No longer the province of the elderly or infirm, Wellies and Walking Stix' are now the must have addition to the 'trendies' wardrobe. Wellies, or 'Gumboots' as my dad used to call them, are no longer boring black,blue or green and sensible, mud protectors, they have grown into the domain of 'the Chelsea Set' with their bright colours,patterns, stripes and designer labels, along with matching/co-ordinating Walking Stix. For Dogs, their owners don't need to be 'sniffed' out, they are instantly, visually recognisable,in some very expensive Wellies and 'Walkie Stix', parading in town and country alike. A new lease of life has been afforded, to utility items, just as Doc Marten did for hob-nailed boots!

Both my daughters went and bought themselves fashionable wellies in a country that has no deeper snow than 2cm and maybe one downpour of rain a season - but they wear them anyway - I think the new trend is awesoeme

@Inlemay Like all good girl guides...Be Prepared... good for them...puddle paddling doesn't necessarily require water, a sense of humour will do

Are they very popular in United Kingdom? I never see people wearing gumboots here.

@LadyDuck Extremely...even when the weather doesn't require them and often in towns/cities, where at one time, you never saw a 'wellied foot'....

I've seen the wellies, but not any matching walking stix. They look fun.

They come in all sorts of patterns now, don't they? You'd probably be battling to buy black ones now.

I will stick to my boring green wellies thank you very much. My wife has a fluorescent pink pair and my daughter and grand daughter have matching leopard print wellies.!
