Founded in 1856, Hunter is a progressive British heritage brand renowned for its iconic Original boot and holds two Royal Warrants of Appointment to HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. The brand has a rich history of innovation and continues to design to protect from the elements and perform on varied landscapes.

The globally recognised Wellington boot was first introduced in 1956, with each pair still handcrafted on the same last from 28 individual parts. For more than 160 years, Hunter has built on this heritage expanding the footwear collection to introduce outerwear, bags and accessories, to protect from the weather and perform across all terrains. This includes the function-driven pieces designed for outdoor performance in both rural and urban environments.

Hunter Boots fit true to size with the regular fit. If you are in-between sizes, have a wider calf or want to wear a thick sock, it is recommended to size up. 

Wipe clean and leave to dry naturally, away from direct sunlight or artificial heat. Cold, soapy water.  

Over time the natural rubber of your boots may begin to release a white powdery bloom due to insoluble particles rising to the top after time and movement. Whilst this is completely natural and does not impact the durability of your boot, if you would like to restore your boot to how it looked before, you just need to use a boot buffer or boot shine.
