A Review of Rockfish Wellies

A Review of Rockfish Wellies

Wellies, its such a British word isn’t it.

Or do you prefer wellingtons? Much posher and twice as British.  They’re the boots you wear to keep your feet dry, so in essence, you’re thinking about the weather, and what do us Brits do?

Yes! We talk about the weather!

So it makes perfect sense, the footwear of our country should be the welly.

I bloomin’ love mine, they’re quick to put on, make light work of a morning dog walk up on the common and are pretty much the only year round footwear I own. (I’m strictly a summer flip flop winter boots sort of gal) I’ve done school runs in them, supermarket trips and long country walks. So my comfort bar in these rubber encased footwear is set pretty high and with versatility on  the menu, if they look good, even better.

Rockfish wellies do all the above and some. A new British brand in luxury wellies, based in my neighbouring county Cornwall, they are handcrafted and built to last. I’ve had some in the past which have cracked after a season’s, sometimes less, use but Rockfish’s unique rubber formula mean that this shouldn’t be a problem and they even offer a 12 month guarantee. If you’re a serious welly wearer or just like to pretend to be one, then these are the real deal.

Lets just say I have high hopes for these beauties!

These 2 tone zipper back ones really stand out from your average, everyday wellies. mixing practical with on trend, you can pull off that Brit cool look with ease. They remind me of the glamour of a seamed stocking.  At £99 a pair, you expect a little more than your average everyday pair and the quick delivery and packaging gave hints of that straight away.

There are lots of nice little extra touches too, like the limited edition Rockfosh logo embellished on the side and the internal logo print as well as the adjustable calf giving room for a funky pair of welly socks. The  footbed is nicely cushioned too with a slight heal and a god grip to make light work of any muddy walks.

They’re designed for the equestrian market but as the nearest I ever get to that is making clip clop noises to the Toddler as we pass the stables opposite my house, so mine were put to the test on my morning dog walks. And passed.

With the rubber being quite think and the upper section adjustable, I could easily get thicker socks on and would be quite happy wearing these in snow and ice. So in answer to my statement, how to look fabulous in wellies, it’s simple. Get a nice, glamorous pair like these which not only look good, but feel good and do what wellies should. That way you’ll not be caught out complaining of cold wet feet and can strut your welly walk stuff with style. If you want to go that extra mile, team with dark skinny jeans, a tweed jacket or mac but try to colour co-ordinate if you’re wearing a coloured pair.

I personally, would leave the colour to the wellies and go for a subtle, neutral shade on top, leaving your feet doing the talking.

    Ooh these are great I like the shorter style (that’s because I have chunky calves) they look like they have great grip too, which is brilliant for this slippery wet weather. Very exciting competition. Thanks for sharing #sharewithme

    Love the zip on those wellies – so much easier for tucking in trousers/jeans and bottoms!!!! Love the colour too! Thank you for another wonderful review and giveaway!

    Love the zipper boots. Great colour. Just a shame I have fat legs and so far have only found one pair of ugly mens hunter books that will fit round my calves, and even then, they’re too tight round the leg for jeans really. I just wish someone would make custom sized boots (or wide fit and not the ones with just the silly little opening bit at the top because tat doesn’t work either for me.)

      You should try these with the zip, I’m sure they’d be fine.

    These look perfect I really love the look of the two tone colour wellies shown in the pictures and all the little details mentioned they seem perfect as I also have a dog and enjoy my long walks unfortunately I haven’t found a pair of wellies long lasting or suitable from your review see seem perfect particularly the sole cushioning due to my heavy footing and I particularly like the zip aspect perfect for easier access over bulky winter sooks I often wear fab giveaway and review

      Thank Katie, I think as they are designed for horse riding they’re going to last. They are amazingly comfy too.

    I always remember to get my girls kitted out for the rain but never me. These look fab. I have fat calves, and one is bigger than the other, due to medical reasons. So the zip would be so handy. I love the bit of colour to them. I never thought I would say this but wellies look kinda stylish.

I'd love to know what you think?
