Colour of Wellies

Wellies come in an absolutely massive variety of colours, so I have to ask you lot, what colour is your favourite to wear? Mine's red. :P

Wellies come in all sorts of colours up to size UK8 (EU42), but try getting those same colours in bigger sizes and you'll find there's not much of a choice!

Who really cares about the colour. Its the fun you have wearing them. The feel and smell of the rubber is the same regardless of the colour........lol

I feel your pain. We're pretty much limited to black, navy, green, dark green, really dark green, even darker navy so it's indistinguishable from black, olive, and brown.

Favorite to wear are yellow and dark blue (not quite navy), favorite to look at on women are red, and pretty much all of the glossy Hunter colors

Yellow because it is my favorite color. i have a pair of yellow hunters and and blue ones as well both of which are shiny. strangely the yellow ones are much stiffer like the navy ones i have used to have. the blue ones feel a lot softer and more rubbery. i also have a pair of black and grey juicy couture rain boots, which i find more fun to wear than the hunters but are sadly a smaller size so they only fit without insoles.

You're missing a trick if you only have one pair :-)

I have several pairs of black Hunters, plain black, and two special editions in black, one pair are higher than normal, very tall festival wellies. I also have red Hunters and also glossy black Hunter look alikes. Oh, and some green wellies with a pink stripe at the back!

I like the black best, glossy or matt, but probably prefer glossy most.

I also have three pairs of black rubber thigh waders, different makes, and I use them a lot for working in rivers and streams.
