Living by the coast and countryside, we’re a family who love embracing muddy days out. So when the minis were given the chance to review Hunter kids’ Chelsea Boots, we were more than happy to oblige.
The gorgeous Gum Sole Chelsea Boots arrived, wrapped up in signature Hunter packaging, one morning after nursery. Explaining to Mr T we had to save them to take on a family day out first, he decided to wear them round the house for three days and leave them by his bed to admire. L was similarly keen, particularly sold by the heel, which she saw as extremely glam.
The weekend arrived and we headed out for a rainy trip in the leaves, squelching in mud and sludge. A brilliant pair of boots, they were robust enough to shelter from the elements yet suitably slimline to head out for lunch in afterwards. The elastic side gussets make them flexible for movement and the waterproof rubber and gum sole ensures true Hunter-style practicality.
I love the unisex colours too, especially after drowning in a sea of garish pink wellies for years. L’s are a mixture of midnight blue, mineral blue and porcelain blue, while T is sporting a pair which combine iron oxide, umber and mineral blue. The added bonus of course being, I can pass L’s boots down to Mr T.
Despite getting caked in mud during the course of the weekend, the wellies look good as new after a wipe down. All ready for next weekend’s outside adventures, we’ll also be well prepared if/when any snow arrives.
Priced at £45, I’d say these kids’ Hunter’s were an investment worth making, as with the Chelsea detail, they’re winter boots as well as wellies. In fact, I’ve struggled to get them off their feet…
The children’s boots were kindly gifted to us by Hunter, for the purpose of this review.
