Rainy days usually instill a certain kind of laziness in us. That morning drizzle and the sleek sidewalks don’t exactly leave us feeling fashionably inspired, especially when it comes to our choice of shoe. Heels are risky, sneakers are generally a no-go, and waterproof construction is a must.

The Hunter Original boot was first introduced in 1956 in the UK and has since become an icon in waterproof footwear. Available for women, men, and kids, Hunter boots exude a classic sense of style that is sure to hold an important place in your wardrobe for years to come.
Don’t believe us?

Hunter’s ties to the UK go way back. Established as a rubber company in Scotland in 1856, Hunter produced industrial items like tires and conveyor belts. It was at the start of World War I in 1914 that production on Wellington boots rose dramatically. To protect soldiers in the trenches, Hunter manufactured more than 1 million sturdy, protective rubber boots.
Staying true to their heritage today, Hunter continues to use natural rubber in every product, which is ideal for its waterproof qualities, comfort and aesthetic.
If you’re looking for style inspo, try pairing your Hunter boots with ripped denim, an oversized furry coat, and a leather backpack like fashion blogger Shea of Peace Love Shea (above). So winter chic!
Or, if you’re more likely to be driven by comfort when you get dressed on a cold morning, take notes on how Arielle of Something Navy styled her Hunter boots — with a pair of leggings, a knit sweater, and cute, messy high bun. Simple, yet stylish.
