^If you know you'll be spending loads of time outside/in the country or whatever then I'd say go for it. I've never lived in the UK but I've spent a lot of time visiting family and I've always wished that I had a pair when visiting the fam. We once went to a concert which ended up being in the rain and I really regretted having to borrow my aunties wellies which were a size too big. So I know that if (more like when) I move to the UK I'll certainly be buying a pair. And personally, I like the olive Hunters on both men and women. To me they are a classic.

I'm wondering if a pair of tall black (regular not glossy) could be worn as a winter boot instead of just a rain boot. Obviously when the weather gets bad (snowing and such) it would be deemed appropriate but what about on those chilly fall days with no perception? Would that be weird?
