When Joules sent over a pair of wellies last week, I had no idea I’d get the opportunity to wear them so soon! Aren’t they just the cutest way to brighten up a blustery winter day? I’ll admit that the color sucked me in initially, but the practical features made me truly fall in love with them. The boots have a slim ankle, but still adjust for shapely calves with the buckle at the side. And, while I was skeptical of the website’s claim to “exceptional cold weather resistance,” I was comfortable in the snow with just a pair of tights underneath. (That’s not something I can do with my Hunter pair without a thick pair of hiking socks for extra warmth.) Bottom line: thumbs up. Check out the full range of patterns and colors here.
