For me, Hunter wellies bridge the gap between function and style perfectly.
But, I've been wearing them longer than it has been fashionable to have a pair in your closet. I just love now when I need to put on boots to go study a stream or get through some mucky field, I look so stylish.
And, I can promise, I will still be wearing them when it is no longer so hip!
