Purple Hunters. Whatever next? That could only have come from a woman! Smile
I'm on my third pair of (GREEN) Hunters which I've worn regularly (thanks to dogs) for about 20 years. They've just sprung a leak so I'm in the market for some new ones. How much are they these days?

Shop around and you should be able to get a pair for about 40. Most places charge about 50. They're standard green ones, but I needed to try before buying as I'm quite short.

Do a search on Google - you should get a sensible price. Hunters are made again in Scotland after an unsuccessful attempt to transfer production to China.

I could have writen the op today !!
I have a dog that I walk every day in all weathers and right now it is definitely wellie weather and what did I discover today ? That yet again ANOTHER pair of my wellies have split and let all the water in, this time they were Ikea ones, the ones previous were Peter Storm from Millets that spilt and I couldn't get a refund only vouchers and as the only branch of Millets I know of near my parenst closed down I am left 20 and a pair of boots out of pocket. I've lost count of ones previous to them.

I said today I would love a pair of bright red Hunters but there is no way I can afford them.

All I want is a pair of wellies that will NOT split where the upper meets the sole and will last me years to come, that aren't men's and don't cost a fortune.

I have a 'thing' for red footwear, but if I have to have grungy green I suppose I'll have to.
Why do practical things always have to be such boring coloursSad

Lol, my theory is, if there are so many wonderful colours in the world, why do so many things have to be made in black,brown or khaki???

Just thought, the Crocs georgie wellies look quite good, but I wish they came up higher.

Hi, I have just ordered some black Hunters (I didn't want green either!) from Uttings for 45 ish delivered which was about the cheapest I could find in black (there is cheaper on ebay etc but most are navy or green that I didn't want). They look good and long and should last for years although it will be interesting to see how they fare against the cheaper boots others have mentioned.

Have a look on their website as there is a wild and wonderful range that would meet anyones needs including croc style Hunters.

Cheers

I borrowed a pair of Hunters and agree that they are very comfortable - quite unlike other wellies.

I fancy a pair of Muckboots - northernlight mentioned them - as they appear to be better insulated. They are available from equestrian outlets.

Hunters are great......until you start walking on rough stony ground with them and you'll feel every pebble

Yes, I guess the soles are not the best in that respect. But the flexi ankle is brill.

Hunters are still in production although the factory shop has closed.

Hunter website

Factory is still producing an assortment of wellies and obviously as I stated in my other post they're introducing new lines for spring.

Keith's comment about feeling pebbles is true for some of the models but I use Sorbothane double strike insoles in mine and that cushions beautifully.
