Wonderful winter wellies and boots

Just because it’s January – and wet, cold, and icy – let’s celebrate the Great British winter walk and the boots that keep you and kids snug and dry on your adventures. Here’s our round-up of the best wellies and winter boots (and the good news is that some are on sale, if you’re quick…)

Fern ankle wellies (£29.95, White Stuff,

More fashionable than the average mini-wellington, these women’s boots have a lovely botanical pattern and polka dot lining. Thick tread too, so less chance of frozen feet.
Expand Image

Classic Flower Stripes Girls’ Winter Boots (£60,

These great winter boots by Bogs are waterproof and feature the special Neo-Tech insulation to keep toes warm and cosy in rain, sleet and snow. Handy handles help littles ones pull on their boots by themselves. 
Expand Image

Mid-height wellies (£29.95, Seasalt,

Great with a pair of skinnies on weekend walks, these mid-calf boots are top quality and a good investment that should last well for many winters to come. Cheery colour too!
Expand Image

Pull-on boots (size 4-12, £12, Next,

Well, aren’t these adorable? With sturdy loops, little ones should be able to pull on and take off these boots with ease, making them perfect for back and forth to nursery, school and friends’ houses.

Nordic Grip non-slip ankle boots (£44.95,

If you’re worried about slipping on ice, these award-winning boots from Norway are the answer. They’ve got patented IceLock Technology that grips with tiny ‘teeth’ so you can walk with confidence (ideal when you’re pregnant). And they come in a range of cute colours.

Blackfox sheepskin-style waterproof wellies (£24.95,

Hmmm, wellingtons masquerading as comfy slipper boots: we love! These boots are completely waterproof and actually made from PVC with a suede-look finish. Plus they come in both kids’ and adult sizes so you can matchy-matchy.

Disney Frozen fur-lined boot (£19.95, Shoe Zone,

Sturdier than wellies, these boots are perfect for rough and tumble this winter but pretty enough to be paired with woolly tights and a dress for little princesses. 
Expand Image

Children’s spot snowboots (from £14, George at Asda,

What a shame these don’t come in adult sizes… Cool, classic and a lot of fun, these snowboots deliver warmth and comfort thanks to a trainer-like sole and plenty of faux fur.
Expand Image

Peppa Pig snowboots (from £14, George at Asda,

In sizes 4 to 10, these sweet little boots are simple to get on and off and the Velcro strap means they can be adjusted to fit perfectly.
Expand Image

Welligogs camouflage wellington boots (£9.99, Shoe Zone,

Plenty of attitude and an extra-chunky sole to keep little feet warm and dry. Tie the toggle top if your tot plans to get really splashy in the rain…
Expand Image

Wellibob ankle wellies (£34.95, Joules,

The great thing about an ankle welly is that they’re kind to swollen legs and aching calves, not to mention easy to slip on and off without bending down, so they’re a safe option for mums-to-be. And these are rather chic.
Expand Image

Shark print wellies (in junior size 3 to children’s size 13, £24.95, Joules,

It’s so fun to have a shark print on a welly: you might expect it on beachwear but winter boots? That’s cute. These are good-looking and made to last. 
Expand Image

Spider snowboots (£29, Start-Rite,

Pirate spiders? We’re on board with THAT plan. Little ones will want to wear these lovely snowboots all winter, whether it’s a skiing holiday or walk in the park.
Expand Image

Blue wellies (in size 7 to adult 2.5, £20, Clarks,

Simple design, classic good looks, the comfort and support that’s guaranteed from Clarks’ children’s shoes. A sound investment, and available in half sizes, too.
Expand Image

Leather snowboots (in sizes 7 to 12, £60, Clarks,

Made with breathable Gore-Tex so they’re waterproof and insulated, these boots are a luxe option at that price but worth it if your child is out in all weathers every day.
Expand Image

Women’s Arctic Venture boots (£35 in sale, Clarks,

Bit of a bargain for mum. Solid but stylish, these Canadian-style duckboots will see you through several winters and the hiking-boot sole makes them super-comfy.
Expand Image

Mantaray woodland print wellies (in size 4 to 12, from £13, Debenhams,

Bears, trees and a cosy fur lining: we’re sold. With loops on both sides and a pull-tab at the back, kids will have no trouble getting their boots on even when mum’s not there to help.
Expand Image

Bluezoo floral wellies (in size 4 to 12, from £10, Debenhams,

A hint of spring in deepest winter. Girls will love these charming wellies with their cheerful flower print. Keep by the back door for wearing in the garden all year round.
Expand Image

Star Wars wellies (from £9 from George at Asda,

Now the Force can be with you on your winter travels. Nice to see some Star Wars merchandise at an affordable price, too…
Expand Image

Dragon wellies (from £12, BHS,

Got a dragon fan in the family? Buy them these sweet little winged wellies and enjoy Brownie points all the way to Easter.
Expand Image

Children’s snow boots (£14.40 in the sale, JoJo Maman Bébé,
