Once reserved for fishermen and dog walkers, the most unexpected noughties footwear revival has to be that of the humble welly.

No image of wellington boots is more etched in our memory than that of Kate Moss walking arm in arm with Pete Doherty at Glastonbury in 2005, bare legs out and dark navy Hunter wellies on.

The look became so iconic that apparently it saved Hunter from going into administration, thanks to a dramatic sales increase.  Today the British heritage brand continues to enjoy the Moss-effect and is popular for festival goers and farmers alike. Fast forward to 2023, the waterproof footwear saviour is a total festival must-have - especially where British weather is concerned...
