Whether the mad rush for Glastonbury has got us thinking about what to pack seriously far in advance, or it's because our trainers have simply not been able to cope with the sudden downpours, wellies have been weighing heavy on our minds of late. But, if we're totally honestly, they're not the sort of purchase we look forward to. Though seriously practical in a UK climate, they usually lose out in favour of fancy heels or a killer new boot until festival season rolls around and we panic buy the first pair we can find. But what if we told you we'd had a change of heart, and that wellies were suddenly at the top of our wishlists for winter? Because that's what's happened, and it's all thanks to FitFlop - and their aptly named WonderWelly.

The Best Wellies Of 2019: Make A Splash With FitFlop's New WonderWelly
FitFlop have finally answered all our wet weather struggles with the launch of their WonderWelly boot! Think dry feet, endless comfort and an upgrade on the typical welly style - aka. the best wellies of 2019. Naturally, we've bought one in every colour...
Over the years FitFlop have revolutionised the way we think about footwear. They are a brand that care about practicality and comfort above all and have shaken up the stigma that women should have to wear uncomfortable shoes such as heels or sandals that are designed to look pretty but don’t give your feet the support they need. Fans of the brand include cult heroine and fashion icon Uma Therman who said “It's fun being super glamorous...but there's another kind of glamour in wellness, and I think that's the glamour of these shoes.” Now Fitflop are the first fashion footwear brand to revolutionise the notoriously uncomfortable welly boot. The welly is essential for trudging in the rain, muddy festivals and countryside walks however, on the whole they are prone to give blisters and never slip on or off comfortably and the thought of having to put them on can be daunting. For decades we’ve been putting up with the uncomfortable wellington but, alas, there's no need to any longer as their brand new WonderWelly launch has come and saved the day.
The WonderWelly is the 21st century answer to the welly boot that makes you feel like you’re wearing a trainer. Using an expert team of biomechanics FitFlop have re-engineered the welly giving it a flexible sole to accompany your feet with springboards, a contoured insole and an impact-absorbing heel – with design like that you’ll be able to run a marathon in them. The boots come in a rainbow array of 6 colours from toned down navies and blacks to bright and cheerful reds and pinks - yay! You're able can choose from a short or tall size depending on how deep you’re willing to get stuck into those puddles, we use the short pair to do our gardening and the long pair for those long old walks which stop our dogs from spraying mud all over us.
We’re delighted that a boot now exists that provides comfort and support without compromising on style so we'll be able to out-glam everyone at Glastonbury whilst staying snug. Make all your friends jealous by getting a pair whilst they're still fresh off the block! We've picked out our favourites below but if you want a better look at their selection take a look at their website too.
