Hunter Wellingtons, more commonly referred to as Wellies, were originally developed in Scotland as work or rain boots. Now, they are an international fashion statement and are sold in Europe, North and South America and Asia. They are well-known for their comfort and durability and are offered in numerous styles and colors beyond the Original Green.
The Company Website
Unfortunately, Hunter does not have stores in the United States (all of the Hunter stores are in Great Britain and Ireland); however, there is a United States distributor: Hunter Boot USA, LLC. You can use the Hunter website to research styles and colors by either browsing the site or using the boot selector tool, but the parent company does not ship to the United States (they do ship to other European countries, however).
Numerous websites offer the Hunter Wellie boots, including Zappos.com, Amazon.com and Shoes.com. Be careful, however, of knock-offs sold by less-known websites; look for the Hunter logo, which is composed of black block letters within a red rectangle. The name of the boot style is given within the logo (for example, Huntress boots are labeled Huntress). You can also check websites that are more specialized, such as those for sporting goods and horseback-riding apparel.
If you want to try on Hunter Wellies before purchasing them, use TheFind.com to locate a store near you that offers them. You may have to use several phrasings in the search engine to find what you want (entering “hunter boots womens original hunter” seemed to result in the widest range of styles). Again, you can search at sporting goods stores or other specialty stores. Department stores such as Nordstrom also may offer Hunter Wellies.
