Men's Wellington Boots
Few aspects of work wear or fashion have been immune to change. What we wear today bears little resemblance to our wardrobes just 20 years ago let alone 50 years ago. But wellingtons have been with us for a century and are still must have footwear for people who spend time in the great outdoors. Explore our range of mens wellington boots here at CWFS Ltd.
The History of Wellingtons
Wellington boots evolved from a style created for the Duke of Wellington to make riding easier and more comfortable. But it was when Charles Goodyear invented the vulcanisation process for rubber that the boots as we know them today became widely available and affordable. Boot maker Hiram Hutchinson bought the patent for rubber boots and made styles for farm workers in France which were an instant success. Rubber boots also proved invaluable to soldiers in the
trenches during the First World War.
Wellingtons were again issued to soldiers in World War II and by the end of the hostilities, the boots had become extremely popular with civilians. By this time, the boots were much roomier and had a more rounded toe than the original designs.
Wellington Boots Today
So, wellingtons are a style of footwear that we recognise instantly but that doesnt mean that the boots havent been improved over the years. Today, the boots feature a variety of materials and constructions and there are styles which have been developed to suit different working environments and leisure pursuits.
