Hunter Thigh-High Wellies – Seriously!

'Osten' Hunter thigh high boot
Gone fishing! Hunter's Osten boot

When we think Hunter, we think practical rain wear—but who says you can’t have a little fun with practical rain wear?

The ubiquitous wellies brand is now selling thigh-high rubber boots—yes, you read that right—exclusively on its U.K. Web site, Fashion Foie Gras points out.

Available in shiny red, yellow, and metallic gold, the Osten boots are less Pretty Woman and more pretty wader!

The super-tall wellies even come with suspender straps meant to loop over your belt to keep them up.

Practical touches aside, though, Hunter clarifies on its site that they’re “fashion footwear” only—“not for fishing use.”

Hey, at least you can safely jump in a giant puddle!

The Osten boots retail for £150.00 (or about $233 U.S.).
