Men's Fashion: Can Men Wear Hunter Boots or UGGs (or Both)?
Why Are Men Wearing UGG Boots?
Snow, it’s a bugger! It's slippery and wet and treacherous. Likewise, moving to or even just visiting the countryside is a big change from being in an urban, built-up city area such as London. Out in the sticks or in weather conditions like heavy rain, sleet and snow, a pair of Hunter wellies are essential because you at least want to look great when you step on a patch of ice or mud and fall on your bum.
In London, wellies were always just those extra pair of boots in your cupboard that never saw daylight, but they have transformed into beautiful looking Hunter wellies or rain boots (as the Americans call them). They are no longer those ill-fitting, hideous green things that your teacher at school would force you to wear and as a result. We are now seeing girls and guys wearing them as some kind of fashion statement. Yes! Guys too!
Hunter caters to men as well, but for some reason, there are strange beings out there (men) who think they can get away with walking the streets in women’s UGG boots. UGG boots look terrible on women! Never mind men.
Hunter Boots for Every Need
Anyone living in rural areas will normally have a decent pair of wellies that they keep in their cars for those muddy days. However, apart from living out in the sticks or on a farm, there are other uses for those gorgeous Hunter wellies. Many people living in urban areas will normally have some sort of garden, even people living in flats will have a communal garden that will require looking after and so wellies can be useful for those green-fingered types who are always pottering about and not forgetting all that horrid rain and snow—London is not exempt. No one likes to get to work only to realize the bottoms of their trousers are completely soaked . . . socks too.
And yes, they have become the latest in festival trends as well as the fashion of any type of sub-cultural group remotely inclined to festival going such as emo, goth, new-age hippies, witches, wiccans, wizards or just plain old rockers and rock chicks. All and anyone going to a festival at some time during the year will want a pair of Hunter wellies. And, even if you’re not going to any festivals, then you will want a pair anyway, just to keep up with the fashion phenomenon that is the festival welly movement.
Hunter Wellies Are Just Beautiful
Hunter wellies look simply beautiful on women as well as men and I haven’t felt so drawn to a pair of shoes or boots in years. They are unique, different, inventive, and best of all they are a fashionable commodity. Anything, which is both useful and fashionable, is a must-have item.
The Carnaby Boa Snake Short are, according to Hunter, perfect for urban life. Looking great as an ordinary boot while also useful for those typical British summer days . . . you know, the rainy ones.
The thing I love about Hunter wellies are all those lovely colours and laces and buckles in places never before seen on wellies. No more unsightly green, you can have shiny blues and pinks or some nice flowery design or texture, obviously, minus the pink and flowers for all the real men out there, Hunter have some delicious styles that are manly and irresistible.
Keep Your Feet Warm With Hunter Boots
Hunter wellies are a little expensive but, what can you expect from such a unique brand that teams up with names like Jimmy Choo? And there are plenty to choose from for younger boys and for men.
For men, there is a huge range of what Hunter call unisex and they have been designed to perfection. My favourite unisex designs are the lace-ups because since when did you ever have a pair of lace-up wellies? They’re just so perfect for those that need to be different.
And this great dream of Hunter wellies doesn’t end with their huge amount of uniqueness—they also do accessories! Yes, accessories! For those festival goers or snow fighters, you can buy a cute little welly pouch to keep all your money in or you can buy welly socks to keep your feet cozy. Hunter even sells boot bags for you to keep your pair in without folding them over and ruining them. Really, what could be more perfect?
There you have it. Hunter boots are perfect for all your booting needs and UGG boots are just ugly, so ditch ‘em!
