This week’s Shoes News: a wet weather special

Hunter’s shower proof canvas shoes

I know it’s not April just yet, but regular observers of the UK weather will know that it rains EVERY MONTH here, so this may not be the first wet weather special Shoes News I bring you in the long term. But for now, it’s two stories and they’re both corkers.


Proving that it’s a brand that offers more than just traditional Wellington boots, Hunter has just brought out a range of shower proof canvas sneakers. They’re water resistant, though as the name suggests, I would perhaps stick to your regular Hunter wellies for torrential downpours. They’re available in black, white, pink and my fav, camouflage.

From £70,

Ilse Jacobsen trainer wellies

You might have seen me waxing lyrical about these on my Instagram account recently. One of my fav wellie brands, Ilse Jacobsen, has released a sort of wellie hybrid – part trainer, part rubber boot – and they look so good that I wore them to London Fashion Week. They are a little tricky to track down in the UK though; although does stock the brand, they don’t currently have this style, but you can find them at the Ilse Jacobsen store in Tunbridge Wells.

Right, I’m off to Paris Fashion Week. Will report back soon!
