Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

In 1856, Henry Lee Norris, an American entrepreneur, landed on Scottish soil in search of a home for his boot making company. Having acquired a block of buildings in Edinburgh, known as the Castle Silk Mills, the North British Rubber Company (which much later became known as Hunter Boot Ltd) was registered as a limited liability company in September 1856. In the beginning there were only four people working for the company, by 1875 the team had grown to 600 members of staff. Production of wellington boots was dramatically boosted with the advent of World War I, when the company was asked by the British government to construct a sturdy boot suitable for the conditions in flooded trenches. The mills ran day and night to produce immense quantities of these trench boots. More than a million pairs were made to cope with the Army's demands. The fashionable boot was now a functional necessity. Hunter's most famous welly, the original Green wellington, was made over 50 years ago in the winter of 1955. It was the first orthopaedic boot that they made and was launched alongside the Royal Hunter--another boot that remains in Hunter's range today. Today, Hunter remains the preferred welly brand for those who like to work hard and play hard--there's a great range of boots to suit welly wearers all over the world--from the Royal Family to festival-goers, working farmers and landed gentry alike.

I was bought these for Christmas 2011. The first pair I received had an insole missing so Amazon sent a new pair which arrived the next day.

I don't go 'working'- I just wanted a decent, comfortable pair of wellies for walking the dog, twice a day.

The boots as so comfortable and extremely warm. Can't really say much more than that. BUT, on the 9th day of wearing them, I noticed that my heel felt very sore. When I got home and took them off, I noticed that not only did I have a hole in the ankle in both socks, the neoprene lining had worn through to the rubber - in both boots! I spoke to Amazon who sent replacement (3rd!) pair.

The 3rd pair arrived on Monday 9th January. So, Tuesday morning, I start wearing the new boots. Today, 16th January - 6 days (12 walks) later, my socks have holes in the heels and the neoprene lining in both boots have worn through to the rubber!

So, I have given up on these boots and sent them back for a refund. If they only cost £20, I could sort of understand the failings and put up with them but when they are supposed to be of a certain quality, and they cost what they cost, I expect a lot more!

Shame really as when I had to wear my old 'cheapo' boots, it was like walking barefoot on concrete!

It is with a heavy heart that I must discourage serious boot users from going for Hunter boots. I have posted the same review under the Balmoral Neoprene for Women (sounds like a fetishist perfume)but I wanted to sound the same views here as they apply to the Men's model as well and they stopped me from getting a pair for myself.

Why the heavy heart? Because I have grown up in them since the early 1980s and I have always been well served by them. But since the change of ownership on 2006 and the relocation of many if not most of their manufacturing processes to China, the product appears to be utterly different, save for the all important "Hunter" label on the front.

My wife needed some decent boots for long, wet, muddy walks. Sick of replacing cheap uncomfortable boots every year, I decided to treat her to a pair of Lady Balmoral Neoprenes with accompanying Hunter fleece boot socks. She is very slim but with fairly solid ankles, but I was shocked when she said that she just couldn't wear them, just after a minute of walking about in the living room. The rubber was stiff, plasticky and quite rigid and the fold at the front of the boot when stepping forward pressed in. She also had something pressing hard up against the back of both ankles. The size was otherwise correct, if anything a little on the roomy side. Back they went.

I was pretty crestfallen - it was a bit like a foreigner spitting out a kindly proffered bit of Dairy Milk in disgust. This was a brand that I had used to destruction in the field in my youth and as such I hadn't even checked any reviews on it. I assumed that in light of my very positive experiences in the past - and the price - that quality and satisfaction were both a given.

Colour Name: Dark OliveSize Name: 3 UK Verified Purchase
I have to wear wellies quite a bit with my work with the horses, These wellies should last a long time, 12 months plus, I have had them 6 months & I know have holes appeared on the seems of the neoprene on the sides of the wellies, the soles are still showing good tread but the sides are holey crap

I purchased these as I thought they might be a good strong wellie & well made, as it turns out they are as crap as the original style hunter wellies, I will never be buying a hunter product again, they are most likely made in a sweat shop by kids anyway,

Poor Poor Naff Quality product, DONT BUY!, Amazon showed no interest in helping resolve the issue, so im off to Hunter direct to tell them how crap their products really are.

These boots lasted me 2 weeks before my heels had worn through the neoprene liners of both boots. I returned them for refund. I walk a lot of miles with the dog and I thought I was buying a hard-wearing quality product. Unfortunately, Hunter's choice of material and construction is not up to the job.

I'm now wearing Aigle Parcours ISO. The heel cavity is reinforced with a rubber abrasion strip so the neoprene is protected; a much better design and choice of material (I notice that my Mother-in-Law's Toggi wellys are similarly reinforced). I think it's sad that Hunter couldn't get it right, the Balmoral is very comfortable and it's a great looking welly.

I've previously owned Toggi and La Chameau neoprene boots which have been warm and comfortable, they've both lasted a couple of years being worn most days for dog walking before splitting where the upper creases when you bend your foot.
I was impressed by the look and comfort of the hunters but very disappointed that the sole came away from the upper and a leak developed after less than 6 months.
Before this happened I bought my wife a pair and unfortunately hers have now started to leak around the heel after less than two months of gentle wear.
There are obviously issues with these boots and I would not recommend them. Amazon would not provide a replacement at the same price, the only others on the website being £20.00 more.
I've now bought a pair of much cheaper Regatta neoprene boots which although not as substantial are comfortable and not leaking. If I get 12 months use out of them I'm quids in as they're a third the cost of the others.
