Hunter, the American-British rubber company, got its start in the clothing industry the way any respectable English designer does—by keeping Britain’s soldiers warm and dry. In the last ten years the company has seen a significant increase in popularity, becoming the go-to Wellington boot for almost everybody—the Queen herself included. But in a clever attempt to target customers who want the dry feet Hunter famously provides without the off-duty gardener or mounted officer look, Hunter designed a shorter style, named the Chet, with elastic sides. Perhaps for the first time ever, a Wellington boot finally stops conveniently at the ankle.
Hunter Chet boot, $125.
