Stylish mud-proofing at Glastonbury 2009

Posted by Toni on June 22nd, 2009

Hunter WelliesThe summer’s most glamorous festival is almost here. That might sound like an oxymoron, but this weekend at Glastonbury will see more sequins than the Strictly reunion tour. And, if you haven’t been able to secure suitably stylish accommodation at Charlton House down the road (or Babington House half an hour away), you may find yourself facing the fields with some trepidation. Well here’s one couture comfort that almost makes tenting it worthwhile…

Anyone who’s ever braved the trip past Stonehenge knows that the only must-have at Glasto is a pair of wellies, and the fashion houses are falling over themselves to dress mud-loving A-listers in rubber.

Yes, yes, Jimmy Choo might have created a pair of wellies so exclusive that even the fashion eds can’t get their hands on them.
But if you are what you wear (and let’s face it, you are) wouldn’t you rather give a more charitable message through your rubber boots?

Step up Water Aid’s collaboration with Hunter. £10 from the £60 sale price of these boots goes straight to the Wateraid charity. Plus they’re classic black so they’ll go with everything (darling).

Available at Topshop or www.hunter-boot.com.
