Product: Posh Welly, Women’s Premium Welly
I didn't own a good quality pair of wellies so when the huge downpour hit the UK at the start of the year I desperately needed a pair which were going to be hard wearing. i did my research and the ones that came up tops were the Posh Wellies from Joules. I chose the black wellies in a size 4. The wellies are available in five different colours; Black, Green, Navy, Pink, Yellow and are available in sizes 3-8.
I found that my wellies were true to size. My order arrived extremely quickly and they were beautifully packaged in a lovely matt floral printed cardboard box. The quality and detail of the boots are fantastic. I find a lot of women’s wellies can look boring and frumpy but these are a lot prettier and much more feminine and girly. I was very pleasantly surprised as these looked much better in real life than what they did on the website.
The boots are black rubber and have a gold lined enamel joules plaque at the front of the boot just below the knee area; they also have a small cute buckle at the side of the boot which is adjustable and a striped stocking like red and yellow lining which runs down the middle of the back of the boot. The boots also have a pretty floral silky lining which I feel is a nice added extra touch and finishes off the look of the boots nicely. The boots have exceptional cold weather resistance, a new tread pattern for enhanced grip and a hardwearing rubber sole.
These are extremely comfortable, practical and are of a great design. I’m really pleased with my wellies; they are perfect for town and country and are built to last season after season, perfect. In all honesty I’m not sure if I would pay £69.95 again for a pair of wellies but I can definitely tell and feel the difference between these and a cheaper pair that I own. I know that I will be opting for these ones each time I need to wear this particular footwear so maybe it is worth spending that little bit more.
Huge thumbs up for me.

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.
