Wellington boots explicitly designed for long, muddy excursions with your pup can make an enormous difference to your foot health!
Merry People focuses on quality and joy above all else. We know that the best dog walking wellies need to be supportive, insulating, and made of tough enough stuff to cope with brambles, streams, and uneven woodland pathways you may be walking on.
If you're wondering how should wellies fit to provide optimal stability and balance, we'll run through some advice to help you choose your perfect wellies for walking your dog!
Fitting Tips For The Best Wellies for Dog Walking
The first thing to point out is that the best garden wellies for a gentle potter around your lawns aren't going to be the stand-out choice for everyday dog walks (especially if your canine companion likes to go out walking multiple times a day!).
That's because, as you walk through parks, pathways, or fields, your feet absorb more pressure than you might think. It's crucial to choose the best wellies that can handle unpredictable terrain:
- Rough terrain, such as stones or bumpy paths, can easily result in a twisted ankle, sprain, or other injuries as your joints and muscles try to cope with sudden shifts and changes.
- Arch support is essential, as your foot arch helps your foot to flex and adjust to unstable ground.
- Poorly fitting shoes can cause many issues, from blisters to sore spots and even long-term injuries.
Wellington boots need to combine both durability and stability. The best wellies help you keep your footing and ensure your toes are toasty warm while providing support where you need it.
Choosing the Right Dog Walking Wellies
Now we've covered the basics, let's talk about the features incorporated in every pair of lovingly engineered Merry People Wellington Boots that lend themselves perfectly to days out with your dog.
Wellie Boot Fit
Whatever you wear your welly boots for, a great fit is crucial. Even the best-made shoe won't function well with a bad fit. We offer a variety of welly sizes to ensure a good fit for everyone.
Our wellies act as a snug, lightweight, weatherproof boot with a wide range of sizes. We include information on each welly product page to explain the correct sizing options for walkers with half shoe sizes.
The outdoors are for everyone, and our welly ranges include sizes to fit men, women, and kids.
Foot and Ankle Support
Support matters, and it sets apart generic wellingtons that do little but keep your socks dry!
Merry People Wellingtons are designed with arch support to keep your feet ready to go on the longest of walks, without pressure point pain.
Higher profile wellingtons are perfect if you find yourself in boggy spots on your dog walks. And a clog is a fantastic option for summer walks—keeping your feet stable and supported.
Outdoor Wellie Materials
We invest a lot of research and love into sourcing and testing materials to create the ultimate dog walking welly made with materials to counter the elements.
Natural rubber is supple and durable with a neoprene lining that is waterproof and tested to ensure year-round warmth. Our neoprene lined wellington boots are perfect for dog walkers no matter what the weather is!
We make our wellington boots with one hundred percent vegan products, including vegan glues, with smart features such as handy cotton pull-tabs and adjustable gussets on some styles to cater to your exact calf size.
Traction In Walking Wellies
Traction can determine whether that slippery slope ends in a spill—or whether you're able to traverse it as if you're on four paws!
If you're often heading for the hills and ground you know is slippery at best, we'd suggest our Bobbi Boots featuring an advanced traction sole design to give you that extra grip when you need it.
We invest in independent lab testing to verify the quality of the traction properties available, so you can stride out the door with confidence that your wellington boots have your back.
Wellies For Outdoor Walking Confidence
The secret to enjoying your quiet sunrise walks with your dog or those cool crisp winter days is to have a pair of exceptional quality wellingtons that will keep up with the pace of your life.
Merry People loves adventure and recognises that confidence is key to ensuring you can explore and make the most of your outdoor spaces without worrying about falls or trips that could spell disaster.
Along with our attention to detail in every design feature and fabric, we create stylish, chic, and classic wellingtons to cater to your personality.
Pick from rich red hues, deep alpine green, or a bright splash of mustard yellow, for our collection of the best wellington boots.
