The third guy looks as though he is wearing Marc Jacobs rain boots.

I'm wearing my brown Hunter wellies with Hunter fleece socks right now!
These new fleece socks are so warm and comfortable!

I have the wellington boots in high gloss black, and for a couple of weeks they looked like this:


garden4less.com

But now they look more like this:


forum.purseblog.com

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?

Try Loeffler Randall's Back Zip Rain Boot.

They're amazing, chic, and not bulky at all --a problem I had with Hunters.

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.

^I Bought those last week aswell for a trip to dorset on monday, with the weather as it is in the UK i've worn them most of this week, they are extremely comfortable and warm and so worth the money.

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?
Thanks!

^I got my normal size 11 and there was more than enough room for thick socks, infact i wore them with 3 pairs of thick socks, so i would probably go for your normal size.

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.

I can not get over how much I love my hunters!! I just have a pair in plain black but they are honestly the best money I've ever spent!

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!
