Whether you're in the garden, on a short stroll, or exploring the countryside, keeping your feet comfy is key. Many people to choose to throw on their wellies for these occasions.
In autumn and winter though, it's muddy, wet and chill outside. Keeping your feet warm and dry is a must! A bit of insulation can go a long way in helping to keep your feet warm, dry and comfy. So to help you with picking the best Wellington boots, we've got our top two tips for you!
Tread for a secure grip
Although this doesn’t affect the thermal framework of wellies, tread is important when choosing wellies that are perfect for all terrains. A weak tread can have us slipping and sliding over frozen and wet ground so look out for a well-defined tread with a good grip.

Thick lining to keep you warm
Wellington boots are typically lined with materials to offer some comfort but when we’re on the hunt for good insulation, opting for wellies with a lining such as fleece, faux fur, or wool is a good option for keeping your feet cosy during those chilly walks.
Our Merry People boots are made with a flexible neoprene lining (think wetsuit material), making them perfect for the cold and icy weather, because they prevent heat from escaping.
