Always a firm favorite, wellingtons are an absolute essential to have in the house for everyone. Whether it’s jumping in puddles or walking through the muddy forest, wellingtons will take you from A to B and they won’t get ruined in the process.
Our favorites are Hunter boots. Founded in 1856, and headquartered in Edinburgh, these boots are known for their style and durability. If you need any assurance that these wellingtons are worth it you need only look at their history. During World War I and II production of wellington boots were dramatically boosted when the Hunter Boots company was asked by the War Office to construct a sturdy boot suitable for the conditions of flooded trenches. The company was once again called upon during World War II to supply vast quantities of wellington and thigh boots. By the end of the war wellingtons had become popular among men, women and children for wear in wet weather. The style of the wellington had also evolved over time, allowing them to be roomier, with a thick sole and rounded toe. Also, with the period of rationing that continued after the war, laborers began to use ‘Wellies” for daily work.

The Work Boot
For when Wellingtons just aren’t occasion appropriate, we give you the work boot. Similar to most other winter boots, winter work boots are constructed of thick, durable leather. All winter work boots should have built in insulation for added warmth and some may even have extra insulation in the foot to protect feet from the cold coming up from the ground – we don’t want our toes to get cold do we? Some select models may also feature a steel toe cap in the boot, but during the winter you should only choose this choice unless they absolutely have to, as the steel can attract the cold.
Our favourites are Timberlands. The popular and iconic company will soon celebrate 100 years of Timberland fashion as they were founded in 1918, in Boston, Massachusetts. Over the years, more than 1 million pairs of Timberlands have been sold, in a variety of colours and styles, but all with Timberland signature waterproof material. For durable and warm boots to get you through the working day, and around afterwards, you need look no further than Timberland.
