I’ve been a little obsessed with Wedge Wellies since I first spotted them on Dragon’s Den. The idea of a stylish Wellington boot that could also offer the height, and the glamour of a wedge heel was something that really appealed to the side of me that hates flat shoes. In the years since that Dragon’s Den episode, the not so humble boots have moved on from strength to strength. And, with the UK facing some extreme weather conditions this week involving the possibility of flooding, it seems appropriate to pay tribute to the force of shoe nature that is the Wedge Welly.
Wedge Wellies offer so much in the way of pattern and style, giving you real options when it comes to matching your wellies to the rest of your wardrobe. Because, let’s face it, if we end up with anything like the snow of last winter, we will be wearing those boots quite a bit as we make our way to work, do the school run and generally try to make our way around in some decidedly dodgy conditions. The Wedge Welly, with its use of shiny patent and croc patterns, and gorgeous prints that range from sexy animal designs to cute Scottie Dog prints, have cornered the market in making wellies fun and fashionable.
If the fabulous designs haven’t tempted you to invest in a pair of Wedge Wellies, then the lure of great quality should do the trick. Made from High Content Rubber that make them hard wearing and durable, these boots are 100% waterproof, with many also coming with adjustable side strap. There are also designs available in wide fit, if, like me, you have more muscular or fleshy calves. All, in all, there are designs that suit absolutely everyone – even those who don’t actually like wedge heels!
