I decided a couple of months ago that I wanted some wellies as I needed some appropriate footwear for walking my dogs on muddy tracks. I was looking for some wellies that were feminine and I had Hunters in mind originally but the price of them (£65+) put me off!
I came across Joules Posh wellies in my local garden centre and soon as I saw them, I knew I wanted them! The colour I brought was Saddle which is a lovely chocolate brown colour however the wellies also come in a dark olive colour and maroon/dark pink. They have a large enamel plaque on the front the welly with 'Tom Joules' written on it and on my wellies the plaque is a mustard yellow colour with gold writing. The wellies have a grosgrain ribbon bow at the back which is adjustable and the bow gives these wellies a really nice touch! The wellies have a glossy finish and are made from a good synthetic material and are great in snow and rain. They are easy to clean and have a good, sturdy sole and I am confident that they will last me a long time. These wellies are so pretty you can get away with wearing them anywhere!
Another bonus is that my Posh wellies came in a special Joules welly bag which is a see-through duffel style with a drawing of wellies on the front- nice touch! I have worn these wellies many times now and they are very comfortable and roomy, even without welly socks. I am a size 5.5 but I brought the 5 which fitted well with a little room to spare so if you are in between sizes, I would definitely recommend going down sizes.
Joules Posh wellies are unfortunately not cheap at £59 but they will last a long time. They can be brought from joules.com, many internet retailers and I think John Lewis may stock them too. I was lucky enough to buy mine from a local garden centre who had a sale on all of the Joules range so I got these for half price, I couldn't believe my luck! So my tip is to check your local garden centre to see if you can pick these up any cheaper :)
I don't really have anything bad to say about these wellies. The bow at the back I guess could be a little impractical and can get splashed with mud but as long as the bow is trailing down the back it shouldn't be an issue.
