For years, wellies have been a constant in the life of us Countryfolk - there's no greater feeling in the world (may be exaggerating) than sticking on a pair of wellies and sloshing around until you can't tell your legs from the mud. Wellies were usually only available in two shades: Black and Khaki. But no more - with the rising popularity of open-air gigs and festivals, the welly has made a huge leap (ha! leap...*tumbleweed*) in terms of fashion.
So, partly inspired by my current obsession with Oxegen, and partly by this post on Nancy XO's blog, I give you my top five awesome wellies - and not a farmer in sight.
1: Black Studded

So, nobody can ever accuse the humble wellington of being boring ever again. My personal favourite of the 5 is the first one - but then again, I'd add studs to every single piece of footwear I own if I could. I don't think we're going to see any of these designs making an appearance at any Mart around the country any time soon, but it would definitely brighten things up a bit.
As usual, when things like this fall into the hands of high-end designers - it all goes a bit Pete Tong. Check these out:
