I have the wellington boots in high gloss black, and for a couple of weeks they looked like this:
But now they look more like this:
My question is: I'm planning to buy the carnaby model (as in the picture below), but is it just as easy to get white marks on that model? Anyone who owns a pair of those that could tell me?
The white marks are actually wax from within the boot, so they'll all get them. You can buy a special spray or sponge polish from Hunter that will get rid of them, but a normal silicone based shoe polish will sort them out just as well.
How do they run?
I am looking at getting a pair of the tall, original in black (not glossy) - normally a UK 3 - 3.5, should I get them in UK 4 so they are comfortable with thicker tights/socks?
I've been lusting after the Original Gloss pair in Graphite, even though I think beige looks better and would be better for the Spring rainy days. I really wish I could justify paying so much for a rain boot.
Ah, Hunters are the best of the best! I've been wearing them for as long as I can remember, having grown up in the countryside, and my parents and grandparents have always donned a pair of Hunters. I currently have three pairs, all in the classic shades of green, navy and black. I wear the green pair the most... though to be honest I get a good amount of wear out of all of them; I wear them every day, I'd say, for everything from mucking out the horses to walking the dog to going shooting. For the latter they really are brilliant, in my opinion, even though many people seem to opt for Le Chameau (which are very comfortable but, nevertheless, I will stand by my Hunters!).
I would like to get a pair of red or silver Hunters at some point, but then again I feel like the colour would be wasted on me; wellies, for me, are a necessity rather than a fashion statement!
